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...

Looking for opinions for cover up - deep ink

Hello everyone. I've been reading these reviews like a madman to decide what path to take to improve my current tattoo situation. I currently have one piece on my forearm which is all black and I recently attempted to do touch ups and extend it however I'm not convinced I'll be able to go where... READ MORE

Picosure and Enlighten - Cape Girardeau, MO

Ok, so shortly after I turned 19 in 2000, I decided to get a tattoo. For whatever reason, I chose a Celtic design that appealed to me at the time. The tattoo was supposed to have black outlines and then color added later on. I liked it well enough without the color, so I never went back for... READ MORE

I am at the dermatologist office right now awaiting a consult for a tattoo to be removed that I just received on Saturday.

Laser Tattoo Removal of Five Small Tattoos

I finally decided to remove my tattoos. I'm very pleased that I chose to go forth with treatments. I have had five so far and I have three or four more to go. I wait a minimum of 8 weeks in between appointments. I see a drastic change. Although, as seen in photos it's normal for them to look... READ MORE

Tattoo Removal on Wrist

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...

Tattoo excision - options

I am looking for views in relation to excising this tattoo. I have undergone laser - however I am unable to live with it. I do need it to be removed.

Hello everyone. I am currently in my first year of college.

College Junior - New York, NY

Well this tattoo has a good message but it's too visible and I can see myself down the road regretting it so why not start now asap!! Due the bad quality of the tattoo and very thin ink I hope this tattoo goes in 3 treatments or less but the doctor said 15 plus let's see. Here is the test zap... READ MORE

The Tattoo is Beautiful but I Feel Like my Leg is Ruined

I got this tattoo about six months ago. It is my tenth tattoo and my second that is this large. I have always loved tattoos and was planning on getting full sleeves, my entire back done, etc. But since I got this tattoo I no longer want any other ones. The tattoo is gorgeous and I thought about... READ MORE

I Hate the Coverup Too

It's kind of hard for me to open up about this but I'm 21 and I have a tattoo that I desperately want to get rid of. I hate looking at it, it makes me feel so hideous. My anxiety worsens just thinking about it and my confidence is a 0. It started off as a black and white fox. I thought it looked... READ MORE

Cover Up Tattoo Removal. Phoenix, AZ

I wanted a simple symbol on my upper arm, nothing else. The line work was one of the easiest things. But I was unsatisfied when I found the lines were crooked and non consistent. I went in for a coverup. The artist chose a rose, and it sounded great but the work didn't go as well as I thought it... READ MORE

Cover-up That Got Way Too Big! - Fargo, ND

My tattoo started out with just the owl in the center. About a year and a half ago, I decided for some reason that I wanted to add a background to the owl. I did some research and went to a reputable tattoo place in my area. Mistake #1 - I walked in the tattoo shop knowing which artist I... READ MORE

Beginning Laser Tattoo Removal (Dublin, Ireland)

Hi all, a lot of stories on here about laser tattoo removal have inspired me to begin the process as well as record it here. I got my little wrist tattoo done in Dec 2010 as far as I can remember.

Tattoo removal journey with white ink - Sydney, AU

I had a tattoo done on my shoulder yesterday and as soon as it was done, I regretted it. I'm not sure why i rushed into it.

Tattoo Cover Up Regret - Düsseldorf, DE

Hi, 1 month ago I got this cover up of a smaller already faded tribal and since then my mood got worse every day.
