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.

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.

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.

I have a large, upper armband with mutli-colored ink (lots of greens & blues) which has remained vibrant for 20+ years that I have lived with this tattoo.

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.

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

Happy I Persevered with Removal!

I had an old Mexican dragon on my right shoulder that had become blurred and faded. It was also not me anymore but a post punk tribal phase that meant something to me when I was 25 but not the person I am now. I embarked on laser treatment and could not believe the pain. I almost quit but I... READ MORE

Cover Up Tattoo That I Also Hate :(

Hi. I got a tattoo of a bunch of different flowers and a quote next to it. The quote was wonky and the font messed up so I decided to get it lasered. Which caused my skin to go bright pink for months and I panicked so much so got it covered with another tattoo. I also started to realise that I... READ MORE

Final Stages of Inner Bicep Tattoo Removal

I'm not sure what my motivation was behind getting a tattoo. I think it must have been mostly due to the fact to the fact I thought they looked 'cool', if done well and in the right location. I opted to have something tattoo'd inside my bicep, as it felt like it wouldn't be too overstated, and... READ MORE
