Told you that you were gonna regret ’em

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.
Excerpted from HERE. Also has a picture of the dumb fuck.

    There’s always reason for hope. Whoever thinks they can’t turn themselves around has obviously done the Hokey-Pokey….

    I was kinda hoping he’d use the tungsten rod.

  3. IN the NZ prison system, some time ago, the worst of the worst used to wind up in unit known as ‘D block’. Criminals being what they are, would have ‘D block’ tattooed on the face to show what a hard fucker they are. Someone on Corrections management must have had a sense of humor when they changed D block into a wing for Pedophilles. Of course, the facial tattoo now had a different meaning.

    Unable to live with this, one of these intellectuals (there were probably more than one tried this) took to his face with a belt sander. That and the following infection solved the problem of being self-labelled as a kid-fucker…

    That took more balls than getting the tats in the first place…and it shows a serious commitment to getting his shit straight. Good for him!

  5. A braver man than I.
