Cool First Laser treatment on Tattoo!

I had my first treatment of tattoo removal on my lower back today. It hurt like a SOB! Even with the numbing cream! but the good thing was, its super quick! Took no more than 40 seconds to do the whole area. Looks like I will only need about 3 treatments yay!
I will post some pics later of my progression.

I'm curious to see how yours goes. I have been having one removed from my ankle and it has been hell... I'm getting some sort of skin infection. I can't wait to have it completely gone!

Congrats! Sounds like are going to have a great result! I have had two removed, and the experience was different each time!

I heard they are developing a tattoo ink that can be erased with one laser treatment, and no scarring. It is a special ink that can be completely blasted away from a certain laser frequency.

My tattoo is about 5 inches. I'll post some pics tomorrow. I was lucky with this one because it was all shading..no solid lines. So basically the ink was diluted to begin with...thank god! I don't think I could handle too many treatments!
