Wanted to get rid of the ankle tribal tat, which was a cover up (should have gone for laser at that point!), and also decided the one on my back could take a hike too. Session 1 Jan 2013. Painful but can cope with it. Redness on first night and some itching. Felt it 'stop working' about a week... 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 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

I Feel it's important to share my experience with tattoo laser removal to help others. My tattoo is 6x12 upper back. It is a cover up, however the tattoo before was very small light circles down my spine , the majority of the tattoo being removed is the cover up. I have had 1 treatment Sept 7... READ MORE

I'm actually having my tattoo removed from my neck because I'm looking into joining the military! I've had my first session on May 9 2014!!! I was really skeptical about it at first because it was kinda pricey other then going with the original Q laser witch would have takin over 15 sessions an... 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
