Laser Tattoo Removal – Too Expensive

July 4, 2010

The costs of tattoo removal are still too steep for a lot of folks who would’ve been otherwise interested in getting their tattoos removed a long time ago. This was my first thought of the morning as I sat down for breakfast.

I was thinking about a conversation I had with a friend, you see, when we met over drinks last night. He was kind of notorious back in our college days for sporting some of the most outrageous tattoos ever seen in our campus. He had purple and green dragons all over his back, as well as some snakes, if I remember correctly. To be honest, I couldn’t distinguish the snakes from the dragons, but then again, I was not interested in tattoos back in those days.

Getting back to our conversation, he told me that if tattoo removal wasn’t so expensive, he would’ve gone and erased the ink off his back a long time ago. I wasn’t sure why he wanted to do that, since his job as a car mechanic and part-time truck driver didn’t exactly restrict his freedom if he wanted to go on wearing his tattoos.

If he was working at a bank or in any other corporate job, sure, I’d understand completely. But being a mechanic and truck driver meant that he had plenty of opportunity for following his own “sense of style”, if you know what I mean.

I didn’t press him for the exact reason why he wanted to get rid of those tattoos, but I remember that he said something about regretting his decision to get so much ink done several years ago. He said that he would’ve been happy now with just one or two tattoos, but he went overboard, and so now he wants them all gone.

He also kept mentioning laser tattoo removal and how it was too expensive for him. He added that although he was making good money at his two jobs, he didn’t feel good about throwing it away on laser tattoo removal. Those were his exact words.

As I listened to my friend talk that night, I understood what he meant by laser tattoo removal being too expensive. I’ve heard and read about far too many people complaining about the same thing. These people have been thinking about getting their tattoos removed, but they never go through with it because of the prohibitive costs.

The costs of laser tattoo removal can go for $250 per session on average. And it doesn’t take only one session. Depending on the color and size of your tattoo, removing it could take anywhere from five to a dozen sessions. Even just five sessions can cost you $1,250 already, and that kind of money can go a long way towards rent, food, clothes, and other expenses which you and your family might need. Can you imagine spending that kind of money for removing your tattoo?

So that you may understand exactly why laser tattoo removal is so expensive, I’m going to talk about the factors and reasons why this tattoo removal procedure is murder on the wallet. That will be in my next post, so stay tuned for it!


Home Tattoo Removal – With a Black & Decker Sander?

June 27, 2010

I realize that a lot of people are looking for efficient tattoo removal methods, but this takes the cake. Going for a laser treatment may be expensive, but surely there are far better solutions than powering up your sander and using it on your tattoo, right?

Here is a crazy video showing exactly the kind of home tattoo removal technique I’m talking about.  Watch carefully as the “patient” lies down on a mat while the tattoo removal “specialist” goes to work on him with a sander.  That’s a power tool, for Pete’s sakes! (Click here to watch the video)

I just want to remind everyone that we are in no way endorsing this method of home tattoo removal for anyone. I am not sure if this video is a prank or they really used a power sander to get that tattoo off, but like I said, it’s a crazy thing to do and don’t try that at home or anywhere else. Can you imagine the infection and the scars that will surely result from using a power sander to remove your tattoo? Totally unbelievable, and I don’t know what in the world they were thinking.

If you want an efficient and affordable method for removing your tattoo, there are other ways to do it; plus it’s a lot safer. You can either go for laser tattoo removal, since that’s the standard nowadays, or opt for using a tattoo removal cream like Nuviderm. Now, I won’t lie to you and say that laser tattoo removal is not the best option out there, because to be perfectly honest, there are a lot of people that’s satisfied with the results.

However, there are at least three advantages of using a tattoo removal cream like Nuviderm to remove your tattoo. It’s easy to apply, it’s affordable, and it works.

Now, you might understand why tattoo removal creams are easier to use and apply than laser. After all, you don’t have to be a licensed surgeon to use it in your own home. There are no complicated devices and you don’t have to pick out which laser to use for what color. As you might know, laser tattoo removal is a complicated process because different colors of the tattoo need to be removed by different lasers.

