Tattoo removal: the hot issue

Published on 2/16/2018
For additional information  Click Here

If you are like most people, you probably think tattoo removal is very difficult, painful and expensive.
Not so ...

But it is a fact that tattoo removal is a serious problem for many. I've just had a quick look - on average every month more than 74 000 people in the US, alone, do a Google search for "tattoo removal" ... so you are not alone.

You probably know already there are many methods of tattoo removal ...

Although laser clinics would have you think there's is the best method ...

Not necessarily so, although it's certainly a very expensive method of tattoo removal.

Consequently, some people fall for the offer of "cheap laser treatment"with a "Manufacturer Trained" technician.

Does that conjure up pictures of them attending company training?

Don't be lulled into a false sense of security - "Manufacturer Trained" means they have read the Instruction Manual that comes with the laser ...

And now they need clients to practice on ...

So the offer of cheap treatment is for their benefit, not yours - you are going to be the "guinea pig."

Read on for  a safe, inexpensive method of home tattoo removal most people have never heard of - yes, seriously.

It's a method I have been recommending for more than 6 years and ...

There's no chance of you being left with scars, no pain or burns no nasty chemicals.

It is

  • scientifically proven to work and
  • dermatologist approved ...

and it works

  • no matter what the colours are or
  • how much ink is in the tattoo, or
  • how new or old your tattoo is.

You can read my review here... 

Read on for facts on tattoo removal methods and costs ...

But let me tell you right now, it can take many months to remove a tattoo, unless you are going to choose one of the more barbaric methods ... then you will have months of healing instead.

Let's look at why some tattoos are more quickly removed than others.

Much depends on the position of the tattoo on the body ...

Those furthest from the heart, for example tattoos on the feet, take longer to remove, because there is less blood flow.

Other factors that influence how long tattoo removal takes depends on

  • the shape of the tattoo
  • the colours used
  • the age of the tattoo
  • type of ink used and
  • depth and concentration of ink used.

You probably know there are two types of tattoo - amateur and professional.

Amateur tattoos are usually easier to remove because they are not embedded so deeply in the second layer of skin like the professional tattoos. 
The type and composition of the ink used is important ... check it out here
One of the reasons for disasters with laser tattoo removal is because the operator has no way of knowing what type of tattoo ink was used in your tattoo.

Are you wondering how the body gets rid of tattoo ink?

Unless you are going to cut the tattoo out, the tattoo removal method breaks the ink down into tiny fragments, which is either

  • removed in the lymph system or
  • in the scabbing that takes place. 

How to remove an unwanted tattoo.

There's quite a choice of methods - how high is your pain threshold?

This is not a flippant question ...

It will influence your choice of tattoo removal method, as many of the methods still recommended today can involve pain, injury and scarring ...

Have a look at YouTube if you still need convincing ...

But read on for the solution I mentioned earlier - removing your tattoo at home without pain, injury or scarring :)

Tattoo removal methods you can carry out yourself.

The oldest methods of tattoo removal are dermabrasion and salabrasion.

These brutal methods work by scrubbing off the top layers of skin right down to the ink and then scrubbing it all out.

With dermabrasion, a type of pumice if used, though some people recommend apricot kernels, walnut shells etc

With salabrasion, salt is used as the abrasive ...

Ah yes, instructions usually say "minor bleeding" will occur ...

Warning: If you have a strong stomach you can see the reality of a half completed salabrasion ... it is not a pretty sight ... click here  
As you will see, much scrubbing still needs to be done to actually get the ink out - can you imagine how much it will sting with the salt and how painful it will be?

Alternative crazy "modern methods" for removing tattoos at home involve

  • slicing the tattoo off
  • burning with an iron or curling wand, or
  • bleaching with domestic or industrial bleach.

Naturally, permanent scarring is the result - you might need to consider the cost of plastic surgery to hide the scars.

Looking for professional help with tattoo removal?

  • Salabrasion and dermabrasion are still carried out today by dermatologists or medical professionals but under local anaesthetic, of course ...
  • As is cryosurgery, which is a form of dermabrasion but the blood flow is staunched with ice.
  • Excision involves cutting out the tattoo. Depending on size of the tattoo to be removed, this might all be done at once, or in stages - not recommended for a tattoo on the neck or wrist.
  • Some people prefer to use readily available acids - a dermatologist would be able to carry out this treatment for you, following all the safety guidelines.

Laser tattoo removal is the most popular method of tattoo removal today and for many, is preferable to all the barbaric methods detailed above.

There are many dangers associates with laser tattoo removal the clinics would rather you did not know about ...

which includes the cost.

This depends on

  • the number of sessions you need and
  • the cost per session which might vary greatly from the original estimate.

This may be partly because the laser operator has, as mentioned earlier, no idea of the composition of the inks used.

There is an industry standard for estimating the cost of tattoo removal ... check it out for yourself here.

If you have decided laser tattoo removal is the best option for you

  • check out the qualification of the laser operator. A medical qualifications does not qualify them them to use a laser ... 
  • check out the types of laser used by the clinic - do your own research on whether they will remove the colours in your tattoos. It has been known for clinics to start treatment and then have to refer you to another clinic to complete the treatment - an additional cost for you.
  • check how long they recommend between sessions - you can read what an industry insider told me in my free e-book (no opt in required)
  • check what pain relief is available at the clinic and the cost. Some clinics charge $50 extra a time for it.

And yes, some clinics are still claiming laser tattoo removal is pain-free or you will experience "slight discomfort."

The following quote is attributed to one member of staff from a tattoo removal clinic in NY:

“The laser pulse penetrates the skin and heats the pigment sometimes to a temperature of 900 degrees C.

“This causes the pigment to break down and migrate to the surface in the blister that forms when the water in the skin boils.

“You could throw kerosene on it (the tattoo) and light a match. That would be the same thing.” 

So, now you know so much more about the methods of tattoo removal ...

  • how would you like to remove your tattoo
  • at home
  • without pain or scarring, using
  • a dermatologist approved system which is
  • scientifically proven to work?

This system was designed by a Professional Tattoo Artist and Coverup Specialist.

He had seen far too many tattoo removal disasters in his studio ... 

So, when he and his wife divorced, and he wanted to remove her name from his chest and legs, he started experimenting with natural ingredients ... and the rest, as they say, is history.

You can read more of his story in my free ebook on tattoo removal methods ... it's on the top right ...did I say it's free? :)
