    It's right above my elbow on the back of my arm, just below my tricep.

    That picture is a couple of years old. The tattoo is a little more faded now.

    1 hour up to 3000 hours

    That's the best answer you're going to get with the info you're giving us.

    I've never posted in this forum, and if I knew anything about the subject, I wouldn't be asking. What other information do you need?

    I would like to do it the quickest way possible.

    What do you want to cover it with?

    In my city's police department, there is the rule of no visible tattoos shown while in a short-sleeve uniform.

    I would like to have it look like it did before I got the tattoo.

    Than you want it removed not covered. Laser removal is pretty expensive. There's no set price. You'd need to go visit a dermatologist in your area and have them recommend someone to you. You're probably looking at close to 2K.

    black ink like that isn't easy to remove. depending on how heavy handed the guy was with the ink it may take many, many sessions to completely remove it. and there will most likely be some scarring, esp if you tan.

    Actuially black is one of the easiest to remove. If it was done professionally (and competently) you should be able to have it removed in a half dozen or so sessions. Each session should run you about $150 or so - you will be looking at a minimum of $1000 to remove it.

    Take qa look at how efficient the new lasers ars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYO-zUp3kwE

    Sounds like a better idea than spending $$$ and removing something that you might still like, but are being forced to cover.

    Its true...

    I have a buddy in law enforcement that gets a hard time for his ink...

    There are so many possibilties...I have a guy that works for me that wears an NFL type sleeve to cover his sleeve...its like under armor

    I wouldnt remove a tattoo I like for "the man" anyways....I understand the need for a job...but there are ways around having laser surgery...
