I am currently going through the process of having several tattoos removed. I am driving over 4 hours away to a dermatologist who specializes in these procedures. It cost $400 per session (a session is about 15 minutes) he currently is working on three different tattoos in those 15 minutes. It is very painful but thank goodness it only last 15 minutes and very expensive. I have one tattoo that the doctor thinks will take 4-6 sessions so that one tattoos is going to end up costing me any where from $1600-2400 to get it removed. A very costly mistake. If there is anyone out there considering a tattoo please read this first. Not only is there pain and a lot of cost after the treatments a lot of times I get blistering and have to be careful about clothing rubbing on the blisters. If you are considering a tattoo please think twice.

Well I don’t know the exact amount, but my cousin removed her tatoo on her ankle. It is expensive and yes, it was painful, because they had to sort of burn it off.
