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

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

Hello! I have been looking at reviews and posts on RealSelf for a while now and it has made me feel a lot better about my own situation, which I frequently feel extremely stressed out or depressed about. Thanks everyone for keeping each other hopeful and sharing useful information! As for me, I... READ MORE

I wanted to share my experience to help others that might be in the same situation, with a huge regret and considering laser tat removal. Six months ago, I went & got a tattoo that was supposed to be a dedication of my love for my grandfather, the man who raised me and taught me everything I... READ MORE

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

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 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

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

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
