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

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

At my place of work (a professional office), my tattoos have always been a bone of contention. I've always needed to wear long-sleeved shirts to keep them covered. It's been really inconvenient, especially in the heat of summer, or during pregnancy. I was approached recently, to see if the... READ MORE

I got this big piece when I was 18. You know that age where you was young and reckless. I decided to get this chinese lion from a guy that work at home. He charged me cheap so I went in for the outline and it seem like he wasn't into tattooing no more, he look very tired and it look like he... READ MORE

I have been on a long journey to remove my tattoo. I have done 10 Qswitched and 4 Picosure. I was told 15 sessions in the beginning when I got to 10. I thought this was never going to happen. Doing the 3 with Picosure I feel like there is hope this will end sometime. I usually never write a... READ MORE

When I was a little girl I got burned on my hand by the iron, the mark was always noticeable on my hand and when I got of aged I wanted to cover it with a tattoo. The tattoo artist I went to did a horrible job, so a few months later I got it recovered which I liked it better now, but I think... READ MORE

I'm want to remove it fully I have another appointment on March 15 hopefully the pic sure will get rid of this thing once and for all I feel like after my first one I'm getting scars already wish...

At my first appointment I got the colored hummingbird and nothing else. I thought it was pretty and was OK with showing it off. At my second appointment my artist talked me into a lacy background. I definitely wanted something unique and his other artwork is so cool I trusted him to do what he... READ MORE

Hello everyone! I'm a 19 year old girl who got an instantly regrettable ink on herself two weeks ago. It was not my first tattoo, so I didn't think I would regret it. But now I think of it as my worst mistake ever! Sucks big time. It's my third tattoo, but the first one without any meaning... READ MORE

Felt really good about it at first but was a little concerned about how big it actually was on my arm and then I... READ MORE
