I doubt it is as simple as having it removed, removal of a tattoo is incredibly expensive and far more painful than the tattoo, sometimes costing up to 1000 per session depending on colour, placement and intricacy.
I highly doubt it has anything to do with the tattoo itself, is your friend certain that they are not merely connecting an unlucky period of time to the new tattoo, a lot of the time we subconsciously want something to blame for out bad luck or shortcomings.
You could try a cleansing, but what kind of bad luck have they been having, physical ailments, misfortune, something else?
Was the person who did the tattoo trained to been be a tattooist? did they comply to safety standards when it comes to blood borne disease and the correct sanitary practices, although potentially unlikely could her concern of bad luck be due to an incorrect healing of the tattoo or potential complications?
Questions you and your friend need to answer are; was is the tattoo of? Who was the artist? Why could this be happening?
Try having your friend do a cleansing, on themselves, the tattoo and their living space. Tattoo removal is really expensive, if they really feel it's the tattoo try getting another artist retattoo it into something else with a protection symbol (it's an idea but if you do that definately PLAN it out first). You could cast a cleasening spell, protecting spell and a luck spell if you wish.
I'm not here to tell if it's the tattoo or not, I'm here to tell you that there are things you can do if you feel that it is. Don't feel discouraged by people who do not believe in youregards experience.
Some Tibetan Buddhists believe that tattoos manifest in people's lives. The skin has blood flowing to it to keep it alive and you bleed when you get cut. So their theory is that because the tattoo is in/on the skin and it has blood flowing to it, it comes to life as well and so it manifests in the person's world. They believe it takes on a twofold mannerism. For example let's say I have a tattoo of barbwire on my chest: barbwire keeps things out, so the tattoo may cause more protection in my life or it could even lead to more isolation. If I had a dragon tattoo then I may find some wisdom but my life may go to chaos. This is why monks who were tattooed did so in a very ceremonial religious way. Just something interesting...
