Deal is only good for the laser that does black ink. Also it's ONLY for one session which isn't clear in the description.

I just had my first session at Tataway on South Street in Boston to get a tattoo on my foot removed (black in, 6 inches or so, I got it in 2009). I was really nervous prior to this appointment, but immediately Chelsea made feel at ease. I showed up early to my appointment, and was seen immediately. Chelsea answered all my questions, was patient and had no problem allowing me to take a break in the middle of the laser session. Yes, it hurts like crazy getting a tattoo removed, but all in all, the laser was only on my foot for 30 seconds. While I'm not looking forward to going through this again, I know I made the right decision coming to Tattaway. What I also love is the fact that they give you a number you can call or text 24/7 with any questions you have. They're great!

I feel like I experienced a real bait-and-switch with Tataway. Prior to buying the Groupon, I did research online and spoke to a tattoo artist, giving me reason to believe that my tattoo could be removed in approximately four sessions. When I saw this Groupon, I quickly scooped it up, figuring that it would cover the majority of my treatments. However, when I went to Tataway, I was told that my Groupon was for the older laser, which requires 10-15 sessions for removal! Nowhere on the Groupon was this mentioned. The other, Pico laser, would remove a tattoo in 4-8 treatments. Of course the Pico is more expensive tho, so they gave me ONE Pico treatment in exchange for my "3-session" Groupon.

The groupon does not apply for the pico laser which is what you need if your tat has color, but the place and people who work there are great

I purchased the groupons because of their location (same building I work in), but they changed locations to a very inconvenient spot for me. Now I can't use the last groupon.

Extremely professional, easy to get to and virtually painless. I have had tattoo removal done elsewhere, Tataway far exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them.

Carmen and Chelsea are both very friendly and professional. They have helped me understand and anticipate the process of tattoo removal.

From Our Editors

Working as a laser hair-removal specialist, Carmen Vanderheiden heard a common sentiment from the clients who had tattoos: "Please, hit it. I want it gone." The Tataway founder told the Back Bay Patch that as many as 80% of these tattooed clients asked her not to shield their ink from the hair-zapping laser. Since opening her tattoo-removal parlor, Vanderheiden has found out why, listening keenly to the story beneath each inky regret. Some clients have told her that they're tired of a tattoo's design or its placement on their body. Others have confided that the tattoo feels like a stain from some painful time in their life.

These stories make no difference to Tataway's tattoo-removal chart. During free consultations, the clinically published Kirby-Desai scale tells Vanderheiden the number of laser treatments each client can expect based on skin type, lifestyle, the tattoo's pigments, location, and number of spelling errors. After each treatment, topical ointments and sterile dressing help sooth the skin and prevent infection. The laser also takes to the road on a mobile unit–you can check out its current location here.
