Advice about laser tattoo removal please...

I have noticed that lots of riders have tattoos but have any of them gotten them removed through laser tattoo removal? I am considering laser tattoo removal treatments on this old tattoo of mine that I want gone. I heard they hurt but then I saw this video and does not lookl so bad and actually really effective. I do not know anyone who has had it done so any advice would be appreciated!!!!

Re: Advice about laser tattoo removal please...

i only know one girl that did that. she had to go through multiple treatments and it still wasnt getting rid of it all. it would fade the hell out of the tattoo but it was still noticeable after like 8 treatments so she just ended up getting it covered up by a better tattoo. guess it varies for each person/tattoo though.

yeah wrecking balm I think would work better just because it is basically a chemical peel for your skin so your just stripping layers off and your body puts a new one and over and over and its pretty much gone..

get a cover up, any type of removal isnt guaranted and while discolor your skin or leave scars. laser removal hurts a lot more than putting it on.

Re: Advice about laser tattoo removal please...

If it were me, I'd cover it. You might go talk to a shop and see how well it could be covered the way it is. They might suggest you get a laser treatment (or a few) to lighten it (or try wrecking balm, if you trust it). That would open up your cover up options a lot.

Re: Advice about laser tattoo removal please...

That dudes back tattoo is sick, why the fugg would you dedicate your entire back to such an awesome piece only to have it removed???

FYI. A friend of mine got a symbol removed from his shoulder and it doesn't tan there anymore. LOL In the summer it looks like a near perfect circle of pastyness!!!

Re: Advice about laser tattoo removal please...

Tattoo removal by laser was performed with continuous-wave lasers initially, and later with Q-switched lasers, which became commercially available in the early 1990s. Today, "laser tattoo removal" usually refers to the non-invasive removal of tattoo pigments using Q-switched lasers. Typically, black and darker colored inks can be removed more completely.

Re: Advice about laser tattoo removal please...

hiii belle24 the best way to get your tattoo removed is that you should go for Laser tattoo removal, in this process, a stream of light waves with different intensities is thrown depending on the color of the tattoo, It breaks the tattoo element into fractions which then get cleaned away by body's blood circulation system. It gives comparatively lesser pain then any other popular means of tattoo removal.
