Risky? DIY Tattooing Trend

So what is DIY Tattooing. It should be dated back to that days when so many tattoo addicts buy tattoo kits online and do tattooing themselves or tattoo their friends. That is so-called “DIY TATTOOING”.  Without any professional tattooing skills and aftercare for tattoo,many adults end with infection requiring antibiotics while some end with scarring or a trip to corrective tattoo artist to fix the DIY work. The dangerous trend is said to be growing.

DIY tattooing trendDIY tattooing trend

UK public health group, Environmental health group, The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, The CIEH, all of such internatiional instution call to ban cheap tattoo kits being sold online cos it leads to so many skin problems and other interactive infection with disease. The group is concerned DIY Tattoo Kits often don’t come with appropriate safety instructions or aftercare advice, which could lead to infections – or even death – if the tattoos are applied wrongly.

The biggest problem is that some tattoo inks being used are not real tattooing ink and many people take a reaction to it. The DIY tattooers do not employ hygienic practices, there are many infections which may be transmitted but perhaps would have no initial indications.

Meantime, some companys stand out to prove their products and clear this kind of ban.It appears with at least eight tattoo parlours in Gilbert, the industry is indeed a trend.

They only sells products and inks which have passed safety checks and that all equipment and inks it sells is fully EU certified and compliant. The tattoo needles they sell are sterilised before being blister packed. The company also sells other hygiene and aftercare products to reduce infection risks, and gives aftercare instructions.

The problems lies in some untrained tattoo addicts cos they don’t have any professional tattoo knowledge and skills. They even don’t know how to recognize defective and licenced tattoo kits, what to do after tattooing, how to protect from being infected.

How to tattoo-professional guide (2)

July 13, 2010

Aftercare for Your New Tattoo:

Now,after you have your fresh new tattoo, don’t think your work has been done.You also need to take good care of it! From this point, your artist is not responsible for any infection or problems you may have with your tattoo if you don’t take proper care of it. It is very important that you follow these guidelines.

Leave That Bandage Alone!

Your artist took the care to cover up your new tattoo for a very good reason – to keep air-born bacteria from invading your wound. Yes, as pretty as your new tattoo is, it is still a wound. Leave the bandage on for a minimum of two hours. Excitement of having a new tattoo will make you want to remove the bandage so you can show your friends, but your friends will just have to wait until later.

Wash and Treat

After removing the bandage, use lukewarm water and mild, liquid antibacterial or antimicrobial soap to gently wash away any ointment, blood and/or plasma and to completely clean the area. Do not use a washcloth or anything abrasive. Your hand is your best tool in this case. (If your tattoo feels slimy and slippery, you have probably been oozing plasma. Try to gently remove as much of this as possible – when the plasma dries on the skin surface, it creates scabs.)

Then pat (do not rub) the area firmly with a CLEAN towel or paper towel to get it completely dry. Follow with a very light application of your choice of ointment. A&D vitamin enriched ointment would be my first choice, but if you don’t have any, Bacitracin or a similar antibacterial ointment is acceptable.

Do not use Neosporin. This is a wonderful product for cuts and scrapes, but not for tattoos. Some can have an allergic reaction to the Neosporin, which causes little red bumps. When the bumps go away, so does the ink, and you end up with a polka-dotted tattoo.**

Bathing, Showering, Hot Tubs, and Swimming

Yes, you can (and should!) shower with a new tattoo. It’s OK to get your tattoo wet – just don’t soak it. Submerging your tattoo in a bath or hot tub can cause serious damage, so you’ll want to avoid those for 2-3 weeks, but showering is perfectly fine as long as you don’t saturate your tattoo. If you get soap or shampoo on your tattoo, just remove it quickly with water. Swimming – whether it be a pool, fresh water or salt water – should be avoided for at least 2 weeks.

Scabbing and Peeling

After a few days, you will notice some peeling and possibly a little scabbing. Excessive scabbing could indicate a poorly-done tattoo, but a little is sometimes normal and there is no need to panic. Apply warm moist compresses to the scabs for about 5 minutes 2-3 times a day to soften them and they will eventually come off on their own. (Do not apply ointment or lotion to a softened scab – wait for it to dry) You will also start to itch, just like a sunburn when it begins to heal. The advice here is, don’t pick, and don’t scratch! If the skin itches, slap it. If it is peeling, put lotion on it. And if it is scabbing, just leave it alone. Your tattoo is almost healed, and now is not the time to ruin it!

