Friday Pop Quiz #269

The correct answer is C. 755. 

The majority of this tattoo from substances causing green pigment (eg, chromium oxide) requires a laser addressing around the 755-nm region, such as with a ruby or alexandrite laser.

Wavelengths of 310, 532, 1064, and 1450 nm are not the major wavelengths targeted by lasers to address the removal of a green tattoo.
