Tattoo Removal Cost
Tattoo laser treatment is one of the most costly options available. The average prices range in the thousands of dollars. Some tattoo laser treatment offices charge up to $10 per light pulse. Since multiple pulses occur each minute, the tattoo removal cost in the end can add up quickly. Some clinics offering tattoo laser treatment usually start at $24-$49 per square inch, per treatment and can range as high as $100 – $150 per square inch. Sessions average $150 – $250 dollars per session.

Tattoo Removal Cost – Prices are Affected By:
The price for your tattoo removal will vary considerably for each individual depending on many influencing factors.
- The ink used for the original tattoo. (For example, professionals use a stronger form of ink, than some of the inks used in homemade tattoos.)
- Is it a homemade versus professionally done tattoo.
- The diameter or the size of the tattoo being removed.
- The complexity of colors.
- The age of the tattoo.
Treatments may need to be spread out over a period of time ranging from a few months to a year, depending on the size and complexity of colors as well as the age of the tattoo. This arrangement may make it easier for you to afford the tattoo removal cost.
Free tattoo laser treatment is done in California in Los Angeles and Bakersfield by a non-profit religious organization called Agape Light Tattoo Removal Organization. They specialize in removing small tattoos that are gang and prison related. This is one example of how communities are helping people to turn their life around with offering laser tattoo removal to people that would not be able to afford it.
The tattoo removal cost is approximately 10 times the cost of the original tattoo.
