Deciding to get a tattoo can be one of the toughest decisions you’ll ever have to make! It’s highly personal, in the sense that nobody can make your choice for you -it’s all on you! A tattoo by its nature is something that lasts. Once you’ve made your choice, there’s no going back, and the tattoo should be exactly what you want. Tattoos often represent something special in your life, and have a personal design that is meaningful to you. The huge choice of tattoos available can be overwhelming, but you can make the best choice for yourself by thinking carefully about your own priorities. Tattoos are almost like a second skin, and can really help you express who you are and what you have lived through.
Follow a trend or decide for yourself?
In the world of tattoos, there are trends and fashions, but there are also classical styles. The typical classic style tattoo -also called Americana style- contains coloured images with strong significance, such as skulls, often merged with roses. These elements create a sense of mystery in the tattoos, and they are symbols that can be interpreted in various ways: signs of strength, symbols of the supremacy of man over nature, or vehicles to convey your own personal emotions and meanings. This year sees the return of this kind of tattoo. If you have any doubts about your first tattoo, feel free to ask the help of your tattoo artist. For example, pay a visit to The Black Hat Tattoo team in Dublin if you need any advice or information.
One of the first factors to consider when you are planning to get a tattoo is the color -are you going monochrome or multi-colour? Tattoos can be made up of various shades of black, grey and white (white sometimes giving the tattoo the appearance of a scar). There is also a wide array of bright colours to choose from. Your choice will also be guided by whether you plan to show off your tattoo to other people, or whether you are getting it just for yourself.
The shape and form
There is a huge variety of shapes and forms to choose from. You have tattoos that are really similar to paintings, you have iconic images or even simple designs. You may like to go for a tattoo that ‘adapts’ to your own body, following your own shape and form. For example, certain tattoos following the line and shape of your shoulders can convey strength. You can also use a tattoo to highlight a line or curve in your body that you particularly like.
New techniques in tattooing
There is a new type of tattooing technique now available called biosensing. This technique involves matching the colour of the tattoo to the person’s blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels change, the tattoo changes colour. Such tattoos have been used to monitor people’s pH and sodium levels. They have also been tested by researchers at Harvard and MIT. Tattoos can also be designed to cover physical defects, such as scars or birth marks.
Choosing your tattoo artist
When choosing a tattoo artist, you should first consider their personal style. Try to find someone whose style matches what you are looking for, as this will lead to optimal results. Asking around for advice can be helpful, but it is important that you yourself are happy that you have found the right tattoo artist for you. In fact, it can often be the case that the tattoo artist doesn’t like the idea you suggest, or the design you have made. Talk it out between you!
Take inspiration from celebrities (who often publish their tattoos on Instagram) but do not limit yourself to exact copies. It doesn’t’ really matter what Chloe Moretz, Bella Hadid or Ed Westwick wants on their bodies, you are the one who is going to live with the tattoo, and it’s essential that you choose something that really reflects your own personality!
Dark, white, milk or with hazelnuts, chocolate is a sweet temptation that most of us can’t resist! And sometimes, we can even imbibe an entire bar, instead of the one or two modest squares we had planned to nibble on…. So, does that make us addicts? Does cocoa lend itself to dependency?
An addiction to chocolate is possible
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimate thaT chocolate dependency or addiction is possible, although it cannot strictly be considered a drug. Among the people who consume the most chocolate, those who eat more than 100 grams per day, giving up chocolate would cause only mild anxiety, and no more.
Different from sugar addiction
Chocolate is a special type of product, that produces a different type of pleasure than is produced by sugar, which can drive people to over-consumption. Chocolate in fact contains two substances that act on the brain: caffeine and theobromine. Caffeine is well known to promote the secretion of stimulant hormones.
Chocolate: an antidepressant containing substances similar to nicotine or morphine
Consuming chocolate, which is a mild stimulant, promotes the activation of certain brain circuits. Cocoa is rich in magnesium -a mineral salt that has antidepressant effects, which stimulates the secretion of dopamine. Chocolate also contains salsolinol, a substance comparable to nicotine or morphine, which mimics the effects of dopamine. Furthermore, chocolate can also have an affect on the sensory receptors, through its texture, its taste and its fat and sugar content, which promote the secretion of endorphins, the famous feel-good hormones. So there’s no reason to deny yourself, as long as you enjoy it in moderation!
There is much debate around the topic of female ejaculation, when a woman ejaculates fluid during sex. But is it an actual ejaculation, strictly speaking? And what triggers it? Can every woman experience this phenomenon? Doctor Pierre Desvaux is going to teach us a little about the subject.
What is female ejaculation?
Female ejaculation is when a woman “ejaculates”, releasing a liquid when she orgasms or when she is close to orgasm. This happens in a very small quantity for the majority of women, while it is much more abundant in others.
Not all women can experience female ejaculation
According to a study led by sexologist Pierre Desvaux, between 10 and 40% of the female population can ejaculate. It may happen to them as a once off, occasionally or regularly. It is a real ejaculation, although it can often go unnoticed, because it is mixed with other more noticeable vaginal secretions. Whether a woman orgasms or not, the liquid comes from the Skene glands and the para-urethral glands.
Another similar phenomenon
There is however another similar phenomenon, in which a woman appears to ejaculate, but the quantity is much more abundant. The liquid that is released can sometimes reach up to 300 mls. However, in this case, the liquid is made up of urine that comes from the bladder, via the urethra.
How does this phenomenon occur?
During sex, the kidneys continue to produce urine, which is stored in the bladder. Among the women surveyed, the bladder was empty at the beginning of the arousal period, it filled up and was emptied after ejaculation. This urine is often colourless and odourless, because it is freshly produced. In general, the woman needs to be fully at ease and needs to let go fully in order for this to happen. It is absolutely not an incontinence problem.
Letting go is the key to female ejaculation
In order to achieve female ejaculation, the area near the G spot in the vagina needs to be stimulated. However, what is even more important is to fully let go. In any case, female ejaculation and the release of liquid from the bladder as described above are two different phenomena, and do not necessarily lead to orgasm, even if they can be very enjoyable sensations.
You are sure to know what we are talking about when we mention those thousands of little red dots that appear on your legs after a trip to the beautician’s for your waxing appointment! But what you may not know is how to get rid of them, because for some of us, they can last several hours. But did you know that with a little turmeric, you can make them disappear in the blink of an eye! Here are 12 original tips to take the pain out of hair removal.
1/ Apply rose water and turmeric to get rid of red dots on the skin after waxing
After having a leg wax, are you inevitably left with red dots all over your skin? Even if they are not painful, they can sting a little, and they are somewhat embarrassing! The remedy: rose water mixed with turmeric, both of which have calming and soothing properties.
2/ Apply chamomile tea bags to ease the sting after shaving
If you shave regularly, you are sure to know all about the rash-like burn from the razor, especially in the armpits or on the bikini line. To remedy this, you can apply chamomile tea bags to the areas: soak them in hot water (which you can drink afterwards if you like) and allow them to cool in the fridge for around 15 minutes. Apply the tea bags as a compress to affected areas. Instant relief guaranteed!
3/ Get an extra week out of your hair removal by using lemon juice
Squeeze a lemon and pour the juice on to your legs. Rub it in with your hands and leave it to dry. You should slow down the regrowth by a few days.
4/ Wash your legs with shampoo before waxing
As strange as it may seem, don’t forget that the hair on your legs is still hair! So wash it as it should be washed, before mercilessly removing it! This will help the hairs to stick better to the wax.
5/ Use conditioner instead of shaving foam
Special women’s shaving foam is nothing but a marketing stunt! Because any oily substance will do the trick. And conditioner is great, because it leaves no traces, unlike this gooey mess that’s as thick as cream!
6/ Apply an ice cube after hair removal, if it hurts
If your skin is very sensitive, rub an ice cube to your legs between each strip of hair removed. This will naturally numb the pain. However, don’t forget to dry the area well each time before applying fresh wax.
There are certain things we prefer to keep to ourselves -especially during this unique time. Because being pregnant means no less than your body changing completely, being flooded with a torrent of hormones that seem to be fighting with each other, and posing endless existential questions about your future child. In short, mums-to-be don’t have it easy! And it doesn’t take much to upset them. Here are a few phrases NEVER to say to a pregnant woman!
1/ You’re not due for 5 weeks? I was your size when I was giving birth!
You want us to feel even worse about ourselves, is it??
2/ Are you allowed eat that?
You are already talking to a woman who is permanently starved with the hunger -don’t push your luck! There is nothing more annoying than someone preaching at us and watching every bite of cake we put into our mouths.
3/ My bump was much bigger than yours by that stage. Are you sure the baby’s okay?
As if we weren’t worried enough already!!!
4/ Make the most of all the sleep you can get now -there’ll be no more of it once the baby gets here!
Well thanks for the advice…..
5/ Do you want another one after?
Are you really asking us if we want another baby, even before having given birth to this one??
Did you forget to use protection the last time you had sex? Maybe you don’t want to go and do a pregnancy test, but have you noticed that your body feels totally different? Have you been trying for a baby for so long, that you are afraid of being disappointed? Before doing a test, here are a few sure signs….
1/ Your period is late
A clear sign!
