Can I get a large tattoo removed by Dermabrasion?

Or are other tattoo removal methods better?

Unfortunately, microdermabrasion or Vibraderm is only for exfoliating the skin. It would be unable to remove a tattoo. You best bet is a laser.

My skin reacts negatively to anything that I touch. If i slightly scratch it or my clothes rub onto my skin, it swells up and itches like crazy. My skin rises and tuns red wherever I have scratched. This often happens on my face as well. I wanted to try dermabrasion but given my skin irritation issues, would that be a good idea?
