What you experienced is likely a result of the treatment due to the where the tattoo ink lies in the dermis.  Treating a tattoo with laser assisted removal causes irritation to the skin similar to server sunburn, which can cause swelling and small blisters immediately or a few days after treatment.  Following post operative procedures will minimize your discomfort and speed your recovery.  “Dr. D”
