Yesterday I have been reading many opinions that are on this site, and they are extremely helpful, thank you so much - and as a thank you I decided to share my tattoo removal process with you. It may be especially interesting as tattoo is very colorful and big one too.
The thing with my back is my nightmare, because I had another tattoo there, went for few laser sessions, and decided to cover it up, instead of continue. And this was my mistake, because image on the paper was looking different to the end result. I like the way it is made, it is very professional, it is just that it so big and not that balanced as I anticipated, but this can happen with the cover ups.
The 1st tattoo removal i was going thru with the Neodimio-Yag Q-Switched, and the results are seen on the 1st picture, it was sessions so I have to say I was really happy. I do not have the original, but it was really dark (beside of the flower). If anybody would like to know the name of the company, i will give it on priv.
Right now I have read that the newest and better option is Nd:Yag Q-Switch con filtro KTP (Ink Hunter), in which session of the elimination is followed by the TR LED lamp session, which stimulates the healing process.
When I was removing the last one I had 5 sessions with maybe 5 weeks break, and then the picture was taken 5 month after the last one. This time I think I will take approach of taking session every 8-10 weeks, to give my skin more relax and allow the body to remove ink efficiently. I am almost never sick, so my immune system is in pretty good shape, hope that helps! ;-)
I am also not sure yet, if I will remove the whole bird, or just the body. I was thinking to leave the tail and add something around it. But I am also afraid that I will not be happy again! So I will be taking the removal sessions in the tattoo shop, it has very good recommendations, which will allow me to consult them about possibilities.
I will let you know it all, and meanwhile please keep your fingers crossed for me to get a bargain price!!
All the best,
