At Home Tattoo Removal – The Natural Nonlaser Route

 

Home Tattoo Removal

Home tattoo removal is a relatively new concept.

One of the most common questions I receive from people who are unsatisfied with their tattoos is “Can tattoos be removed naturally?” to which I always reply back with a big fat YES.

You absolutely can remove your tattoo naturally and you can do so from the comfort of your own home. Not only that but it’s the cheapest and most effective option available. The problem is that when people think of tattoo removal they automatically think of laser removal, which is very expensive. At home tattoo removal is just as effective and it’s a fraction of the price.

Some tattoos are more regrettable than others….

The Natural Removal Process

The natural tattoo removal process is pretty simple. As humans, the skin on our bodies naturally exfoliates, meaning that layers of our skin shed off to make room for new layers. In fact, the layers of skin that we see and touch are actually dead!

Take your fingernail and press it against your skin. You barely even feel anything, right?

That’s because that part of your skin isn’t really living anymore. However, if you take a sharp object and press it into your skin with a little bit of pressure, you’re definitely going to feel it and you’re probably not going to like that feeling very much. You feel this discomfort because you’ve now reached the layers of skin that are made up of living skin cells.

Accelerated Exfoliation:  The Backbone of Home Tattoo Removal

The process of accelerated exfoliation allows you to get to those living layers without causing too much pain or discomfort. As I said before, our bodies naturally shed the dead layers to make room for the newer ones, but they do so at a rather slow rate. We can, however, take action and change this so that our living cells die faster and therefore, come off faster.

But why would we want these skin cells to die faster? The answer is simple, to remove a tattoo we need to get access to the skin that houses the ink. To get this ink out of your skin, you need your deeper subcutaneous skin layers to rise and essentially push the ink out.

These are precisely the layers that tattoo artists target when they are embedding the ink into your skin. The tattoo artists know that they must penetrate through the initial layers otherwise the tattoo won’t last. Unfortunately, that’s also why getting a tattoo can hurt like hell!

So to remove a tattoo the natural (non laser) way, we must exfoliate the deeper layers of the skin (using a number of different home remedies) and get them to rise to the surface as fast as possible. When the deep layers finally surface, the ink embedded within does as well and you can simply just wipe it off with a towel.  At home tattoo removal is truly a DIY method.

Now, obviously this isn’t just going to happen overnight.  Home tattoo removal requires consistency.  You have to know what you’re doing and it can take a few weeks for you to see really solid results.  If you want a legitimate gameplan to get quick results check out the natural tattoo removal guide here.

While it may seem like a long time to wait, keep in mind that the average laser tattoo removal process takes 6 months – 1 year and can even take 2 years for a big tattoo! Not to mention the ridiculous cost and damage you’re doing to your skin by constantly vaporizing, scarring, healing, and then doing it all over again for multiple sessions.

Laser is not the only option!

I truly don’t understand why so many people still opt for laser tattoo removal when there are alternative methods that blow it out of the water. I think most people haven’t even heard of at home tattoo removal.  Most aren’t aware that nonlaser methods even exist and choose laser because they believe it’s their only option.

My goal is to get the word out on natural tattoo removal.  I want to help people make informed decisions before they make a mistake and commit to the laser too soon.  In my opinion, using natural tattoo removal methods first is definitely your best option.  The Laserless Tattoo Removal Guide is a great DIY guide that goes over everything I just talked about in detail. I always recommend this to my clients as a first option because it gives you the step-by-step instructions on how you can remove your tattoo in a matter of weeks just by using ingredients you can get from your grocery store.
