We all know that getting a tattoo requires some extra energy - in order to keep their blood sugar in balance while they make endorphins and get through their tattoo, most people eat snacks before or during the tattoo session.
Here are some of our favorite snacks while getting tattooed, and some of the best snacks we have seen clients bring in to get them through the session.
Soda - sodas have lots of sugar and are integrated into your blood stream fairly quickly, so you feel the beneficial effects faster.
Gum - when all else fails, a stick of gum can slightly perk you up and at the least give you something else to do besides sit and wait for your tattoo to be finished. It also keeps your breath minty fresh - bonus!
Snickers bars or Dairy Milk - Candy bars feel like a mini-meal and give you the sugar you need to get through the most demanding times in your tattoo session. After having one, you should feel perked up and ready to make it to the end!
Orange juice - another healthy alternative to the sugary snacks, OJ packs natural sugars that are easier to digest and break down. You will be less likely to experience a crash after your high if you pick orange juice to drink as your sugar source.
The ancient Vedas (ancient Hindu texts which are around 3500 years old) of the Indian sub-continent also make references to goddess Lakshmi’s nose piercings. However, most believe that the modern day practice of body piercing was brought to India by the 16th century Mogul emperor’s of the Middle East. Tongue piercings were practiced among the ancient Mayans and the Aztecs of Central America. They pierced their tongue in order to draw blood that would enable them to communicate with their gods. Septum piercing is another common practice among the primitive cultures of our world. In fact, septum piercings are more commonly seen than even nose piercings. Some stretch these piercings and insert large pieces of jewellery such as feathers, pig’s tusks, and pieces of bone or wood.
Other types of body piercings such as nipple and genital piercings were also found in several ancient cultures. Some did it to enhance their sexual experience, like those of the Gupta Empire of today’s India, while some other cultures did it for just the opposite reason – to diminish their sexual activity. Navel piercings on the other hand, seem to be a very modern innovation. Although some may argue that the ancient Egyptians practiced naval piercing, there is very little proof of that claim.
