The safest way to get a permanent tattoo removed is by going to a professional. He or she may use a number of different techniques to remove it, including cryosurgery or laser surgery. In recent years, laser treatment has become the preferred method for tattoo removal. Q-switch lasers are the most common lasers used for this purpose. [1]

 

If you are willing to take a chance on other methods, you can try removal creams, salabrasion, or trichloroacetic acid at home. Beware that these techniques are not 100 percent effective and can actually cause other problems, such as infection or rashes. [2]

One way to get a tattoo removed would be through using laser removal. This can be fairly painful, and you'll have to go back a few times to get the job done right. The way it works is that a laser will attack and break up the ink under your skin.[1]

 

If you want to still have a tattoo, you can get a coverup. There are many fantastic coverups that can get rid of virtually any tattoo that you don't like.[2] This may be the way to go if you were going to remove it and get another one in its place. Here is an example of a great coverup:
