We do not suggest you do laser hair removal over tattoo.
The reason of laser hair removal is its targets in the pigmentation and breakdown the pigmentation melanin. If the laser is used over an tattooed area, the pigment in the ink will be targeted, resulting in tattoo damaged, and more worstly, compare with the normal skin, the tattooed area will absorb much more laser energy that will cause burning, pain, and severe skin damage.
If you have a small tattoo we recommend covering it with a bandaid. Alternatively, if your tattoo is larger in size then it’s safe enough to laser around the tattoo ensuring there’s enough space between each laser flash of light and the tattoo.
Your tattoo ink is injected into the dermis, the layer below the epidermis. Therefore, you can wax over a tattoo without having any worries about harming it. However, you must wait till your tattoo is fully healed.
After getting a tattoo, the outer layer of skin (the part you can see) will typically heal within 2 to 3 weeks. While it may look and feel healed, and you may be tempted to slow down on the aftercare, it can take as long as 6 months for the skin below a tattoo to truly heal.
