Do Tattoo Removal Creams Really Work?


Do you by chance have a tattoo that you absolutely cannot stand? Perhaps you went out and got a tattoo while drunk or you got one of a past fling that’s nothing but bad memories? If so, then consider yourself lucky. Some people get tattoos and they immediately regret doing so.

For them, it’s not so funny. The good news is that they may be able to fix things. You have a few options, those of which are typically getting a cover-up tattoo, getting laser tattoo removal, or just using a tattoo removal cream.

Yes – they do exist, so please don’t email me asking again!

The question isn’t whether or not they exist but whether or not they actually work and what options you have for creams in general.

I’m here today to share some information with you on which creams you might consider and why. Keep in mind, some tattoo removal creams may work for you and not others, vice versa. That said, you’ll need to do your own research if you want definitive answers.

Tattoo Removal Creams You Might Consider Using

Full disclosure, I’ve not had a chance to test out any of these personally because I don’t have a tattoo that I regret getting. Therefore, no need to use any of them. For those that regret their decisions, here’s the list…

Tat B Gone

This tattoo removal cream is a three-step process and it seems to be pretty well rated for the most part. Lots of people like this product because it’s easy to use, said to be effective and actually comfortable on the skin. Sure, you’ll need to be the judge of that, but the company says that they guarantee that your entire tattoo will be removed.

As mentioned, the product works in steps with the first step prepping the tattoo for treatment, step two breaking the ink down and step three fading it away. A one month supply is going to cost your $125 roughly. It’s more than most skin care products but worth the price versus living with a regret.

Wrecking Balm Fade System

Next on the list is a product called the Wrecking Balm Fade System. This product is an Amazon product with close to 200 reviews on it. The product comes with full instructions on how to use it and apparently it’s a waterproof cream that won’t restrict you this summer from spending time in the pool or ocean.

The balm is said to yield quick results and with no pain at all. The one thing that people are complaining about is that it doesn’t work. I guess you’ll have to be the judge here and try it yourself. The overall rating isn’t that great though.

Inked Up Removal Cream

Another Amazon listed product is the Inked Up Removal Cream. The product is said to progressively fade your tattoo away. The good news is that the cream will not clog your pores and it’s made with natural ingredients.

The product is said to help fix any permanent cosmetics or unwanted tattoo work and it was created by a team of tattoo experts. However, you need to do your own research here as the overall Amazon rating isn’t great at all. A 1.4 out of 5.0 is pretty bad really, but if you’re desperate enough to try it, then by all means, go for it.

Profade Three-Step Action

Another three step tattoo removal cream is the Profade system. This cream works similar to the rest of the multi-step solutions. The product is said to be natural, mild, gentle, and effective (according to the Amazon listing).

I read the listing and it stated that consumers could remove tattoos within just a few weeks. Does it really work? Tough to say given the 1.7 rating that it has. However, for $54, it’s much cheaper than paying for laser treatment. I can guarantee you that it’s also a lot less painful, but it might not work as well.

Which Is The Best?

Honestly, I can’t sit here and suggest that one is better than the rest. In fact, the only thing I suggest is that you do more research and determine which actually work. If all else fails, then just dive in head first and get some laser tattoo removal treatments lined up.

So, back to my original question, do these tattoo removal creams really work? Sorry, but I have no idea. Try one and see if it works for you.
