Once the word gets out about easily removable tattoos, the coolness factor for tattoos is bound to fall.

A Manhattan company called Freedom-2 is introducing a durable but removable tattoo ink. A dermatology professor at Harvard who developed many laser treatments for birthmarks and skin lesions, helped design and ink using FDA-approved, digestible pigment particles.

The tattoos will still be professionally applied with a standard needle. By using the Freedom-2 ink, they can be removed with a laser treatment that will release the ink to be safe absorbed.
