On Monday we posted part one of our interview with Jack Morton from Rethink Your Ink about laser tattoo removal and, as he likes to call it, “editing”. But he wasn’t done yet… check out part 2 for more of everything you ever needed to know about tattoo removal.
We recently sat down and talked to Jack Morton of Rethink Your Ink. Instead of just one long interview with Jack, we decided to try something different. Below is the first of three installments, where Jack shares his thought on the current state of tattoo removal, the future of tattoo removal, and the medical field getting involved in the community.
During Hell City Phoenix last year, I spent some time with one of the guys that ran the shuttle between the airport and the hotel. When the tattoo convention inevitably came up in our conversation, he started bragging about this “intense neck tat” he had just had done. I was standing five feet away from him and couldn’t see any visible tattoos, just that this guy was sunburned and kinda wrinkly looking. I didn’t want to… but I had to ask. After a 15 minute explanation of the corporate policy surrounding the shuttle bus business, he informed me he spent 20 minutes apply Dermablend to cover his tattoo before work every day.
That was my first real exposure to someone using Dermablend to disguise/hide their tattoos. Seems they’ve picked up on a better marketing tactic now, having recorded the video below using the now-famous Skullboy (aka Zombie boy – or, if we’re getting legal, Richard/Rico Genest). If you do as much dicking around on internet as most people seem to on a Friday, you might appreciate Dermablend’s behind the scene video as well.
(Though I admit their choice in music is… well, make of it what you will.)
