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.

This tattoo is on the front... 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.

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

First Step - Grand Rapids, MI

I think this is a great website with a lot of good information. However, there is nothing here that pertains to my situation or my options. I hope to see some progress if I throw enough money at the tattoo. I also do not want any scarring or discoloring. I'm a bit skeptical about the R20... READ MORE

I sketched, dreamed and worked on my tattoo for about 5yrs before having it placed. It was not a decision I made lightly.

I Should Have Gone to See Dr. Torgerson from the Start! - Toronto, ON

I made the mistake of initially going to an esthetician spa for laser tattoo removal. After 4 sessions at this spa, I had pretty bad scarring.
