“I’m so happy I went to Eraser Clinic for my tattoo removal. The initial consultation was free and I appreciated their honesty in explaining and answering my millions of questions. The laser technician was so nice and made me feel very comfortable, I was even laughing at bit during my session. It did hurt, but it was over in like 10 seconds. I liked all of the reminder and follow-up calls/texts. Great value and a great experience.”
6. There's pain afterward. And it doesn't stop when you leave the office. I would advise that you budget for discomfort for about a week. For me, the sites blister and need to be covered in a salve and bandaged for a few days; then, they start to de-puff, scab, peel, and regenerate. There is good news though: The more treatments you have, the less aftercare there is. (Since there's less ink reacting to the laser.)
Before the development of laser tattoo removal methods, common techniques included dermabrasion, TCA (Trichloroacetic acid, an acid that removes the top layers of skin, reaching as deep as the layer in which the tattoo ink resides), salabrasion (scrubbing the skin with salt), cryosurgery and excision which is sometimes still used along with skin grafts for larger tattoos. Many other methods for removing tattoos have been suggested historically including the injection or application of tannic acid, lemon juice, garlic and pigeon dung.
The number one factor that determines the final price of a tattoo is its size. A tiny tattoo usually costs less, so the bigger the tattoo, the more expensive it becomes. Plenty of tattoo parlors will charge you with additional money for that first square inch of your skin. This is important so the artist will be able to cover the entire cost of their used materials. Meanwhile, other tattoo parlors will charge depending on how long the procedure went on, and not on the tattoo’s final size – That’s because it could be hard to convince a first-time client to give a specified price a time basis. Nearly every tattoo artist out there will talk about how tattoos are done, before they could officially begin the procedure.
Generally, anyone with an unwanted tattoo can be treated, with the following exceptions:Pregnant or nursing women.Those with an active infection at or near the desired treatment area.Those with heart problems, cancer, history of seizures and immune system disorders.Those with implanted medical devices.Those with a history of Keloid Scarring as tattoo removal may cause keloid scarring.Other factors will need to be considered once you have come in for a free consultation with one of our medical professionals.

Experimental observations of the effects of short-pulsed lasers on tattoos were first reported in the late 1960s by Leon Goldman and others. In 1979 an argon laser was used for tattoo removal in 28 patients, with limited success. In 1978 a carbon dioxide laser was also used, but because it targeted water, a chromophore present in all cells, this type of laser generally caused scarring after treatments.
“I went in last month for a free consultation. Being the first time that I had spoken to anyone about having my tattoo removed in Dallas, I wasn’t sure that I would start quite yet. But my consultation went so well that I bought a package and started immediately! They gave me very realistic expectations, good pricing, and even though the removal lasering isn’t too fun, it was actually a pleasant experience overall. After only one treatment, I am seeing amazing results, especially on the shading. A happy customer here for sure.”
Ouroborus Geometric Art – Just like the mandalas, Ouroborus is another commonly used element in geometrical tattoo designs, as it has a special meaning. In Greek mythology, it signifies a dragon or serpent which devours its own tail and in symbolism, the shape stands for self reflexivity of a person in the circle of life and death. The ouroborus can also be featured as a double one, with two serpents drawn joining each other’s opposite ends and the design is considered as a symbol of volatility. It is also compared with the opposite yet complimentary energies of yin and yang.
Geometrical tattoos need a great deal of perfection and expertise on the behalf of the tattoo artist as these are framed using dots and lines and even a slight deviation in any of the elements can distort the design. For those looking for perfection in symmetry of the tattoo, it is essential to be sure about the design as well as the artist before having it inked, while those who are more relaxed about it can simply go for such a tattoo for sheer happiness and fun. The tattoo’s look also depends upon the thickness and size of the lines and dots. Those who look for something bold can go for vibrant colors in geometric art while people looking for a unique effect can choose 3D designs. In addition to dot work geometric art designs, sacred geometrical tattoos are also in vogue. Such designs have perfectly symmetrical patters and make use of common geometrical shapes such as circles, squares and triangles to create some absolutely amazing designs, such as the Gordian knot and flower of life designs.
I wanted to do a three quarters sleeve, and had ideas of what I wanted, but had no idea how to put it all together. This was essentially my first time getting seriously inked, and even though I was clueless about how to make it known exactly what I wanted, Viet listened to me and my ideas and gave his professional input and suggestions on how to make it come together and look as amazing on my body as it could possibly be. Viet did an absolutely amazing job and I couldn't be happier with the work that he did. He's an artist in every aspect.

The half sleeve is generally the preferred style of arm tattoo at the moment. Unlike having a full sleeve it allows you to cover up your tattoos with a t-shirt should you need to for work or any other occasion. It also means that you don’t have to tattoo your elbow which can be a difficult area to work with and often you are restricted to the types of styles that you can get inked there.
