Considering Removal on Very New Tattoos - black outline / thick black lines - New York, NY

My tattoos are barely a month old. I never thought I'd be here, so I'll say going into this that I know absolutely nothing about tattoo removal...I'm here to research and learn about it before diving in (like I did with my tattoos, lol).

20yr Old Ankle Wrap Tattoo Removed by Picosure Laser - Peachtree City, GA

I am hoping to update this review as the laser treatments go on. Had first laser treatment 11 days ago, lower leg is still swollen. On ankle wraps they can only do one side at a time due to swelling and safety issues, so I had the inner portion done. I was scheduled for the other side on... READ MORE

Costs: $350/ Tx Estimated that it will be fully removed in 5-7 (I don't quite believe that -- thinking more on the 10 tx side because some parts are very dense) Procedure 1: Was NOT painful at all , which was weird to me because I have a low pain threshold. Numbing cream was applied for 45... READ MORE

5 Sessions of Q Switched and Zero Results - Italy, IT

If you have a large tattoo that you want to get rid of completely, I agree laser is your best choice.
