The horrible thing about misspelling a tattoo is there is not way to erase it and start over.

Fake Tattoos Leave Permanent Scars for Boy

Thu, 12 Aug 2010 04:56:27 PDT

Thomas Collins convinced his mother, Katie, to pay the 13 dollars for two black henna tattoos – one on each shoulder.

“It seemed like fun, and the tattoos only cost five Euros each,” said Katie, who lives in Lancashire, England. “Plus, the man doing the tattoos was based in the hotel complex, so I assumed it would be safe.”

When their family returned home, the black dye had faded, but Thomas’ arms began to itch and hurt. He also developed a high temperature.

(image)

When I looked at his arms, I saw the outlines of the tattoos had been replaced by angry red blisters,” Katie said. “It looked awful – the blisters were raised and even looked a greeny-yellow color in some places. His arm was weeping and fluid was seeping out where the tattoos had been.”

Thomas suffered a severe allergic reaction to the paraphenylenediamine, a chemical sometimes added to henna to make it black, in his Bart Simpson and skull tattoos.

Henna tattoos are usually harmless when they have their natural brown or reddish color, but when the black dye is added they have been known to cause severe allergic reactions and even require plastic surgery.

Although Thomas’ reaction went away after two months, it triggered new allergies to certain medications and everyday products, such as printer ink, rubber, lawnmowers and sun lotion, which Katie said has been upsetting for Thomas.

“I’m just glad Thomas didn’t have the tattoos all over his body,” Katie said. “The doctor said that he had one of the worst reactions he had ever seen.(image)

Getting a tattoo is an adventurous, but not easy thing to do. Among withstanding the pain that is inflicted as they perform the procedure, there are other precautions after. Also, be careful about which tattoo parlors to go to. Whoever you go make sure that they are very intense and serious about the procedures for sterilization and precautions,

After you get your tattoo, it is then your responsibility to take care of it from here on after. As soon as the tattoo artist is done, time yourself. Maker sure that your bandage is on for at least 2 hours before removing and when you do remove it, make sure that you use an antiseptic.

There are five important things to remember for tattoo aftercare.

1. Regularly clean up the tattoo read with some sort of ointment or cream. Do not se anything that has scents or colors when cleaning, it could infect it.

2. Avoid hot tubs for the next two weeks after getting your tattoos. Do not swim anywhere and be weary of getting it wet in the shower. Soap can really mess up your tattoo so make sure it does not get near the tattooed area.

3. If you notice peeling or scabbing, this is normal after a few days. If the scabbing makes you uncomfortable then feel free to remove it with a moist rag (do not rub). Repeat 2-3 times a day.(image)

Tattoo Girl

Nowadays there is a vast variety of tattoo design and body location combinations that make fantastic tattoos for girls and it can often be difficult to decide which tattoo design to ink, and where to site it. This article is dedicated to girls looking for ideas and advice to help them plan their next tattoo

(image)

In the past it was mainly men who decorated their bodies with tattoos, however over the past 50 years or so tattoos for girls have also become incredibly popular. The rise in the popularity of tattoos among girls followed the women's rights movement, as social attitudes changed to embrace equality. While many girls still prefer the classic tattoo designs styles and body locations that are also popular among men, recent decades has also seen an explosion in incredibly feminine and elegant tattoo design styles that have been developed especially for female tattoo enthusiasts. There are so many different design styles around that there really is something for everyone.

There are so many options for girls planning a new tattoo that choosing a design and where to ink it can be rather daunting. It is incredibly important to really take your time making a decision. Tattoos are permanent and girls who get inked on the spare of the moment usually live to regret it.

The two biggest choices to make when planning a new tattoo are which design to ink, and where on the body to ink it. Some girls prefer to pick the design first, and then think about where best to have it tattooed, while other girls pick the body location first. There is no right or wrong way, although I personally recommend considering both the design and body area simultaneously when planning a new tattoo.(image)

Since thousands of years tribal tattoos are being inked into the skin of human beings. The practice may somewhat differ from what tattooing means now but people still get tribal tattoos done on their skin because of their striking design and appearance. Earlier tattoos were done mainly with the reason of belonging to a tribe. People with the same type of tattoo on their skin belonged to the same tribe. Apart for this reason there were also many other reasons for getting a tattoo.

(image)

For some tribes tattooing was a path to social status. The Maori tribe was one among them. The Maoris were a tribe of New Zealand and tribal tattoos let them ride the ladder of social status. Their tattoos were known as Moko designs. But Moko designs were not only used for social status, it was also used for health purposes. They believed that by tattooing Moko designs on their skin they can preserve their youth. That is why women of Maori used to tattoo their lips and chins. An old story says when an old woman started losing her eyesight; she tattooed her hands and face in order to gain back her eyesight.

In Hawaii, the inhabitants had their own tattoo God, temples for tattoo Gods and also tattoo priests. Before starting a tattooing session they used to pray to the tattoo God to make the process less painful, so that the person upon whom the tattoo is done doesn't die and the wounds heal as fast as possible and they also pray for design to be beautiful.(image)

Singer Katy Perry has got the same Sanskrit tattoo as boyfriend Russell Brand and, like him, on the right arm.

Both tattoos read 'Anuugacchati Pravaha', which means go with the flow.

The singer showed the tattoo Tuesday when she performed at the launch of Volkswagen 2011 Jetta at Times Square here. Dailymail.co.uk. reports that the tattoo was on the inside of her right arm.

