Ed Hardy – From Tattoo Artist To Fashion Brand

C14

Before breaking into the fashion world, Don Ed Hardy was a tattoo artist from Southern California. He was born in 1945 and graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In 1973, he had the opportunity to study Japanese tattoo design under Horihide, a master of classical Japanese tattoo. Don Ed Hardy’s tattoos are one-of-a-kind and recognised around the world.

He and his wife have published a series of books about alternative art, under the label of Hardy Marks Publications. Hardy’s publishing career began with his five-part series “Tattootime.” He now has over 25 publications to his name, including many catalogs of his work.

Although Hardy no longer tattoos, he still oversees the work done at his studio, Tattoo City in San Francisco. He continues to concentrate on other art forms, including printmaking, painting and drawing, using his distinctive style.

In 2002, Hardy made the move into the world of fashion, licensing Ku USA to begin production of clothing using his artwork and style. Saks noticed the colorful and unique designs and began to distribute the clothing. Hardy formed an LLC with Ku USA, called Hardy Life.

The Ed Hardy clothing line was later licensed to Christian Audigier in 2004, following a chance meeting. Celebrities quickly picked up on the new fashion line and a new trend was born: tattoo fashion. Ed Hardy stores were opened in fashion districts, including New York, Los Angeles and Dubai. Devotees of the brand consider it more of a lifestyle celebrating tattoo art, rather than simply clothing to wear.

An Ed Hardy line is also available for kids. The line features clothing ranging from baby sizes all the way up to clothing for teens, available up to size 16. Items available include designer T-shirts, hoodies, dresses, jeans and even school supplies featuring tattoo artwork.

A line of professional styling tools marketed under the Ed Hardy name was introduced in 2010. The tools, all featuring the Ed Hardy name and artwork, include items like styling irons, blow dryers and hair accessories.

The Christian Audigier fragrance line first introduced Ed Hardy fragrances in 2008. The first offerings were Ed Hardy for women and Ed Hardy for men. The feminine version brings to life the vibrant tattoo art. The bright fruity scents of mango, strawberries and grapefruit are instant attention grabbers, the fragrant representation of the blazing colors in the artwork. Ed Hardy for men is woody and aromatic, with mandarin orange, bergamot and sage at the top, a hint of mint and a deep base of amber and musk.

These fragrances were followed by other in the series, including Hearts and Daggers, Love and Luck, Born Wild and Villain. Most of the fragrances in the Ed Hardy collection are available in both men’s and women’s versions.

Peptide Cell Therapy What Exactly Is It

What is peptide cell therapy? You may have heard the term but weren’t sure what it refers to. In order to understand this, one must first try to understand what a peptide is. A peptide can be defined as a molecule which is created by combining two or more amino acids. When there are more than fifty of these molecules than the result is said to be a protein, but if it is less then the proper term to use for it is a peptide.

Synthetic peptides are applicable for a wide range of purposes. The reason why peptide cell therapy works is because peptides can easily penetrate and dissolve in the human body. What’s more, you do not run the risk of your body rejecting peptides or experience any disorders caused by such therapy. Peptides can be used for treating a wide range of diseases and disorders such as dementia, diabetic foot, leukemia, cirrhosis, aging, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, kidney failure, and osteoporosis.

So why is peptide cell therapy so useful and effective and why do so many people swear by this therapy? The reason behind this is the nature of peptides. Unlike various other synthetic drugs, peptides do not change the rhythm of the biological processes happening in our bodies. The drugs that are made from peptides are quite good in the sense that they are organ specific. Therefore they will act directly on the organ that is targeted. What’s more, under no circumstances can this kind of therapy harm your body because they will only act to the extent where they can be accepted by the body!

Apart from aiding in cell therapy, peptides can also be used for diagnostic purposes since they can change color under certain circumstances. An example of the diagnostic purpose in which peptides are put to use would be how the chromogenic peptide substrate can be used for the purpose of detecting the absence, presence, or changes in the blood levels of enzymes which control our blood clotting ability and blood pressure. Peptides are also used for developing vaccines, hormones and immunogens.

If you take a look at some of the peptide drugs, you will find that these are either made from altered natural peptides or they are made from the peptides that are naturally existing in the body. Did you know that peptides can be prescribed to those patients whose body cannot produce enough peptides of their own? Yes, in such a scenario, the peptides that are naturally occurring would be prescribed to them because these are biologically active.

As you can see, a peptide is a very useful kind of molecule and it certainly has a lot to offer us. And that is why such molecules are used for the purpose of cell therapy.

Skin Care – How To Do Natural Skin Care

ent

Majority of the people are concerned about their skin during winters. However, many resort to using artificial creams which may not have the desired effect of removing dryness from the skin and making it radiant. Here are a few tips to take care of the skin naturally, without any side effects of the procedures or materials used.

