How can I get a black ink tattoo removed?

Will it be painful to remove the tattoo? Take several treatments? Does this require surgery or can this be done with a laser?

Black tattoo ink is very amenable to removal with laser treatment. It can take 9 or more treatments to achieve an optimal result depending on how long the tattoo has been present, the location of the tattoo, and how completely you want to get rid of it. Any number of board-certified plastic surgeons have capable devices in their office. Be sure to choose a competent provider who will see you through the process and be available if you should have any issues during treatment. Best wishes on a great result.
