What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
When you have a tattoo, the needle inserts ink deep in your skin. Though your immune system detects this foreign intruder and will try to attack it. The particles of ink are too big. The lasers break them down into smaller chunks so they can be flushed out of your system.

How do you get a cover up tattoo?
We have been tattooing for nearly 14 years in Bolton and in that time we have seen a lot of botched jobs and mistakes. So to get a cover up tattoo links perfectly with laser removal.
Firstly, Laser removal would be the first step and depending on your choice of tattoo would then depend on the amount of laser sessions you need. For example, you have found a very dark design to cover up the previous tattoo, in this case you might only need a couple of laser tattoo treatment to fade the piece.
How to choose a cover up tattoo
When you get a cover up tattoo the artist is not starting from scratch and will have to use their skills to blend, shade and add details to the faded piece so that it look great and the old tattoo is no longer visible.
When choosing a tattoo it’s better practice to seek out look through tattoo artist portfolios as you will get a better feel for their styles and find out if it’s right for you.
When can you cover up a tattoo
Every tattoo can be covered up. As mentioned above it may take a few laser sessions to fade the piece before you and your tattoo artist can plan out your tattoo idea and tattoo design.
