Tattoo Removal of Four Tattoos - Kutztown, PA

I am in less than two months starting my first...

I am in less than two months starting my first treatment on my stomach/chest. I have 4 tattoos all large but the one on my arm is the biggest most detailed. I am hoping for complete removal on all my tattoos and its just a nerve wrecking situation that I have to deal with. I understand I have to patient threw out this whole process but the pain is gonna be ridiciolous on my stomach because ive already had a test patch. Im getting to treatment 6 and then I will taking a very long trip to whom I prefer to do my tattoo removal. Good things about my tattoo removal process- All black ink, two are done amatuerly and most of it shading. Bad news- Large tattoos, Painful spots, nervous that imma look stupid after I spend alot of money to take them off! This website site has connected me to many cool ppl that are in the same situations with me so i decided to share also.Another thing I see is people with little tattoos removed on the internet but nothing really big like mine so that gives me worry but i think imma just go with the treatment and put it in gods hand.

First session

First session wasn't too bad but my scabs are pink underneath I'm worried it won't go back to color or hypo pigmentation

Nothing is guaranteed with laser tattoo removal (please don't shoot the messenger though).  The uncertainity is because we are all different, different immune systems and the ink is questionable.  If the ink was regulated then the removal technicians would know exactly what they are dealing with.  I have one that the technician won't touch because he suspects it'll get darker instead of lighter and it's all because of the ink.  But there is hope with the new technology and techniques, so there is hope.  Good luck!  aloha...k

Yeah I know that's why it's a nervous process but I think my chest and stomach are gonna come out good because there amatuerly done and light and lots of shading! Now my back and arm piece I might not even touch bc there mostly lines and proffesionaly done

I think you'll do very well with removal.  There are a lot of people here that have had larger tattoos removed.  There is one guy who posted his review.  Over the past two years he's had over 15 sessions and it looks very faded.  You might only be able to do what you can do, financially speaking, but as I see it, I'd rather have a faded tattoo than the ink.  I'd rather have a slight shadow than the ink.  You could try numbing cream, many here have "sung" the praises of numbing cream.  Good luck, we're all in this with you.  aloha...k

Thanks for posting your review, you can ask them to also ice the area during treatment, that does help with pain. Can you post photos? B11

One thing you might consider is numbing cream, many people have sung the praises of numbing cream.  If you can, lidocaine shots are also good.  If none of this is available, one member here says she takes a stress doll to squeeze and focus on.  Anything to get through it.  It's tough, but we're all doing it also, misery loves company, strength is numbers...whatever gets you through it.  I focus on the end result, it's gonna be spectacular.  Good luck.

Well your amateur tattoos will come off nicely, that's the good thing about them, plus black and shading.  You'll have a positive result, I'm confident of that.  I've just completed session 8 on my professional, new, black tattoo.  It is looking like a very old tattoo with bald patches in there.  I'm hanging in there with the laser technician until the end of the year and then I'll consider flying over to O'ahu where they have the picosure.  It's tough to stay confident, positive and patient but it's necessary.  Stress doesn't solve anything.  Good luck, share photos and we'll get through this together.  aloha...k

Hey wats up.. Thank you for your comment and yeah I'm hoping the amatuer actually don't need 10-12 sessions that would be lovely. And I think imma order some numbing cream off amazon an I heard it creates like a barrier but i gotta buy some lol. I'm been following you too I just haven't posted anything an I feel like you will have great fading because it's already showing. And random how's Hawaii I always wanted to pick my shit up an just go out there lol??