Protection from the sun

After your tattoo is healed, from now on, you will always want to protect it from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. These can fade and damage a brilliant tattoo very fast.

Tattoo Removal Options and Alternatives ( your last choice)

If you already have a tattoo, you’d better not remove it cos the cost you need to pay for it is unaffordable somehow and of course you will suffer so much pain.

If you really wish to partially or completely remove your tattoo, you should first consider your options and decide which method might be best for you.

Laser Removal

Today, lasers are the most common method of tattoo removal. They work by targeting the ink with pulses of highly concentrated light that break the ink into tiny fragments, which are then cleared away your own immune system. However, this isn’t all done with just one treatment. The more treatments you have, the more the laser can penetrate to destroy the ink. But, the more treatments you have, the more damage you do to your skin, causing painful blisters and scabs that can eventually lead to scarring. Experts in removal therapy say that technology has advanced to the point where scarring is minimal, sometimes non-existant, but this can vary depending on the situation.

Laser removal can be painful to your wallet as well. Depending on your tattoo, you may need 1-10 sessions, each costing in the range of $250-$850 per session. A large, professional tattoo in color could cost thousands of dollars to remove, and the effectiveness of the removal still isn’t guaranteed.

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy, or IPL, is a dermal enhancer currently being used in some spas. Instead of laser light, it uses high intensity light in pretty much the same manner. A gel is applied to the skin and then a wand is used to emit pulses of light onto the skin area being treated. This method is said to be less painful than laser therapy, and more effective, resulting in less total treatment sessions. The bad news is that it also carries a heftier price tag – one clinic offering a price of $10 per pulse. Depending on how many pulses per session your tattoo requires, this could add up to a significant amount of money.

Medical Methods

There are some other medical methods of tattoo removal so painful and ineffective that laser removal replaced them as soon as it became available. These include dermabrasion, which would actually “sand” away the top layer of skin through abrasive friction. Another method is excision, where the tattoo would be cut away and the skin sewn back together. These methods have been proved to cause much damage to the skin and result in severe scarring, and are only used today in extreme cases where laser surgery is not an option.

Cover-up – An Alternative to Removal

tattoos cover up

tattoos cover up

If you have a tattoo you just don’t like, there is an alternative to having it removed – and it’s much less painful and a lot less expensive. It’s called a cover-up, and that’s exactly what it is. A cover-up is simply having an old tattoo covered up with a new tattoo. Many tattoo artists are becoming quite skilled in doing cover-up jobs, and can help you come up with a design that you will be much happier to live with. The price is usually just the price of a regular tattoo, and when done correctly your old tattoo will be completely invisible, reduced to a memory.

Once a tattoo has been covered up, it’s very difficult – if not nearly impossible – to cover it up again if it’s not done right.

We can see the above methos for tattoo removal are more or less dangerous and time and money wasted. Therefore, it is not a good ides to have tattoo removed from ur body. Once you had tattoo, you need to take care of it or think over and over before you have your favorate tattoo designs .

Hip hop tattoos lead to a big part of today’s screaming tattoo craze that is spreading among teenagers and youngsters of the hip hop addicts. The main reason why Hip hop tattoo becomes the world top fashion craze trend is that these tattoos are sported by many famous celebrities in the pop music industry. Youngsters copy the tattoos made on the body of their favorite rappers and hip hop artists. Some wear these tattoos just for the sake of fashion, whereas others have a specific meaning related to their tattoos.

However, in the past time when the Rock & Roll occupied the whole world music field, hip hop was not appreciated by tattoo craze .Some people claim tattoos are being marketed primarily to a white Rock & Roll generation. Hip hop and R&B artists – from 50 Cent to Eminem – have donned elaborate, detailed and beautiful tattoos even though tattoos are primarily associated with rock and bikers.

Then later, more and more contemporary musicians from heavy metal bands to hip hop artists and R&B artists have all gotten in on the act ; more and more people are getting tattoos simply because they idolize certain rappers or R&B artists. Once there is an famous tattoo artist said, “people want tattoos because they see them on rappers and R&B artists and figure it will look as good on them”.

While famous tattoos on Hollywood starlets are undeniably hot, we suspect there may be more meaning on the tattooed rappers strutting down the same streets. Check out the top ten most important tattoos in rap music.

50 Cent


50’s back tattoo is clear evidence of the over-the-top opinion he has of himself. He has his moniker tattooed the size of a Jansport backpack covering his entire back. This tattoo design appropriately fits a guy who just wants to get rich or die tryin’.

Lil Wayne

Eminem
30 years from now, no other rapper’s lyrics will be studied more than the words put forth by Marshall Mathers. His words terrified the masses, and his exit from the game has left most fans and critics puzzled and yearning for more material. The reason for his absence can be seen on his right shoulder. There, you can find a picture of his beautiful little girl, Hayley Jade outlined with roses.

Eve
One of the things that Eve is best known for outside of her music is for the set of paw print tattoos placed unconventionally, and prominently, on both breasts.

Tattooing is becoming as much a part of hip-hop culture which is in turn slowly becoming part of mainstream culture and the MTV generation. Definitely, it will lead to the demise of negative stereotypes associated with both tattoos and hip hop culture.

3D Tattoos-World top eye-popping tattoos

June 2, 2010

So what it is the 3D tattoos:

The basic idea of a 3D tattoo is to slightly lift a tattoo up about two millimeters. One huge advantage of 3D, or 3-dimensional, tattoos over regular tattoo designs is the production of a more vivid and real image, primarily caused by adding depth into the design. Depth is mainly accomplished by putting in the right amount of shadow techniques to the design to make it look like it is really occupying a specific amount of space on a certain area. The product is a tattoo that greatly depicts a very realistic image or setting.

The amazing aspect about these tattoos is it seems any parts of your body can be raised, very unimaginable, right? It doesn’t matter whether it’s your cheeks, your arms or your left shoulder, it can be done if you like.

If you are a tattoo addict and you’ve grown tired of simple and traditional tattoo designs, you might want to consider getting the cool 3D (three-dimensional) tattoo.

As for a Tenderfoot who frowns at the ubiquity of popular tattoo designs and symbols, getting a 3D ink would prove to be an exciting first step into the world of tattoos.
Anyways, peeps be prepared to be stunned as now you are presented 20 mind blowing and eye jerking 3D tattoo pictures. It will be like watching Avatar, in fact if you have 3D glasses, just put them on as it will make this hub look better.

Shortcut for tattoo addict—Diversified Tattoo Styles

May 27, 2010

Persuing beauty ( no mater internal or external beauty) is our nature existing in everyone’s deep mind. People have always striven to change one’s appearance no matter what will they pay for that , And for millions of people throughout time, tattooing has been one of the most popular forms of permanent body art.

Tattooing ,acted as an art form,has been popular and welcomed in the whole world for so many years .Different religion and region has their differential tattoo art culture and styles.

When you get a tattoo or you decide to finally get one  (cos process of tattoo removal is very long and painful) , hopefully you want one that will represent something other than a cute little bunny or a thorny red rose. If you do decide that you want something with a deeper meaning such as an Army, or a warrior tattoo you might get down to thinking as to what else is available to you out there.

Not surprising – you have a ton of choices available to you. Not only can you depict an entire story, history, meaning or culture on your body with a tattoo but you also can choose from the below-mentioned styles of tats.

After doing some research on the thousands of different tattoo styles, there are more than enough choices available out there! The symbolism and encroachment of tattoos varies in different places and cultures. Tattoos may show how a person feels about a relative (commonly it is mother vs father or daughter vs son) or about an unconnected individual.

In the period of early contact between the Mori and Europeans, Mori chiefs often drew their moko (facial tattoo) on documents in place of a signature. Whatever your reason may be – if it’s a ethnic thing you may be interested in checking out the following options available to you:

 Firstly it is the Family coat of Arms.

 Family Coat of Arms – Irish family crest

 Getting a coat of arms tattoo or a family crest – isn’t something you should take lightly. Many tattoos are designed with different symbols and images and most people that get these styles of tattoos, get them because of a deeper reasoning. You should be aware that there may be more than one family crest for the same name. For example, the Irish name O’Connor has dozens.

Many non-Gaelic names were brought into the country especially during the seventeenth century. At that time it was very much a disadvantage to have a Gaelic or Irish-sounding name so many of the native names were ‘anglicized’ into a similar sounding Anglo or Scottish name.

Secondly, it is Mexican Tattoos.

Aztec & Mexican Tattoos

 Mexican tattoos are some of the most striking new patterns around. They take their themes from those of ancient Mayan, Inca and Aztec art, a very distinctive look that’s different from most other types of tattoo designs, yet instantly recognizable. The bold, geometric patterns of Mexican tattoos make them very well suited to tattoo art.

