The Exciting World Of Tattoos

Tattoos - think of them and the first word that comes to mind is 'style' or 'fashion'. But do you know how they originated? Tattoos have come a long, long way. Initially used for purposes such as identification and worship, tattoos have evolved into ultimate fashion statements today. Since when have tattoos been in existence? The art of tattooing has been around for a very long time. Not for a couple of decades, but for thousands of years.

This report aims to study all about tattoos, from their origin and evolution to the traditions in various parts of the world. It essentially consists of the following parts:

  • The meaning of 'tattoo'
  • Tattooing over the ages
  • Tattoo customs
  • Modern tattoos

Meaning of 'Tattoo'

What is meant by the term 'tattoo'? A tattoo refers to a design painted on the skin of human beings or animals.

The word 'tattoo' has been derived from the Samoan word 'tatau', which means 'to mark twice'. This has reference to the traditional method of applying designs on skin. The syllable 'ta' means 'hand', while 'u' means 'colour'.

Tattooing over the ages

When was the first tattoo done? In other words, when did the art of tattooing originate? The earliest instance of tattoos has been found from the Upper Paleolithic Era, i.e. between 10000 and 38000 BC. Instruments used for tattooing from this period have been excavated. These instruments typically consist of a clay dish and needles made from bone. The needles are inserted into holes made into the dish. It is believed that the dish would hold pigment, while the needles would be used for piercing skin and making designs. Another evidence that tattooing did exist during this period has also been obtained figures made of clay and stone that have engraved designs on them. Probably, these designs represent tattoos.

Evidence of tattooing in the Bronze Age has also been found. The tattooed body of the European Iceman 'Oetzi', found near the Italian-Austrian border in the year 1991 is believed to be from this era. This is the first instance of tattooing that has been found on a human body.

The following are some instances of early tattoos found in different parts of the world:

Egypt: Another instance of ancient human body tattoos has been found on mummified bodies in Egypt believed to be from the period between 2160-1994 BC. It is during this period that the art of tattooing flourished in Egypt and spread to other areas of the world. In this sense, Egypt is often referred to as 'the cradle of tattoo art'. Several mummies with body tattoos have been found from Egypt, believed to be from the period between 2000 and 3000 BC. One of these found at Thebes - is the mummy of Amunet, a priestess of goddess Hathor. Her body has a number of lines and dots inked on it all over. Other mummies found from this period show evidence of tattooing on the lower abdomen, in the form of lines and stripes.

Tattooed Egyptian mummies from around 1300 BC have also been found. Most of these tattoos are geometrical shapes, while some are religious in nature. Several of them have the goddess Neith tattooed on the skin.

Nubia: Another instance of religious tattooing has been observed on the Nubian mummies dating back to about 400 BC. Many of these mummies were found to have the god of rivalry, Bes, tattooed on the skin.

Combining sex with fashion, burlesque with the catwalk, the Pussycat Dolls put on a show that brought out celebrities like Quincy Jones, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, among others.

They know how to put on a show, and this show was no exception as they intertwined the catwalk - walk with burlesque skits and Pussycat Dolls musical interludes, turning the fashion show into an entertainment event.

Corset: A Hot, Sexual and Appealing Fashion Accessory

Corset is a type of cloth mostly worn by women for beauty purposes; it may also be worn by men, as it has a medical function as well. This style detail has been extremely popular in middle ages and it's getting on top once again.

Corset is a garment worn to mold and shape the torso into a desired shape for aesthetic or medical purposes. They are typically constructed of flexible material, such as cloth or leather, stiffened with boning inserted into channels into it and held together by laces in front or back of it.

Corsets were usually worn in middle ages by almost all women and were surely most fashionable. Sometimes they even caused serious health problems, because women who worn them wanted their torso to be as slim as possible but ignoring their body fitness and health.

