Why I had my tattoo originally and why I am having it removed
I’d wanted a tattoo of an owl for many years. They were my mum’s favourite animal and they’re mine, so I knew that no matter what, it would always be something that meant something to me. I spent months and months searching for the perfect owl and after trying and failing to find one I loved I sought out a tattoo artist I knew was excellent and asked her to design one for me.
The night before my appointment to get it tattooed was the first time I saw the design. I wasn’t 100% sure of it, it was cute but was it for me? I told myself it was just nerves for the upcoming appointment to get it done. Once I’d had it done though, the excitement took over and I grew to love it. As time went by though, I began to feel like it was too big and even though I did like the design, I wished the tattoo itself was smaller.
After hearing about Laserase, I decided to take the plunge and get it removed. After my first consultation, I had a test patch lasered and I was surprised how little it hurt in comparison to what I was expecting. That’s not to say it didn’t hurt but it was definitely bearable. So I booked my first treatment for the following week once they could see how my skin had reacted.
