Radiotherapy tattoos

I am considering having the tattoos removed by laser as they are NOT the little pinpricks I was promised but rather large, (and a fetching blue colour- matches my still-blue boob!). However I am only a couple of weeks post-rads so I was wondering if it was likely that they may fade over time, in which case I wouldn’t bother with the removal, not being keen to submit to yet another procedure just yet purely for vanity. Has anyone had their tattoos fade, even if it takes a couple of years? Thanks.
