Deciding on Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments
I am thinking about getting laser tattoo removal treatments. I have this old one on my foot that I want to get rid of but have a hard on deciding if I want the treatments because I heard they hurt. I saw this [URL=""]video[/URL] and it actually looks pretty tolerable and really effective. Any advice to help me decide on laser tattoo removal treatments?

Hi Kelly

If you goto my blog sherav.wordpress there is a chapter I wrote on tattoo removal it goes through all the different types of removal. 9It is free I wrote it for the tattoo community).

As laser goes it is tolerable but it does hurt and is a slow process.

Take Care

Hey Kelly do not be scared of laser removal. many go for it because its really active. many of my friends have tried this technique.

Hey Kelly,

I'm currently having treatment on a tattoo I have on my upper arm: it's like a tribal pattern going round in a ring. It's all black too. I've had about three treatments and it's already faded quite a bit. As you have treatments it just looks like it's fading.

It is uncomfortable to have the treatment but my nurse told me to put on some topical anaesthetic cream from the chemists before treatment. I found this really helps. Also, it doesn't take that long to treat which is a relief. Mine takes about 10-15 mins.

Hi, Kelly,
I think laser removal is the best choice, you can go to getbetterlife to ask for help.

Better still, why not take a look at the clinic I get mine done at? I go to sk:n clinics. There's info about the treatment on their website.

Hope this helps :D

I think if the result is good enough, you can just hold the pain. If you really don't like your tattoo anymore, then go for laser removal...
