non-laser tattoo removal, 2 years 'healed' photos

Recommended Posts

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.

Looks like it, thanks @Ducky15568. I thought it would be worthwhile knowing the method since from time to time we get people here asking about particular non-laser tattoo methods. Now we can point them to this thread because the results in the first picture are horrible.

Just so I put this out there as a disclaimer, I do laser tattoo removal, in case there was a wonder. This client agreed (and signed) waivers for me to use photographs I took of them. They did not recall the brand name of service that was done on them and even if they did disclose it to me, I wouldn't simply put a business on blast.

It most likely was the aforementioned brand earlier in this thread, but out of courtisey to the brand which I have no first hand experience, I won't (and can't) confirm what 'lactic acid' method was indeed used.

I'm just putting this out there as a public service because the client was sold pretty hard on the service by the tech who bashed laser as being far to painful to actually deal with and that this method would be faster and yield better results. In my clients words, paraphrased: the laser treatment was quick with very little discomfort.

For full disclosure, I'd like to request photos of post and healed laser results.

No problem, I'll get you an update in about 6-7 weeks when the client comes back in. My work speaks for itself though, as does most professional laser operators. Because I'm not here to promote myself / business but rather as a resource for the community, I rarely post progress photos on here. Take a look at my website / social media profiles in the meantime though.

I just wanna say..I am not in the least bit squeamish by nature, but some of the pictures of these non-laser methods in-progress make me wanna barf. So, so gross and traumatic looking. Knowing that this is the end result makes it kind of a no-brainer for me.

2nd client in, in a week.

Not happy with the cover-up on their chest they sought out tattoo removal. Several months after having a single treatment with the 'non-laser' type of tattoo removal and they are left with these scarred and discolored dots.

Please, ask questions and look at portfolios of work prior to starting tattoo removal with anyone.

    • Hi everyone my name is Ben. It wont let me post this question to the AFter Care section. So I'm posting it to the only place it will let me post it, the initiation thread. I just have an aftercare question and would REALLY appreciate some insights from the experts on this forum. So here goes ...   Ok, so let me start by saying, I am incredibly sorry that I did this. I did not mean to spread my germs to others. I got a tattoo exactly one week ago and it was mostly done healing (a few small scabs and peeling). So, my artist didn't tell me not to go swimming. I guess she just thought I knew. SO I went swimming laps at the YMCA indoor public pool. After I got out, a guy saw my new tattoo and mentioned to me that I shouldn't be swimming with that cos it could cause infection. So, I googled it. And found a lot of horrifying stuff. I also had a small open scab that I had accidentally scratched the night before. I immediately went home and washed everything with antibacterial soap. I put H2Ocean on the tattoo and Bacitracin on the open scab. So now I'm wondering, am I like, totally screwed? I'm all worried about flesh eating bacteria and infection. The open scab is still really itchy, but doesn't look infected at all. Any advice on how to handle this, other than NEVER doing this again would be greatly appreciated. Again, I am very apologetic for spreading my germs. The thought never occured to me to not do this and now that I know, I NEVER will do anything like this again. Thanks! 
    • eh, not much more that a week or so. it's an open wound, and the new layer of skin needs to grow over it.
    • Hello, I got my first tattoo of my recently deceased pet two weeks ago and was wondering how long the ink staining the surface of my skin will stick for? I've gently washed the tattoo with un-fragranced soap twice a day and it seems to be coming off very slowly and ever so slightly. it's not that visible with flash but it's basically little bits of ink stuck in the surface crevices/lines of my skin. Thanks! edit: i typed two weeks ago instead of two days ago oops
