How Long Have Tattoos Been Around?
Learn more about the history of tattoos.
Tattoos have been around for thousands of years. The oldest evidence of human tattoos is believed to be from the 3rd century BC! It is estimated that 30% of adults between the ages of 18 and 30 have at least one tattoo. The ink is placed below the skin into the layer called the dermis.
What Kind of Tattoos Are There?
Discover the types of tattoos.
Tattoos can be simply decorative or they can have a special meaning, commemorating a lost relative or a special occasion. Depending on whether the tattoo was done professionally or at home, the designs can age poorly. Some fade and lose their color. Others suffer from the patient having gained or lost weight. Some tattoos in women also change during pregnancy.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Modern lasers literally explode the ink particles in the tattoo, breaking up the ink and allowing the body to absorb it.
How many treatments does it take to remove a tattoo?
In general, it takes 5 to 7 treatments to effectively remove a tattoo. Our machine, PicoWay laser, is among the fastest in the market, so we are excited to provide this service to you.
Are some tattoos harder to remove?
Black and dark blue tattoos are easier to remove, while light greens, yellow, and turquoise colors are harder to remove. An old tattoo has lost some of its ink, so it will be easier to remove than a new tattoo.
