Indian ink tattoos are easy to remove

So why are Indian Ink tattoos so easy to remove at UberSkin ?

What are Indian Ink tattoos? PicoSure removes Indian ink tattoos in 1-3 sessions

Indian Ink tattoos are done with a pot of ink, and needle and thread. I should probably say “were done”, because many of today’s kids probably wouldn’t recognise a pot of “quink”.

This Indian ink procedure usually happens over a kitchen table or in someone’s garage or quickly in science class, because the science teacher is looking away🙂. So as you can see it’s an amateur tattoo, which is placed very superficially in the skin. 

Due to the pure nature of these tattoos and where it’s done, the stories associated with it, are mostly very funny. There’s a quirky and secretive side to it, so not to be caught out.

Who has Indian ink tattoos?

I have to say I haven’t seen any patients in their twenties or even early 30’s who has requested a removal of an Indain ink tattoo. So I would say our patients, literally are in their late thirties right into their 70’s. 

Many of our older patients never knew they could have their Indian ink tattoo removed, yet it is a simple and virtually painless procedure to have it removed. One to three sessions, with a PicoSure Laser, usually does the trick.

How much pain does it cause to remove an Indian Ink tattoo?

Because the Indian Ink tattoo is very superficial in the skin, we can use a setting that is comfortable and because we cool the skin down, that’s what our patients feel – the cold. So you won’t have to be concerned that we’ll put grandma or grandpa through the wringer to get their Indian Ink tattoos off.

Our PicoSure laser is the most comfortable laser to have your tattoos removed. 

What’s the response to having the Indian Ink tattoo removed?

Our patients are usually pretty surprised to find that most of the ink is gone after their first treatment session and wondered why they took so long to remove it. 

To be honest, unless your grandma or grandpa is internet savvy, they probably won’t know that we can help them.  We do find that sometimes, it’s the children or granchildren that contact us on behalf of a parent or grandparent to help them achieve that goal.

When can we remove their Indian Ink tattoos?

Any time. So, it’s never too late to have an old Indian ink tattoo removed.  Contact us to see what we can do for you. 


Registered Laser Tattoo Removal Service

Registered laser tattoo removal service in Northern Ireland

Are you having your tattoo removed by a registered laser tattoo removal service? How do you know and why is it important?

Every laser tattoo removal service in Northern Ireland, has to be registered with RQIA. RQIA is the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority. They inspect, register and regulate all clinics, studios and hospitals that provide a laser tattoo removal service.

Why is it important to know if you are treated within a registered laser tattoo removal service?

  • The person treating you is trained to the appropriate level
  • The equipment is safe and working properly
  • The treatment protocols are set up by a medical doctor
  • The premises is inspected and deemed as a safe environment for you to be in

How do you know whether you are treated by a registered laser tattoo removal service?

Look for this sign –

Registered laser tattoo removal service





Who can display this sign? Only a premises that passed a rigorous inspection for quality and safety and has a registration number with RQIA is allowed to display this sign of quality assurance.

Now, some business do not display this sign, but they will clearly state that they are registered with RQIA. Why? Because any tattoo removal service who is willing to be inspected, do so, because they have gone to the trouble of being appropriately trained and invested in equipment that is safe to use.

There are several registered laser tattoo removal services in Northern Ireland. Some are based in clinics, others in hospitals, while some tattoo removal services are very closely associated with tattoo studios and will clearly show that they are registered. Irrespective of where the tattoo removal service is located, if they are registered, then they have done so, because they care about the service they provide to you.

The most important thing to remember is that a tattoo removal laser in the wrong hands, can cause immeasurable and often irreversible damage to your skin. Why run the risk?

For your own safety and peace of mind, make sure you only seek out a registered laser tattoo removal service here in Northern Ireland.

The Picosure laser is the newest and most effective in removing tattoos

So you have a tattoo, which you now regret. What now? You are not so sure what to do or where to go. You know about laser tattoo removal, but the thought scares you. Or you had laser tattoo removal and you don’t think it’s working so well.

How do you know who to trust or which laser is the real deal? All lasers are NOT created equal. You might have heard of the Picosure laser, but what is it? All you know is, you are looking for a safe and fast way to remove your tattoo. Look no further than UberSkin. We offer you the Picosure laser.

Laser tattoo removal is by far the most effective way of getting rid of your tattoo, compared to creams, lotions and potions.Why? Because it breaks up your tattoo ink into bite size pieces, so your body can remove it through your lymphatic system.

But what is bite size? It makes sense that the smaller the particle size of your ink, the easier your body will be able to get rid of it.

Thats where the Picosure laser comes in. Older nano second lasers break up your ink into chunks. The Picosure laser blasts your tattoo ink into fine particles like grains of sand.  It’s so much easier for your body’s lymphatic system to remove a small particle of ink compared to pushing a huge chunk of ink through your system.

The Picosure laser workstation can remove your tattoos safely and efficiently without injuring the surrounding tissue.

If you are wondering about this type of treatment or would like to have a chat, contact us and we will be happy to help.
