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

Had my first laser session today after what feels like momths of waitin but rally has only been a little over minth.

I never thought i would be one to regret a tattoo and yet here I find myself regretting and hating myself for it. To start I have multiple tattoos, the others I love and am happy with. I have one tattoo on the upper portion of my right arm of a koi, water and a banner reading "cure SMA",... READ MORE

I'm not sure what my motivation was behind getting a tattoo. I think it must have been mostly due to the fact to the fact I thought they looked 'cool', if done well and in the right location. I opted to have something tattoo'd inside my bicep, as it felt like it wouldn't be too overstated, and... READ MORE

Removing a small 1.5in x 1in. neck tattoo I got approximately 18 years ago. It;s not very painful and no major scabbing or blistering yet, perhaps because its a small area. I didn't post pics of my first 4 treatments bc the results were very subtle. I'm currently on my 5th of 10 projected... READ MORE

So, just a bit about myself - I'm a nurse from Boston, and am not new to tattoos. I have five tattoos altogether - a beautiful outline of My Washington on my left arm, a feminine tree of life back piece, a tiny stethoscope on my chest, and a feather and arrow with Led Zeppelin lyrics on my wrist...

14 years ago, when I was 18, I got my second tattoo. I wish that the artist had asked me one question. That question being, "Are you going to love this location for the rest of your life?" In the last 14 years, I have gotten several more tattoos, I've even covered one that wasn't one of my... READ MORE

So I haven't started my treatment yet but I just wanted to get feedback from others going through this experience. Less than a month ago I got this whopping tattoo on my foot. My other artist I originally wanted work from had canceled on me, and being heart broken I really just wanted to walk... READ MORE

Hello everyone! I just had my first treatment with the Quanta Q + C after much research between the q switch and Pico sure. My technician has told me it will take 9 treatments for all 4 tattoos + or – 1-2 treatments. I felt very comfortable with Judi as she has tattoos that she is removing w... READ MORE

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

Hi everyone, I just got this tattoo of a winding river outline and immediately regretted it. I have truly been having a mental break, anxiety and depression and haven't been able to eat or sleep.

I don't hate the tattoo, but I have come to hate the negative attention I've experienced because of it and it does concern me how it might affect me as I get older and not being able to conceal it whatsoever. So I've decided to get it lasered at SK:N clinic in Manchester Uk. It's costing me... READ MORE

Hello! I am new to this website, although I have commented on a few stories that are similar to mine. I will start from the beginning...So years ago I got a tattoo on my hip to symbolize something that happened in my life and I have never once regretted it. The artist did an amazing job and I...

I recently posted this in a discussion, but was encouraged to start a review in hopes to generate more feedback/advice. Hey guys, I recently got a tattoo (my 3rd) on my wrist/forearm area and began to regret it as soon as I left the shop. The tattoo itself is very well done and looks great,... READ MORE

Hey guys I just went for my first session yesterday to start the removal process of my tattoo. I've had it for roughly 8 years. It's located on the top corner of my bikini area right below my hips. I was injected with lidocaine first which was the most painful part of it then felt absolutely... READ MORE

Hello, Getting tattoo and tattoo cover up removed. I made poor decisions with getting the tattoos and I don't feel that the tattoos fit me nor do I like the design style. I'm so over it! This procedure is new to me and when it's all done I'm hoping it's the last time I have to go through this... READ MORE
