Removable Ink?

October 27, 2006

I found this article online and it was quite interesting.

The idea of removable tattoos sounds bizarre to me, but I guess it would be a good thing for people who choose their tattoos too hastily. However, even with this new option on the horizon, I think people should allow themselves a sufficient amount of time to think about what they really want.

    I think this is a fabulous idea. It sounds so much healthier for people. Also, I can think of tatoos I would like to have now, but in 10-15 years they might not look right anymore. This ink would make it possible for people to express themselves at certain stages of their lives. I think being able to change your tatoos is an idea that if marketed correctly could become big business and money maker.

  2. I agree, I’m starting to warm up to the idea the more I think about it. For example, young girls these days like to get tattoos in places that tend to change (or sag, haha) when they got older. So that could be a good thing!

  3. I think this is a good idea. My grandpa has a tattoo he got during the war. It is really discolored and disfigured. You can barely tell what it is. I think that this is a good idea because once your tattoo looks like this, or when you get to old, and grow out of the phase it can be easily removed.

  4. Tattoos back then were made out of a more primitive type of ink, which fades more easily. My grandpa also had a tattoo, it was a name, and I was never able to actually read it. There have already been advancements in ink and this just seems like another step.
