A Florida man who has turned his life around after multiple prison stints had face tattoos removed with a welding tool.
Eriks Mackus, 22, of Clearwater, was nearing the end of his two-year welding course when he realized the gang tattoos on his face would make it difficult to get a job – so he had a classmate remove them with a wire wheel.
A wire wheel is a grinder used to prepare a surface of the objects to be welded prior to the procedure, it stripped several layers of skin and the tattoos off Mackus’ face. All that remains is red skin that looks similar to a rash.
The ex-con bought gauze, hydrogen peroxide, an 18-pack of Budweiser and a bottle of Sailor Jerry Rum for Labor Day Weekend 2012. But it was not for a party.
Sailor Jerry Collins, the rum’s namesake, is ironically one of the most famous tattoo artists ever, and counts Ed hardy among his protégés.
Mackus said he chugged all 18 beers and went to work on the rum by the time Bodlak showed up with his welding toolkit.
