Tattoo Removal - Cardiff, Wales

Hi all, My name is Chad, and I'm a 22-year-old from Cardiff, Wales, UK.

Thanks Jez. If there's one thing I've learned from this process it's that you truly do get what you pay for. By paying double for the RevLite I am confident that you will see better results, even on the red ink. Fingers crossed for us both! READ COMMENT
