I had a lower sleeve done as a cover up for a couple small wrist tattoos. I was a little taken back by this tattoo, but it is roses and flowers with a butterfly and a bumble bee. Very much me. So after I got over the shock, I liked it very well. I had really wanted a bird in my tattoo... And thought I would add one on my other forearm, since space was limited on my other forearm and I was not sure I wanted to go up my arm (Now I wish I had!).
The tattoo artist was in town (He is from out of country) and so I rushed into the planning of my second tattoo.
So I chose a mockingbird with just greenery because our ideas were not jiving. A good sign to wait.
He did a beautiful job of doing the mockingbird. Excellent work, but I hate it. It looks horrible to me on my skin.
I have investigated the best removal and it looks like the PicoSure laser is it. I live in Central America, but we travel to Dallas, Texas often to see family, so I am hoping to get it treated there.
I obviously have to wait a couple months to let the initial tattoo heal, but in February, I will have my first treatment.
I am a little anxious about it because I really just want my arm back without any more tattoos. I have had one tattoo lasered off in the past, but because of my impatience or the poor removal of it, I had a cover up over it. I really do not want that again-- but if I have to, I will. Anything that is brighter and more cheery than this drab little bird.
So here we go.
Will report back after treatment one.
