  • Tattoo removal can put the past behind you

    Author: Lauren Abdel-Razzaq

    Detroit – For longer than half his lifetime, whenever Jose Vargas looked in the mirror, he saw three tiny dots near the corner of his left eye – tattoos he had done when he was 17 and living much differently than he is now.

    "It was a symbol of my crazy life," said Vargas, a former gang member who spent six years in prison. Now 35, out on parole for three months, holding down a steady job and paying for his own apartment, the Detroiter is ready to put his past behind him.

    That's why, on Thursday, he sat stoically through the stinging as a doctor from Bostford Hospital used a laser to zap away the tattoo on his face. It was his second treatment, and he'll have to come back for more before the ink will fade completely, but it's already given him a new outlook on life.

  • Tattoo Removal Cost

    Tattoo removal is priced by the number of square inches of ink.  The tattoo is measured during the initial consultation to determine the exact size of the tattoo and the number of treatments required for removal.

    A price will be set for each treatment based on the following




    Multi Colored Tattoos

    Tattoos with more than 2 colors might be subject to an additional $15 per square inch charge.


    Special pricing is available when multiple treatments are bought as a package.  Please ask for package prices at your initial consultation.
