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. I let it fade for a few months and had a beautiful cover up. I was so happy it reignited my love of tattoos now... READ MORE

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

Desperate to Remove Cosmetic Tattoos Eyebrows LASER - Florida, FL

I had very sparse eyebrow hair. Went to a bad tech. Who tattooed them WAY too high! I have tried saline with little result. Test spot piko laser which darkened. And now I'm trying acid removal.

My Laser Removal Story

I considered laser removal for years on a tattoo on my upper arm which I regretted getting about one year after I had it done. I was apprehensive of laser removal for many reasons: cost, pain, questionable effectiveness, etc. Recently a local spa/salon was offering a promotion for a free session... READ MORE

Tattoo Removal with YAG Q-switch laser

Got a tattoo a few months ago, and haven't been happy about the placement since day 1. I even had the stencil places a few different places because I was unsure, but I didn't listen to my gut and went along with the original suggestion of tattoo artist and my friend. 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?" In the last 14 years, I have gotten several more tattoos, I've even covered one that wasn't one of my... READ MORE

The Journey to Get the Dragon off my Back - Oslo, Norway

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

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. The artist's work was very poor to say the least and my small tattoo was etched so deep it is basically very thick scar... READ MORE

Q-Switch, PicoSure, Revlite and Engliten

Like the title mentions, I have been treated with 4 different lasers and have had 19 treatments over the course of 5 years. As you can imagine, I’m pretty devastated over the fact that the tattoo is not only still there but also very visible. And on top of that, I have moderate to severe s... READ MORE

Picosure Tattoo Removal - North Myrtle Beach, SC

I dislike the tattoo on my side although it was done well and I wouldn't consider it a bad tattoo. I used the picosure website to find a location near me with the laser I wanted.

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

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. I am now 22 and have had 5 tattoo removal treatments. The tattoo is 6 years old and made of only black ink. I have an... READ MORE

Total Regret After my Latest Tattoo - Arlington, VA

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.

Tattoo Removal on Arm

I've been slow to put a review on here, but wanted to let others know about the experience I have had so far with the tattoo removal.

I have a large, upper armband with mutli-colored ink (lots of greens & blues) which has remained vibrant for 20+ years that I have lived with this tattoo.

Happy I Persevered with Removal!

I had an old Mexican dragon on my right shoulder that had become blurred and faded. It was also not me anymore but a post punk tribal phase that meant something to me when I was 25 but not the person I am now. I embarked on laser treatment and could not believe the pain. I almost quit but I... READ MORE