Aside from being easier to apply, tattoo removal creams are a lot more affordable than going for laser tattoo removal. “How affordable?”, you might ask. Well, let’s take Nuviderm as an example. Just one ounce of Nuviderm is enough to remove or extremely fade a 3”x3” sized tattoo. A 1-oz. bottle of Nuviderm costs around $40.00. Compare that to just one session of laser tattoo removal, where you can expect to pay at least $100 for removing a small, black tattoo about the same size. That’s already a $60.00 savings right there! And when you consider that removing even a small tattoo requires at least three sessions, you’ll be spending around $300 just for removing that one small tattoo!

You really have to think about the options that are available to you first, before you go and try something like the video I shared with you earlier. That’s an extremely painful and dangerous method of removing a tattoo, and even if you want a cheaper solution to laser tattoo removal, using a power sander is just not the way to go.

Nuviderm Low Cost Tattoo Removal

May 1, 2010

Tattoo removal is a lengthy process, don’t believe anyone who says otherwise. How could something meant to be permanent be easily removed? Even state of the art Lasers require several expensive and painful sessions with no guarantee of satisfaction which is why Laser clinics offer no money back guarantees.

Tattoo removal cream, on the other hand, offers a simple, pain free form of tattoo removal except for one thing – the effectiveness of a tattoo removal cream product is very “iffy” . They contain nothing more than a variety of skin pigment lightening products that may actually lighten the top layer of skin covering the tattoo by removing or inhibiting the production of melanin, the chemical in the skin that determines a persons skin color, but by themselves they don’t lighten or remove tattoo ink.

Skin lightening chemicals most commonly found in tattoo removal cream includes hydroquinone, a suspected carcinogen banned in many Asian and European countries, alpha arbutin, kojic acid and bearberry extract. There is absolutely no medical evidence that any of these skin tone lightening chemicals have any effect whatsoever on tattoo ink. The best proof that they don’t work is the fact that not one tattoo removal cream manufacturer offers a real – no fine print exceptions – money back guarantee without major loop holes and difficult to meet restrictions except for one, and they only accept returns within 30 days that have not been opened, require a Return Authorization number that can never be acquired and require that the returned package be insured by the sender. Fail to meet any of these stringent requirements and they keep your money. For all intents and purposes their so called “guarantee” is just a marketing ploy to try and reassure potential buyers of a risk free purchase when in reality no money will ever be returned.

The truth is, removing a tattoo is a lengthy process that requires patience, care and determination.The main difference in tattoo removal options that actually work is the cost. One ounce of TCA contains the tattoo removal power of about $750.00 worth of Laser treatments and requires about the same amount of time. Put another way, Laser removal costs about 20 times the cost of TCA for an equivalent size tattoo. TCA, when applied as directed, will also be much less painful than the laser procedure.

One weakness of laser removal of tattoos is the color of ink used in the tattoo. Laser destruction of tattoo pigment is limited by the wavelength of the laser in use. Many bright colors of tattoo ink such as white, yellow, pink, light blue and light green are simply not easily treatable by laser.

In fact, using Nuviderm tattoo removal will aid the process of laser removal, if used first, because it will fade the tattoo making the job of the Laser much easier and less painful – less tattoo pigment means fewer Laser treatments and less pain because the faded tattoo pigment results in a less harsh effect on the skin by the Laser beam. Or, you could just finish the job with TCA and not even to go near a Laser clinic saving you the time, hassle and the expense of driving to and from a probably inconvenient Laser clinic location.

If you are looking  for a low cost tattoo removal product with a 6 month guarantee, next day shipping (except on weekends), an 800 toll free customer service line and is an effective alternative to laser tattoo removal then Nuviderm is your answer.

Nuviderm Tattoo Removal Reviews – Tattoo Removal Options

April 21, 2010

Having a tattoo injected into your body is a very serious decision since the tattoo will most likely remain in your body forever. On the flip side, deciding to remove a tattoo can be more serious because it can be painful and significantly more expensive than getting the tattoo in the first place, especially if the chosen method of removal is laser. Also, while it may have only taken an hour to put on, it will take months to remove.

Tattoo removal options including laser and excision are not what anyone would call a low cost tattoo removal. One of the most popular and certainly the least expensive methods is to use a tattoo removal treatment such as Nuviderm. A topical tattoo remover such as Nuviderm has become significantly more popular each year of the past decade and is now catching up with laser treatment in terms of usage. The main reason more and more people are deciding to use TCA tattoo removal is very simple: cost and effectiveness.

