Romantic Tattoo For David Beckham This Marriage Anniversary

David Beckham is known to lavishly spend on his marriage anniversaries to make the day really special for Victoria. In one such event he flew her to place unknown in a private jet filled with rose petals. This year to celebrate their 14th wedding anniversary, he is again planning to do something special and wants this anniversary to be the best so far. He is planning to get a tattoo dedicated to his wife. Did you know that David already has an impressive collection of tattoos on his body?

The couple together has four children – 3 sons and a daughter who is the youngest. However, they are not thinking of ruling out the possibility of adding more to their family.

Even though both Victoria and David is a busy couple with their own businesses to look after, they make time for each other. Wherever they go together, they try to enjoy as many romantic dates as possible. Recently they visited China where Victoria had to promote her new fashion line. This was one of those rare trips where their children didn’t accompany them, and so they had plenty of dates and romantic dinners.

PAMA in Brampton Wants to Hear Your Tattoo Stories

The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives or PAMA in this suburban city has come up with a new initiative for all the tattoo enthusiasts. If you have got tattoos, then they want to hear from you. They want to hear your story behind the tattoo you have got – whether you have inked it as a dedication to someone or it is a mistake or just an exhibition of your personality, tell them. The entries are open from July 2 – September 13. Tattoo enthusiasts in and around the Peel community are eligible for entering this contest. They have to submit a photo of their tattoo and write a story about it.

If you have something interesting, the submission can get featured in the next photography exhibition by PAMA. In case you don’t know how to capture your tattoo beautifully, you can take advantage of the special tent set up for the tattoo enthusiasts during 14th annual Classic Cars and Legendary Stars event on July 19 – 20. Here you can get your tattoo photographed professionally and submit your story at the same time.

At PAMA, they want to chart out the evolution of the body art from an expression of rebellion to the expression of your personality.


New Technology To Remove Tattoos

Removing tattoos was a painful process and it took almost two years before it got removed entirely. But now, with new technology, this process has been reduced to few months only.

According to Dr. Amy Derick, Dermatologist, “If you think of the tattoo pigment like a rock, basically the laser comes in and shakes the rock.” Earlier the pigment was broken into “pebbles” and the immune system would take care of washing these away. Now this new technology shakes the pigment so much that it breaks into “sand” and the immune system finds it easier to remove the pigment. It was Dr. Derik who first introduced this technique called PicoSure in Chicago. Just like the old technology, this helps in breaking the pigment by delivering a sharp ray of energy, but with a powerful punch.

The energy is given for a small period of time, but it is so strong that the pigment used for tattoo, blasts. However, you should be aware that this quick treatment doesn’t come without some pain. You get a burning sensation when laser hits the tattoo.

People who would benefit from this technology are the ones who have got bored of their old tattoos and want new ones, or those whose office rules don’t allow body art.
