Self removal of unwanted tattoos.


Tattooing has been around since early civilisation, with origins that can be traced back to Otzi the ice man dating from the fourth to fifth millennium bc (Renaut, 2004). Various methods of tattoo removal are described in the literature ranging from salabrasion as described by Aetius, a Greek physician, in 543ad (Scutt, 1972) to laser treatment in the late 20th century (Goldman et al, 1967).
