The Reel Laser Tattoo Removal

Hey everyone! Got an email from a couple of filmmakers trying to get enough funding for a documentary about tattoo removal (brilliant idea) that they're currently making. The official description is:

“D'inked” is a documentary about people who have tattoos, people who give tattoos and the people and technology that make tattoos disappear.

They sent me a link to the trailer, and it looks entertaining and very professional! I thought that many of you would have an interest in seeing a movie of this nature, (...cause you're reading my blog!). They need help, so if you like it, support it! Here's the link to the trailer and the place to make a donation if you want to see it on the big screen (the minimum donation is only $1 US):

Good Luck Guys!

  2. Hi, thanks for posting all of this. I just started this process with an arm tattoo. Like you, I just sit and stare at it, trying to will the process to work faster. It's been 6 days since my first treatment so obviously results are negligible at this point. *sigh*

  3. I really appreciate you posting all of this about the process. I have had two treatments so far, and the itching is pretty maddening. The nurse recommends vaseline or Aquaphor to keep the area moist. What do you put on the removal area post-treatment?

    Thanks again!


  4. Hi Sarah2ya.

    I did 9 laser sessions (Qyag) to remove a black tattoo on my shoulder. It's been 8 months since my last procedure and now I have a hypochromic and hypertrohic scar. Did your scar reduced after a certain time period?


  5. Fortunately, lasers have made this process a lot easier. Q-switched laser became commercially available in 1990s to remove tattoos. The lasers break ink particles into very small micro-particles. Our body is then able to get rid of these small particles on its own. Different colors respond to laser tattoo removal differently. Usually dark colors like black and blue are easier to remove, while green and yellow are difficult ones. But new Q-switched lasers are very effective in removing green, yellow, and other difficult to remove pigments.

  6. I have a nasty tattoo on my shoulder that I need removed. Do you know of a laser tattoo removal place near Salt Lake? That would help a lot.

  7. Hi Sarah, thanks for making the blog. Any chance of update photos. My biggest concern is if the pigment becomes normal again or do you end up with a white version of the tattoo in its place.

    Take care
