Someone recently sent an email asking us about where to buy in home (at home) tattoo removal kits. The timing of this question is pretty funny since the development of the whole Wrecking Balm / Walmart deal, which only recently came to pass.
So where do you buy at home tattoo removing products? The internet of course is the best place if you want to buy a good product and compare prices. Another good place to buy tattoo removal cream is right here.
But if you’re reading this, chances are you’re the type of person who likes to hold a product in their hands, turn it over, read the packaging, you know – you like to get a feel for what you’re buying and not just read about it online. (Ironic eh? )
If you want to buy something like Wrecking Balm, Tattoo Off, or Tat B Gone in a store, the honest truth is that your options are very limited. I will break them down for you here in a simple two option format.
Option #1 : As mentioned, Wal-mart and Wrecking Balm recently inked out a deal. The big WB made a deal to get it’s Wrecking Balm Tattoo Fade Kit distributed at Wal-marts all over the country. You can stroll to your local Sam Walton center, find the first aid aisle, pick up some Balm, and be on your merry way. As far as I know, this is the only commercial store that sells general goods (i.e. it’s not a tattoo specific vendor) that also sells over the counter tattoo removal creams.
Option #2: The only other option for buying such an item in store and not online is to head to your local tattoo shop and ask them if they carry anything for removing or fading tattoos. From running this site, I can tell you that some tattoo shops DO in fact carry these items, as we’ve had tattoo parlor shop owners leave comments about how good Tat B Gone is and that they stock in their store for their customers. Now I have little idea what percentage of tattoo shop owners do in fact carry such items, but if you don’t want to buy Wrecking Balm from Wal-mart, or somehow live in an area that has no Walmarts stocking it, a visit to your local tattoo shop is your best best for finding a tattoo removing cream over the counter.
If neither of these options sounds appealing to you – and I understand if that’s the case, because isn’t it easier to get a better deal and simply buy online? If that’s what you’re thinking right now as you read, I will give you a little secret: click here to save 55% of Wrecking Balm. But shhh! Don’t tell any one okay.
