4 Hour Round Trip
"I cannot rant and rave about Jon, his service, and this place enough. From day 1, Jon was honest about the process. He was upfront about the cost, the time frame, and the discomfort. I never had a tattoo removed before so I had no idea what to expect but everything Jon told me on day one was accurate and honest throughout my time there. I ultimately ended up going for 5 sessions spaced out over 2 years until the tattoo was faded enough that I could get it covered. The best review I could leave Jon, New Wave, or anyone considering a removal here is this... my sessions lasted 40 seconds. No joke. 40 seconds. And I drove nearly 2 hours ONE WAY to get there each time without second guessing it. How many businesses would you drive almost 4 hours round trip to spend a single solitary minute?? Exactly. If you want a tattoo removed and are serious about doing so, go there."
Tim R./Honesdale PA
Worth the Hour and Half Drive
"Jon was such a pleasure to work with! He was very honest and thorough about the process and always made me feel comfortable. The office is extremely well kept and his services were most definitely worth the hour and a half drive! Being that I am still a college student, I was a little hesitant to start treatments. Though, Jon was so helpful and understanding of my situation that I knew right away I had found the right place! I cannot say enough good things and I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else! Thank you Jon!"
Bridget M./Coatesville PA
Drive Over an Hour
"Awesome guy, super down to earth, easy to talk too. If you're nervous about whatever you're getting done, this is the guy to go to. Great work very quick and accurate, great prices too. I was shocked when he told me how much it would cost to get me and my father's tattoos removed. Definitely go to this man. I will be telling everyone I know about his services. His shop is over an hour away from my house and he makes the drive well worth it! Even though he only needed to work on me for fifteen seconds... haha... it was well worth it!"
Nick C./Jermyn PA
The Only Place to Go
"New Wave is the ONLY place to go for tattoo removal. I’ve been going to Jonathan for over a year and he always makes me comfortable and does everything with safety in mind. He knows exactly how to adjust the lasers according to skin tone, size of tattoo, line weight, etc. He has lots of certifications on display and has really fair prices. He really knows what he’s doing and I wouldn’t recommend going anywhere else."
Isabel S./Nazareth PA
Removed All Anxiety
"I just went to get two tattoos removed today being I’m going into the Military. It was my first time and I was very nervous but this man, John... made it so easy going and took my anxiety levels 100% away. 100% satisfied and the fact he talked me through the process, took my mind off of the removal process. Also, he made me feel 100% comfortable and in my opinion, comfortability truly matters in a tattoo shop, tattoo removal, wherever... it was also a very enjoyable experience. Also very decent pricing. I 100% recommend going to John for a tattoo removal! 10/10 ((: So enjoyed my experience!! Thank you so much John. He was also very knowledgeable in what he was doing and so, so polite!! Especially for your care in customers 😁 if I ever have an oopsies again... def coming to you! Very professional as well!
Amanda M./Edwardsville PA
Worth the Hour Drive
"After a quick Google search of tattoo removal near me, I came across New Wave. It took all of two seconds for me to read Jonathan's positive reviews and decide to drive over an hour for my very first removal experience. Jonathan is knowledgeable and honest- he described exactly what it would feel like, how long it would take, and that there was really nothing to be nervous about. New Wave is clean, professional, and timely. Another plus for me was that he actually answered the phone for my first point of contact, another reason I drove an hour away because my local place ignored my inquiries. I was able to schedule an appointment within three days. I will be returning without a doubt!"
Courtney R./Dunmore PA
Can't Believe I Waited
"Went this morning to have a 22 year old tattoo removed. I can’t believe I waited this long! Jon was very informative, honest and friendly! Was ready for me when I walked in the door. Also, sooooo clean!!!!! If you’ve been wanting to have a tat removed, do it. It doesn’t hurt at all."
Alissa K./Sellersville, PA
A+ Highly Recommend
"A+, highly recommend. Jonathan always made me feel comfortable every session, and was up front about the amount of needed sessions and costs. He even recommended I stop earlier than I expected when he could have charged me more. Great equipment, extremely clean place."
Robert O./Bethlehem, PA
Seamless and Comfortable
"I had my first session with John today and it was just as expected. He was very polite, professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful! He lived up to his amazing reviews! Before my appointment, he called me and we talked about my tattoo removal. I didn’t need to ask any questions because he was so thorough, he covered every concern that I might have had. The establishment was very clean and pricing was unbeatable! If you are looking for Safe as well as cost efficient tattoo removals, look no further! I would recommend John to my family and friends! Thank you for making this process so seamless and comfortable for me!!!"
