Thanks for posting this! I have tattoos and I love them, but in the event I ever want to get rid of one, I’m really looking forward to following your experience!

Thanks for sharing this. I have a small tat on my hip bone of a four leaf clover (similar to yours) and a heart—tiny tiny, can cover it with a quarter small–and I’d LOVE to get it removed. It is red (the heart) and black (the clover and outlines).

I feel your pain! I’ve started to remove mine on my shoulder and OUCH! I find yours to be pretty pricey. Here in Montreal it is costing me 75$ per treatment and it is a new type of laser that only takes 20 seconds per treatment (6 treatments max). It is called a Q-Switch laser. If you can try to avoid the shots or numbing cream, please do so as my technician told me that it block the laser from attaining and breaking down the ink and can therefore result in more treatments and $$$. Good luck! πŸ™‚

Interesting post, thank you for sharing! I love my tattoos, but there are a few I considered that I am very glad I didn’t get!

Wow! I have 12, and no intention of having any of them removed. I understand that the coloured ones take longer, but I haven’t really looked into it.

I have my first husband’s name in chinese writing on my stomach, and all of my tats are a part of me because I got them for specific reasons and to mark specific parts of my life. I have never had one on a whim, and none of them make me ashamed or embarrassed. I am a bit of an amateur artist and designed most of them myself.

That said, my (oh so supportive) mother told me that my tattoos look horrible when I tried on my wedding dress and that upset me a little bit. She also told me that I was too old to wear white! I love my mam!

@bestbuddies: Wow that all black tat is responding amazingly well!! It’s like halfway faded, only after one treatment?! Consider yourself lucky!

I’m a little concerned with the amount of blistering you have on the butterfly though, or was that part of your allergic reaction? I am also going through tat removal and my doc told me that a little bit of blistering is normal, but it should fade and flatten down within a few days. During that time though, he told me the entire area needs to be continually covered with neosporin. Are you doing that?

I gotta say I can’t imagine how uncomfortable it would be going through 3 removals at once… my tat is tiny — a half inch cross, but on my finger so it’s in the way of stuff. Getting it zapped is like the worst ten seconds of my life, and then the tenderness for the next week or so sucks. Props to you for going through that x 3!!
