Justin Thomas Tattoos: Where Is He Inked and What Do They Mean? – EssentiallySports10.08.21

Justin Thomas is one of the most successful and popular golfers right now. Of course, along with his incredible PGA Tour journey, fans are also interested in learning more about the golf icons personal life. This includes everything from his family and the house he owns to his tattoos, which have their own meaning behind them.

The 28-year-old star has two tattoos made, both of which have a deep meaning to them. Lets take a look at both of those tattoos, and why the golfer decided to get them.

Thomas first tattoo is on his left arm, just below his elbow. This tattoo is meant to honor Thomas and his family and represents Thomas, his mother, and his father. The tattoo is three lines (or roman letters) that have a line on the top to make it look like a T for Thomas.

Thomas had explained the reason behind his tattoo on Instagram, revealing that the line meant his family, including himself.

Sometime after his first tattoo, Thomas decided to get a second one this time to honor his grandfather, Paul Thomas. Justin Thomas comes from a family of golfers, and Paul was the first professional golfer from the family.

His grandfather, unfortunately, passed away earlier this year in February. He was 89. Thomas apparently got the tattoo done before his grandfather died.

This particular tattoo can be seen on the inside of his right upper arm. This tattoo is actually the signature of his grandfather. Thomas even spoke about how he got the signature and had to involve his grandmother in the process.

I said, `This is weird, but can you have grandpa sign something?' Thomas said. His signature is very Arnold Palmer like, and I always remembered that. I asked her to send me a picture of it. She said, `Should I even bother asking? I told her no.

Thomas added that he ended up sending a picture, which was then showed to his grandfather. Paul even joked about the tattoo, telling Thomas that he would be asking him for residuals every time he saw it on TV.

Already having two tattoos, one can only wonder if Thomas might get a few more tattoos over the years.

Tattoo artist receives share of 12000 funding to help ‘decolonise’ Trinidad governor –

A tattoo artist has been given a share of 12,000 of museum funding to ink people in a project to decolonise a contentious portrait of colonial governor Sir Thomas Picton.

Picton, a Welsh lieutenant-general, was remembered as a war hero after being killed at the battle of Waterloo, but his harsh governorship of Trinidad has been reassessed in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests.

The National Museums Wales has put up 12,000 of funding for a project to reframe the colonial narrative about the governor, whose portrait hangs in the National Museum Cardiff, by recruiting a tattoo artist to ply her trade.

Trinidadian tattooist Gesiye said she will offer tattoos in a ritual, a healing opportunity for Black Trinidadians as part of her commission-winning project.

The National Museum of Wales had advertised the commission, also awarded to four-piece art collective Laku Neg, as a project which centres and positively celebrates Black consciousness.

Picton was governor of Trinidad in the 1790s and early 1800s, and was accused of executing slaves during his tenure.He caused controversy when he ordered the torture of 14-year-old Louisa Calderon, which led to his recall to London and a conviction, which was later overturned.

Jake Paul calls out Tyron Woodleys tattoo loophole and wont commit to boxing rematch – Dexerto10.08.21

American YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul has called out ex-MMA fighter Tyron Woodley over a tattoo loophole ahead of the pairs potential rematch.

Jake Pauls August 29 boxing match with Tyron Woodley was the latest in a long line of YouTube fights, traceable all the way back to KSI and Joe Wellers original 2018 bout.

The American YouTuber came out on top via split decision in a tight encounter, with Woodley now pushing for a rematch. Paul, though, called out the ex-MMA star over his failure to get a tattoo the two had wagered on the first fight.

Woodley subsequently obliged and shared the images on Twitter. However, something seems amiss to Jake.

The YouTuber is seemingly not buying Woodleys concession, revealing in a TalkSport interview why he wont commit to a rematch just yet.

Lets see what happens. He was like three or four weeks late on the tattoo, he let the hype die down, the 24-year-old said. I think he had a call with his accountants and he saw how much taxes he had to pay and he was like oh, man, I need to get this tattoo right now.'

There were also doubts about the tattoo itself, with Paul suggesting Woodley may change it should he get his rematch.

The weird thing about it, Paul continued, is the tattoo is on his middle finger and its done in a way where he can change it to say f*** Jake Paul. He did it so the I looks like an F or could be changed to that, so I think personally hes going to change it to say f*** Jake Paul on his middle finger Hes trying to find loopholes and be slick but hes not as smart as he thinks he is.

A rematch between the two looks to be getting further away, rather than approaching imminently.

