We’ll start with this ghost design. In recent years there has been more of a movement towards smaller, minimalist style tattoos, rather than the traditional ink heavy ones. It also shows that girls are not limited to only getting ‘girly tattoos’. The cartoon ghost is a fun, whilst not been too spooky. Smaller tattoos are also becoming more popular nowadays as they are more affordable and often people can get a few smaller tattoos for the same cost as a bigger one. Not to mention they are also a lot easier to hide/conceal should you need to for work.
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.
Although it’s hard to read in the photo, the wider shot shows you how script can work really well to join different tattoos. It sits below a cross themed tattoo, so is potentially a passage out of the bible that inspires or holds a dear meaning to the person. Script can work great on the leg and backs and also wraps around nicely. When opting for a script tattoo be sure to get someone that’s experience in doing nice lettering.
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.
“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.”
There are certain sayings, which you wish to reveal out to the outside world, but can’t say directly through your mouth. The best thing is to get your desired saying tattooed on your skin.

We recommend that patients limit their physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to avoid irritation or harm to the treated area. After that, patients can go about their days normally, however sun exposure should be limited until the treatment area is completely healed. Of course – we are always on hand, to support the process and help our patients with tattoo removal after care.
Thanks to major advancements in laser technology, we are now able to fade the ink of unwanted tattoos forever. The way removing tattoos with a laser works is that the laser targets and breaks up the pigment of your tattoo. The body breaks it down and flushes it out of its system. The gold standard laser used in tattoo removal is called the Q-switched (quality switched) laser. The Q-switched laser employs high-powered bursts of laser energy to target and fade tattoo ink. Typically, laser tattoo removal takes about twelve sessions to rid of the ink in its entirety. It begins with breaking up the pigments associated with your tattoo. High powered bursts of laser energy target and gradually fade tattoo ink. The number of treatments you receive will depend on size, placement, age and colors of tattoo. Patients typically return to work or their normal activities immediately following laser tattoo removal treatments.
Any scarring that is present in the area to be treated for tattoo removal by the Alma Harmony Q-Switch laser will remain after the tattoo has been removed. In the majority of cases, this scarring may have been caused by the application of the ink when the tattoo was originally applied.If you have a tattoos over pre-existing scars, the scar might lessen the results of the tattoo removal process, as scars tend to exhibit a different type of pigment than surrounding healthy tissue. But, it is important to note that tattoo removal is not the same as scar removal, and will have no effect at all toward that end.
Our Alma Harmony Q-Switch laser produces short pulses of powerful sound waves that pass, without harm, through the upper layers of the skin to target and break up the unwanted tattoo pigment.This energy from the Q-Switch laser shatters the tattoo pigment into small nano (thousands of tiny molecules) sized particles that are then removed gradually by the body’s regular metabolism and lymphatic drainage system.Over the course of your treatment series, your tattoo will gradually fade away. The laser tattoo removal process is non-surgical and non-invasive treatment and can be performed with virtually no downtime.
“Eraser Clinic is awesome! I am on my third session for two different tattoos. The progress I have seen so far is unbelievable. It’s not just the removal process though. It’s the customer experience and care. I absolutely love everyone who works at this location. I have found myself staying after my session and just chatting with them. They such wonderful sweet people. Also the day after calls to make sure everything is fine. You really don’t get that kind of care at any other place. I know because I am currently also getting hair removed at another place and I feel like a number to them there. All and all if you want to have tattoos removed, go to Eraser Clinic. You won’t be disappointed!”
Full Sleeve Warrior Tattoos – The warrior full sleeve design may present the pictures of warriors and weapons, engaged in conflicts and wars. Such a tattoo design reflects sheer power and strength. Other designs may include elements such as hearts, dreamcatchers, feathers, arrow, and skulls. Clock, compass, geometric, anchor, musical symbols and angels are some other common things used in such a design. One can have as many of them included in tattoo sleeves design as he wants, but it has to be discussed with the designers, right from the beginning stages of the tattoo, so that he can plan the design accordingly.
Sacred Geometry is possibly the most exciting recent trend in tattooing culture, given its departure from what most people consider a typical approach to tattooing, i.e figurative works. Dotwork tattoos have been steadily growing in popularity over the past decade or so, but the absorbing of such tattooing techniques into a methodically-planned system in the form of Sacred Geometry is something which is truly taking flight in the here and now. That being said, in actuality this is far from a recent phenomenon, and this is a big part of its significance and appeal. It’s said this tattooing tradition dates back to the time of the Pharaohs. Geometry has been drawn upon to provide knowledge for millennia too – architecture, for instance, is based on geometric visualising.
