Is saline tattoo removal cheaper than lasers?

I saw on Youtube that the doctor puts salt over the wound at the end of the procedure. I'm not sure what the purpose is, probably to absorb the ink, even though it must be pretty painful. However, if it does the job and it's way cheaper, I would give it a try in a heartbeat. I have a ridiculously bad tattoo from when I was in high school and I've never had the courage and money to have it removed. What should I know about saline tattoo removal?
