Don’t stick to dull pastimes. . . play hockey, say these sprightly Aussie over-75s – East Lothian Courier09.04.17

THE only thing green about them was the colour of the pitch beneath their feet but these hockey players boasting an average age of 79 showed that they could still stick it to players young enough to be their grandchildren.

Australias Vintage Grand Masters Team warmed up for an international tournament by stopping off in East Lothian to take on a ladies team from Haddington Hockey Club.

The youthful Haddington team ran out 5-0 winners but were surprised by the fitness and skill levels of the visitors, who boasted an average age of 79 and had two 81-year-olds in their squad of 18 players.

Claire Colquhoun, match secretary, wished the visitors all the best in the upcoming Grand Masters Hockey European Cup, which Australia are competing in.

Claire said: It was a really good game.

The reason they are over is the Australian team are training for a European tournament.

They were travelling to the European tournament and they went to Ireland and then to Wales and had a few days based in Haddington.

They arrived on the Sunday [August 13] and played us on the Monday evening. Tuesday they were training and then they visited the Edinburgh Military Tattoo on the Tuesday evening.

The match, which took place at Haddingtons Mill Wynd sports pitches, arose when Allan Golightly, a senior team coach and Scotland Veterans Over-65s hockey representative, invited the Australian team to play in Haddington ahead of their guest appearance at the upcoming Grand Masters Hockey European Cup, which kicked off in Glasgow on Saturday, with the final taking place this weekend.

At the Glasgow based games, the Australian team expect to be pitted against other international sides from England, Netherlands and Germany among others.

Prior to visiting Haddington, the Australians had already played two games each in England, Wales and in Ireland.

Team manager Bob Rowley said the upcoming tournament was an important precursor to the World Championships in Barcelona in 2018.

The friendship between the two sides stretched beyond the hockey field though, with a Burns Supper dished up at the Golf Tavern, on Haddingtons Bridge Street.

A piper and the traditional speeches were given before wishing the Australian team the best of luck.

Mark Galvan Jr. Is the Young Fullerton Tattoo Artist Turning Around an Old Shop – OC Weekly09.04.17

Monday, September 4, 2017 at 7:56 a.m.

By all accounts, Mark Galvan Jr. is still a pretty young tattooer. After all, the 25-year-old artist has only been in the industry for a handful of years, but hes already worked hard to put his stamp on an entire shop for the last half of his short career.

Two years ago, I took a job here at Explicit Ink with an old coworker, and we liked it but we didnt get along with the crew here, Galvan says. They had a whole weird dynamic here where theyd argue about stuff other than tattooing. They didnt like us coming into the shop with good portfolios and work ethic, and they wanted us to fail so most of them left. I was made manager because of my work ethic, and nobody liked that because I was half their age and just working as best I could. I hired my team here, and it was immediately obvious that the entire dynamic of the shop changed.

At this point, Galvan is on the verge of giving the Fullerton shop an entire name change and rebranding to help further erase the negative stigma and reviews that previous crews at the shop had unfortunately earned. But even as far as Galvans come in the last few years, it wasnt all that long ago that he was just a bored high school football player who was too injured to practice. Although it was an injury that effectively ended his athletic career, ending up temporarily sidelined eventually brought the young artist into the world of tattooing a decision which is clearly already paying off less than a decade later.

I was stuck in a wheelchair, but the coach would still have me go to practice to watch drills and everything, so Id usually keep a big stack of paper on me to draw on, Galvan says. One day, I was out of paper and hanging out in the shade under the bleachers, so I started drawing on my forearm and all my bros came over to see it. I dont know if they were fatigued or what, but they thought it was a real tattoo and thought it was cool. Ever since that day, I like that feeling of how cool they thought it was.

What started as a one-time occurrence because of the lack of paper quickly became a daily habit. Galvan started speeding through his school work in order to have more time to draw on his arms in class, and then the requests began pouring in from his friends. Since he always liked the reactions to his drawings, Galvan never had an issue with meeting the demands of his classmates an attribute thats carried into his all-around style of tattooing until eventually someone pointed out that he could be making art on people for a living in the future.

In the midst of a conversation one day, someone said You should be a tattoo artist, Galvan says. I dont know who said it, but I owe them everything. As soon as I got home, I looked it up and read about what its like to be a tattoo artist, and I knew thats what I wanted to do. I thought it was this amazing club or gang that I didnt have to fight anyone to get into, so as soon as I graduated high school I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

With a clear post-graduation plan in mind, Galvan explained to his family that tattooing was no longer full of convicts and drug addicts and received a small loan to get started before landing an apprenticeship at a shop known for churning out talented young artists. Although its obviously worked out for him at this point, Galvan has trouble believing that he landed such a solid learning opportunity given his complete lack of experience.