The variety of ideas for men’s tattoo are so rich, that you can spend weeks in search of your perfect tattoo. The choice of a design is very complicated and the true meaning of the picture will be open only for the owner. If you didn’t make up your mind yet which sketch to choose, you can always look through the photos in the saloons to choose one fitting exactly you. Though, there are few commonly used ideas for men’s tattoos:
Tattoo pigments have specific light absorption spectra. A tattoo laser must be capable of emitting adequate energy within the given absorption spectrum of the pigment to provide an effective treatment. Certain tattoo pigments, such as yellows and fluorescent inks are more challenging to treat than darker blacks and blues, because they have absorption spectra that fall outside or on the edge of the emission spectra available in the tattoo removal laser. Recent pastel coloured inks contain high concentrations of titanium dioxide which is highly reflective. Consequently, such inks are difficult to remove since they reflect a significant amount of the incident light energy out of the skin.
Laser tattoo removal is a successful application of the theory of selective photothermolysis (SPTL). However, unlike treatments for blood vessels or hair the mechanism required to shatter tattoo particles uses the photomechanical effect. In this situation the energy is absorbed by the ink particles in a very short time, typically nanoseconds. The surface temperature of the ink particles can rise to thousands of degrees but this energy profile rapidly collapses into a shock wave. This shock wave then propagates throughout the local tissue (the dermis) causing brittle structures to fragment. Hence tissues are largely unaffected since they simply vibrate as the shock wave passes. For laser tattoo removal the selective destruction of tattoo pigments depends on four factors:
Tattoo removal is most commonly performed using lasers that break down the ink particles in the tattoo into smaller particles. Dermal macrophages are part of the immune system, tasked with collecting and digesting cellular debris. In the case of tattoo pigments, macrophages collect ink pigments, but have difficulty breaking them down. Instead, they store the ink pigments. If a macrophage is damaged, it releases its captive ink, which is taken up by other macrophages. This can make it particularly difficult to remove tattoos. When treatments break down ink particles into smaller pieces, macrophages can more easily remove them.
Those with medium to fair skin tones are best candidates.Tattoos with dark, shallow laid ink are easiest to treat.Areas closest to your heart resolve and heal the fastest.Each individual pigment is comprised of a different kind of metal and will react differently to the laser.Professional tattoo inks that do not have titanium dioxide or iron oxide are easier to treat.Tattoos performed by amateur sources are the hardest to resolve.Typically, the older the tattoo, the more sessions it could take to resolve.Those with immune system deficiencies heal the slowest, so more treatments will almost absolutely be needed.Those who smoke will also need more treatments to rid of the tattoo.White ink cannot be treated.Yellow ink may never fully resolve.Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding will not be treated for tattoo removal.The easiest colors to remove thoroughly are black, dark blue, gray and green. Colors such as light blue, purple, aqua, pink, brown, orange and yellow may never fully fade away.

“For all those who also have ink-related mistakes to take care of, you should give Eraser Clinic a try. Professional and clean, and the staff is great. They are very upfront about what results you should expect and how long it will take. Compared to other laser places I checked out this place is the best price-wise. I already see results two days after my first session, which doesn’t always happen, and I can’t wait to go back again. Also, not painful at all.”
This sort of tattoo is quite a commitment. They involve hours of work in the chair, concentrated effort by the artist and lots of money on the part of the canvas. Sleeves tattoos have been around for several years and their popularity continues t soar. The tattoos have also gained traction over the years and are preferred by both men and women as the go-to design. Once someone chooses to get a sleeve, they often opt to get another sleeve and often continue by getting chest pieces and their backs done.
“Eraser Clinic is the best! I’ve done my research on tattoo removal places and this place was just so welcoming, fast, and comfortable. I recommend them to everyone I know who is thinking about getting a tattoo removed (which is a lot of people). I see a major difference already and so do my friends/family. The results are amazing and it is affordable, so you can’t beat that.”
The symbolism of the butterfly is as diverse as the species itself. Often associated with the soul, the butterfly may represent the spiritual realm. It is also a strong symbol of transformation because the butterfly transforms from a caterpillar into a butterfly, becoming something new and beautiful. This can be a powerful tattoo for those who have endured hardship of any kind and have found a new, better life...
