Arlington, VA

A new discount tattoo removal shop is coming to the corner of Wilson Boulevard and N. Pollard Street in Ballston.

Called “Zap a Tat,” the shop is “a new concept in laser tattoo removal,” according to a help wanted ad on Craigslist. The store will attempt to undercut other tattoo removal services on price, according to the Linked In page of its owner, a Harvard MBA alum.

Zap a Tat will “provide high quality laser tattoo removal at a reasonable price,” according to the Linked In page. “We are testing our concept and will begin roll-out soon thereafter.”

The Ballston storefront, at 820 N. Pollard Street, is “our first retail location,” according to the Craiglist ad.

Tattoo removal is a booming business. About a quarter of the population between the ages of 18 and 50 has at least one tattoo, according to study published in 2006.
