Frequently Asked Questions

And we mean frequently!

So many people have a million questions about Tattoo Removal, only because it's not a widely known topic (yet!) Check out some of the questions we get asked below, if there's something not on here that you would like to ask, just send us a message and will answer whatever questions you have.  


If I pay for my sessions in bulk up upfront can I save money?

This will always be a yes! Depending on your tattoo size our upfront packages make life a lot easier for you. If you pay for 5 sessions you don’t have to pay a cent for your 6th one (it’s free!) or if you pay for 3 sessions up front your 4th session is half price!

What payment options do you have?

At Eliminate Tattoo Removal, we know what it's like to be a bit strapped for cash and we've made it easier for you to have your cake and eat it too so, you don't have to miss out on your treatments we have AfterPay available along with our normal eftpos and cash facilities.

What is AfterPay?

Afterpay is this awesome service where you can pay for your treatments off in 4 easy fortnightly payments and get your treatment upfront. Very similar to a take home lay-by. All you need to do is have the afterpay app ready on your phone when you come in, we'll input your barcode and Wah-lah! For more info head to


Can you tell me exactly how many sessions my tattoo will need?

If only we could. Being that every skin type and tattoo are different it is hard to give an exact time frame on how many treatments you will need. We will be able to give you an estimate on the amount of sessions that will be required but your tattoo could be one of those awesome ones that need less treatments or you could need more. Average number of sessions can be between 7 - 15 sessions.

Can you treat coloured tattoos?

Absolutely, although some colours in a tattoo can be a little stubborn to budge but our machines are experts at working on removing all colours. We won’t stop your treatments until you’re happy with the result.

Does tattoo removal hurt?

We’re not going to lie, yes it can be uncomfortable. The feeling is similar to getting a tattoo done but then again everyone has a different pain threshold. The best thing about the removal process (other than the removal itself) is that each session is over so quickly. We use cooling treatments to make it more comfortable for you. However, if you decide to go old fashioned at home and use a scalpel, then yes that will definitely hurt.

Can I use numbing cream?

Of course you can. You can get a numbing cream over the counter at a chemist or you can ask your doctor for a stronger topical agent. Numbing creams can be awesome but like everything some of them work to an extent and some only just soothe the area and don’t give you the complete relief you're looking for. Be mindful though that some numbing creams are water based, and if you are using one that is water based it can prolong the sessions as the water in the them extracts some of energy from the laser. This means your tattoo is not getting the full amount of energy it needs to break down the tattoo properly. If you would like to use numbing cream, just apply it 30mins before your treatment and you're good to go.

I have multiple tattoos I’d like to have removed in one session, is that possible?

You can have as many tattoos removed as you’d like in one sitting. This does just depend on your pain threshold and how much removal your body can take. We can tailor an affordable package for you so you save a whole bunch of money, Just fill out the quote request form below or give us a call to arrange a consultation.

Can I change tattoo removalists at anytime during my treatments?

By all means you can change removalists, the medical grade machines e.g Q-Switch and Pico which are used throughout our industry can be interchanged throughout your treatments.
