The Doctors issue a warning against attempting a DIY tattoo removal -- especially if you are considering using a cheese grater!
They discuss a man who used the kitchen tool in an attempt to remove his tattoo after getting the idea from a video on YouTube. The wound left by the cheese grater caused the man extreme pain and heavy bleeding. And despite his effort, the tattoo removal was not successful and he had to seek medical attention at the hospital.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says she has seen this method before in her practice and strongly urges people looking to remove their body art to go out properly.
She notes a tattoo is implanted pigment in the second layer of the skin, and the best way to remove one is with a laser treatment that uses heat and light to shock and disrupt the pigment. She notes it will usually take multiple treatments to remove a tattoo, over the course of a year.
Dr. Batra also notes the wounds caused by these DIY removal treatments can lead to numerous medical complications.
