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 just had the procedure done today and I was pleasantly surprised. Im assuming that its because my tattoo isnt very thick, but it was really easy. I iced my arm for 10 minutes, then she did the laser which lasted about 15 seconds. Afterwards it stung a bit over the course of 2 or 3 hours post.... 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

I started my tattoo removal in November of 2013. I have had four treatments with the Q-Switched Yag in Nanaimo, BC and have my first Picosure appointment scheduled for today in Victoria, BC, Canada. I have experienced a fair amount of fading with the Q-switched and am overall happy with the... READ MORE

I have had other tattoo removal procedures done. The picosure seems to get rid of more ink faster. It doesn't do a great job on red ink. The surrounding skin does not get damaged like other lasers have done to mine in the past. It really does well on black and green ink. It has not damaged... READ MORE

Hi, I'm Rebecca and I'm a 19 year old Student in Edinburgh and im grateful to have stumbled across this forum! I was having a very rough time a while back and impulsively decided to get a tattoo thinking it would make me happier - however it did the opposite! I didn't need an appointment and the... READ MORE

I've had this faded tattoo on my hand for 2 years now and I just recently started a new job that is not tattoo friendly so I decided it was time to get rid of it. The specialist I met with was extremely honest told me if I was happy with the results of one session not to come back! The laser... READ MORE

I'd like to start this off with stating that I always have been and still am a tattoo enthusiast, I currently have 8 tattoos which will soon be 7 once my removal is complete. All of my tattoos mean something to me and the only reason why I'm removing one of them is because it didn't turn out... READ MORE

Hi guys, Well from reading many people's stories on here I guess I am in the right place. Basically a couple of months ago I decided to get the start of a sleeve tattoo. I was lucky enough to get in with a great artist and I thought I had the design all planned out so I would love it. A few... READ MORE

I live in a place where hand tattooes are culturally acceptable if not expected. I began the tattoo journey years ago with the help of a trusted artist. I always wanted to add to the tattoo, it was stunning and so unique. I went back to the trusted artist, we discussed for an extensive amount of... READ MORE

I got my first tattoo on my upper left arm in May, 2010. After the initial excitement wore off, I began to see that the quality wasn't all that great. Still, I thought it was okay and was content enough not to want to get rid of it. However, after a few months, it began bugging me and I started... READ MORE
