Daughter needs to focus on school, not dad’s tattoos – Columbus Alive08.10.17

By JEANNE PHILLIIPS Columnist

DEAR ABBY: My 22-year-old son is going to visit his father and get his third tattoo. I dont like it, but I cant control my son. Hes an adult. His father is retired and lives on his wifes pension. It is my understanding they are wealthy.

My concern is for our 14-year-old daughter. My ex thinks tattoos are cool, and when he talks to her via Skype, he talks about the next tattoo he is going to get. Im afraid that when shes 18, he will take her to get a tattoo as a bonding experience.

His life is far removed from my daughters. He is surrounded by actors, entertainers and artists. Our child (hopefully) will have a rich, abundant life in an ordinary way. She is focused on her studies and does well in school because of her efforts. How can I impress upon my not-so-confident, shy child that getting a tattoo is not a good idea? MARY IN MISSOURI

DEAR MARY: Discouraging your daughter from getting a tattoo should be part of an ongoing conversation. Explain that unlike makeup or temporary tats the real thing is permanent. Once its on, there is no going back. It will be there for the rest of her life unless she has it professionally removed. Point out that tattoo removal is not only expensive, but also painful, and her skin will not look the way it did before she got inked; she will be scarred.

Hopefully, it may make her less susceptible to "bonding" with her father in that way. Ultimately, however, when shes 18 and an adult, she will make her own decision about getting tattooed or remaining ink-free.

DEAR ABBY: My brother and sister-in-law have four children, ages 11, 10, 4 and 3. They are financially strapped and cant afford to take the children to entertainment or cultural events because every dime is spent for essentials.

Im financially stable and childless. I take the older children to various activities once every month or so. I dont include the younger ones because they are unruly. I feel somewhat guilty for not including them. However, I want to continue doing it for the older children so theyll be exposed to various events they couldnt see otherwise.

Am I wrong for not wanting to be responsible for the younger children, or should I stop taking any of them out to be fair? TRYING MY BEST IN THE SOUTH

DEAR TRYING: Explain to the parents, if you havent already, that you would love to include the younger children, but that you are unable to because of their unruly behavior, which you are unable to control. What youre doing is not "unfair"; it is wise. If you were to take all four and not be able to control them, one of the little ones could be seriously injured.

Think of some other way you can make the younger children feel special. Perhaps taking them to a park occasionally would make them feel less left out.

Tattoo removal helps domestic abuse survivor move on – The Denver Channel08.08.17

LAFAYETTE, Colo. You can't change the past, but there are some things you can erase. Like a tattoo you never wanted in the first place. Norma Dominguez has one on her neck, that says "Mario."

"Just regret, why did I do it?," she asks, when she looks in the mirror.

Mario was an abusive partner, who made Norma tattoo his name in a visible place. Getting the tattoo, Norma says, was very painful.

But she has ended the relationship, and now she wants to get rid of his label on her body.

"Ithink this will just be complete and total freedom," she says.

Norma's employer is helping her pay for tattoo removal at YouBaby, a new skin treatment business in Lafayette.

Co-owners and sisters Susan Melching and Nina Smith hope their business will give people a fresh start, with treatments including skin rejuvenation, permanent makeup and laser tattoo removal.

"The whole mission behind you baby is empower people to feel better about themselves," says Melching, who has been an aesthetician for 30 years.

A tattoo removal takes a series of treatments, depending on the size and colors of the tattoo. Melching compares the process of removing a tattoo to breaking up a large boulder than breaking those pieces into even smaller pieces, until the body has absorbed all the pigment from the tattoo.

The first treatment for Norma took only about 10 minutes. It's painful, but Norma says getting the tattoo was worse. After the treatment, the tattoo is already beginning to fade, bringing a feeling of relief to Norma.

Laser technician Nina Smith says the clients are the reason she and her sister do this job.

"If can be an important piece of someone's life even if just for a minute or something like that it makes us feel like we're doing something worthwhile," she says.

Norma says she's looking forward to the tattoo fading, and moving on with life. She'll tell her 3 year old son about it someday.

"I want to make sure he knows that even if you make a mistake, you can come back from it."

