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 had my first laser treatment yesterday. I had it done at Dermatology Associates of East Texas in Tyler, Texas. I'm very happy with my experience at the doctor's office. The laser did indeed hurt very much but it was fast. The tattoo I'm removing is about 1/2" to 3/4" wide and goes all the way... READ MORE

I'm Frank Jones III (22 years old) from Memphis, TN. About 5 years I decided to get a tattoo and I was thinking if I'm going to get one I want it to be VISIBLE. Wtf was I thinking lol. Here I am 17 yrs old walking around high school with a neck tattoo looking ridiculous. At the time I didn't... READ MORE

Well this is my story In late 2011 I got this horrible tattoo, it was winter and always wore long sleeves but just entered spring and there was when I realized I had made ??the worst decision in my life. I had never regretted anything but with this I made a mistake that literally marked my life... READ MORE

I currently have two tattoos that I really love, and one that I hate. The one I want removed was the first tattoo I ever got (and also the largest of the three). I was only 18 and like many 18 year olds, made an impulsive decision and have regretted it since then. I also imagined at the time... READ MORE

I've got the lower part of my arm in various colours, I'm a week after my first treatment on the first section. The laser used was the RevLite SI by Cynosure and for this first treatment the colours treated were Black (very dense) and red. The first treatment went well probably about 10x6 cm... READ MORE

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

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

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

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

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
