    wait, I just had a thought. can't you get flesh colored ink and cover it up that way or should I patent that idea and make millions before I suggest it?

    hey bro,

    thanks for your reply, good idea, but ive emailed tattoo places
    and there say you cant cover black ink

    i was such a dumb ass to get this done (drunk)

    it is about a inch square, right smack bang on the top of my hand

    i wouldent mind, but im not the type of guy to have tattoo's either lol
    in public i find myself constanly trying to hide it, its a real burden.

    I almost considered getting one this summer. I am so glad I did not. I think they are dumb. Especially the barbed wire around the arm. c'mon, come see me when you get the real thing

    1. laser removal. dosent hur musch and no real scareing if done well.
    2. white ink will cove it after a few sessions.
    2. 20 grit sand paper. whipe it right off.

    go with the laser. its no big deal

    With the laser can they now remove all colors? A old girlfriend of mine had a tattoo she didn't want anymore and she was told some of the colors would not be able to be removed fully.

    I have never heard of "white ink" what is that?..........

    Getting a tatt is a huge decission and so is where you place them.

    Take a look at this stuff >> http://www.tatgoneink.com/ I have had some of my Ink work done at a studio in Dallas that offers this service and from what I have seen it is cheaper than Laser and works really well even on dark inks. It can take several sessions and it is basically like getting another tattoo over the one you have now but it eventually works its way out of your skin.


    I have not tried it first hand but I have seen it in action.

    my friend who is a tattoo artist told me, it is roughly about £20 per square inch
    but if it is deep/dark ink it may take a few seshions.

    sorry dont know what tat is in $$$$

    I've seen it cost around $100/square inch. I've also read traditional black is pretty easy to remove, I believe it was red and green that were difficult to remove. I've thought about removal, but not really to worried about it right now. I'm betting that they will come up with a better laser in the next few years that will be cheaper and more effective.

    That's bullshit, you can't cover black with red (like some asshole tried to do with me)......I had a cover-up done a few years back to fix the cover-up someone messed up.

    If you find a good artist, he will do something with it, over it, around it.... believe me, I drove 2 hours each way back to my guy after "the best shop" around where I was living said they couldn't do anything with it. I'm very happy with it now. I will fly to see this guy if I have to, that's how good I believe he is and he has done 90% of my work.
