ice packs for injuries

Ice and Post Tattoo Removal Care – Friend or Foe? – The Latest Research

We have all grown up with the idea of using ice packs for injuries – after we sprain an ankle or strain a muscle to help reduce swelling as well as for post athletic recovery; in fact, we have been doing this for 40 years now. Over time, with advances in both technology and medicine, according to the latest research, ice packs should only be used for pain and for no longer than 10 minutes. Why? It seems that the application of ice for longer than 10 minutes impedes tissue repair, and this would also apply to use as an aftercare treatment post tattoo removal. Read more

Important Vitamins to Assist Healing, Ageing and Skin Health

The skin, the largest organ in the body is important as a defence mechanism and its health is a function of our immune system which includes what we put in our bodies. From ageing, acne, skin conditions such as eczema and even cosmetic procedures such as tattoo removal, abrasive and ablative skin care treatments, and the condition of the skin including its protective barrier is very important. What can complicate maintaining healthy skin is that the formation of vitamins and any reaction in the body requires certain complex biochemical processes.

tattoo addiction

The Science Behind Tattoo Addiction- Is it a Reality or Fallacy?

Many people who have tattoos would generally agree that once they had one, it was hard to stop. With the rapid increase in popularity of tattoos over the last two decades, the number of tattoo parlours has grown as well as their repeat visitors. Statistics tell us that 1 in 4 people in Australia have tattoos, but are tattoos addictive?

Humans have been tattooing their skin for thousands of years. Otzi, a 5000 year old European mummy was found to have over 50 tattoo markings over his body. A tattoo can be cultural, a remembrance, a constant reminder of a thought process, a prayer, religious, or simply a work of art. The reasons behind a tattoo can be very personal, spiritual, tribal, decorative or whimsical.
