I have a half sleeve of colorful vines and such. I want to fade it to a point where I can tattoo over it. What do you recommend?

An excellent laser with three separate wavelengths. We bought ours after learning that the most popular lasers often have 2 simulated lasers that are not powerful enough to remove certain colors. It may or may not be able to lighten your blues and greens enough. Most important is to not treat a very large area at one time. We break large areas up so people have much better results. Improving your immune system helps.

Q-switched laser treatments are the only way to fade a tattoo. Plan on
at least 2-3 treatments to get it light enough to go over, but this
depends on the colors.

I just got a tattoo on my ribcage that isn't very big. It is outlined in black ink and only shaded a bit inside. Very minimal color to it. I am a pale skinned girl and wanted to know if I will see complete results if I have it removed, or if it will only look faded.
