statexalchemist asked: do you plan on covering it with something else once it is faded more? (sorry if you answered that already haha). that's what I plan to do with mine
Yea I will get it covered, I just want it light enough to get a decent cover up thats not too heavy on the black.
statexalchemist asked: have you noticed a difference at all from when you first started?
yea, sections of it where the lines were thin have gone almost completely and if i stretch the skin out i can see lots of dots where the ink has gone and there are bits that have faded to a sort of light brown but when you look at it as a whole it does feel like nothing much has happened.
statexalchemist asked: yeah, mine is kind of blocky but it is only black so I am hopeful. thank you for the advice. how much is it costing you per session and what exactly is the tattoo you covered? (if you don't mind me asking)
I booked up when there was an offer on for 6 sessions for £99. I went to a few places before this for consultations and they were charging crazy money I think it was close to a grand they wanted for 6 sessions. The one i’m having laser on is actually 3 old tattoos that kinda overlap each other - its disgusting! (The writing/symbol & red stuff) I have no idea why I ever got any of it in the first place. I just took this pic, its not great quality as you can see but this is the tattoo after 4 sessions, ive got 2 more to go and then think i will need at least another 4 sessions to get it light enough to cover up nicely so its a bit disappointing.
statexalchemist asked: hi, i have a fairly new black roman numeral tattoo on the inner portion of my arm, and i just hate it. i don't think it is done at all, and i am thinking of getting it removed. can you give me some advice and tell me how effective it is? thank you. xx
Hi, it really all depends on the ink, I have found so far with mine that I saw the biggest difference in the first session and since then it has got a little lighter but thats all, black is the easiest colour to get rid of tho so you may get lucky. Mine was proper hammered in so theres just a hell of a lot of ink to break up so its going to take a long time. Im only going by my experience tho, i’m certainly no expert! You should be able to get a test patch done for free, that would give you an idea of how effective it would be and also how painful it is, you may decide its just easier to cover it. Hope that helps. x
