Did my eyeliner tattoo long ago when I was 18 for stupid reason (such a noob) lol I paid 6 treatments...... READ MORE

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

Hey all. My names Jessy. I'm 27 from The UK!!! I plan to discuss and document my tattoo removal and reasons for doing so at some point. But for now, I'm curious about something. I had my first laser session today. (Excruciating but I can't wait to see results.) Anyways. I understand that... 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

Hi All, I have spent most of today in a state of panic and shock at what I have done to myself. I have two small tattoos on each wrist and I love those. But yesterday, I decided to go for something I had been dreaming of for years - a crown and rose. I knew something was wrong when I saw the... READ MORE

I had two small (2-4in) tattoos that I no longer wanted. I got them at age 19 and 21 and they simply didn't "represent" me anymore, nor did they hold the same significance they once did. I searched and searched online and saw such mixed reviews for laser tattoo removal. Some people had total... READ MORE

I got this horrid bamboo tattoo in Thailand. I think he was as drunk as I was. I just did second treatment tonight with q-switch. It didn't even blister of hurt much the first time. This time since turning up the level of bled just a bit. I will post pic again once it heals. I had not used... READ MORE

I originally got a small "tramp stamp" my sophomore year of college when my roommates and myself played hookey from school and somehow ended up at a scummy tattoo parlor. The artist's work was very poor to say the least and my small tattoo was etched so deep it is basically very thick scar... READ MORE

So I got my first tattoo three years ago after I lost a family member who I was very close to. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it might, so I decided to go ahead and get two more - some lettering on my wrist, and a line drawing on my back. Big mistake. The artist was just terrible. The...

I began this process January 2014 and foresee it taking about 2.5 to 3 years to achieve complete removal which is my goal. I have had much smaller all black tattoos removed from both of my inner wrists and achieved complete removal after about 20 sessions or so ( I lost count). The things I... READ MORE

I am so depressed and angry. So many good things are happening in my life now, and I thought a tattoo would complement my vibrant life, but it has completely depressed me. I'm not eating or sleeping and I'm dreading getting undressed to see my new tattoo. The artist did a very good job but it's... READ MORE

I have been interested in joining the military for a while now and a few weeks ago I got my sign that I needed to affirm my decision to do it. There is only this tattoo standing in my way. After some research I found that the Enlighten Laser by Cutera is one of the newest and most efficient ways... 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 got this tattoo at the age of 20 for my daughter's father. We broke up about 6 months later. I decided at the age of 34 I was time to get it removed, it caused me to have to search for wide wedding bands with my current love. It is a very painful but effective procedure, it takes multiple...

Hi so I've been checking this site everyday since I got my tattoo and now I feel like I should share my story. It doesn't have a lot of meaning, except for the the fact that it represents my love for the beach and the ocean and my love for a particular genre of music. I thought that by getting... 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 am 10 months into laser treatments every 6 weeks of a tattoo on my hip that has got to go. At the very least I need to get it to a stage where it is light enough to cover up. Ideally, I would like it to disappear entirely, but I am beginning to think that that might not happen. The treatments... READ MORE
