Tattoo Removal


If you’re reading this, you’ve probably found yourself in the tattoo regret phase. While tattoos have become extremely popular among all ages, according to the Harris Poll (one of the longest running surveys measuring public opinion in the US), about three in 10 Americans (29%) have at least one tattoo.


With rising popularity, it also stands to reason that there would be higher rates of tattoo regret as well. The same Harris Poll survey also showed that nearly one fourth (23%) of those with tattoos stated that they regret getting one.


There are a number of reasons that people decide to remove their tattoos. In fact, it is becoming more and more popular in the competitive working world. The main reasons people decide to remove their ink include:


  • A bad-looking tattoo: While there are so many skilled tattoo artists out there, sometimes people end up going to a tattoo parlor without any prior research and end up with an amateur tattoo artist that isn’t any good. Sometimes, poor tattoo work or misspelled words can be covered up or re-worked, but sometimes there’s no option but to have the tattoo removed.
  • Faded ink: While today’s tattoo ink holds up a lot better than the stuff used 20 years ago, some tattoos fade over time. Who wants a dull and blurry tattoo?
  • Poor tattoo choice: Remember when you wore that horrendous outfit, like every day, when you were 12 years old? But for some reason, you thought you were too cool for school. The same thing happens with tattoo choices. Whether it’s Bugs Bunny, Hello Kitty, or the words “No Regrets” largely tattooed across your forearm, what might have seemed like a good idea at the time, now just isn’t. It’s okay to move on.
  • Joining the military: While having a tattoo doesn’t necessarily prohibit you from joining the military there are some tattoos that will not be accepted. All of your tattoos will be assessed during the standard eligibility physical and are subject to approval. Some branches of service are stricter than others, but the location, size and subject matter all play a role.
  • Changing or advancing careers: While tattoos have become more and more accepted by society at large, many careers, particularly in the corporate world, still deem tattoos as unprofessional and, sometimes, downright unacceptable. Switching careers or moving up the corporate ladder may require removing tattoos, in order to be accepted and taken seriously.
  • Personal choice: Some people just don’t want their tattoos anymore. For a number of reasons, it’s time to move on!



When people decide it’s time to get rid of a tattoo, they first do a search about the tattoo removal process. Does it hurt? If is worth it? What does it cost? Does it actually work?


The laser tattoo removal works by select absorption of the light energy of the laser by the tattoo’s ink particles in the skin. This is how the surrounding skin tissue remains unharmed. When the tattoo ink particles absorb the laser light energy, they shatter into smaller ink particles. After each laser treatment, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink. This is why the tattoo removal process takes time and requires a series of laser treatments to shatter more and more of the ink and for the body to flush it away.



PicoSure is fast becoming one of the most popular laser treatments available on the market today. It is a FDA-approved picosecond laser with PressureWave technology. PicoSure’s laser energy bursts are measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second) and these ultra-short pulses specifically target ink particles much more effectively than traditional Q-switch lasers. Compared to Q-switch lasers (measured only in nanoseconds), PicoSure is more effective on colors that are difficult to remove and ends up requiring fewer treatments.



If a tattoo is holding you back from getting a job you want or keeps reminding you of past regrets, this newer tattoo removal process might be right for you. With PicoSure technology, the laser tattoo removal process is faster,  more effective and safer due to the recent advancement of the Picosecond laser technology.

The one problem we all will encounter in our lifetime at least once, the flat tire when we are driving alone. You don’t want to be stranded so I will give you tips on what to do so you aren’t stranded on the side of that road. This will take you about 15- 30 minutes, you will be back on the road in no time. You will need 3 things, spar tire, 4 way, jack.

Driving along the road to your music and then all of a sudden, you hear that pop noise and your car starts to swerve. Don’t freak out. You just encountered a flat tire. What you wanna do is find a safe location to park, for example if you’re on the highway, turn on your hazard lights so people can see that something is wrong and pullover as far as you can over the line away from traffic, but do not turn your wheel. After you come to a stop, apply the parking brake.

After you come to your senses, look out for traffic and when it is safe, get out of your car and open your trunk and get your spare tire, the jack to lift the vehicle, the 4 way bar to loosen the bolts off of the tire. Remember to always look out for traffic. It is always a good idea to keep a small rock, wedge, piece of wood in your trunk so that whenever you get a flat and your changing your tire, apply the object behind the tires so the car does not move.

What you want to do first is take your 4 way and turn the bolts on the tire counter clockwise to loosen the bolts. Don’t take the bolts off, just loosen them and after that, put the jack under the vehicle and find a sturdy spot underneath the vehicle, try to find something metal you can put the jack on. After you find the spot, raise the vehicle with the jack and then take off the bolts. After you take the tire off, grab the spar tire and finger tighten the bolts on, lower the vehicle with the jack but not all the way. Lower enough to where the tire doesn’t move. Now when you tighten the bolts, tighten every other bolt in order. This gives it that 5 star pressure. Turn the 4 way to the right. Lefty loose, righty tighty. Remember that for next time. After you tightened them enough, lower the vehicle and tighten the bolts completely.

That is how you change a tire and remember, stay in the slow lane when you have a spar on your car. Spars are meant to be on cars for a short amount of time until you get your tire fixed on your regular tire. Stay in the slow lane and don’t go fast, you don’t want your spar to pop. Hope this was helpful to you and good luck.

