Started my treatment on a tattoo on my knuckles and hand. Was told that after each treatment the price would go down for each treatment, but it hasn't. I've had 2 treatments and after not seeing results after my 1st treatment I told them my issue and they offered me a free ""test spot"" where they did another laser dime size treatment to the same area. I went back after 6 weeks and paid for another treatment and still havent seen any results at all. After 3 treatments and not seeing any changes in the tattoo I would not recommend this place to anybody. Save your time and money by going somewhere else

I am getting my huge tattoo removed on my back, it's about half my body my mid section, I like this place the most. I looked around @ the other tattoo laser removal places to get others opinions, on what kind of laser I should use, there prices, and find out what I felt more comfortable with. Mad dog is charging me 550 to get my piece removed, which is a darn good deal, other places charged 700-1,200, or around that. (you can see the tattoo @ Facebook search Merry Whitney, the really bad looking picture of the laser tattoo removal was from that other place I talk about later) It really is a big piece but I was looking for the best price, and the laser that would leave no scaring or little, since I am in the entertainment industry, my looks count. Michelle the person who does my laser removal, she is professional, and understanding of your needs, or pain going through the process. It's literally the worst pain I have ever felt on my body. Which is why I get pain meds prescribed from my doctor. I found the best way for me to be able to get through the session which lasts about 1 hour to 1.5 hours, is not talk to much unless we are doing a area that doesn't hurt as much, like the color, and take deep breaths, and when it really hurts count to 10, over and over. They put numbing cream on you before you go, but the pain is so intense sometimes I wondered if it worked, I'm sure it does though, some got into my mouth once and my lips where numb. I tried this other place which was closer up north, where I live, (later I found out they opened a location up north, and have one down south) and gave me a lower price @ the time, and had a newer laser. I didn't like it to much, me and the girl where arguing the whole time, b.c. she said it would take a hour or so to do my pieces, but it took a hour to do 2 small pieces, b.c. the laser they had was needle point, and Mad dogs it maybe nickel, or quarter, I don't really look @ the laser that much, but it covers more ground then a needle point. The other place also didn't put ice on the area that just gets laser, so having to sit there felt horrible, she kept saying you can't do that, it will affect how the color fades. Then she put this tight bandage over my wrist that just had laser, and that felt horrible, my arm was pounding from the burn and I know was starting to blister, the extra pressure wasn't nice on the wound. The girl @ the other place was acting like a huge B*T*H. All in all mad dog is the best place I experienced so far, and I asked around. The people who work there are nice also, and understanding, they will work with you on pricing, where other places are stubborn. They treat you as if you are valued, not just as a customer, but as a person, they care about your input and opinion on your situation your going in for. I just got my 4th session done and it's fading, well, but I don't think it could fade fast enough for me, lol I wait b.c. I have to, but I can't wait for my tattoos to be gone forever! yay! One time I tried to tip and they didn't except it, which was sweet of them, so I am writing a good review to repay the good service. That was nice of them b.c. you know how sometimes, people shove the tip jar in your face like HELLO, I don't like to feel pressured to give a tip, and they didn't do that, they just gave me good service that made me want to tip.

I have been seeing Jessica for laser tattoo removal for several months. She's so sharp and professional, and best of all, my unwanted tattoo is really fading! Mad Dog is housed inside Elements Laser Spa downtown. I never have difficulty parking on a weekday afternoon, and the spa itself is very clean, and nicely decorated. I work in the medspa field, so I did a lot of research before choosing Mad Dog. They are definitely the best place to go in Austin for this service. I also love their email confirmation system. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

I just finished my fourth laser session at Mad Dog. I'm getting the results I want at an affordable price. The staff is great and are very professional. They have licensed professionals and a doctor on staff overseeing the treatment and they are taking great care to remove my tattoos without permanently damaging me. I'm a tattoo artist and I want my skin to still be tattooable. I really feel that Mad Dog is taking the utmost care of me and I am happy to say that I trust them with all of my tattoo removal. I'm not one to dote, but I'm just very impressed with their service and I highly recommend them. Thanks!

I am very happy with Mad Dog Tattoo Removal. The employees there have been very good about explaining the process of tattoo removal and exactly what to expect and how it all works. The nurse was really gentle when doing the treatment since it has a bit of a sting. Their doctor sat down with me and went over the tattoo removal and didn't even charge me! I felt like they were really thorough, and they really care about their clients. Plus my tattoo has already lightened after just 2 treatments! I am very happy with them, next i plan on getting some other laser treatments they offer :)
