Okay, so I finally decided it was time to do this. I got my tattoo 8.5 years ago. I can't say exactly what I was thinking. I'm impulsive and I love pink floyd, so I told the artist I want a pink floyd tattoo but can't afford much so let's just start with a brick wall! Just draw whatever, I trust... READ MORE

So I got this tattoo when I was around 17. Hate it and have been wanting to remove it for so long. Well I'm getting married next year so now is a good time. I have had 3 sessions so far, 2 of them in Aurelia in Kilkenny, and recently found a tattoo place in My city Waterford that does removal,... READ MORE

Hey everyone- I'm new to this site. I'll start with my difficult journey this far. I was young blah blah blah and got a big chest piece done that I ended up hating immediately after getting it. I lived with it for 3 years before deciding I would attempt to have it covered. I did my research and... READ MORE

I'm new to writing blog posts to this site but I plan to keep this as a little online journal of my lazer removal journey.... Long story short got a coverup which I regret and am unhappy about. Around 5th of March was when I got the cover up, waited just under 2 months before going through... READ MORE

I got this tattoo on my forearm about a month ago that I am considering removing. I planned this tattoo for over a year, I researched the artist and went over the design with her multiple times...I had some small reservations the day of the tatooing, but I told myself they were just nerves and...

I love all my tattoos but 3 years ago I took the leap on doing my hands. Now wishing I stopped at the wrist. The tattoo is done beautifully but just sick of all the extra attention I get. Even though it's mostly positive. Iv had 2 laser treatments so far. It is a draining experience. Hand gets... READ MORE

I had very sparse eyebrow hair. Went to a bad tech. Who tattooed them WAY too high! I have tried saline with little result. Test spot piko laser which darkened. And now I'm trying acid removal. I'm posting this to help anyone in need. The acid was applied to open skin 65% self neutralizing... READ MORE

I've had a cross tattoo on my upper back for 8-9 years now. For the last 5 years I've wanted it removed. My beliefs have changed and because of that, I am very embarrassed to have such a tattoo on myself. I am 27, female, newly engaged, and do not want this shown on my wedding day Side note,...

Over a month ago, I got this tattoo on my wrist. I have contemplated getting this specific tattoo for over a year, and it is my own design. I have a major love for reading and the semi colon was meant to show my story never ends. It was meant to be something that inspired me everyday. Instead,... READ MORE

I'm strongly considering getting a Picosure laser tattoo removal. I have a few tattoos but I just feel like the artwork wasn't very well done on this particular one. I want to have it covered up but I spoke with a tattoo artist who advised lightening it first with laser removal. I did my... READ MORE

I am at the dermatologist office right now awaiting a consult for a tattoo to be removed that I just received on Saturday. I cannot say enough about how disgusted, depressed, humiliated I feel right now. I had an existing tree on my arm that I just wanted to have some color added to. Went to the... READ MORE

I had my first removal session 2 days ago, it was painful but bareable for the short period the treatment lasted. It was initially a little uncomfortable, but it calmed down after a few hours and I've had no problems with it since so far. It's currently a little scabby, a bit like when I had the... READ MORE

For the past three years or I kicked around the idea of getting a tattoo. One that would be a permanent reminder of positives and negatives in my life. Ive struggled in the past with spiraling negative thoughts and wanted to get a tattoo that had two sides to it. Positive and negative. I chose... READ MORE

Young, influential and out to impress I was fuelled by patriotism to get a tattoo of the Southern Cross. I already had an existing panther tattoo (god knows why, I don't even like cats!) and was initially going to use the Southern Cross to cover this. Following a pattern of poor decision making...

Hello. I'm 19 years old and I've done what I always wanted - I got a tattoo. I was thinking about it for two years and I really THOUGHT I wanted it. But ever since I got it I've been depressed. Things I haven't considered previously are coming to my mind and I feel like I'll fall apart. I feel... READ MORE

So I got this hideous tattoo when I was 17.. Smh. My first mistake!! Anyhow I have been attempting to have it removed at a local med spa but I am not convinced that the laser is working. I previously had a tattoo removed on my arm at another facility but it is far away so rather than go back to... READ MORE

I got this tattoo in May 2015 while traveling Australia. When I first got it I loved it. Now that I am home and see the reflection of it in the mirror everyday, I am starting to freak out about it. I find it way to big and dark. I have always gone for a softer more feminine tattoo in the past. I... READ MORE

I started my tattoo removal in November of 2013. I have had four treatments with the Q-Switched Yag in Nanaimo, BC and have my first Picosure appointment scheduled for today in Victoria, BC, Canada. I have experienced a fair amount of fading with the Q-switched and am overall happy with the... READ MORE
