Before you decide to do 'non-laser' tattoo removal, have a look at this. 2 years after a single treatment and the client is left with pinkish-white scarring. They came to see my yesterday so we could start fading this with FDA approved lasers in hopes they will be able to get it covered up.
I don't do 'non-laser' tattoo removal, but if you have questions in general about what I do or how it works, please ask me. This type of scarring is not a fair trade-off in my mind.
Hello, I'm obviously new here, & I've heard a lot of great things about this forum so I figured I'd give it a shot.
My main reason for joining is because I am in desperate need of advice for a cover-up of the tat I got when I turned 18.
As you can see it's fantastic. On top of it being a bright green square its also slightly crooked (The way I'm standing trying to take the pic myself makes it look a lot worse)
I've got a rib cage piece of black & grey roses and a compass, so I'd like to stay away from more roses. Ideally i'd like to use as little color as possible as well, but I'm open to whatever needs to be done to save me from the "Yea I think your tractor's sexy" comments every time I go to the beach.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
So my name is Wes and I'm the owner of a Tattoo Removal business in South Tampa, FL. Before you gawk at at the thought of removing tattoos, a big potion of our tattoo removal business is for individuals like yourselves that might have just run out of real estate and need to remove an old or undesirable tattoo so that they can add a new piece.
I'm joining to hopefully provide better insight into the tattoo removal business and the available options out there, so your'll find me in the coverup / removal threads most of the time.
I myself have a few tattoos none that I've wanted to remove (yet), but I have tested our lasers out of curiosity.
Feel free to ask me anything and I'll do my best to give a honest / educated answer. Looking forward to becoming acquainted with the Last Sparrow community.
Hows it going? My names Lacey...I'm from fl. I've been getting random ink since I was legally able and I've kind of gotten into a bad situation. I joined the forum because I do have a passion for the ink and I love seeing how creative people can be and their own ideas. My situation happened whenever my main tattoo guy went mia and it took several years for me to find him. Since I couldn't find him I went ahead and tried out a new guy that had a decent rep at the local tatt shop...needless to say I gave him my idea and he drew it up nicely. What didn't happen properly was the placement of a couple things...i'll post them later so you can see and the line was crap. as soon as I saw it I just stopped him, we shared words and I left. Right now I cant really leave my state and cant afford to go to the derm to get it lasered so I'm looking for a shop in fl that does it at a decent price...and I finally got found my old tatt guy, he'd had to go to NY for his mom. After he saw what I had to work with he agreed to work with me and help me cover it up, but some of it has to be faded and he has a couple tats he would like to get rid of himself....any help would be awesome and I don't mind conversing with random people...so if you ever want to chat, hit me up :cool:
