In brief: Sometimes

Blisters are not uncommon but if they open, you may want to discuss treatment with your physician to minimize scarring.

In brief: Probably yes

I perform a significant amount of laser tattoo procedures on long island.
It is true may patients develop a blister, i always tell my patients keep it clean if it pops let it drain dong peel off the skin or roof of the blister it acts like a bandage and apply an antibiotic like neosporin, Bacitracin or triple antibiotic for the next few days till it is healed. Red and thick black blister alot.

In brief: Yes

Blistering is common following laser tattoo treatments.
Check with the center where your treatment was performed for guidance around how best to care for it and optimize quick healing.
