Tatoo Removal

Check with Ron Hendon, owner of Midnight Iguana Tattooing here in Athens. He also
does Tattoo removal. He does not use a laser. I can't remember the name of
the chemical he uses but it does not burn, scar or discolor your skin the way
a laser does. Basically what he does is re-tattoo over the existing image and
the chemical breaks up the ink. It's also much cheaper and heals quicker.

I have not had one removed but I have seen pictures of ones he's done in the past.
He has a tattoo on his lower leg that he has removed part of it to show people
how it's done. Just another option to check into.