I walked in with my book of just these crappy designs and I dont know why they let me stay, but they called me up a couple of weeks later and asked me if I still wanted to do it, Galvan says. It was 12 to 12 for a whole year with no pay, but I did what I had to do for them and paid my dues. Some of it was legit, some of it mightve been illegal, but what paying of dues isnt? It all built that hustle into me.

Jacksonville, Ore. - Sweetwater Collective's owner, Johnny Smith, has family and friends that lost everything in Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago. This year with Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey, Smith's father lost everything in Houston with water rising eight feet in Smith's father's house.

On Friday, Smith will hold a raffle at his tattoo parlor to raise money to help first responders and search and rescue efforts after hearing how many people still need rescuing and remembering the devastation Katrina caused.

"They lost everything but there's still so many people down there that I'm sure are in desperate need of help and there are so many people trying to help and the funds necessary are not easy to come by," Smith said.

The raffle takes place Friday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. People can buy raffle tickets at Sweetwater Collective or pay for tickets over the phone. Each raffle ticket is $20 and the winner gets a full day session with Johnny Smith in Sweetwater Collective.

Tattoo artist calls Alley Cat tattoo home – Pilot Tribune09.02.17

Brent Woltman is the artistic talent behind Alley Cat Tattoos in Storm Lake. It all started with him when he was young and loved to sketch pictures. When asked about his favorite subjects to draw, Ninja Turtles and Godzilla, he replied with a smile.

He has been in business at Alley Cat for almost 14 years. He updates his portfolio throughout the years and will continue to do so.

Woltman became a tattoo apprentice when he was 18 in Des Moines. What does it take to become an apprentice? First he had to compile a portfolio of sketches to present to his mentor. This gave his mentor an idea of the quality of work Brent could do.

He liked what he saw and took him on as an apprentice. During this apprenticeship, Brent spent many hours watching his mentor.

You better be able to learn what you see, learn how to mop floors and clean toilets and this is a job requirement, said Woltman.

This teaches one the importance of cleanliness in the salon. As far as the mopping the floor, it is not that uncommon to find blood on the floor as well someone getting sick.

Woltman didnt learn on the job training when it came to tattooing. He first started out on grapefruit and oranges because the skin on the fruit is most like the texture and feel of human skin. The next step in the learning process was tattooing as many of his friends as possible. Woltman remembers his first legitimate tattoo being that of a hatchet man.

The way a tattoo works is using ink filled needles to inject the ink into the dermis of your skin. Then the healing process begins with the transparent skin cells healing over the top of the dermis allowing the tattoo to show through.

His body is covered with tattoos. Some of them he gave himself and the rest were done by others. I cant keep a steady hand needed to draw a tattoo while being in pain myself, Woltman comments.

The first step on getting a tattoo is to have a stencil to work with. Clients bring in photos or ideas of what they want. The next step is for Woltman to create the stencil either using the material brought in by the client or coming up with an original drawing of his own.

The stencil acts as a map for the tattoo artist. The area is shaved and a lotion is put on to sterilize the area. The stencil is placed on the client in the location he or she wants it to be. When this is confirmed the stencil is transferred onto the skin and is used like a road map for the artist.

Like a brush and palette for the traditional artist it is so with different needles and different colored inks. The tattoo tool becomes the brush for me, explains Woltman.

All his ink is natural based as to avoid allergies to the ink. Depending on the complexity of the tattoo will determine the time it takes to complete the work of art. Also depending on if the tattoo is going to be black and gray or have dimensions of colors takes time, too. A medium sized tattoo will take Woltman two to three hours to complete.

The worst, meaning most painful, locations to get a tattoo is ribs, face, feet or any other bony area. Most common places for tattoos are forearms, shoulders, calves and ankles.

Woltmans favor type of tattoos are subjects of neo nontraditional style.

Alley Cat renews its license every year and is inspected to get both blood borne pathogens and first aid certificates.

He has tattooed people from age 18 with the oldest being age 84. The lady wanted all her life to get a tattoo and it was one of the things on her bucket list, said Woltman.

Tattoo shop working to regulate industry – Alberta Daily Herald Tribune08.31.17

A tattoo shop in the city is looking to regulate the tattoo industry by offering courses on safety and proper procedures.

