Tattoo Removal - The Browning! - The Before

So, I had some writing on my arm aprox 5 years ago and after a few months I hated it. It was tacky song lyrics and I questioned how it would affect me and my career.

Another Tale of Regret

I am starting my second journey in tattoo removal. I have previously had a large shoulder cap tattoo "removed" with Enlighten. After 4 sessions I couldn't bear the pain and gave up.

Q-Switch + Picosure on 1 Year Old Tattoo - Edmonton, Alberta

Costs: $350/ Tx Estimated that it will be fully removed in 5-7 (I don't quite believe that -- thinking more on the 10 tx side because some parts are very dense) Procedure 1: Was NOT painful at all , which was weird to me because I have a low pain threshold. Numbing cream was applied for 45... READ MORE

I've Finally Begun Laser Tattoo Removal!

Today was my first laser tattoo removal session. I'm going to Treasure Valley Tattoo Removal in Boise, ID. The pain wasn't nearly as bad as I was thinking it would be.

Mistake over Mistake- Tattoo Cover Up Regret - New York, NY

About three years ago, I decided to get a small simple tattoo. I made a mistake in going to a questionable tattoo shop to have it done, and ended up with a lumpy scarred mess with a blow out that made my arm look permanently bruised. The artist basically dug trenches into my skin, joking to his... READ MORE

I got the tattoo when I was 18 years old (the summer of 2003) when I had just graduated. I was young and got the tattoo for all the wrong reasons. Never hated the tattoo, but never loved it either. I have looked into getting it removed many times, but never believed that it would work and... READ MORE

My Tattoo Removal Experience (In Progress) - Santa Paula, CA

I was 16 when I decided to get "Live Fast Die Pretty" inked across my stomach. It was an act of rebellion against my strict parents that at the age of 21 backfired with regret.

Tattoo Removal with YAG Q-switch laser

This tattoo is on the front... READ MORE

Love the Tattoo, Not the Location. - Dallas, TX

14 years ago, when I was 18, I got my second tattoo. I wish that the artist had asked me one question. That question being, "Are you going to love this location for the rest of your life?"

Finally Removing My Tattoo After 9 Years of Regret!!! - Dallas, TX

I originally got a small "tramp stamp" my sophomore year of college when my roommates and myself played hookey from school and somehow ended up at a scummy tattoo parlor.

Like the title mentions, I have been treated with 4 different lasers and have had 19 treatments over the course of 5 years.
