Real Experience Lightening and Removing a Tattoo at Home - Part 2

Hello there! Thanks you form coming back here at naturaltattooremovalinfo.blogspot.com in order to read the continuation story of Real Experience Lightening and Removing a Tattoo at Home - Part 1. In the previous post, I have had shared the real experience from Jenna, getting rid of her tattoo by using at home method, 
Natural Tattoo Removal

Two Days After a Small Laser Session and Three Weeks After Getting the Tree Tat

I do believe this portion of the barbed wire is practically gone after one treatment. If it's that easy to get rid of it, I'm ecstatic! How does it feel? Like nothing really. It's a small area, and I can't say I have even noticed any pain. Easy! 
I'm still trying to lighten the tree up as much as I can at this point. I did a round of salicylic acid which lightly scabbed up the portion of the tree that I worked on. I'm thinking about getting a portion of the tree removed by laser as well.

Four Weeks After Tree Tattoo and the Second Laser Session

I had my second laser session done, and this one hurt bad!
She did a larger area of the barbed wire. You have to try to remember to breathe during this, but I couldn't. My whole body was stiff and I didn't breathe the whole time. It was almost like going to the dentist.
When it's done it's fine, but during? WOW. This won't stop me from continuing my quest! I have one more section of barbed wire to do! And then I start on the tree! Natural Tattoo Removal
This is the first section of barbed wire I had done. It's only a few weeks after that session and look how light it is! There are still six more weeks of healing and lightening to go as well so I am pretty excited!

Early Results From 1st Laser Session

I am pretty amazed at how much lighter this section of barbed wire is, after only a few weeks of one laser session. I definitely won't need many treatments here.
I have decided to laser off that entire branch right next to it as well. Without that there it'll be a little more simple, and I'll also be taking off a bunch of branches all over and flowers.
I continue to attempt to lighten the entire tree at home, but I have to stop on the areas I'm going to get the laser on. But I always work on the parts I can work on, when I can. If I can at least lighten it as much as possible before the laser, I'll hopefully need less treatments on the tree. Natural Tattoo Removal

Early Results From Second Laser Session

This part of my barbed wire has lightened considerably and still has a long time to go to lighten more. I am very happy with results after just one laser session.
I will probably need two sessions in total over all the barbed wire and I still need to do the bottom of my arm and for that I bought some Emla which is a numbing cream, because I know that is going to be painful!

Third Laser Session, This Time on the Tree

The pain getting this part done was nothing compared to my old barbed wire! I was very pleased with that to say the least. I really have no idea how well it will lighten as it is a brand new tattoo, but I really wanted this part removed along with all the little flowers.
I'm going for a less busy look but I might even be moving towards removing the entire tree now. I'm still not happy at all with it. The only part I like is a tiny little butterfly that I don't feel the urge to remove. I'm glad I'm getting this far!
It's usually every two weeks that I get a section done. The healing process is nothing to complain about and basically this whole process is easy and quick with fast results. Natural Tattoo Removal

Update After Lasering on Tree

It's been slow going but I am really happy with what I have gotten done so far. Here is an updated picture of the part of the tree that I had lasered. I am so surprised that it is as light as it is now, being a brand new tattoo and all. I still use all my creams but never on freshly lasered areas. I'm still exfoliating and lightening.
Healing from this one has been the hardest! I have never been so itchy in all my life. The other areas that I got done never itched this bad. I still can't complain about pain, but I can now complain of being itchy!
I am really beginning to hope that I do not decide to get rid of the entire tree. I think with enough 'tweaking' I will like it. The barbed wire needs to be 100% gone, the back of the tree, and lots of branches and flowers. Only then will I really know. Natural Tattoo Removal

WOW. Look at the difference. The laser has helped a lot with the flowers and petals here, but have my creams really lightened the overall tattoo up as much as it appears?

Side by side comparison. The difference is awesome. On the left is the first day I got the tat, on the right is about 2+ months of constantly using my creams and doing laser treatment.

Update One Year Later: Laser Works

I have not been able to come to terms with this tattoo. I dislike it still (a lot!) and want it gone. Above is the top portion of the tree done. Honestly, I can't say anything bad about the results I've had so far with the laser.
Yes it hurts to get it done but the healing process is amazingly easy for me. The only thing I can complain about here is the itching! It's practically unbearable, but I deal with it and try not to scratch at all because I don't want scarring.
And that's another wonderful thing about laser, there is no scarring! Your skin heals up perfectly fine! Soon I will be getting the bottom half done, and then the barbed wire. Eventually my upper arm will be a clean slate, and I will probably keep it that way! I do still want my nice feminine tree, but not there. Natural Tattoo Removal
I've decided to laser off the entire tree! This is a few days after getting the laser. (Notice how faded the barbed wire is too! That is just from one session.)

