There are some creams but basically all your doing is scrubbing the skin away & forcing your body to replace it thus thinning the pigments. It would be an incredibly painful & slow process. Most tattoo removal requires multiple laser treatments several months appart that break up the pigments into small enough particles that the body can remove them.

It depends on the kind/type of tattoo.. but generally speaking only laser will be able to remove it completely (or let it cut out). No cream will do that.

If you have a real tattoo, that is permanent. You will be able to get rid of it by having a laser tattoo removal. Although it doesn't really erase it from your skin, it will be less visible. If you use creams, I think that it may take a very long time before it actually fades and you may not like the results.

Laser removal has come a long way over the past few years and that's the most common and effective method. Another is to have the tattoos gone over with an ink that matches your skin tone. It can take a long time and might not be that effective - a lot depends on the original tattoo. You would have to speak to a good tattooist to see if this might work.

i think using of an washing soap or detergent on that area may work for this but u have to rub it with scrub,
