Tattoo Removal Options

Recommended Posts

You know what the laser pain is a bit more of a shocker than the actual tattoo. Its like wow, that really hurts. But if you talk and dont think about its, its bearable. And its pretty fast. I have an armband Im getting removed, and an arrowhead on my ankle. So both were done in 5 minutes. She said every session should be that short. So its bearable. I dont know if I could sit through 30 minutes of it to be honest. She did say we can stop if you cant handle it, and I asked how long would it take. She said 5 minutes or so...I said oh dont bother stopping than.

 

She is charging me $100 a session for the armband, and since Im getting the ankle tattoo done at the same time she reduced that cost to $50. She said the ankle should be done in 2-3 sessions. The armband more sessions since she cant do the whole armband at once. It would reduce blood flow and wouldnt be safe. So probably 2-4 sessions on each side.

 

The armband defintely is going to be expensive to remove, but I expected it to be more. Its also worth it to me. I have wanted that thing removed for years now!

 

Looking at it now I can already tell a difference. When it heals a bit more I can take a picture and post it.

Wow, you are brave. I saw your tattoo in your dress pictures and it is a lot to remove! As long as your are happy with your decision and its something you really want the pain is bearable IMO. Can't wait to see the pictures! Good Luck! :)

Its not my half sleeve. Im in LOVE with that tattoo. And just had that done last year. Its an armband.

Dumb decision I made on my 18th birthday. I liked it for a few years but that was probably it.

I do have before pics and when it heals Im going to take progress pics :)

OK wow, thanks for the info! I'm not 100% sure if I want one of mine removed but I've kinda been thinking about it lately. It meant a lot to me at the time but not as much anymore. I think it would depend on what it would look like after...if it was completely gone, I'd definitely consider it. But if it would still kinda be seen or if my skin would look different, then I'd probably rather keep it. I can't wait to see your after pics!

How close together can you have the sessions, i.e. how long will the process take altogether?

I have to wait 4 weeks in between each session. And with the armband she cant do the whole thing in one sitting because it will restrict blood circulation. So every 2 weeks Ill be getting some work done on it. Id say within 8 weeks I should be able to see a good difference!

 

The pictures she showed me of previous clients you cant tell they ever had one. Ill defintely take progress pictures to share :)
