I have a permanent tattoo on the side of my arm. I have gotten bored with that tattoo so I want to remove it, but I am very scared of laser treatment.I heard it hurts a lot. So I am looking for a natural medicine or therapy which works for me without pain.
There is no natural way to remove a tattoo. You can either have it removed or have a tattoo cover up (but think of a sentimental tattoo and not one you'd become bored of).
For temporary, you can cover it up with make up if it bugs you.
It doesn't sound like there is an effective natural remedy for tattoos. Most of them require removing the skin with an acid or dermabrasion, which is painful in itself. It sounds like you can lighten a tattoo but the deeper parts of the ink are going to stay there unless you do something drastic.
There is a lot of information on the internet but few of them show any results. This is an article I found that documents a woman's struggle to find a way to remove her tattoo.
Good luck, and keep us posted on your progress and what you find out.
Now that I am older, they don't seem to fit into my lifestyle anymore so I am wondering: Does anyone know of a quick way to remove a permanent tattoo besides laser? Its so expensive!
The only safe permanent way to remove it, is lasers. There is special makeup for covering up tattoos, you can check into that. I have heard of people doing some really dumb stuff to try to remove tattoos themselves, and they usually end up with a big nasty scar.
