Temporary Tattoos—Way to Look Apart in Crowd. A temporary tattoo is an image drawn or painted on the skin similar to a genuine tattoo but it is not permanent. They are drawn or painted on the skin for one’s self-satisfaction or advertising. They have become very popular even among teenagers since they are cheap and can be easily washed off. Some temporary tattoos are used as a ritual say like in the Muslim community. Especially during wedding ceremonies you find the bride with henna tattoos in almost all parts of the body. This thus becomes something that is a part of them and to them it has become a lifestyle. Tattoo making is like a fashion these days. So, with the change in fashion the techniques of making a tattoo is also changing and becoming better and better. In the past they were just made for kids and would peel of after contact with water. Today the kind of temporary tattoos available have been made uniquely. They are long lasting, beautiful and easy to use. Even the method used to place the image on the skin is different. The tattoo is left on the skin for a period of up to 4 days after which it is removed. At this time the image has been well placed and looks beautiful. What are the main elements of a temporary tattoo? There is the ink used, the front paper and the back paper, glue and the plastic cover. The desired image is printed on the front paper. The ink is what is used to provide the design and color of the image. The glue is then applied on top of the image and the plastic cover placed on top. The back paper now has the instructions to follow. The most important thing to do when placing them on your skin is to make sure you moisten the backing by wetting it totally. This makes sure the image is well printed and that it is clear. As mentioned above, Muslim women have a ritual of printing henna tattoos on their skin mostly during wedding ceremonies. The difference with the other temporary tattoos is that the range of colors is not available for henna. It is only available in red or brown. Another thing is that the design can stay on the skin for a period of up to a month. This also depends on the method of application and the care taken during and after application. The diversity on what can be termed as a temporary tattoo is wide so it is important that for the best results you get the best quality. Temporary tattoos can really give an amazing look, if properly applied. So, it is always recommended to hire the tattoo artist who is well known because of his/her fine work. They can give a quality work. Also they have catalogues, so you can easily select the one that you think will suit you. Besides all these important things, it is also important to know that the artist is not going to use any harmful things to make a tattoo. That is it, so now all you need to do is just go and have a temporary tattoo and look apart. For more information, please visit http://www.dinodirect.com/temporary-tattoos/

Justin Bieber thinks he is ‘nuts’. The 16-year-old pop star suffers from insomnia and can’t stop himself from thinking about his loved ones, career and ‘God’ when his head hits the pillow at night, but believes his problems are a sign of his talent. He said: ”m crazy, I’m nuts. Just the way my brain works. I’m not normal. I think differently – my mind is always racing. I’m just . nuts. But I think the best musicians probably are. ‘ just turn over all night and think. My mind races. I think about all the things I didn’t have time to think about during the day – like family and God and things that should be more important but you don’t have time to think about, because you just get caught up in everything else during the day.’ Justin is enjoying his worldwide success but he accepts his fame comes at a price and he knows he can’t just to whatever he wants and has a responsibility to his fans. He explained to the February edition of Vanity Fair magazine: ‘t’s hard to really balance myself. A regular kid, if he catches the flu, he just gets to go home. But I can’t do that . Everything is important. But, you know, my sanity is important, too. Even if I’m angry, I’ll just put a smile on my face and fake it. I don’t often fake it – what’s me is me. I know I have to give up a lot of myself, or a lot of a private life.’ Despite the problems his singing career cause him, the ‘Baby’ singer won’t ever give up on his career and plans to push himself as far as he can. He said: ‘ see myself just growing. I didn’t know that any of this was really possible. I grew up in a really small town with not a lot of money, and I liked singing, but it was just something that was a hobby. As I get into it more, I want to grow as an artist, as an entertainer, and basically perfect my craft. I want to be the best that I can be.’
