Tips on Getting Brooklyn Tattoos You’ll Love

Getting a tattoo is a big decision. Especially if we are talking about your fist one. Because you are stuck with it for life (yes, you can laser remove it later, but that is way more painful and expensive than getting a tattoo), you want to make a good choice. Here are some great tips on getting the tattoo you love when in Brooklyn.

Think it through 

Don’t rush it. I mean it, do not ever make a hasty decision when thinking about getting tattooed. Don’t even think about getting one while drunk, because you might regret it the next day. So, take your time. No one is rushing you; you have all the time in the world to choose your perfect design. And another piece of advice – do not get tattooed while young and never ink your boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s name.

Find the perfect idea

The process of finding the perfect tattoo can be lengthy, especially if you do not have something specific in mind. Some know that they want dragons, others the picture of their favorite pet or flowers. Even then, when you know what you want, you should take your time and do your research. Let’s say, for example, that you want to get a rose. Because there are so many stages of a rose, you should look up all of them and see which one suits you best. Don’t forget about the color – although red is the most frequent choice, you might want to go with pink, yellow or even blue. You will get some good advice on finding the perfect tattoo idea right here: https://tatring.com/getting-tattooed/TattooAdvice-2

The size always matters

The size of the tattoo is also very important and no one can decide that other than you. Think about how big you want it to be. If you do not want it to stand out so much, go for a small one. Do not exaggerate and do not just imagine how it will look like. Find a drawing you like and print it to see how it looks like on your body.

Where do you want it? 

After size, there’s placement. It’s not the same if you get your tattoo on your back (which will be covered most of the time) or your wrist. How visible do you want it to be? Think about other aspects such as your job – in cases such as teaching, for example, tattoos can be frowned upon. Also, the pain level when getting a tattoo varies depending on the area.

Find the perfect Brooklyn tattoo artist for you

Once you’ve decided that you really want a tattoo, you must start searching for a good artist. You do not want it to be made by an artist friend who does not have any experience in the field – no matter how nice of you that would be, remember that your tattoo will stick with you forever. This is why you need the best tattoo artist in town. Even if you are not from Brooklyn, you can travel there to check out tattoo shops like Hand of Glory Tattoo. You need an experienced artist, open to answer all your questions.

This is why you should first think about booking an appointment with the artist. Tell him about your vision and if you have only some sketches, he might help you get the drawing done. He will help you with any questions tattoo and pricing-related, but it is not his job to choose the final variant of the tattoo. That is totally up to you.

Take good care of your new tattoo 

When you leave the tattoo shop, make sure to ask for some tending advice. To heal properly, a tattoo must be taken good care of. You should neither expose the tattoo to sun rays nor bathe while it is still healing. You can also read some more on the subject here. It’s important to know how to attend to your tattoo from the very beginning. If you believe that it is not healing properly, you can revisit your tattoo artist to get his opinion on the matter, but if you follow his advice and take good care, everything should be alright. It’s time to enjoy your new tattoo! 

H&M STUDIO SS19

H&M UNVEILS H&M STUDIO SS19 – AN ADVENTUROUS, GLAMOROUS COLLECTION FUELED BY WANDERLUST

Today, H&M unveils the campaign for the H&M Studio SS19 collection, “The Glam Explorer”, styled by Géraldine Saglio and photographed by Lachlan Bailey against the dramatic backdrop of Arizona. Inspired by a glamorous adventurer, the campaign sets the tone for H&M’s decision to swap the Paris Fashion Week catwalk for the Sedona, Arizona desert, where the SS19 collection will debut in an immersive theater format. The unique storyline can be followed on #HMStudio and the collection will be available to purchase beginning on March 21st on hm.com and in select H&M stores.

“The H&M Studio SS19 collection caters to a glamorous, adventurous spirit: we’re designing for a woman who doesn’t want to limit herself. She might be going to a party one evening in a sequined skirt, but the next morning she’s up early to go to yoga in her metallic-stripe leggings – so we’re thrilled to be able to present the collection in Sedona, Arizona, channelling the glamorous explorer spirit that infuses the clothes,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt , Design Director H&M

“Working on SS19 with the H&M Studio team has been a very satisfying project for me. We wanted to capture the mix of high glamour and nature in its wildest form, inspired by the famous 1975 French movie, Le Sauvage, with Catherine Deneuve as a runaway bride on a tropical island. The combination of high glamour and more utilitarian pieces feels very ‘me’ – I like to dress in this way and I hope other women will too,” says, Géraldine Saglio, stylist and creative consultant

Taking a free-spirited glam explorer as its muse, the SS19 collection offers a versatile mix of thrilling, statement pieces with low-key, utility-led separates. With mood board references that include the vibrantly-hued mineral ponds of Utah, the collection’s key pieces comprise of a rainbow-hued printed dress, a decadent sequin-splattered skirt, and a structured utility jacket – all of which spell effortless glamour.

