………Before………………………………….Day 48…………………………………Day 34

I was planning on re-applying the TCA this week, but late last week I went swimming in a pool and the chlorine made my tattoo sting. The stinging was surprisingly pretty bad, which made me really nervous; so, I decided to hold off a week. The directions says it should be 6-10 weeks before one should re-apply. I’m right within the time line to re-apply, and as of right now I’m planning on re-applying sometime next week.

After inspecting my tattoo this week I have noticed that my tattoo is becoming to appear blotchy. There are little sections in the black area that are fading. I haven’t been able to notice any change or fading to any of the colored areas yet. The scar-like area around the right hand side of the tattoo is less noticeable as the days pass. I think I’m going to pick up some scar ointment at the store for the next application.

Nuviderm At Home Tattoo Removal: Week Five (First Application) May 7, 2008

………Day 19………………………………Day 34…………………………Before Application

The colors are still darker than when I started, which is unfortunate. The redness is nearly gone. The distinct line around the right hand side of the tattoo is clearly visible and could very well be a permanent scar, we’ll see. All the drip marks are barely noticeable. The areas that are reddish in color on day 19, are more of a pale tan color (close to skin color) now. There isn’t anymore peeling at this point.
