19 Years Old Regrets 4th Tattoo - Winnipeg, MB

Hello my name is Breanne Martin, I am im desperate...

Hello my name is Breanne, I am im desperate need of support. I have a tattoo in front on my right shoulder blade it has many different colors including black, pink, white, yellow, blue, green and more! I am wondering if its worth entering the process of laser removal? I feel this tattoo is holding me back on life such as any future careers and other peoples opinions on me. I feel sad when i think about my tattoo. Are all these colors possible to come off? Is there anything I could start doing at home as my tattoo is only 4 weeks old. Please help! The closest tattoo removal clinic is an 8 hour drive away so this is gunna cost me a hell of a lot more money than anyone who lives close to a tattoo removal place. If anyone has any opinions, awnsers, and support please reply back thank you guys so much! you can see the tattoo on my profile pic

Mixed Feelings

So my tattoo removal consultation is in 3 days I am sure excited to make the 8 hour trip to meet with my specialist. I've been having such mixed feelings about my tattoo first I want to cover up the part I dont like (the key) and next I want to completely remove it. I've been really positive lately and it doesn't bother me as much as it used too, I've come to accept my tattoo and leave my options completely open. I also have a consultation at a very popular tattoo parlour for a potential cover-up. I am very hopeful and will keep everyone updated on my next decision on what to do about this mess!

Yeah I'm already starting to feel a lot better reading other peoples stories and understanding my options on laser removal or cover ups. I've had 3 tattoos prior to this and have had a great experience. However this was a new tattoo artist I have gone too. I understand and have been accepting my tattoo as the days go on, I'm young and still have plenty of options! I've been keeping my mind positive. I have my first consultation for laser removal in Winnipeg on the 28th and another consultation for a possible cover up the same day to explore and really understand my options. Thanks so much for the opinions and support I'll keep you guys updated :)

aloha Breanne, First up we all know what it's like to have ink regret. That's what has us here and has us supporting everyone else. Even if it's a beautiful tattoo, what you think of it is what is important. I would continue to search for a clinic near you, Winnipeg is a big place. I just did a google search and came up with three options for you. I can prvmsg you on these if you'd like. I'm originally from London, Ontario Canada and know that there are options. Canadians were in the forefront for laser eye surgery and we are marvels....but that aside. Ink regret in its beginning stages can be mentally devastating, I've been there, but time and support is a great healer. Consultations are great to give you hope and understanding of the process. Good luck and we are here for you. aloha...k

Hi Breanne welcome aboard. Firstly I think your tattoo is lovely but I can understand its personal preference . As far as colours go only Picosure could remove the blue and green and I think maybe pink & yellow. All Q switched lasers can treat black . White is best left alone as sometimes it can turn brown or black when lasered but white hardly stays noticeable in the body long with it being such a light colour. Unfortunately theres no home cure. Tattoo creams have such a bad rep for being a scam and I believe they are too. Try and leave it for another month to see how you adapt to it. What is it you don't like? Position, colour , design , size?

Hi, its the colours and design I dont enjoy having and I feel that it is holding me back on any future careers I may have. I shouldnt have spontaneously gotten a tattoo biggest mistake of my life

Hi Breanne. Tattoos are becoming more accpeted these days. I remember a few years back here in the UK if you had a tattoo on show you wasn't allowed in a nightclub or bar , now both men & women can have full sleeves and have no problem. As far as your career goes your tattoo can be hidden quite easily by a blouse / shirt so i wouldnt think you would have problems there. The colours in your tattoo may go with or against you. From what i know only a Picosure laser will treat the blue, green, yellow and any black with decent results but its not too good on red. You say your nearest place is 8 hours away . Do you know what laser they have?

I don't mean to sound rude, but im really trying to wrap my head around all of these new posts on here with people who get a tattoo then the next day want it removed and claim to not have understood what a tattoo was (i.e. permanent). id give it sometime if I were you. a tattoo is a modification to the body and could take time getting used to. and not to mention that laser removal is a long, costly, and painful process that shouldn't be taken lightly. I also really doubt that having a small shoulder tattoo is going to hold you back from any careers. good luck..

I didn't mean this as a personal attack or anything, since there seems to be an influx of people your age in the same predicament. im just curious as to where this mindset is coming from (media, etc.). laser isn't fun, and much like getting a tattoo, shouldn't be rushed into. the only way I myself could personally justify putting myself through all of this is if having the tattoo is causing me more pain then the laser would..

People feel that way the next day because they don't realize till after they get the tattoo that they don't like the tattoo anymore or it didn't turn out as planned . That's exactly what happened to me. I planned my tattoo and the placement for years. Was so excited about it that I couldn't sleep the day before.. then after I got it literally a few hours after the high of getting it quickly drifted away and the reality set in .I feel that's what happenes to most people that don't like their tattoo instantly

It's the same thing that happened to me. I dreamed about this tattoo for years, went to an incredibly famous and reputable studio, trusted an artist with a great portfolio, and then... And then, I hated it. It's the worst feeling. I haven't posted anything here but I began the process to try and remove the tattoo last week, and reading about others going through the same thing and understanding what is like has been incredibly helpful.
