I realize this thread is is a few months old, but at least my first post is about something useful. I found this clinic in Taipei>> http://www.revahealth.com/cosmetic-plas ... oo-removal
I just emailed them myself and will keep you posted on prices and whether or not it actually fried off my old ghetto biker tattoo.
I assume there will be some scarring and some ink left and that it will take many sessions of pain, but at least then I can do a cover-up without having to choose a bigger darker one to mask my already dark tattoo. Oh and the lightening with ink and cover method does work, but you will be bound to choosing at bigger, darker tat. If your tattoo is tribal style art, get laser removal first. That's why lasering first in so nice, it will lighten even the darkest tats for covering.
Is lasering a word? I bet there's and English teacher or two on this forum who knows.
