    One of their clients was Jennifer Tucker, 36, who wanted to have a Confederate flag tattoo on her ankle covered. Inked when she was 18 years old, Tucker said she was just following the crowd at her high school and wanted to rebel against her family. --- After high school, Tucker transformed her beliefs and found herself involved in local activism, particularly related to racial injustice. She did not hesitate to call when she found out about what the Gallery X Art Collective was doing in Murray, about a 40-minute drive southeast of where she lives in Paducah. “I just...

    FACIAL tattoos were once only seen on the most die-hard inkers. But in recent months celebrities like Chris Brown and Justin Bieber have helped the popularity of facial artwork soar. Singer Brown went under the needle in January, getting a Nike Air Jordan shoe tattooed on his cheek. A month later, model and actress Amber Rose revealed on her Instagram she'd had the names of her two sons, Bash and Slash, inked on her forehead. Since then more stars have posted pictures of their facial tattoos. Cindy Crawford's son Presley has "misunderstood" inked under his eye, while actress Amanda Bynes...

    What some who don’t live in Georgia may not realize is that Gov. Brian Kemp’s original shelter-in-place order was not a total lockdown. Undeterred by his critics, Georgia Gov.

According to an order Kemp promulgated Monday, nail salons, massage therapists, tattoo parlors, bowling alleys, gyms, and other businesses may reopen on Friday. In-person church services can reopen. On Monday, restaurants and movie theaters may reopen. Dentists’ and doctors’ offices and all other health care-related practices and services...

    Watch them, Friends! Listen. Watch your Democrat lawmakers speak again and again of the moments that mean the most to them: taking their oaths. Holding with reverence their prized Bibles. Daddy's Bible. Grandpa's Bible. The symbols of a deep Catholic faith, for instance: Nancy Pelosi's faith. Watch them speak of the love they have for their LORD, of their religions and precious communities. Their love of Truth, Justice. Listen to them speak of America's foundation: the Lord. The Bible. Faith, righteousnessness, and honesty. This is a solemn time, they say. A prayerful time. Watch these pious men and women bow...

    Former NBA star objected to additions (Newser) – Larry Bird was surprised to see his tattoos in a mural painted on the side of a building in Indianapolis. The spider web tattoo on his left shoulder, the dagger on his right cheek, "Hoosier" on his neck—and more—don't exist on the real Larry Bird. So the retired NBA great's lawyer struck a deal with the street artist, Jules Muck, the Indianapolis Star reports. The tattoos are gone now, except for the "Indiana" on an arm and the street artist's "Muck Rock" signature, which was moved from inside a heart on Bird's...

David St. Pierre said Thursday. The drug seized during that traffic stop, which resulted in one arrest, was fentanyl, St. Pierre said. On Feb. 8, Meserve found dead in his Webster Street home from an accidental fentanyl overdose. Meserve worked...
  • Color-changing tattoos may help diabetes patients monitor their levels

    The use of color-changing dye can potentially detect changes in each of the three biomarkers — glucose, albumin, or pH — in the body’s interstitial fluid, which transports oxygen and glucose between cells. The albumin sensor is a yellow dye that turns green in the presence of albumin, the changing concentration of glucose causes the sensor’s pigment to go from yellow to dark green, and the pH sensors ranges from yellow to blue at normal levels, researchers said. So far, the tattoos have only been tested on pig skin and are not ready for human use, according to the researchers....

    This is a serious question, but I can't get a serious answer. Where can I get a temporary tattoo ? One that lasts as long as I like, be it a day or the rest of my life. It goes like this. One steps into a tattoo parlor. You get the tattoo, and the tattoo parlor gives you a dissolving solution when you leave to be used whenever you like, or not. I cannot believe this has not been invented.

The clique's members are accused...

    Recently, European scientists bombarded tattooed corpses with X-rays from a particle accelerator. While it could have been a scene for an upcoming goth body horror movie, it was actually a study meant to benefit living humans with tattoos. This grisly experiment helped European nanoparticle researchers understand how tattoo ink travels in human bodies over time. In a study published in the journal Scientific Reports on Tuesday, a team of French and German researchers reports that nanoparticles found in some tattoo inks can migrate away from the skin — and accumulate in lymph nodes.

    ... The most obvious way that cannabis fuels violence in psychotic people is through its tendency to cause paranoia. Even marijuana advocates acknowledge that the drug can cause paranoia; the risk is so obvious that users joke about it, and dispensaries advertise certain strains as less likely to do so. But for people with psychotic disorders, paranoia can fuel extreme violence. A 2007 paper in the Medical Journal of Australia looked at 88 defendants who had committed homicide during psychotic episodes. It found that most of the killers believed they were in danger from the victim, and almost two-thirds reported...
