how do you remove a tick once it is completely buried under the skin?

I heard that you should put Vasoline on it. It suffocates the tick and forces it to the surface to breathe.

Take a cotton ball, put some hand soap on it and put it on top of the tick. The soap will suffocate it.

Or get some nail polish and cover it. Same for chiggers.

I enjoy digging them out, but if it's truly deep submerge your arm in water and drown it like everybody says

Put on some green and brown camo face paint, a bandana, and use a Rambo knife to wrestle that bad boy out. Or you can do it the wussy way and use nail polish or soap.