Regular exercise is the first and foremost step in taking care of the skin naturally. This is because regular exercise leads to a healthy body which boasts of a strong immune system within. As a result, the immune defensive mechanism is more effective and efficient at cleansing the body of dead cells and substituting it with newly generated fresh ones. Hence, the skin is cleansed of dead cells from every part of the body causing it to look glowing and radiant.
Drinking about two gallons or roughly eight to ten glasses of water a day have the same effect as water is the source of every living organism and it has a refreshing effect.

The quality of diet intake is equally important. The food eaten should be hygienic so that it does not disturb the regular body function and add up to it instead of taking away from it by way of harmful bacteria that require wastage of useful bacteria within the body to fight with it, many of which expire during the process.

Also, it is especially important to emphasize the temperature of food intake when focusing on the right diet. Use of too much of oiled and hot food items disturbs the skin composition with small pimples sprouting out on the skin especially the face.

Practising yoga can have an effect on the body such that it relaxes it out and does away with unwanted heat inside the body, thereby improving on the daily functioning of the body and making it healthier.

One additional thing you can do is to use natural skin care products like Murad and Colorescience which are proven to be healthy and helpful.

Picking Cosmetics For Black Skin

10a12140-2c49-44b1-adc0-7ab0595a57f5-2560x1537

There was a time when it was really difficult, some say even impossible, to find cosmetics for black skin tones. The cosmetic companies neglected a huge market of women who were looking for suitable products and were very willing to pay good money. Happily things have changed and a lot of the cosmetic giants have brought out a range of makeup specifically aimed at women of color. But how do you know what is suitable for your skin tone?

Picking A Foundation
Picking the correct tone of foundation is very important because this gives you a blank canvas to work on. It must blend with your natural skin tone and along your neckline so that it looks completely natural. No-one should be able to tell that you are wearing foundation. It should make your skin look flawless and not stand out like a geisha.

Picking A Blusher
Women with dark skin should always go for bold colors like dark red, brown, burgundy. This will compliment your skin completely. Apply your color with light strokes along your cheek bone. For women with a lighter complexion, go with colors with a pink hue. The blusher should represent what your cheeks would look like if you were flushed or indeed blushing.

Picking Eye Pencils and Eye Shadows
Use an eye pencil to emphasis the size of your eyes. For darker skinned women, always use black and for women with a lighter complexion, choose dark browns as black may end up looking too harsh and heavy.

There is an extensive range of eye shadows available and you have the option of choosing different colors that will be suitable for different occasions. Go for bold colors for night time wear such as golds, bronze, burgundies and greens. These will really make the eyes pop. For day time wear, choose different shades of brown and burgundies.

Picking A Lipstick
Try and choose a color that will compliment the choices you made for your eye shadow and blusher. You want to end up with a balanced look. If you prefer, you could always opt for lip gloss which will accentuate the natural color of your lips.

So those are a few pointers to choosing the right type of cosmetics for black skin. Go out and try different combinations until you are happy with your final look.

A Lifestyle Without Boundaries

C15

Life is for living, yet for so many, it means being tied down to a job, stuck in one place, one holiday per year if you’re lucky, and then only for a few weeks. And to save money you visit relatives so you can save on accommodation! Sound familiar. We’ve all done it.

Well it’s time to get out of the boring, dull and monotonous routine and start living. Time to break through the barriers that hold you back. Time to start putting your dreams into action and your goals into reality!

And here’s how to make it happen.

Rule number one – Get Started!

It’s no good talking about it, thinking about it, wishing for it or waiting for someone else to make it happen. If you want it all, you have to do it all, simple as that.

Stop comparing someone else’s life with your own, and wishing yours was better. Make it better. That’s what a lifestyle without boundaries is all about. And anyone can do it, you just have to get started.

Doing the same thing the same way, year in year out will not get you the results you want. You need change. You need a different direction, and you need action.

As the saying goes “Actions speak louder than words”. And how true it is. Talking about a better life won’t get you one, but putting a plan into action will.

Rule number 2 – Keep At It.

So many people make the decision to change, stick at it for a month or maybe even a year, but as soon as it gets too hard they give up. If you want it all, if you want a lifestyle without boundaries, you can not be a quitter. Quitting is not an option, and you must be prepared to take the word quit out of your vocabulary if you are ever going to be successful and achieve your goals.

Finally rule number 3 – Don’t Let Others Drag You Back.

The road to where you want to go won’t be a smooth one, let’s be practical. There will be bumps, twists and turns. But you must stay on the track if you want to finish the journey. So be prepared, there will be plenty of people trying to pull you back. They will offer all sorts of advice, they will tell you things like “you can’t do that” or “it will never work”. Just remember, the ones who tell you, you can’t, are the ones who don’t do it themselves! And they have no business interrupting those of us who are.

To live a lifestyle without boundaries, to have freedom, time and money to really enjoy life, to provide for your family is there for anyone who makes the decision to do it. And with the persistence to see it through you will enjoy a lifestyle far beyond your dreams.
