I had probably just over 20 sessions. Had a big bright traditional piece on my neck and its pretty much fully gone apart from a few sections.

Well, your post got me to REALLY thinking this whole thing through.  Unfortunately, I'm at a point where just stopping doesn't work for me.  I really wish I would have had better calibrated expectations from the first session.  I was led to believe that this would be a done deal at or around 10 sessions, now it sounds like closer to 20 and never complete removal.  


The office I was going to is no longer doing laser removal, which means I will be looking into other offices.  I am really hopeful the RAP device due out this quarter (full disclaimer I am a small stock holder of SOLY 🙂 ) that there will be a clinic within 10 hours drive that I could visit.  The results remain to be seen but what few pictures have been published, it looks promising.  If it doesn't end up working as well as it seems, I will be spacing out sessions to twice a year and eventually just blasting over it with something that looks better in this spot.  This is not my preference for previously mentioned reasons that I would like to go to work without a tie occasionally, but if it is the difference between having a now messed up tattoo in a bad location, or having a more aesthetically pleasing tattoo in this location, I would go for the latter.

I have actually been thinking of getting a few tattoos removed myself. I have did some really really bad decisions when I was in college and a lot of them are on my skin. Honestly it didn't bother me as much in the past but I live in a respectful neighborhood I married an amazing person and I just feel like it is time for me to get rid of the tattoos. I have been looking for local clinics that do laser tattoo removal and was pleasantly surprised that there are actually so many options available. I settled on a clinic about 30 miles from my home and I have already talked to the doctors. I have scheduled and appointment and the first procedure is going to be done in two days. I am hoping this will go well. Wish me luck
