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...

I am looking to remove a few tattoos I got almost 20 years ago. I've been looking into different lasers and Picosure & Picoway. I have a few consultations lined up, and hoping to get these removed within the next two years. Luckly they are on the smaller side, since I never had enuff money to... READ MORE

I have decided to write this review because my friend has been hounding me to write one!! I have went through two treatments one month apart one in July 2014, August 2014, and will go for another in September 2014. I am using a qswitched laser follow by a Scicon (sp) treatment. I did not use... READ MORE

So I have a few tattoos.. I would like to get them all off but becuase it is so costly I decided to remove the ones I dislike most... that would be stars on my neck I got about 5 years ago and a toast on my ankle I got about 9 months ago.. (don't ask). I have had the toast lasered once already... READ MORE

I got my first tattoo on my upper left arm in May, 2010. After the initial excitement wore off, I began to see that the quality wasn't all that great. Still, I thought it was okay and was content enough not to want to get rid of it. However, after a few months, it began bugging me and I started... READ MORE

I got this tattoo as a cover up. However now i totally regret it and it's making me depressed... I have not eaten or slept in days. I have looked into many types of removal and i think Laser will probably take many sessions at this point. Does anyone know any doctors that performs excisions for... READ MORE

The first tattoo I had removed was the I on my left hand finger. I got it when I was 20 yrs old, married to the wrong person. Then we thankfully got divorced; I had it about 4-5 years. It was a date, black and very dark& noticeable. About 5 treatments of laser removal and it's completely gone!... READ MORE

I have been wanting a tattoo for years. My partner wasn't so thrilled at the idea when I announced I had an appointment to finally get one. It isn't a decision that was spontaneous. It was the result of a long reflection and I put a lot of time in it, and choosing the place, motif and artist.... READ MORE

Where to begin… i'm sure my story is similar to many on here… I had thought about this tattoo on and off for a while, but when it came to it, it was a spur of the moment/totally impulsive kind of thing like, i liked the idea of it but hadn't seriously considered if i want it on ME and in suc...

Same old story here but I really need help. I haven't seen many tattoos like mine looking to be removed with success or even progress photos. Does anyone have experience advice or even photos of hope? I'm currently in a bad mental state. I don't want to get into what's going on in my head but... READ MORE

I went for a patch test 8 weeks ago in London which are charging £89 for 4 sessions but im not sure if the area that was lasered will be alright, after i had the patch test it was red and sore and just looked kind of grazed but i didn't get any blisters, it has now been 8 weeks and the area ...

On the 3rd of January 2016 I dove into getting my first two tattoos. The first tattoo put on my body fills me with joy, the second however has left a mark on me that has shaken me up. The concept of the tattoo I loved and still do love. It represents me, but the execution, the size, the... READ MORE

I think this is a great website with a lot of good information. However, there is nothing here that pertains to my situation or my options. I hope to see some progress if I throw enough money at the tattoo. I also do not want any scarring or discoloring. I'm a bit skeptical about the R20... READ MORE

Hi guys, I have never done a blog thingy before so just bear with me. Ok so, I have 5 big tattoos I want gone. I understand it's going to be a slow process but I'm up for it! I have a full b&g sleeve, some letting on the top half of my stomach, a big coloured Lego men on my left thigh, cat... READ MORE

About two and a half years ago I decided I wanted to remove four tattoos that I have on my arms (two on each arm). I had the tattoos done about twenty years ago. Kids eh? :) With this in mind I began to research into laser tattoo removal. As luck would have it I came across a specialist laser... READ MORE
