Does It Work: Wrecking Balm Tattoo Remover

(KFVS) - There are so many lotions and potions that promise to get rid of tattoos, but can you really rub off something that's inked into your skin? The Wrecking Balm Tattoo Remover says it can, but does it work?

"I got my tattoos 10 years ago, and now I want them gone," April Lutes said, adding she regrets getting them on her chest and ankle.

When she saw the Wrecking Balm Tattoo Removal commercial enough times, she bought the $170 product hoping it would help.

Using a gel, cream and buffer three minutes a day, three days a week, and the Wrecking Balm says it removes the tattoo.

"It's really easy," Lutes said. "You just put the cream on and buff away."

No doctor appointment and no pain from laser treatment is OK with Lutes, a busy mom.

Initially, Lutes noticed the Wrecking Balm buffer seemed to blur the edges of the tattoo.

"Just a vibration feeling. It does feel gritty because the substance is gritty," Lutes said of the buffer, which seems like a microdermabrasion kit. "Like sandpaper on your skin and doesn't really hurt or anything."
