New Technology Creates Biz Opportunity in Tattoo Removal



Getting the tattoo of your ex-wife’s name removed from your bicep could prove a little less painful thanks to a new tattoo removal technology — and you could get in on the ground floor. The American Institute of Education is offering training and equipment for a new tattoo-removal method that utilizes a proprietary natural gel that is applied in much the same way as the original tattoo.

A modified tattoo machine is used to ensure the gel penetrates the skin. The gel then reacts with the chemicals in the tattoo pigments to clear away the ink. If the number of aging baby boomers and Generation Xers with fading and wrinkling tattoos is any indication, the demand for this new business idea will surely be on the rise.