Steps to remember:

  1. Park in safe zone
  2. Turn on hazard lights
  3. Pull the emergency brake
  4. Apply wheel wedges 
  5. Slightly loosen lug nuts (lefty loose)
  6. Put jack under vehicle
  7. Jack vehicle up
  8. Loosen lug nuts
  9. Put on spar
  10. Righty Tighty (5 star pressure)

Now if you want serious tools for when you get a flat tire, I recommend a 1 ton jack or bigger. The bigger the jack, the quicker you will be back on the road.


How to be an Avid Coffee Drinker in the Workplace & Beyond.

Coffee has become an essential part of my day.  It’s a necessity to function and become the perky pleasant self that people expect me to be. With many years of experience in day-long coffee drinking, I decided to make a list to help others in their journey to becoming an experienced coffee drinker at the workplace.

1. Lack of Sleep


This is very important. Too much sleep may result in explosive energy after drinking a cup of coffee. The body needs less than 10 hours of sleep to drink coffee and reach a standard operating level of a conventional adult.  *Results may vary* Typically, more than 1 cup of coffee will be needed to reach a standard operating level.

2. Ironic Coffee Mug

Luckily there is a variety of mugs to choose from in order to show off your personality but also your current mood. The type of mug you chose to drink out of is very important. This will allow co-workers to know how to approach you based on what your mug shows.

3. Coffee Themed Shirt


To ensure that everyone you come in contact with throughout the day knows that you live for coffee; make sure to sport your favorite coffee shirt. You can pair it with a cute cardigan or a blazer for business attire. This shirt might be hard to choose out of your extensive collection, but don’t worry; there are 364 more days you can wear the other shirts.

4. A Backup…or Two

It’s simple, your coffee mug will soon be empty. As an experienced coffee drinker I have a found product that is not only spill proof but it keeps the coffee warm for up to 3-5 hours after the initial pour. This is the best product for an avid coffee drinker because you can now drink coffee ALL DAY! Your welcome.

Contigo: Snap and Seal Travel Mug

5. Four O’Clock snacko-awake-facebook.jpg

We all know life doesn’t end right after work. There’s a family, a social life, or a Netflix series that requires you to keep that standard operating level. If your backup coffee mugs are gone, you can look to these SWEET products: Chocolate Coffee Bean Treats. Yes, some genius decided to pair the delicious treat of chocolate + the coffee bean together, and make a variety of sweet treats to keep the caffeine buzz going all afternoon!

Following these 5 main coffee drinking rules may enable you to get through your work day at a standard operating level all day long! When the next day comes: Repeat steps 1-5 and enjoy the stimulating benefits that the coffee bean holds!

Why I Watch Professional Wrestling

Let me preface this post by answering the first question that comes to a reader’s mind after seeing the title. “You know that wrestling is fake, right?” Yes, I know that wrestling is fake. Pretty much every fan of professional wrestling nowadays knows that it is fake. Why doesn’t that stop me from watching it? Because professional wrestling is fake in the same way that all of my other favorite TV shows are fake. The Office, How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead are all fake. That doesn’t change the fact that these are all forms of entertainment. Before I begin explaining my love for the world of sports entertainment, I will give a professional wrestling 101 crash course to help you understand my point a little better.

Hulk HoganThe name Hulk Hogan is synonymous with wrestling. There are very few people alive that don’t know his name. He helped popularize the sport, with help from people such as Andre the Giant, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, and many others. During the height of his fame in the 1980’s, many people didn’t know that wrestling was fake, and this helped fans get emotionally attached to the stories.

Rock Stone ColdThe 1990’s and the early 2000’s were the height of professional wrestling. Some prominent names from this era are Shawn Michaels, Goldberg, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Many fans were catching on that professional wrestling is scripted and the outcomes are planned, superstars such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Triple H appear on Saturday Night Live breaking character. However this era is known for having some of the most passionate fans ever. People throw chairs and garbage in the ring when one of their favorite superstars loses. If you were ever going to be a fan of wrestling, this was the time to do it.

John CenaThen John Cena took over. He is the new face of wrestling in the mainstream. Almost everyone has heard of him and those who haven’t have been living under a rock. The following for wrestling is slowing down. It is almost seen as taboo when someone finds out that you watch wrestling nowadays. This might be better for wrestling as a sport, rather than a business. With the more dedicated fans sticking around, more is demanded from the athletes and the wrestlers are improving everyday. Rollins BalorSo on to the title, why do I watch professional wrestling? To be honest, I watch it for the same reason one would watch a movie or a TV show; for the payoff. When watching a movie, don’t you just love when the hero triumphs and the villain lies defeated? That’s why I watch. How about when a TV character finally reaches something they have been working so hard for? That’s why I watch. Just as movies have their slow moments, or a TV show has an episode that frustrates you, professional wrestling is meant to play with your emotions. You’re supposed to get mad, that’s what makes the high points that much better. As soon as I don’t get mad over the bad guy winning, or excited about the good guy doing the same, I will stop watching. If an important character in The Walking Dead dies and I feel nothing, I’ll know that I have grown indifferent and uninterested in the show. Until then, however, I will continue to watch every showing I possibly can. I’m actually going to an event on March 6th at the Resch Center. How many of your favorite shows do they allow on set during taping? Very few if any. I’m not trying to persuade you to watch wrestling, it’s not for everyone. I’m trying to get wrestling to the point where it isn’t taboo to talk about in public and hopefully where I can talk to other people about it.

If you want to be persuaded to watch wrestling, here is an article for you

If you are in to history like myself, here is the history of wrestling in the United States