While laser treatments are effective on dark colors such as black, dark blue and other dark colors, they have a difficult time removing light colored tattoo pigment such as light blue, light green, yellow, pink and white. The light-colored tattoo pigments require more treatments and therefore increase the tattoo removal cost. Also tattoo removal treatments are considered an optional cosmetic procedure by insurance companies and therefore they do not cover the cost of tattoo removal.

A topical tattoo remover in the form of a cream is also an option, although some creams are somewhat effective, others have little or no effect on tattoo pigment in the second layer of skin because they do not have any ingredient in their composition that is capable of penetrating the skin to the depth of the tattoo pigment. An exception is a tattoo removal cream that is used in combination with exfoliation.

That being said, there is still a problem among the removal cream manufacturers of not having a guarantee, having a guarantee that is highly restricted or not honoring the guarantee offered. If for some reason the customer is not satisfied with the product it can be a roll of the dice as to whether they will receive a refund even if they follow the terms set forth by the manufacturer.

In the home tattoo removal industry Nuviderm is unsurpassed for customer service, both before and  after the sale. We also honor our 6  month guarantee without question.

Tattoo Removal Review – New Technology

January 25, 2010
New, easy to remove tattoo ink

Tattoo Removal Review - Easier Tattoo Removal

It is estimated that more than 45 million Americans have at least 1 tattoo. Recent polling indicates that approximately 50% of all men and women under the age of 25 have a tattoo, but about 20% of all people with a tattoo regret getting it and are looking for a form of tattoo removal.

Laser technology has made significant advances in recent years, but it still requires several visits and hundreds to thousands of dollars to remove a tattoo via laser, depending on the size and colors used in the design. Nuviderm has never made a secret of the fact that we always recommend laser removal if it is within your budget and we, of coarse, recommend Nuviderm if Laser is to expensive.

If you read our blog with any regularity you will also know that we constantly warn against using so called tattoo removal creams because they don’t work, cost to much for what you get (soft skin where you apply it) and tattoo cream manufacturer warranties are either non existent or so full of loop holes as to be worthless. Tattoo removal creams are nothing more than a basic cosmetic with skin pigment fading chemicals included to fade the skin above the tattoo, but not the tattoo itself.


Well, help is on the way although the pace may be a bit slow. A company called Freedom2Ink has been working on developing a new form of tattoo ink that requires about one half  the number of laser treatments for complete ink clearance.  They call this new tattoo pigment technology Particle Encapsulation and Enhancement (P2E) . Basically, the ink is encapsulated in small spheres that can be placed under the skin with  currently used tattoo equipment. The only difference is the ease with which it can be removed using current laser technology .

The bad news – after 10 years of development they have only perfected this technology using a biodegradable black pigment. Apparently  the the material used to make the encapsulating spheres is not compatible with currently used pigments and carriers so they estimate it will be several more years before they have a full color line available for use by the general tattoo loving public.

How It Works

The basic idea behind this product is that the biodegradable ink is micro-encapsulated in a plastic polymer bead. When the the laser strikes the bead it cracks open and the ink is released into the dermis where the tattoo resides and as a consequence of the release the body’s own natural immune system will help breakdown and dispose of the ink. The bead itself is hypoallergenic and will cause no allergic reaction or side effect.

Current tattoo pigments are not biodegradable, as seen here, which requires that they be repeatedly blasted by a laser over a much longer period of time in order to achieve maximum clearance. Many of the currently used pigments, the lighter colors in particular, are very difficult to remove and complete clearance using laser is impossible for many colors.

That is where Nuviderm has an advantage over current laser technology. Because Nuviderm is based on a medium strength cosmetic acid it removes all colors with equal efficiency, color makes no difference.

New Ink Specifics

  • Aftercare should be managed the same way, no special care is needed beyond what it normally done with current ink pigments tattoos.
  • Freedom2Ink is a premium ink and will therefore cost significantly more. This price will be passed on the the consumer.
  • The ink will be packaged in 5 ml bottles (1/6 ounce).
  • Tattoo removal costs using laser will be reduced by up to 50%
  • It is permanent yet removable
  • Colors claimed to be made from the highest quality FDA approved USP grade ingredients.

The Nuviderm Blog

Unlike other at home tattoo removal products, Nuviderm is concerned as much about new developments in tattoo removal as we are in selling our own product. I you go through our blog entries you will see several entries about new technologies on the horizon as well as what to avoid when purchasing a home use tattoo removal product. We are constantly researching new ways to improve tattoo removal techniques and report on these new technologies to our readers.

