What is tattoo removal frosting? 

Frosting is a natural reaction that occurs when the laser hits the tattoo ink. It’s a short-term reaction that goes away after a few minutes. The tattoo frosts due to the laser-blasting the ink particles into tiny pieces for your body to flush. Then the tattoo returns to normal to start the removal process.

In this article, we’ll show you our top 17 frosting tattoo removal videos and answer some of your commonly asked questions about tattoo removal. See some satisfying videos and learn more below.

Does laser tattoo removal cause scarring?

No, it does not. We know that the white frost looks intimidating, but it goes away after a few minutes. Luckily laser tattoo removal does not cause scarring, and we have aftercare protocols to ensure your tattoo is healing properly.

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?

Can you remove color tattoos?

Yes! As you can see in the video above, we can remove color tattoos. Our laser technology has the capability to remove color tattoos from across the visible light spectrum.

Can you remove cosmetic tattoos?

We can remove cosmetic ink such as eyebrow or scalp micro-blading. Other cosmetic tattoos such as permanent lip liner or eyeliner can not be treated. Learn more about eyebrow tattoo removal here.

Does ink density play a factor?

Yes, ink density will play a factor in how many sessions you can expect to receive for complete removal. Typically the more dense a tattoo is, the more sessions it will take to remove and the less dense a tattoo is, the fewer amount of sessions will be needed for complete removal. For example, a tattoo that is primarily shading will likely have fewer removal sessions than a dense tribal sun tattoo.

What’s the easiest spot to remove?

Typically tattoos closer to the heart are considered to be the best placement to see quicker removal results. Closer to the heart means that there is more circulation to flush out the tattoo vs a tattoo on the foot that is further from the heart.

Can I replace the old tattoo with a new one?

Yes! You can fade or completely remove your tattoo and replace it with new ink. Check out our cover up page to learn more and see our top 18 tattoo cover ups- post tattoo removal.

Does tattoo removal hurt?

It’s comparable to getting a tattoo and placement matters when it comes to pain. On average, most clients say that it feels like rubber bands snapping or it’s annoying like the popping of bacon grease. Check out our tattoo pain chart to learn more.

Can you remove tattoos from anywhere?

Yes! We can remove tattoos from virtually any part of the body! With the exception of tattoos within the orbital bone.

How long does tattoo removal take?

On average it takes around 10-12 sessions to see complete removal results. The laser only breaks the ink particles apart into tiny pieces for your immune system to naturally flush. It takes time and continued sessions to see complete removal results.

Does it smell like it’s burning?

No! Tattoo removal does not create an odor. It’s a noninvasive procedure that does not burn the skin and therefore does not create a smell. Hocus Porkus will not smell like bacon after all.

Does the laser burn the tattoo off?

No! Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive treatment that does not burn or cause scarring to the surrounding tissue. Minor after-effects such as bruising, swelling, or blistering could occur to the treated tattoo. Although, we have aftercare protocols to help reduce any after-effects.

Can you remove tattoos from dark skin?

Yes! We can remove tattoos from all skin types. Certain colors may be difficult to remove depending on your skin type. We use the Fitzpatrick scale to determine what tattoo color can be removed from different skin types. See our skin tone chart here to determine if your tattoo can be removed.

Can I remove my tattoo if I’m pregnant?

Unfortunately, we can not treat your tattoo if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Once you have completed those stages, we can treat your tattoo.

Will my skin return to normal?

Yes! Your skin will return to its original texture without scarification, bumps, stretching, etc. It will retain elasticity, color, and texture once the tattoo is completely removed.

Will that tattoo go away in one session?

Likely not, tattoo removal is a process that typically takes around 10-12 sessions to see complete removal results. Frosting often looks like the tattoo is being magically erased at the moment, but it’s actually a sign that the process is starting. After a few minutes, the frosting will dissipate and the tattoo over time will frost less and fade more. 

Can I go out in the sun?

 It’s best for your tattoo’s removal progress to avoid direct sunlight to the treated area. Hypopigmentation could occur from sunlight exposure. If you’re getting a tattoo removed in the summertime, it’s best to keep the tattoo covered. Learn more about hypopigmentation here.
