Anyone have a tattoo removed with creams or anything (inkbusters.com, tat2bgone, etc.)? Not by laser surgery?
If so, which is the best brand? And if you had laser surgery, how much did that cost?

That sucks. Not even Inkbusters.com, this skin peel stuff? I've gotta get rid of this thing.
Anyone know of a good laser surgery place nearby? I haven't found any.

Is this a case of "I absolutely have to get rid of this thing or someone is going to kill me" or would getting it changed/covered up do the trick? It will cost you a lot less to get it covered up than to get it removed.

Laser surgery is expensive. If you really have to get it removed, check with some of the local tattoo shops and see if they know of anyone locally that can do laser removal.

Hmm, Would self mutilation work to remove tats? I can see myself now digging out the ink. Oh the joy.

That actually sounds tempting since the choices seem slim right now. I'll just have to choose one of the few. Eh, i'll figure something out to get rid of this thing.

actually, if i recall, that is a treatment that is used, or at least used to be used. they inject it under your skin to eat the ink.

Cover it with something else if its the design you now hate. Save for laser surgery otherwise.

if you're still looking for a solution I was looking through google and found this...

I've also seen tattoo makeup if you're just wanting to cover it up for the moment until you can find something that works...
