Is It Safer to Remove or Leave Tattoos?
 
Question: Does tattoo removal stop the toxic ink components from draining into the body, or does removal cause breakdown of toxic chemicals in the body? Is it safer to remove or leave?
 
 
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
 
I favor removal, while using iron-chelating supplements at the same time. Removal only removes the ink from the skin. Following getting the tattoo, the ink is deposited within the lymph nodes, tissue, and organs within days.
 
The best iron chelators include quercetin, baicalein, epigallocatechin gallate (as a supplement called Teavigo) and hesperidin. In combination they can provide a great deal of protection.
