Is the PicoSure Laser appropriate for mid back or lower back tattoos? If not, why?

I need a name removed from my back but it is on the lower/mid back area. Can the PicoSure laser be used on this area? If not, why?

Picosure can be used on any area of the body. The key question is what color the tattoo is.

There are 4 or 5 picosecond lasers on the market. A laser that is appropriate for the color of ink is a better choice. 694 and 755nm is effective on green, blue, and black (and part of purple). 1094 is effective on black and dark blue, while 532nm is good for red, orange, yellow, brown, and part of purple.
