Most Popular Tattoo to Remove

According to recent laser tattoo removal studies, the butterfly tattoo is the most popular tattoo to remove.

Surprisingly the butterfly tattoo takes the lead as the most popular tattoo to remove. The butterfly tattoo is the most common tattoo for a woman, and many women seek a tattoo of this creature to represent their exciting spirit. The subjects are easy for a tattoo artist to catch, perhaps not so easy for a laser technician to remove.

Yesterday I wrote about Leicester, England native John Bourner, who in a bid to win a free trip to the Canary Islands, had the logo of Flick’s Bar tattooed to his ass cheek.  Without repeating that post (look below if you want to read it), I’ll just cut to the chase and tell you that things didn’t work out, Bourner missed the deadline and I proceeded to mock him for having a crap tattoo on his ass cheek for the rest of his life.  Well, I condemned the man too soon because the folks at Flick’s Bar were so impressed with Bourner’s dedication that they actually decided to pay for his trip to the Canary Islands even though he missed the contest deadline.

‘Bar owner John Brophy said: “More than 200 people entered the competition but I think it’s safe to say that James went above and beyond the call of duty. It’s absolutely unbelievable what he has done. We felt terrible when we realised that he was too late so have decided to give him a holiday anyway, paid out of our pockets.”‘

Pretty cool.  I mean, the tattoo is permanent anyway that you slice it and the trip won’t be, but I guess for James Bourner it’s all worth it.

In other tattoo news this week, it’s not often that you hear about someone being hospitalised after a tattoo becomes infected.  It’s even more rare when that someone who is hospitalised for a tattoo infection happens to be a politician.

Jon Gnarr is a comedian turned politican, turned mayor of Reykjavik, Iceland.  He was hospitalised this week after the tattoo of Reykjavik’s coat of arms – which is on his arm – became infected.  He had just returned from a trip to Stockholm, Sweden.  Tough luck, but very cool to see a politician commemorate his love for his city with a tattoo.

Painful Tattoo Removal

A video posted of a girl who got her tattoo removal by incisions.

People often complain that tattoo removal with lasers is painful, but it’s better to have a faded tattoo with some scabbing than the huge scars this girl had from incisions. Looks like she may have to do a laser treatment to remove the scars anyway.

Ah the world of bad idea tattoos, it keeps growing day by day just as sure as the world keeps right on spinning.  It’s odd how many people out there who don’t really seem to have any problem getting a really stupid or bad tattoo as a lark or just to try and win some stupid contest.  Yet if these people didn’t exist, I guess I wouldn’t have them to write about during times such as these.

This latest entry into the bad tattoo hall of fame also comes with a pretty decent sized chunk of bad luck.  That’s too bad, but somehow I think that bad luck and bad tattoos just go hand in hand and so in that way it’s all quite fitting.  Anyway, while on vacation on the Canary Islands, 24-year-old Leicester, England resident James Bourner found out about a contest being held by  Flicks Bar in Fuerteventura.  The contest was for an “unusual and fun” photo competition.  The flight back home to England must have given Bourner some time to hatch his brilliant plan and so, upon arriving back in England he set a plan in motion to get the logo for Flicks Bar tattooed on his ass.  It took some time to get everything going, but eventually Bourner got his tattoo.

‘The tattoo was not supposed to be as big as it is. I had a problem reducing the image, and in the end had to go ahead with this one that covers my entire bum cheek.’

That was far from the biggest problem that Bourner would encounter on that day, however.  He finished receiving the tattoo a mere two hours before the deadline, rushed home and began trying to upload the photo to the bar’s website.  Wouldn’t you know it, his computer was going really slow.  Damn computers.  By the time Bourner got the photo uploaded, he had missed the contest deadline by ten minutes.  Now he has a giant tattoo of a bar no one has heard of on his ass for the rest of his life.

Dude, next time just get a tattoo artist to draw it on with some pens and markers.  That way you can get rid of it afterwards.  Just a suggestion.

