Have made some horrible decisions in my life especially with tattoos. I'm an ex gang member and drug user. I've made a drastic change in my life in the last 5 years. Glad to say I'm clean and sober and a Father to my children. Anyway I wanted to share my progress in my laser tattoo removal... READ MORE

Hello... I don't know what's been wrong with me, but since I too the other one of these tattoos I hate, I didn't tell for my parents of that and I've been hiding it in public places and everywhere. Now it's getting summer and it's very hot to wear long sleeves all the time and peolple are... READ MORE

I just went for my first laser tattoo removal treatment, and thought I should start to share my experience as i'd read a couple of others' experiences on realself and was really heartened by all the encouraging comments going around (less so by the i-told-you-so trolls). MY STORY i don't feel... READ MORE

This is a follow up to a previous review I wrote under the title "Coping with tattoo regret and removal." I signed off for a bit but then was not able to continue with my old account. I will sum up my previous review and update you on my current progress. I got my very first tattoo in Jan 2013.... READ MORE

A few years ago my parents forced me to remove my tattoo and I used a Q switch laser. The experience was so painful that I never returned and decided to get the tattoo touched up. 5 years later, I returned to the same dermatologist and facility were I learned they had pico laser. The experience... READ MORE

I have been wanting a tattoo for years. My partner wasn't so thrilled at the idea when I announced I had an appointment to finally get one. It isn't a decision that was spontaneous. It was the result of a long reflection and I put a lot of time in it, and choosing the place, motif and artist.... READ MORE

About two weeks ago I had a very large colorful cover up tattoo done on my stomach. I had to have two 6-7 hour sessions done to cover up the old tattoo and it is still not even completely finished but I've had enough done to know that I hate it so needless to say I will not be going back. The... READ MORE

I have a chest tatoo of the football team Manchester United. I got this done approx. 2 years ago. I booked myself in for tatoo removal at a clinic in Plymouth in England recently and my first session was on December 12th. I had the colour and the black outlining treated and it cost me £60...

After several years of wanting to remove my 2 tattoos that were reminders of a wild youth, I finally took the plunge last week the day before I turn 45 and started treatment. I went in for my consultation during the middle of the work day and met with the nurse and then with the business... READ MORE

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

Yesterday I completed my first session of laser removal. In total, Im having three tattoos removed. Two of the tattoos being removed are on my arms, and the third, is on my back. I must say, I'm a little disappointed after my first session. I know this is going to be a process. And I know that... READ MORE

Hey guys, so my story is quite frustrating. I originally had a bird design on my hip that I liked, however I made a decision to add some flowers and shading to it- worst mistake of my life! I had it done by a different artist to the original. The tattoo ended up becoming so dark, large and dense... READ MORE

I have wanted a lotus tattoo with this placement for years. I have been researching artists for a long time as well. I had gone to a tattoo convention and chose an artist with an absolutely beautiful portfolio. My boyfriend actually had gotten a tattoo by the same artist, and his turned out... READ MORE

Hello, My name is Cathy and I have an unwanted tattoo. I began the picosure laser tattoo removal last Friday 5/16/2014 at Allure Medical Spa in Shelby Township, MI. The $600 I paid includes 4 picosure sessions, one session every 6 weeks. the doctor there said it would take about 4 treatments to... READ MORE

TL;DR- If you find your tattoo has angry, raised, bright red marks on it after a laser session, do not continue with it until the marks are completely gone. Find a new doctor if they say it is okay to continue lasering. These marks can become permanent. I didn't care about my tattoos until one... READ MORE

I Feel it's important to share my experience with tattoo laser removal to help others. My tattoo is 6x12 upper back. It is a cover up, however the tattoo before was very small light circles down my spine , the majority of the tattoo being removed is the cover up. I have had 1 treatment Sept 7... READ MORE

I wanted to upload and write about my laser tattoo removal experience I just went through today (literally typing with the bandage on). Thought it would be a good share for those that are considering it and are hesitant. All I'm going to write about for now is the actual process of it as I just... READ MORE

I was stupid to get a tattoo (143 Chas), worst mistake ever. I went and got it covered, but hate it even more, ten years now. My job has a no tattoo policy so I am a part of the long sleeves gang. I decided to get it removed, I have had 2 procedures done. I am sad because I have yet to see any... READ MORE

I am just starting out on my tattoo removal journey and figured I would contribute my story here. Reading other people's reviews was very helpful in making my decision to get started with laser treatments. Background.... So for about 5 years I have had a tattoo on my forearm. When I first...

Well I got this tattoo in spring of 2012. It's about 2.5 by 2.5 inches and it is located on my hip. At first I loved it but now I have completely outgrown it. I am really regretting not giving it more thought in the first place. I've recently considered laser removal and after lots of thought... READ MORE
