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

I'm not sure if others have gone through this, but I felt instant regret and shock the same night I had gotten my tattoo done. I did not rush into it. I spend over 4 years researching and thinking about it. The process was simple and nearly painless. I was so thankful that the process was over.... READ MORE

Pico-sure laser removal had been recommended because of the color intense tattoo wanted removed. Tattoo was in the inside forearm of my dominant hand. 1. Attempted to discuss pain management prior to the procedure and the Dr. carelessly chuckled "Of all the questions I've been asked, none has... READ MORE

As a lot like other people, I've came to regret my first tattoos. I got them done around 16 years ago when I was travelling and living in Australia. For the first 5-8 years I really liked them but as the years rolled on I started to cover them up more with jumpers and so forth. It's at the point... READ MORE

Hi, I got a tattoo a few weeks ago and the idea of having it didn't worry me bc I was going to have it hidden from my parents anyway and the thought of having roses didn't bother me either. But,I wish I could've gone back in time researching more of these forums and the long pain and process of... READ MORE

So it's taken me 6 years of pretty much hiding my arm every time I go out to finally get myself to book this appointment I've always wanted! I had the patch test done today with the picosure laser and it actually went really well! No pain! If anything it felt nice? It's blistering up quite a bit... READ MORE

On popular request, here is my tattoo laser review :) The removal was done several years ago during 2012 so the details are a bit blurry but thanks to Google calendar I was able to dig out that I did either 8 or 9 sessions with one month in between. The tattoo was two paw marks with red in the... READ MORE

I feel like we already know each other. I had a review before, but someone I know from work was talking about realself and I got sketched and removed all my pics and closed my account. They weren't talking about tattoo removal, but I still don't feel like talking to anyone at work about it ever.... READ MORE

I have a chest tatoo of the football team Manchester United. I got this done approx. 2 years ago. I booked myself in for tatoo removal at a clinic in Plymouth in England recently and my first session was on December 12th. I had the colour and the black outlining treated and it cost me £60....

At 18 my best friend wanted to get a tattoo. She choose a combination of our initials and made the design herself. Via poor judgment I ended up with the exact same tattoo on just a little above and to the right of my pubis. I have regretted it deeply and been highly embarrassed anytime another... READ MORE

Had several mistakes that I acquired as the result of being a rebellious teenager and thinking I was sooooo cool being the only chick in high school with a tattoo, then getting a few more, finally stopping at age 19. My tattoos are all small and inconspicuous, however, I still wanted them gone.... READ MORE

Hello everybody. I will not write the same story about getting and regreting new tattoo...everybody know that :) I have 8 months old tattoo on thigh, only black vegan ink. I was on the patch test 2 weeks ago. My Q is: is my skin after laser tattoo removal damage? (You can see different color of... READ MORE

So I got a tattoo roughly 6 months ago, it wasn't an impulse decision I've always wanted to get some ink. I thought about it and it's meaning (for my twin) for some time.. The second I got tatted I was completely depressed, couldn't eat, sleep,etc.... Stop going to the gym.... The placement was... READ MORE

I went in for my consultation today for the pico laser today. The lady in the office was really nice and very informative shes going to call me tomorrow to see if I want to go ahead with the appointment on Thursday . She said it would cost 350$ to 400$ per session. I'm really nervous but so... READ MORE

I had a job offer and was denied due to my tattoo located on my finger. Luckily the employer have me the opportunity to remove it and still have the job offer available. So my search in finding the best tattoo removal procedure began. After a couple different consultations with other doctors I... READ MORE

This being my 4th tattoo, I wasn't thinking I would have such dislike for it. To be honest after each of my tattoos I love them immediately, but then a few days later have a bit of a freak out. This weird feeling of something being on you that wont come off. Normally I spend months and months... READ MORE

I got this tattoo an a total whim by a compete amateur about 3 years ago. A friend of mine was getting one and I wanted one too, first thing that came to mind was my zodiac sign (Taurus) ( I know SO cliche and lame! UGH! I have hated it since the moment I saw it. It's poorly done, and looks like... READ MORE

I'm 37, I have two tattoos and hate them both. Left ankle I got a peace sign with a rose at age 16; had it redone for more color at age 20. For at least 10 years it's been a faded blob. Right ankle I got a dolphin at age 18. I've disliked them for some time, and even tried to remove the peace... READ MORE

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. I'm about to start a new corporate role and now I won't be able to wear any sleeveless tops to work. The artist said she didn't use any black at all but just grey wash.... READ MORE

Hi guys, just wondering what your thoughts/experiences are with covering a tattoo with a skin tone ink? I know you will never match a skin tone perfectly, but I have quite a large tattoo on the top half of my stomach and it's not really responding to laser treatment and I want it gone. It's...
