Almost everyone has stretch marks on their bodies. Some people don't mind having them and embrace them as part of life. Others become extremely self-conscious because of them. These people will do just about anything to have their stretch marks eradicated from their bodies. They'll try expensive lotions, make-ups, and sometimes even surgery.
But there is a new way to improve the appearance of stretch marks, and it involves tattooing. It takes only a few minutes, but can drastically change the appearance of stretch marks and make them seem non-existent.
Brazilian tattoo artist, Rodolpho Torres has integrated a special type of tattooing that erases the appearance of stretch marks.
Torres' methods are secret, of course, but he says he uses striped marks camouflaged with flesh-colored ink and tattoo shading to make stretch marks disappear. The process has worked miracles on many people in making their stretch marks disappear or at least greatly decreasing their appearance.
The process takes roughly four to five weeks for the ink to really take effect, but so far it seems like it's working. And to his credit, Torres only posts "after" pictures that his clients have taken themselves.
Some dermatologists are concerned about Torres' process, saying tattoos are permanent, so if your skin changes, you'll still have the ink on your body, which may look weird or different in the future. But Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz, a plastic surgeon, willingly admits that this is by far the easiest process to get rid of stretch marks.