"I am very impressed with the level of professionalism that was shown here at New Wave Tattoo Removal. I will definitely be going back and referring anyone that wants to get tattoos removed. I went to other locations and I’m not impressed. This is definitely the place to go for good results for a fair price."
Derek C./Temple, PA
"As a physician, I examine a lot of patients and see tons of really bad tattoos. Out of all the laser tattoo removal companies in the Valley, I consistently refer to New Wave Laser Tattoo Removal because he consistently does top quality work with the best equipment. I would highly recommend this business to any and all of my patients and friends if they're looking at a laser tattoo removal procedure to be done."
Dr. Phil O'Brien/Bethlehem, PA
Better Than Dermatologist
"I was working with dermatologist for five sessions with no progression. I immediately began to notice a substantial fade in my tattoo within days of my first session at New Wave. Incredibly professional, cost-appropriate, and a clean environment. Highly highly recommend!"
Angie P./Fleetwood, PA
Searched High and Low
"I started my tattoo removal journey 664 days ago. I searched high and low to find a reputable place. I found Jon at New Wave in Oct 2018. The place was very clean and he was able to give me appointment times/days that were very convenient for my busy schedule. I drove an hour and ten minutes for each session. He set all the expectations up front (costs, approx amount of sessions, time it would take, showed pics/examples, etc.) and answered all of my questions. Pricing was very reasonable compared to others. Equipment / technology was newer - great shape - super clean. Fast forward to today - almost 2 years and 7 full sessions later, the 6x6” meaningless tribal tattoo that was on my back for the last 20 years is gone!
The tattoo had red, orange, yellow, white, and black colors in it, and while I wanted to come back every 8 weeks because I was impatient, Jon helped guide me into making the right decision in order to give me the best possible outcome. Sometimes that meant that I just needed to allow some extra time between. His expertise kept me in check and I’m glad I listened (most of the time) because I am happy with the results. I always felt comfortable. Jon was super receptive and did a nice job. Thanks for putting up with my compulsiveness the last couple years Jon.
I highly recommend Jon and New Wave."
Daniel C./ Gilbertsville ,PA
Pleased With Professionalism
"I must say, I was very pleased with the professionalism and cleanliness of the location. At first I was very hesitant about the whole experience in having my tattoo removal of eyebrows, but Jon made me feel comfortable and at ease. I'm happy with my results and i will definitely recommend his work to everyone. Thanks Jon."
Maria M./ Whitehall, PA
"Absolutely, WOW. I don’t believe words can express my level of satisfaction in this experience. First of all Jon was polite, informative, truthful and very good at his work. The price was unbeatable! The place was super super clean. The service was perfect. The tattoo removal itself was so much less painful than anticipated and so so so worth the outcome. Absolutely amazing outcome! I could not be more happy that I chose to do this at New Wave. I am beyond grateful and beyond impressed by this business. 5 stars all the way around. I without reservation recommend this place to those wanting quality tattoo removal services."
Worth the Two Hour Drive
"Very personable, Veteran Friendly, and makes it a point to do what's best for you rather than what's best for his pocket. It was well worth driving 2 hrs today rather than go to the place down the street from me who gave me totally different unrealistic answers."
Brian E.-Rowland, PA
Questions Answered Thoroughly
"Everything was explained in detail and all my questions were answered thoroughly. 1st session went very well, less painful and very fast than what I had expected. Looking forward to going back for my next session."
Melissa C.-Allentown, PA
Everything is Positive
"Everything about the experience is very positive. Easy to navigate website that's very informative. Quick and easy appointment scheduling and reminders. Jon is very welcoming, friendly and totally non-judgmental. He's honest with what it's going to take, how it's going to feel, what the results will be. He's doing a great service for all of us who have gotten tattoos we shouldn't have! ;) Thanks, Jon, for a great first impression, making me feel comfortable, and assisting me in erasing my mistake! ;) Highly recommend!"
Sasha D.-E Stroudsburg, PA
"I was a little weary about all the great reviews at first and thought they were too good to be true. I’m so relieved that after three consultations with other facilities that I was unhappy with, I ended up here. Clean, quick, and far less painful than it’s hyped up to be. Plus you can’t beat the price! Jon exceeded my expectations."
