4 days after 4th picosure.

Almost a week after


Feeling really fed up today, to everyone else my tattoo seems to have faded but to me I look at it and maybe convince myself that its going. 8 Treatments in total 2 years nothing but pain and swollen fingers and awful scarring on the bottom of my finger. Really feel like just giving up and stopping all treatments. I cant even have a cover up because of were the tattoo is. Has anyone ever used tattoo fading cream? Does this help?

Almost 4 weeks after 8th treatment

So here I am 4 weeks after my 8th treatment....if i had known it would take this long I would never of started this whole process. :(

How this Tattoo became.

So this is how I got the Tattoo.....I originally had my now Husbands name David underneath all this ink on my hand...We had a stupid row and I ran out and had it covered. Now I'm stuck with this horrible tattoo on my hand, I didn't regret straight away, it was in 20112 when I decided me and my now husband were going to get married, I looked at wedding rings and every single one looked hideous on my tattooed finger :( gutted was an understatement, that's when it hit me in the middle of a jewellery store I almost cried, straight away I looked into tattoo removal, I got married last year August 2014 and had to have it covered with Make up. So I started this whole process to have it removed for my wedding, didn't work out and now I'm stuck with half a faded tattoo.

New laser clinic!!!

So I just went for a consultation and patch test on my tattoo, really lovely people so understanding and professional. 6 weeks and I have a session booked in :)

5 weeks after 8th treatment.

So Saturday just gone I found myself on the internet looking at hand cover up tattoo's :/ in the end I decided I'm going to carry on with the removal process, but I was so close to giving up and having it covered. just over 3 weeks until my laser treatment is due at my new laser clinic, will update then :)

9th laser treatment

Ok so yesterday was my
9th treatment and it killed... But it was at a new laser place and the lady there was great.

Pic of 9th treatment

Deep down im disappointed :(

Maybe I should just give up now?
This is my 9th treatment so why is it not i just give up now and save my money.

Maybe it is fading?

Maybe im being hard on myself maybe it is fading alot? This is only 4 days after treatment

11 days after 9th laser

11 days later and we have some fading!

2 weeks later

Before and after 9th treatment


Just thought I would update you all on here and let you know that after a lot of thought I am going to give up on tattoo removal, (LASER) two years and 9 treatments in I feel that it just isn't working for me like I would of hoped...But I would like to thank so many of you for your kind words and support it really has been a massive help. I'm off on holiday in two weeks so maybe a little sun will help my fading process more....But until then thank you all so much. hopefully many of you get the results you want with removal but I guess its not for everyone (ME) but I gave it a go at least.
