Who feels like the bigger idiot when this happens, the girl that got the ink or the artist that did the work?
Ladies, are you a soccer-mom now and worried that Tinkerbell tramp stamp you got in college is going to cramp your style? Or guys are you a former meathead that miraculously managed to get some brain cells to start functioning and you realized that the awful tribal armband you got has to go? Well don’t fret, Alec Falkenham, a PhD from Canada may one day have the answer for you.
The current procedure for getting unwanted or embarrassing tattoos removed is to undergo expensive laser treatment that hurts way more then getting that tattoo put on ever did. Falkenham however is currently working on a new method, a “cream” that could wipe away the bad memories.
Via Dalhousie University’s Dal News:
Falkenham has come up with a different approach, one that makes use of the natural healing process that your skin activates after it’s tattooed in the first place.
When you get a tattoo, the pigment from the ink deposits into the skin where it’s then consumed by white blood cells named “macrophages.”
“Macrophages are known as the big eaters of the immune system,” says Falkenham. “They eat foreign material, like tattoo pigment, to protect the surrounding tissue.”
In the case of tattoos, two populations of macrophages react to the ink in different ways. One set of macrophages transports some of the pigment to the draining lymph nodes, removing it from the area. The other population that has “eaten” the pigment goes deeper into your skin, becomes inactive and forms the visible tattoo. Over time, the macrophages that formed the tattoo are replaced by new macrophages, which cause the tattoo to blur and fade.
Falkenham’s technology, Bisphosphonate Liposomal Tattoo Removal (BLTR), targets the macrophages that contain the pigment for removal.
“BLTR is a cream that you put on your skin,” he explains, describing how BLTR makes use of a lipid-vesicle, or liposome, that his team has created.
“When new macrophages come to remove the liposome from cells that once contained pigment, they also take the pigment with them to the lymph nodes, resulting in a fading tattoo,” says Falkenham. Read More…
There is no word yet when the tattoo removal cream will be approved for use and available to buy. Falkenham claims that it will be much safer then the current laser procedure, but is not yet sure how many applications of the cream will be needed to completely fade away your poor decisions.
Full disclosure, I used to have a crappy tribal armband tattoo, that has long since been covered up by a large half-sleeve dragon design.
22-year old “artist,” Illma Gore (no relation to Al Gore, but just as crazy), has launched a Kickstarter campaign where for 10 bucks a pop she will tattoo your name or a phrase of your choosing on her body.
Via The NY Daily News:
The formerly homeless artist is the 22-year-old daughter of a once-wealthy land developer in Australia who lost everything before he died, according to KTLA.
She estimates she needs about $6,000 to cover her skin from neck to toes — barring a few spaces already inked.
As of Tuesday morning, she’d raised more than $690 from nearly two dozen backers.
“I want to be a singular tattoo for my latest art exhibition, and I want it to be your names,” she said on her fund-raising page.
“There is something absurd and beautiful about having an accumulation of absolute stranger’s names draped over my pale goth skin, even if half of them are ‘Penis Butt,'” she said. Read More…
Now, I have tattoos myself, I plan on getting more tattoos, so I do understand that it is a tad bit hypocritical of me to say this, but, this chick is fucking insane.
There is no doubt in my mind that if these two shared enough brain cells between the two of them to even know how to vote, that they would both be Obama voters.
On Tuesday, December 30th, John Arwood, 31, and his girlfriend Amber Campbell, 25, were “rescued” from inside a closet at Daytona State College, which was closed for the holiday break. I used the quotation marks around the word rescued, because when police arrived, answering the 911 call of John Arwood, which was placed after being in said closet for two days, they found that the closet was not in fact locked. The dumb ass Obama voters could have “escaped” any time they wanted.
Oh yeah, the room also smelled like meth and feces. The latter of the two was found in the closet, police actually did not find any drugs.
Via The NY Daily News:
When asked what they were doing inside the closet, the couple reportedly told police that they were hiding after being chased on campus by unknown suspects.
Jailhouse records show that this was Campbell’s second booking in Volusia County following charges in 2013 for aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer with a firearm, escape, resisting an officer with violence, and giving a false name upon being arrested.
It was Arwood’s fourth time, however, following multiple arrests for driving with a suspended license among other charges. Read More…
The pair were both arrested for trespassing.
Definitely an Obama voter…
Apparently it must have been take your daughter to work day.
Via The UK Daily Mail:
A mother-of-four who took her eight-month-old baby with her as she acted as getaway driver in an armed robbery has been jailed.
Tanya Miller, 30, had the baby girl with her in a car seat as she drove from her home in
Carlisle to the Cumbrian town of Silloth for the knifepoint raid at a branch of the Cumberland Building Society.
A judge described this as one of the ‘most troubling’ aspects of the case as Miller appeared in court to answer for her role in the hold-up, which left a member of staff ‘absolutely traumatised’.
Carlisle Crown Court heard that Miller, of Harraby, was the ‘wheels’ in the raid while her boyfriend Barry Doswell, 26, also of Harraby, was ‘back-up’.
