Redness after Tattoo Removal
The healing time of tattoo removal is 2-4 weeks. The redness you are experiencing can last a few days to a few weeks. If you are experiencing any pain please contact your treating physician.

Redness after Tattoo removal laser
In my experience, redness lasts a few days at most. I don't see anything worrisome at this point but please discuss with your provider.
