ink be gone

i'm new to this community and have just had my first tattoo removal session. i've got 6 tattoos currently, three of them very large. i've had them all for about 2.5 - 3 years but the one i wanted gone was on my inner left forearm, about the size of a baseball.

the nurse asked me if i'd like to put some anesthetic cream on but i declined since it would take an hour to take effect so instead i used some ice on the area for 5 minutes before the actual session. at first i was terrified because i thought it would hurt something shocking but i was pleasantly surprised that it didn't hurt half as much as i thought it would. it felt very much like hot bacon grease being splattered on my arm, but it wasn't intolerable. it's a wee bit tender now but definitely worth it. i will be paying $125 per session (NZ currency) and it should take no longer than 5 sessions. i can't wait for it to be gone :)
