  • Is it painful?...It depends on your tolerancy level.

    Is it expensive? ...It depends on the size of the tattoo and which shop you get it done at. Bigger tattoos cost more and some shops charge more than others.

  • Ohhhh, but there is this new stuff called Wrecking Balm. It's like a cream you put on several times a week. I don't know if it works, but it's worth looking into. I am sure it's cheaper than a cosmetic procedure. I am sure you can research it online. :)

  • I do permanent makeup and I am currently removing a tattoo for someone. There are several different methods of tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal can cost $3000 on up. Professional TCA peels and microdemabrasion is said to help lighten a tattoo but I haven't seen any successful results. The method I am using is with an ink removing solution and my tattoo gun. The solution is expensive and the company will only sell to licensed professionals. I've been doing peels between tattoo removal visits. I'm charging $150 per visit and expect it to take 10 to 15 visits. The tattoo I am working on has become much lighter but I still have several more visits before it is completely gone.
