11 Jul Diving Into Tattoo Removal, Part I
Marc came into Ink ON Ink OFF for a cover up tattoo removal on his calf. We recently posted a video of his first session.
He had amazing results! Afterwards we got the inside scoop on the history of his tattoo and what led him to get it removed!
When did you get your tattoo?
I got my tattoo in 1995. So wow it’s been 20 years!
Did you have any special reason to get your tattoo?
Well…. I was in the Navy and 18. That was about it!
Can you explain to us what your tattoo is?
The first tattoo was a diver and shark. I had it done while I was overseas in the Navy. It wasn’t good work and I was never happy with it. When I came back to the states I had the cover up done as King Neptune- God of the Sea.
Why do you want to get your tattoo removed?
I wasn’t happy with how the cover up turned out. It had to be a large tattoo with a lot of ink to cover up the shark and diver and it just turned out so big. So I guess it was everything from the art, placement and size…I just wanted it to be gone. I did a lot of research over the past 10 years and it wasn’t until the PicoSure came out that I actually made the decision to get the tattoo removed.
What was your experience during your first tattoo removal session?
The experience was good. I mean it was uncomfortable but nothing I couldn’t handle. Afterwards I had very little blistering and just 3 weeks later it feels almost completely healed. Honestly, I’m impressed with how fast the green and blue ink has faded. I’m very happy with it and looking forward to my next session. Very excited for the tattoo to finally be gone!
