ABC 13 tattoo removal

New Look Laser Tattoo Removal was featured Sunday, February 10, 2008 in a special report on Houston’s ABC 13 Eyewitness News. The story focused on the popularity of homemade tattoos amongst adolescents aged 14 to 22. Homemade tattoos can be applied by a variety of techniques. The most common method uses a sewing needle with ballpoint pen ink or india ink. The tattoos are popular amongst teenagers because they can be performed without a parental waiver (needed at professional tattoo shops). Fortunately, because homemade tattoos insert less ink into the skin, they are very easy to remove at New Look.