How many of our competitors encourage the use of other products when they know a better method of tattoo removal exists? None.

Nuviderm has alway encouraged the use of laser removal as the gold standard for tattoo removal. Unfortunately most people with tattoo regret cannot afford to use laser,  in which case we recommend Nuviderm.

When researching tattoo removal logon to, or for the latest in unbiased coverage of technological advances in tattoo removal.

We also blog about many strange or humorous tattoo related subjects,  unscrupulous tattoo removal products and manufactures and, of course, the benefits of using Nuviderm tattoo removal.

So, logon from time to time and catch up on the happenings in the world of tattoos and tattoo removal and remember, Nuviderm works.

Nuviderm Review – Customer Complaint

January 14, 2010
Smiling customer service rep

At Nuviderm we do our best to handle complaints

Who can you trust when looking for a reputable company that sells an effective tattoo removal product? Unfortunately there is no rating system for all the different types of tattoo removal products and procedures and no ranking system on which company says what they mean, means what they say, honors their refund policy (if they have one), and in general treats their customers with courtesy, honesty and respect.

A good place to research all tattoo removal companies, their product effectiveness and  guarantees offered  is to monitor forums and read the essential parts of the company websites you are considering buying from.

Now, no company is going to please 100% of their customers because, human nature being what it is, it’s darn near impossible to please everyone, mistakes are made, and some people are just difficult to deal with no matter what the circumstances.

Tattoo removal is a slow process so Nuviderm Tattoo Removal offers a 6 month money back guarantee. This gives their customers enough time to see results.  They can determine if  the product is actually working to do what they want –  fade the tattoo enough for a cover up,  prefade before using laser to save money on fewer laser treatments or to continue with Nuviderm until the tattoo has completely disappeared.

According to Jonathan Scott, a retired tattoo artist and expert on tattoo removal products and techniques who currently consults for Nuviderm,  even though Nuviderm was the first home tattoo removal product to offer a 6 month guarantee, (much to the chagrin of their competitors)  they still occasionally receive complaints that the  time period is not long enough. Never mind that just about every other tattoo product on the market either has no guarantee, a 30 day guarantee or a so called guarantee that is so full of loop holes favoring the manufacturer that the effect is to have no guarantee at all.

Scott went on to say that any tattoo removal product that truly works will show results  within six months. Any tattoo removal product, especially the creams, which only offer 30 days are not being honest with the public. He noted that, in his opinion, there is no tattoo removal cream on the market that can actually remove a tattoo. He says they market to people uneducated in the ingredients needed to remove a tattoo and the time it takes to show results. Modern tattoo pigments and the depth they are deposited in the skin make a 30 day guarantee impossibly short. In his opinion it shows the manufacturer knows their product won’t work and reduces the chance they will actually refund any money.

Scott also emphasized that rubbing a cream onto a tattoo does nothing but give temporary peace of mind to the person using the product and fatten the bank account of the company manufacturing and selling the product. One such company with a short guarantee specializes in convincing phone in customers they have not given the product enough time to work and that they should buy another 1 or 2 month supply, not reminding them that the warranty period for all subsequent purchases began with the original purchase. By the time the customer realizes they have made no progress the warranty period is no longer in effect, in essence they have been had.

“At least we give our customers plenty of time to make a determination as to whether our product works for them or not”, he said.

He explained that skin pH effects the performance of Nuviderm. Customers with a higher than normal skin pH do not see the quality of results as someone whose skin pH is normal or a bit lower than average. Fortunately most people fall into the latter category and have no problem seeing results within the warranty period. This is borne out from the relatively low return rate of about 8% of all customers.

Tattoo removal, whatever the method used, is a time consuming process that requires patience and diligence.

Home Tattoo Removal – Fact vs. Fiction

December 26, 2009
Tattoo removal fact vs. fiction

Tattoo Removal Fact vs. Fictions

Home tattoo removal, also known as Do It Yourself tattoo removal,  can be a very difficult subject to master for a person who has decided to remove a tattoo, but cannot afford laser tattoo removal.

There are so many different kinds of tattoo removal options sold for the do it yourself person that the final decision can be almost impossible to make. It requires research on all  the various techniques and a healthy skepticism of the claims made by some of the  marketing campaigns of the product manufacturers. Most people will rule out Dermabrasion and Salabrasion as to harsh, and Cold Steel Surgery as to radical. The final decision usually boils down to this: should I choose one of the many tattoo removal creams or should I choose one of the  skin peel products?

