Lifestyle Review: My Laser Tattoo Removal Journey - Part III

Having begun my Laser Tattoo Removal journey back in May of last year, I'm excited to finally share the results. Six easy sessions and one tattoo cover-up later, I couldn't be happier. Here's a look at the before and after...

The then...
It may have been a long process but I have to say that I could not be happier with the finished product. As many of you will know from my last two posts on this, the original plan was to remove a simple butterfly tattoo on my wrist that I got when I was around 16 years old. I wasn't necessarily looking to have it removed entirely, but just enough so that I could have it covered with a fresh design that was more in keeping with the rest of my tattoos. 

The After
Part I and Part II of my journey but I started my tattoo laser removal just over a year ago at Pulse Light Clinic* on Tottenham Court Road. Having gone in with an old, poorly done and all black tattoo to start with, I knew that I would see good results but I didn't expect to be finished THAT quickly.

I'm very pleased to say that after just six short sessions, my tattoo was almost completely gone. As you can see from the after photo, apart from a few little areas and some poor lighting, most of the tattoo was completely faded. And, having checked in with my tattoo artist throughout the process, it was finally ready to cover!

And the now...
Now, as I was covering up an old tattoo, I knew I had to go dark for my cover-up piece. To ensure the old tattoo was completely hidden, my tattoo artist (Josh Marks at Black Lantern in Southampton) actually drew the design on my skin in free-hand in biro and sharpie. And I'm honestly so happy with the finished piece. I can't see any trace of the original tattoo and I still find myself inspecting it.

Due to some scaring from the original piece, I was worried that this would show through but thankfully I've had no problems with it at all. This is not to say that everyone will have the same experience as me but I honestly could not be happier with the whole process and the treatment I received overall from Pulse Light.

Well, that's it for my third and final instalment of my Laser Tattoo Removal Journey. Don't forget to check out Part I and Part II if you haven't already. A huge thanks to PulseLight Clinic for the tattoo fix - I cannot recommend this process enough if you're particularly unhappy with a tattoo and are looking in to getting it removed. But tell me, have you ever considered laser tattoo removal? Have I left anything out? As always, I love reading your comments and questions so please do leave me lots of lovely ones below.  

Until next time,
