WARNING! Don’t Film Laser Tattoo Removal with Digital Cameras!

Andy Boyd posted this video showing damage to his Sony a7S II sensor caused by shooting video of laser tattoo removal.

Sensors can also be damaged from lasers used in concerts and nightclubs and even self-driving car lasers, but now there’s one more thing to add to the list — tattoo laser removal lasers – even when the laser isn’t being pointed directly at the camera.

Andy writes this in the description: “Hot tip: Don’t record laser tattoo removal on…anything. You can see with each pulse the sensor shows new damage. The repair cost was about as much as a new camera so try to avoid this. Club lasers can do this too but we’d never seen the reflection of a laser beam do damage, only when the beam itself hits the sensor.”

Please note that while this damage happened to a Sony a7S II, any digital camera is at risk – even DSLRs since their mirror is up during video filming.

So that’s our smokin’ hot tip for the day, if you’re ever asked to film a tattoo removal. Just say no…
