    I'm not sure of the brand but I've seen tattoo cover up kits at bridal stores and probably at Sephora. Good luck! I have one I want removed some day but it is on the side of my leg/hip so its only visible in a bathing suit.

      I don't know if you have Macy's where you are but they sell it there. It's also available on Amazon & Ebay. Good luck!

        I have an armband that was a result of Im 18 and rebelling by the help of peer pressure! LOL

        I found a local tattoo shop that has a Physician on site. Im going to get an estimate next week. I would like the armband gone by the wedding next year.

          I had laser hair removal done before, and the lady accidental hit the edge of my tattoo. A few days later the spot she hit came out of the skin... it was weird and gross at the same time (it was a black spot... she nicked the edge of a butterfly wing outline).... but the spot she hit totally removed the tattoo part.

            I forgot to mention. The spot she nicked the tattoo, and eventually came out, is slightly lighter than the rest of the skin.

            I can post a pic of what I mean... a pic of what the tattoo look like, and what it looks like know with the spot that came out of the skin from the laser hair removal.

              I picked up a couple of tubs of Dermablend while in Vegas last week...this stuff is amazing! My tattoo disappears under it and it's not even as light as it will be in March. Thanks for the recommendation!!!!

                I have a tattoo on my left upper arm. I saw some tattoo cream that can be used to cover the tattoo but I am not sure how good it covers or if it will come off on your dress. I am not sure what I am going to do about mine but not willing to endure pain to have it removed. Good luck to you.

                  No problem. I used to work at a restaurant that didn't allow tattoos so the girls all used it to cover any visible ones.

                    I started my first session today.

                    Holy crap that hurt. Luckily its a very short process, and the girl kept talking to me! LOL It feels like someone is lighting a lighter on you, or like grease splats.

                    2-4 sessions and it should be gone she says. She gave me a deal on my arm and my ankle. So I did both. It will be nice to see them gone. I really hated them.

                    Looks like it took my wedding to push my butt in gear to get them removed! lol
