Client Tattoo Removal Stories - Carl's Story – NAAMA Studios


London-based engineer Carl tried a number of different laser tattoo removal techniques before discovering NAAMA. Here is his story.

The tattoo that brought me to NAAMA is one that I got a few months ago. It is a Buddha’s head that I thought would look nice on my chest. Actually there’s nothing wrong with the tattoo, I just didn’t like it. And the ink in the tattoo was giving me an adverse effect, it was giving me a rash.

I have had tattoos for 20 years and have experienced three different techniques involved in tattoo removal, the Q-Switched laser, the Nd: YAG, and most recently the PicoSure. All of them are aggressive and all of them are damaging to melanated skin or black/brown skin because they just go through your pigmentation. They’ll get rid of the tattoo, but you will be left with a scar and or loss of pigment.

I found out about NAAMA on Instagram originally, and I read a little bit about it and I thought it was a con, but something said to me, what have I got to lose? Let me have a conversation. When I first reached out I found the team to be very warm and gentle and they were almost like a family. That made me feel comfortable.

My experience at NAAMA has been a dream compared to the other treatments I’ve had. It’s gone in five treatments and it was a big Buddha’s head. Probably my second biggest tattoo. I’m still amazed. The tattooist that I went to was amazed. I wish NAAMA was about 20 years ago!
