I had a little teeny tiny black butterfly tattoo on my wrist that I got in someone's garage when I was 16 that I didn't like very much and always associated with a not-so-great time period of my life so I decided to get it covered up. (Unfortunately I don't have a photo of this tattoo but it was... READ MORE

I just finished the lower half of my sleeve. A tattoo I really wanted but ended up not liking the end result. To the point where I been getting lots of anxiety. I was wondering if I should wait on removing the tattoo because the in is super fresh, any advice that I can get will be greatly... READ MORE

So I just recently got this tattoo on my right forearm and I'm regretting it. I think it looks like a really bad tattoo. I don't like the line work I think it's to big and it just looks bad. Ever since I got this I have felt really depressed and I just want it off my arm. I don't know what made... READ MORE

Hello realselfers!! I've stalked this site for about a year now and my personal frustration has led me to finally reach out to you all. I started my treatments 11 months ago!!!! I've gone religiously (19 times to be exact) and $2000 smack-a-Roos later it's still not completely GONE! I'm... READ MORE

Got a tattoo a few months ago, and haven't been happy about the placement since day 1. I even had the stencil places a few different places because I was unsure, but I didn't listen to my gut and went along with the original suggestion of tattoo artist and my friend. This tattoo is on the front... READ MORE

So, I thought it would be a fab idea to get my partners name on my wrist with a cute butterfly, as we are getting married in January so not just a quick fling! Problem is, I didn't put enough thought into the design and I let the tattooist rush me into it..... Now, I want it gone. Not because... 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

My name is April. I’m 30 years old. I recently got a tattoo that I have soooooo many mixed feeling about. This is my story…… On March 1st, my best friend and I went to go get tattoos. She got a humming bird for her grandmother who just passed, and I got mine, a tribute to my father. ... 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

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

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