Cree8iv Ink Body Studio Ltd. is offering a 13-week 390 hour beginner tattoo course that will cover subjects such as bloodborne pathogens, infection control, and St. John Ambulance training. All students must be 18 years old or older and have some artistic ability.

The curriculum has received input and been reviewed by Alberta Health Services.

Were making it so that you need to be a journeyman, like a welder. You need so many hours banked before you can be a welder. We want to have it so you have the proper training and all this before youre actually a tattoo artist, said Erick Matheson, manager and piercer at Cree8iv.

The course is taught by Mathesons wife Bobbi-Jo, who has been a tattoo artist for more than seven years.

Matheson said the industry is changing from beginner artists offering their labour for free at tattoo parlours and paying an established artist for mentoring, to established artists sharing their knowledge with beginners.

Some people dont like the fact of what were doing, but like I said the industry is changing and were trying to make it so (that its regulated). Technically, you can go out, buy yourself a machine and a gun and you can call yourself a tattoo artist. You dont need to have so many hours banked, you dont need nothing.

The course costs $18,000 and while it doesnt come with a guarantee of employment, it does come with a certificate, a business licence, and a $950 tattoo starter kit.

We want to offer these people that want to actually learn how to do this and show them the proper way on how the equipment works, the proper way to clean so that they dont hurt themselves or hurt other people. Theres seven layers of your skin and if you go too deep with a needle you can really hurt someone or give them a whole scar tissue tattoo, said Matheson.

Classes begin Sept. 25 and are limited to four students per term. Those who would like to register should do so at Cree8iv Ink, which is located at 10024-100 Avenue.

New tattoo remover means new clients: Human trafficking survivors – The Mercury News08.31.17

SAN JOSE Up on the fourth floor of the Valley Specialty Center, theres a new machine called a PicoWay, a state-of-the-art laser blaster that scours flesh clean of tattoos faster and less painfully than its predecessors.

And officials want to take their new laser and aim it at a vulnerable population survivors of human trafficking.

Victims of human trafficking are literally tattooed or branded with the name of the person who has enslaved them, said Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez. Not only do we need to help these people transform through new kinds of programs, we also need to help them transform physically as well.

The $300,000 laser was acquired through a partnership between the county, San Jose and the Valley Medical Center Foundation, which collected money from private donors. Its the third laser to be used in the Clean Slate program that was founded in 1994 with a mission of helping gang members by removing their tattoos.

More than 2,000 have since gone through the program, which in addition to tattoo removal includes case management and peer counseling to put them on a path toward shedding a self-destructive former life.

Mary Benson, who founded Clean Slate while working as a volunteer to rid East San Jose neighborhoods of a gang infestation in the 1990s, said she is overjoyed that the new technology will mean expanding the base of clientele.

This beautiful laser is going to be such a benefit to enrollees, she said. For survivors of human trafficking who have been so brutalized it brings healing to remove a symbol thats a stigma and a reminder of a very traumatic part of their lives.

With the new laser, doctors can see more people who will need fewer treatments. Dr. Jack Ackerman, who has been removing tattoos at Valley Medical Center for nearly a decade. It not only cuts the amount of time per session, but chops the number of visits down considerably. A tattoo that might have taken 20 treatments to remove can now be done in 12.

He said the new technology makes for a much more pleasant session than what was available when Clean Slate started.

Twenty-five years ago it was very slow, and very painful, he said. A lot of times there would be bad bruising and bleeding, a lot more scarring wed use Lidocaine to numb the area.

Rebecca Esparza, a 23-year-old who joined Clean Slate after having an epiphany as an incarcerated teen she didnt want grow up to be a gangster like her family said the new laser is a major improvement.

The old one was 10 times more painful and theyd go over the tattoo three times as many times, said Esparza, who now works for Clean Slate and also studies communications at Cal State East Bay. Its nothing like it.

Leah Lee doesnt have gang tattoos and hasnt been in trouble, but the VMC employee volunteered to serve as a demonstration model for the laser unveiling event. She got her first tattoo at age 15 at a house party a scripted FAITH on her wrist. She covered that with a bigger tattoo a year later, a purple rose.

At 15 it seemed like a great idea, she said, but now Im 29 and I want it off.

She was nervous shed heard that the process felt like repeatedly being snapped by a rubber band or scalded by spattering oil and had been icing the underside of her wrist in anticipation.

She was pleasantly surprised. As the laser traveled over the tattoo, dramatically lightening the purple rose to lavender in a 30-second process she was more amazed by the result than startled by the pain.

