I got tattoos when I was 15! 18 now, removing with picosure!

I got these when I was 15 when my best friend got hold of a mini tattoo machine and we impulsively gave it go.

Yeah you're right, I just worry that maybe the hypopigmentation could be permanent. But I know my skin can only get better, so I am still staying positive! It's just such a long and tedious process, but if my tattoo removal is... READ COMMENT

Hi, I have hypopigmentation also but I don't think mine is permanent as of now. I'm still in the process of removing my tattoos. In the case of my skin not returning to normal I've heard good success with microneedling. You can also get... READ COMMENT
