I never thought i would be one to regret a tattoo and yet here I find myself regretting and hating myself for it. To start I have multiple tattoos, the others I love and am happy with. I have one tattoo on the upper portion of my right arm of a koi, water and a banner reading "cure SMA",... 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

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...

Hey Everyone, I got this tattoo less than a year ago. I went in wanting a hummingbird flying out of lots of colour on my forearm. At the last minute I decided to have it put higher up on my arm with only a little of it on my forearm. I thought it was ok when I got it, I wasn't too fussed... READ MORE

Hi all- I have been scouring this site reading all of the reviews/input and it has been extremely helpful, so I decided to post about my first experience. I went to Dr. Tattoff in Sherman Oaks, CA for my first appointment yesterday. I am having 4 tattoos removed in total. A full sleeve (outline... 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

As of now I'm being treated with the Yag and Ruby lasers to remove a tattoo I got back in Dec. of 2013. After a deep depression and getting past the fact I had gotten the tattoo, I figured tattoo removal was best for me. The tattoo I had gotten was done by the same artist right after I had...

My name is April. I’m 30 years old. I recently got a tattoo that I have soooooo many mixed feeling about. This is my story…… On March 1st, my best friend and I went to go get tattoos. She got a humming bird for her grandmother who just passed, and I got mine, a tribute to my father... 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 am still undergoing removal.] My tattoo is located on my forearm, it is about 5cm x 2cm. I had it done 2 years ago. I am hoping I can get close to a complete removal... but right now I can only hope for the best. Let me know what you think of my progress! The procedure is being done by the... READ MORE

Hi! So I got a tattoo end of February 2013 and immediately regretted it. Less than a week later I started the laser treatments to have it removed. I went to a specialist in laser tattoo removal who assured me my skin would return to normal. Six treatments plus 1 year later it still hasn't. I'm... 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

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

I got this tattoo when I was 18 and have since grown out of the placement and tattoos in general. I have several other tattoos that I want removed but this is the most intolerable. I'm not sure that it will ever come off as it is relatively new, colorful, and a high quality professional tattoo.... READ MORE

Hello everyone. First of all, i'm glad to have found this place where people obviously have the same feelings as i have had. Im 18 (Soon to be 19) and live in Denmark, Europe. I got a fresh tattoo with a motive which i wanted, but as soon as it was there i just felt horrible. Having a tattoo... READ MORE

It's too early to review as yet as I've only had one treatement, but I've created a diary blog of my tattoo removal in London. All I can say so far is that it hurts, a lot! I have decided to create a blog to show the progress of getting my tattoo removed (apologies for showing so much bum... READ MORE

My husband and I got engaged on the beach and I consider him and God my "anchors" that keep me grounded...this lead up to me getting my small anchor tattoo (all black) on my wrist (1 inch x 1 inch). The first time it was done by the tattoo artist it wasn't symmetrical at all. I went back and had... READ MORE

I feel like we already know each other. I had a review before, but someone I know from work was talking about realself and I got sketched and removed all my pics and closed my account. They weren't talking about tattoo removal, but I still don't feel like talking to anyone at work about it ever.... READ MORE

Had my first treatment today. The pain was bearable, I thought it would hurt a lot worst. The worst part was when it was over and the burning sensation afterwards for about 45 min. I see a little fading and I'm very anxious/nervous about all of this. I hope this will be worth it. I'm very... READ MORE

I had a tat done and stupidly did not check the transfer before actually getting it inked, thus afterwards I noticed... its the wrong way round. My little dragon was facing the wrong way on my arm. I loved the tattoo itself, it was purely the positioning that got to me. Now this my sound picky... READ MORE
