Ive heard good things about this for small, already faded tattoos. However, with the cost of laser removal being down to 150 per session at some places and depending on your insurance, they may cover most of it. I'd highly suggest laser removal.

When I was in getting a tattoo a few weeks ago someone was asking about it and they said that it will lighten up tattoos but won't completely remove them. Something about it won't penetrate deep enough to get all the ink. I'm thinking about trying it on a 15 year old homeade tattoo. Couldn't hurt, right?

I'm using it right now for about a month on a 20 yr old tat and have only noticed that my tat has gotten brighter. It supposed to scrape away skin through an abrasion process and your skin is supposed to regenerate to the point of pushing the ink up to the surface. There are mixed opinions about this stuff, it mainly depends on the age, depth and color of the tat. My tat is a cobra wrapped around a dagger about 8-9 inches long and almost 3 inches wide on my left arm. It was done with a homemade gun and caligraphy ink, so it is pretty dark. It's seen alot of sun and my body has changed to a larger size than I was 20 years ago. Doesn't look so good anymore. I only got the 3 month kit and wanted to see if it could do anything to lighten it up before I got a cover up done with some tribal. A little too early to tell at this point. Check out the website and do some research before making a choice. Be informed. Cheers.

Pro tattoos are much easier to remove than amateur ones due to technique. Pro tattoos are done at the same depth.

Are these older tattoos on part of your body that has changed shape at all in the last 12 years? My big concern is my body changing shape (bigger muscles or eventually more fat or sagging skin) and then the tattoo becomes unrecognizable. I see the old military guys with their tattoos on their forearm that you can't really even tell what they are anymore. Granted, the techniques and technology have gotten better since those were done as well as better ink, but that's still my biggest deterrent. Does this not become a problem with sunscreen and/or lotion to keep the skin taken care of?

I have lost nearly 100 pounds in the last 4 years. So you could say my body has gone through some changes. My tattoos still look great. As long as the muscle growth or weightloss is at a normal rate, the skin (tattoo) will stretch with it. I've seen guys get ink work and then start doing power lifting, their work still looks fine. As for the old tattoos they contained mercury, if they got a high fever, or had any serious skin issues the body would destroy the color of the ink. That is why the black ink looks blue or green. The black from the mercury would weep out, or be absorbed. Tattoo ink no longer contains mercury. There are no FDA regulations on tattoo ink, but a good artist will use quality ink from a known source. I personally would stay away from the blacklight friendly ink, it hasn't been on the market long enough to know all of the risks and duration/lifespan of the ink in the skin.

I worked in a tattoo studio for 12 years, I can answer most tattoo related questions. Feel free to post here or PM me if you want more info.

I will definitely do that! Thanks for the good info I always wondered about the green ink and if today's tattoos would look like that tomorrow.

Congrats on the weight loss too, that's great!

This summer I vow to finish the tattoo on my leg. I started it 5 years ago, and it only has 10 or 20 hours left until it is done. And none of the tattoo got damaged when I cracked up the 675.

My oldest tattoo is solid black (tribal), covers half of my calf. It is just over 12 years old. It had to be touched up one time, not from fading, but from me walking into a glasstop table, and taking a chunk out of it. It is still jet black, with crisp edges. Catch me at a bike night I will gladly show it to you.

I still find it funny that I've talked with both you and Dave on here, through PMs, heard stories about your lil one and have still yet to meet either of you in person I just saw Dave for the first time in pictures a couple weeks back and I think I saw you with your bike on here last summer so hopefully I'll recognize one of you guys when we finally run into eachother.
