Tattoo Removal Costs

You’ve decided you’re ready to get rid of that old tattoo. The one you’re so embarrassed about and constantly work to make sure is covered by clothing so no one knows you have it. Your first question is probably, “How much is this gonna cost me?”

Every day, our office receives multiple calls from people with this very question and unfortunately, it’s a bit of a tough one to answer! You see, the cost of laser tattoo removal is a lot like the cost of getting a tattoo—it all depends! Our treatments usually range from $195 – $450 depending on the size of the tattoo.

Just like a more experienced tattoo artist is likely to charge more for his or her work, a more experienced laser tattoo removal practitioner is as well. The cost of having the most state-of-the-art equipment available in addition to the time it takes for the treatment figures in too. Bottom line: the cost varies.

If you’ve already read about what laser tattoo removal is, then you understand it’s a process. Granted, your body plays a role, but the skill and knowledge of your practitioner and the equipment that they use on your tattoo can speed it along efficiently, or cause it to drag out unnecessarily. For example, if you are being treated by an inexperienced practitioner with an underpowered laser for your skin type, then you may only see half the clearance of your tattoo compared to if you were being treated with the right laser with the optimum settings and technique in the same amount of time. This is why doing your homework is so vital. Sure, you may pay more for each treatment session, but why not get the results you’re looking for in the shortest amount of treatments? That will save you money in the long run and you’ll be happy that you got what you paid for!

When you have laser tattoo removal that is performed with the correct equipment operated by an experienced practitioner who uses the most aggressive (yet safe) energy settings for your tattoo and skin type, you are going to maximize your results. As a result, you will get maximum clearance for the minimum number of treatments. You don’t just want “laser tattoo removal”—you want laser tattoo removal that gives you the biggest bang for your buck. This is the whole idea!

In Los Angeles, there’s body art everywhere! Almost just as diverse as the number of different pricing schemes for laser tattoo removal. Some places will charge by the size of the tattoo, usually around $50 per square inch (Dr. Tattoff went out of business in 2017). This may be a great plan for someone with a very small tattoo, but if you’re wanting to get rid of a sleeve or a back tattoo, this type of pricing can get out of hand real quick! Our office has found that most places will charge for the time that’s necessary to provide a treatment session. This is usually anywhere between $200 to $300 for a 15-minute session.