YouBabyopened its doors on August 2nd. It's located at 390 Empire Road, Suite 200, Lafayette CO.

Mark Cropp refuses to remove ‘Devast8’ face tattoo – NEWS.com.au08.07.17

New Zealand man Mark Cropp, 19, made a public plea for a job as his giant face tattoo he got in prison gave employers a bad impression

THE man with the famed Devast8 tattoo has done a U-turn on having it removed.

Mark Cropp, 19, shot to fame globally after the New Zealand Herald interviewed him last month about his plea for a job on Facebook that was complicated by a huge tattoo covering half his face.

Now he has decided not to go through with having the huge inking removed after having the first session of free treatment from a laser clinic.

Cropps brother tattooed his face in jail during a night of heavy drinking.

Once it was started, I thought, I cant go back on it now, Cropp said about the image.

I wish I had stopped while the outline was there to be quite honest.

Cropp had been serving a two-year, three-month sentence for pulling a knife on a tourist over a drug deal gone wrong.

He initially said he had hoped to keep the tattoo and for a potential employer to look past it, but he changed his mind overnight when he became an international sensation, and accepted an offer from Sacred Laser in Kingsland to have it removed for free.

Mark Cropp's face tattoo is holding him back from getting a job. Picture: Mark Cropp/FacebookSource:Facebook

Herald Focus went to Cropps first laser removal session, where a section of his tattoo was worked on and partly lasered off.

On Wednesday, Cropp told Herald Focus he was working night shifts and things were going well so had put the laser removal on hold until he got used to his hours.

However, on Thursday, when asked about his progress, Sacred Laser said Cropp had rejected their offer and wouldnt be having further sessions.

The parlour expressed disappointment, but said their offer to remove it for free still stood if Cropp were to change his mind.

Cropp has responded this afternoon by text, through his partner, saying he doesnt want any more [of the tattoo] removed as he just wanted a job and now that he has one, he wants to stay out of the media.

After Cropp shot to fame last month, he received at least 45 job offers but turned them down.

He told the Daily Mail he had not accepted any, and was waiting for the right one to come about.

He said many of the positions required him to have a car but he wouldnt be able to get himself around until he got his first paycheck.

After his story went global, an Auckland company contracted him. He previously refused to have his face tattoo removed but said he would get rid of it before he started his job.

Scaffolding contractor Douglas George Herbert reached out to him and offered him a $NZ22-an-hour building site job.

Weve all made bad choices, doesnt mean we are bad people, Herbert told the New Zealand Herald.

Im a big brown man covered in tattoos myself, and I have been on the receiving end of judgment from people who dont even know me.

All my guys have got pasts, but were all united on the job site, where you are only as good as the man beside you.

Cropp got the tattoo one night in prison while drunk off home-brew. It was given to him by his brother, who shared his cell and used a makeshift needle and fermented food to make the ink. It took eight and a half hours to complete and Cropp admitted some of the motivation was to avoid being bullied by other inmates.

It was only supposed to cover up what was originally on my jawline, Cropp told the Herald.

Applying for work after prison, he said prospective employers had laughed in his face after seeing his tattoo, and he was forced to turn to Facebook in desperation.

He was jailed as a 17-year-old for aggravated robbery, claiming he needed money to support his pregnant girlfriend. He was battling to get off the dole and reclaim his young daughter from state care.

I was quite angry at myself because ... I said I wouldnt let her do it alone. And I pretty much failed, he said.

I didnt want my daughter to have the same upbringing that I did.

Man with DEVAST8 tattoo on his face finally gets a job – Metro08.06.17

Mark Cropp is so happy in his new career, he has made the decision to stop having the massive tattoo removed (Picture: Caters News)

A teenager who claimed nobody would hire him because he had a massive tattoo inked on his face while in prison, has now got a job.

As what? As a chicken chaser, thats what.

AndMark Cropp, 19, is so happy in his new career, he has made the decision to stop having the massive tattoo removed because the chickens dont care how he looks.

Meaning his DEVAST8 tattoo, now just says DEVAST.

The teenager hit the headlines last month, where he announced he had had started laser treatment to remove the marking which covershis cheeks, mouth and chin.