Theres no shortage of fighters wanting to get into a ring with Jake Paul though, with boxing legend Tyson Furys younger brother Tommy among those wanting to settle his differences with Jake.

Boxing icon Saul Canelo Alvarez hasnt ruled out a fight yet either, but he wants to see Jake improve somewhat first.

Andy Ruiz Jr has a new tattoo and it covers his entire back – GIVEMESPORT10.08.21

Andy Ruiz Jr, the man who famously defeated Anthony Joshua, has now not only transformed his physical appearance, but has also transformed the entirety of his back into an art canvas.

The Mexican heavyweight became a common household name after his fight with Joshua, which was technically never meant to happen.

It had only come about because AJ's original opponent Jarrell Miller had failed multiple drug tests in the run-up to their scheduled fight at Madison Square Garden.

Miller was ranked as the third-best heavyweight fighter at the time, compared to Ruiz Jrs no. 14 positioning in the rankings, but they go out of the window when you step inside the ring.

Between both fighters, they had both produced 21 knockout finishes, but what set them apart was that Joshua was undefeated and Ruiz Jr had lost once. However, in amazing style, Ruiz Jr won via TKO in the seventh round, perfectly highlighting that physical presence isnt vital in boxing, as he was far from in stereotypical shape.

Through becoming the first person to professionally beat Joshua, Ruiz Jr put himself onto a large platform and is now a large idol to many underdogs.


Prior to Ruiz Jrs breakthrough into worldwide fame, his professional boxing record stood at 32-1 and his amateur career stood at 105-5. In amongst his staggering amateur record, he had also obtained two Mexican national junior Olympic gold medals.His professional career would then begin on March 28, 2009.

Even more recent to this, though, Ruiz Jr has stunned his fans and the boxing community with his most recent tattoo piece, which quite staggeringly spreads across his entire back and onto his bottom. He has given his original victorious some extra emphasis as well.

The image, of which he shared online of his new piece of ink, also showed his newly trimmed body shape.

The tattoo includes what looks like a roman gladiator wielding a sword. On a whole, his new piece is all black with added shading and shadowing.

As with many people, each of their tattoos contains a deeper meaning and this is correspondent to Ruiz Jr also, with him having many previous tattoos, with one being found on his chest which displays his religious beliefs and the roses represent several people he holds dear to him; and one on his right bicep displaying his heritage.

But with all of his new ink on his back, when will he be presenting it on the canvas next?

It could be as soon as the end of this year against either Luis Ortiz or Charles Martin. Who would you be backing if it were to happen and are you a fan of his bold tattoo choice?

Euphoria Tattoos, artist using permanent ink to help people share a part of themselves with the world – WTXL ABC 2710.08.21

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) With the tip of his needle, a permanent image inks onto the arm of Alain Rodger's customer.

It's an ace of spade on the inner part of his right forearm. A simple design that gives Rodger's client a way to give the world a visual into who he is.

"I remember fourth and fifth grade drawling a lot, more than I was doing my school work," Rodgers said.

Alain is a tattoo artist and the owner of Euphoria Tattoos.

From a young age, he's always loved to draw but if you ask him why he became a tattoo artist he'd say "I kind of picked it up as a joke".

A joke that turned into a 27-year-long career.

Rodgers said it's a process to tattoo someone.

He first has to create the customer's idea on his iPad, print it out to make a stencil, then thoroughly clean his station before he is able to get to work.

"There is a lot of my pieces walking around on this earth, and I think that's really cool," Rodgers said.

In his career he has made 27,000 thousand tattoos.

Rodgers said each tattoo symbolizes a different meaning.

"Someone who passed away, to graduating to achieving a goal they've achieved with whatever they're interested in," Rodgers said. "Sometimes people don't even need a reason to get a tattoo."

Rodgers said one of the coolest parts has been witnessing the evolution of tattoos in society.

Now more than ever - he's seeing older generations coming in for their first piece of ink.

"If you're older it's because you were told you weren't allowed to get a tattoo. They were bad. They were taboo. Now, they've become more main stream," Rodgers said.

His shop first started on Gaines Street, but he's had to expand to South Monroe.With five artists, he's hoping to continue growing, something he says wouldn't be possible without this city he calls home.

"I'd like to fill my shop up with as many artists as I can so I can tattoo the world," Rodgers said.

And that makes this tattoo shop Totally Tallahassee.

Dwyane Wade responds to fan showing off new tattoo of his iconic quote – Heat Nation10.08.21

Retired Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade offered a fire emoji to praise a fan who decided to get a tattoo of one of his iconic quotes.

