Sometimes we don’t get what we want, or even what we asked for, and in the case of permanent tattoos this necessitates the use of the PicoSure laser for tattoo removal. We’ve all been there; you order chicken fajitas and they bring you beef, you ask for a “medium” steak and it comes back burnt. No worries, just send it back to the kitchen for a redo. Hair cut shorter than you wanted or died the wrong color? No problem, it will grow out. But what if you asked for something that couldn’t be swapped out? If it’s permanent what do you do?
Because what I do is remove unwanted tattoos all day with PicoSure, I hear a lot of horror stories about why a patient wants them gone. Today I’m focusing on one such example where the client asked for one thing but got something entirely different. This is probably the story I hear most often but in this case it’s much worse because the tattoo is hideous. Take a look at the photos below. The one on the left is what she asked for; the one on the right is what she got! Wow, not even close. Now I’m no artist but I’m pretty sure I could have done a better job. Fortunately, I’ve already treated this patient twice with PicoSure and her lousy tattoo is almost gone.
