So I had 4 tattoos and my 5th one made me realize...
Ahhh blisters...FUN FUN FUN!...NOT!
A down and out kind of day:/
I remember being a little kid and going to the warren county fair and my dad was gonna get my a little spray on tattoo, not a Henna tattoo, a spray on! and I bugged out because I thought it was permanent. Now lets fast forward to the young age of 13. I was watching MTV's True Life: I regret a tattoo. I just remember watching and thinking I never want a tattoo, I dont want to be in these peoples shoes, that all must be horrible.
well, here I am, at the age of 19 with 5 tattoos that I am removing and hating every second of my life.
I wouldn't wish my greatest enemy to be in my position. This is one of the worst feelings to have and the worst situation because we have all done this to ourselves. Unless we were drugged, drunk, and/or forced, held down, or whatever and got the tattoo it was our dumb choice. And a tattoo that took an hour to a few hours to get now takes years to get rid of, and even then there's no guarantee for a full removal. Or you get put in my position where the tattoo you have the most has been scarred because of the artists mistake.
Honestly I am so thankful for my friends and for my mom and step dad. If not for my friends to keep me sane every day I probably wouldn't be here right now to tell you my story and keep you up to date. I know it seems harsh to say I'd end my life over tattoos but it's the depression that makes me feel this way.
And for my mom and step dad, you guys are simply amazing and I love you both to death because you two are helping me get my skin back to being ink free. It's because of you two also I am not going to end my life over this because as much as I need my mom she needs me and without me I know she would be a train wreck .
Today is one of those days where I could really use someone whose in the same boat as me to talk to. Feel free to comment all day on this, inbox me, or even email me at my personal email at ********com. please guys I really need your support:/
And the cycle continues...
I think I really need to go to a psychiatrist or someone that I can talk to that can help me through this. Because each and every day gets harder and harder. It's just at that point where I wish I don't wake up anymore:/.
But on a side note, I have a question for you guys, some of the blisters on my back popped, what should I do?! Should I be worried?! Should I not worry and just keep putting aquaphor on it?! Please somebody hell! And also does anyone here not cover their tattoo while its healing? I feel it'd be better to let it get air instead of keeping it covered in seram wrap for like 2 weeks
Treatment 1 and 2 of tattoos-day five
Oh and also I forgot I had a dermotologist appointment today about the scarring of my tattoo...shouldn't have gotten my tattoos lasered 5 days before I had this appointment, luckily my Insurence covers the appointment, but for now it's time to get in the shower and get ready for the day.
Oh and before I forget progress update of my tattoos....they are itching like crazy!!!! And the blisters have gone down and I'm putting hydrocortisone on where the blisters were and aquaphor on the rest. If upload pics but its hard to see the broken up lines and fading of them with my iPhone camera but ill try my best since none of you know what tattoos I have so ill do what I can...everyone enjoy your day!
Day 8 after treatment
Had my 2nd and 3rd treatment!
Day 6 after 2nd and third treatments
Anyone who has a colored tattoo, it will go away
Mike is very professional in what he does but at the same time he treats you not as a client but almost as a personal friend. Any time you have a worry or concern he's there and always picks up the phone. If you are in the greater Lehigh valley of Pennsylvania I highly recommend GO! Tattoo removal
