Natural / Saline tattoo removal carnage

Recommended Posts

One of the private LinkedIn groups I'm a member of for tattoo removal specialist has an on-going thread about the 'natural' and 'saline' tattoo removals people are offering, some with tattoo machines, so who are running just water though the machine than packing in salt to an open wound for up to 10 minutes.

This is a photo one member shared of their client who came in after trying it. https://celibreinc.app.box.com/embed/hrzsrk6vlfn7hz2.swf#!

is that scarring the skin? pardon my ignorance, I would give this a try on my upper arm if I was confident I could get a nice tattoo after the treatment

Yes, that's very heavy scaring. In a nut shell, they are opening up the skin to create a wound, putting an agitator in there so your body must 'reject' the pigment and during the scabby / crusty / crappy / painful healing process, hopefully the ink will come out. If you're not 100% on top of the healing process, this is what can happen. And no, this wouldn't be fun to tattoo over, the raised and bumpy skin won't go away when it's tattooed.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
