I have a tattoo above my ankle that is about the size of a silver dollar and I really want to have it removed. Can anyone please share the best options and how the process works? Thanks!

How much would it cost to remove a small tattoo on one of my fingers? Is there a starting price, because the area is very small, less than an inch I think.

I have a pretty exotic looking tattoo. PicoWay with Resolve claims it can eliminate most tattoos, even the colored ones, and I'd like to hear some opinions about this laser before committing to anything. Is it worth it?...

I read on a doctor's website that Q-switched laser requires between 10 and 15 sessions. Then I found an article saying the tattoo should be completely removed in 1 to 3 sessions. I'm confused. Which one is right?

The bigger the tattoo, the more expensive the removal, right? But are there any other factors that influence the price of Q-switched Laser? I got my tattoo 8 years ago, and it lost a lot of the pigmentation during the y...

I had around 5 sessions of Q-switched Laser 4 years ago to remove a tattoo on my back, and I was left with white patches where the tattoo was. I can also see parts of the old tattoo that couldn't be removed. What can I d...

Is this why it's cheaper? A lot of the PicoSure reviews are positive, and doctors seem to appreciate the benefits of this laser tattoo removal.

A friend of mine recently had PicoSure to effectively remove an old tattoo on her ankle, that had been zapped before with Q-switched laser but didn't disappear, no matter how many sessions she tried. She told me PicoSur...

Some doctors say the skin shouldn't even be tanned, much less dark. What are the options for me being an African American woman? Is laser tattoo removal out of the question?

I'm hoping the answer is one. It's not very easy for me to take several days off work in order to go to the doctor's office and have my tattoo removed.

I found several tattoo removal creams and I can't decide which one to try. Some are not irritating, but take longer to deliver results (Tab B Gone), while others remove tattoos on all body parts but cause irritation to ...

I imagined my tattoo would look different and now I regret getting it. However, from what I've read, there's a lot of people who feel the same way, since 11% have them removed. I've seen some after photos which show a f...

I've seen a dermabrasion tattoo removal video and it looks TERRIBLE. It seems like Dermabrasion needs to remove way too much skin to get a tattoo off. Not sure what the patient felt but it looked very painful! Is there ...

I saw on Youtube that the doctor puts salt over the wound at the end of the procedure. I'm not sure what the purpose is, probably to absorb the ink, even though it must be pretty painful. However, if it does the job and...

I know it's an at home tattoo removal but I don't know what the process is. I've seen a video with a guy who said he had a "salabrasion tattoo removal" but didn't explain what it was. Can somebody explain to me what it ...

Is it any different if the tattoo is on the face? The skin must be more sensitive, that's why I'm asking. I'm not sure it works the same way as with tattoos on the body. How did you remove yours?

I've seen lasers that lighten the skin while removing the tattoo, but then the skin swells up bright red and looks awful. For how long does that last, and what other side effects should I expect?

Can the tattoo wound get infected? Newer lasers probably have fewer to minimal side effects, but are they still considered safe?

I've tattooed the wedding date on my right wrist and, now that I'm getting a divorce, I'd want it removed as soon as possible. I heard there's different lasers which remove tattoos effectively. Is this the quickest way ...
