Tattoo Removal

Anyone here ever had a tat removed? I have a few that I wanna start getting removed and I was just wondering of anyone else has done it... How many visits did it take? How long did you have to wait in between visits? Any recommendations on where to go? Does it really remove it completely or does it just fade it dramatically?

From what I've seen/read/heard, the removal process breaks down the ink and usually takes multiple sessions- but you can still see that there was something there. I've also seen/read/heard that the removal process is way more painful than the actual tattoo'ing process.

Yeah, I've heard and read all that too... but I've also seen it done on tv shows and the people say it feels like getting the tat... Just wanted to hear from someone firsthand who has had it done that isn't on TV or trying to get me to pay them to do it...

I had a buddy down at school that got pissed at our fraternity and wanted to get the tat of it that he had done removed. He went to the first laser removal treatment and said it hurt really bad, but what hurt more was trying to take a shower afterward. It just made it look kind of blurry and he didn't want to take the pain of going back, so he made amends with the fraternity and actually had the tat redone

Yes, this guy was a dumbass.

Go to a good artist and have a cover up done unless you really don't want a tattoo there period. Much cheaper and less painful.

I don't have any interest in covering them up... just want them gone!

There was a cream that they were advertising on the radio a while back (I don't remember the name of it) but it took months to work and I'm not sure that it made the tattoo disappear completely. Anyone know the name of that stuff and how well it works?

I would say just ask a doctor. I've also seen it on Dr. 90210. Depending on your complexion etc.. it can take anywhere from 5-15 visits. The girl on that show that was getting it removed said it didn't hurt like she thought it would.

from what i have seen, it takes a while for them to go away completely. i think it's a scar, and for it to go away, the scar has to heal.
