Ink Busters Review
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Living with tattoo regret can be difficult for ones self-esteem. You may have thought that your tattoo would continue to look new and not change in shape. However, as we age, our skin can slacken, tattoos may fade and that once desired tattoo may no longer be desired. This is when you should consider an OTC tattoo fading product or even tattoo removal treatments.
We came across an acid peel that is considered an effective approach. However, the effects of TCA are often negative. This product is known as Ink Busters tattoo removal cream. It is a peel system that is an alternative to laser tattoo removal. Please read our Ink Busters review to learn more about this product and its ability to diminish the look of tattoos.
According to the manufacturer and Ink Busters reviews, this formula contains TCA. The manufacturer claims on their website that TCA is doctor recommended to radically fade and remove tattoos. Our staff has found studies that have shown that TCA can pose potential harm to the skin.‡
On the company’s website there is information suggesting that newer tattoos will come off easier than older ones. However, painful side effects may occur when using TCA. That is why we feel you should elect alternative products that do not use ingredients like TCA or even Hydroquinone and Cashew Nut Oil. All of these ingredients have been linked to harmful side effects in the past †.
Effectiveness and quality of ingredients is important when electing a product to address the appearance of tattoos. However, price is important as well. This product is marketed for less than $50 online. We feel this is affordable when compared to options that cost more than $50.
According to the manufacturer, noticeable results may be seen in just a few applications. This formula is intended for all tattoo colors and this product should only be applied once every six weeks. Be sure to review the directions before using this product. To see how Ink Busters compares to products that do not contain TCA, please refer to the product review grid.

Main Concerns on Ink Busters:
When reviewing Ink Busters, we found that this formula uses TCA to achieve tattoo removal effects. TCA can cause negative side effects like skin peeling, burning and scarring if used in high concentrations. Although it is very effective in the tattoo removal process, we do not recommend the use of at home TCA products as some individuals have permanently damaged their skin.
There are other options on the market that have the ability to fade tattoos without the use of harsh chemicals and acids. Try to avoid products that use TCA, Hydroquinone or even Cashew Nut Oil.
Ink Busters Conclusion:
On the product’s website, Ink Busters is marketed to radically fade or remove most tattoos of any color. The manufacturer claims that this product contains TCA- an ingredient that has been shown to promote negative side effects.‡ It appears that this product is sold in two sizes and retails for under $50.
