Laser Hair Removal and Tattoo

 
Hi and thank you for your question! When doing laser hair treatments, we generally stay away from tattooed areas as there is higher risk of burns and damage to tattoo or skin. I highly recommend that you first complete the laser hair treatments and then get the tattoo. I hope it helps and good luck!