The dad-of-one, from Auckland, New Zealand, spent nearly nine hours being inked with the tattoo by his brother in his cell while serving a two-year sentence for aggravated robbery.

And after undergoing his first laser removal session last month, Mark has now decided not to have any further treatments.

Marks girlfriend, Taneia Ruki, 24, said: Mark has a job now, and thats all he wanted.

He doesnt want to go through with the laser removal now because he has a job and it only requires catching chickens.

He said the chickens dont care about my face they dont care whether I have a tattoo or not.

The laser clinic said we could put it on hold until he felt more comfortable with getting it removed but he was just happy to have a job.

He is really pleased to be employed, we are finally getting somewhere. Ive got used to the tattoo now so I dont mind if he keeps it.

Mark served two years and three months in prison aged 17, after he threatened a tourist with a knife during a cannabis deal which went wrong.

His brother, who was also his prison cellmate, inked him using a homemade needle made from a straightened spring and an ink made of burnt plastic, toothpaste and water.

Mark said at the time he was drunk on home brew made from fermented apples, bread and sugar.

He claims he woke up to discover the tattoo which his brother had promised would only be small and down the side of his jaw covered most of his face.

And after appearing in headlines last month, he wasinitially inundated with job offers.

But the teenager claims that most turned out not to be genuine or appropriate.

He signed a contract with his new employers last Tuesday and worked his first shift on Friday travelling to different farms across New Zealands North Island.

He is required to catch the chickens and put them into modules before they are taken to slaughter for fast food chains like KFC and McDonalds.

Working 12 to 14 hours a day, Mark is paid $16 NZD (9) an hour for his labour.

Taneia added: Mark didnt take one of the offers which came from the publicity, he went out and did his own thing and got his own job.

Our landlord told us there were people looking for work and he followed it up every day.

He knew the job was the only way to get us back on our feet so he is happy doing anything.

You can see the effects of the first laser session on one side of his face but he didnt want to go through the pain of it healing again.

Briar from Sacred Laser confirmed Mark had put his laser removal sessions with them on hold.

The PicoWay Laser Treatment is an Innovative Step Forward for Tattoo Removal According to Dr. F. Victor Rueckl – PR Web (press release)08.02.17

Tattoo Removal Now Offered by Lakes Dermatology

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) August 02, 2017

Once considered an identifying feature of various cultural sub-groups, such as sailors and carnival workers, tattoos have now gone mainstream. The last decade has seen an explosion of individuals getting tattoos as well as a societal shift in how people with tattoos are viewed. Now it seems that every pro athlete is showcasing a great deal of ink, and even suburban soccer moms can be seen sporting a tattoo or two. This rise in tattoo popularity can be seen by the fact that there are over 21,000 tattoo parlors in the United States. (1) Of course, one can often regret a choice made when one was younger, which has led to an increased demand as well for tattoo removal. Many licensed dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas, are thrilled with the new and innovative PicoWay laser treatment for removing unwanted tattoos.

It's quite fascinating to see how popular tattoos have become. A total of 45 million Americans have at least one tattoo, and Americans spend $1.65 billion a year on getting tattoos. (2) Nearly half (47%) of Millennials have a tattoo, making them the largest sector of the population to do so, and there is virtually no difference of those of a particular political persuasion concerning having a tattoo. Overall, 27% of Republicans, 28% of Independents, and 29% of Democrats have ink adorning their bodies. (3) Experienced dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology, know that many people eventually come to regret having a tattoo. A recent poll showed that 23% of those with a tattoo regret getting it. (4) The most common complaint is that people thought that they were too young when they got the tattoo, which was followed by the belief that the tattoo doesn't fit their current lifestyle or personality. Another interesting fact is that women are twice as likely than men to have their tattoos removed. (5)

Fortunately for those seeking to have tattoos removed, there is a new treatment option now available: PicoWay. This advanced treatment offers a better solution for removing tattoos than traditional laser treatments. Getting rid of a tattoo was always a chore that was often unable to be fully realized. A tattoo is hard to remove due to the fact that the ink is injected into the dermis, below the skin, which makes it harder to remove. Then there's the fact that traditional laser treatments have difficulty in removing certain colors, such as red and yellow. Medical professionals, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas, have long used lasers to break down the ink particles into smaller sizes so that the body can then carry them away. The problem was that traditional laser treatments often left the remaining ink particles too big for the body to remove, thus leaving the remnants of the tattoo still visible.