Last Update

After all my experimentation, it was the laser that got the tattoo off as much as it has. Nothing else really worked. I might cover up what is left of this tree with something else as my arm scars are showing again now. Anyway I am very amazed at the progress!

Real Experience Lightening and Removing a Tattoo at Home

Hello there!! Welcome back my reader. Thank you for keep coming back here at (naturaltattooremoval.blogspot.com - giving you a tips on natural ways to get rid of tattoos) in order to read my articles. Well, in this post, I would like to share with you guys, those are really in need to get their tattoo off their body, to keep reading on this blog post.
When I was surfing the entire web, looking for any new information regarding natural tattoo removal, I accidentally came across to this amazing webpage tatring.com. The owner of the page, Jenna, wrote her experienced on getting rid of her tattoo by using both natural ways to get rid of tattoos & laser tattoo removal. Below is her experienced throughout the process. Keep reading guys.

**************************************************************************************************************************
I wrote this article detailing the process I went through after getting a tree tattoo that I wasn't very happy with. I also had an older barbed wire tattoo that I wanted to be gone.
I researched every possible means to remove or lighten them both. I wanted to find something that I could handle and that wouldn't scar horribly. I wasn't sure what was going to work, but I tried a lot of different things.
You can see pictures of what I tried below. In the end, lasering the tattoo was the most effective thing for me.

My Supplies

What I Tried
I started using these a few days after getting the tree tattoo.
Neostrata 10% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Cream
I thought using a cream every day that exfoliates might help fade the barbed wire so I started using it on that. Plus it had 10% glycolic acid which will fade a tattoo.

At only 10% this might not even work well enough to see any sort of change, but you never know. I started putting it on the tree tattoo as well to try and lighten it.
Skin Doctors SD White
This contains emblica which has the same effect as hydroquinone which is a skin lightener. Emblica is safer to use. I am fairly certain that some of the official tattoo removing creams contain emblica. This process could also take some time as results may not show for weeks after you begin.
I started with those two products while I was still researching other options. Exfoliating with glycolic acid and lightening with emblica seemed like a good start, but I would not be seeing fast results. I would need a much higher dose of glycolic acid to see fast results. I went shopping again, but I continued to use these products.
Soluver Wart Treatment (20% Salicylic Acid)
I figured I'd need to open the skin before using this as the instructions say to scrub off the top portion of your wart and then apply the salicylic acid, meaning it needed to get under the skin to work. 20% salicylic acid will burn like crazy when put on an open wound. Keep that in mind!
Three Pumice Stones
I needed a way to open up my skin so the wart treatment could get under it. Yes this hurt. It wasn't so much the rubbing away of the skin but applying the acid into it that will burn your brains out.
I only rubbed away a small portion of my barbed wire, as a test. I plan on doing this slowly, in small spots. This is unlike going to a dermatologist who will use a sander on your entire tattoo during your dermabrasion tattoo removal appointment.
As I researched more I found out some other helpful information.
Vaseline
I learned that Vaseline is horrible on new tattoos and will draw the ink out, so of course I had to get some. I had no idea if it would effect my barbed wire tattoo since it was older. But I reasoned that if my barbed wire had a wound in it, it might draw the ink out since the new tattoo is just a really a big wound.
It is also not a good idea to smother your new tattoo. It's best to keep it dry and let it heal on it's own. I was doing everything in reverse here.
Polysporin Triple Action
This is another big no no to put on new tattoos so of course I put it on my tree, along with the small parts of barbed wire I used a pumice stone on.
Nair
This was probably my craziest experiment. I put this on a small portion of my barbed wire and left it there, and would put on salicylic acid afterwards. When it was dry I would add Polysporin and Vaseline and cover it.
Then I let it air out and form a scab. I had no idea if Nair was actually doing anything while it was on my skin. I couldn't feel anything. I only felt something when I took it off. Then I realized it had indeed burned my skin.

First Week

 The white spots are the salicylic acid. The tree looks lighter overall but I cannot be sure if it's from my treatments or if it was going to lighten to this level on its own anyway.

Week Three

I've also started trying hydrogen peroxide to lighten at least the tree tattoo, and I've seen major results. I, of course, cannot pinpoint what exactly is working and what isn't. It could be a combination or mainly one or two things. I have stopped the dermabrasion and the Nair burning.
I had a laser tattoo removal consult to go to during my third week after the tree tattoo, and wanted my arm clear enough in case I wanted to get anything done. I might actually just get the barbed wire lasered off.
We did a few spots today to see how well I would deal with the pain, and it's ok! So some of it is already in the process of going bye bye. As for the tree, I'd never be able to pay for that to be removed, I am planning on adding light, interesting colors to it to brighten it and have it not be so black and fierce.
I will continue the creams on the tree but as for the barbed wire, it's gonna be lasered.

