Will extreme color overpower extreme poverty?

It’s no surprise that Brazil’s favelas, or slums, can be bleak places to live. In one neighborhood, a sign on a wall ridden with bullet holes reads, ‘Attention neighbors. In days of war, avoid leaving the house. Thank you, Comando Vermelho.’ But two Dutch artists are hoping to give neighborhood residents something to smile about.

Even tattoo shops across the metro don’t know what would propel someone to do something like this, and they say it’s unneeded legislation. Lawmakers argue that it’s a public health issue.

NightWave:  Sleep Assistant 

If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, there’s a good chance it’s because you’re stressed about something, and are unable to get into a relaxed state.

The luminance of the light rises and falls, and the idea is that you’re supposed to lay in bed with your eyes open and synchronize your breathing with the light. Over time the rising and falling will become slower and slower, which is supposed to relax your body to the point where you’ll drift off to sleep.

Eye Tattoos

Eye Tattoo

If you think tattoos are so over, you’ve got another think coming. The latest in permanent ink? Tats on your eyeball. That’s right – a sharp stick in the eye.

When doctors do it, it’s called corneal tattooing; but when perfectly healthy folks looking for new horizons in tattooing, piercing, scarring, etc., do it, it’s nuts.
