I would recommend a fade away product called Tat B Gone. I had a tattoo of a tiger on my ankle that I had done when I was 18. Now I'm 34 and I really wanted it gone. I used Tat B Gone for 6 months and my tattoo is gone now. Hard to believe right? Well it really worked, just have to follow the directions and use it every day. Its still kind of pricey but for what it does its really worth it.
I got a tattoo when I was 18 and several years ago I started with laser treatment to get it removed. I really hated the tattoo but laser was too painful and too slow. I don't know how anybody could put themselves through it! A year and half ago I decided to try a one of those tattoo removal creams. I went with Tat B Gone because they are the oldest one out there. It took a year of nearly daily application but no more tattoo for me. It faded it out nearly completely, even the green which I had been told is the most difficult. Definitely an awesome product! Two thumbs up!
I just saw Wrecking Balm at Walmart! I couldn't believe it, its such a joke! Wrecking Balm will not remove your tattoo or even fade it - just temporarily lighten it up. At least at Walmart you can return anything that you buy even if its been opened. Best to stay away from wrecking balm to begin with but at least you'll get your money back if you want to travel that road. Tat B Gone is the real deal and it faded away my tattoo in 6 months. I'm dead serious, that stuff REALLY works.
Tat Med is a joke. It absolutely does not work! You might as well apply cold cream! I tried the junk for 4 months ($200!) and it did not fade my tattoo in the slightest. When I requested a refund, they offered me another month at 10% off!! What a rip off..stay clear of this stuff!
I would not recommend anyone try Tat-Med as it doesn't do anything. I bought it several months ago after reading a fake review website called the Skin Health Association. They ranked Tat-Med number 1 in tattoo removal creams but I should have known it was a dishonest website made by that company. I agree with the other guy who said check the ingredients out before you buy. This stuff has seaweed extract, marine algae, water cress, and other ineffective ingredients. Does nothing at all, would look to another product to fade your tattoo.
I don't really know anything about the creams, but I've been fading two half sleeves to get them covered up. The only thing I've been using is hot water and an exfoliating tool (for dry skin on feet). Just don't go too deep and take your time. It works over time. I also use an exfoliating cream afterwards. I use "pretty hands and feet", but there are probably other products too. It's just preference.
I own three tattoo studios in Los Angeles and I tried your product and recommend it to my clients as it works well. To be honest I tried Wrecking Balm after paying for it because they would not give me a sample and I was very disappointed, I used it for 3 months with barely any result. I am discussing wholesale prices with Tat B Gone and will start carrying it in my shops very soon. Many of my customers have expressed interest in alternatives to laser and I think this is the best one I've seen in my 20 plus years in the industry.
I don't know which is the best product to use to fade away your tattoo. But I would be aware of the ingredients that are listed in them. For instance, one such tattoo fade-away cream called Tat-Med lists: Distilled water, seaweed extract, plankton extract, and marine algae. I am skeptical that these ingredients are capable of fading away the ink in a tattoo. It looks like they've created a website called the Skin Health Association thats all about different fade-away creams but really is just a promotional tool for their own product. I'd stay away from this stuff, probably doesn't do anything. Better off trying one of the other ones like Tattoo-Off or the Tat B Gone.
Real tattoos cannot be removed by applying any cream as the pigment is impregnated permanently into the skin. The best you can hope for is fading and masking without laser or surgical removal.
None of the tattoo removal creams work. They all contain skin pigment faders which do not work on tattoo pigment. Some also contain a grit that is used to exfoliate the skin, but if you exfoliate you don't need the creams, they just add to the cost of the product without any extra benefit. Always read the ingredient list before buying any tattoo removal cream and you will see they contain no ingredient strong enough to remove a tattoo that was carved deep into your skin.