Despite the fact that they are almost the complete opposite of what most people find appealing about tattoos, prison tattoos have always managed to retain their very own particular aesthetic and importance.  Sure, no one’s really in any sort of particular hurry to get one (unless of course, you happen to be doing time), but they’re interesting to look at and once you start to peel the layers back and look for meaning in the work, there’s often a history to be found.

An upcoming exhibition in London, England is ready to take aim at a project that was begun some sixty-two years ago.  After his father was denounced as an enemy of the people by the Russian state, Danzig Baldaev grew up in a children’s home.  Once he was old enough to work, he was forced to take a job as a warden at Leningrad prison in 1948.  Here he began something of a curious hobby – documenting the tattoos of the Russian prisoners.  He was able to do this for some time before the Russian authorities discovered what was going on, but surprisingly enough, they allowed Baldaev to continue on with his work.

‘”They realised the value of being able to establish the facts about a convict or criminal: his date and place of birth, the crimes he had committed, the camps where he had served time, and even his psychological profile,” Baldaev wrote, shortly before his death in 2005.’

What Baldaev discovered through his work was the vast world of Russian prison tattoos and the meanings behind them.  For one thing, tattoos were illegal in Russian prisons, but that certainly didn’t stop the prisoners from adorning themselves with a variety of imagery.  Ink was made by melting down the heel of a boot and mixing this with blood and urine.

Skulls denoted a criminal authority. A cat represented a thief. On a woman, a tattoo of a penis was the kitemark of a prostitute. Crosses on knuckles denoted the number of times the wearer had been to prison, and a shoulder insignia marked solitary confinement, while a swastika represented not a fondness for fascism but a refusal to accept the rules of prison society.

A criminal with no tattoos was devoid of status, but to have a tattoo when you hadn’t earned it – bearing the skull sign of a criminal authority, for example – often resulted in the tattoo being forcibly removed with a scalpel by fellow prisoners. And “grins” (depicting communist leaders in obscene or comical positions) were a way for criminal to put two fingers up at the authorities.’

Life was harsh in these environments and the tattoos seemed to give the inmates a purpose, a method by which to showcase the lives they had lead and the people that they were.  The exhibition runs at 4 Wilkes Street, from 29 October – 29 November, Thursday to Sunday, 11am-6pm in London, England.  If you live in these parts or just happen to be visiting, I think stopping by would be well worth the time.  For the rest of us who aren’t anywhere near London, Fuel Design – the people who are putting on the exhibition – have put out three different volumes of Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedias.  For a taste of some of the gnarly photos in the encyclopaedias and at the exhibition, follow this link.  If you’re interested in buying a copy of the RCTE, try going here.

Tattoo Regret: Remove Ink With Laser Tattoo Removal

That tattoo may have been a good idea at the time, but the truth is we all change. Laser Tattoo Removal helps fade and even eliminate which was once thought of as permanent ink.

The most common tattoo regret is the “drunk tattoo” and then followed by then “name tattoo.” Another common reason for tattoo regret would be an obnoxious and visible tattoo that cannot be covered with clothing. With laser tattoo removal patients can eliminate former mistakes or fractured relationships in just a few treatments. Laser tattoo removal is immediately thought of as expensive, but at NLI Med Spa patients can afford the most effective treatment out there for tattoo removal.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Those removing a tattoo want to strip off bad memories and start new by having spotless skin.

Tattoos used to be permanent, but now with advanced laser technology a tattoo can be permanently removed in just a few treatments.

Possessing the best laser machines out there, NLI Med Spa can provide the best laser tattoo removal in Tempe.  Tattoo removal is made up of wavelengths, which are absorbed and passed through the skin. The rapid absorption of light causes the ink of the tattoo to destruct. Tattoo removal can be painful, but NLI Med Spa is trained to make the process as comfortable and effective as possible.

After laser tattoo removal in Tempe the area should be kept clean but not scrubbed. Skin will feel slightly sunburned for a few days after treatment and scrubbing will irritate the skin. The treated area will form a scab and will continually fade.

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
