This week we sat down with Haley Suter, the Laser Manager at our Nashville center, to discuss the ins and outs of tattoos and tattoo removal. Spoiler: she’s had 3 tattoos removed herself!
Let’s get to it and hear what Haley has to say.
Q: What drew you to tattoo removal and to Invisible Ink Tattoo Removers?
In my 12 years of experience in working with lasers, I have always been interested in tattoo removal. I love the complexity and challenge it presents. It feels like it’s the most difficult, but most rewarding service to be able to offer a client.
Invisible Ink was a new opportunity to expand my knowledge and experience with lasers.
Q: What do you wish people knew about tattoo removal?
That it is a longer process than one might think. Sometimes people hate their tattoos and want them gone immediately but don’t realize it can take 1-2 years for full removal.
Q: What is the most rewarding thing about your job?
Helping someone “turn back the hands of time,” on something they did out of a dare, from a relationship ending, or just simply because they’re at a different place in their lives, makes me feel SO fulfilled.
Q: Have any tattoos of your own?
I have 10. The ones I have on my upper arm, I put tons of thought into. They have meaning and a story behind them.
Q: But you’re also having tattoos removed?
I’m in the process of having 3 tattoos removed so far!
The tattoos I’m getting removed are from when I was 17 and 18 years old. So, as you can imagine, not much thought went into them. I just walked in and pointed to something on a board and said “Yeah! That one looks good. Put that one me”
I will still continue to have my right arm tattooed though and plan to have a full sleeve soon!

CHRISTMAS! I’d move to the North Pole if I could.
