About Ian and RueTattoo.com

Hey there! My name’s Ian, and I want to thank you for checking out my site and everything I’ve shared about my tattoo removal journey.

When I was 20 years old, I tapped into the infinite wisdom shared by all 20-year-olds and got an almost two-foot cross (61cm) tattooed across my torso. I’ve always been the kind of person to “go big or go home”, and it really bit me in the a** this time. As it turns out, tattoos are kind of permanent.

Look at that idiot.

Within two years, I no longer wanted a head-turning, red and black tattoo plastered across the front of my body. I began researching tattoo removal. In June 2016 (eight years after getting it), I finally mustered up the courage and started the removal process. It’s been a long journey, and as I create this site, I’m still going in for treatments every few weeks.

I chose “Rue Tattoo” for the name of this site because, if you’ve found your way here, you probably rue the day that you went under the needle for one of your tattoos, too. Just know that you’re in good company, and I’m here to help you every way that I possibly can. Just reach out using my contact page, and I’ll do what I can to help!
