Spooky Ink

It�s a dark and stormy night. The trees are rustling at the window, your house seems alive, with creeks and squeeks, you turn the corner and AHHHH!

What�s around the corner? A ghost? A psycho killer? Nope, just a mirror throwing light on your ill-fated tattoo.

Ghosts, goblins, witches, zombies, and werewolves are all great Halloween costume ideas but what about as tattoos? We think not, but to each their own. All we�re saying is that one of the �Thriller� zombies might seem like awesome ink right now, but a year from now you might not feel the same.

Halloween is always full of scary sites, but when it comes to being frightened, having your tattoo removed should not be one of your fear triggers.

There are many misconceptions about laser tattoo removal based on patients� experiences with older technology, but the process has come a long way since it was first developed. The AlexTriVantage� laser that we use has a much gentler pulse than older technology.

As well, all our services are performed by certified, experienced physicians with lidocaine numbing and the use of the Cryo-6 Cold Air device, which cools the skin before, during and after treatment. The combination of anesthesia and cooling minimizes discomfort and the �pain� has been described by our patients as similar to being �flicked�

Being in the tattoo removal business, we�ve seen our fair share of flubbed tattoos even those that are just plain scary. We can confidently tell you though that the process to get rid of your nightmare tattoo won�t cause you any nightmares.

Happy Halloween!
