      Wow, very brave. I have a friend who is doing the same. She got a butterfly tattoo on her back when she turned 18 and I think she said she liked it a week and then regretted it.

        My tattoo is a little lilly on my hip! I regretted it for the first week (I was drunk in mexico when I got it) But now I absolutely love it!

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.
          I've started to get one removed as well and boy does it hurt! I'd say the grease splatters description is pretty accurate. You got a great price. I'm removing a star on my arm and its costing $400 per session!

            Kelly, $400 a session? Wowsers! Is that at a doctors office? Im getting it done at a tattoo shop where a doctor use to do them. But the owners of the shop got certified. So I think that may be why its a bit cheaper.

            These ITCH like crazy. Seriously I feel like itching them off!!!!! So hard trying to not touch them.

            I have to say Im impressed with how well the ankle one looks faded already!

              Yeah, its at a dr office. I wish I could find another way to get it done. I find it funny that the tattoo shop got certified to remove them as well. Talk about cornering the market. You can get your tattoo there and then go back months later to remove it and get another one! lol Great idea on their part.

                Melissa,

                I have a tattoo for about 10 years that I really want to have removed! I've heard some many people say it's a waste of money that they only fade. I live in Houston TX could you please tell what kind of Laser they used on you and if they have a office in Houston!! I want this off so bad!

                Thanks for any help you can give me

                      I have a friend who decided to try this. The first time she put it on she thought it might work ok and thought that the ink was coming up, but after trying it more times she found it doesn't work. She said it causes a lot of bleeding, it hurts and the tattoo hasn't faded. So, she stopped using it.
