Customers Reviews

  • I just started my tattoo removal journey on my full right arm sleeve with these folks. The staff is super knowledgeable, and very friendly. I opted to use numbing cream which I had purchased prior to coming and I was able to sit through 1 pass over the full sleeve without any breaks. My first appointment was 9/25/2022 and already can see a visible difference. In my opinion it is not as bad as getting the tattoo on and it's super quick. The healing process for me has been similar to getting the tattoo on.. no blisters and minor discomfort. I highly recommend Zapatat, these guys are the real deal!

  • I have only spoken to the owner Chris on the phone for a virtual consultation and he was absolutely amazing! He was so beyond nice and answered all of my questions. I think we talked for like 45 minutes and he clearly knows his stuff! When I go in for my first appointment in a couple months I know I will be in great hands. This place is miles ahead any other tattoo removal company and I can tell it will 100% be worth my drive, time, and money. I look forward to my removal and to meet the staff in person. I HIGHLY recommend!

  • I just completed an over the phone consultation with Chris and it could not have gone better. I’ve been researching his methods for months and had so many questions — he answered all of them in completely and politely which left me feeling so confident about my upcoming appointment. I will be sure to update my review after each session with pictures. Either way feeling very lucky to have found this place!

  • Upon arriving at the new Herndon VA location, I was greeted by Christian. We sat down for the consultation and he thoroughly explained the entire process in detail. Any questions I had he immediately responded to and answered each one without hesitation. After the consultation he introduced me to Carly who performed my procedure. Carly was just as professional and did an amazing job. I couldn’t have had a better experience and was very pleased with the outcome.

  • I cannot say enough about Zapatat. The owner Chris and his employees made me feel welcome and comfortable from the moment I walked in. Carly spent so much time explaining the process and making sure I was comfortable. For the actual procedure, they talked me through it, made me laugh and although it sounds weird, I really enjoyed myself. I would give them way more stars then 5 if I could!!!

  • Being this was my first tattoo removal session I’ve ever received. I wouldn’t necessarily know what to expect but overall the place was nice and clean and the practitioner who actually removed the tattoo was very nice. I didn’t care too much for the receptionist she seemed very snooty and I just didn’t like her energy but other than that everything was great.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much faster is ART®️ vs Conventional?

One ART®️ typically gets the same results in three months that takes one year (5-6 conventional treatments) to achieve. 2-3 ARTs will remove most tattoos vs 12-15 for most conventional removals. Not only does ART®️ removal tattoos faster, it also saves you time (fewer visits).

Why don’t most pictures show complete removal?

The short answer is that our pictures are real. Most are taken before the last treatment. Because people don't come back for a finish photo, we only get perfect picture when clients are removing more than one tattoo. One gets there first and Et Voila a perfect picture!

How long is an appointment?

Your first appointment will generally be one hour including paperwork, consultation and treatment. Follow-up treatment appointments will take 15 minutes or less. The ART®️ R20 will take 45 mins. We do not double book appointments so there is seldom any waiting.

How often can I get treated?
We recommend intervals that will minimize cost, safety and effectiveness. Conventional treatments are generally at 6-8 week intervals between treatments and 8-12 for ART®️ R20's. Shortening the time will not result in faster removal and will increase risk of side effects. We will specify the waiting period after each treatment depending on how you are responding.
