There’s a new laser tattoo removal clinic located in the beautiful Cathedral Hill neighborhood of St. Paul, MN.
Fallen Ink Laser Tattoo Removal is proud to be able to offer residents living in and around Minneapolis – St. Paul, MN the safest, most effective and most affordable solution for removing unwanted tattoo.
Founded by Dustin Nelson – a graduate from the University of Minnesota and certified Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist – Mr. Nelson is honored to be able to provide residents of the Twin Cities with the best laser technology and techniques currently used in the tattoo removal industry. Fallen Ink operates the Quanta Q plus C laser which is considered the Gold Standard in laser tattoo removal and is currently the only laser on the market that boasts three true wavelengths (including the Ruby 694 for the difficult greens and blues) to safely and effectively remove unwanted tattoo of all colors. For pain sensitive clients, Fallen Ink also operates the Zimmer Cyro 6 skin cooling machine to numb the treated area prior and during the tattoo removal process.
Dustin’s first experience in laser tattoo removal was in 2003 at the early age of 20. He had gotten a spur of the moment tattoo when he was 18 years old and quickly realized it was not something he wanted with him for the rest of his life.
As a tattoo enthusiast, Dustin didn’t want to completely remove the tattoo. Instead, he wanted to have it faded to the point where his new tattoo artist could successfully complete a cover-up of his old tattoo. The end result was great. However, the laser tattoo removal process and experience was sub-par to say the least.
“I remember my first laser treatments very well. I went to a doctor at the University of Minnesota to have the treatments done and the doctor started by injecting three full syringes of Novocain (or some sort of numbing solution) in and around my tattoo. The doctor literally probably stuck me with the needle 50 times or more because he would only inject a little bit of the Novocain with each shot. After what seemed to be an eternity of shots, the doctor finally grabbed the laser, zapped my tattoo (which only took 30 seconds), bandaged me up and told me to come back in 4 to 6 weeks for the second treatment. The doctor really didn’t inform me about the process of laser tattoo removal and how it works, and I knew the experience could be improved upon greatly.”
Since 2003, advances in laser tattoo removal technology have improved dramatically. Dustin continued to keep his eye on the tattoo removal industry getting certified as a Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist and spending time working at Rethink the Ink in Denver, Co; Dustin finally decided it was time to open his own practice and decided that St. Paul, MN was an ideal centrally located spot to introduce Fallen Ink to the Twin Cities market.
