Quick Answers...

Can tattoos be removed?

There are several methods available for tattoo removal, but always consult a physician, surgeon or dermatologist first. Successful removal depends upon a variety of factors including the type of ink, depth of ink, intensity of color, and the age of the tattoo. Never attempt to remove a tattoo yourself!
