“I turn down a lot of business, because I can’t do the coverup a client is asking for with the work they already have,” said Albert Smart, a long-time tattoo artist at Stained in Pain in Chicago, IL. “Tatt2Away® is a great opportunity to stop turning away clients and give them a second option. They can get rid of all or part of the bad tattoo and then cover it up!”

Tatt2Away is a non-laser, all-natural tattoo removal system. Unlike laser, it’s effective on all ink colors and pigments, and also unlike laser, fully removes the ink from the body rather than leaving it in the liver and lymph nodes. Tatt2Away is effective not only for people who want full tattoo removal, but through selective, partial removal, it gives both artist and client more coverup options.

Smart, and business partner Keri-Ann Wenckowski, have enabled Stained in Pain to become one of the limited number of Tatt2Away Centers designated for Chicago. They’d begun with investigating adding laser, but as Wenckowski noted, “It’s not always guaranteed. It’s expensive for the client. It damages the skin. It doesn’t remove colors all the time. There were a lot of downfalls to that.”

Preliminary conversations with clients have resulted in a number of them eagerly anticipating the non-laser option. Said Smart, “I have some that want a few things removed, and I have a bunch that every time they come in they want to know if I’ve figured out a coverup yet.”

And then there are those who aren’t regular clients but wander into the shop hoping for coverup magic. Said Smart, “We send lots of tattoos out the door. A lot of tattoos can’t be covered successfully, because they’re huge or stupid art. So this is great. Now we’ll be able to help those people, too.”

Tatt2Away is a specific patented method with a registered trademark. If you visit a location claiming to be a certified Tatt2Away center and they fail to use the template in your procedure, leave (and please let us know).
