Fade/remove old tattoos for new tattoos

Clear the canvas

The trusted leader in laser fading, The Finery works with over 1,300 artists and tattoo studios in the Northeast to offer custom laser fading. We work with you and your artist to fade targeted areas so you can get the tattoo you want, not the tattoo that will cover the one you have.

Cover up TAttoos In a Nutshell

Here’s the deal: Getting a cover up tattoo is a fantastic way to take care of old faded body art. The challenge is knowing what is possible with the tattoo you have. Luckily laser tattoo removal can fade existing work safely and effectively. Most artists only need 3-5 sessions of laser removal before they can start to cover up old work. Multiple variables dictate the number of sessions. We encourage you to coordinate with your tattoo artist to figure out how much ink needs to be cleared to cover it properly.  A minimum of six weeks after your last laser session is required before you can re-cover the area with your new design.

partner testimonials

We partner with some of the best tattoo artists in the tattoo industry. This is what they have to say.


“As a tattoo artist, partnering with a The Finery was super intuitive. Traditional laser places are stuffy environments though, with doctors and white walls. I wanted to know the people behind the shop, really know them and trust them enough that I could refer my clients. I can work with my clients and Carmen and Phil through the whole [tattoo removal] process.”

Powerline Tattoo

My name is Kelly Doty and I’ve been working with The Finery for almost two years, between hosting their services for the Salem area, as well as receiving laser removal work for myself. It’s exciting not only to see my own regrettable tattoos disappear and make way for new work, but to also see these same doors opened for my tattoo clients. No one should have to live with the dumb choices one makes as an 18 year old.”

“Having laser before a cover up expands a clients spectrum and options for cover up ideas. Lightening the tattoo makes it easier for the artist to also mask the original image while creating a whole new piece.”

    “I know there are numerous companies out there that perform these types of procedures, but The Finery has the best lasers. In addition, it was close to home–I know they have locations in Boston, Philadelphia, New York, and even Brooklyn. I live in Brooklyn, so it was perfect.”
