Default Alright my mighty Nasiocers, I need info... Tattoo stuff

As always, I check fellow nasioc members for advice when I don't have a clue. I have a tattoo, probably around eeghh.. lets say a 1/4 sleeve, I want to get parts of it covered or replaced. Tattoo artist said it would look like a blob if covered get it faded first then they could tattoo over it. My question is, does anyone have personal experience with wrecking balm or any other tattoo remover or fader that recommend it or should I go with laser removal? Every time I google that stuff I just get ads and fake recommendations.

I would be really wary of using wrecking balm. My friend just started getting his arm lasered and it is pretty expensive. Like 100 dollars per session, and it takes up to 10 sessions give or take a few depending on the size of the tattoo and the quality of ink. The older the tattoo and the less dense the ink makes it go a lot faster and easier.

Also it hurts like a bitch.

But yea be careful about that creme it is not good for you at all.

my husband used a salt rub and was able to fade his tattoo quite a bit; but it took awhile. to completely remove it you'd need laser - but if you're going for a dark cover up, you'd be able to use just the salt.

I heard good things about wrecking balm, depending on your skin tone.

Laser all the way. Topical removal creams are well known to give a wide variety of results depending on the individual. Also it has been rumored that wrecking balm and the like have high amounts of carcinogens. The question to ask your self is:
Would you take the cheaper road when getting a tattoo? Then why would you take the cheaper/easier route for tattoo removal?

It is always good to hit up a reputable cover up artist and get his/her oppinion

I am not a tattoo person, but I'd say laser too. I hear have actually gotten to be a less expensive procedure.

Talk to a couple of shops and see what they charge for laser and get pics or testimonies from clients. You can probably find a place that does a decent job that won't bend you over on price. Wrecking balm seems pretty scary to me.
