“We are not a med-spa or salon. We specialize in one thing and one thing only, laser tattoo removal”
Dustin Nelson – Owner Operator – Certified Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist & Laser Safety Officer
Dustin Nelson is Owner and Operator of Fallen Ink Tattoo Removal and serves as lead Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist. With thousands of successful laser tattoo removal treatments under his belt, Dustin is respected as one of Minnesota’s best laser tattoo removal professionals and is dedicated to providing a great experience with exceptional results at an affordable cost.
Dustin is a tattoo enthusiast who enjoys and appreciates professional body art. His first tattoo came at the early age of 18, while his first laser tattoo removal experience followed shortly after at the age of 20. Dustin’s first tattoo was a classic example of a spur-of-the-moment decision that often results in “tattoo regret”. Dustin decided to have a number of laser sessions performed on his first tattoo to help fade the colors to the point where his new tattoo artist could successfully complete a cover-up.
Having graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2006, Dustin later pursued a degree from the world renowned A Laser Academy in Denver, Colorado receiving professional certifications as both a Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist (L.T.R.S.) and Laser Safety Officer (L.S.O). Dustin also spent a significant amount of time studying under and working hand-in-hand with whom many consider to be a leader and pioneer in laser tattoo removal, Mr. Victor Beyer at Rethink The Ink.
Hannah Mayer – L.T.R.S. and L.S.O – Certified Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist
As an avid tattoo collector, Hannah has always had a love of tattoos. After graduating from the Aveda Institute Minneapolis with a license in Esthiology in May of 2015, Hannah wanted to further advance her interest in skin and her passion for tattoos. However, without a single artistic bone in her body, Hannah knew tattooing was out of the question! So, she decided to pursue the opposite end of the spectrum and contacted Fallen Ink Tattoo Removal to see if they were hiring.
Hannah was hired by Fallen Ink Tattoo Removal in January 2016 and received her professional certifications as a Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist (L.T.R.S.) and Laser Safety Officer (L.S.O.) from A Laser Academy in March of 2016. Hannah has always striven for a career that involves helping people in any regard. Though tattoo removal may not seem like the most traditional choice, the industry is an incredibly rewarding and an opportune way to help people from all walks of life in moving forward from something they regret.
