I had a tattoo done in August in memory of my Grandfather, who i lost last March to cancer. He was fond of bird watching, so i had birds done on the outside of my left forearm. 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

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

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 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

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

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

I began the process today of having a tattoo removed from my chest. It's about eight years old, 2x3", and contains black, red, light blue, and pink. The dermatologist said it should take 4-6 sessions at $250 ea. I had my first one today and attached are pics. I'll continue to update the progress... READ MORE

So, when i was 17 i got a tattoo. familiar story, doi. even more familiar? it was UGLY. so, i've been embarking on a long-ass journey for tattoo removal. to this point, i've had around 9 q-switched treatments and, most recently, one picosure treatment for the green ink two weeks ago (dayum,...

This is day 1 of my removal process. The doctor injected the area with lidocaine to start which was pretty awful considering there is thin skin around that area and mostly bone (hip)... he started with one laser and I could feel it which was like a burning feeling, then moved on to the red...

You'd think being in your 30s you'd be a lot wiser in making decisions especially when it comes to something as permanent as a tattoo but not in my case. I'm 35 years old and recently got a forearm tattoo a couple of months back. I did enjoy it for probably a month after I'd gotten it but just... READ MORE
