Laser technician Raleigh Taufer, at top, targets the black ink on Brian Finley's tattooed back at Q Laser Center. It usually takes six to eight treatments to remove a tattoo, depending on the type of ink that was used, the concentration of the ink and the individual's ability to break it down. In a previous session, Finley had the Chinese lettering on his tattoo removed. Above, he checks the slowly disappearing tattoo on his arm, with the black outline gone.
