A mistake is just a lesson to be learned, unless said mistake is a forearm tattoo with the answers to a middle-school geography quiz taken two decades ago. Make new space for not learning anything with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of tattoo-removal services at Lazarus Laser Tattoo Removal.
Using the most effective methods available, medical director Dr. Andru Ziwasimon Zeller and his team of certified laser technicians erase “Judgment Day=Y2K” tattoos and other short-sighted dermal decisions by fragmenting the ink with high-intensity beams so that it can be removed by the body’s natural mechanisms. Personal chemistry, the tattoo’s location, and the depth of the ink will effect the number of treatments required, but three to four sessions should be expected and needing seven or more is not uncommon. Each treatment lasts up to 15 minutes and can cause some discomfort, much like accidentally seeing your boss naked when walking in on his or her open-heart surgery. A one-time $35 physician fee is applied to all new patients, and pricing runs at $50 per session for tattoos smaller than a standard business card.
Lazarus Laser Tattoo Removal was started as an alternative to high-priced cosmetic dermatologists, and its judgment-free Clean Slate program reaches out to men, women, and juveniles in transition—helping them overcome the ink-based barriers that can scuttle job interviews for the most coveted positions, such as water-slide tester, travel writer, and tattoo artist.
