Another method is by cryosurgery where the pigment of your tattoo is being exposed to very cold temperature by being sprayed with a freezing agent (liquid nitrogen).
For this treatment, topical anesthetic is applied. Afterwards, dermabrasion is performed to help remove the top layer of the skin. This method is not the safest or effective as it can damage the skin and lead to scars. There are many home remedies that are out there but consider seeing an expert before causing any damage to your skin.
