No, hydorquinone will not work to fade a tattoo.
Hydroquinone decreases the formation of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the pigment in skin that gives it a brown color.
Hydroquinone topical is used to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, chloasma, and melasma.
A tattoo is not melanin so this won't fade it.
