Tattoos: Understand risks and precautions

Tattoos might make you feel cool and are more common than ever, but don't take tattooing lightly. Know the risks and understand basic safety precautions and aftercare steps before jumping into tattooing! You could be the proud owner of a new tattoo in a matter of hours — but don't let the ease of getting tattoos stop you from making a thoughtful decision about permanent body art. Before you get a tattoo, make sure you know what's involved. Also, be certain that tattooing is the right decision for you. How tattoos are done: A tattoo is a permanent mark or design made on your skin with pigments inserted through pricks into the skin's top layer. Typically, the tattoo artist uses a hand-held machine that acts much like a sewing machine, with one or more needles piercing the skin repeatedly. With every puncture, the needles insert tiny ink droplets. The process — which is done without anesthetics — causes a small amount of bleeding and slight to potentially significant pain. Tattoos breach the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible. Specific risks include: 1) Allergic reactions. Tattoo dyes — especially red, green, yellow and blue dyes — can cause allergic skin reactions, such as an itchy rash at the tattoo site. This can occur even years after you get the tattoo. 2) Skin infections. A skin infection — which might cause redness, swelling, pain and a pus-like drainage — is possible after tattooing. Other skin problems. Sometimes bumps called granulomas form around tattoo ink. Tattooing can also lead to keloids — raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue. 3) Bloodborne diseases. If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various bloodborne diseases — including tetanus, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. 4) MRI complications. Rarely, tattoos or permanent makeup might cause swelling or burning in the affected areas during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams. In some cases, tattoo pigments can interfere with the quality of the image — such as when a person who has permanent eyeliner has an MRI of the eye. Medication or other treatment — including possible removal of the tattoo — might be needed if you experience an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink or you develop an infection or other skin problem near a tattoo.

An In-Between Season Must Have: Trench Coat
There are some firm rules in menswear: Bermudas for summer and trench coats for autumn. Trench coats are the perfect invention for confusing weather – too cold for a t-shirt but to warm for leather or wool. Once you have a pair of jeans, t-shirt and a cool trench coat you are all set to go. With new trends in trench coats you can either stay classic or make a statement. PS: There are some safe zones to keep the cool look during ‘in between’ seasons. In variety of trench coat the military is, unsurprisingly, no exception. 1. The Classic Yes. It’s the Burberry who labeled the beige trench coat. It’s classic, chic, and perfect for an urban look. It doesn’t have to be Burberry though. It’s better if it is though… 2. The Statement Option You can be classic in autumn style with a trench coat but still make a bold statement with the pattern or colour. Stay away from khaki, beige or black and go with blue, orange, green or even red. Your trench coat can work for more than just keeping your suit dry. 3. Make a difference. Go with knee-length ones. This option is a must for shorter men. But you can still try it even if you a tall guy. Try to stay minimalist with shorter trench coats. 4. And the military green √ The original trench coat’s khaki colouring was camouflage. It’s the key of being cool. On a more practical level, it’s also perfectly in tune with the navies and neutrals that populate your winter wardrobe. The whole article and the style advices are on the blog. Click here.
Awesome Idols With Tattoos
More and more we are seeing idols getting tattoos and I think its GREAT that their companies let them do this. In the past I'm sure it would have been a HUGE no-no to get any ink done. Here are a few of my favorites: Changsub of BTOB His lift chest, arm, and back of his shoulder are covered in quotes! Ravi VIXX Ravi has three tattoos!! One is on his right arm says "Forever Young," another says YOLO on his chest and the third one is pretty new - its roman numerals (meaning unknown!) in his forearm. Jay Park How could he not have been on this list lol LOOK AT THEM ALL (and in this pic, his shirt is on!) Hyorin Sistar Hyorin has a huuuuuuge cross on her stomach which must have seriously hurt. Taehyun WINNER Taehyun has a lot of really tiny tattoos and I absolutely love him for them. Jaejoong JYJ Actually, all the members of JYJ have the other members' names tattooed on their body! They're extremely close :3 Hyuna How sweet is this tattoo though?! Taeyang He's often covered in fake tattoos but THERE ARE REAL! Taeil Block B He's working on two full sleeves!!! Zico Block B Okay so really I should just be listing all of Block B at this point hahahaha Amber Along with these in the picture, Amber has one small tattoo on her left wrist! Youngguk BAP THERE IT IS. Junhyung B2ST A fan of words, Junhyung's tattoos are all just lettering! Ilhoon BTOB Ilhoon coming at you in Spanish! It means No one can be like God. CAP Teen Top CAP! You are no longer a teen! GD The king himself. Who else?! Who are your favs?!
Kpop Tattoo's!
So wanted to share what I did over the weekend because I am just to in love with it! During a trip out to visit a friend we planned on getting one thing each, I was doing my EXO Leaf and she was getting MCR. She already has a few BTS tats she loves (still trying to talk her into another group lol) The day before It was done we decided on the bts friendship one that has lyrics and one of the hearts each. OMG the experience of getting both of these, I will never go to another artist again! he's a really nice guy and same age so we talked about 90's tv shows and old school music, BUT damn his machinery was fantastic, no loud vibrating noise which in turn smoother lines and less time having spent going over lines. Plus I was actually able to drive back home (5 hrs same day & got these on my driving foot) No Problem. He has this tape that seals the tat and after 4 days can be peeled off. EXO tat! BTS, the lyrics plus did the 2 middle hearts! and you can see her other ankle has BTS as well! The MCR consists of the album covers all together. Fam tag!

