Hello, I got a watercolour tree on my left arm two month ago. At first I liked how it turned out. A few days later I was not so sure about it anymore. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. I fell uncomfortable to show it around (which is impossible in summer). I wanted my lettering to be... 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 wanted to share my experience to help others that might be in the same situation, with a huge regret and considering laser tat removal. Six months ago, I went & got a tattoo that was supposed to be a dedication of my love for my grandfather, the man who raised me and taught me everything I... READ MORE

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

After getting a tattoo on a whim at the age of 18 for no reason other than 'all my friends had them', I have regretted it the following 9 years. I toyed with the idea for removal for a couple of years before finally taking the plunge when someone recommended a local surgeon that they had good... READ MORE

I need to start by saying this site and your posts have both helped me tremendously, I am glad to find out that I am not alone. I have a few tattoos and I love them all. I have always wanted an arm sleeve done and have spent quite a while drawing up all of the pieces to complete my arm. I had... READ MORE

I have been wanting a tattoo for years. My partner wasn't so thrilled at the idea when I announced I had an appointment to finally get one. It isn't a decision that was spontaneous. It was the result of a long reflection and I put a lot of time in it, and choosing the place, motif and artist.... READ MORE

I have a chest tatoo of the football team Manchester United. I got this done approx. 2 years ago. I booked myself in for tatoo removal at a clinic in Plymouth in England recently and my first session was on December 12th. I had the colour and the black outlining treated and it cost me £60....

Hey all, I just discovered this site, so I'm a lot farther along in my treatment than some folks here. I've experienced many of the same emotions you all write about: depression, anxiety, sensing that people are judging my bad tattoo, even people who should be open-minded about that sort of...

I'm 37, I have two tattoos and hate them both. Left ankle I got a peace sign with a rose at age 16; had it redone for more color at age 20. For at least 10 years it's been a faded blob. Right ankle I got a dolphin at age 18. I've disliked them for some time, and even tried to remove the peace... READ MORE

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

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'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 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

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
