It has finally happened for you! The person of your dreams popped the question and you said, “Yes!”

Now the planning begins—researching venues for the reception, picking out invitations, cake tasting, dress shopping and more.

But what about that tattoo on your back? You know, the one of your ex’s name written in black ink across your shoulder blades? Depending on the cut of your dress, it might be a stain on your big day.

Laser tattoo removal for brides is a very common procedure. Many brides invest in these sessions before their big day, but not everyone does their research.

Enough time needs to be set aside to get your unwanted tattoo completely removed. As wedding season approaches, we at EradiTatt have created a guide with some tips on laser tattoo removal to help you look and feel your best on your wedding day.

Beyond The Research

If you’ve done your research, you’ve probably discovered that laser tattoo removal is not an overnight fix. Whether it’s your ‘something old,’ or your ‘something blue,’ the procedure takes multiple sessions depending on the size, age, location, and color of the tattoo. At EradiTatt, we discuss your concerns, answer your questions and plan your tattoo removal sessions leading up to your wedding day. We know this time can be overwhelming, so we also offer free consultations over the phone.

Time is of the Essence

Laser tattoo removal is a procedure you’ll want to RSVP to six to 12 months before your big day.  For complete removal, you’ll want to account for your procedures and healing time. As the PiQ04 laser  breaks down particles of tattoo pigment for the body to process, the ink will fade more and more over time. For this reason, sessions at EradiTatt are usually scheduled six to eight weeks apart. If you have a single color, or black tattoo, you may see faster results in fewer sessions, than those with a multi-colored tattoo, but on your big day, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Some is Better Than None

If you plan to have a shorter engagement and your date is set, don’t fret. A little laser tattoo removal is better than none! Come in for a free consultation and we’ll book your first few sessions right away. While your tattoo may not be completely removed on your wedding day, ink that has already begun to fade and break down is much easier to conceal with makeup than full ink.
