We realize it was only inevitable that someone would develop tattoo ink that's easier to remove than the current kinds, which necessitate painful, expensive multi-session laser treatments that aren't always effective, but c'mon now: disappearing tattoos are to permanent body art what Britney's Las Vegas wedding was to the sacrament of holy matrimony. Expect a marked increase in stupid tattoos on sorority girls and frat boys when this product finally hits the market.