I've been able to lighten the tree a bit. The barbed wire, however, is a different story.

Effective Ways On How To Remove Tattoos At Home Quickly - Natural Tattoo Removal

Tattoo is a way to express the personality of people in general. It is a form of body art that has been around for a while.


The single matter from tattoos that people have to face is that a tattoo will stay permanently on the skin, not just as the mark of a pen on your hand or leg, but the ink will enter and lie under your skin forever. Once you get a tattoo done, you need to know that to remove your tattoo, you might have to experience a painful, long, and costly process. As I mentioned in the first section, there are a lot of different reasons for people to get their tattoos removed, including:
  • People are embarrassed about their tattoos due to many reasons, mostly coming from the society and family, making them unconfident.
  • Their tattoos look unprofessional.
  • People got something when they were young and when they grow up, they do not like that design anymore.
  • The tattoos expressed the owner’s partner’s name (whom they later broke up with). and many more and more reasons for you to learn how to remove a tattoo at home fast and effectively

Before going for laser surgery, you should know that there are several different home remedies and tips on how to remove a permanent tattoo from skin at home with natural home tattoo removal methods that you can try. Check out this section of the article to learn some of the most common and useful tips on how to remove a tattoo naturally at home.



SALABRASION


Salabrasion is a tattoo removal process that requires the use of tap water, plain table salt, and an abrasive device; for example, a wooden block covered by a bandage. This process could be completed in between 30 – 40 minutes. People will need to prepare for it because it can be really gross for some people and a little bit messy.

What occurs during this process is that the area with tattoos would be shaved. And then, you will need to mix a spoon of salt in water to apply directly onto the area. After that, you will need to rub abrasive material against the tattooed area till your skin becomes raw.

Then, the blistered skin would be cured thanks to the use of antibiotic and properly bandage. After 3 days, you will need to re-apply this treatment. This is actually the first tip on how to remove tattoos at home fast and naturally that I would like to reveal in this entire article and want you and my other readers to learn and remember.


COVER UP


This method is probably not exactly a tip on how to remove a permanent tattoo from skin at home, but in case you have a tattoo that you do not want to show off, you can always choose to cover it by getting another one on above. Nowadays, lots of tattoo artists are quite capable to implement this job. You just need to remember that covering up tattoos has its own limitation.

If you opt for using a red ink tattoo to cover up a tattoo done in black ink, then it is actually not possible because the stronger color will completely and certainly stand out. If people want to try making use of this method, they should look for skillful and prestigious tattoo covering up artists as if it is not properly done, the resulting tattoo will be terrible and almost impossible to fix. In fact, this is one out of the simplest yet very effective tips on how to remove a permanent tattoo from skin at home fast and naturally that will not take time but will bring about wonderful result. You actually do not need to totally remove the old tattoos but just replace them with new ones in general.


DIY CHEMICAL PEEL

This is also one of the best tips on how to remove tattoos at home fast and effectively that people can consider making use. A chemical peel could be costly, requiring people to spend a lot of money and effort to get and use it, especially in case that you have to remove a tattoo in large size with a lot of colors.

With this tip on how to remove tattoos at home, you can make your own natural chemical peel to make use that does not even require using chemicals at all. Everything you need is just some simple ingredients that can be easily found at home.

Here is what you will need to do:
  • Mix vitamin E oil, natural aloe vera gel, apricot scrub together in equal amounts.
  • Use the mixture to dab directly onto your skin area with tattoos in circular motions using a Q-tip until the mixture covers the whole area.
  • Allow your tattooed skin area to soak within about five minutes.
  • Use cold water to rinse your skin off (make sure the mixture is totally removed).
  • Do this up to 4 times daily within about one month and you will be able to see your tattoo ink gradually faded.

This process might take you a longer time period to work depending on the size of your tattoo, how long have you had it, and the brightness and variety of the colours used. Thus, this wonderful tip on how to remove a permanent tattoo from skin at home should be done on a daily basis if you really want to get your tattoos removed once and for all!

DIY Natural Tattoo Removal by Using Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

Hello there! I've been looking for any other treatment on Natural Tattoo Removal recently & I've come across to this one website, a guy who already tried to remove his tattoo by using Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) as a main ingredients. 

