Common Questions About Tattoo Removal on Dark Skin Types

Can you do tattoo removal on dark skin?

Yes! Tattoos on dark skin types can be completely removed. However, the tattoo ink will play a factor in the removal outcome. Not all ink colors can be removed from dark skin types, and the Fitzpatrick scale helps us determine which ink colors are safe to remove from different skin types. See our skin tone chart to determine if your tattoo can be removed.