What’s the difference?

To differentiate between the creams and the peels you must first understand how each works, then determine if claims made can be believed.

Home tattoo removal creams all claim to be effective, but different from the other tattoo removal creams they are competing against for market share. All creams contain one or several skin pigment fading chemicals, sometimes referred to as a skin bleach, as the main ingredient,  combined with skin conditioners, moisturizers and sometimes a sunblock and an exfoliate or scrub.

Skin pigment faders, or skin bleaching agents, are just that – products used to fade or bleach skin color for many reasons  including to remove age spots,  freckles or to even out skin tone in the hope of looking more attractive.  What they don’t tell you is these products are physically incapable of removing tattoo pigment. As a matter of fact they blatantly lie about the effectiveness of their product. These products do one thing and that is fade or bleach skin pigment which resides in the top layer of skin, they cannot and do not fade or remove tattoo pigment. All you have to do is read the ingredient list and Google each ingredient to find out exactly what it does.

Proof of this is the very fact that there has not been one medical study that confirms the claims made by any of the tattoo topical removal creams.  If such a study existed you would know about it because every tattoo cream removal manufacturer would be using the study as proof that their product truly works. Frankly, they rely on the ignorance and gullibility of the public when it comes to tattoo removal and how difficult it really is.

Another telltale sign of B.S. in the marketing of the creams is their product guarantee. Many have no guarantee. Some offer a guarantee that becomes void unless you return the product in the allotted 30 day time period in the original unopened package. That means if you actually open the box, try the product and are dissatisfied you have voided the warranty.  The best known of the tattoo cream products offers a guarantee, but then they also state the guarantee does not apply to retail sales, but they don’t tell you where you can buy at wholesale.

It all boils down to not wanting to give refunds – these manufacturers know their product claims are false or grossly overstated. If they had to make refunds to all their unsatisfied customers they wouldn’t have the money necessary to run those expensive radio ads or advertise on Google and Yahoo. They rely on the constant crop of new first time do it yourself tattoo removers who they convince to buy their product with slick marketing campaigns.

The only claim a tattoo removal cream or gel manufacturer makes that is true is their product will not scar, it can’t penetrate the skin deep enough to create scar tissue which also means it can’t penetrate the skin deep enough to remove tattoo pigment. It’s unfortunate, but tattoos don’t magically disappear by rubbing on a cream and the form of exfoliation that some of these products  include is also bogus. Exfoliation of that type might remove a temporary tattoo, but certainly not a real, permanent tattoo done by a professional tattoo artist, the pigment’s to deep.


The only home tattoo removal products that work (excepting true dermabrasion and salabrasion) are the cosmetic acids such as TCA. One of those companies  sells a 2 dram bottle – (FYI -16 drams equals 1 ounce) for $38.00, but it is close to 100% pure TCA. Also this company does not offer a guarantee .

We (Nuviderm) do not recommend using that strength and will not sell that strength. We sell 1 ounce bottles of a 50% concentrate  for $39.95 with which we give precise instructions on how to dilute for proper TCA tattoo removal that is not going to  leave a scar when properly used. We also offer live consultations via an 800 number on our website. No other home tattoo removal manufacturer does that.

We know our product works and offer a 6 month guarantee that can be accessed and read via the main navigation tabs on every page of our website. We don’t try to hide our guarantee.

TCA works by peeling a very thin layer of skin each treatment cycle with a treatment cycle being 3 – 6 weeks long. It’s not a fast way to remove a tattoo, but then there is no fast way to remove a tattoo other than by scalpel. The average 3″x3″ professionally made tattoo can take from 8 – 10 months with home made tattoos going faster because of inferior ink and tattoo technique.

Bottom line – if you can’t afford laser don’t waste your money on any cream on the market today. Either save your money for laser or buy Nuviderm for home tattoo removal.

Nuviderm works – the active ingredient has been proven effective in 2 separate medical studies.

Tattoo Removal Options – IPL

October 13, 2009
IPL can also be used for Tattoo Removal

IPL can also be used for Tattoo Removal

Although tattoo removal is not high on the list of researchers looking for ways to improve the human condition, there are at least three high tech methods of tattoo removal including Laser, Skin Seeding and IPL.

