There are two very important aspects to laser tattoo removal: the treatment and the aftercare. Many people are surprised to learn that it is the body, mainly the immune system, which takes care of the bulk of the laser tattoo removal process. This is great news to most because there are things that can speed up the laser tattoo removal process. One thing that may hinder the ink clearance is getting a new tattoo elsewhere on the body while you are in between treatments.
The immune system is triggered when anything is perceived as a threat or a foreign body. This includes bacteria, viruses and yes, new tattoos. Shortly after you leave the tattoo shop with your new fresh tattoo, your immune system takes over and tries to rid the body of the foreign ink. The ink particles are too big to get cleared away, but the immune system will put up an effort to fight and remove them.
If you are currently receiving laser tattoo removal, your immune system is already hard at work clearing the ink particles that are broken down by the laser. Basically it is working overtime. We want to avoid anything that puts additional strain on the immune system so it can focus all it’s efforts on the tattoo it is trying to remove.
Bottom line – it is not recommended to get a new tattoo during the laser tattoo removal process.
