Fading an unwanted tattoo to facilitate a new cover-up design has become increasingly popular. This is because fading an existing tattoo increases the choice of cover-up options significantly. For example, light colors and fine lines will not effectively cover up an existing dark outline and this severely limits one’s artwork choices. However, most dark outlines and deeply colored tattoos can be faded in a couple of treatments with PicoSure™. Once the majority of the undesirable ink has been removed, the artist can then apply a new tattoo using lighter strokes and delicate colors which are associated with today’s modern styles. I personally have faded a significant number of tattoos successfully which allowed for the placement of beautiful cover-up artwork – see example below. Most experienced PicoSure™ providers can give a quote over the phone from a simple description of size and location.
