Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

I want to get my tattoos removed, does laser really work?

PlasticFantastic  -  Oct. 19

Speaking from experience, I can say that laser tattoo removal works best with certain colors. Black and blue ink is the easiest to remove, where greens, reds, and orange, not so much. You will have to endure multiple excruciating and costly treatments. I have a green tattoo and after 18 treatments, I am left with thirty-percent of my tattoo. This may sound impressive, but I spent thousands of dollars, and I am left with this faint green tattoo around my ankle that looks like veins. Yes, people have told me that they thought it was veins. Gross! If they showed me an “after” picture that looked like what I have now, I would have smiled and politely went on my merry way. Instead, I bought a package and I was suckered in for the long haul, with the impression that this magic wand was going to erase the green vines that circled my petite ankle. Now I am stuck with people wondering what the hell happened to my leg. Be very wary of laser removal technicians who act like the procedure is simple, the results are going to be great, and this is going to be as easy as lasering off a wart. It all got me thinking, what’s so bad about a tattoo anyway?
