Lower eyelid tattoo removal
I would not recommend using an FUE punch to remove the tattoo below the lashes because the lower eyelid structures are very delicate. I would recommend making an appointment with a facial plastic or oculoplastic surgeon.
Removing tattoo on lower eyelid
Yes, a doctor who is skilled with a punch can remove these tattoos. We have done this before but never for the lower lid
Tattoo removal- different technology used to remove it
I would not try removing a tiny tattoo with an FUE punch around the eye. I would revisit a oculoplastic specialist with a laser and make sure they place a corneal shield. Also, depending on the dye use in the tattoo, it may fade over time.

an FUE punch is used to remove hair. I would not recommend an attempt at this as you can do far more damage to the lower lid than the dirty black ink.
Tattoo on lower lid
How long has this been there? See an oculoplastic surgeon for this one. Surgical excision is risky and this may simply fade with time. You may also lose those lower lashes with excision so consider living with it.
Eyelid Tattoo Removal
Tattoos are permanent but can fade with time. Do not have tattoo removal on eyelids with an FUE device. FUE devices can be used to remove hair plugs but are not meant to remove eyelid tattoos. The eyelids have a tarsal plate and mebomiam glands that could potentially be damaged by an FUE device.
FUE removal of eyelid lesion
I would not recommend an FUE punch. I recommend an evaluation by a physician comfortable excising lesions around the eye and eyelid. You don't want to cause any scarring in that area as it could lead to problems with the function of the eyelid.
FUE to remove tattoo in eyelash
I definitely would not recommend FUE procedure to remove tattoo. I recommend you get another opinion for laser removal.
FUE punches for eyelid tattoo removal
If you feel that you have seen an expert laser specialist (several not just one), you may want to speak with an occuloplastic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon. An FUE punch is not going to be used as scarring and contracture could potentially leave significant deformity and asymmetry of the eyelid.
FUE is not what you should be looking for. Make sure you've included a skilled cosmetic/laser dermatologist in your search for medical advice as well as the specialists mentioned above.