Brand revealed his tattoo on the front cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

Perry already has a tattoo of a strawberry on her ankle and has inked Jesus on her wrist. The couple is planning to get married in October this year(image)



The celebrity tattoos that have sparked a Latin craze among schoolchildren

Wed, 04 Aug 2010 00:27:18 PDT

Celebrity Latin tattoos may be fuelling a revival of the ancient language in schools, it emerged today.

Pupils are increasingly demanding to study the subject, according to an exam board, as tattooed celebrities such as David Beckham and Angelina Jolie enhance Latin's profile.

The OCR exam board today launched a new Latin qualification aimed at teenagers as secondary schools increasingly offer the subject, either during the curriculum or after-hours.


(image)

But examiners urged pupils not to emulate model Danielle Lloyd, whose Latin tattoo is riddled with errors.

While Beckham and Jolie's Latin inscriptions are grammatically correct, Lloyd's is meaningless, they said.

Her tattoo, 'Quis attero mihi tantum planto mihi validus', which is etched on to her shoulder, is intended to translate as 'To diminish me will only make me stronger'.

But experts say the words in fact translate into something more akin to 'Who I wear away for me only for me strong'.(image)



Tattoos for Men

Mon, 02 Aug 2010 10:00:21 PDT

(image)

Contrary to what a few people believe, men and tattoos have had a long, long history. The origin of tattoos can be traced back to more than 5000 thousand years ago. Back then, the concept of tattooing was used for a number of reasons - as a signature symbol of a particular tribe, as a mark of seniority/rank/superiority, for religious reasons, for medicinal illustrations, and many more. However, thanks to celebrities like David Beckham, Angelina Jolie, Robbie Williams, 50 Cent, Johnny Depp, Eminem, Britney Spears and Jessica Alba; getting a tattoo in the modern era is mostly seen as a way of showcasing one's personality and making an individual style statement. All the above-mentioned celebrities are famous for having sported varieties of tattoos, and therefore can very well be labeled as the 'unofficial tattoo ambassadors' of the 21st century. In this article, we will have a look at the different possibilities when it comes to tattoos for men. Therefore, without wasting too much time, let us have a look at a few tattoo ideas for men.(image)



Daniel Craig to star in Dragon Tattoo

Mon, 02 Aug 2010 09:41:16 PDT

Bond actor Daniel Craig has been roped in to play lead in the American adaptation of Stieg Larsson famous mystery novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

The actor will play the role of journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the movie, which will release in December 2011, followed by two other movies based on Larsson's Millennium trilogy.

The shooting for the film is scheduled to start in Sweden once Craig finishes working on his Cowboys and Aliens.

The actress opposite Craig is still to be finalised,with possibilities believed to be Ellen Page, Mia Wasikowska and Rooney Mara.

The film is being directed by David Fincher and Producer Scott Rudin.(image)



LADY GAGA Tattoos

Sat, 31 Jul 2010 06:03:04 PDT

(image)

Lady Gaga has had her left arm tattood, which can be prominently seen in her new “Telephone” video, since August 2009. She got it in Osaka, Japan on a midnight tattoo run when she was in the country getting Hello Kitty photographs taken.

The cursive script is a Rilke quote, a poet who Gaga calls her “favorite philosopher.” It’s written in German, Rilke’s language, but translates in English as:

“Confess to yourself in the deepest hour of the night whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. Dig deep into your heart, where the answer spreads its roots in your being, and ask yourself solemnly, Must I write?”

Some claim this is just dribbling German romanticism, but anyone who’s ever come to a crossroads in life where you are forced to choose between two things knows that there’s something too this type of melodrama. Sometimes it is the only thing. There are many kinds of death we endure in our lives before our heart stops beating, it doesn’t mean that you will stop breathing if you don’t do what you dream of doing, or what makes your feel the most at home in the world. But part of yourself does get packed up and forgotten.

Lady Gaga may mean something a little more literal, she may really think that she may die if she does write music or wear artsy-fartsy clothing, or inspire the devotion of millions (maybe billions?). During many of her onstage performances she collapses to the floor and tells the audience that she’s like Tinkerbell, and they must applaud to make her live(image)



Miley Cyrus Tattoos

Sat, 31 Jul 2010 05:41:20 PDT

Miley Cyrus has proven she 'Can't Be Tamed,' and when she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday, she appeared to be sporting a new tattoo. The word "LOVE" is inscribed on her right ear, although she has not confirmed if it's real or not. Perhaps it is a permanent dedication to her 20-year-old Australian boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth? If the tattoo is real, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus would have had to sign-off on it because Miley is only 17 -- in the U.S., it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo without parental permission. The singer already has "Just Breathe" inked on her ribcage. Of course, that ink honors the memory of one of her close friends, who passed away from cystic fibrosis over three years ago. ("Just Breathe" is the slogan for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.)(image)



Larsson's Millennium trilogy hits the million mark on e-books, 'Dragon Tattoo' No. 1 on Kindle

Fri, 23 Jul 2010 19:21:46 PDT

The most well known and most popular mythical creature depicted in tattoos is the Japanese dragon. It is more popular than any of the other mythical creatures, such as the phoenix, mermaid or gryphon. This may be due to its shape because the long and flexible dragon that descends from Japanese tattoo traditions practically fits on every part of the body - covering full backs, winding himself around arms or coiling up on the chest of the carrier.

The Japanese dragon is usually depicted as a wingless, heavily scaled snake-like creature with small, clawed legs and a camel shaped head with horns. It is associated with sea, clouds or the heavens. It has whiskers and a beard, and it is deaf. In the West we think of dragons as terrifying beasts, but in Japan the dragon symbolises wealth, good fortune, good luck, kindness, power and freedom.