Erica R.-Doylestown, PA
Discreet, Attentive, Focused
"Jon deserves yet another 5-star commendation. His place has great atmosphere, is very clean and quiet, and the business is well-managed. He provides the confidence of his knowledge and skill, and offers a tailored approach in his service every time, being fastidious about reviewing the effects and outcome of the previous treatment prior to devising and beginning a new treatment. He spends the necessary time with me, communicating his intentions and gauging my expectations. Jon is laid-back and casual, but far from flippant and careless. A true professional, discreet, attentive, and genuinely focused on comfort and results. We are making progress - yes, it's a tedious process and requires patience - but Jon is doing what he can to ensure it's as painless as possible, convenient to my schedule, and at reasonable rates. Can't quite say it's fun, but if you're going to have a tattoo removed, no need to look elsewhere."
Molina P. -Blairstown, NJ
Worth The Recognition
"I do not normally write reviews, but I feel like this establishment is worthy of a five star review and recognition is deserved. During my entire appointment with Jon I was made to feel at ease from all of my concerns, and comfortable in a relaxed, zen-like atmosphere. Jon is not only knowledgeable about the service that he provides, he also makes sure it is done properly and in a very professional manner. It is easy to see that Jon has made a huge investment in his clients by offering the state of art equipment that he does. My tattoo of 22 years has already faded with this one visit alone. I am very pleased with my experience and cannot wait for my second visit."
Rebekah B.-Walnutport, PA
In The Right Hands Here
"Jon is amazing. I have had approx. 12 treatments on two tattoos . I had a very bright tattoo on my foot and also one on my thigh I wanted him to remove. It's been almost two years that I have known Jon . I researched several places but was never quite happy with the responses I received and something just didn't feel right about the places I visited and or the people I spoke with. I never really got the sense I was in good hands. Then I met Jon. I'll never forget my teenage daughter went with me and the moment we walked in to his office I had a very safe and warm feeling. I couldn't get over how clean and sanitary it was and still is. He took all the time I needed to tell me exactly how the process worked, about how long it would take, and I respected his honesty about how difficult it may be to get all of the ink out of my foot. It posed a challenge. I will say he was up for it. I think what impressed me most about him was that he actually helped design the machine that he uses to make sure every little detail could be handled. I've seen horrific pictures of people from other places that have had removals and the blisters and the scarring that occurred were horrendous. I think everyone looking to get a tattoo removed needs to understand it is a process and it does take time and the more color the longer it takes. If you don't mind blisters, burns or scarring by all means go to the other people because you will not have that with Jon. I knew how long upfront and was prepared to wait it out to have it removed safely. I trust Jon and his opinion 100% and I would tell anyone that if you are even considering getting a tattoo removed please call him. Give him the opportunity to sit down and do a consultation. I promise you it will be worth your time!"
Alicia K. - Whitehall, PA
Most Honest and Most Affordable
"I would Strongly Recommend Jon over at New Wave Tattoo. He is very upfront with the process, pricing, and working with your schedule. I went on a bunch of consultations before Jon. He was hands down the most honest and the most affordable. I took the extra money i saved and got my teeth whitened there...Strongly Recommend New Wave!"
Brian M. - Sparta, NJ
Look No Further
"I'm sure if you're looking for laser tattoo removal you're doing a lot of research right now, and let me (and the other reviewers) tell you to look no further - comfortably know that you've found the place to go. Jon is friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. It's an expensive process by nature, but Jon is super reasonable to my student/young professional budget. I was really nervous when I booked my first appointment, but I know I'm in good hands here, and I'm so relieved to have found this place."
Sydney D. - Collegeville, PA
Jon is the Best Around
"Jon is incredible! He made me feel so comfortable - I had 4 tattoos from small to large that I was getting removed. He was so easy to talk to, explained the process especially after care. I couldn’t be happier with the first session & how much improvement there was. I highly recommend if anyone who is looking to remove old (or new) tattoos that you go to Jon (New Wave). He really is the BEST around!! Can’t wait to see the final product."
Jaime C. - Catasauqua, PA
Best Removal Place I've Been To
"Just got a treatment done, Jon is a class act, very nice guy, you can tell he is good at what he does, just by the way he examines your tattoos and by the information he give you, I enjoyed my experience and will be going back there. Best tattoo Removal place I’ve been to by far!"
Matt G.- Bethlehem, PA
Didn't Rush Things
"Very very clean inside and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. I went in to remove a tattoo and he took his time and didn’t rush things. I will definitely be going back and referring people to him!"
Takiyah T.- Bangor, PA
Knowledgeable and Honest
"Jonathan is very knowledgeable and honest about the tattoo removal process. I have been to another place for tattoo removal and it definitely hurt more and was not as effective where I went. I am really noticing a difference in my tattoo and the process is not too painful and healing time is very quick. Very happy with finding this place to remove my tattoo."
