2015 GO! Tattoo Removal Year In Review

2015 was another outstanding year for us with much growth.  Thank you to everyone started laser tattoo removal and fading, or continued with us from previous years.  Now comfortably in our 4th year of business, we take a look back at some of the highlights from this past year.  All images came from @gotattooremoval.

More highlights that aren’t in the video:

Online Tattoo Removal Appointment Scheduling!  We started 2015 off with a pretty big change to how we do appointment scheduling, offering the ability to do it online.  This was done at the request of many, many clients, but also to help streamline our services and be more accessible.  After several months of beta-testing we are still really happy with the company we use to handle the scheduling and appointment reminders via email and text, and hope you are as well.

Extensive Face Tattoo Removal Treatment Video with a client who started with us at the end of January is now the second most viewed video on our YouTube Channel.  The client came back in for a second treatment over the summer and a progress photo was also posted, the results are stellar.  Have a look!

We attended the 2015 Philadelphia Tattoo Convention for the first time.  One of the largest tattoo conventions in the country is but an hour away from our office, so an extended backyard, and it was amazing.  We finally got to meet so many of you who follow us on social media or have called and inquired, along with seeing old friends, it’s one we’re really looking forward to attending again this year.  See our full recap here.

2015 saw our hometown tattoo convention, Skindustry, move locations to Bethlehem inside the Sands Casino Event Center, and it was nothing short of amazing.  The change in venue brought an entirely new dynamic to the convention, one that everyone seemed to love.  2016 will be our fourth year attending and we couldn’t be more excited about it.  See the 2015 Skindustry recap here.

A stone’s throw away is the Electric City Tattoo Convention, in Scranton, PA, another favorite of ours in the spring.  More good times were had and more food from What The Fork? food truck was consumed and can’t wait to do it again this year!  2015 recap of Electric City is here.

GO! Tattoo Removal grew with the addition of Brooke, a certified laser technician.  She’s been a great fit within our small business and has the same integrity, compassion and caring about tattoo removal and clients that sparked the interest for Marcus and Mike to start the business in the first place.  If you’ve met her, you know her personality is unique and meshes really well with the core values Marcus and Mike hold.

The fourth tattoo convention we attended in 2015 was the Visionary Arts Festival in beautiful Asbury Park, NJ.  Our first time attending and we were welcomed with open arms.  This is an amazing convention in a historic building on the boardwalk of one of New Jersey’s nicest beaches.  Everyone who put this show on, talked with us and attended was beyond nice and we can’t wait to get back to the beach convention again this year.  Recap of the convention is here.

Perhaps the biggest announcement of 2015 for us was the addition of a new tattoo removal laser, the Cynosure PicoSure.  This addition of the PicoSure allows us to not only achieve better fading at every tattoo removal appointment but also safely yet more aggressively treat blue and green inks, typically very stubborn to budget with other tattoo removal methods.  We still have our existing laser, as it’s been amazing for us and still fits into our workflow in the office, but the PicoSure has been a welcomed addition.  Find out more about the PicoSure in our Allentown office, here.

In addition to adding hundreds more tattoo removal progress photos and tattoo removal to tattoo cover up photos, we’ve added a bunch of new tattoo removal videos to showcase how the process works.  These videos are done to help show how quick the laser tattoo removal treatments and are just another tool to help explain how and why certain tattoos fade faster than others.

Our most viral tattoo removal video this year passed 150,000 views on YouTube and showcases a large black cover-up and the subsequent fading after three tattoo removal treatments.

Again, we’d like to thank all past and current clients, friends family and supporters for helping us continue to grow.  2016 will be another exciting year for GO! Tattoo Removal!
