This creepy tarantula tattoo will scare off arachnophobes out there

Posted by Disha Singh on January 29, 2015
Creepy Tarantula Tattoo

Spider is an intriguing predator known for weaving complex webs and immense patience while awaiting their prey. Many people across the globe get their bodies inked with spider tattoos for its symbolic meaning for creativity, patience and wisdom. Likewise, the tarantula tattoo on leg also symbolizes the same.

Although, it is the creepiest tattoo to scare of any arachnophobe, but clearly shows the wearer’s love towards eight-legged invertebrates. Tattoo artist Tamas Dikac from Hungary has inked this incredible tattoo design on the person’s leg. I am really amazed by this realistic tattoo design that seems as if the creepy crawler is waiting patiently to attack its prey any moment.

I wonder how the person’s friends who are scared of spiders react after seeing this unusual creature on his leg. Moreover, the beautiful detailing of the tattoo represents the artist’s fine talent to bring life into his unusual skin art. Spare a thought about this eerie tattoo design.

Is it a handle or an illusionary tattoo design on arm?

Is it a handle or an illusionary tattoo design on arm?

Well, don’t be confused this one is an astonishing tattoo design that seems like you could grab the swirling handle-like pattern on the customer- Paddy Buckley’s arm. It is an interesting tattoo design that certainly makes viewers take a second look due to its unusual optical illusion.

This impressive skin art is inked by tattoo artist Paul O’Rourke from Allstar Ink in Limerick, Ireland. The tattoo is so intriguing that it has become an Internet hit and many online visitors are praising this unusual creation. According to O’Rourke, the tattoo design was quite challenging but fun at the same time.

I totally loved the twisted pattern of this delusional tattoo; but wonder how the client deals with people wanting to poke his arm to clear their visionary doubts?

Tattoo Aftercare

Posted by Disha Singh on October 31, 2012

Getting a tattoo is no joke. It takes a lot of preparation to be able to choose a tattoo design, and an even harder preparation period to finally go through with the whole tattooing process.
However, your responsibility and work does not end there. In order to make the best out of your tattoo, you need to know how to be able to take proper care of it. A lot of things can still go wrong with your tattoo. An infection could follow, especially if you do not take good care of it. Here are a few helpful hints on how you can take care of your tattoo.

 

1) Remove the wrap.

Once you are done with getting your tattoo, make sure that you remove the protective wrap that the artist has placed over your tattoo. It is advisable that you remove the protective wrap from an hour or two up to 12 hours of being wrapped in order to avoid any infection that may be caused by prolonged wrapping.

2) Wash your tattoo.

Some people do not wash their tattoo for fear of it coming off. This is not a good idea since you constantly need to keep your tattoo and the area around it clean in order to avoid any infection. Wash your tattoo with soap and water, and rinse briefly. Do not hold your tattoo under running water. Just make sure that you clean the tattoo enough to remove whatever ointments or dirt that may be on your tattoo.

3) Avoid the sun.

Do not expose your tattoo to the sun too much. Too much exposure can cause your tattoo to itch a lot, and can cause your tattoo’s color to change or fade. Whenever possible, try to avoid the sun, and keep your tattoo in the shade until it has fully healed.

4) Do not wear constrictive clothing over tattoo.

Wearing clothing that constricts over your tattoo tends to irritate your tattoo, causing it to itch and increases its tendency to become infected. Make sure that you allow your tattoo to breathe even if you are wearing clothes that will cover them.

5) Leave it alone.

Never scratch or pick your tattoo, especially while it is healing. You may damage the quality of the tattoo. Just allow your tattoo to heal, and don’t attempt to do anything to it while it is healing, aside from putting ointment on it.

6) Avoid soaking your tattoo.

Soaking your tattoo in swimming pools, bathtubs, and hot tubs should be avoided as well, since soaking your still healing tattoo will change its quality and color.

Be sure that you take care of your tattoo as it is healing. If something should go wrong with your tattoo, you will be forced to live with it since tattoos are permanent.

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…)

Profession Revelation Tattoo

Posted by Disha Singh on March 15, 2011

It’s true; tattoos are to reveal your mind onto your skin. No matter what is in your mind you can shape it onto your skin in form of a tattoo. We’ve seen people converting their face into a skull by sketching one onto their face in order to show what’s under that skin.

If someone has to flaunt their profession they can etch a symbol of it onto their skin canvas like this cutlery tattoo of a Chef by Shanghai Kate (http://www.shanghaikates.com/). A keyboard key for a geek, a pen for a writer, a brush for a painter, a mike for a RJ, blah blah….! The list will go on and on.


Anyways, after this great tattoo now it’s a time for tip of the day:

In order to increase the life and newness of your tattoo place it on that part of the body which is less exposed to the sun. Sun is the biggest enemy of your skin and tattoo.

Say no to rings with tattoos on fingers

Posted by Disha Singh on June 11, 2010

Yeah man, when I came across this tattoo my mind straight away said ‘why not have a tattoo and say no to those rings on our fingers!’ Rings sometimes irritate us, isn’t it? Sometimes they get entangled with your hair when trying to make a hairstyle or your clothes. Getting a tattoo etched on your finger is a better option no hassles and no burden.

Imagine the best part on your engagement, you don’t exchange wedding rings but sit in front of the tattooist to permanently engrave your better halves name, symbols or something which marks the big day. Interesting!
This tattoo won’t let your partner flirt with anyone else as rings can be removed but tattoos cannot. 🙂
If you have to show your big money then you can opt for expensive tattoo ink like colored or LED.

Tattoo Tip: Before get a tattoo, make sure that your tattooist always dips the needle in a small cap of pigment (squeezed from big bottle) before tattooing you. If the artist dips the needle into the big bottle, you may very well be sharing fluids with those who have had tattoos from that same big bottle, which can be risky.

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 😉
