27+ years ago the client got a set of boxing gloves tattooed on their forearm and shortly after realized it wasn’t for them and had it covered with this large panther tattoo. Not fully ever really loving the panther, and 25+ years later, we’re helping out. This will eventually be covered with a full sleeve.

The white “frosting” that appears immediately after the the laser is water vapor, a byproduct of the laser tattoo removal treatment. Within 10 minutes, this fades and is not a burn or blister.

In the left hand is a hose that’s connected to a cryo-chiller, a device that blows extremely cold air onto the skin before and during a treatment to help reduce any short-term swelling, a common side effect. It is not a vacuum.

What you see here was filmed in real time, showing just how fast tattoo removal treatments are.
