What is Saline Tattoo Removal?


Botched Ink® is a gentle yet concentrated hypertonic saline solution for tattoo removal.  When it's implanted into the skin the area dries out.  If the skin contains tattoo pigment this will dry out too, lifting and removing the pigment during the skins natural healing process

  • Removes colour that's lasted too long, mistakes or tattoo regrets

  • Lightens faded permanent makeup ready for microblading or hair strokes

  • Lifts pigment colour from saturated or very dark brows


Any kind of tattoo removal is a process, it’s worth mentally and financially committing to a course of 3 treatments so we can assess how easily the pigment is removing from your skin

  • Most clients see improvements after 2 or 3 sessions

  • Initially, the pigment may look darker before it gets lighter

  • The pigment that sits deep in the skin comes up to the surface

  • This makes removal easier in further sessions

For some the goal is complete removal, others are looking for lightening so the area can be re-worked.  During the removal process, we are assessing and responding to the pigment, how deep it sits in the skin, is the area saturated with pigment and skin stain (the russet, lilac and warm colours) from years of top-ups.  The fresher the tattoo, the easier it is to remove


Botched Ink® trained technicians set their own prices, but as a guide expect to pay £80-£150 per session. A treatment appointment is 45-60 minutes with the first appointment is a little longer to include the consultation


Botched Ink® is soaked into the area to be treated, with skin opened up in a light skin needling type action.  You will have had numbing cream so this really isn't an uncomfortable experience



The Healing Process

You can see in this particular tattoo the grey pigment is quite deep in the skin, there is also some other faded russet pigment.  For this client, the deeper pigment looked darker during the initial removal sessions as pigment lifted up and out of the skin.  The closer pigment is to the surface, the quicker it will remove.  The client gets to at least enjoy normal coloured brows for a few days during the healing process.






















Benefits of using Botched Ink® for tattoo removal

Gentle during treatment:  Botched Ink® pH closely resembles healthy skin, meaning only a mild sting which disappears very quickly.  The formula includes Aloe Vera which really helps the solution soak into the skin, without needing to over traumatise you or your skin

Quickly dries the skin, forming a thin scab:  Skin treated with Botched Ink® starts to dry out within the first few hours.  For you, this means minimal inflammation and associated risk of scarring, plus the minimal risk of infection

Tattoos can look better during healing:  Many clients worry about what they’ll look like during healing, the answer when using Botched Ink® is the treated area usually looks better.  Unwanted grey or orange brows will look shades of brown during the healing process, so you’re likely to get complimented on your new eyebrows for a few days!

After 48 hours clients can shower and use aftercare:  When treated skin is fully dried you can begin using the prescribed aftercare serum, this makes scabbing and healing more pleasant.