The shapes that are chosen in each design mean something different. The tetrahedron always represents fire while a cube will represent the earth. If you choose designs that have icosahedron’s that signifies your water while octahedron’s represent the air you breath. Your spirit always comes in the shape of an dodecahedron. Many people believe that if you have these symbols tattooed over your body that they will bring health and healing to your body. The symbols balance things out bringing perfect harmony to your body. No surprise then that these types of tattoos have been used like amulets to the body. People believe that geometric tattoos have magical qualities to them that can be used to heal. By putting it on the body you are becoming closer to the spirituality that you are looking for. These ideas have been brought into contemporary times and are becoming an interest for a lot of people.
This geometric tattoo is suited for nature lovers. The shell tattoo, especially the nautilus tattoo, creates perfect symmetry while giving off a natural yet unique look at the same time. Much like the deer, the shell is another favored subject when it comes to geometric tattoos. A shell is known to be a semi-static example of a fractal, and is a constant reminder that everything in nature is pretty much scale-able. The shell, much like human beings, are just a tiny part of a much bigger kind of equation.
Sleeve Tattoo Pin Up Designs – Another well-appreciated design is the one which features pin-up girls, which make your sleeve look really attractive. Some people may have portraits of their lady love or children etched on their sleeves to show their love towards them, while others may have their names included in these designs. Sometimes, some text can be incorporated in the design, which may be anything ranging from a famous quotation to even the lyrics of the favorite song of the bearer.
I have reached out twice to Blink. Technically three, but the first time was a "my bad". My boyfriend and I went up there on Saturday, November 16th just to see the office and talk with the artist (you will not be able to get into the building without access/permission first) so we dialed up the extension and spoke with a gentleman who said to call to make an appointment. Ok, no biggie. That was on me.

Surveys of tattoo removal patients were done in 1996 and 2006 and provided more insight. Of those polled, the patients who regretted their tattoos typically obtained their tattoos in their late teens or early twenties, and were evenly distributed by gender. Among those seeking removals, more than half reported that they "suffered embarrassment". A new job, problems with clothes, and a significant life event were also commonly cited as motivations. Tattoos that were once a symbol of inclusion in a group, such as a gang, can make it difficult to become employed. Tattoos that indicate a significant relationship such as a spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend, can become problematic if the relationship ends. Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria, Marc Anthony and Denise Richards are some of the celebrities that have had this kind of tattoo removed.
A poll conducted in January 2012 by Harris Interactive reported that 1 in 7 (14%) of the 21% of American adults who have a tattoo regret getting one. The poll didn't report the reasons for these regrets, but a poll that was done 4 years prior reported that the most common reasons were "too young when I got the tattoo" (20%), "it's permanent" and "I'm marked for life" (19%), and "I just don't like it" (18%). An earlier poll showed that 19% of Britons with tattoos suffered regret, as did 11% of Italians with tattoos.
Another thing to consider while deciding on your tattoo sleeves is whether you’ll go with color or not. Sleeve tattoos using only black and grey can look amazing, but there’s nothing more eye-catching and vibrant than an arm full of color. If you do go with color, it’s vital that you plan your tattoo beforehand so you don’t end up with a combination of colors down the road that don’t look too great together. Also keep in mind that a colored sleeve tattoo will require more time and money.
Well, I didn't want to deal with the pain of getting a real sleeve done so I bought these. Interchangeable. There was a couple that I did lose right away, not because of the product but because said "nice tat's where'd you get it done" and I just took it off and gave it to them. Only slight problem is.....if your pale as a ghost or don't wear a watch or shirt, they'll be easy to tell that they're fake. Why do I say this? Let's break it down...I'm 6'1, medium build with decent sized arms. I wear a XL sized shirt. These went from my wrists almost up to the end of my arms. Down by the wrist part is where it ends so you have to fold it under "if your looking for the real look". That poses a small problem with overlap, so to take care of that, put on a watch and wah-lah...problem fixed. They are nylon, obviously and have somewhat of a dark color to them, but not dark..it's more tan. In your hands are white as an albino, obviously...up close, they know they're fake. All in all, great product; no complaints.

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.)
At first glance it looks like an actual tattoo gun tucked in to a garter, if you look a little closer though you can see it’s actually a very realistic looking 3d style tattoo. The detail and shadowing is exceptional on this design and would have definitely been done by a very talented artist. If you’re looking for a certain style of tattoo such as the one above a great place to find artists can be social media.
