My Tattoo Removal Session | Part Two

Tattoo

After watching an episode of Tattoo Fixers where you could still see some of the old tattoos under the cover-ups, I decided it was best to carry on with my removal endeavour!

**Disclaimer** There are some pretty graphic photos of healing tattoos, if youโ€™re squeamish or eating, itโ€™s probably best not to go any further. ๐Ÿ˜€

This time, I at least managed to get a photo of the tattoo straight after the session! J wasn’t able to come with me though so I had no one’s hand to try and break!

Session-2-Afterwards

Although I applied the Emla cream two hours before the appointment and wrapped the area with clingfilm, I’m pretty convinced it was even more painful than the first session! I was trying really hard not to tense, but it was impossible and two weeks later, my lower back is still playing up ๐Ÿ™

After the session, I went straight home and laid on the sofa as a whimpering, pathetic mess. I put frozen peas on the area every couple of hours for about 5-10 minutes. This really helped to take the heat out of my skin. Although I was a lot better at aftercare this time, it blistered even more than before!

Session-1-blisters

I bought some Sudocrem this time thoughย and it’s worked a lot better than the Germolene, the blisters have healed up a lot faster. One week on from my session; it was healing pretty well!

Two weeks on and it’s almost healed. The scabs have all fallen off and there’s a layer of new skin. It’s definitely better than the first time when it took about 5 weeks! It’s started to look a lot lighter and I almost can’t wait for my next session in March!

    1. Ahaha. Yes. I’m too impulsive for tattoos really! The holly on my back was only done because an old boyfriend hated tattoos and I was too scared to break up with him. I thought a tattoo would say it better! X

  1. Oh I have such a tattoo regret on my upper arm – it’s only a little one but looks awful ๐Ÿ™ So sorry to hear the pain you’ve gone through with it, not sure I’d be so brave huni but keeping all crossed it gets easier for you XXX

      1. It was a wee oriental symbol that means goodluck… got it when I was 16 and it looks atrocious ๐Ÿ™ Thankfully it’s only tiny and on the top of my arm which I rarely show. Still, not sure I could go through the pain. Might be best to try rubbing a numbing cream on the area before you go the next time – your GP might be able to prescribe something to help ease the pain huni. Just a thought XXX

          1. That was the cream I was thinking off but couldn’t for the life of me remember!!! lol Awwwh – sorry to hear it still hurts ๐Ÿ™ Gee it must be really quite harsh!! XXX

          2. Ahhhh I can’t imagine – I nearly passed out with the tattoo pain, though I have such a low threshold it’s not surprising *sigh* Nope, defo couldn’t do it – you’re so brave!! XXX

          3. That’s what my cardigans do ๐Ÿ˜‰ hehe Though I never have the arms on display. It’s one of those regrets that rarely ever causes me too much bother becuase it’s always covered up but if I was ever going short sleeved I’d definitely go with covering it up ๐Ÿ™‚ XXX
