What to consider before getting your first tattoo

Written by Recreation Magazine on May 22nd, 2019. Posted in Uncategorized

The History of Tattoos


The history of tattoos may be older than you think. In fact, the earliest records we have of tattoos go back thousands of years. Firm evidence suggests that tattooing was an ancient art, as mummified skin has been found to have tattoo markings. The oldest human tattoo appears to be from around 3000 BC, and belongs to Otzi the Iceman.


Otzi was discovered in 1991. His name comes from the location where he was found, the Otzal Alps. As the oldest human mummy found in Europe, his body was naturally mummified and preserved. Otzi sported a total of 61 tattoos, with the majority on his legs. Though many of these look like bad tattoos, it is obviously because of the mummification of the skin. Examination has shown that these tattoo designs were done with some sort of fire ash.


Otzi isn’t the only ancient example of tattoos. There are hundreds of examples across dozens of different cultures of tattoo art. Though popular tattoos may change, the art of tattoo work has remained. If you are considering getting a tattoo, there are some important things to consider, otherwise you may end up with bad tattoos and be in search of tattoo removal.

How to avoid bad tattoos


Because of how permanent tattoos are, it is important to ensure you are getting high quality work done. Bad tattoos are a nightmare. Though the tattoo removal industry is getting better and better, getting bad tattoos removed will not leave your skin flawless.


So what should you consider before getting inked? Here are some of our top considerations:

People Will Judge You: As much as we like to give the cliche “don’t judge people by how they look,” we all do. See a cute girl you want to ask out? You just made a judgment. Judgment isn’t always bad, sometimes we judge that we like something, however a judgment is still being made. Be ready to be judged, both for good and bad, because of your tattoo. If you are constantly worried about what other people think of you, getting a tattoo to “fit in” isn’t a good idea. That is what we call bad tattoos. Getting a tattoo should have meaning and reason behind it and be independent of what others thing.

Think A Long Time About WHERE The Tattoo Will Be: Whether you love or hate Donald Trump, he is right about one thing: location matters. Both in business and tattoos, location is very important. The tattoo life can be fun. Tattoos can express something about you. However, getting a tattoo across your forehead that says “F*** The Police” is probably an idea we would classify under bad tattoos. There are certain places that most people should probably avoid getting tattoos: face, neck, and hands. The reason is that these areas cannot be easily covered, and covering a tattoo is something most people feel they need to do to be appropriate for certain social or professional settings. Around 11% of people who have had a tattoo, went through a tattoo removal process (or are in the process of doing so). Much of tattoo removal comes from having a tattoo in the wrong location.

Tattoos Are Permanent: Look, we know that tattoo removal is a thing. It’s even a service we offer. However unless you are getting a henna tattoo (which lasts about 10-15 days), you should consider your tattoos as permanent. Even after the best tattoo removal, there will be an indication of where your tattoo was. Some tattoos cannot be fully removed because of how deep the ink is or how much ink has been layered. Consider a tattoo permanent. Doing so will help you make a decision you are happy with if you do decide to get a tattoo.

Impulse Is A Sign to NOT Get A Tattoo: Look we make money off of people getting tattoos. However, if you want to get a tattoo “on a whim” that is a BIG sign you should NOT get a tattoo yet. Remember, a tattoo is an important reflection of who you are. Think about it. Be deliberate. Make sure you are satisfied with your decision.

When You Want to Go Skydiving

Written by Recreation Magazine on May 6th, 2019. Posted in Adventure, Skydive in tampa, Skydiving certification florida

There are many sports practiced around the world, many of them involving using a ball or scoring points. Meanwhile, some sports are more exotic, and this even includes skydiving. This idea sounds terrifying to some, but many Americans in fact love the thrill of going skydiving, and a skydiving center might not be far away from someone interested in this aerial sport. Parachuting is another term for this, and a tandem jump with a group is also a fine idea. Going tandem skydiving can be a lot of fun and may be ideal for someone who’s nervous about going skydiving solo, but one tandem skydiving adventure may prove to an initiate that this sport is great fun. This sport is simple to perform and much safer than some people may think it is, and it can be done year round and by nearly any able-bodied person. When someone wants to go tandem skydiving or try it solo,

The Many Companies that Provide Quality Rolled and Shaved Bats for Sale to Improve Ball Play

Written by Recreation Magazine on April 26th, 2019. Posted in Baseball bat shaving and rolling, Rolled softball bats, Softball bat shaving and rolling service

Many different baseball and softball manufacturers and suppliers shave bats for the assistance of improved hitting. There are many different terms for defining or describing shaved bats that are able to add extreme energy to the hit you complete at the plate. With both shaved fastpitch softball bats and shaved slowpitch bats, there is the ability to hit harder than ever with a better bat in your hands.