The quote is something that Wade has tattooed on his body and is one of the strong beliefs thats helped the Heat icon reach many of his goals.

Wade grew up in difficult circumstances in Chicago but managed to develop into a standout player at Marquette University. He was drafted with the No. 5 overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft.

Over his 16-year career, Wade played a key role in helping capture all three of the franchises NBA titles. The first of those titles came in 2006, when he was named MVP of the finals.

Wade has other tattoos that adorn his body, though it seems clear that the inspirational aspect of the quote is something that resonates with his fans.

Wrinkle creams: Your guide to younger looking skin – Mayo …10.08.21

Wrinkle creams: Your guide to younger looking skin

Do over-the-counter wrinkle creams really reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? It depends.

People buy nonprescription wrinkle creams and lotions with the hope that these products can reduce wrinkles and prevent or reverse damage caused by the sun.

Do they work? That often depends on the products' ingredients and how long you use them. Because these over-the-counter (OTC) wrinkle creams aren't classified as drugs, they're not required to undergo scientific research to prove their effectiveness.

If you're looking for a face-lift in a bottle, you probably won't find it in OTC wrinkle creams. The benefits of these products are usually only slight.

Moisturizing alone can improve the appearance of your skin. It temporarily plumps the skin, making lines and wrinkles less visible. Moisturizers are lotions, creams, gels and serums made of water, oils and other ingredients, such as proteins, waxes, glycerin, lactate and urea.

Wrinkle creams often are moisturizers with active ingredients that offer additional benefits. These added ingredients are intended to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles. The effectiveness of these products depends in part on your skin type and the active ingredient or ingredients.

Here are common ingredients that may result in some improvement in in the appearance of your skin.

Hydroxy acids. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) include glycolic, citric and lactic acid. They are used to remove dead skin cells (exfoliate). Using an AHA product regularly prepares your skin to better absorb other products and stimulates the growth of smooth, evenly pigmented new skin.

AHAs, beta hydroxyl acids and a newer form called polyhydroxy acids have also been shown to be effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies creams and lotions as cosmetics, which are defined as having no medical value. So the FDA regulates them less strictly than it does drugs. This means that cosmetic products don't undergo the same rigorous testing for safety and effectiveness that topically applied medications undergo.

Because the FDA doesn't evaluate cosmetic products for effectiveness, there's no guarantee that any OTC product will reduce your wrinkles.

Consider these points when judging the merits of using a wrinkle cream:

An anti-wrinkle cream may lessen the appearance of your wrinkles, depending on how often you use it, the type and amount of active ingredient in the wrinkle cream, and the type of wrinkles you want to treat.

But if you want to take the guesswork out of your skin care regimen, try these more reliable ways to improve and maintain your skin's appearance:

A dermatologist can help you create a personalized skin care plan by assessing your skin type, evaluating your skin's condition and recommending products likely to be effective. If you're looking for more-dramatic results, a dermatologist can recommend medical treatments for wrinkles, including prescription creams, botulinum toxin (Botox) injections or skin-resurfacing techniques.

Latest from Mormon Land: Picturing Jesus Why the art you see may have it wrong – Salt Lake Tribune10.08.21

Step into the foyer of a Latter-day Saint meetinghouse and you are supposed to be greeted by a painting of Christ.

Not just any artwork, mind you, but one of 22 approved depictions of Jesus.

That begs a question that is impossible to answer but almost as impossible to resist asking: What did Jesus look like?

Its one blogger Chad Nielsen explores in a recent Times and Seasons post.

Relying on ancient scriptural summaries and more modern explanations from early Latter-day Saint leaders, Nielsen notes that the Christian Savior is usually described as radiant, glorious and cloaked in light or fire.

Wrote church founder Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery in reporting their 1836 vision of Jesus in the Kirtland Temple: His eyes were as a flame of fire; the hair of his head was white like the pure snow; his countenance shone above the brightness of the sun.

Nielsen recounts why so many familiar and famous paintings portray Christ as white, even though it is doubtful that Jesus would have had fair skin or blue eyes.

He was Jewish, he writes, and, according to Isaiahs prophecy, did not necessarily stand out in his appearance. ...That likely meant that he was a dark-skinned, brown-eyed Middle Easterner. He was not European.

Nielsen speculates because thats all anyone can do on this matter that Jesus may appear differently to different people so that they will recognize him according to their expectations and focus on the message being presented.