Nowadays, women wear corset for getting a bolder and a slimmer look. Corset is now used to slim the body. Corset is mostly used by women for a curvy figure by reducing the waist and thereby exaggerating the bust and hips, whereas men use corsets to get slimmer and sleek.

Corset is considered to be a sexual detail, because as we have mentioned before that it's the best way to exaggerate the bust and hips while reducing waist, which makes the figure extremely feminine, therefore, sexy. Whereas on the other side wearing corset is also having some of the advantages and disadvantages also.

Firstly we will talk about the health benefits and drawbacks.

The benefits are as such that corset promotes good posture and they can reduce pain and improve function for people with back problems. Yet, they can cause Glenard's disease; deform lower ribs, which may lead to organ failure or dehydration. Wearing a corset may also deform stomach and liver.

Now, talking about personal advantages, corsets may give a straight posture by instantly reducing the waistline and spread the weight of big gowns. Some corset wearers enjoy the feeling of being "hugged" by corset and they also make people feel warmer. Moreover, the abdominal pressure maintenance by frequent corset use can help wearer reduce body fat by inhibiting the appetite without dieting, slimming drugs or cosmetic surgery. However, it's rather difficult to get used to wearing corset. If the wearer is unhabituated to shallow breathing, the muscles can soon tire and start working too slow, severely reducing oxygen supply. That's why it is important that the corset lengthens the waist.

So, It is recommended that if somebody plans to wear corset then he/she should be well practiced for shallow breathing and don't tighten it very hard. Getting is to maximum tightened corset must be performed gradually in order not cause health problems.

So, if you are planning to purchase a corset then enquire about it and then and then you should go for a purchase of one. You should just make sure that if you are using it properly, so it wouldn't cause you any problems. When you are habituated to wear it then you can wear it more tight and of course you will look more sexy and even a hot personality!!!!!!!!!

A Second Life for Fashion: Used Clothing

A shopping mall in New Jersey displays T-shirts in a vibrant palette which looks trendy and is an up-to-date fashion. Far away in an African country, a young man happily strolls through a market wearing a T-shirt with an American logo printed on it. Though seemingly irrelevant, both panoramas are interconnected with each other through a line of clothing. How does clothing which is originally sold in the US end up in the clothing shelf of an African lad? Globalization and recycling of used clothing work together to make this possible. The journey of a garment does not end as a landfill all the time. They may be recycled in two ways; either it will be sold again as used clothing or will be shredded and mechanically recycled into raw material for the manufacture of other recycled apparel products.

A resale or used or second hand clothing encompasses the following:

  • Classic Vintage: Here garments from the past eras are sold.
  • Thrift: where storefronts like Salvation Army, and flea markets sell used clothing.
  • Consignment: where clothes that are 1 to 2 years old and are in good condition are sold individually through the owners through stores that share a percentage of the sale price. This is good option to buy designer clothes at a lesser price.

After the trade liberalization in the 90s, there has been a remarkable increase in the demand for used clothes. Cities like London, and Philadelphia export used clothing in 50 kilogram bales through their wholesalers. Mostly used clothing is being exported from US, and to African countries like Cameroon, Ghana, and Benin. T-shirts, bins and trousers are sorted first, and then quality garments are taken to vintage stores for resale. The bales are transported for a long distance to be sold to the local vendors. Majority of the people in many developing countries wear used clothes on a daily basis. Countries on the bottom of the economic scale like Zambia rely on imported second hand clothing. The wardrobes of many families in Zambia have only used clothing. A survey conducted in US states that approximately 15% of the discarded clothing is given for resale, and around 12-15% of the Americans shop for their clothing at the resale stores.

Below are listed some of the fashion mistakes that are performed by most of the fashion loving people and the possible solution for the mistakes done by them :

1. People Rely Very Much Heavily On The Fashion Media :

They buy all the fashion magazines religiously, watch awards shows, read the paper and keep up with all the online sources. No you may be thinking that how this can be a mistake. The answer to the confusion is as under :

Answer : By relying too heavily on the media to rule your wardrobe, you run the risk of being a fashion victim.

