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

Hi all, My name is Chad, and I'm a 22-year-old from Cardiff, Wales, UK. I've been going through laser tattoo removal for almost a year now, and I've gotten a lot of comfort from following your stories on here. In return, I now feel it's time to share my own story. I have two tattoos; one is... READ MORE

I have done so much research on laser tattoo removal and excision. It seems that there is very limited information tattoo excision. I have had two laser treatments on my butterfly tattoo and am happy with the progress, however with that being said, it is very slow going. The procedure is... 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

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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 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

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
