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

When Two Tribals Go - United Kingdom, GB

Wanted to get rid of the ankle tribal tat, which was a cover up (should have gone for laser at that point!), and also decided the one on my back could take a hike too. Session 1 Jan 2013. Painful but can cope with it. Redness on first night and some itching. Felt it 'stop working' about a week... 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. This weird feeling of something being on you that wont come off. Normally I spend months and months... READ MORE

College Junior - New York, NY

Well this tattoo has a good message but it's too visible and I can see myself down the road regretting it so why not start now asap!! Due the bad quality of the tattoo and very thin ink I hope this tattoo goes in 3 treatments or less but the doctor said 15 plus let's see. Here is the test zap... READ MORE

My Tattoo Removal Journey - London, WV

I am just starting out with my tattoo removal journey, and we'll aware it's going to be a long and painful process.

20yr Old Ankle Wrap Tattoo Removed by Picosure Laser - Peachtree City, GA

I am hoping to update this review as the laser treatments go on. Had first laser treatment 11 days ago, lower leg is still swollen. On ankle wraps they can only do one side at a time due to swelling and safety issues, so I had the inner portion done. I was scheduled for the other side on... READ MORE

The Journey Begins: Tattoo Removal Nova Scotia, NS

At my place of work (a professional office), my tattoos have always been a bone of contention. I've always needed to wear long-sleeved shirts to keep them covered. It's been really inconvenient, especially in the heat of summer, or during pregnancy. I was approached recently, to see if the... READ MORE

59 Yoa Female in Need of Tatoo Removal - San Diego, CA

Pico-sure laser removal had been recommended because of the color intense tattoo wanted removed. Tattoo was in the inside forearm of my dominant hand. 1.

Upper arm sleeve in blackwork - San Francisco, CA

I got my first tattoo on my upper left arm in May, 2010. After the initial excitement wore off, I began to see that the quality wasn't all that great. Still, I thought it was okay and was content enough not to want to get rid of it. However, after a few months, it began bugging me and I started... READ MORE

Hoping to Get Rid of a Large Black Tattoo on my Arm - Germany

Hello everyone! I've got a large black tattoo on my upper and lower arm that does not look like it should do. I wanted a large tree in between others but it went out as something indefinable.

Removing a Large "Cover Up of a Cover Up"! in Burlington, WA

I've had a tattoo on my left forearm for over ten years that my wife never liked. Recently she gave me the green light to get it covered up.

Medium Sized Tattoo with LOTS of Color - Denver, CO

I got this tattoo when I was 18 and have since grown out of the placement and tattoos in general. I have several other tattoos that I want removed but this is the most intolerable.

Painful but Worth It -Fort Collins, CO

I have many tattoos from when I was young. Half of them were done by an ex-boyfriend with a homemade gun. He had spent years in prison "perfecting his art" and I decided to let him practice on me. Now it has been 18 years and I want them gone. Every time I look in the mirror I am reminded of him... READ MORE

Laser Tattoo Removal - Small Black Ink Tattoo on Ankle - Harrison, NY

I started the removal process Jan. 29th and had my third treatment a week ago. So far I'm not too impressed.
