Tattoo Ideas and Tattoo Coverup

I find tattoos fascinating. Each one is a unique work of art. The designs choices are limitless which makes it a project to choose the perfect design.

I especially like when I spy little semi hidden tattoos.

I had two lovely ladies come into the salon for facials the other day. A mother and daughter. The mom had facials in the past but the daughter never had one. 

Mom thought getting facials would be a special thing that she could do with her daughter since her daughter does so many things with her friends. A moisturizing hand massage is included in my facials and every once in a while I find a fun surprise.... a little hidden tattoo! 

As I massaged the daughter's hand, I spied words on the underside of her wrist. Toora Loora Li. Words from An Irish Lullaby. I didn't ask about it. I just enjoyed seeing it and created a story in my head about it. 

Many employers don't allow tattoos to be visible, so little hidden tattoos are perfect.

The underside of the wrist is a great area to place a not so obvious tattoo. The ankle is easy to hide too.

The ribs are perfectly hidden for work. Well, for most jobs anyway!

Many people get tattoos that have special meaning. Tattoos in honor of someone or in memory of someone or a pet. It makes them extra special. Joyful little pieces of art!

This beautiful tattoo belongs to a friend of mine. It's on the side of her body. Like many tattoos, it has special meaning. That's what I love about tattoos. There's almost always a special meaning to them. 

This tattoo began as 3 butterflies representing this special person, her sister and her mother. You can see them there in the center in blue, pink and yellow.

The tattoo then grew a few years later with beautiful pink flowers to honor her mother. It's a butterfly garden.  I just love a butterfly garden...

a live one and a tattooed one!

Pink tulips are her Mom's favorite flowers. Such a beautiful, special tribute. 

Look at this amazing face!

But not everyone sees them as joyful. My parents for instance. During our family beach vacations, I hear many comments from them as they people watch on the beach. "Oh! Look at that one. It's disgusting." or the classic, "If God wanted people to have tattoos, he would have put them there." Bahahaha! Little do they know, I have a hidden tattoo of my own!

On one of our many family beach vacations, my sister and I decided it would be a fabulous idea to put tattoo decals on our lower backs. Not only on us, but on our teenage daughters as well. Then, we planned to show up at the beach after Mom and Dad had settled in for their people watching. It couldn't have gone more perfectly. Well, actually it would have been more perfect if a video camera was rolling to catch their reactions. 

In a nutshell, they freaked out. Mom said, "Oh Jill! You got a tattoo. How revolting." We told them there was a buy get, one free deal on the boardwalk so our girls got one too. Other people were actually enjoying the show from their beach blankets. What a spectacle!  Mom caught on pretty quickly though and spoiled the fun. She realized they were decals, but we would have had Dad going all day!!! Here's a pic!

I feared for my niece when they would see her real tattoos this year during our family beach vacation, but oddly enough, there were no comments. Either they saw them and chose to keep their mouths shut or their eyesight is really bad at this point!!! 

Sometimes you just have to cover a tattoo up to avoid a scene. In fact, that niece of mine just got a new job as a server in a restaurant.  She was told she has to cover the tattoo on her forearm. It's easy to cover a small tattoo and keep it covered all day with the right makeup. I have covered small tattoos with makeup for clients for special occasions in a flash.

Now you see it. Now you don't!

Large tattoos take some serious time to cover. You had better get a job that allows tattoos to show!!!

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out. Read more about blackhead, whiteheads and blind pimples This is a common problem for the under-eye area. It is a dry, delicate area of the skin. I see it a lot on my clients. Heavy products

I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