Remember: most magazines and TV programs about fashion produce an “aspirational” effect. They present you with fabulous clothes you’ll want to buy on fabulous models you’ll want to look like.

The problem is that :

(i) you probably can’t afford any of the clothes they show and

(ii) you’re never going to look like a supermodel or a celebrity.

Solution: Better ways to develop style

2. Most Of The Fashion Lovers Buy The Clothes Blindly, Even If They Are Not Fitting To Them Perfectly.

You may already know that you should NEVER buy something too small, thinking you’ll lose weight — even if it is the most running product in the market at a lower cost.

But do they know that little details like the length of your jacket sleeves or the place your pants them rest can make or break an outfit?

The best option is that to get perfect fit is to have a tailor alter the garment.

Solution: How your clothes should really fit

3. Just Mish-Mashing A Wardrobe By Buying Odds And Ends.

Purchasing odds and ends on sale may seem to make sense. After all, the easy availability of off-price merchandise has lulled us into thinking that minor purchases won’t blow our wardrobe concept or budget.

Actually, it’s the little things that kill your wardrobe. Without a plan, you can end up with tons of clothes and nothing to wear. But it’s never to late to change your habits

Solution: Always have something to wear

4. Getting stuck in a style rut.

Sticking with classics has been conventional style wisdom for ages, and for women with full lives and limited resources this is still a sure way to investment dressing.

The problem is that as we grow older, we sometimes become a little too comfortable wearing our old standbys

Sometimes all it takes is tweaking the basics that you look already own to fabulous.

Solution: How to keep your look up-to-date

5. Often choosing the wrong undergarments.

Celebrities get stuffed and tucked into heavy-duty body trimmers, push-up bras, even sticky tape to look good in designer dresses for the red carpet.

Just think what the right bra or support-top pantyhose could do for us mere mortals.

In addition to gravity-defying bras and body slimmer’s that eliminate lumps and bumps, there are other tricks of the trade.

Solution: Getting it right underneath

Lingerie And Lingerie's Only - A Global Report (Part VI - US)

Women are unique in every way, and this uniqueness is also represented in the intimate apparels they wear. The delicate secrecy of feeling that one is secretly wearing something pretty underneath gives every woman a confidence, boosts her self-esteem, and makes her feel prettier and far more desirable. Customers do not need as many garments as they buy, and this is more visible in women's lingerie. They buy intimate wears just because, it looks beautiful, and fits under certain apparels. Western wears along with lingerie will rise as one of the fastest growing segment in US, and organized players are expected to constitute 40% of the intimate apparels market by 2009.

Ultimate Accessories – Industry Observation Of American Lingerie’s

During the past 25 years, lingerie underwent a metamorphosis and has blossomed into a huge money making segment of apparels. Since the removal of quotas in 2005, the lingerie industry in US is undergoing a rapid transformation. US apparel market is estimated to be around $9.6billion during 2007. Women's apparel market in US is expected to grow at the rate of 1.9% every year during 2004-2009. Retailers are now recognizing that lingerie market gives higher profits, and are launching new lingerie products or giving a new make over to their existing products. Lingerie vendors now, give more preference on making partnership with specialty stores than with department stores because the latter cannot store all the products of one brand.

On average, American women spend $100 on the purchase of intimate apparels; annually. Almost 65% of the global lingerie is sold to Western Europe and North America. Success of undergarments can be judged by the growth of domestic lingerie market. A New York based market research firm concludes that US retailers sell over $10.5 billion USD worth of lingerie's annually. Apart from its domestic consumption and exports, the country also imports intimate wears. Majority of the intimate apparel imports into US is from China. Due to this, the domestic retailers face a decrease in their profit margins due to the competition of cheap textile imports from China.

Discreet Brands In The US Market
