Hell City Tattoo Festival

Astanza Laser is very excited to be attending the Hell City Tattoo Festival on August 24-26, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. The world-class tattoo festival started in 2002 and is a weekend-long conference that celebrates body art, the education of tattooing, and other forms of body modification.

Astanza Laser has helped individuals from various professional backgrounds succeed with laser tattoo removal, but one of the most prominent relationships we’ve built over the years is with tattoo shops. Tattoo artists around the world are seeing the benefits that laser tattoo removal adds to their shops and their artwork. With laser tattoo removal, tattoo artists are able to help their customers achieve the perfect look for their skin. Whether that entails fading a tattoo down for a cover-up, removing specific parts of a tattoo that are no longer desirable, or completely erasing a tattoo to make room for a new piece of artwork.

While I’m not going to share any of the presentations or materials presented over the weekend, I did want to share a few of my key takeaways and encourage those considering opening a MedSpa or laser tattoo removal clinic to attend one of these boot camps in person for themselves.
