  1. Hi, I just thought I would add some old military wisdom. When I wad in the Army of course one of my friends (he was actually my NCOIC) had a tattoo of his wife. So of course they got divorced. He went to the military dermatologist to have it removed. First surprise the dermatologist said don’t it’s a nice tattoo. Second he takes him into removing her name. For removal he have him busy regular old 4×4 gauze and told him to wet it with salt water, then rub the area he wanted removed until it just started to bleed. You know like when you have see what people do to themselves when they have a mosquito bite or poison ivy. Then leave it alone and let it heal. Repeat as necessary. After the first rubbing you had to really look closer to try and make out that the was something there and no scarring. He just needed to do it one more time and gone. So please get this word out. Even if they only get it as faint as it wad after his first round that should make a cover up much easier. Oh as much add I hate to say it the plain old squids (Navy) were the ones that developed this method that works.
