    Posted: November/10/2009 at 8:39pm
This might be a dumb question, but a little while back i got a stick and poke tattoo with a sewing needle and india ink. needless to say, im not very proud of it and it's kinda big on my back. I realize that laser tattoo removal is expensive and painful, so i'm gunna have to live with it for a while.

but i was just wondering if it will be any easier or harder to get out than a professionally done tattoo? it's block letters of text on my back, so nothing's colored in or anything.

i read about this stuff called Wrecking Ball which is supposedly supposed to fade your tattoo over time. would this stuff work or not?

You should probably just have it removed by laser. Most states have tattoo removal clinics. The creams don't really work that well.

You could also probably have it covered up, if that's something you want to do. If it's really dark, you can have it lightened (at the removal clinic) enough to get it covered. If you go to an artist and talk to them about it, they can most likely give you some options.

wrecking balm is a crock of shit. If you like your skin, don't do it.

Got any pics? Stick n pokes are generally rather easily covered up.
I have titties.

Cover up may be your best option. If I remember right "india ink" is difficult to break down with the laser.  
I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
