With these types of tattoos it’s all about removing the ink from the skin and the tattoo artist can remove them with some different techniques, and sometimes just removing the ink can be the toughest part! These two examples are easy to remove:
Dilate the skin, so it’s not too tight, and peel away. You should peel at the tip of the tattoo to avoid a permanent scar.
Roughly peel away the tattoo by scraping the tattoo as hard as you can with scissors or something sharp, then pull it out clean, leaving the surrounding tissue intact.

If the tattoo is very difficult to remove, the next best thing is to remove the tattoo with a small scalpel to try and remove as much of the ink as possible. In cases where the tattoo is quite difficult to remove, there is usually a small plastic implant placed inside the tattoo, such as behind the armpit to help pull the ink out.
