Tattoo Fade for Cover Up

About 2 and a half years ago I started my half sleeve. From the get go it was a nightmare. The work was awful and I had an infection (odor, oozing, huge scabs). I followed up with a new artist at a different shop to continue the work; he made things worse. Finally, I found someone who does... READ MORE

I'm Embarrassed to go Swimming with my Sons

I got the two tattoos pictured below about 15 years ago. The Inca one on my back is a cover up for a shoddy Celtic Band I had done. The detail on the Inca one is great but on its own it looks silly, and I'm not going to get a whole shoulder/sleeve done as I want them both off. I've had my first... READ MORE

When Two Tribals Go - United Kingdom, GB

Wanted to get rid of the ankle tribal tat, which was a cover up (should have gone for laser at that point!), and also decided the one on my back could take a hike too. Session 1 Jan 2013. Painful but can cope with it. Redness on first night and some itching. Felt it 'stop working' about a week... READ MORE

I am so ashamed of this tattoo and it is making me so depressed.

I don’t even know where to begin… It’s such a long story. I’m a 26 year old teacher and I had 18 tattoos already prior to getting this one. I have them all over my legs, on my feet, one on my wrist and a large one on my shoulder blade. I loved the way shoulder tattoos looked and decided... READ MORE

Tattoo Gone After Nearly 40 Years of Trying - New Brunswick, NB

Ok, my story is: at around 14 or 15 years old (back in the late 70's) I got a tattoo on my upper arm. It was of a pot leaf as I smoked and was quite certain (as all teens are!) that I'd be smoking forever. Well, that lasted about 3 years. Then at 20 I had my son and decided from then on I didn't...
