Glossary to Inking

1. Ink: Usage of metallic ink to organic makes the removal a tougher process. Organic ink could also fade off with time and is easier to drop.

2. Professional vs Amateur: Professionals are trained to handle the depth of the needle. An Amateurs inking would pose to be a problem during the removal process, since the depth the needle could have pierced deeper.

3. Colours: Single or monochromes hues are easy to erase.

The Process to Correction

a. Surgical removal: show almost instant results. This method is done by carving layers of skin to the fat tissue. This is done in the chest region. The procedure would leave a linear cut scar. This procedure is usually not advised. The costs vary between eight thousand to ten thousand rupees.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation.

b. Grafting: Skin is harvested from another part of the body, usually the inner area of the thigh or areas where the donor area scar is inconspicuous and grafted to the area of the tattoo (after removing the tattoo). This method would usually leave a dark patch in the area of the grafting. The costs would vary between fifteen to twenty thousand rupees.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation.

c. Melanocyte transfer: Is an alternative to grafting. The superficial skin in the area of inking is abraded and small skin graft is taken from behind the ear, through melanocytes. The cells giving colour to the skin is extracted from the skin and sprayed to the abraded area. The results are finer to grafting. This method would cost rupees twenty thousand a convening.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation

d. LASER: Is the most used method, requires a least of six conveying’s spreading over six months, yet depending on the scale, depth and colour used the tenure of treatment could range to twenty-four months. The Q Switched ND- YAG Laser widely is used. The PICO sureis the most advanced LASER now. PICO sure is more expensive than the Q Switched ND-YAG. The Q switched ND-YAG costs usually vary from two thousand to five thousand rupees a sitting.

*the cost would vary again on the hospital, city you live at, the year and economic fluctuation.

e. Fractional resurfacing Co2 LASER: Usually the last process. This method is to remove a ghost image (an outline of the inking that still is faintly visible), Even if it’s the final process the doctor could decide to do a resurfacing in-between depending on his scheme of deletion.

Know your Machines

Results are varied subject to the machinery used for the process.
Compromising on the cost of the apparatuses could mean poor quality output.

Apparatuses manufactured in the United States of America and France work cream, equated to the machines manufactured in China and Korea.

PICO sure is a fresh intervention to the cosmetology clinics in India. Owing to the muscle of the expenditure the machine is obtained at. Clinics tend to stick with Q-switched. The result of the PICO sure machine would be improved nevertheless would reflect on how burrowed your pocket can get.

Doctor Vs Posing Doctors

A doctor’s expertise plays an important role in the removal. The LASER settings and dosage is a major factor. An unsupervised machine or inexperienced person could burn the skin beyond revival.

Food of Thought

Dr. Vikram articulates, cosmetology is not only for the affluent, needless over-charging at several clinics make believe it is an affluent affair.

“The plans of the diligent one make for advantage, but everyone that is hasty heads for want. –(Proverbs)

TATTOOS: The Perception

Egyptian mummies to iced icemen have been excavated with ink needled into their body, the art goes a long time. Tattoos denoted ranks and demanded respect

The piece of art could reinforce perception into negative stereotyping. Well, not all criminals have tattoos for identification. We don’t say tattooed people should receive preferential treatment or benefits. However, employers who provide flexibility and freedom to allow inked staff, provides higher hiring options, higher retention rates, and better public relations. The outcome would unfold into higher profits and margins.

Recent polls still show that being inked is one of the strongest factors effecting recruitment. People with tattoos reconsider jobs, if the corporate policies are too rigid. Recruitment takes a brunt finding qualified, experienced, skilled and employable talent if their policies are too rigid.

If corporate policies indicate covering up the ink that could symbolize a family member, memory or values that hold intrinsic meaning, it would hurt the strength of the company. If companies value the individuality and character of their employees, the employees in return value the character and culture of the company.

Let’s get real, people do not change their shopping habits even if the staff are inked.

Then why get INKED:

1. Self expression
2. Style statement
3. Spiritual believes
4. Cover up of surgical scar tissue, birth marks and pigmentation
5. Representing a name or memory

Protocols of a Professional Tattoo Artist:
1. The client should not be under the influence of intoxication
2. Unless an adult family member subscribes to the inking, the artist would not work with an individual under the age of 18. Also the tattoo would shift positions of the tattoo and also resize due to the changing body.
3. The clients are advised on the inks, length and colour to be used on them.
4. A check on allergies is done, usually a test pack is induced into the inner side of the arm and checked for reactions.
5. Names of other individuals are usually advised below the neck area and fore arms. Then it is user discretion.

So the long and short of it, tattoos are highly individualistic and the write up should help you decide your untrodden/trodden road into inking yourself.

Movember! What’s the deal? Lets educate ourselves

Movember! the word is a blend of the Moustache “mo”, and “November”.

This is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November, to raise awareness of various cancers and depression in men. Funds are collected then donated to support, research and treat the ailment. The goal of “Movember” is to “change the face” of men’s health.

Most good sparks spill over at an offhand meet and this too coincidentally started at a pub.

The movement started in Australia in 1999 with a group who termed themselves “Movember”. They sported mustaches through out November to be identified and attached to the cause.

30 days in November and 30 people it started with.

The word caught on and events were organized to raise funds for the cause, later fashion identified with it. People participated for the best upper lip mane, a winner was chosen and crowned. The winner is then known as the face of the movement for that entire year.

The wave of the cause has reached other shores. It was no longer country specific, but a cause to help men-kind.

One may not be linked to the foundation but one sure has known cancer and depression at least through loved ones.

That mane above the lip was a chauvinistic statement of manhood in yester cinema. Though the lines sound quiet clichéd, but only the man can have one. So MAN UP. There could be awareness and events in your city. Take part, wear your best wears, take home the prizes, socialise, meet new people. It would be fun and your fun could just translate into another’s recovery.

Sport one this November, it could be thin, it could be handle bar, it could also be a beard. Let that beard or moustache remind one that you stood ground for a cause. Ace Infiniti says let’s deprive the world of CANCER, and let us start NOW!