Krista M.- Lebanon, NJ
Worth the Hour and 35 Minute Drive
"Jon was amazing and honest. I had my consultation and got treated right away, I was referred by a co-worker and it was the best referral ever. Worth the hour and 35 minute drive!"
Moreeni S. -Trenton, NJ
Switched from Dermatologist
"Went with my mother to start her tattoo removal process. We left a reputable dermatologist office to work with John and his staff in this process. Priced beyond competitive, Knowledgeable, Clean Environment, caring and honest are the best words I can use to describe our first visit."
Tara S.- Milford, NJ
Felt at Home
"Best decision I made going to new wave tattoo.. I had my first consultation with Jon and he was honest and gave me so much helpful information about how many sessions will be needed and the time it will take. I got my first treatment done and it was great! The room was nice and clean, and Jon made you feel like your at home. It was very comfortable. I am looking forward to keep going back for my removal process. Would not go any where else. Thanks again Jon!"
Cody G.-Bethlehem. PA
Informative and Upfront
"Had my consult and first session today. Jonathan was very informative and upfront about the entire process from beginning to end. The cooling machine he uses during and after the session help so much. Very clean facility also. Highly recommend."
Sophia K. -Newton, NJ
A Hidden Gem
"This is the second place I've been to for tattoo removal and I came across it simply by accident on Groupon just st the time I needed it.
Let me start by saying the first thing you'll notice is how clean and calming you'll find the reception area.
Then the Owner/Operator will take you back to the laser room and start your selected procedure. But, before anything, he will carefully go over your medical history, medications, previous attempts at removal, and he will photograph the area to be done to document your progress. He will then throughly prep the area prior to the laser treatment to make it as painless as possible.
Now, I have to tell you, getting a tattoo removed is much more painful than having one put on, so think BEFORE you ink!! Having said that, this has been an excellent process!! I had a solid black 4" bird on my inner wrist, and thanks to New Wave Laser Tattoo Removal, it's almost gone...
I highly recommend this place!! A hidden gem!!!"
Patti C. - Saylorsburg, PA
"My laser removal treatments were stretched out over the course of about two years and I am really happy with the results. What was once a red and black tattoo on my shoulder, is now a hardly noticeable (albeit still healing) couple of spots-which will most likely go away over time. Most people are afraid of tattoo removal processes, but I felt comfortable at all times. Jon is incredibly professional, welcoming, and he was honest about the treatment plan, which was important to me. If you have a tattoo you’d like removed, I highly recommend Jon at New Wave! Thanks again!"
Courtney D.- Allentown, PA
Upfront and Honest
"I have had two removal sessions so far and Jon has been wonderful. He was upfront and honest about the cost and the removal process. I had a lot of questions and Jon took the time to answer each one in great detail. The first time I went I had my husband and my 2 kids with me and I felt very comfortable with my children there. The place is spotless and very comforting. One of my biggest concerns about tattoo removal was that it was going to hurt but Jon made sure that I was ok and would take whatever breaks I needed. If anyone is looking for tattoo removal this is definitely the place to go. You won't find anything better."
Anastasia D. - Milford, NJ
"Jonathan made my first experience amazing. I was so frightened by all the videos I had watched on You Tube and horrific reviews I had read. Jonathan was so calm and respectful and truly showed amazing empathy and sympathy towards my concerns. The procedure itself was basically painless. I was at such ease. I can't wait to go back. Thank you so much for being my support system in my journey."
Dyanne L. - Washington, NJ
"I learned the hard way how Important proof reading is lol. My husband and I got matching tattoos last year while in Rome and mine says “Mattew” instead of Matthew. John has been great so far in working with me. We are removing the ending of the tattoo so that my artist at home can fix it. I’m so thankful I went to New Wave! Super clean establishment. The process was quick and easy. Minimal pain. And no scarring so far! I’m about to book my second visit and I am pleasantly surprised with how much of the tattoo is already gone. Thank you John!"
Celsey K.- Easton, PA
Prices & Quality Beat Any Market
"First off, I want to say, if you are considering doing removal, don't waste your time looking anywhere else because this is the most professional, most relaxing and the best prices in all of Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. Professionalism: Jon was upfront, caring, and was not there to make a dollar. His interest was to gain relationship rather than just business. He knew what he was talking about and dead on as far as the sessions that I required. The place is tranquil and peaceful and comfortable. Super clean. I would be lying if I said it didn't hurt but Jon made sure that I take all the breaks I needed (which I did not take any because he did it so fast that I just sucked it up! My tat is, was on my back and its rather large) The prices: lets just say that for what he offers, and the quality of his work, his prices out beat any in the market. Some companies will having you coming back to waste more and more money. That is their strategy. I recommend this place hands down!!!!"
