My mom tried to have one of her tattoos removed. It was on the inside of her forearm, and the second it was done, she regretted getting it. She covered it with a bandaid for a while, then started laser treatments. She said they were incredibly painful and lasted for almost a year. Her tattoo isn’t removed, either– the blue ink won’t go away. I don’t remember how much exactly it cost, but it was over $1k.

I know that’s probably not the happy ending you were hoping for, but it’s an experience 🙁 Sorry, hun!

I do believe that it is expensive and very painful and the success depends on the type/color of ink you have.

I think you can still be a good example to your children if you have a tattoo ;o)  I doubt they’re going to see your hip that often…haha.

Oh, and I just want to see a pic because it can’t be THAT bad ;o)

I want to see a pic to! Could it really be that bad?

I don’t know much about removing them, but I don’t think the outcomes are the best. At least its in a hidden place that noone sees. And having a tattoo won’t make you a bad example mom! Maybe you can share the story and your kids won’t get them then!

My sister is looking into getting her tattoos removed, and she said that blue ink is hardest to remove, it almost never goes away.  I hear it’s pretty costly, and also rather painful but don’t have any personal experience with that.  Sorry you dislike your tattoo so much, don’t worry about your honeymoon – no one else will even notice it!
