Tattoo Removal Technician

A tattoo removal technician is someone trained and certified in the processes and protocols of removing unwanted tattoos by cosmetic lasers. When a cosmetic laser is used to remove tattoos, the light and energy fired at the ink is broken down into microscopic, fractionalized pieces. The lymphatic system of the body then safely flushes it out, fading tattoos until they disappear.

It depends on the size and color of the tattoo, but laser tattoo removal can take anywhere from 8-12 sessions to fully fade tattoos. These tattoo removal sessions can run anywhere from $50 – $100+ (again, this depends on the tattoo’s size). As a tattoo removal technician, you have the potential to bring in hundreds or thousands off each client you treat over a period of sessions.

It typically takes a tattoo removal technician anywhere between 5-10 minutes to treat a client. These are very fast treatments that can be done in a short amount of time. However, it is important that tattoo removal technicians complete a thorough consultation with each client to ensure a safe treatment.

It takes anywhere from 1-2 weeks to receive laser tattoo removal certification. Once completed, you will be able to safely treat your own clientele and be knowledgeable in performing on laser equipment.