Maribel C. - Allentown, PA
Best Prices, Highest Quality
“I highly recommend New Wave! I had my first session with Jon and am extremely happy. He is a really good dude, very professional but not to the point where you don't understand what he's talking about. He explains exactly what he's going to do and why. The office is amazingly clean and very chill. Jon's prices are by far the best in the business! I have had removal sessions at other places that were twice as expensive with way less quality. Jon uses the best machines available that do an amazing job of breaking up the ink! If you are considering laser tattoo removal I strongly suggest New Wave!!!"
Robert C. – Upper Black Eddy, PA
Best from Boston to PA
"I've been to 4 different laser tattoo removal places from Boston to here and I've had the best experience at New Wave by far. I've also seen the most results. Highly recommended!"
Mare Lena C. -Drums, PA
Beats Out Boston Clinics
"I’ve gone to 3 other laser tattoo removal places in Boston before coming here. I’ve had the best experience here. Jon is amazing at what he does. The place is clean and modern. I’ve had the most results here than from any of the other places I’ve tried. Highly recommend!"
MLC - Boston, MA
Cost is Reasonable
“An answer to a prayer. I like to ask a lot of questions & Jon has a lot of knowledge. I immediately felt comfortable. I cannot wait to have my mistake removed. I live on a fixed income, but the cost is reasonable. I am looking forward to putting the past behind me. I absolutely recommend this place if you have a tattoo you want removed. I promise you will not be disappointed.”
Jessica G. - Easton, PA
"I cannot say enough good things about New Wave! In addition to being a really nice guy, Jon's professionalism and flexibility were what kept me driving over an hour away for our appointments. I went in more than a year ago in the hopes of having a 5" tattoo removed from my back before my wedding this spring, and I'm happy to say that I just had my final session last week! From the first appointment, Jon was very transparent about the process and results I could expect. Patience is key! Thank you so much!!"
Ellen M.- Phoenixville, PA
No Pressure, No Rush
"He spent a lot of time going over everything in the consultation. I didn't feel rushed or pressured. I was pretty informed before I walked in, but still new questions came up. It's only been 24 hours since the treatment so I don't know overall how the results will be as of yet but I can say within these 24 hours, some grey has already disappeared. It's not always price when you make a decision like this; it's also who is treating you. I had a good feeling so I went for it. My tattoo is on the large side- my entire deltoid and 1/2 my bicep."
Marc V. - Center Valley, PA
“Absolutely beautiful office, extremely neat and tidy. The woman at the front desk was very personable and greeted me using my first name! Jonathan, who performed my actual treatment, was also very friendly, as well as knowledgeable, and the epitome of professionalism! My first removal treatment was very fast, easy, and relatively pain free. This was my first ever tattoo removal experience on a fairly awkward area and I was sooo nervous, but the great team at New Wave made me feel 100% comfortable and I cannot wait for my next session!”
Chelsea M. - Bethlehem, PA
Top Notch Business
“New Wave Laser Tattoo Removal is a top notch business. The facility was very clean and comfy. Jon is fantastic! I was nervous going into it about the pain, but Jon was very knowledgeable and could answer all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable and not as nervous. His ability to work around your schedule is amazing. You will not find a place that treats their customers as well as they do at New Wave. The prices are extremely reasonable and they offer a lot of discounts and promos, which is always nice to save some money while receiving quality work. I highly recommend New Wave Laser Tattoo Removal!!”
Ally C.- Allentown, PA
Best in NY, NJ, and PA
“If I could rate more than 5 stars I would! From someone who has built their career building valuable relationships with clients my standards are high- but I was totally blown away. I waited 2 years to get laser tattoo removal for my shoulder tattoo. I did A LOT of research of laser tattoo removal facilities all around the Lehigh Valley, New Jersey, and New York and I am so so SO glad I picked New Wave! Jon is absolutely fantastic. The facility is clean, welcoming, and up-to-date with quality technology. Jon walks you through the entire process and explains every detail before continuing each phase..."
Erin C. – Easton, PA
Up Front & Honest

Significant Tattoo Changes
“I've had 4 sessions with Jon at New Wave tattoo removal. He is very professional and explained the procedure to me thoroughly before he started. I am having 2 tattoos removed, and I have seen significant change in both since we started 4 months ago. The office is extremely clean and his equipment is top of the line. Jon is excellent at tattoo removal, and I would recommend him to anyone."

I'm excited to finally get the process started! You were incredibly informative and so laid back, and my visit was very stress free and quick. I can't wait to come back for my next session!"
