Does laser tattoo removal hurt?
A lot of people know that they want to get their tattoo removed.
But, they’re scared.
They’re scared of the pain. They don’t know how painful laser tattoo removal is and they don’t know what it feels like.
So, in this article, we will share exactly what tattoo removal feels like and the myths around tattoo removal pain.
Tattoo removal pain scale
The big question, is tattoo removal painful? Does it hurt? If so, how much?
This question is nearly impossible to answer accurately for your specific situation since everyone has different pain tolerances.
From our experiences, women oftentimes have higher pain tolerances than men do.
Some women claim that the process isn’t painful at all. They say that they don’t feel anything!
On the other hand, there are folks that argue that laser tattoo removal is much more painful than actually getting the tattoo in the first place.
So, the answer? It depends on your pain tolerance, what you can handle, and how you deal with pain.
With that being said, though, what does tattoo removal actually feel like?

We do EVERYTHING we can to limit the amount of pain you feel
We’ve taken every precaution to make laser tattoo removal as painless as possible for you.
We use a “cooling system” that blows sub-freezing cold air against your skin. This counteracts the sensations of heat that you would feel from the laser.
There are also laser tattoo removal clinics that use numbing creams (and some even do numbing injections).
Even though it may be painful, the process is very, very quick
Even though laser tattoo removal may feel like a hot rubber band being flicked against your skin, the process itself is extremely fast!
For most tattoos, each laser tattoo removal session takes less than 60 seconds…
And with the average number of sessions being between 6 and 8 sessions, you’ll only have to endure 6-8 minutes worth of pain!