Wow! said Lee. Oh my god, that looks amazing! Its a little uncomfortable but its not something thats going to make you cry. Its not like getting burned by hot oil at all.

CLEAN SLATE

Participants in the Clean Slate free tattoo removal program must be a San Jose resident between the ages of 14 and 25, with visible tattoos such as on the hands, wrists, neck or face.

They must be committed to a gang-free lifestyle and complete a Life Skills program and 30 hours of community service. They must be either working, going to school or enrolled in a j ob readiness training program.

More information is available atsanjoseca.gov/cleanslate or by calling 408-794-1660.

‘Texas needs us.’ From cops to tattoo artists, York, Chester, Lancaster people collecting donations – The Herald (blog)08.31.17

When the York Police Department put out the word that it was collecting supplies and water for victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, tattoo shop owner Nelson Red Herrera bought water -- three pallets of it (5,670 bottles).

Herrera, born in Cuba and raised in Miami, brought the water, dozens of boxes of diapers and baby formula and other items to the department to help people in Texas and Louisiana. And he has challenged dozens of other businesses in York and adjacent Gaston County, N.C., to do the same.

Hurricane Andrew in Florida, I lived it myself, Herrera said. Weeks with no electricity. I paid $25 for a bag of ice. I bought pizzas, hundreds of them, and gave the food away because people were hungry, man. I been there. Texas needs us. So we gotta help.

Herrera is quick to admit he may not look the part of a typical donor.

He has tattoos on his arms and face and neck.

A long time ago, he said he lived a tougher street life. He slept on a porch after Hurricane Andrew in 1992 with a gun in his hand. But in the decades since he has devoted himself to helping others when possible.

He also understands and respects the efforts of law enforcement in York to help in Texas, and be part of the national effort to show hurricane and flood victims they are part of a larger community of Americans, not separated by factors such as race, color or national origin.

We are all people who need each other in times like this, Herrera said.

The children and poor affected by the storm are particularly vulnerable to being without food, water, baby products, and items Herrera says they need.

They have to have hope they can get through it, and they have to know that somebody cares about them, Herrera said.

Herrera, who lives in York and owns Chaos Tattoos in Gastonia, and dozens of others responded to a Facebook post from police Sgt. Dale Edwards. The post said supplies were being collected to be delivered early next week. By Thursday morning the departments training room was half-filled.

The people of York have a huge heart and no doubt if this was us in a disaster the country would be helping us, Edwards said.

Donations came by truckloads Wednesday and Thursday and even were dropped off by people in a few bags.

I felt led to help any way I could. What the people are going through in Texas just breaks my heart, said York resident Cynthia McKay, who brought cleaning supplies, water and baby items.

The York police collection at the department runs through Tuesday when another volunteer has offered to drive a tractor-trailer filled with goods to Texas. To donate, go to the department at 12 N. Roosevelt Street or call 803-684-4141.

Other groups around York, Chester and Lancaster counties are collecting items or sending volunteers to Texas.

The 84 member churches of the York Baptist Association are asking for money donations through the South Carolina Baptist Convention. Donations can be made online at scbaptist.org. Disaster rebuild and recovery crews from the York Baptist Association that are part of the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief national team are on standby for possible deployment to help with recovery and rebuild efforts.

The Chester Police Department, 100 West End St. Chester, is collecting water and non-perishables including baby items and pet food through Sept. 7 for transport to flood victims. Call 803-581-2132 ext. 221.

Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene, 998 Dunlap Roddye Road, Rock Hill, is collecting non-perishables through Tuesday. Call 803-328-2134 or visit the church Facebook page.

Mark Wuerthele, a Lake Wylie resident, is filling a trailer with toys and baby supplies . He will leave Sunday to drive the items to Texas. Items can be dropped off at Lake Wylie Realty, 1 Executive Court, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through Friday.

The Upscale WeeSale will send donations from its latest charity sale to hurricane victims.

The popular consignment sale typically raises about $3,000 for charity each season. Consignors agreed to send this seasons funds to help victims of flooding in the Houston area.

Movement Mortgage of Indian Land is accepting orders for a custom-made shirt that will raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The shirt, which features an outline of Texas and the words, Texas-Sized Hearts for Houston, costs $20, all of which goes to Houston relief efforts. The sale ends Sept. 8.

Those interested can order the shirt at https://movementgear.com/.

The Movement Foundation is underwriting the cost of the shirts so the full $20 goes directly to disaster relief. Movement has 154 employees in Texas, including 17 in Houston. All employees have reported that they are safe. However several of them had to be evacuated from their homes and others experienced property damage.

