Tattoo News

















In twenty plus years of medical practice I have served as a medical expert for multiple insurance companies and Law firms.


Thus I have a very intimate understanding of medical law and patient/consumer safety.


The idea of offering “medical” services in a “spa” setting developed in the middle 1990’s and the “Medi-Spa” was created.


While it is wonderful to have  treatments in a relaxed atmosphere the line of safety is often crossed leaving you prone to serious injuries from personnel not qualified to treat you.


Terms like “medically supervised” or “Medical Director” give the impression that you are in a medical environment being cared for my medically trained professionals . When  in reality you may be receiving treatment from a person who knew nothing about medicine/aesthetics three weeks ago and became “certified” in a two weekend course.


Specifically regarding Laser Tattoo Removal


The removal of tattoos , implant able devices ( ink) , pigments are medical therapies in NYS and require medical education.

The persons legally capable of using lasers to remove tattoos are:


  1. Medical Doctors ( M.D. Or D.O.)
  2. Advanced Nurse Practitioners ( A.N.P. , N.P.) with physician collaboration
  3. Physician Assistant (P.A.) under direct physician supervision


Anyone else not listed above is NOT legally capable of using a laser to remove a tattoo


So, how do you protect yourself?


There are terms you must know to better understand who is treating you and what your potential risks are:



Do your homework. Speak to someone who you know had the treatment at a particular establishment. What is the turn over of the staff ,how long have they been performing the treatments.


This page is not meant to point the finger and any establishment  but to  educate patients .


If you made a mistake in choosing your artist or tattoo the first time

It is even more important not to make a mistake in choosing the person who removes it.
