Nuviderm is THE at-home-remedy... but my friends who have used it haven't really been happy with the results. There's another product out there that doctors can prescribe, but it's supposedly carcinogenic (from the nuviderm website). I'm not inked myself, so I haven't had the opportunity but a lot of my friends have. Other problems were discomfort (it burns like 10,000 suns one said) and for one friend a few mild infections through the treatment process. Here's the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Cheaper than laser treatments but with a similar discomfort level. 2. Less risky than surgery. 3. Private procedure that doesn't require you to leave home. 4. Most tattoos WILL fade to an acceptable level, completely hidden usually as soon as you can tan again. Cons: 1. Slight risk of infection. 2. Requires dedication and time. 3. Zero doctor supervision. 4. No method except surgery will completely remove all tattoos, expect a little leftover ink in your now-faded tattoo.
