The History of Fade Away Laser

Watch a video of how tattoo artist Aleks Nedich developed a single tattoo studio into a network of tattoo and laser tattoo removal clinics across Minnesota and Canada

Aleks Nedich began Northeast Tattoo a decade ago in Northeast Minneapolis and quickly discovered that he lacked the tools to effectively create high quality cover-up tattoos (read The Art of the Coverup). Aleks was one of the first tattoo artists in the country to add laser tattoo removal services to his tattoo shop. Since laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure, Aleks approached childhood friend and physician, Dr Thomas Barrows, to become a direct partner in the operations and to develop the best protocols and to supervise the medical aspects of the practice.

Thomas and Aleks eventually developed a wealth of knowledge on the subject of tattoos, laser tattoo removal, and laser-assisted tattoo cover-ups. Northeast Tattoo grew from a single location to now four locations in Minnesota and Canada and they have performed more procedures than anyone in the state. They have become industry experts and have spoken on many occasions at events throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, South America, and Canada on the topic of laser tattoo removal. Quanta Lasers in Golden Colorado took notice and have supported our Minnesota operations for nearly a decade with excellent cutting-edge technology and ongoing support of our operations.
