I have considered laser tattoo removal for a while. My hesitation was not the cost or the pain, it was that even though I don't want that tattoo or any tattoo, the quality of it was pretty good, so it at least had that going for it. I did not want to have a blurry half removed tattoo with persistent color remaining. I read a lot about it and heard that some newer lasers can remove pretty much all colors. So when I found a 3 treatments for $50 special online, I decided to go for it. Even assuming it would be a laser that only removed certain colors, I thought it would be a good start for an extremely cheap price.
It hurt A LOT. It is a lot more painful than laser hair removal. I think there has been significant fading of the black outlining. The colors may have faded but its hard to tell.
