i have two tattoos that i am removing at Tattoo Removal Laser Clinic. The tattoo on my forearm is a full body portrait of Elvis (skin tone w/metallic, blue, red and black. size of my hand) and the tattoo on my chest is three lines of lyrics from the song Hotel California by the Eagles (black, covering 3/4 chest).
I got both these tattoos on a whim the same weekend. Immediately after, i regreted them and began to realize the permanent damage i had done, or so i thought. I started doing on line research and came across Michael and Patricia's Tattoo Laser Removal facility. I was in a rush to start the process because not only did the quality of the tattoos come out bad but the look of them detracted from myself.
I've had trouble feeling confident in the clothes i wear with them showing because they don't go with the style I'm wearing and they take attention away from everything else about me. The chest tattoo was so deep the ink was risen. I started treatments six months after getting the tattoos. I've had 5 treatments done so far and i am making progress, which is why i felt this was a good time to share a review.
The chest tattoo is no longer risen, the ink has lightened to a softer black and individual letters have began to break. The face in the Elvis tattoo is gone and overall it has faded to the point where people don't believe it's a real tattoo. The treatment itself is comfortable and Patricia makes you feel at ease (pillows under your feet, squeeze ball, fragrance, blanket, and her soft tone). The actual pain level is similar to that of getting a tattoo (I highly recommend the numbing creme, it helps). While i get the treatment done, i remind myself I'm one step closer. I actually look forward to each new session.
If you want the tattoos gone, you have the option to do so it just takes patience. It will take multiple treatments spread out months in between to allow your body to do the healing. I keep my eye on the ultimate prize of eventually having the tattoos gone for the rest of my life, so i'm commited to spending a couple years removing them. I am so incredibly grateful for Patricia and Michael because they are the link between me and my new life. I am extremely excited to have these tattoos gone. I will feel so free when they are off my skin and be able to express myself much more true than what these tattoos show.
Patricia and Michael are very professional and the facility is very clean. They go above and beyond to prepare you of what to expect and give you all the aftercare supplies you will need. I absolutely 100% love Tattoo Removal Laser Clinic and cannot say enough how thankful i am for their service. At times i feel as though they are the only ones that understand what i am going through so i'm glad i found them. I will write another review when the treatments are over! Good luck to those that have a regrettable tattoo and i hope that you find my experience helpful, because i know how hard it can be.