This guy has been a tattoo collector for over a decade, and am functionally knowledgeable about the medium's technical as well as cultural aspects. He say this right off the bat because he sure that there will be people who wish to point out that what he have done was stupid and dangerous, and they would be correct. So he’s just putting that out there front and center before anyone assumes that his goal here is to present DIY tattoo removal as being a "good idea". Do not try this at home if you don’t have guts.
Natural Tattoo Removal
ABOUT THE TATTOO
Just to pre-empt any questions, he told that the original tattoo was on his left middle finger and intended to look like the symbol used by the band Cloud Cult. Unfortunately this was a terrible tattoo choice as the symbol itself does not translate very well into the medium and the space was far too small for it, anyway. In addition, the application left quite a bit to be desired and so in general it just looked like a shitty tattoo and I had no reservations about sacrificing it to this experiment.
Natural Tattoo Removal
ABOUT APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
This guy has taken organic ACV internally as a probiotic and preventative immune-booster (among other reasons you can read about elsewhere, IE joint health) on a near-daily basis for several years now. As a healthcare provider (current cert: Wilderness EMT) he has used it extensively on friends and patients as a topical treatment for things like sunburn and poison ivy, as well as to remove warts (yes, including genital warts but mostly just on fingers and stuff). His point here being, he have had a working relationship with ACV for many years and have used it to "burn off" warts on people before, so he wasn't just flying blind in seeing what would happen with putting it on a tattoo. He also has a healthcare provider's awareness regarding things like sterility and infection, so keep that in mind.


Now obviously as opposed to a wart, which is a raised area and will soak up and react with ACV before the underlying tissue is too badly affected in most cases, a tattoo is actually under the epidermis and so you'll have to burn through at least a little bit of yourself to get to it. This process was extremely painful, though application methods and schedule will have had a lot to do with that.
Natural Tattoo Removal
THE PROCEDURE (STEPS BY STEPS)
He began by soaking a small piece of gauze or cotton in ACV and taping it over the area, making sure to not have the gauze so saturated that the moisture prevents a firm bandage from holding it in place. At first, you will not feel any burning sensations. He switched the gauze out every couple hours as it dried out so that there was always some ACV soaking into the site. The cumulative effect is what we're after.

After about 24 hours of this (leaving the gauze on overnight) the site becomes pale and clammy, just like if you'd stayed in the bath too long. The tissues are starting to break down from the acidity. At this point I took a sterile needle and "dug out" the dead skin from ONLY directly over top of the ink deposits, leaving the surrounding tissue alone. This allowed further applications of the ACV to penetrate directly to the pigment, as well as encouraging the vinegar to pool in the low channels he had dug out, where it would concentrate its caustic action and minimize damage to the surrounding tissues.
Natural Tattoo Removal
At this point he applied another 24 hours worth of ACV, stopping to further dig out the dead skin over the design as necessary. This is when the process became extremely painful. In order to speed up the removal he would usually push down on the gauze shortly after applying it, adding some pressure to the delivery of the acid and making sure that it was concentrated in the spot he wanted it. The pain is exactly what you might imagine a chemical burn to be like, and to him it was much, much worse than the original application of the tattoo.

When he judged that the burn had gone down to where the ink actually was, he just stopped with the ACV and let the wound heal. Much like in other removal techniques, the ink "rose to the top" of the wound and became the scab, which then peeled off in more or less the exact shape of the tattoo. This is one of the cooler pictures, he think.
Natural Tattoo Removal
Now he had a nasty hollow hole in his finger, which he allowed to heal naturally with a little bit of help from some tincture of Western Red Cedar and Oregon Grape (powerful anti-microbials). The second-to-last photo shows the scar tissue when fully healed, still in the shape of the original design and with some elements that weren't burned off still visible. In particular you can notice that the lower-right hand "leg" of the tattoo seems to fade in and out: this indicates areas where he wasn't diligent enough in digging down to the pigment with the needle, vs. areas where he was.

CLOSING THOUGHTS
This method is much too painful and tedious (changing out the dressing repeatedly over the course of the day) to be seriously used on any large pieces. In addition, the scarification is potentially quite severe as is the risk of infection, and the healing process can be lengthy even though the ACV itself just takes a couple days. He stopped early and got great results, certainly acceptable in terms of just obscuring a small unwanted tattoo. The pieces of it that are still visible, he feel confident could be removed fairly easily by using the same method but with something like a Q-tip for more precise applications. He would not choose to burn the same area again however, as the healing could get progressively more problematic.
Natural Tattoo Removal
In situations where it'd be easy enough to just get a cover-up done, that is obviously going to be your best choice. This form of removal has the potential to leave too much scar tissue to be successfully tattooed over in the future, but as a DIY alternative to expensive laser treatments he would say that it is absolutely viable when it comes to removing small things, slowly.

Hope this has been informative and helpful, even if a lot of you are shaking your heads in exasperation. Or else, you can try other natural tattoo removal suggested in THIS E-BOOK which has been proven the effectiveness. 

BEST OF LUCK GUYS!!
