How long does it take to get a tattoo removed?
Getting one of your tattoos removed can be quick and painless or it can involve multiple sessions depending on the size of the tattoo to be removed and on where you go to to get it removed.
Only the best tattoo removal shops in Auckland have been included in this review which will ensure that if you choose one from the list above you can be sure that you will be getting a painless and hassle free tattoo removal process.
All of the tattoo removal shops which we have reviewed today have friendly staff and are all well known and trusted within the Auckland community.
Your technician will talk you through the process during your initial consult and from here you will find out how many sessions it may or may not take and what the cost might be.
Well all make mistakes in life but those mistakes can always be rectified.
How much does it cost to get a tattoo removed?
Prices vary depending on which shop you go to and on what type of tattoo is being removed, as a general idea though the average prices across the board when it comes to tattoo removal are around $80-$130 per session.
Sessions are usually spaced out between 8-12 weeks to minimise pain and to give the skin time to heal up. Most tattoo removal places will be transparent and tell you the cost beforehand, but please read this article on removal costs that can blow out of control.
Does it hurt getting a tattoo removed?
Tattoo removals hurt no more than when you get a tattoo applied. Despite some of the stories you hear from people saying that getting a tattoo removed is very painful this is not entirely true.
Tattoo removal can be as painless as you make it and in my experience it was no more painful than getting a tattoo applied.
As I said before in another article about getting a tattoo done, go in relaxed and chuck your headphones on and before you know it your session will be up and that tattoo you don't want anymore will be out of your life.
Now that you know where the best tattoo removal places in Auckland are go and get that regretful piece removed from your life!
