tattooing.jpg According to Journal of American Academy of Dermatology, about 1/4th of Americans have tattoos. There are various alternative methods for tattoo removal, like dermabrasion, salabrasion and scarification and finally surgery. However, most people need more than one treatment to remove a tattoo, and some tattoos can never be completely
removed. Two new forms of tattoo inks are set to launch in the next two years. The company Freedom-2 LLC is developing ink - expected to be available next year - that can be removed with a single laser treatment.

Moreover, Associated Press reported another kind of ink technology that will be available in 2008, which can
fade off the tattoo permanently within 6-24 months.