However, PicoWay changes all of that. This advanced treatment is able to treat multi-colored tattoos on different skin types to tremendous effect. PicoWay uses a unique picosecond (one trillionth of a second) laser technology to target colors matching the specific laser wavelength. These ultra-short pulses break down the tattoo into very tiny particles, no matter their color or original ink particle size. The body then uses its normal processes to dispose of the ink particles. One aspect of the new PicoWay treatment that has dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology, happy is that this new treatment generates less heat energy than traditional laser treatments, which means that the patient experiences far less discomfort than they would have using older laser treatments. While patients will need to have multiple sessions to get rid of their tattoos via PicoWay, they should start to see results after the first treatment session.

Of the new PicoWay laser treatment system, Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas says, "The new PicoWay treatment marks a tremendous leap forward in helping people get rid of unwanted tattoos. My clinic has recently installed the PicoWay laser device, and the patients I have treated with it are extremely happy with the results they have achieved thus far. Unlike older laser treatments, PicoWay works on all the colors found in tattoos and there is minimal discomfort due to the device's generation of less heat. Plus, PicoWay works on all skin types, including dark skin, which older laser treatments had a great deal of trouble with. Patients should start to see an improvement after the first use of PicoWay, and an entire session only lasts twenty minutes at most, which means a patient could schedule an appointment during their lunch break and then go back to work. PicoWay is also an exceptional treatment option for pigmentation and skin irregularities, such as pigmented lesions. If you had trouble getting a tattoo dedicated to an ex-girlfriend removed, you can now make your current girlfriend happy as PicoWay can safely and comfortably get rid of that unwanted reminder of your romantic past." (6)

Just like any popular trend, such as getting acid-washed jeans or having a mullet, there comes a time when people begin to regret getting a tattoo when they were younger. A sleeve of flaming skulls might not be the right fit for the corporate boardroom or a shift in military policy on tattoos may dictate the necessity of having some removed. Older laser treatments could help minimize the appearance of tattoos, but there were always issues with certain colors and larger ink particle sizes. The advanced PicoWay device offers experienced dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology, a new way to comfortably and safely remove all types of tattoos from different skin types. PicoWay has been FDA-cleared and delivers proven results that can literally wipe away a mistake of one's youth.

Program offers free tattoo removal for former gang members – 10News07.30.17

ESCONDIDO, Calif. (KGTV) -- A new program is helping former gang members get jobs. The program doesn't offer job training - it offers a reshaping of their appearance. A process that can sometimes, be painful.

The tattoos on Angelo Pamintuan's face and hand were meant to be permanent.

"I felt like the man, I felt cool, I felt masculine," the former gang member said. "I felt macho, I felt like I was tough."

When asked if he ever thought he would want them removed, Pamintuan said, "At the time I didn't see past that day. I was super myopic about it, short sighted, not thinking about consequences."

Pamintuan was sentenced to 13 years in prison for assault. But after he got out early, his outlook on life changed.

"When I look in the mirror, I will go over this, remember, regret But also be thankful for what it's brought me to now," he said.

Decisions that brought him to Doctor James Schultz.

With a grant secured by Supervisor Bill Horn, the doctor is performing free tattoo removal procedures for ex-gang members.

10Newsreporter Matt Boone was with Pamintuan on his first visit. After the procedure, the tattoo above his eyebrow was visibly lighter, though a bit swollen.

"I was trying to represent something in the past with it," he said. "And I'm trying to represent something now by getting it removed. That's about progress, rehabilitation, and redemption."

He'll have to go back six more times to have his tattoos fully removed. Even with the tattoos gone, he says, that part of him will never be erased.

"I don't think progress can truly be made by totally eradicating your past," he said. "If you can't learn from your past, you can't make real progress."
