Tattoos are beautiful but at some places they raise proverbial eyebrows and the first thought that strikes your mind is the laser tattoo removal. Hold on, that’s not the ultimate solution of this issue, as at some other place the same tattoos would look very cool, so, opt for something which displays your tattoos according to your comfort and choice – Tattoo Cover-up cosmetics!

Yes, with the help of cosmetic products you can neatly cover your tattoos and be confidently comfortable to visit any place. Moreover, you’ll save a big amount and pain, which you’ll undergo during the laser tattoo removal. This is not a new phenomenon and there are numerous such products flowing in the market.

You can use these cosmetic products to cover as well as change the design of your tattoo. Now, you might be scratching your head…how can a tattoo design be changed? Simply, you can cover a portion of your tattoo thus, resulting to a new tattoo design as shown in the image below.
Changed Tattoo Design with Make-up

As mentioned above there are many tattoo cover-up cosmetics available in the market but here are my top 5 picks: Joe Blasco’s Tattoo Cover, Judith August’s Killer Cover, NeoStrata’s CoverBlend, CoverMark and DermaBlend.

However, some tattoo cover-ups in market are not water-resistant, as a result they won’t give you a satisfactory swathe therefore, it is recommended to use a waterproof tattoo cover cosmetics for better effect.

Tattoo by Guy Aitchison

TLC has a new show called Tattoo Wars. It has been on for four weeks, though you would not know it because they are doing zero advertising and promotion for it.

Here’s the show’s description:

“Tattoo Wars pits the best tattoo artists of our time against each other in a head to head creation competition. In each episode we explore the world, legend and work of two internationally acclaimed tattooists. Then we travel to a huge tattoo expo where our stars, in three hours time, ink a tattoo on the skin of two willing clients. These creations have a common theme, such as a dragon, a calla lily, a sailor, a tribal gauntlet, or a hanya (Japanese devil mask) but are rendered in the unique style of each artist. As the show closes, thousands of show attendees vote for the creation they like the best and the winning artist takes home the Tattoo Wars trophy.”

The participating artists are (so far):

Mike Rubendall vs. Bugs (1st week)
Leo Zuluetta vs. Rory Keating (2nd week)
Oct 25, 8:00 pm- Nikko Hurtado vs. Steve Morris (3rd week)
Nov 01, 8:00 pm- Guy Aitchison vs. Aaron Cain (4th week)
Nov 08, 8:00 pm- Deano Cook vs. Tom Renshaw (This week!)
Nov 15, 8:00 pm- Seth Ciferri vs. Michelle Myles

On November 1st, it was a great war between two legendary tattooists – Guy Aitchison and Aaron Cain both sat down to ink the sleeves of a man in organic and wildly imaginative design.

It is better late then never, so this time don’t forget to watch the Tattoo Wars. Mark the date and timings in your calendar so that now you don’t miss the last two tattoo wars.

Somehow, there is less viewer ship than expected therefore, Aitchinson’s official website (hyperspacestudios.com) requests public to flood the inbox of TLC in order to tell the authorities that they like such tattoo wars.

Simply, mail at http://extweb.discovery.com/viewerrelations and raise your voice. I’ve made my contribution and have posted the issue here also to increase few more mails to pressurize them to air more body art programs with your support.

I know it’s wrong to call navel piercing as females’ favorite only, because even males are poking their abdomen but, it is far more general among women than men. Body piercing is not a new phenomenon that has taken over today’s youth but it has been practiced since ancient times.

However, to talk about navel piercing – the fact is that the true navel is not pierced as for that the person being poked should have an “outy” navel to some degree, which is very rare. Therefore, in most cases the navel piercing is through the upper rim of the navel. Piercing actual navel carries high risk – lest infection in the piercing, it can travel inward to the liver or peritoneum.

Moreover, navel piercing can be a hassle for pregnant ladies because it becomes uncomfortable at the very end of pregnancy, as their abdomens get stiffly stretched causing a pulling sensation. In most cases their practitioner suggests the removal of navel piercing jewelry.

Navel piercing carries same pain like earlobe or nostril piercing but afterwards it would make you feel like a pregnant lady for few days because you’ll have to wear loose-fitted clothing, you won’t be able to bend over well and will have to sit with your rears pushed forward whether you lean on a chair. It is advisable to wear titanium, stainless steel or niobium jewelry in early day of piercing, as these metals promote less infection and gold is not recommended for a fresh piercing because it does not mesh with maximum’s body chemistry.

Remember, always go to a licensed or a well-experienced piercer for your piercing and schedule an appointment when your calendar is clear from all stretchy or strenuous physical activities like dance parties, yoga classes or any sports. During the procedure of navel piercing be focused on your breath and please-please do not try this at home because by doing this you can risk your life like Janaee Smith, a sophomore at Southside High, Greenville of South Carolina, who got her navel pierced from her friend thus, resulting in loss of life.

About and over six months is the time span taken by a navel piercing to be fully healed, the time duration may increase according to a person.

After getting your belly-button pierced by well-apprenticed piercer – the next step is to maintain a strict aftercare regime.

Finally, here is another option to avoid so many dos and donts–wear a fake belly button jewels and be cool. 😆
