Primal or not, I like my mods.
Whenever I get asked about my tattoos I say we have been getting inked longer than we've been eating bread and thus our body is much more adapted to it.
What do you think? Primal / non primal?
That's Twisted:P I'm going to say primal but is BDSM primal/ non primal?
Wow, clayberg, believe it or not I have been thinking about it for a long time! What can be more primal than the desire to dominate? I suppose me being a girl kind of breaks it, and that's when some of my feminist / LGBT / vegan friends policitize the paleo lifestyle and call me mean names
Had I known about the toxicity of certain dyes used for tattooing, I may have given more thought into getting them. In particular red dye is said to contain mercury to preserve the colour
Red inks are usually toxic and are the ones most commonly reacted. They don't have mercury to preserve the color - mercury oxide IS the color. Other red inks from cadmium, iron oxide, etc. are quite allergenic too. Yellows are also problematic.
Good quality (standard in legal studios) black ink rarely causes reactions though.
Thanks for the correction. Even so, I would still be wary now of putting black dye into my skin.
Hm, intresting topic. Seems to me, that ancient tribes used to mark themselves to distinguish which tribe they belonged to(?) so I'd say definitely primal in that respect.
In todays world, (from my POV) going primal is an act of rebellion against conventional wisdom and I love that I'm essentially flipping low-fat/high-carb the bird. Getting inked was an act of rebellion on my part too so it felt very primal.
I guess I tend to equate rebellion with primal. Ha!
Black dye gave my locaclized hives on my latest tattoos for about a year. The tattoos are only black, so no confusion there. Strangely my older tattoos are fine! Primal or not, I will be spot testing from now!
Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!
