It Takes Time
A very important aspect of a tattoo removal journey is that it’s going to take time. In the above tattoo removal before and after pictures, you get a glimpse at the healing process. After each session, you will need to take weeks away for the area to heal. That’s why it can take a total of months or even a year to remove larger, dark tattoos.
