I have a tattoo located on my hip that I would like to have removed. Scarring is not a large concern as I am considering of conceal it under a bathing suit and undergarments.
Is Tattoo Removal by Excision Safe and Effective?

Laser may also be an option
Surgical removal of a tattoo can leave you with a raised or spread scar. There would be a few weeks of limited physical activity during the healing. Laser removal can reduce the color or almost completely remove the tattoo without scarring (although there is a small risk).
