There seems to be an increasing interest in natural alternatives for almost anything you can think of. The general consensus is that natural is better and safer. For the most part this is true – there are many situations when natural alternatives ARE better and safer. So what about tattoo removal? Is laser tattoo removal natural? What are some, if any, options for natural tattoo removal?
It is important to note, first of all, that tattoos are anything but natural. The ink inserted into the skin during the tattooing process is considered a foreign substance that the body fights to remove. There are plenty of unnatural (and very unsafe) additives in the tattoo ink that are cause for concern as well.
While laser tattoo removal does not technically fall into the DIY natural tattoo removal category, it still is a largely natural process. The lasers break the ink particles up into smaller pieces, allowing the immune system the ability to clear the foreign substance.
What about other options for natural tattoo removal? If you were to conduct an internet search on this topic, you would find a wide range of ideas for natural tattoo removal. Some of the suggestions include vitamin E or honey, claiming that they will topically fade the tattoo. Other suggestions include methods such as tattoo creams or chemical peels.
These DIY natural methods simply won’t work. The only proven methods for complete and safe tattoo removal are either the removal of the pigment with laser or excision – having the tattoo cut out. We recommend that you save your time and money and avoid creams, peels and topical solutions. DIY methods do not work. Your best bet is laser tattoo removal, a procedure that has been proven to be effective, safe and affordable.
