This is a large tattoo that will requite multiple treatments spaced every 6-8 weeks apart. Seek a package deal to have guaranteed removal of the tattoo. Costs could range from $3000+ for complete removal.

It is quite a large tattoo and it would take at least six treatments spaced over a period of a year to remove this tattoo permanently. There is no cream to remove it. Best, Dr. Green
Tattoo Removal estimate
The tattoo in your photo would be classified as "large to extra large", tribal type design and professionally done (therefore a high density of ink particles, tends to require more treatments). It would not be unusual to pay a few hundred dollars for a tattoo removal session for a design of this size. There is usually a price break if you purchase a series of sessions up front, and many practices have one or more companies they use to deliver interest free financing.The number of treatments- industry standard is 8 to 12 but you could be done in 6 or 7 if the laser device has excellent power and the provider has a lot of experience (makes good decisions on settings used). There is absolutely no cream that will help, don't waste your money. This is a very dynamic area (lots of movement)- I suggest you NOT consider other methods of removal (hypertonic saline, microneedling with acid, etc) as you will scar. There is at least one practice in North Carolina which has the Astanza Duality - an aesthetics-focused medical practice called Wake Health Medical Group-in the northern Raleigh area. The Duality has the highest peak power of any tattoo removal laser currently available (including picosecond lasers) so it does an excellent job and it is fast. Best,Lisa Vuich, MD
PicoWay Can Remove Black Tattoo Ink
Luckily, black ink is the easiest to remove. While it is not possible to predict how many sessions it will take to fully remove your tattoo without seeing you in person, generally it takes at least three sessions and perhaps as many as 5 or more to achieve optimal results. Consult with a board-certified dermatologist to find out more about how your particular tattoo will respond to PicoWay