ABOUT H&M STUDIO

Created by a dedicated design team, the limited-edition collection of trend-led looks and statement pieces has in the past been unveiled during Paris Fashion Week with a runway show.

Paola Hernandez Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019

By Bob Cal

The performers transitioned gracefully through dozens of choreographed formations like moving architecture, all styled in Paola Hernandez’s latest collection. For their Fall/Winter 2019 collection, the Paola Hernandez fashion label decided to tell their story through an impressive two-hour modern dance performance, innovatively marketing all the goods of their latest designs. The dancers from the Elisa Monte Dance company showed the practically of Paola Hernandez through motion and the brand’s message of inclusivity through the diversity of shapes and sizes.

Practically and urban minimalism were major highlights from Paola Hernandez’s fashion instillation; the models looked nothing less than sharp wearing jeans, detailed white sweaters, knit black sweaters, large cardigans, unique black dresses, tights, jumpers and blouses. The quality of fabric and fabric details seemed to be a major emphasis. The color pallet consisted of all neutral colors like black, grey and white; sometimes simplicity, when done with chic flair, can be a cheeky fashion statement.

Born in Mexico City, Paola Hernandez now manages her fashion line in Brooklyn, New York. Prior to studying fashion at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London, Hernandez studied philosophy, an educational background she uses as inspiration for her symbolic and contemporary fashion brand.

Become More Confident On Date

Many people confess that they always feel a bit weird when they go out for a date. This is only natural to be somewhat shy and not confident enough when going to send a romantic evening with a person you like or even have a crush on. However, when shyness prevents from going for dates at all, this should be addressed.

If you are so unconfident in yourself that you avoid communication with the opposite sex and therefore cannot manage to have a happy family, perhaps you should apply for assistance from the corresponding agencies. There are many reliable and respectable online services similar to CupidTrust marriage agency https://www.cupidtrust.com/ and others, that will help you find a date even without leaving your house. If you believe that you will manage on your own, it is time to become more confident.

Methods To Boost Your Confidence

When you have a date planned, take a serious approach and make sure you will not sabotage yourself when the X day comes. The closer the date, the more unconfident you may feel, so find a support team in the person of a friend or relative that will push your out of the house when the time comes.

 

However, you must take some steps before the date. Make sure you are healthy and feel fine; a runny nose is able to ruin your date. Think about the clothes you wear, including underwear and socks, even if you are far from having sex on the first date. Anything can happen, you can soak wet under rain and will have to take your shoes off, for example. Do not eat anything unusual before the date to avoid bloated stomach.

On the X day, take care of the following things:

  • your nails;
  • your hair;
  • your teeth;
  • your clothes;
  • your image (hairstyle/makeup);
  • positive mood.

If you do not feel really comfortable in this posh suit that you wear on important business meetings, do not put it on. You have to be comfortable in order to be confident. Try to organize a neutral date that will not demand to show off, like bowling or skating, where one can be unlucky and therefore unhappy with self. Going for a walk, to a cafe, and just talking is one of the best first dates the humanity has invented. Afterward, when you know each other better, and know the preferences and abilities of each other, you can do something more extreme together than drinking tea.

When on a date, try to talk less and listen more. This does not mean being silent and leave the business of entertaining your person to your crush. If you discuss the topic you both like, it is ok to talk a lot. However, try not to show off and tell how cool you are. If you apply this strategy to manage your unconfident self, you will most probably fail. So be more humble and better ask your date about themselves. You will know the person better, and will most probably impress them as brilliant interlocutor because you are attentive

Cynthia Rowley Spring 2019 Show

Who: Cynthia Rowley, Bill Powers, Kit Keenan, Whitney Port, Ashley Tisdale, Rachel Feinstein, Sofia Wylie, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Timo Weiland, Madison Grace, Laura Marano, Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, Sophie Macks, Natalie Suarez, Anna Moon, Caroline Lowe and Addison Riecke

What: Designer Cynthia Rowley showcased the Spring 2019 collection with a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Where: Cynthia Rowley Showroom, 16 Morton Street, New York City
Why: To unveil the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2019 collection, the brand hosted an experiential show featuring a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Collection Statement: We shot our lookbook against an out-of-this-world backdrop. There’s nothing more magical than a full moon…the glow of the moon against soft metallics, the weightlessness of a ruffled dress. If you asked me when I was kid what I wanted to be when I grew up, fashion was light years from my mind. I wanted to be an astronaut – the ultimate adventure.

I’ve always thought one theme, one inspiration was an antiquated idea. Why limit yourself? Fashion should have no boundaries and when you wear the clothes they should never hold you back from any experience.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the underrepresentation of women in fashion leadership roles. This is something that has always been important to me. These are cool, fearless women – strong, talented athletes following their passion…that’s real inspiration to me. Let’s roll