Then next comes the Celtic Tattoo.

 Celtic  tattoo

 Celtic tattoos and body art (as well as other tribal tattoos) have been very popular for the past decade or so. Put it down to the graceful, timeless beauty of these designs which seem to lend themselves particularly well to tattoo art. Think of Celtic knots, crosses or spirals – or, more often than not, an intricate combination of several of these elements, which are often seen as black armband tattoos or as a sleeve tattoo.

Tribal tattoos– native American tattoo

The tribal styles we see today originate from various old tribes like those from Borneo, the Haida, the Native Americans, the Celtic tribes, the Maori and other Polynesian tribes. The shapes and motifs of these tribal tattoos are deeply rooted in the tribe’s mythology and view of the world.

The traditional tattoo artist aims to reflect the social and religious values of the tribe in his tattoo designs. Recurring themes are the rituals of the tribe, the ancestors, the origins of the world and the relationship with the gods.

Hawaiian Tattoos

Hawaiian tattoos and body art have a history of thousands of years and experience a renewed popularity since the 90s, together with other tribal tattoo styles. Aloha! There’s more to Hawaii than flowers and leis, after all – the Hawaiian islands are a part of a larger chain, the Polynesian Islands, which include other island cultures such as the Maori and the Samoan, tribal communities with a rich tattoo tradition.

Egyptian tattoos

 Like many other tattoo designs from mythology or ancient cultures, are growing in popularity. It’s all a part of the modern conception of tattoos – no longer limited to gang members, sailors or members of an underworld subculture, tattoos are going mainstream. They are tasteful, socially acceptable, and a great way of exploring and utilizing art imagery from all over the world. Egyptian tattoos are beautiful and striking images from the ancient past.

 So now, after appreciating these various tattoo styles and their amazing culture , which one do you think you prefer so much or which is your own style?

Tattoos culture (a must for your body art)

May 27, 2010

With an increased tolerance and popularity of tattoos in modern society , more and more liberal research on the topics of tattoos come up ; however, little research has ever been done on the existence and structure of tattoo culture in modern society.

How many of you know how much about the tattoo culture , are you in or out? If you are in, then how much do you know the difference between body piercing and tattooing? How many world famous religious or regional tattoo culture do you know ?

 Distinguish Tattooing and Body Piercing

 Tattooing ,as an body art form , has been claimed over the years by many countries, tribal and ethnic groups. In many cases it is the same scenario of what came first the chicken or the egg. We will probably never really know who were the first people to mark their skins.

But we do know, and indeed that there is much evidence proves this ancient and totally unique practice has been carried out since the beginning of time . Therefore , the Body Decoration is nothing new to modern people.

A tattoo, or dermal pigmentation, is a mark made by inserting pigment into the skin for decorative or other reasons. Tattoos on humans are a type of decorative body modification, while tattoos on animals are most commonly used for identification or branding.

Persuing beauty  ( no mater internal or external beauty)  is our nature existing in our deep mind. People have always striven to change one’s appearance no matter what will they pay for that , And for millions of people throughout time, tattooing has been one of the most popular forms of permanent body art.

Fans are obsessed with celebrity tattoos. What do they say? What do they mean? Sometimes its obvious… Sometimes we just don’t know. This kind of tattoo is over the top crazy. Lil Wayne’s “fear God” eye lid tattoo is a good explanation for why he is almost never seen on camera without a pair of sunglasses.

Body piercing usually refers to the piercing of a part of the human body for the purpose of wearing jewelry in the opening created.

Body piercing is a form of body modification. The word “piercing” can refer to the act or practice of body piercing, or to a specific pierced opening in the body. Some people practice piercing for religious or other cultural reasons, while many individuals, particularly in the modern West, choose to be pierced for spiritual, ornamental, or sexual reasons.

So what exactly does a piercing mean today?

Today, it can literally means anything. Some people view it as a form of self-expression. Others do it for symbolic reasons like overcoming a personal hardship.

Someone else might have body piercings because they feel it’s aesthetically pleasing. The reasons really depend on the individual, but one thing is certain. Body piercings are now mainstream and they’re here to stay.

In a word, no matter what kind of art, they are parts of our life art. You can appreciate it or hate it.. no matter what, you cant stop their blooming steps, just like a newly-born baby ,you cant stop their growing up life…
