Posted by: Other on Thursday, May 26, 2016 What tattoo Removal really feels like.
by Alexandra Tunell
Few things are more cliché than being 18, in your first year at college and wanting to prove your independence by getting a really awful tattoo. Which is exactly what I did and how I ended up with a large, misshapen, black horse on the back of my neck that I regretted almost immediately. Unless the subject of bad tattoos comes up, most people who know me don't know about my horse (which isn't as random as it sounds—I'd ridden my whole life up to that point) because I rarely wear my hair up. When I do, I'm constanly aware (verging on paranoia) of who's behind me—god forbid they think I like the thing. It's a depressing way of life for a beauty editor who would love try out a new braid, bun or ponytail every day.

by Lani Teshima
Do you wear body jewelry in private places and you’re worried that you may set off airport metal detectors? With activities like attending conventions and being on a book tour, Elayne travels extensively… with her body jewelry on. “I haven’t had any trouble personally, and I still wear almost 40 pieces of body jewelry regularly and travel frequently,” she said. Quality metal body jewelry is non-ferromagnetic and will not set off the large walk-through metal detectors. However, the hand-held wands are often more sensitive and frequently do sound an alarm when scanning directly over metal body jewelry.

by Victoria Dawson Hoff
A month ago, when meeting my mother for brunch, I divulged that I'd been thinking about getting my septum pierced. "What's that?" she asked with palpable concern. When I gestured toward the small piece of cartilage between my nostrils, she promptly burst into tears. To placate the wails of "WHY would you DO that to your FACE," I hastily promised that I wouldn't. But three weeks later, I found myself at the studio of friend and expert piercer J. Colby Smith, and walked out sporting a dainty hoop at the tip of my nose. The initial pang of guilt I felt was immediately replaced by a sense of exhilaration for having directly disobeyed her.
