Yes I had one removed from my arm it was about, 1/2 inch by 41/2 inches, and it looks great. That was 3 years ago and you can barely see the hairline scar it left.
The only thing it must be in a spot where it can be easily removed.  If you can pinch the area of the tattoo and pull up on the skin, than it can be removed.  I can't believed I waited so long to do so.

I am also wondering about the creams, I have a gang related tattoo I am desperate to get rid of but no money to do the laser thing. I contacted the better business bureau on a couple of the creams with no luck so if anyone has any input please let me know!!!

am so excited. I used to keep on getting passed over at work for promotion. Finally I
decided the hummingbird on my neck (that I Loved) had to go. I ordered Tat B Gone and after about 9 months my hummingbird was gone.

Well that was about3 1/2 months ago.
Today it happened, I was promoted to floor supervisor of a new branch with$1000 a month raise.

I hated to see my bird go but I love making $12,000 more a year

Just to give you a fair warning: do NOT waste your money on robarker.com - tattoo removal for $20. I was stupid and thought is was a good deal. First of all you only get an email. Then I had to go all over town looking for the darn stuff. And what happened in the end? Nothing changed on my tattoo and I was left with a horrible rash. I don't think these things should be mixed together. Mix things myself - I don't think so. Don't try unless you are a trained chemist!!

Just a fair warning to everyone... Do NOT waste your money on robarker.com - tattoo removal for $20. I was stupid and bought it. For $20 all you get is an email. He tells you what you ahve to buy and what you should mix together to make your own tattoo removal formula. Well I had to run all over town to get all the 'supplies' - another $20 wasted. After mixing everything all I was left with was a horrible rash/ No change to my tattoo at all. Unless you are a chemist DO Not try this!!

Tat B Gone is a miracle product that isn't a complete rip off like the other brands. The 'not acceptable' BBB file and complete lack of hard data, explanation of product, Doctor's approval, or any sort of guarantee shouldn't worry anyone.

The creams containing alcohol and other common products are really worth $60 a pop. Our product... err "their" product is the only way to go.

Half the tiny number of example photos we look bad anyway, so we... I mean "they"... must be telling the truth! Its a wonder this product isn't widely used, has so many outraged customers, and is only sold online where there is a safe distance between buyer and seller.

And, of course, when you see consumer message boards warning against people throwing away hard earned money on this product a loyal customer always pops up to defend the company. Its a co-incidence that they all have the same IP address and are all located in Atlanta where the scheme... I mean "company" is located.

***Seriously don't waste your money. I and everyone I've talked to that have used it /hate/ Tat B Gone. You spend a load of money on the first month or two, then since you've committed naturally you keep using it hoping that sooner or later it will actually work. You don't want to feel like a sucker, so you keep paying for a year or two until you've given them nearly $1,000. After that you've got a smudged tattoo, no money, and a bunch of jackasses at Tat B Gone laughing all the way to the bank.

My advice - if you can't afford laser removal consider dermabrasion or excision. Especially the latter if its small. SAVE YOUR MONEY
