Laser Tattoo Removal

Our laser tattoo removal area

At Viking Tattoo Studio, our highly trained team also offer a tattoo removal service, using state-of-the-art laser technology. If you have an unwanted tattoo that you are keen to remove, our laser treatment might be the perfect option for you!

We can remove or lighten unwanted tattoos through multiple laser treatments. Though we also specialise in high quality cover-up tattoos, there are times when a tattoo might be so big and dark that a decent cover up with another tattoo is not really an option. In these cases, laser treatment can be utilised effectively to lighten the darkness of the old tattoo, so that it is a lot easier to cover, giving you more choice with designs and a better outcome for your new tattoo.
