Ink Cemetery – Tattoo Removal Services
How much will laser tattoo removal cost me?
The average price for laser tattoo removal in New York is around $135.00 for one square inch of ink, per treatment. At our clinic, we have a minimum price of $75 a treatment and we always offer free consultations to all new clients. We also have special discounts for clients that have large tattoos that would normally be too expensive for most people to remove. Tattoo removal pricing is evaluated by the size, age, and color of the tattoo. During the consultation process we will do our best to find a price that will benefit both parties.
Do you offer any discounts?
Yes, we periodically offer discounts. Check for specials on our Facebook, Instagram, and on our website.
How painful is it?
Tattoo removal will hurt more than getting the ink put on, but the actual treatment will take a tenth of the time per treatment. If it took you an hour to get the tattoo put on, the removal procedure should take about 10 minutes to complete. Once the treatment is finished the pain should subside in about 2 minutes.
How many treatments will it take?
Most tattoos can take between 5-15 treatments. The number of treatments will depend on the age of your tattoo, the types of ink that were used, and how your body responds to the treatments. After the tattoo is evaluated during the consultation process your laser technician will be able to give you a more accurate account of how many treatments you will need.
What if it doesn’t work?
Since every tattoo and client is different it is impossible to guarantee that any tattoo can be removed completely. Our clinic and laser specialist will do everything in our power to reduce as much ink as possible in the safest way possible. If you are ever unhappy with your results please let us know. We are always willing to help you out with pricing for difficult tattoos.
Variables that may extend the amount of treatments needed for complete tattoo removal:
- Multiple or overlapping colors in one tattoo
- If the tattoo has been covered up by another tattoo
- If the tattoo is located on a part of the body that may have a lower circulation of blood flow (i.e. hands, feet, ankles, fingers, toes, & ears)
- If the artist caused scarring (heavy-handed tattooing) while administering the tattoo
- Tobacco smoking will reduce circulation needed for the removal process
- Dehydration will reduce the flow of lymphatic fluid
- Being sun-tanned means the technician will have to use less aggressive settings
- Age and overall health are both important factors in the healing process and how efficiently the body digests the ink
A Chat with Ink Cemetery
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Here at Ink Cemetery we understand the needs of our clients. That’s why we have created a space that is calm and safe. A place where the clients can start to heal emotionally. Having a bad tattoo or the name of an ex husband or wife can really have an effect on a person emotionally. We can help.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We wanted to help people that were feeling hopeless about a mistake they made. Whether it was an ex husband or wife’s name or a gang member that wants to start a new life. Our goal is to help people and give them a feeling of hope and a new start.
What do you love most about your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is when a client says “Thank you so much, you have no idea how much I want to get rid of this ugly thing!” To me, helping someone is the best part of this job. To see smiles on our clients’ faces when they leave is priceless.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I would have to say the best feedback would be from one of my first clients. She said she was embarrassed to wear a bathing suit because of her “gross butterfly” on her back. After a few sessions with the laser she was so happy she began to cry. That’s what this job is all about. Helping others heal.
