    Go to someone who uses glycolic acid.  It is the new form of removing a tattoo. Many tattoo artists have trained with removal, too.

    That is what I was going to say, tattoo with a low solution with glycolic acid. Like laser, it takes many sessions, and an interval between sessions, so it's at least one year before it is gone .

    Something else you can do is apply glycolic acid (50% or higher) weekly over it. It will lighten very little, though.

    No tattoo removal method is 100% perfect. Lasers can leave the skin whitish, and glycolic acid might not remove it all (but it doesn't leave scar). If the problem is that you don't like the tattoo, my suggestion is to lighten it just a little and then cover up with  a new tattoo.

    Also, again, laser in a tattoo studio is cheaper than at a doctor's, and usually the seller of the machine gives the training, so there's no risk.

    Good luck.

    I am a living proof of laser tattoo removal success. The procedure can be repeated depending on the advice of your dermatologist but here is how it works. The laser concentrates the energy to the ink until the latter gets fragmented into smaller particles enabling the skin to absorb the ink in a natural way. The penetration of the laser through the skin is painless and harmless.
