Where to Find Tattoo Designs

Tattoo-Designs-3-150x150If you cannot find the design you want from among those you see in the tattoo parlors, what are you supposed to do? You do not want a custom design but you want something that is unique and different from the designs you have seen. It can be frustrating, especially if you do not know exactly what you want. You cannot define what you want but you know you will recognize it when you see it. Is there an easier way to find tattoo designs than going from shop to shop hoping that something will call out to you?

Thanks to the Internet, you can look through thousands of different tattoo designs and find the one that appeals to you. You will find everything from animals to even logos from various family sects such as the Celts, Scots and others. You will also find many other common organizations featured, and the designs are online you can take as long as you want to look through everything available before you locate the design that appeals to you the most. You will find many different sites that have tattoo designs available which gives you a wider selection from which to choose than by going to the tattoo shops and looking around. For the most part the shops are only going to offer those designs most commonly requested, so their selection is more limited than what you can find online.

Once you find the design you want, how do you obtain that design in order to take it to a tattoo artist? In most cases, you can print the design you want from your home computer and take it with you to the tattoo artist. There is no guarantee which tattoo artist will be able to provide the tattoo design you want but at least you know what you want and you only need to find the artist that can do what you want.

Make sure you choose someone who is experienced so that your design will come out the way you want it or you may find yourself struggling with the results because it does not look like it did in the picture. You have to allow some leeway when you are asking for something that is different from what the tattoo shop normally does but there is no reason you should not still receive high quality work.

The Paleo Blueprint

Shed Body Fat, Raise Energy & Stay Healthy for Life

Paleo_cover-trans-e1445981109829What is the Paleo Diet?
For 2.5 million years, early man foraged and hunted for seafood, meat, vegetables, fruit, nuts, roots and seeds. This period of time before the development of agriculture is known as the Paleolithic era. The Paleo diet is also known as the Stone Age diet, hunter-gathering diet and the caveman diet. No matter what you call our ancestors, some things haven’t changed. Man’s digestive systems have evolved only the slightest amount in the 10,000 years since farming changed our diets.

Shortened to Paleo, the modern diet is an approach to nutrition that mimics the early man’s diet for ultimate health.

Our minds are modern, but our bodies and brains still need the same food. Gastroenterologist Walter L. Voegtlin first popularized the Paleo diet in the 1970’s. He argued in, “The Stone Age Diet,” humans as carnivores, chiefly needs fats, proteins and a small amount of carbohydrates for optimum performance. For the last 30 years, obesity has been increasing in the United States. Our modern diets are laden with preservatives, processed sugars, and fried foods. Today’s health crisis has led to a renewed interest in Voegtlin’s tested approach to healthy living.

Benefits of the Paleo Diet
The advantages of the Paleo Diet have been researched and proven in numerous academic journals. It is amazing how changing what we put in our mouths can cause dramatic changes in our quality of life.

o Lose fat- Though the Paleo diet is designed as a weight loss plan people inherently lose weight. The foods that make up the Paleo diet are what we call fat burning foods. In fact, the Paleo diet allows you to eat large quantities of delicious food while restricting calories. The result is a lean, fit body.
o Fight Disease- The Paleo diet is proven to help prevent diabetes, Parkinson’s avoid Parkinson’s, cancer, heart disease and strokes.
o Improve Digestion- Many digestive problems such as, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and indigestion can be avoided.
o Combats Acne– Eating the Paleo way means avoiding the foods that cause acne. When sebum is overproduced or obstructed the sebaceous glands enlarge and form pimples. Foods in the Paleo diet do not cause the insulin spikes that cause a sebum boost. As a result, you can expect smoother, more attractive skin.
o Feel Good- Not only does the Paleo diet help people healthier and look younger it also makes you feel better. Paleo supporters swear by the caveman lifestyle because it just “feels” right. The only way to find out the energy and confidence they experience is to try it for yourself.

Growing Vegetables In Containers For Beginners

GrowingVegetables_pbook-small-e1446754829961If you have a small garden or no garden at all then you can grow your own vegetables in containers. This is a great, low maintenance way for you to grow your own food at home without the expense and trouble of maintaining a full sized garden. For anyone who is pushed for space or who lives in a city, container gardens are absolutely ideal. The same if you rent or move a lot, containers can come with you wherever you go.

Growing your own food at home is a great way to get your own fresh produce that is very tasty and good for you. Home grown produce does not have any of the chemicals in that produce from the supermarket has. It is grown and ripened naturally (unlike store bought vegetables) which means your own home grown produce is packed full of nutrients and flavor.

You will find that many children who refuse to eat their vegetables will happily eat those you grow at home because they taste so much better. Plus if you have children then a container garden is great for them because it is easy to maintain and fun to look after.

Growing Bonsai

Bonsai are miniature trees grown in pots. The aim of bonsai culture is to develop a tiny tree that has all the elements of a large tree growing in a natural setting. This look is achieved, principally, by branch and root pruning and shaping, but other factors are also important. The texture of the trunk, its look of age, the moss and the under plantings in the container — all contribute to the illusion of a miniature tree as it is seen in nature.

A presentable bonsai can be created in a few seasons. Cultivating these miniature potted trees is both an intriguing hobby, and a means of adapting a wide range of plants to specialized and decorative uses. Bonsai require daily watering during their growing season, and, because the plants are rooted in shallow pots, careful pruning.

Bonsai are kept outdoors most of the year, but — from time to time — these miniaturized versions of nature are brought indoors for display. Only certain tropical trees, shrubs, and vines can be continually kept indoors full time as bonsai.

Bonsai, as an art form, stems from ancient oriental culture. It originated in China and was developed by the Japanese. In the 13th century, the Japanese collected and potted wild trees that had been dwarfed by nature. These naturally formed miniatures were the first bonsai.

When demand for the small trees outstripped the supply, Japanese gardeners began to train bonsai from native trees. They shaped the trees to give them the illusion of age and naturalness. Over the years, the Japanese devised standards of shape and form, which gradually began the classic bonsai styles. American bonsai are much freer in concept and style than Japanese bonsai. American bonsai growers have recognized that the horticultural and aesthetic rules are important, but are specifically aimed at Japanese culture. Because of this, Americans have taken oriental styles and applied them to plants never grown by the Japanese. Therefore, the rigid procedures and names used by the Japanese are not used in this bulletin.
