So I went to a local shop and the guy told me he could remove a big tattoo I have with a removal method that involves a using a tattoo gun and tattooing a “salt solution” into my arm, then going over it with skin colored ink or something.

Anyone heard of this salt solution removal technique or tried it? It is WAY cheaper than laser, but does it work? Is it safe? Thanks

If it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, it’s probably a skunk.

I am sure that lord Matthew can shed some actual intelligence on this issue, but I can promise you that it’s all hogwash. How on earth would saltwater remove the ink that’s trapped in small pockets within your skin?

Here is a link that some-what explains what I think is the same procedure. I just want to know if it really does work and is safe? Anyone familiar with this method?

Ive heard of this. This is what they did before they discovered the laser.

Come on people we are all smart right?

Tattoo ink has stained your dermis. You can get a tattoo out by tattooing anything horrid in there, but only if you are happy for it to come out with a bunch of your rotten flesh.

Salt water, bleach, yogurt, rejuvie its all the same crap. You set up an infection the tattoo comes out with the gank and then you do what you can to manage the scar tissue.

Good luck if you go with it, dont forget to post lots of pictures.

peace.

Ewwww… that really doesn’t sound like much fun. When I read this, I wasn’t thinking it would do much. The salt would really cause the tattoo to come out, or would it just dilute the ink and ooze unpredictably?

It isnt the salt that makes the ink come out and it certainly doesnt dilute the ink.
It is like a dirty cut. Rotten nasty flesh is replaced by your body as best it can by new flesh.
It the scar that is the problem.