The York County Democratic Party is asking for donations to be collected for flood relief.

No money will be accepted locally, but donors are asked to support the cause with a case of water or a can of baby formula. Contact: kngtolliver@yahoo.com or call 803-371-0892 or 803-327-4222.

American Red Cross volunteers George Sawyer, Regeana Phillips and Travise Smith, all of Rock Hill deployed Thursday for Texas to help with relief efforts, said Joe Hayes, executive director of the Red Cross Palmetto South Carolina Region chapter.

Friday, Alton Washington of Lancaster and Cleopatra Allen of Rock Hill will make their way to affected areas.

York, Lancaster and Chester County residents should stay on their guard to lower the risk of giving to fraudulent charities, according to South Carolina Secretary of State Mark Hammond.

Hammond said consumers should seek out charities that need support and be cautious of groups that approach you. Well-known charities typically have the manpower and infrastructure to get donations where they need to go, while charities that spring up overnight may be unable to provide as much assistance.

We have some of the most generous donors here in South Carolina, said Hammond, who said credit card or check transactions can be safer than giving cash. We want to do all we can to assist the victims and make sure charitable donors are getting the best bang for their buck.

The Secretary of State also recommends not providing personal or financial information to cold callers, including Social Security numbers, credit card and bank account numbers. Consumers can check the veracity of charities by visiting the S.C. Secretary of States Office website to search on a particular charity or by calling 1-888-CHARITI (242-7484).

Breaking the taboo of the tattoo in South Korea – POST-COURIER08.29.17

August 30, 2017

Getting a tattoo is still frowned upon in many circles in South Korea. Giving a tattoo is in the eyes of the law at least an even greater sin.Technically, only medical doctors are allowed to do tattooing. Mirae and Yo-Yo, two 25-year-old tattoo artists living and working in the capital, Seoul, are certainly not that.Mirae is a part-time model with a keen interest in fashion; Yo-Yo used to work in clothes shops, before taking a working holiday to Australia, where she began to consider training as a tattoo artist.I used to draw from time to time while I was in Australia, and some of my friends who I met in Australia or while travelling asked me to draw for their tattoos, or they got a tattoo from my drawing, she said.Yo-Yo decided she could not only draw the tattoos but give them, too.I think its more meaningful, she said.Yo-Yos not too worried about the fact the profession she has chosen is illegal.I think its quite silly, she said. Have a look around you guys can see lots of people who have a tattoo.The studio the young women share with about eight other artists is located underground, like many tattoo businesses. However, outside the entrance is a large sign displaying the businesss name and line of work.

Gulf Coast Tattoo Removal Upgrades Their Laser Tattoo Removal Services with the Astanza Trinity Laser – Markets Insider08.29.17

DIAMONDHEAD, Miss., Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gulf Coast Tattoo Removal was founded in 2015 and has since become one of Mississippi's top providers for removing unwanted ink. Recently, the rising clinic has upgraded their Astanza Duality by adding on the Eternity Q-switched ruby laser. Combined, the Astanza Duality and Eternity lasers become the Astanza Trinity triple-wavelength system. Gulf Coast Tattoo Removal wishes to expand their clinic's removal capabilities by offering a third wavelength for treating stubborn pigments and colorful tattoos.

"Over the past two years, Gulf Coast Tattoo Removal has removed thousands of tattoos and transformed many patients' skin," said James Embry, nurse practitioner and founder. "After seeing a rise in our clientele, I knew it was time to upgrade to the Trinity. Now we're able to provide even faster ink clearance and deliver full-spectrum results to patients with multicolored tattoos."

The Astanza Trinity is a combination Q-switched Nd:YAG and Q-switched ruby laser system. Together, these lasers emit a total of three versatile wavelengths 1064 nm, 532 nm, and 694 nm for complete removal across all ink colors. The Trinity's 694 nm ruby wavelength is particularly special because it targets resistant pigments like bright blue and green that other traditional lasers are unable to clear. The Trinity is safe to use on all skin types and is designed to shatter more ink in each session, reducing the number of overall treatments needed to achieve complete tattoo removal.

"James and the staff at Gulf Coast Tattoo Removal do a tremendous job of delivering high quality treatments and customer care," said Bryce Fisher, Astanza Sales Representative. "Their investment in the Astanza Trinity is proof of the dedication they have towards delivering the best tattoo removal results throughout Diamondhead, Biloxi, Gulfport, and beyond."
