Is my tattoo cover up fixable with laser removal?
about 2 years ago I had a tattoo cover up and I havnt been happy with it since because you can still see the old tattoo(green star) underneath it. I was thinking about getting laser to remove some of the ink so it wont be noticable but im afraid its going to leave a scar. is it possible to remove it even if I have had it tattooed over?
Short answer: yes, you could get the entire tattoo removed, but it would be a long, expensive and painful process, as that is quite a large tattoo!
Long answer: Your tattoo actually looks beautiful, and was very well done. Yes, you can still see the star, but cover-ups are difficult, and the artist has to work with what they're given. What I would suggest, rather than removing a very nice tattoo is going back to the artist and asking them to make parts of your tattoo a bit darker so that the star will be less noticeable. For instance, the green and blue parts of the swirls could be made darker so that the lines of the star blend in more. Talk to your artist -- a good one will do whatever it takes to make you happy with your piece, but also remember that sometimes a tattoo cannot be completely covered, especially if the outline is black.
Hope this helps!
Any laser removal would effect both layers of tattooing. So trying to erase the original ink would also destroy the coverup. You'd have to have the coverup work redone after having the overlapping work lasered.
Laser removal hurts as much as tattooing, but averages ten times the cost of tattling due to needing multiple removal sessions.
Yes, definitely that is fixable. Laser tattoo removal is proven safe and effective.
