    Default Tattoo removal

    A bit of a random question! But has anyone had a tattoo removed successfully? Did it hurt/take long? Happy with results?

    It hurts a million times worse than getting a tattoo!

    Green is difficult to remove. I had some black and red that was removed in a few sessions, but most of the green is still there. I haven't been back for treatment for around five years so technology may have improved since then.

    It is really painful!

    Bugger!

    I have a tart that is blue and black, it has stretched somewhat through 2 pregnancies and now looks a bit yuk. I'd rather get rid of it....was one of those silly things we do when 18

    I haven't had any removed but a friends Husband did about 2 years ago from his hands.

    Like a PP said, it hurt much worse than getting the actual tattoo. You can still see it (but lighter). He was told he could work after 2 days. He is a butcher. He could not work for over a week. Where the removal took place, his hands opened up and a substance (pus and ink) leaked out. Apparently it was pretty disgusting. Definitely couldn't work with food. I don't know how long it took to heal.

    I don't know whether the skin opening and leaking is common, but it makes sense as the ink has to go somewhere. Hopefully someone else has more info they can share.

    I did....but not sure I'd want that either! It's not visible to anyone unless in underwear or bikini. It may be a long time, if ever, this body is in an actual bikini again anyway!!
