Getting tattoos is not exactly the most comfortable thing in the world. Whether you like it or not, engaging a tattoo artist to do your body art will always be a painful proposition, what with the repeated jabs of needles done all throughout the procedure. This is why people who get tattoos are often perceived to be really tough. Think Dennis Rodman and you'll get an idea.
But as far as toughness in the face of tattoos goes, Rodman has nothing on this University of New Mexico teacher whose thing for tattoos led him to have his entire head covered with intricate tattoo designs. Next to Bruce Potts, Rodman, with all his tattoos and piercings, would seem like a schoolgirl. See his photo to see why.
Do you know much about body piercing lingo? If you don't, then don't fret. Here's a look at some of the most common body modification terms from KLTV 7:
Transdermal implants: Implants that are put beneath the skin but protrude outside, like metal spikes.
Subdermal implants: Implants covered by skin, like inserted into bone plates or forehead horns.
Scarification: The procedure of removing skin, with chemicals, or instruments to make permanent skin scars.
Tongue splitting: The process of dividing the tongue down the middle into two sections that can be independently manipulated at will. The muscle can be cut through various methods, such as with a scalpel, string or burning tool.
It is not something that would give you a migraine, but it is indeed quite a problem when tattoos start to lose their appeal. In fact, if those hearts, flowers, snakes or whatever marks you had your tattoo artist painted on your body start to annoy rather than amuse, you might as well start thinking of ways on how to get rid of them.
After enduring the painful process of getting those now regrettable marks from a licensed tattoo artist, you are now finding ways to get rid of these body marks and hope that you don't have to go through a painful (again?) solution to address the dilemma.
Good thing there is indeed a painless way to tattoo removal. Rank My Tattoos provides an article that talks about a wonder cream that can successfully remove tattoos within a couple of weeks. Here is what the article has to say:
Generally, tattoos are pretty cool and all that. But since getting a tattoo involves, well, breaking the skin, it is in your best interest to get your tattoos from licensed sources, since they usually follow standard hygiene practices.
Get them from basically fly-by-night tattoo "artists" and there's a possibility you'll end up like the people in this Reuters report:
Remember those movies about the Japanese criminal underground? There's Michael Douglas's Black Rain, and Dolph Lundgren's Showdown in Little Tokyo, an otherwise forgettable movie if not for the luscious Tia Carrere.
At least as far as these movies are concerned, what else do Japanese gang members have in common, aside from their usual brutality and general meanness? Tattoos. Elaborate, colorful and ultimately beautiful tattoos.
WOMEN'S attitudes towards tattoos have greatly varied over the years; from initial repulsion to outright fascination, thanks largely in part to the willingness and adventuruous spirit of popular women personalities.
Whether they be breast tattoos, lower back tattoos (a favorite among females since it makes them feel sexy or so I've heard) or ankle tattoos women practically have them from any part of their anatomy.
