Houston's Leading Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic.

Since 2007, New Look has performed more laser tattoo removal treatments than any other Houston clinic with their extensive experience and the world's most advanced laser technology. Laser tattoo removal works by focusing laser energy to break up the pigment and color in your tattoo. Tattoo removal lasers do not penetrate the deeper layers of skin, making scarring very rare and healing very fast. An average tattoo takes 3 to 10 treatments to remove completely. The number of treatments depends on the age, color, quality of ink, and technique used to create the tattoo.

Scientific Perspective on Tattoos
Tattoo Ink is Something of a Mystery.

Manufacturers of tattoo ink are not required to reveal their contents. The ink is not regulated by the FDA. Many professional tattoo artists mix their own ink from dry pigments,but contents might not be revealed to a client for competitive reasons. Tattoo inks aren't really inks. They are pigments suspended in a carrier solution. Most inks are made of metal salts. Some are plastics, some might be vegetable dyes. If a tattoo shop doesn't adhere to safety precautions, a range of infections (especially hepatitis) might be contained in tattoo ink if the tattoo artists dips the needle in an infected person, back in the ink container, then into a new client's skin.

Toxicity/Reaction with Tattoo Ink
Some chemical reactions exist between skin and tattoo ink. You can look at the Material Safety Data Sheet for the pigment or carrier to see what some of the interactions might be. E.g. Allergic reactions, scarring, and phototoxic reactions.
Plastic-based pigments can be intensely colored and very difficult to remove. Some inks glow-in-the-dark in response to black (ultraviolet) light, some of these are safe, but some are radioactive or toxic.
