Star tattoos on arm before/after laser
Star tattoos on arm before/after laser

I love this place! I had two tattoos on on each arm that I got when I was 17. Now being 30 it became annoying to cover up everyday for work. I ended up doing a lot of research and came across Tattoo Removal Laser Clinic. I made the appointment and was impressed by the friendly and clean environment. I have felt like a valued customer over the years of tattoo removal. I have had two children since I started the removal process so I had to start and stop process in between children. They never pressured me or over sold any of their services. Which has made me very comfortable with the staff. One tattoo is completely gone after 4 treatments. The other tattoo has one more treatment and it is gone!! I have referred many friends, colleagues and total strangers. I have no scarring and I am completely satisfied. Someone that has seen my tattoos over the years can't make out what there was originally. Worth every dollar!! Thank you Tattoo Removal Laser Clinic!! Melissa G.
