When you talk anyone in the business about tattoo removal you most likely will hear a term called the “Kirby-Desi” scale. The “Kirby-Desi” scale is used to figure out how many sessions you will need to get your tattoo removed. Your local tattoo Fort Collins specialist will use this scale when you come in for your first session. He will be able to tell you exactly how long he thinks it will take to remove your ink.


While pretty accurate, the scale isn’t the only determining factor when it comes to figuring out how long it will take to remove your tattoo. Other things to consider when figuring the number of sessions you will need include if you’re a tobacco user, age of ink, your overall health picture and the location of the tattoo on your body. Our team here at Tat 2 Undo will look at each category to give you a good idea of how long it will take.
