Wow, that's a insanely crazy machine! I hope your tattoo is not on your good arm, unless your abadrixtrious with an insanely still single hand! Then you could remove all your friends tattoos as well! Perhaps you should get a temorary tattoo next time. ;)

Maybe you mean ambidextrous.

It is possible to make DIY a similar laser. The laser useful for this purpose is Q-switched Nd:YAG laser at high repetition rates. I've made a similar module but not q-switched and at low repetion rates for about 90€ .
These lasers works because they burn only the dark part of the skin without pain in a very short time(3*10^-9 s ), and lately the human blood carries out the rest of the damaged-->tattoed part of the skin previously hitted by the laser.
The problem is that the laser must be high powered, and/or focalised in a small spot, and if the tattoo is big this is a problem!
Then if you are good with physics and laser , than try to build yourself this laser. You can find useful information on the web and bought laser elements on ebay at reasonable prices.