The pair were due to stand trial for robbery on Wednesday but both pleaded guilty before their trial got underway.
Yesterday Miller and Doswell were both sentenced to six years in jail for robbery. Read More…
46-year-old Victor Thompson first became internet famous back in 2008 just before the lead up to Super Bowl XLII where the New York Giants stunned the undefeated New England Patriots.
Thompson, formerly of Laconia, New Hampshire, a huge Patriots fan got tattooed a replica (not very good quality) of a his favorite team’s helmet permanently etched into his skull a week before the Super Bowl loss.
His 15 minutes of fame weren’t up just yet, as in July of 2008 he was back in the news, having had launched a website where he planned to collect $200.00 and in return he would grant the purchaser one square inch on his body to have whatever they wanted tattooed on him.
“I’m getting paid to do what I like to do best,” said Victor Thompson, who is charging $200 per square inch of tattooed advertisement. “It’s a one-time fee and it’s a lifetime advertisement.”
Now 6 years later it seems that Thompson’s fifteen minutes of fame is still not over as he’s back in the news for a drug arrest.
Last September 10th, in St. Petersburg, Florida, where he recently moved to, police arrested Thompson for possession of Spice, the synthetic marijuana. Thompson told cops that he did not know that the synthetic ganja was illegal in Florida, claiming that it was “still legal in New Hampshire,” his home state.
Thompson was charged with felony drug possession and trespassing, a misdemeanor. He is being held in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $1500 bond.
I don’t think this is quite the way she wanted to achieve that goal…
I have tattoos, I plan on collecting more tattoos in the future, so it would be somewhat hypocritical of me to denigrate anyone who practices body modification. That being said whenever you hear about someone with the numbers 666 inked into their forehead and implanted demon-like horns alongside them, it usually is not the part of a feel-good story.
Take for example, Roy Gutfinski Jr, who legally changed his name to Caius Domitius Veiovis in 2008 and was found guilty yesterday of triple murder and dismemberment.
Via The New York Daily News:
A Massachusetts jury has convicted Caius Veiovis of murdering three men in Berkshire County and dumping their chopped-up bodies, according to local reports.
“I’ll see you all in hell! Every f—ing one of you! I’ll see you all in hell!” Veiovis told the jury.
The multiple-tattoed man with horn-like projections embedded in his head was found guilty by jurors who spent four full days and an additional two hours deliberating the macabre case.
He will be sentenced on Monday. The charges carry a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment.
Veiovis, with Adam Lee Hall and David Chalue, kidnapped and murdered David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell, then dismembered their bodies and dumped them on private property. Read More…
Oh by the way, he was on Social Security Disability since shortly after being released from prison at the age of 18.
Originally from Maine, Gutfinski, a month after he turned 19, was committed to the state’s psychiatric hospital after assaulting his girlfriend and threatening her boss with an ax.
Later, in August 1999, he in an apartment in Augusta, he and his 17-year-old girlfriend took a razor and sliced a 16-year-old girl in the small of her back. The wound required 32 stitches to close.
Gutfinski and his girlfriend then licked the blood and kissed. He told police he was a vampire, but one who was without fangs and able to go about in daylight.
After his conviction in 2000 of the vampire incident is when Gutfinski began altering his appearance, with the horn-like implants in his forehead, filing his teeth, reshaping his earlobes and acquiring the ink.
A real winner.
So a rookie defensive player for the St. Louis Rams has an interesting story, and no I’m not talking about Michael Sam. It’s the guy who may be the reason that Sam got cut.
In 2011 while playing football at Sacramento City Junior College, new Rams defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks was working at a Toys ‘R’ Us. He hated his job, hated his life at the time and quit deciding that he never wanted to work a “normal job” ever again.
What did he do to drive up the motivation to achieve that goal you ask? He decided to go all Mike Tyson and get some ink permanently emblazoned across his face.
“I was just like I might as well go ahead and get it on the face because if nothing else, it will help motivate me to either be a guy that has a tattoo on his face looking for another job or hopefully I make it in the NFL and don’t have to work too hard to do something (else),” Westbrooks said. “I don’t feel it’s a bad thing now. I don’t regret it. It speaks for itself.” Read More…
Westbrooks went on to play at West Texas A&M and then signed with the St. Louis Rams in May as a free agent after not being selected in the 2014 NFL collegiate draft. His time in training camp impressed the coaching staff so much that he made the teams 53 man roster on cut down day ahead of the much more hyped 7th round pick Michael Sam.
This makes a tramp stamp look like a classy choice.
Dedicated Miley Cyrus Fan Sick twisted fuck, Carl McCoid, 40, of England has covered himself with Miley Cyrus tattoos. McCoid’s ink obsession with the former Hannah Montana star began in 2009, when the singer was just 17. Of course the douchebag denies that there is anything creepy about that. He also claims that his Miley Cyrus body art addiction had nothing to do with the end of his marriage.