Pulling Teeth With Coconut Oil
I haven't used tooth paste in a year or so. And at 38 years old, still cavity-free! That's because I use a fabulous (and natural) method called oil-pulling. There isn't a toothpaste on the planet (that I know of) that can do these six things, and not contain hazardous material such as bleach, sodium fluoride, triclosan, and sodium lauryl sulfate, just to name a few. Do I brush my teeth? Of course! But I do so before I pull with oil and again right after. I am sharing this card with you because it because a hot topic in the comments of @JordanHamilton's card about Washing Your Toothbrush, which you can see here. Here's how I go about making my own in batches: Ingredients: * Natural coconut oil * Peppermint essential oil * Eucalyptus essential oil * Myrrh essential oil Tools: * Sheet pan (that fits in the freezer) * Aluminum foil * Miniature paper candy cups * Squeeze bottle (with a tip) 1. Place a sheet of aluminum foil over a baking sheet (to catch your drips, drops and mistakes). 2. Set out as many candy paper cups that you can fit onto the sheet. 3. Melt the oil and place into a squeeze bottle. 4. Carefully, fill each cup ALMOST TO THE TOP. Leave a smidge of space at the top. 5. Add ONE DROP of each of your essential oils to the cups. Go in order so you don't get confused. 6. Place the tray on a flat surface in the freezer. A fridge will work too. 7. Be sure to simply lay a sheet of aluminum foil over the tray. Don't seal it, just lay it. 8. Let these harden all the way and store them in a freezer ziplock bag in the fridge. I hope you all found this super helpful. This is super easy and doable. I hope you give this a try. @alywoah @TurtleyTurtles @keith2web @LAVONYORK @EasternShell @Animaniafreak @atmi @kekers96 @buddyesd @DevonArce @MaricelvaRomero @CallMeMsDragon @stephosorio @petname83 @rhanes @AlyssaGelet818 @DeniseNishikawa @AlexisRiver @AlyssaGelet818 @ScarletMermaid @kimnam94 @SarahRegulski @MikeyJBenedict @LysetteMartinez @BlackXShield @YunBao @darcmana @daljiyong @FalseLove @anitadutoit @MyAffairWith @SarahHm11 @moralesdaisy199 @yashiracruz @leinyhmen01 @SigDev @humairaa @SeoInHan @IzamarPalomo @JelliBelli111 @spacewasp @PrincessNae @karolinehoffma
