Astonished to discover there are laser tattoo removal dangers?

Since laser tattoo removal first became available in the 1990’s, it has become the most popular way to get rid of a tattoo.

And there are plenty of customers 🙂 Surveys show that more than 50% of the people who have a tat later regret it and want it removed.

The sad fact is that while it is very easy and relatively inexpensive to get at tattoo, removal can be very costly and take months, often years.

Then there is the method of removal to choose…

  • Some methods are more painful than others.
  • Some leave more scars than others.
  • Some are much more expensive than others.

Struggling to work out the cost of laser tattoo removal?

Let me help 🙂

Worried by many of the tattoo removal before and after pictures?

Prefer people can’t see you’ve had a tattoo removed ? Of course.

Sadly, though, in some cases, the results are disappointing – some people would say disastrous.

This can be for many reasons …

Did you know know that tattoo inks are classified as cosmetics?

This means they are subject to regulation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

But manufacturers are not required to reveal their ingredients or conduct trials 

And the FDA has noted that many ink pigments used in tattoos are “industrial strength colors suitable for printers’ ink or automobile paint.”

Heavy metals, for example, mercury, lead, and copper may be used for colour.

If you live in California, your tattoo parlour must warn you if the pigment contains heavy metals, which are known to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive problems.

With so little regulation, there are many different formulas in use. This, of course, makes tattoo removal risky. So…

It’s important to remember there are few guarantees when it comes to tattoo removal. There are two certainties though:

  • it will take time and
  • it will cost money.

Stay with me here … it isn’t all gloom and doom!

There is a solution – an inexpensive tried and tested solution which may be just what you are looking for 🙂

But first, read on to find advice and tips on the best known tattoo removal methods to help you decide which method is best for you.
