Lou Eyrich’s new Tattoo mania

Posted by Disha Singh on September 13, 2011

Cheers Lou!

On the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, Glee award-winning costume designer, Lou Eyrich showed off “a somewhat different style” a lovely head tattoo.

People might be renouncing her latest hair-do sorry I guess I should say tattoo-do of Lou Eyrich 😉 But I am 100% loving it.

No greys, No Hair-fall just artistically managed hair etched on your head.


It’s not the first time that she has played with her hairstyle. But this time I would like to say that she is looking great in this extra ordinary tattoo. And I would not like forget to appreciate the efforts of the great man behind all these pseudo hair.

Tattoo Alert:

New research has turned up troubling findings about toxic chemicals in tattoo inks, including carcinogens and hormone disruptors.

Inks, which are injected into the skin with small needles, have caused allergic rashes, chronic skin reactions, infection and inflammation from sun exposure, said Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C. A study published in July suggested that phthalates and other chemicals may be responsible for some of those problems.

That raises questions about more serious, long-term risks such as skin cancer, says scientists to SFGate.com (Read More…)

Hi-Tech Tattoo to test Type 1 diabetes

Posted by Disha Singh on June 3, 2010

Several pricks into your finger to track your blood sugar level can be little painful but more a hassle. You might sometime wish for a machine which could be attached to your body and immediately detects your glucose level. Chemical engineers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are working on carbon nanotubes that could be injected under the skin to reveal blood glucose levels.
Paul Barone and Prof. Michael Strano are working on a new type of blood glucose monitor that could not only eliminate the need for finger pricks but also offer more accurate readings.

Strano and Barone’s sensing system consists of a “tattoo” that’s designed to detect glucose, the nanotubes are wrapped in a polymer that is sensitive to glucose concentrations. A wearable device roughly the size of a wristwatch shines infrared light through the skin and onto the nanotubes, which fluoresce when in contact with glucose, thus displaying the patient’s glucose level.

The researchers plan to create an “ink” of these nanoparticles suspended in a saline solution that could be injected under the skin like a tattoo. The “tattoo” would last for a specified length of time, probably six months, before needing to be refreshed.

Claims are high and it seems pretty useful for those suffering from type 1 diabetes but is it possible to re-etch a tattoo on the same place where first tattoo is done? Or new skin area will be required, if this happens then one fine day you’ll have to switch back to contemporary blood sugar testing device. I think best is to eat healthy and exercise well to keep yourself away from these tattoos. Be more living and etch some real colorful tattoos 😉

Under Training Foot Tattoo- Not Bad!

Posted by Disha Singh on February 25, 2009

Wow! a Graphic & Web Designer, turns to be a tattooist. Todd Dumas thinking to do something different has starting practicing tattooing on himself and here is one of his efforts.

The first tattoo by him on himself is very different which was he made just to create it. He says,

“I am attempting to teach myself the art of tattooing. Right now, I am just doing some “freestyle” experiments with lines, colors and shading. As I get farther along (and more skilled), this will turn into a neo-tribal, abstract piece. This represents about 5 different 20-minute sessions.
This tattoo is damn embarrassing in its current state. The lines are shaky and the shading is terrible.”

However, he agrees to the fact that most new tattoo artists practice on themselves, and mistakes are expected. Though most new tattoo artists have spent a great deal of time in tattoo shops. He thinks that a lot can be learned from just being in the environment and getting work done. Before this, he only had a tiny, black piece that he got over ten years ago.

Thus, I make more mistakes than most would. But each session gets a bit better, and my lines are getting cleaner. Hopefully, I can salvage the design before I have to ink my entire foot black , he added.

Søren’s tattoo was hand poked using traditional tools of a type used in the Scandinavian Bronze Age. The design is also inspired by petroglyphs and rock art from the same age. The warrior is meant to move and fight as Søren does… protecting his back.

Kindergarten Tattoo

Posted by Disha Singh on November 29, 2008

When we say ‘Kindergarten’ – rhymes, cute playground, scribble drawings with butterflies, ladybirds, flower, cloud, stars, and many other naughty things strike our mind.

When I saw this tattoo by Sonja of Amazon Tattoo the first word which knocked my mind was “Kindergarten”, so I named it the “Kindergarten Tattoo”.
