Tattoo removal without laser
Laser is really the only effective method of removing a tattoo. There are chemicals that are advertised, but I recommend against using them, as I have seen them cause significant chemical burns and scarring. The colors in your tattoo will be difficult to remove with laser, but not necessarily impossible. If the tattoo is preventing you from pursuing a particular career, I would recommend that you get a consultation with a clinician experienced in tattoo removal, who uses the most up-to-date laser technology.

The best way to have this removed would be laser tattoo removal. I recommend getting a formal evaluation. It will take a series of treatments, but see an expert for best results. Best, Dr. Emer
