Its everywhere, people love it and are fascinated and so you made the visit to a tattoo parlor and either have your hand or leg or perhaps neck crested with a tattoo. You feel highly impressed at the designers work of art and can’t wait to show your friends.

Skin Tattoo

Its never a doubt that tattoos are in fact beautiful and pleasing, but it is the long term effects that bothers me. Over 2 million people alone in Argentina, ranging from celebrities, sport stars and even the common man on the street has a tattoo.Tattoo Ink can endanger the health than you could ever imagine. So, before you get a tattoo, here are some side effects that you are likely to encounter as time goes on.

Side Effects/Danger Of Having Tattoo On Your Skin
1. It Is Permanent, It Makes You Feel Uncomfortable

Tattoos are made by puncturing your outer skin with ink filled needles; this primarily affects the inner layer of the skin.This causes the outer layer to wear out as you grow older but the ink remains permanent on the inner layer.

This means that you tamper with the complexion of your skin and makes it nearly impossible to get back the original color and texture of your skin after tattooing on it.

Well, unless you opt for laser treatment, an external therapy which is so painful and extremely expensive, you might want to consider a rethink before you regret it in the future.

2. Its Chemicals Can Cause Negative Effects

Toxic chemicals like lead, mercury are used in preparing tattoo ink and when these chemicals are injected into your skin via needles, could trigger adverse effects which turns out to be quite detrimental for your skin as it can result to skin cancer and also permeation of major important organs. You should also be aware that tattoo ink is exactly the same as the ones used to paint automobiles and used for printers.

3. It Aggravates Allergies

Because the tattoo ink is composed of strong and toxic chemicals, there are chances of developing a major skin allergy or a break out just after you get a tattoo made on your body. And this is true especially if a person is already allergic or has tendency to catch bacterial infections. You could get red rashes which are although common in appearance, can cause extreme discomfort through itchy and irritable skin.

Hence, get an allergy test done before you go to get that tattoo carved. Common allergies that you might develop are Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Scarring and Eczema.

4. It Cause Life Threatening Diseases

One of the most significant and often neglected aspects of getting a tattoo on your skin is that it can cause life endangering diseases like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV and AIDS. Mainly due to infected needles and maintaining poor hygiene of the entire tattoo carving process. Giving into pleasure in an attempt to look unconventional and stand out from the crowd sounds cool as long as it does not affect your life.

There is no fun in indulging into something that could bring your life to an irrevocable end.

5. Stigma To Your Personality

While tattoos are a beautiful way to express creativity and art, many people in the society are still not very open in their perception about it. Tattoos can attach a stigma to your personality which can make you look rebellious or belonging to a certain genre. This can alter your image when you are out amongst other people.

Sometimes it does serve to boost your social image among friends or people thinking “out of the box” especially painters, musicians, stage performers etc.

At the same time, it could also lead to adverse effects on situations where a more conventional and formal approach is required. So choose wisely and envision the repercussions it would have on your image.

UTME candidates are therefore strongly advised to take advantage of the extension to register as request for further extension would not be entertained.

10 Ways To Keep Your Heart Healthy

What you eat and drink, your activity level, how you cope with stress and other individual lifestyle factors help determine the health of your heart. Heart disease is a progressive condition that can start early in life but can also be prevented or controlled by making smart lifestyle choices.

Follow a heart-healthy diet, get plenty of exercise, do what you can to reduce stress and live a life of moderation and you will be well on your way to maintaining a healthy heart.


10 Ways To Keep Your Heart Healthy

1. Eat a Low-fat Diet
A heart-healthy diet is low in total fat, saturated fats and trans fats that raise blood cholesterol levels. To cut saturated fat, choose lean cuts of meat and remove skin from poultry before eating. Choose low-fat and fat-free dairy products. To avoid trans fats, check the ingredient list on all commercially processed food products, especially baked goods and crackers, and avoid any that contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.

2. Eat More Fiber
Fiber helps lower blood cholesterol levels and helps you feel full, so you are less likely to overeat. A high-fiber diet contains nutrient-packed foods, such as fruits and vegetables, whole-grain cereals and breads and legumes, such as black beans, lima beans, chickpeas and lentils.

3. Avoid Stress
The way you handle both personal and professional stress may affect your heart directly, or it may affect other risk factors that lead to heart disease, such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels, physical activity levels and eating, drinking and smoking habits. If you feel overwhelmed by stressful events or respond to stress with poor lifestyle choices, speak to a health care practitioner about healthier ways to cope.

4. Adopt Regular Medical Checkups
See your doctor for an annual physical that includes blood pressure and cholesterol testing and monitoring. Take any medications prescribed to control blood pressure and cholesterol levels as directed or speak to your doctor about alternatives.

5. Reduce Cholesterol Intake
Cholesterol is found only in animal products, such as meat, poultry, dairy products and eggs. Lean and low-fat foods can still be high in cholesterol. Check Nutrition Facts labels to keep track of the cholesterol in your food and consume no more than 300mg daily.

6. Eat Fish
Eat fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines and albacore tuna at least twice a week. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish and in fish oil supplements, can lower blood triglycerides (fats), slow the buildup of plaque in the arteries, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of sudden death from heart attack, according to the American Heart Association.

7. Reduce Weight
Being overweight increases your risk of developing high blood pressure, high blood triglycerides (fats), low levels of healthful HDL cholesterol and heart disease. Losing weight decreases your risk of these and other health conditions that affect your heart, such as diabetes and sleep apnea (obstructed breathing).

8. Regular Exercise
Get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day, or at least on most days. Regular aerobic exercise such as brisk walking, bike riding, stair climbing, swimming, jumping rope, circuit training and dancing keeps your heart fit, raises your levels of protective HDL cholesterol and can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. Being active at home and at work rather than just sitting for most of the day also contributes to heart fitness.

9. Drink Moderately
Although a glass of red wine contains antioxidants that may help reduce the risk of heart disease and alcohol can cause a slight raise in HDL cholesterol levels, drinking too much alcohol can increase your blood pressure, your triglycerides and your calorie count. Moderate drinking is defined as up to one average-sized drink daily for women and two for men.

10. Quit Smoking
Many different chemicals found in tobacco smoke can damage your heart, according to experts at the Mayo Clinic. Smoking decreases your body's supply of oxygen and causes blood vessels to constrict. Simply cutting back or switching to low-tar and low-nicotine brands of cigarettes is not enough to significantly reduce your risk of heart disease. When you quit smoking, your risk of developing heart disease starts to drop immediately and decreases dramatically within the the first year.
