How do you remove a race number tattoo!!??

As the title says, How do you get rid of those transfer tattoo race numbers??


last year, my first race using these was also my last of the season so I wasn't too fussed about it. 

This year I got other events coming up soon and I can seem to get rid of it, I've tried hot water, cold water, olive oil (club friend suggested), dish scrubby and washing up liquid....  but the B****** is still there!!


Any suggestions very welcome (except for sacrificing small animals to the God Racenumbericus - I have limits)

    just use baby oil and cotton wool and rub in circles.  It'll come off.

    I have the WD40...  sadly I left the baby oil at work

  • Nivea makeup remover with cotton wool worked a treat on mine this weekend! 

  • If all else fails, nail varnish remover

    I've done it! Didn't have any Nivea make up remover but I did have some Nivea for men deep cleansing facial scrub stuff.... 4hrs later and its still tingling - but the tattoo's gone


    thanks everybody!

    I've just used clear parcel tape, in a leg wax style, to remove mine. worked well.
