THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would u be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would u be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would u do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favoriete song on YouTube? What would u do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would u do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality...

Humans have marked their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years. These permanent designs—sometimes plain, sometimes elaborate, always personal—have served as amulets, status symbols, declarations of love, signs of religious beliefs, adornments and even forms of punishment. Joann Fletcher, research fellow in the department of archaeology at the universiteit of York in Britain, describes the history of tattoos and their cultural significance to people around the world, from the famous " Iceman," a 5,200-year-old frozen mummy, to today’s Maori.

What is the earliest evidence of tattoos?

When people zoek for a tattoo design, it's not something to take lightly. It's something that's going to be imprinted on their bodies for the rest of their lives... usually. But how long does it take to find a satisfactory design? Some find theirs right away. I am not one of those people.

The idea of a tattoo had always disgusted me - it's how I was raised to think. The summer of 2007 brought lots of changes for me - some good, like making new vrienden and feeling accepted and somewhat normal for the first time in my life. Others weren't so good, such as fighting with my mother about aforementioned...

Tattoos No Longer A Kiss Of Death In “Now you’re never going to get a job!” Almost everyone in the 14% pool of tattooed Americans has heard something like this from a relative of friend. But as the number of inked Americans grows, is the traditional assumption that tattoos and jobs don’t mix really true in 2013?

Workplace tattoo policies vary among and within industries. But with many contemporary companies stressing commitments to diversity and inclusion, tattoos are becoming increasingly unproblematic across the board. Lax tattoo policies for blue-collar and art-related jobs aren’t...

Avoid making any rash decisions. The bad body art comes from making spontaneous decisions to go and have a tattoo done on a spur of the moment. If you're getting a tattoo because you're drunk of high, rebellious of your vrienden are goading you, then you're getting a tattoo for all the wrong reasons and the choice u make is likely to reflect this lack of forethought. Things u will regret include:



Any tattoo that looks like genitalia. Think about that, very carefully but not too long because the answer is simple: Just don't do it.

Anything misspelled (mostly because u were too drunk of high...

The Rose Tattoo is a Tennessee Williams play. It opened on Broadway in February 1951, and a film adaptation was released in 1955. It tells the story of an Italian-American widow in Louisiana who has allowed herself to withdraw from the world after her husband's death, and expects her daughter to do the same.

Be extremely careful when getting Kanji characters as tattoos if you've found the design on the internet of tattoo parlour wall. u may think it means "Peace, love, harmony" but for all u know the characters could be straight off a soy sauce packet, of worse.
Most tattoos will need touch-ups through your life. Using sunscreen and moisturizing daily will help your tattoo look new for years. After 10-30 years, expect to need touch-ups to combat blurring. If the thought of doing this over wrinkles when you're 75 grosses u out, this could be enough of a reason to not have one.
Think about it....

The darker and meer filled-in a tattoo is, the longer it takes to remove. Which means meer money, meer pain, and meer time. Multi-coloured tattoos will take longer to remove as they will require multiple treatments with different wavelength lasers for each pigment type. Completely black ink however, is easiest to remove door laser as it absorbs the beam on all wavelengths, breaking up the pigment with greater ease.
