I currently have two tattoos that I really love, and one that I hate. The one I want removed was the first tattoo I ever got (and also the largest of the three). I was only 18 and like many 18 year olds, made an impulsive decision and have regretted it since then. I also imagined at the time... READ MORE

Where to begin… i'm sure my story is similar to many on here… I had thought about this tattoo on and off for a while, but when it came to it, it was a spur of the moment/totally impulsive kind of thing like, i liked the idea of it but hadn't seriously considered if i want it on ME and in...

I've got the lower part of my arm in various colours, I'm a week after my first treatment on the first section. The laser used was the RevLite SI by Cynosure and for this first treatment the colours treated were Black (very dense) and red. The first treatment went well probably about 10x6 cm... READ MORE

I recently posted this in a discussion, but was encouraged to start a review in hopes to generate more feedback/advice. Hey guys, I recently got a tattoo (my 3rd) on my wrist/forearm area and began to regret it as soon as I left the shop. The tattoo itself is very well done and looks great,... READ MORE

It was my dream of long time but now my body and mind is in ruins. I had a large tattoo of a bird done on my shoulder blade (black and browns) and it has taken a hold of me like the reaper himself. The past 3 weeks have been a nightmare. I weep like I have lost a dear family member, unable to... READ MORE

I've had this tattoo on my inner bicep for a little over 3 years now. I regretted it the day I got it but had to live with it. I finally decided to get rid of it after a couple of months of going back and forth. It got a bit swollen & a bit bruised. No difference yet as it is too soon. I have... READ MORE

It has been a while since I started my removal in August. I have been using the q-switched ruby laser to remove the black. So far I have had mixed opinions on how it is going. I have been having some trouble with the removal of the shading as it seems to be leaving a ghost effect. Not sure if it... READ MORE

I had a great experience with saline solution tattoo removal. However, after the second session the tattoo removal location closed shop. I tried laser removal on a different tattoo also with two sessions with inferior results. I would highly recommend the saline over laser! ANYONE KNOW OF SALINE ?? READ MORE

Well I have had this huge black tattoo on my neck for 6 years and started getting laser treatments in 2012. On August 8th I got my 3rd treatment.

When I turned 18 in 2002 I received my first tattoo. Over the next 10 years I managed to acquire 8 tattoos plus 3 cover ups and 19 piercings. I fluctuated in weight from 160 lbs to 250 PLUS lbs. In 2012 I met someone who changed my life. Being asked about my past forced me to face it. The last 2... READ MORE

My motivation is basically that I'm just not the kind of person that should have a neck tattoo, not that I'm putting down anyone with, I have had multiple people tell me, " wow, I never would of thought you would have a neck tattoo". Aside from all that, it really gives me a lot of social... READ MORE

Within hours of it being finished, i wanted it gone. It's bigger than i wanted, and having seen it in pictures since, i... READ MORE
