Alex Falkenham is a 27-year-old PhD student at Canada’s Dalhousie University in Halifax. He’s created a topical cream that can remove tattoos. His cream should “help to clear away most of the ink from the original tattoo, causing far less pain and residual scarring than laser tattoo treatment,” according to Medical Daily. And it’ll be a whole lot cheaper. “A 10-by-10 centimeter area would cost about $4.50 per treatment.”
So far Falkenham’s cream has only been tested on the tattooed ears of pigs.
