Tattoos, Self-Mutilation & Its Aftermath
#21
What did they do to remove the age spots Ronald? I use apple cider vinegar to remove warts and other growths that keep coming back on my face, due to sun exposure and age. I've safely removed about five over time, and need to remove a few more that just keep popping up over time.

He used the laser at a lower power setting to remove them.

Gottcha.  Oh, I had forgotten to link to the article, but did a few minutes ago.  I'm somewhat surprised that a pretty girl would go to such extremes as she did.  That picture of her at the top is obviously an earlier shot, because it doesn't show all the other tattoos on her arms that she had done later.  Wow!

About a year ago I saw a really attractive, well-groomed, woman who had hundreds of tattoos below her neck. The artwork was beautiful and no colored ink was used. Unfortunately, several decades from now the combination of aging and sun damage will cause them all to look like crap. Tattoo artists also remove tattoos, but dermatologists have modern equipment and prefer the slower, safer approach using a lower power setting.

Yeah, that fellow removing hers is also covered all over with them as well.   S13

All the methods of tattoo removal I have heard of involved removing the top layer of skin carrying the tattoo pigment, and causing it to be replaced by new skin. Of course, all of them take time.

This thread made me laugh, especially page 1. Thanks guys for such a narrow minded view of things you don't understand.
FYI - every sailor I know can tell you what every tattoo he has means and why they are located where they are on the body.

Granted tattoos and other body modifications are not for everyone, but just think about all those "respectable" people you know in suits and fancy clothes, high profile jobs etc and wonder if they are hiding something under their clothes. You'd be surprised at how many "normal" people are sporting body art. Not all tattoos are ugly. Not all are done for the wrong reasons and not all people who have them are mentally unstable.

Well, there is one advantage having them.  It makes forensic identification much easier.  S22

When I was in the navy my dentures had my number on them to make it easier to identify me should I get blown to smithereens.

Only if you're already a criminal and have had them photographed during one of your bookings.

Hockey is a rough sport, they only started doing it in the 1980's.

I never played the sport before, but I know it can be brutal on the head. My greatest folly was ranger school. S6

Incidentally, I've forgotten just why I did this, but growing up in Alaska, I learned to skate on hockey skates. Almost all the other kids used regular figure skates, but I just had to be different. If nothing else, I sure developed stronger ankles from the onset. S5

You would never catch a male Canadian kid wearing figure skates, we all wore hockey skates.

Oh, we had quite a few who wore figure skates.  But mostly officer's kids, because it tended to make them appear a cut above the rest of us in the "Gray" quarters(NCO) at Fort Rich.   Spiteful

We had outdoor rinks, I started skating when I was four, between age 6 and 12 I was on the ice every day. After age 13 I was only on the ice for practices and hockey games.

In Michigan, wearing figure skates did not make a guy "a cut above". To look rich, one had to have the same brand of skates that Gordie Howe wore (without socks.) One of my friends was an Olympic Roller Skater (from that one Olympics when that sport was included.) He and his sister skated on wood - not on ice, wearing figure skates would have made him a Sissie there. They went outside of Olympic Village one night and he single-handedly beat up an entire gang who wanted to take his sister. (He was a 6'-2" Black-Belt) No one would ever call him a Sissie. ...But no figure ice-skates.

I never once saw a male wearing figure skates, we only wore hockey skates and the proper way is without socks.
The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones.

I wonder how much longer the tattoo craze is going to continue to grow? Well, its entering a new phase.

Blink and you won't miss it: Face tattoos go mainstream

As an anthropologist, I know that humans have been using tattoos to represent membership and 'rite of passage' among primitive societies. And that continued to be carried on, especially within the military, so as to show others that they passed certain initiations. But widespread tattooing is going to cause a great deal of angst once these young folks finally grow up, and realize that they are marking themselves out for many forms of rejection, once the .

The tattoo removal business is growing and will only increase as time passes.
