I myself have many regrets and spontaneous ‘good ideas’ in the form of unwanted tattoos which lead me to my new found career in laser tattoo removal. I first considered tattoo removal some five years ago now, but it was always an afterthought and not a lot of research went into it; until now that is!
As I underwent work on my new tattoo sleeve design it made me more aware of how much I actually hate many of my other tattoos. I would ask my photographers to photoshop them off any photos that I had done on modelling assignments and the more I saw myself without them the more determined I became to get them removed. I am normally extremely impatient and very spontaneous yet when it came to looking into laser tattoo removal I discovered a passion for the whole process and found myself wanting to learn more and more about it. I was like a sponge, taking it all in! Before I knew it I was not only researching on how it works but how to become a laser technician and I got drawn in like a moth to a flame. Once I had done my research on all of the different types of lasers, how they work, different specifications and what results they achieve I had found my new ‘baby’ and so I set off alongside my husband to go and get trained up on the laser before purchasing it. Bringing the laser home that day I was like a child at Christmas :-) I quickly got booked onto the ‘Core of Knowledge’ training course and again was blown away by all the information and knowledge that came with it. Who would have thought that at the age of thirty one I would be studying photons, electrons, neutrons etc. It was a pretty intense training course not only studying lasers and light energy but skin anatomy too and then the two combined to give extensive knowledge of how they work together and the effects of lasers on all sorts of skin types. It was amazing and I loved every minute of it, taking my exam was rather nerve racking but I passed with an 89% pass mark :-)
So here I am, in ownership of a laser and a qualification that says I know how to use it. I had the knowledge but lacked the experience and so given my impatience, owning a laser, being fully qualified and having unwanted tattoos myself, guess who was first in the firing line? Yes. Me :-) and so I set to work on myself. The laser is operated by a foot pedal the same as a tattoo gun, so I’m stood there pointing the laser at my unwanted tattoo but there was no way at that moment that my brain was anywhere near wanting to send the signal to my foot to hit that pedal. My heart was pounding, my palms getting sweaty and temperature rising I was in somewhat of a state until my husband politely told me to get a grip. What the hell! I hit the pedal and to my surprise it was not that bad at all, in fact I had now got the bug for using my new laser and so I set to work on my husband and then friends and family. Since then my clients have seen impressive results and my work has been hugely praised with upmost thanks and brilliant reviews and recommendations.
