Tattoo removal tech that can get rid of tattoos that look like computers can be a $600 or more option for a tattoo removal company, according to new research.
Tattoo removal company Kino is selling software that uses a computer model to simulate a tattoo, allowing people to get rid “like a computer,” says CEO John Zolota.
The company is currently offering it for $299.95 to $599.99 on its website.
Zolota, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Michigan, says the idea is to simulate the appearance of the tattoo, then simulate the removal process.
He says the software can be used on people with “tattoos that are more visible than others,” or people who are very close to tattoos.
Kino’s tattoo removal software has already been used by people who wanted to remove tattoos that they had on their arms, or had them on their legs.
It was also used by a man who wanted his right arm to be removed by laser tattoo removal.
“We’re getting lots of calls from people who want to get a tattoo removed like a computer but they don’t know what they’re doing, or they have no idea what they want,” ZolOTA says.
“They want to remove their tattoo, but they’re concerned about what they’ll look like.”
The technology can also be used to remove facial tattoos, but it has never been tested in humans.
Zoleta says the company is working on making it more accurate.
He says there are about 3 million tattoos in the U.S. and the company has found that some of those tattoos look “like computer-generated models.”
The company has been in the tattoo removal business for a while, but recently found it was more popular with clients who were looking for more of a professional, automated tattoo removal process than with traditional tattoo removal services.
Zelota says the reason is that tattoo removal is more expensive.
The company is offering the technology to people with tattoos that are “more visible than other tattoos,” or who are extremely close to one.
“For a client that has a tattoo that is more visible, they might want a computer-model tattoo removal,” Zulota says.
