TCA Peel Effective for Removing Tattoos?

I have a red and black tattoo on my left upper arm and I read somewhere that TCA Peel will effectively remove or fade the tattoo. I need to know if it will, what concentration I will need, and how much I can expect to spend.

TCA peel will not remove a tattoo

 A TCA  peel on you upper arm is likely not to affect the tatto at all.   If a TCA peel is done on your are your are very likely to develop deep scarring.  I would never suggest a TCA peel on this area for any purpose.