Pioneered by Dr. Patrick Bitter, IPL tattoo removal is becoming a popular method of tattoo removal among Dermatologists and skin care professionals. IPL emits high intensity light pulses (not lasers) to penetrate the skin and do away with tattoo pigment. As a result of this process there may be some scarring involved along with dark or light spots on the skin depending on the skin color of the patient. In many cases the light or dark spots fade with time.

IPL therapy is not the same as laser therapy. IPL sends short bursts of intense light through a prism into the skin and causes the tattoo pigment to break up and be absorbed by the body. It is said the farther from the heart the tattoo is the longer the healing process when using IPL to remove a tattoo.
Light skinned people of European descent with dry, non-oily skin make the best candidates for ipl. Dark skinned nationalities have a higher chance of hypopigmentation of the treated area.

The average professional tattoo requires 5 or more treatments with dark pigmented tattoo requiring the most number of treatments. The treated area swells and turns a pale color immediately following treatment, but the swelling subsides quickly followed by blistering and scab formation. Skin tones return to normal after about two weeks and the treated area should be protected from the suns’ rays for six weeks following the treatment.

Overall IPL is very safe with less than a 2% chance of scarring or pigmentation change.

IPL is new and has yet to reach its full potential.  If high tech methods are to expensive for you at this time Nuviderm offers an effective and affordable method of tattoo removal as evidenced by this testimonial:

November 8, 2008
Just wanted to drop a line to let the staff know that I’m into my 4th or 5th treatment on all five of my small tattoos, and Nuviderm is working great! I could not be happier. I regret ALL of my ugly lapses of judgment and thought I would have to spend thousands on laser removal. Obviously, not true. One of the ones on my chest is almost completely gone, and the others have significantly faded or broken apart thanks to Nuviderm. Thank you sooo very much, I am a complete believer!!! Regret getting my tattoos, but do not regret taking a chance with your Nuviderm tattoo removal system.

Try Nuviderm, it works.

Nuviderm Fade and Tattoo Removal : Lesson 1

September 15, 2009
Nuviderm Fade and Tattoo Removal says do your homework

Nuviderm Fade and Tattoo Removal says do your homework

We are always getting mail from people asking questions about Nuviderm tattoo removal – specific questions about the removal process, advice on use of Nuviderm during pregnancy, while breast feeding, best time to begin a removal, or the minimum age of a tattoo before using Nuviderm tattoo remover.
This morning we received a question about removing natural skin pigment forming a birthmark and using Nuviderm to remove it.

Here is the question:


I have a birthmark on which I have already tried laser in an attempt at removal. Will Nuviderm work on my birthmark?

Thank you,




TCA, the active ingredient in Nuviderm is used every day by Cosmetic Surgeons and Dermatologists to remove fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, remove or reduce acne scars and some birth marks. Since we don’t know the specifics of your birthmark pigmentation we suggest you contact a Dermatologist for professional advice on using TCA for your specific situation.
There may be a skin fade cream that might help. Fade creams inhibit or stop melanin production and may work for you in this instance. Fade creams have their place, but as tattoo removal agents they do not and cannot reach the dermis layer of skin where the tattoo pigment resides. This is something else you may consult a Physician about.

Nuviderm Customer Service


The reasons for blogging about this are:

1). We always give straight, no B.S. answers to our customers or potential customers. Most of our competitors would not have responded and the remainder would have tried to make a sale without knowing all the facts about the birthmark. We make referrals all the time when we think there might be a better way or if more information is required to make an informed decision.

2). We suggested that possibly a skin fade cream might work, but to also consult with her physician about this before proceeding because of the many different types of birthmarks. Some would be unaffected by melanin inhibiting chemicals used in skin fade creams just as tattoo pigment us unaffected by skin fade creams claiming to be tattoo removal creams.

When researching tattoo removal don’t fall for all the hype on the internet about all the different products available.  Laser works, IPL works, Nuviderm works and is the affordable, effective alternative to laser. Dermabrasion  and  Salabrasion also work but are very slow, painful and will definitely leave a scar. So called tattoo removal creams and gels DO NOT WORK! They fade skin pigment, not tattoo pigment.

For cost effective results backed by a 6 month guarantee use Nuviderm. It is the only Doctor tested and approved Home Tattoo Removal product on the market.

Try Nuviderm, it works.
