In Q&A in the Kitchen Season 4, Episode 12, Jack Lowe, Jimmy St John, and DaVo answer questions submitted by our YouTube viewers about lightening tattoos and how tattoos are affected by weight gain and loss.

  1. Acceptablefreak - "Can you lighten a very dark tattoo?"
  2. EarthsGeomancer - "Tattoos if you are planning on losing weight. Should you wait until you lose the weight? Can distortion happen after some weight loss? Thoughts?"
  3. EarthsGeomancer -"Tattoos on the arms of men with hairy arms. Yay or nay? Would a tat with only black ink work better there than something with color? What are concerns? Thoughts?"
