If you have ever had a tattoo you’ve later come to regret then you’ll no doubt know just how distressing that can be. Whether it’s the name of your ex or just something you got drunkenly that was never a good idea, having a bad tattoo means either being branded for life or going for painful and expensive laser surgery.
But there’s a good chance that all that could be coming to an end thanks to an experimental cream from a student in Canada. The student’s name is Alex Falkhenham and he’s a PdH of pathology at Dalhousie University. The ink will work by stimulating a process of replacement for the cells that contain the tattoo ink. No injection, no inflammation and eventually the tattoo will fade away entirely. He’s currently looking to patent the technology and presumably that’s good news for those who can’t wait to get their hands (or the small of their backs) on the product. What we do know is that the expected cost will be about $4.50 to remove a 10 centimeter area.
Teenagers, watch out for your parents sneaking into your room during the night with tubes of cream…
