So this is my crappy webcam pic of my lasered tattoo. I would post a better pic, but it's hard to take a good pic of my own shoulder. Anyway, the tattoo should start fading once the inflammation goes down. I'll probably have to do the treatment 3-5 more times before it's gone completely.

They were really nice where I had it done. I went directly after work. The nurse (and she was an RN) explained how it worked, and all the risks to my skin (discoloration, keloids, "sunburn" feeling). I looked through a book of before, after, and in-process pics. Some stuff didn't completely come out - I guess green is more difficult to remove. But there were some impressive ones - a fair-skinned girl with a large dark tattoo on her shoulder, completely gone. I don't care if there's still traces of this, as long as it's not really visible. Someday I'll cover the whole area with something beautiful.

She asked if i wanted to start that day, and of course i did. It hurt. Not unbearably, and it was quick, maybe 10 minutes, but damn. like being branded many small times. Then she applied a bandage and gave me the aftercare instructions - pretty much the same as tattoo aftercare.

I'm really glad I'm having this done.

And i'm still craving something sweet - maybe I'll hit Jamba Juice before school and try to avoid this junk food craving.

    Sometimes you have to go 2000 miles to get to the one. So worth it. Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

    It's already getting wild out here, and I've completely re-evaluated my definition of "behaving myself". All the fun. Posted via LiveJournal…
