The Laserless Tattoo Removal Guide

The Laserless Tattoo Removal Guide   Before you spend a dime on tattoo removal, you need to know something VERY important. That the industry makes a lot more than the artists do on tattoos… For no reason other than the PAIN of having an unwanted tattoo. PAIN that they take to the bank! WHERE THERE’S MONEY, THERE’S GREED MY FRIEND. THAT’S WHY YOU NEED TO KNOW ONE MORE THING: Laser tattoo removal costs $200-$500 per treatment, $2,000 on average for a full treatment! And it’s the worst way to remove a tattoo. These aren’t cancer cells we’re talking about. Just ink below the skin. But when you have an industry that can make $200-$500 for a quick visit – people are going to take advantage. Good information about ALL NATURAL, HOME-BASED tattoo removal gets drowned out by the local laser tattoo removal clinic and its nonstop misinformation campaign. There’s a better way. No matter what reason you want to get your tattoo removed – you’re about to find a whole new proven method for getting it off without even leaving your house (other than perhaps a quick trip to the grocery store!). WHY LASER TATTOO REMOVALS COST SO MUCH MORE…

Which Tattoo Colors Can You Remove?   “Hey Dorian, I got some pretty wicked tattoos: tribal stamp around my left wrist, my own words to live by on my upper back. But my biggest one is my flower blossom that uses quite a few colors. Is this going to be a problem if I decide to remove it? Thanks man” It definitely makes things more complicated, that’s for sure. Some tattoo removal methods are very sensitive to the type of ink pigment being used. For example with laser methods, black and red pigment won’t be an issue. But others will especially if they’re lighter. The problem is that lasers have difficulty targeting these ink layers. Nontraditional colors, nontraditional methods The flip side of the coin is that it doesn’t matter if you’re tattoo is pink, purple, or some crazy lime green if you use methods like the apricot scrub mentioned in my guide (check it out here: [link]) That’s because exfoliation methods don’t discriminate, they simply wear off dead layers of skin until the tattoo is exfoliated. Of course this is one of several methods discussed in the guide. Coverups Another thing you need to keep in mind especially if…

The Laser Tattoo Removal Process Explained

The Laser Tattoo Removal Process Explained   “Dorian, I know you preach natural tattoo removal. And after reading your guide I am already planning to buy my ingredients. But my wife is in the laser removal camp and has already done her first session. How much longer of a ride are we in for?” Well the good news is that since you’ll see results faster than she could hope to, you may be able to get her off of those expensive laser treatments πŸ™‚ But let’s say she sticks to her guns and goes the full laser route. As much as I advocate the all-natural approach, I never say that laser removal in ineffective, since it’s not. It’s just more expensive and time-consuming. And a higher risk of side effects but that’s the topic for a different article. Six months minimum for laser-based methods Why does it take so long? The sessions themselves are actually pretty quick, the technicians will laser the affected area for only a few minutes at a time. Their goal is to slowly vaporize the subdermal ink. So why does it take so long? Because the process is imperfect and skin cells around the ink are…

Tattoo Removal Methods

Tattoo Removal Methods   You should thank your local grocery store – it literally built you into the person you are. Think about it: most of the cells of your body are replaced in days, months, or a few years. And what are they replaced with? Food. Food you buy from your local grocery store. The food literally turns into you. I bring this interesting thought up to help you understand just how powerful foodborne chemicals can be in altering your body. And yes, that includes removal of skin tattoo ink. In fact not only is there a way to do so at your grocery store, there are several different ways, using different ingredients to do the same job. Here are just a few of those methods Salabrasion The salabrasion technique uses a mixture of water and granular salts, along with light sanding, to literally wipe the tattoo away using micro-friction. Remember that salts are microscopic crystals, a fact obvious to tiny insects, but forgotten by large human beings. They have the same effect when applied to the skin in the correct way. No tool is right for everyone but the Salabrasion technique is one of the first I turn…

