Not fully proven system - but may be promising
"Get Rid Tattoo" by Jason Carter - REVIEW - Does this really work?
Many times I have seen someone with 'punk' tattooed across their knuckles or the name of an ex-loved one on their arm and thought, 'are you going to want that forever?'
Of course not.
But the very nature of a tattoo is that it's a permanent record, a declaration.
And removal techniques are frankly frightening: laser treatment, surgery, abrasion techniques.
Who is to say these attempts won't just make more of a mess?
So Get Rid Tattoo - Naturally, is bound to be of interest to some people.
'Quick and easy natural methods to eliminating unwanted tattoos,' they say.
'A simple, natural, effective system, guaranteed.'
So lets look into this further.
Get Rid Tattoo consists of a book and accompanied online material.
The promotional material plays heavily on regrets associated with tattoos.
Being judged, bad associations, ex-lovers, problems with work.
And it also emphasizes the risks of skin damage from expensive abrasion and laser procedures.
The author claims to be a professional Tattoo Artist, who, when devastated by the break up of his marriage, was left with his (ex)wife's name emblazoned across his chest.
Prior to this he had suggested cover up art work for clients; but when it came to his own tattoo, he experimented with natural methods.
'To my surprise,' he said, 'I completely removed the unwanted tattoo in about four months... and the natural products I used cost me just about $15/month.'
However, as we know, and as the author of Get Rid Tattoo agrees, many websites and doctors will tell you that you can't get rid of a tattoo without an invasive abrasion or laser procedures.
'As a Tattoo Specialist,' says the author, 'I can tell you that tattoos are completely removable. Nearly any tattoo, no matter how dark they are, how old they are or what colors were used can be faded or completely eliminated.'
The author promises to reveal specific step-by-step tutorials and product recommendations for treating every different type of tattoo.
Including how to fade dark colored tattoos fast!
This is not a removal cream - which is a good thing, because some creams contain damaging hydroquinone or TCA.
The method is 'secret' and only revealed upon purchase (naturally...), however the promotional material does reveal this much.
Tattoo pigmentation consists of granules located in a skin cell known as a macrophage, which normally removes foreign objects (for example, bacteria) from the body.
The pigment, grit or carbon powder that has created the tattoo ‘freezes’ the macrophage cell so that it can’t do its job and the tattoo becomes permanent.
So the natural products recommended in Get Rid Tattoo activate the Macrophage skin cell and 'gradually start to fade the tattoo pigments naturally by breaking them down into tiny ink particles.'
So the $64,000 question - does it work?
I genuinely don't know.
The reference to microphage cells sounds promising, because scientific discussions of tattoo removal discuss various ways of activating the macrophage.
But I could not find any independent testimonials on this book or its method.
Or really any details except that it is a 'complete program.'
Most discussions agree that success in removing tattoos depends on several factors.
The type of tattoo (amateur/homemade or professional), the age of the person, the placement of the tattoo, and skin type.
Ink density, depth, surface size, and color of the tattoo are all important.
Creams - and therefore the 'natural products' recommended by Get Rid Tattoo - must be used consistently for weeks to get any type of results.
And recently applied tattoos respond better to treatment (particularly during the first month after application).
So if you realize quickly that your declaration was a mistake, then this system might work for you.
The promotor offers a money-back guarantee and there seem to be few returns recorded - which is a positive.
So it might just be effective.
But we just don't have objective data to confirm that.
