Tattoo’s are popular to say the least but many people who have adorned their bodies with tattoo’s have regrets.  Removing a tattoo  can be expensive, difficult and leave unsightly scars.  But help may soon be on the way.  A tattoo removal cream is being developed at Dalhouse Clinic in Halifax Nova Scotia.  The work is the result of research being conducted by Alex Falkenham.  The idea is that when a tattoo is made the ink is ingested by cells called macrophages.  These cells engulf the pigment and this creates the tattoo.  This cream penetrates the skin and destroys the macrophages causing the tattoo to fade.  The is being further developed.
