PicoSure is an FDA-approved laser technology that uses short bursts of energy for the removal of tattoos, moles, acne scars, and age spots, as well as the reduction of wrinkles. PicoSure's bursts are measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second) which cause the tattoo ink or other damage to break apart into tiny particles which are eliminated by the body. Compared to traditional nanosecond lasers, PicoSure may be more effective on stubborn colors and require fewer treatments to achieve final results.

Half Sleeve Picosure Tattoo Removal - Allentown, PA

My half sleeve was my first large body modification and even though I went to a reputable shop, I was set up with a fairly new artist (I didn't know this at the time) and I should have been told what I wanted didn't translate well into a tattoo.

No longer in love with my tattoos

I think my story is very likely similar to many of the folks in this forum. I'm 30 now, and I began getting tattoos at age 18, with various cover ups and improvements, adding small and large pieces along the way. I loved my tattoos until I was around 22 years old, and since then have felt more... READ MORE

What the F@$K Was I Thinking?!

In mid September 2016 I lost my mind and got a tattoo on the front of my neck. The tattoo says "Gypsy". It's all black ink. Black letter along with black shading.
