Just got a huge mistake on my chest. I had an opportunity to get in with a very famous artist and because of that I got something I wasn't really feeling. About to start yag laser treatments because it has a lot of red and black. I'm also in the process of fading a half a sleeve in black ink. Seeing great results. I'm 5 sessions in of the alexandrite laser on my arm. I say about 3 more and I'll be ready for a cover up!!!

I hear you on mistakes, I too am going through tattoo regret. I also started my treatments, on my 2nd one, and in 2 weeks going for my 3rd treatment. I have not seen drastic results on with my 2nd treatment, some fading, but not great. The fading is mostly on the black, I also have purple/green/orange/yellow/white....all the horrible colors to treat, so I am in for a long haul. I am trying to remain positive, and I am prepared for an in complete removal and the possibility of needed a cover up. Good luck with your removal! And don't sweat the little things in life, appreciate the great things, no point in regret, although I no it's easy to say, and not as easy to do...so just try and stay focused on the positive.

How big is the tattoo? Do you know what laser they are using? One of my tattoos has faded drastically after 6 sessions

First 3 sessions went slow but after that the change is drastic. Sessions 5 and 6 were extremely painful. The alexandrite laser is really good on all inks except for red. Are you looking for a complete removal or a cover up? I'm doing a cover up. I think another 2 sessions and I'll be ready

Well, I would like a complete removal, as mine is already a cover up over a very light and small tattoo, but I know that I have to prepare that it might not all come out.....can you look at my tattoo and tell me what you thing..its the lotus and windbars, you should be able to just search me, if not i can send you my pic...tell me what you think,....I am really worried I won't have success. Do you know anyone else who has had a large tattoo removed with color? Thanks

Oh no, what a bummer. :( Do you mind me asking what you had put on your chest? Its totally fine if you don't want to say, of course, I'm just curious.

Its great you are seeing good results from the removal you are having done on your arm. Is it painful when its being done? Or afterwards?

It's a huge sacred heart done in mostly red and black. It looks pretty awesome jut not on me if that makes any sense. I had an opportunity to get in with a very famous artists and got something I wasn't really feeling from the very beggining. The treatment on my arm do hurt. Everytime i go they turn the laser up and it gets a little more intense

Yeah, that makes sense. If its not your style, its not your style. I'm sorry you are having to go through this though. :-/

I hope the treatment work well, and as quickly as possible for you.

Rather go through a year of laser therapy than look at this for the rest of my life
