Hi everyone, I have been looking at this site since September this year because the stories have provided me much needed comfort knowing that I am not the only person to experience regret from having a tattoo done. Also seeing peoples removals have given me some positive thoughts in that... READ MORE

I have been coming to SOMA to have a tatoo removed from my abdomen. After the first treatment, the tatoo was barely visible. I just went back for the second treatment and can't wait to see it once it heals. I have been extremely happy with this doctor. I have even consulted with him about other... READ MORE

2 months ago I have a cover up of a tattoo which originally had my daughters name on it. The problem was I got the original while on holiday and the tattooist did a horrible job and so when I got back to Tokyo, I got my usual tatooist to re-write the name on a different part of my bad and to...

I'm a very conservative individual and I have made a horrible mistake that is going to effect my entire family. I recently took my tattoo studio to a convention and left my boyfriend to with our other artist at the shop. I was planning on leaving early to come home and was headed out and... READ MORE

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. It was meant to be a simple little symmetrical black tattoo that was immediately a disaster. The... READ MORE

I have a total of four tattoos, I really love my owl on my chest and my Phoenix on my arm but I asked my artist to give me a wolf tattoo and am so disappointed with the outcome. I love the other tattoos he did so I decided to go with his design but deeply regret it because the design I wanted... READ MORE

I've got a heavy black linework sleeve of geometric and floral designs, and a large portion of it (the whole upper half) I've decided has to be faded to be properly covered up with a better tattoo. Mulling my decision, and being driven sometimes to some seriously dark mental places - I've lurked... READ MORE

I got this tattoo as soon as I turned 18 because I thought I was going to be totally badass and now I'm not sure if it's something I want on me forever. I was hoping I could get other people's results and what lasers they used and just some opinions. It's almost 2 years old. I want to keep the... READ MORE

So I have been waiting a few years for a tattoo, and I finally got it done and I am so unhappy with it and just want to get rid of it. I only had this done in September so I understand I need to wait till January to start laser removal. I don't know whether to try a picolaser or stick to a... READ MORE

I recently (Feb 2015) had the tatt2away procedure done on my arm to remove my tattoo. I've only had 50% of the tattoo removed. I'm left with a horrible scar (major regret) I now don't want to get the rest of the tattoo removed via tatt2away due to the awful scarring. Any suggestions please? I'm... READ MORE

I got a tattoo last week .. unfortunately as many who have read here, the result was not as expected, I regret it every day, it's not a horrible tattoo, in fact I like, but is too large and I would like to erase part of it. I have been through every one of the states that I had read, regret,... 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

Hi everybody, I'm Louise from Paris, France, and thanks to Frenchmilitary, I got to know this website. I'm 23 and already around 15 tattoos that I love. But the last one I got was a huge mistake! It was done exactly one year ago (january the 4th 2014) and I tried to cover up some parts of it... READ MORE

Hi all, About 7 years ago I got a small tattoo as a sudden decision on my right ankle. I didn't like it, so after many years I got it covered up. Cover up was much larger than I had anticipated. Now I have a bigger, brighter colorful tattoo that I don't like and I see it whenever I wear shorts,... READ MORE

I'm a 31 year old and had always toyed with the idea of tattoos my whole, adolescent life, so after a trip to Hawaii I took the plunge and got a tattoo in my hone country, Australia. My first tattoo was of a pineapple that had the word Aloha written underneath. Spurred by the rush of the 1st... READ MORE

Hello all of you! I have been reading all your posts about your tattoo removal processes and I decided to give it a try myself. I have a wrist tattoo which is blue, green and yellow and of course black. The rose is not bad looking I just really hate having anything on my skin, especially in... READ MORE

I live in a place where hand tattooes are culturally acceptable if not expected. I began the tattoo journey years ago with the help of a trusted artist. I always wanted to add to the tattoo, it was stunning and so unique. I went back to the trusted artist, we discussed for an extensive amount of... READ MORE
