Don’t Buy the Hype, Paul Wall’s Tattoo Detox

July 19th, 2008 by

Paul Wall a rapper and his Dad released a product called Tattoo Detox, that in their words (from the press release) “Paul Wall, famous rapper and jeweler, is known for his tattoos. Paul’s father, Michael, is a long time user of alternative health methods. Through Michael’s research into toxicity, he discovered that tattoo ink is not regulated, so there are thousands of formulas that include lead, arsenic, beryllium, cobalt, nickel and other heavy metal toxins.”

In a nutshell they are saying Paul Wall’s Dad who uses alternative health methods is selling his own method because tattoos aren’t FDA regulated… ironically Tattoo Detox isn’t FDA regulated… this is the disclaimer at the bottom of the website “Tattoo Detox products and the information on this site and in product labeling and packaging have NOT been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, so therefore, is for informational purposes only and is not intended as a substitute for advice from a health care professional.

I’m not one to rip on the alt health crowd, so to each their own, but if you really have a health problem related to your tattoo SEE A DOCTOR!!

Some fun facts about the product:
Q: Do I have to use this forever?
A: No, once your body detoxifies, you will no longer need Tattoo Detox. However, we do recommend that you start taking Tattoo Detox again each time you get a new tattoo.

Q: Are there any side effects I should watch out for?
A: No, but if your body detoxifies to quickly you may feel “flu like” symptoms. In that case, simply reduce the dosage until you start to feel better.
