Remove/tattoo.: There 2 methods for tattoo removal. #1 Pico Laser from Cynosure needs multiple treatments and is quite expensive. Risks scarring or failure for complete removal. #2 DermaPen therapies - lees expensive results could approach the laser after multiple treatment sessions. Risk same as laser. Good Luck.