(Think of the 1977 movie Oh, God, with an earthy George Burns playing the heavenly being. I took this form, Burns Almighty says, because if I showed myself to you as I am, you wouldnt be able to comprehend me. Or, in a more current flick, 2011s The Adjustment Bureau, theres the mysterious and never-definitively-seen godlike Chairman, who can appear in any form.)

At the end of the day, Nielsen writes, we do not really know what Jesus looks like. Our scriptural canon gives us no real definitive statement.

(If only there had been Praetorian Polaroids or synagogues with surveillance videos or disciples with cellphone cameras, right?)

Then again, not knowing, the blogger concludes, gives us artistic freedom to imagine his appearance.

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) President Dallin H. Oaks, first counselor in the First Presidency, President Russell M. Nelson and President Henry B. Eyring, second counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, during the 191st Semiannual General Conference at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021.

Aside from the naming of 13 new temples, no major announcements took place at the past weekends General Conference, but there were major addresses and other highlights:

General authorities played to the big room again, speaking from the Conference Center Auditorium for the first time in two years. But, save for a few hundred invited attendees, the 21,000-seat hall was mainly empty during this fourth straight all-virtual global gathering.

The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square sang at three sessions, the scaled-back groups first live conference performance since October 2019. All the singers were vaccinated, tested and physically distanced.

President Russell M. Nelson thanked members who have heeded the faiths COVID-19 counsel which consistently has included calls for vaccinations, masking and social distancing and trumpeted temple worship while challenging members to build solid spiritual foundations.

Apostle Dale G. Renlund, a former cardiologist, praised the safe and effective vaccines but said divisions that have arisen during the coronavirus pandemic point to the need for unity among Latter-day Saints.

In his first public address since his much-debated August speech at BYU, apostle Jeffrey R. Holland encouraged listeners to go all-in with the gospel, saying that there can be no halfway measures in Gods kingdom.

Fellow apostle Neil L. Andersen reaffirmed the mandate that members, media and others eschew most uses of the term Mormon and detailed the churchs efforts to scrub the moniker from its platforms and communications.

German general authority Seventy Erich W. Kopischke delivered a powerful and personal sermon about the pain caused by mental illness in the most extensive conference coverage of the subject since Relief Society leader Reyna Aburto and Holland tackled the topic in 2019 and 2013, respectively.

Four women gave speeches (three offered prayers), including President Camille N. Johnson, who delivered her first conference address since being named in April to oversee the childrens Primary, and general Relief Society first counselor Sharon Eubank, president of Latter-day Saint Charities, who spotlighted projects to help those in need around the world. There is so much more to do, she said, urging members with a willing heart to step up and say to the Lord: Here am I, send me.

Read summaries of Saturdays sermons and Sundays sermons.

On this weeks show, Emily Jensen, a writer and web editor for Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, reflects on the weekends General Conference the words, the music, what inspired, what disappointed, and what the proceedings may mean moving forward.

What Did Egyptian Mummies Really Look Like? A Gene-Tech Company Has Unwrapped the Mystery, Creating Hyper-Realistic Portraits – artnet News10.08.21

A team of forensic researchers have digitally reconstructed the faces of three ancient Egyptian males, each more than 2,000 years old, using DNA samples culled from their mummified remains.

Experts at the Virginia-based technology company Parabon NanoLabs used DNA phenotypingor a scientific process for determining an organisms physical attributes from their genetic makeupto project the mens facial features and skin color at age 25. From there, the companys forensic artist synthesized these predictions into 3D images of the individuals, which look like characters from a sophisticated video game.

The company said in a statement that its researchers believe This is the first time comprehensive DNA phenotyping has been performed on human DNA of this age. They presented their work at the International Symposium on Human Identification last month.

Buried between 1380 B.C. and A.D. 425, the three individuals hailed from the ancient Egyptian city of Abusir el-Meleq. DNA from their bodies, now publicly available, was sequenced by scientists at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and the University of Tubingen in Germany in 2017, marking the first time an Egyptian mummys genome had been successfully re-created.

Parabons recent facial reconstructions, which depict the men with light brown skin and dark eyes and hair, help to illustrate the central finding from the Max Planck scientists work four years ago: that the genetic makeup of ancient Egyptians is more closely related to that of modern-day individuals in the Mediterranean or the Middle East than it is to contemporary Egyptians, who tend to have more Sub-Saharan DNA.

Its great to see how genome sequencing and advanced bioinformatics can be applied to ancient DNA samples, said Dr. Ellen Greytak, Parabons director of bioinformatics. These techniques are revolutionizing ancient DNA analysis. Parabons technology has also been used to augment forensic evidence in police investigations and solve cold cases.
