Olympians Are Proud Of Their Tattoos

Since the summer Olympics are going on right now in Beijing I thought it would be appropriate to write about tattoos and the Olympics. Also Ive just started getting into the Olympics and I have noticed a little pattern myself. You might be scratching your head at this point because you are not sure what tattoos and the Olympics have in common. Well the truth be told that a lot of Olympians actually have their tattoo location planned out a head of time, to ensure that their tattoo will be shown off to the world.

For instance a lot of Olympians will get tattoos of the Olympic rings tattooed somewhere on their body that will be seen and noticed depending on the sport they are competing in. Take Wrestlers for instance, they have been known to put Olympic ring tattoos or some other tattoo on the inside of their arms. The reason behind this is so, when the arm is lifted following a victory, it can be seen. Swimmers on the other hand like to get tattoos on their backs so they can be seen when they are in the water. Or take the archery competitors, they have thought this one out even more so than the others. They will get tattoos on the outside of their right arm. The reason behind this is when the archers are in shooting position, the camera catches the tattoos perfectly.

 Another pattern that I have noticed while watching the Olympics is whenever an Olympian has a tattoo and it is noticeable the announcers. They will talk about the tattoo and share the story behind it and what it means to that particular athlete. So it just goes to show that these athletes are not only proud of the sport they are competing in but they are proud of their tattoos as well. Find various topic on Google Plus, Facebook Fanspage and Twitter.

Tattoo Charity

When you think of charities you probably don't even think about tattoos in the same sentence. Well I was pleasantly surprised yesterday to find out that this one tattoo parlor in Phoenix was holding a A 15-hour long fundraiser for Phoenix Children's Hospital. A 30 minute session with one of the tattoo artists from Living Canvas Tattoos cost only $15! You honesty can not beat that price when an average 30 minute session would probably start at around $60 and up depending on the tattoo artist.

 This charity event was a birthday celebration for the tattoo studio. They were celebrating 15 years of services so they thought 15 years with $15 tattoos for 15 hours would be a great event. The owner of the tattoo studio said, -There are so many charities, how do you go wrong with kids?-. Which I think is fantastic. It just goes to show that even tough man covered in tattoos that probably lead not so normal life style still have a huge heart for children and charities. The Owner Mark Walters, knew this event would more than likely be a huge hit and expected the rough bikers dudes to show as well as the average soccer mom because the money was going to such a good cause. However, Mark did state that any tattoo design will be accepted as long as it fell into the 30 minute session if not the $15 would not apply.

 I truly think this whole concept is wonderful. I wish more tattoo studios would do things like this. It benefits not only tattoo enthusiasts but it also goes to a great cause! So listen up tattoo studio owners think real hard about following in Living Canvas Tattoos footsteps. The satisfaction of doing something great for someone else far out ways any dollar amount you could earn from given a tattoo. Find various topic on Google Plus, Facebook Fanspage and Twitter.

Types of Tatoo Removal For Those Considering Tatoo Removal

Once upon a time tattoos were reserved for bikers and motorcycle owners who wanted to show their allegiance to one gang in particular. Now it appears as though every college coed from New York City to Los Angeles is sporting a tattoo. While it seems like a good idea now, in five years or ten years it might not seem like such a good idea. For those people tattoo removal might just become a reality. There are a number of ways in which tattoo removal works.

There are some ideas that have been around for years, while others are just beginning to gain prominence. Each of the tattoo removal options will be painful, and some claim that it is just as painful as getting the tattoo itself. This is because the tattoo reaches down into several layers of skin, and each of these layers must be removed. The different procedures must reach into each layer of skin to fully remove the tattoo. The first type of tattoo removal involves the use of lasers. Laser tattoo removal is the most popular form available today. It has been around since the 1980's, but its popularity has only grown in recent years.

There are even offices that exist only to use this type of laser technology. With this type of tattoo removal, a low level laser is pointed directly at the skin. The pulsating laser then slowly sloughs off the tattoo until it disappears completely. This may take several sessions spread out over several weeks or even months. If the tattoo is larger it may take even more time for the process to work. Another type of tattoo removal is dermabraison. Many people know this procedure as a cosmetic procedure that takes away layers of dead skin to make the skin look younger and more healthy. As a form of tattoo removal, it works in much the same way. A numbing salve or cream is applied directly to the skin in the location of the tattoo.

A small machine that looks similar to a small sanding belt is then rubbed against the skin. This slowly breaks up the ink of the tattoo and sands off the layers of skin where the tattoo was. In some cases the doctor may freeze the skin first before doing this tattoo removal procedure. One of the more extreme forms of tattoo removal is known as excision. With this procedure the tattoo is literally cut off the skin. The skin is then sewn back in place and allowed to heal. This only works with very small tattoos, and in people with very elastic skin. Tattoo removal can easily be found by looking in the phone book or online. The cost of such procedures depends on the colors used in the tattoo, the size of the tattoo, and sometimes the location of the tattoo. The person who handles the removal process can offer more information as well as an exact cost of the procedure.

The Different Styles Of Bull Tattoo

Bull tattoos are symbolic of masculinity as far as the Samoans are concerned. Samoa's rich history and cultural diversity has ensured that the art of tattooing, first introduced more than two thousand years ago in Samoa, has burgeoned into a global movement! Tatau, the Samoan word for tattoo, portrays correctness and workmanlike traits. These two traits have led to the concept of tattoos being masculine, and bull tattoos, more so! Apart of its rich cultural magnificence, why should one give attention to the various vagaries of the Samoans? And what do they have to do with the concept of bull tattoos?

 Did you know that one of the most famous wrestlers of our times, Dwayne Johnson alias The Rock, is a Samoan who can trace his ancestry back to the Polynesian island of Samoa? The Rock has single-handedly raised awareness of the bull tattoo, with his impressively built body sporting the Rock Brahma Bull Tattoo. Any questions about his masculinity? The bull tattoo is an image of a wild bull head with wild and stabbing red eyes, etched in ink on his right arm.

 The Bull, being the symbol of the sun sign Taurus, thus holds a double meaning for The Rock, who is also a Taurus. Also, the Brahma bull is said to be the elite in bulls, weighting in at approximately one ton, and one of the most ferocious bulls ever. Thus, The Rock's Brahma bull tattoo symbolizes his drive to be the best in the world of Wrestling! Whilst the bull tattoo on the upper right arm of The Rock portrays his strength, dominating nature and affinity for danger and violence, his upper left arm "puamana" tattoo shows the other, more reserved side of him; the gentle side that shows his love for his family and background.

 One of the biggest factors that makes Dwayne Johnson stand out from the rest of the crowd is The Rock Brahma Bull Tattoo, which shows his diligence, ambition and power to be the best that he can be. This is seen in his acting as well as his extreme devotion to be not only physically powerful, but also psychologically in tune with his roots and family.

 So if you're looking to prove your power and your masculinity, go ahead and get The Rock Brahma Tattoo! If you're looking for something that's not quite as big and impressive but conveys the same meaning, explore the different tattoo designs on our site. You'll definitely find one of your choice, and it may just be a bull tattoo!