Tattoo Removal: What to Expect in Terms of Cost
Blog / 06/03/2015

Tattoo Removal: What to Expect in Terms of Cost   “Hey Dorian, can you give me a breakdown of the cost to expect with tattoo removal methods?” When you’re looking at laser-based methods, you’re paying for an initial consultation followed by a per session charge. Clinics that are hungry for business might offer the initial consult for free, but usually you’re paying about $100 for the privilege. Basically the doctor or his assistant will look at your tattoo, tell you how easy or hard of a job it’ll be for the lasers depending on the size, complexity, and amount of ink pigments used. And based on that plan he will recommend a series of laser removal sessions. In essence you’re being charged $100 or so for a sales presentation. But hey, when you get to call your clients “patients,” you have that luxury πŸ™‚ So how about the cost per session? Depends on part of the country you’re from, but expect to pay about $150-$400 per session. If you have a really easy removal job you may have as little as three treatments, but more likely you can expect to be going for five or more. It’s not uncommon for…

What Can I Do If My Tattoo Isn’t Completely Faded?
Blog / 04/05/2015

What Can I Do If My Tattoo Isn’t Completely Faded?   “Dorian, I went to a removal clinic and after several months of treatment, my tattoo isn’t gone! They said there is nothing more they can do to fade it!” This is probably the most common issue with laser removals. You have a level of fade that leaves the tattoo less visible than before you started but still oddly visible, like a ghost tattoo that someone can still see if they look right at it. Not a fun place to be. The good news for you guys who haven’t gone through this is that your tattoo is lower risk if it’s solid colored. Complicated multicolored tattoos are more difficult to fade because different inks respond in different ways to the ink removal lasers. There’s a tendency for part of the tattoo to be more visible than other parts, another reason I recommend doing a cover up as first option (more than just a bit). High complexity, lower fade The most difficult tattoos for the lasers are multicolored tattoos that are also highly complex in nature. I’m talking about intricate patterns like sweeping back designs with full on backgrounds and character…

Remove a Tattoo Completely, or Just Cover It Up?

Remove a Tattoo Completely, or Just Cover It Up?   “I have a tattoo of my ex’s name right across the front of my chest. She was great until she wasn’t, that’s all I can really say about her! Obviously I need to get this off but my friend who had laser removal said I might want to just do a cover-up instead. What are your thoughts, Dorian?” Coverups can do a lot more than you think You may think that covering up Jessica or Cassondra in block letters would be a difficult job. You might be surprised. Oftentimes we can hide these in dragons or other extremely complex designs. If the pattern is written in cursive, vines are an option, mystical figures, you name it. Any artist worth his salt can take what you have as a base and suggest multiple options to you. As for me? I guess I got lucky because my ex had a short name πŸ™‚ Lots of options there. If you want it totally gone Okay, let’s say you’ve made up your mind already and you don’t want the tattoo at all anymore. Well you already know I’m an advocate of all-natural, laserless removal….

How to Remove Tattoos Naturally

How to Remove Tattoos Naturally   When you talk about natural tattoo removal, how does it work exactly? I get that you’re using body-safe, natural ingredients, but I don’t understand how they act on the body to remove tattoos.” I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this. It seems a lot of people appreciate the safety aspects of natural removal (compared to laser), but don’t quite understand how natural removal works. Accelerated exfoliation Did you know that your skin exfoliates on its own, without you doing anything? It’s true, in fact the layers of skin that you see are actually dead. That’s why you can rub a fingernail against your skin and not even feel anything. But if you push deep or use the sharpened end of a pair of scissors – different story. You’re going to feel it, and it’s not going to be pleasant. In fact you may see some red. You didn’t strike oil, but you did strike living skin cells. Accelerated exfoliation gets to that layer. It does so by doing something the body normally doesn’t do on its own — it increases the rate at which living skin cells die and rise to the…
