Celtic Cross

This realistic ripped skin around a Celtic cross was done by Justin.  This is one of my favourites.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Your tattoo sits in the dermis (second layer of your skin) in particles  that are too big for your Macrophages (part of your bodies immune system) to remove; your collagen during the healing process has then encapsulating your tattoo which is what made them permanent.  The laser  light, in nanoseconds, is absorbed by the tattoo ink which then creates a photo acoustic shock wave which in turn then releases heat from the tattoo which causes the ink to shatter into particles small enough for your Macrophages to remove from your body through the lymphatic system.

These photos show before the first session and immediately after, already you can see some changes.  Smaller changes should continue over the coming weeks before coming in for a further treatment in approximately 6 – 8 weeks.  The areas that our laser which is a ND YAG Q Switched will struggle to completely remove will most likely be the green leave and paler blue in one of the butterflies.

Double Helix Piercing

Love a double helix, extra care is needed in caring for this one especially cleaning between the two pieces of jewellery.  We opted for titanium barbells, which are slightly longer than Joe will need long term but in the early days will allow for any swell (inflammatory reaction) and for him to clean thoroughly around the entrance and exit.
