  • When I got my tattoos, ... | Dr. John Mecker


    ...the first was pretty "spur of the moment". Nothing wrong with being a little spontaneous. I still believe that. The others were more thoughtful. A description of who I felt like I was. Some people know exactly who they are most of their lives. Some of us are just trying to figure it out as we go along. Long story short, I looked in the mirror one day, and my tattoos just didn't seem to fit any more. I like tattoos. I might get another someday, but it's my skin and I get to do what I want with it. Not that long ago my only option would have been to hide them, or act like i still wanted them. Things have improved. The experience of removing them was not exactly pleasant. It's about like it was getting them in the first place, (doesn't take as long, just more often;). I personally am just thankful to have the option. I'm also thankful for picking the right place to have it done. Brian has made me feel very comfortable though out the entire experience. I have never felt "judged", and to be honest, I think that was one of my biggest fears. I researched different places. Brian has the correct laser for the procedure (there are big differences), and is extremely professional. He's experienced, and knows how different skin heals at different rates. Some of my tattoos could be treated faster than others. He never rushed the slow healing areas. Different colors need different wavelengths, he knows which need which. He also "figured me out"- some people need more "breaks", I'm more of a "just get it over with" guy. The best part has been that he has been honest and up front with me about what it would take to achieve what I wanted, I appreciate that a lot. I would highly recommend "On Second Thought" to anyone.

    Thanks Brian.

  • One stupid decision that I made... | Bob


    ...haunted me since I was 19 years old - getting tattooed. It seemed like a great idea at the time, but it limited my entire life since then. I turned down offers to go to the lake, play golf, go running, or to do otherwise normal activities, simply because I would have to wear shorts and expose my tattoos. I didn't want to be that guy who showed up in pants to a backyard BBQ in August, but I was. As a dad, I also worried about how my tattoos and the restrictions they put on my life affected my son and the activities we could do together. I work for a professional firm, and showing my tattoos – either at work or out in public – is not an option. My tattoos were embarrassing, they limited my life, and they conveyed an image that I didn't like. Until I met Brian Kent and On Second Thought Laser Tattoo Removal, I thought I was going to be trapped in my own inked-skin forever. Now, I can wear shorts in public without embarrassment, and I can live the life that I want to live. Brian has truly given me my life back, and I can’t thank him enough. It has been entirely worth it to have my tattoos removed. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.