The Bat Shaving Procedure

Knowing a little about baseball bat shaving and rolling, there is a process of trimming away the thickness of a bat’s barrel. This is done on a wooden bat, intended to take off the end cap with a digital precision lathe that “shaves” the inner barrel. This takes away composite material and provides the bat with more flexibility at the point of impact and increases the speed of the ball as it is sent into the field.

Shaved and Rolled Bats

Rolled and shaved bats are sold for use in slowpitch softball, fastpitch softball, and baseball.

World cup tournaments are popular internationally, especially considering the fact that not all locations have professional soccer or rugby as sports. However, with the availability of television channels that show these games, their presence has increased in the regions where they are not played. For this reason, soccer has developed into a professional sport here in the United States, along with the addition of rugby and other sports that are used as recreational sports. Because of the locations where world cup tournaments are held, world cup packages are often amazing travel tours.

Professional Sports Throughout Our Nation and Worldwide

Professional sports have grown across the United States, with football, basketball, and baseball at the top. That leaves much more room for development, especially with the many additional sports that are played professionally around the world. Even with the number of sports that are seen regularly at the Olympics, athletics along leav

If you’re a huge sports fan then you know how awesome it is to see your team play live at the stadium. Nothing can be the thrill of being there in the stands, surrounded by other fans, all amped up and cheering for the next big win.

While many of us dream of following our favorite teams around the country, it’s hard to know where to start. This is where World Cup packages come into the picture.

What Are World Cup Packages?

World Cup packages offer travel options for fans that want to see their favorites play live. When booking a world cup package you can usually customize what games you want to go to, the hotels you want to stay at, your flights, and even transportation! These packages are great for fans who want to plan out their season, but can’t go to every single game.

Being able to pre-select and book the games you want to go to also prevents future heartbreak if they end up selling out. This goes double for any finals such as the world cup or Super

What You Should Know About Buying A Boat

Written by Recreation Magazine on April 19th, 2019. Posted in Arctic cat dealer, Indian motorcycles for sale, Powersports dealerships

Recreational boating has become quite hugely popular all throughout the United States. As a matter of fact, recently collected data even shows that up to 87 million people in this one country alone are participating in recreational boating on a regular basis, a number that is only likely to continue growing in the years that are to come. And, of course, this means that the boating industry is very much thriving, with powerboat sales alone growing by as much as 7% over the year of 2016, now a couple of years in the past.

But why exactly is this the case? Why has recreational boating become so widespread throughout so many regions of this country? There are a number of reasons why. For one thing, people simply live incredibly close to navigable bodies of water the vast majority of the time. In fact, it has even been estimated that a full 95% of the population is no more than one hour away by car from at least one navigable body of water, if not even more than that.

Tips for Financing a Used Boat

So you’re thinking of purchasing a used boat, but you’re unsure how the financing process works. Well, it’s very similar to financing a car and there are some basic steps you can take to help you get a good deal. It’s possible to take precautions that will help to lower your interest rate and the amount of your monthly payments while still getting a great boat.

Build Your Credit

One of the best things you can do to make financing anything easier is to build your credit up over time. A great way to do this is with a credit card that you use for every day expenses and then pay back at the end of the month. Having a high credit score will significantly lower your interest rate and monthly payments, because boat dealers will know that they can trust you to make your payments.

Save Up a Down Payment

While you’re on the hunt for used boats for sale, you should also be saving up extra cash for a down payment. Down payments go towards the overall cost of the car a

A cold cereal bar.
A hot oatmeal bar.
A fresh fruit bar.
A coffee bar.
A pancake and fresh toppings buffet.
It is an unusual brunch menu, but you promised your daughter that if she earned a full ride scholarship to college, she could have any kind of party that she wanted. When both your daughter and her best friend achieved these goals there were actually row sets of parents who were doubly motivated to host a great celebration!
Although it was easy for the two high school graduates to come up with a menu, the real challenge occurred in finding the right place from the surrounding available party venues. Interestingly enough, there are a number of both private and public golf courses that serve as great venues for for everything from weddings to graduations to reunions and anniversaries.
