Hey guys. I’ve been a lurker here for a while. Like pretty much everyone on this site, I was once young, dumb, 18, and ended up with a tattoo that I completely loathe. I don’t have many pictures because it’s not something I ever thought I’d want to show anyone, but I’ll put some up... READ MORE

I was quoted $540 total for the removal. The nurse thinks it should only take 3 sessions because my tattoo was already pretty faded. On 6/26/15 I had my first treatment. I can already see a huge difference. The nurse put on a numbing cream before using the laser and it took about 2 minutes. It... READ MORE

After shading was added to my tattoo, I hated it. So much in fact that I've been making sure to wear long sleeves for the year I've had it. I was so afraid of the costs and pain of removal that I've avoided it. I went for a consultation and couldn't believe the price. $1200 for the entire... READ MORE

My gynecologist offered to remove my tattoo that I had been regretting for about a year now, she had just purchased the new Picosure laser and said she had had great results. She was pretty convinced that she could have it completely removed in 4 sessions and offered a patient discount price.... READ MORE

I had a tattoo that was 2 lines of script, and for some reason decided it needed to be covered up. I had the first cover-up done in April of 2014. It was a feather. I tried to convince myself to like it, that it was pretty, etc. For some reason though, the artist used colors and shading that... READ MORE

I have a tattoo on my left tattoo that I don't want anymore so I decided to get it removed using the picosure tattoo removal process. I thought it would be an easy healing process however it's become not at all what I expected. The doctor sAys the blisters are normal. I'm just hoping I see major... READ MORE

Went for a consultation at second dermatologist for the removal of four tattoos, each approximtely 16-17 years old. One is on the inner section of my forearm (frog), and the other three are on my legs (2 on outside section of ankles, larger one on my calf). The dermatologist I met with does... READ MORE

I got this tattoo in August of 2014, and only months later, am beginning the removal process. It's kind of a long story, but in short, the numerals are incorrect (my fault), and due to spacing issues/blowouts in the linework, unfortunately it can't be corrected to my liking. I just started...

When I was young I got a lot of large, ugly tattoos as a way of coping with anxiety and other mental health issues. They're dense and colourful and will take years to remove, but I am trying to remain hopeful. They are on my leg, arm, and upper back. I started Picosure on my leg in late April... READ MORE

I've been contemplating a laser tattoo removal for my huge , obnoxious chest piece for some time now so when the picosure became available, I decided to give it a try. I got this tattoo at 18 and added the spiderweb along w cherry blossoms at 19. Needless to say, 8 years later I fell out of... READ MORE

Hi everyone, My names Rachel, I’m 21 and living in Sacramento. 3 years ago I impulsively got a tattoo in memory of my cousin and my uncle who had recently died. The tattoo was not done professionally and was very simple- Just an infinity symbol with the date of their passing below. I was... READ MORE

Hi, Just want to start of by saying the community spirit on this site is unbelievable. So I recently, impulsively, got a tattoo a new tattoo. It was done by someone I'm familiar with who has already tattooed me. To the main story. When having a recent 'session' he showed me (what looked at... READ MORE

Hello Everyone, I came here to share my experience and hope to find some support. I recently had a tattoo done after my grandma passed away. The tattoo is of a dove holding rosary beads. I have never had a tattoo before and I am not sure what came over me but I thought it would help me... READ MORE

I made this huge mistake starting from the age of 18 when i did the first tattoo on my left arm. Since the beginning i decide to start tattoing myself because i develop big stretch marks on my body especially on my arms, thus i thought that these would have been my only hope to make them...

Hello all! I have been reviewing this site for a while now.. And it makes me feel a little better about my tattoo regret. I got a tattoo on my leg that was poorly done, the artist claims to not remember doing it. It was such a bad experience and I am only 20 years old, I want to live my life... READ MORE

It's a familiar story- had a small tattoo and got a cover-up that I immediately hated. I think I'd like the tattoo on someone else, but it is way too much ink for my own leg. So now I am investing lots of money and effort into getting it lasered off. Sigh. In the meanwhile, I hide it from... READ MORE

I had a large star shaped tattoo on my lower back that I regretted getting the moment I left the studio almost 20 years ago. When I heard about the PicoSure laser and the reduced number of treatments it would take (vs. the previous technology), I decided to give it a go. I could not be more... READ MORE

I got my entire forearm outlined in black ink 3/28/15. This is my first and only tattoo. I have not gone back for shading. I am currently in a weird limbo place with my tattoo. It is not finished and prominently displayed, but I am scared to get more work done. After getting the ink, I... READ MORE