2/ Your breasts are sore
Like in your teens, your breasts feel tight or hard, as if they are trying to grow.
3/ You feel nauseous
An upset digestive system is a classic!
4/ You are disgusted by meat
It is possible that, even if you have never been a vegan, you could start to feel repulsed at the idea of eating animal flesh. One more vegetarian in the world! For nine months anyway….
5/ You feel a pull in your lower abdomen
Does your tummy feel tighter, pulled or swollen, and seem to have developed muscles all on its own? Take a test, it is quite possible that you are pregnant!
It is second nature to us now whenever we are faced with a question: whip out our smart phone and ask our best friend Google, world authority on absolutely everything! And sex is no exception to the rule: the brightly coloured search engine helps us find solutions to all our sex quandaries. Here are the 7 questions asked most often on the net, with the key answers!
1/ Where is the G spot?
The G spot is found around 5 cm from the entry to the vagina, against the wall that separates it from the bladder.
2/ How to make a woman orgasm
The clitoral orgasm is the easiest to achieve, while the vaginal orgasm is somewhat more elusive. Foreplay and practice are key, but also communication, which is indispensable in terms of seeking orgasm.
3/ Can you make your penis bigger?
The only way of making your penis bigger is through surgery, but the operation is not without risks, and the aesthetic results are not guaranteed. There is no natural method for enlarging the penis. But be aware that size is not the most important thing!!
4/ How to measure a penis
In adolescence, men become almost obsessed with the size of their penis. The best way to measure it is using a rigid ruler, starting at the base (at the base of the bladder) and measuring to the tip, when it is soft and/or erect.
5/ What age do you need to be to buy condoms?
There is no age restriction. You can get them at your local family planning clinic, in the pharmacy, the supermarket or in machine dispensers.
6/ How to penetrate a woman
Even the most simple of things requires a little technique. But the Kama Sutra is there to help anxious lovers!
7/ How long does sex normally last?
Depending on the man, sex lasts on average 4 or 5 minutes. The ideal duration for sex is between 7 and 13 minutes. Anything more than than, and one partner could start to become tired of it.
In our teenage years, it’s an obsession, in our twenties, we are always looking for more, in our thirties, we calm down a little, and in our forties, we can sometimes get lazy about it! Sexual relations can be a touchy subject in many couples that have been together for a long time. But there is nothing unusual about that! When routine sets in and we start to make the effort less often, it becomes increasingly difficult to get motivated about sex. The less you have, the less you want…. But did you know that sex unconsciously affects your love life?
The more we make love, the more love we feel
Did you know that sex can strengthen the bonds within a happy couple? The more we make love, the more we feel emotionally attached to our partner. What’s more, couples who get stuck in a sexless rut, as well as noticing a drop in their sex drives, also feel a little less loving towards one another. On the contrary, after having made love, the brain unconsciously strengthens the links between two people. Magic, right? You know what you have to do….
How many times a week should you make love to keep the spark alive?
Tracy Cox, a relationship expert and writer for the Daily Mail claims that the average frequency of sex in well established couples is closer to five times a month than five times a week. Couples under the age of 25, or people who have just gotten together, tend to have sex more often, although this gradually becomes less and less over the years. That said, the frequency of sex is not the only important criteria in terms of measuring a couple’s compatibility or happiness.
Have you just broken a nail? Or can you just not seem to get rid of the smell of cigarettes that has been progressively yellowing your nails? Or are they simply not growing fast enough for you? Here are a few practical tips that should give your nails a whole new lease of life!
1/ Eat a handful of almonds every day, to make your nails grow faster and stronger
A diet that is rich in nuts, particularly almonds, will help grow your nails (and also your hair) faster, while also strengthening them. They will be less brittle and they will grow easier. And almonds are not only good for your nails!
2/ Do regular whitening treatments on your nails with just two simple ingredients
Have you still not managed to give up smoking? And are your nails dull and yellow as a result? Revive their shine with this easy recipe: in a bowl, mix the juice of half a lemon with a dessertspoon of bicarbonate of soda, and immerse your nails in the mixture for around 3 minutes. They will come out stronger and whiter.
3/ Avoid putting dark nail polish directly on your nails
To spare your nails from the aggressive products in nail varnish, always apply a protective base coat before applying dark coloured nail varnishes.
4/ Stick some stickers to your nails to help create the perfect French manicure
By sticking simple round stickers to your nails, you will be able to create a professional looking French manicure, even if you’re a complete beginner.
5/ Rub your nails with vinegar before applying your nail varnish, to make it last longer
This will allow you to apply the colour more easily and more evenly. What’s more, the vinegar will help your manicure to last longer.
