I got this tattoo when I was 17. I don't have a huge regret story, it's just that I didn't think well enough about the placement and that for work purposes I now have to get it removed. I will be going through (hopefully) a full removal. At the time of starting this post I have had 2 session,... READ MORE

2.5 months ago I got a cover up on my left arm/shoulder. My previous tattoo was embarrassing, a superman symbol with the letter R for my first name. I got it when I was 18, my older brother got a bunch of tattoos so I followed him. This current tattoo is HUGE and all colors... like all colors.... READ MORE

After an enormous amount of research and countless consultations, I am beginning my Picosure treatment with the Laser & Skin Surgery Center in Manhattan. I will be using anesthetic, so I will not be able to treat both tattoos at once (meaning both during one visit). I will instead be treating... READ MORE

About 6 weeks ago (on January 10th), I foolishly got a tattoo of a watercolor rose (hence the username) on my left shoulder blade. I wanted a little tiny baby rose, but it quickly became much more as I let myself be influenced by the artist's opinion. I plan to post a picture whenever I get the... READ MORE

Today i had my first picosure-session on my shin, calf and femoral. i have a multicolored tattoo with lots of colors like yellow, red, pink, blue, green, maroon, purple and black. the session went over 1,5 hours. the pain was bearable. not as painful as getting the tattoo done. i did not use any...

I have several tattoos, all of which came from a very different time in my life. I hated a large one on a back but figured tattoo removal would be too costly, so I added to it to try and make it "pretty". Good intentions, but I hated it even more the bigger it got!!! I started doing research... READ MORE

Hi everyone! This site has been a great resource for support and after I decided to get rid of my tattoos (in total I have five - two small ones on my wrists and three larger ones: back/neck, right upper arm and chest). Most of them are quite old, the "newest" one on my chest was done 8 years... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I have been following this forum for around 4 months and would like to share my experience on the procedure. I am currently having picosure tattoo removal with wayne at the circle London...reason being I had a cover up that went wrong. where the artist did not cover up the bottom... READ MORE

Hello to those who are reading! So how do I start this, I got a "Hakuna Matata" tattoo on my right wrist because I was very very stupid at the time. It was done in october of 2013, and not even a month later I regretted it. I regret it so much that seeing it makes me upset! Every. Single. Time... READ MORE

I had a new tattoo done in 2011 which I instantly regretted - it was a huge forget me not on my stomach in bright blue with some white/yellow and white in it. I also had a very old tattoo that I had done in 1997 which is all dark blue. I'd already had laser treatment x 2 sessions on the one on... READ MORE

I'm in the process having this butterfly tattoo -- one of several I'm having removed -- lasered by Wayne at the Reset Room in Soho. The process has been exceptionally easy; I've had no blistering, and very quick healing. As you'll see from the photos, the fading is dramatic. The second photo was... READ MORE

I have chest piece around 20 inches I'm removing. I start Saturday and I'm super nervous, I'm worried it won't all come off and I'll be stuck with faded ink. I really haven't see many tattoos completely removed. They said 5 treatments but we'll see how it goes it doesn't seem like anyone has had... READ MORE

I got tattoos around both elbows 11 years ago- I was 20 years old. Six years ago, when laser surgery was almost non-existant, I mistakingly went to some 'hole in the wall, we can remove those tattoo's' clinic and had 3 treatments performed on my left arm. This left disgusting scarring around... READ MORE

I got my first tattoo on my wrist when I was 18. It didn't turn out that great so after a few years I had it covered up with a new tattoo (which had to be bigger and darker). Its now been a few more years and I can see my previous tattoo showing through. It really annoys me and being on... READ MORE

I'm getting married very soon and I wanted the giant mistake between my shoulder blades as faded as possible before my strut down the aisle. My tattoo is a 6 square inch Celtic knot with heavy black outlines and blue, green, and white shading. I was drawn to seek out the PicoSure laser because... READ MORE

I have been following these blogs for about a year. I've learned more about this procedure from this community than from any online research or doctor consultations. So, I guess it is time to share my story. I got my tattoo when I was 18. I thought it was a good idea. It was a 2" dove with... READ MORE

This summer I volunteered in an orphanage in south africa. I already have a back tattoo I love so before I even went i'd planned on getting a commemorative tattoo. Anyways when I came back one of my friends who is a tattoo artist (which I havent spoken to since because I dont have the heart to... READ MORE

I love this site, reading all the reviews about the picosure helped me with my decision to try and get this removed. I am concerned with getting rid of the orange and yellow which I've read is hard to remove with the laser. I know the purple and blue will respond really well. I had my first... READ MORE

I have a 5year old, dense cover up (orig is 10yrs) on my hip/stomach. It has been treated with TCA and the Medlite C6 twice two years ago. I didnt follow up with any more treatment becaused i moved back to the USA and honestly was too scared of the pain. I saw mostly fading of the black and dark... READ MORE
