What is R20 Tattoo Removal?

As we have mentioned before in our article before, it is a new technique which came out in 2012. This method is different from conventional laser tattoo removal because the frequency of the treatments is more packed. What we mean by packed is that this method treat a tattoo four times a day with 20-minutes gaps in between sessions. So you would expect the treatments in a day will probably be over 2 hours in total. The purpose of the gap time is to allow white vapours formed during each session to dissipate so the whole process is more effective.

How does it work?

Same as conventional laser tattoo removal, the beam breaks down the ink into much smaller particles. Then the body will absorb and get rid of the ink naturally. (please refer to 11 Questions about tattoo removal.)

Why R20 Tattoo Removal?

There are a few reasons to this question:

1. The first and foremost reason is what most people are concerned about – the effectiveness. With this new technique, about half of the tattoo ink can be removed in a single day, compared with the conventional methods which may take you a few months to have the same results.

2. Time. Conventional methods would take you up to 1 to 2 years to completely remove a tattoo with a decent results. Because this new technique condenses all the treatments together, potentially the process can be shortened to a few months. This is the key reason why a lot of people are fascinated about this new method.

3. Cost. The cost of R20 Tattoo Removal are greatly reduced because fewer treatments will be needed compared to conventional laser tat removal methods. Those who used to think that a tat removal is expensive can now afford the cost of this new technique.

What colours of tattoos can R20 Tattoo Removal treat?

Same as conventional laser tat treatment. Dark colours tattoos are easiest to be removed. Different colours of tattoos will require different wavelengths of laser beams to break it down. A general rule of thumb is the paler the colour, the more difficult for it to treat.

Does it hurt?

Gang Tattoo Removal – Bryon Widner

We’ve spoken in some length in other articles regarding the reasons and motivations for tattoo removal and hard empirical studies into the reasons why people want to have tattoo removal. We’ve even spoken about the “end of history illusion” in which people are less likely to imagine their future selves. A lot of reasons may seem trite in comparison to wanting go have tattoo removal because you were once part of a gang and racist tattoos adorned on your body.

Before tattoo removal Bryon Widner had gang related tattoos all over his body.

Let’s look at the amazing story of Bryon Widner. Bryon Widner was once a member and the founder of the Vilanders gang of skinhead. Widner was married in 2006 and had a child together. His wife’s children also embraced him as a father. However, although he had made a tremendous effort to change his past behavior with the help and love support of his family, he found it extremely difficult outside his family and skinhead gang to find opportunities for work and acceptance by the general population. He was an outcast in the most common places we usually take for granted like supermarkets.

Deciding to leave the skinhead gang and culture is also a double-edged sword. Having decided to leave, he was put into danger by other gang members seeking harm to him and his family. Widner decided his only way to redemption was to seek laser tattoo removal, which he knew would be an excruciating and agonizing procedure. However, seeking tattoo removal laser surgery was expensive. Widner had no job and not enough cash to pay for it. His wife, Julie reached out to an anti-hate group called One People’s Project for help. Through the group, they found T. J. Leyden a former neo Nazi skinhead. Leyden put Widner in contact with the Southern Poverty Law Center and through an anonymous donor they had enough money to begin the tattoo removal process.

Even with the danger of his family and himself Widner decided to be filmed for a documentary. Widner was on the documentary “Erasing Hate”. By going public, Widner explains, “Maybe some angry teenager will realize I wasn’t on any great mission for the white race.  I was just a thug.  If my story can help someone out there, then great.” Through out the whole process, Widner went through 25 agonizing surgeries over 16 months to completely remove his tattoos. When the documentary aired, Widner and his family moved to an undisclosed location to live a normal and happy life. There are many resources for gang tattoo removal.
