Oscar Helps Tattoo Removal

February 23rd, 2011 by

This weekend, all of Hollywood gets incredibly excited over the dull, predictable spectacle that is the Academy Awards.  Not exactly a tattoo fiesta, but if you’re at all familiar with how the Oscars work, then you’ll know that aside from a lavish evening complete with the possibility of receiving an award, Oscar attendees also take home “goody bags”, absolutely filled with a ridiculous assortment of free goods, aka swag.

This year is something of a first for the Oscar goody bags, as well as the tattoo removal industry.  Maine based corporation Preval Health, the parent company of WreckingBalm Tattoo Removal system, will contribute 100 gift bags – each with a two month supply of WreckingBalm – to the Oscars Gifting Lounge, which will commence tomorrow, Thursday, February 24th.

WreckingBalm® the first in-home FDA approved hand held device for fading or removing unwanted tattoos. Discovered and formulated by two laboratories in over two-and-a-half years with a team of specialists, Doc Wilson has produced a simple process that just takes 3 minutes every other day. This unique system safely combines three technologies and two simple methods of skin exfoliation and removal. The first uses an FDA-approved mechanical hand-held medical device that gently, but effectively, removes the upper layers of the epidermis (outer skin layer). The second step uses a chemical serum that penetrates deep into the underlying lower layers, breaking up the cellular matrix in which the ink pigments are embedded.

“It’s amazing exposure,” says Joan Crocker Social Media Manager, Preval® Health. “We’ll get a picture of the gift bag sent to us so we can use it for our website, PR and marketing. With so many celebrities opting for tattoo removal this seems to be a perfect fit for the gift lounge.”’

Not sure what to make of this, but I do know that given Hollywood’s notoriously fickle approach to life, it probably makes sense to offer celebrities a chance to quietly get rid of their tattoos in the privacy of their own home.  With this step into the world of Hollywood by something tattoo related, can it be long before we go the opposite route and have tattoo artists on hand in the Oscars Gifting Lounge?  I don’t know about you, but I would love to see Steven Spielberg accept an Oscar for Best Picture, complete with a bandage around his neck where he was tattooed only several hours earlier.

Who knows, right?  It’s Hollywood.  Anything can happen.
