Some Facts about tattoos and piercings

The practice of decorating your skin is nothing new. Piercings and tattoos date as far back as five thousand years, when different cultures used both for traditional or ritual purposes.
While body piercings and tattoos may be a creative way to express individuality, they don’t come without health risks.

Keep in mind that getting either a piercing or tattoo is a form of altering your body, which can mean trouble, even when they are done safely. This is because the body’s ultimate protective barrier – the skin – is being punctured.

Infection and certain skin reactions can occur, some more serious than others.

Here are some specific health risks of tattoos and piercings that must be taken into consideration before getting one done:

1. Allergic reactions are common.
Tattoo dyes can cause an itchy rash, particularly red dye, even years after the initial work. With body piercings, just like in the ears, jewelry that is made of nickel or brass can also cause allergic reactions.
2. Infections are especially common with body piercings.
Signs that you have a piercing infection include swelling, redness, warmth and discharge. While naval piercings may look cute, especially on a toned tummy, they can take the longest to heal.

3. Skin disorders can occur.
Skin disorders from tattoos include keloids, raised skin with excessive scarring, and bumps called granulomas, both caused by the tattoo ink.

4. Unsterilized needles can spread disease.
The most serious risk is blood-borne diseases like hepatitis, tetanus and HIV/AIDS.

These life-threatening infections can be transmitted from needles that have not been changed or sterilized, and are contaminated with another person’s blood who is infected.
5. Oral complications may also arise from tongue or lip piercings.
The jewelry not only causes oral infections, but also cracked teeth and gum damage, which can lead to gum disease.
When contemplating a piercing or tattoo, most people usually don’t think that consequences may be life-threatening.

Not only can piercings and tattoos pose serious physical risks, but you may regret your decision later. That groovy peace sign tattoo on your back may have been hip in the 60s, but it might be far from representing who you are today.

Remember: Tattoos are permanent.

While lasers and dermabrasions can help in removing a tattoo, both can be expensive, painful, lead to scarring, and aren’t 100% guaranteed.
The decision to mark your body should not be taken lightly, and shouldn’t be a spur of the moment decision. Do your research!
If you do decide that piercing or tattooing your body is right for you, follow these few tips when choosing an establishment to help avoid potential health risks or tattoos and piercings:

1. Make sure the professional uses an autoclave, a heat sterilization machine that is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. All non-disposable equipment is sterilized by the machine.

While lasers and dermabrasions can help in removing a tattoo, both can be expensive, painful, lead to scarring, and aren’t 100% guaranteed.
The decision to mark your body should not be taken lightly, and shouldn’t be a spur of the moment decision. Do your research!
2. All equipment that can’t be sterilized by an autoclave should be disinfected with a commercial disinfectant or bleach solution.
3. All equipment should be removed from sealed packages by a freshly gloved professional. This includes the needle, tubes, pigments, trays and containers.

4. Stay away from a piercing gun. They can’t be sterilized by an autoclave and can cause excessive trauma to the area.
5. The professional must wash his or her hands directly before the procedure and must always wear a pair of fresh latex gloves.
6. If you don’t feel comfortable with the artist, leave. He or she shouldn’t hesitate to answer any questions or concerns you may have. You should trust the person who may be marking you permanently. Make sure the professional is certified.

Just as important as doing your research is taking care of the piercing or tattoo at home.
Your artist should provide you with oral and written directions on how to properly care for your new artwork.

For oral piercings, use an antibacterial, alcohol-free mouthwash each time after eating and refrain from smooching your significant other for a few weeks.

For other body piercings, clean the area with a gentle soap and water solution twice a day.
After washing, twist the jewelry back and forth to ensure the cleanser gets underneath the piercing.
For tattoos, remember to clean the area with antibacterial soap and use a moisturizer.
Avoid exposing the tattoo to the sun and chlorinated pools for the first few weeks.

With all of this information to remember and consider, don’t forget to carefully consider your choice of piercing or design and the place that you will be happy with it in five, 10 or 50 years from now.
This may be the most difficult decision you face. Will it be the piercing in your nose or the butterfly on your back?
Whatever you may choose, be safe and be sure.

Հերթական դաջվածքի սրահը, այս անգամ եկեղեցում…

Հերթական դաջվածքի սրահը, այս անգամ եկեղեցում...

Միչիգանցի քահանա Սթիվ Բենթլին իր եկեղեցում դաջվածքի սրահ է բացել, գրում է “The Flint Journal”-ը: Այս կերպ նա հույս ունի եկեղեցի բերել այն մարդկանց, ովքեր իրենց լավ չեն զգում ավանդական եկեղեցական միջավայրում:

Քահանայի կարծիքով` դաջվածքներն անվնաս են բարոյականության տեսանկյունից: Պարտադիր չէ դրանք կապել թմրանյութեր օգտագործելու հետ: Ինքը` քահանան, ունի 2 դաջվածք, որոնցից մեկն արվել է եկեղեցու սրահում:

Եկեղեցու մշտական հաճախորդների թիվը հասնում է հազարի, իսկ հանգստյան օրերի պատարագներին գրեթե 500 մարդ է այցելում:

Բենթլիի խոսքով` դաջվածքի սրահը շատ մարդկանց է գրավում, սակայն այնտեղի բոլոր հաճախորդները չեն մտնում եկեղեցի: Բացի սրահից, քահանան նաեւ ոչ ավանդական այլ միջոցների համար է օգտագործում եկեղեցին: Օրինակ` թույլ է տալիս այնտեղ անցկացնել մարտեր առանց կանոնների, ինչպես նաեւ օգտագործել եկեղեցին որպես մեքենաների վերանորոգման վայր:(Սկզբնաղբյուր`Henaran.am

Tattoo

A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. The first written reference to the word, “tattoo” (or Samoan “Tatau”) appears in the journal of Joseph Banks, the naturalist aboard Captain Cook‘s ship the HMS Endeavour: “I shall now mention the way they mark themselves indelibly, each of them is so marked by their humor or disposition”

Tattooing has been practiced for centuries in many cultures spread throughout the world. The Ainu, an indigenous people of Japan, traditionally had facial tattoos. Today, one can find Berbers of Tamazgha (North Africa), Māori of New Zealand, Hausa people of Northern Nigeria, Arabic people in East-Turkey and Atayal of Taiwan with facial tattoos. Tattooing was widespread among Polynesians and among certain tribal groups in Taiwan, Philippines, Borneo, Mentawai Islands, Africa, North America, South America, Mesoamerica, Europe, Japan, Cambodia, New Zealand and Micronesia. Indeed, the island of Great Britain takes its name from tattooing, with Britons translating as ‘people of the designs’ and the Picts, who originally inhabited the northern part of Britain, which literally means ‘the painted people’. British people remain the most tattooed in Europe.Despite some taboos surrounding tattooing, the art continues to be popular in many parts of the world. follow the link to read the continuation…
