    Gifts for my wife

    Hey all! First I want to say please excuse any stupid questions or misused terminology here, I’m a web developer and my wife is a tattoo artist. so my wife finished her apprenticeship about 3 months ago and has a good amount of business now. She has a lot of colors in 1 ounce bottles but she wants more so she can experiment a bit. I know she wants Eternal brand ink, but I have no idea what colors to get her and don’t want to have to ask her. Alongside this, she wants a cartridge machine and again I have NO clue which one to get her. I want to get her something nice but I couldn’t tell you what classifies as a good machine for this. any help is super appreciated. Thanks!

    Ink of choice?

    My wife is a beginner tattoo artist who started about 2yrs a go and she recently gave me 2 new tattoos that the ink did not stay in my skin. The ink she is using a friend bought her which I assume isn’t very good quality and I was wondering if ink expires? And if that’s the reason the ink won’t stay in. And also I am aware “illegal” artist aren’t allowed to buy professional equipment but does anyone know of any good ink brands? I am just looking for black and white and I am not afraid of the price. Thank you for help and merry inkmas!
  6. Essentially, hot filling is the process of injecting hot liquid into a container and then inverting, allowing heat to sterilize the container and/or lid. The liquid must be between 194 and 203 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure disinfection and the use of containers that do not change shape at elevated temperatures, such as glass and certain types of plastics, are required. The heat treatment lasts for 15 to 30 seconds, which is sufficient to ensure sterilization. Many modern Juice Processing Plant use this technology to package juice products. This technology can make juices have a longer shelf life. After thermal cycling, the contents are cooled to between 180 and 185 degrees Fahrenheit before being transferred to the final container (in some cases) and sealed. Cooling after transfer was continued for 3 minutes. There are several different containers available for the hot filling process, including glass, cardboard food containers and plastics, although not all types of plastics are suitable. There are several important considerations when properly performing hot filling bottles: Hot fill balance The heat eventually changes the surface it touches, potentially changing the taste, color, and even nutrients and minerals in the product or material. Therefore, a balance must be reached between the temperature and the length of time the container is exposed to heat. Cool immediately after hot filling. Hot fill monitoring Another important factor in hot-fill bottles is the ongoing monitoring process. This includes the temperature of the liquid and the temperature of the container. If the temperature is too low, microbial preparations may be produced, which may pose health and safety risks. Thus, hot fill manufacturing typically includes a recirculation system that maintains production activity with the backup system in place if the container or liquid drops below a preset temperature. Hot filling bottle material Not all packaging materials are suitable for the hot filling process. For example, standard PET bottles change shape or collapse when exposed to high temperatures. Therefore, specific containers known as "heat set" bottles are specifically designed to handle the needs of hot fill processing. These custom containers are heavier in the body and neck to withstand heat. In addition, the cap is heavier. Hot filling bottle contents Not all content is suitable for hot filling, such as low acid drinks and food or beverages containing fiber or pulp. In addition, some materials degrade or deteriorate when exposed to high temperatures. High acid foods suitable for hot filling include products with a pH below 4.6. The acidity level determines the number of spores that survive the sterilization process. Substances with a pH of 4.6 or higher produce multiple spores and are therefore considered unsafe. An acid level below 4.6 will ensure that the bacteria do not grow in the remaining spores. Please note that food or beverages may continue to deteriorate or deteriorate if they are exposed to water or heat in other aspects of the packaging, shipping or storage process. Hot filling cost There are several cost considerations in terms of hot fill processing. First, heavier custom containers are more complex to produce than traditional PET or other materials, and therefore cost more. In addition, the energy required to repeat the heating and cooling cycles can be expensive. This also has an impact on the environment as heat and energy are expanding at a higher rate. Shanghai Jimei Food Machinery Co., Ltd. provides hot filling bottle packaging solutions for Juice Production Line. We take into account the above mentioned factors and other factors to bring high quality hot filling products to effectively save our customers' time. And cost.

    Estimate: How Long Would This Take?

    Depends how detailed you want it, how quick the artist works, how many breaks you want to take etc etc. but you having been tattooed already are obviously in a position to state how long YOU think it would take. Get the artist who is doing it to give you a quote🤔

    Estimate: How Long Would This Take?

    MAJOR TYPOS in that post lol...I meant to say, "Not my first Murakami-inspired tattoo" **Facepalm** 🤣
  9. Hey guys! Newbie here I'm planning to get this back piece done soon (I'm broke at the minute so will have to wait until March-ish - d'oh!). I literally cobbled together this VERY rudimentary design on Photoshop and IT NEEDS WORK FROM A REAL ARTIST. Obviously, teehee!! But, keeping it KIND OF the same, and considering I have a tiny back (4'11", 85lbs) how long do you think this would take to ink? I'm thinking one 4-hour session for the linework, and two or three 4-hour sessions for the color. But that's just a guess. My other tats are all black, so this is my first color 'experience' lol. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, folks! P.S. The quote has to go, as does the weird blob at the nape of the neck, which is actually a Chinese-style cat (would you believe it). P.P.S. Just in case you were wondering, the actual design is inspired my the Random House Vintage 2012 edition cover of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84. One of my favorite books - not my Murakami-inspired tattoo, either

  12. In the past few decades, there has been a growing trend to increase the value of raw materials for agricultural products. This trend has accelerated as the population becomes more urbanized. As the demand for internationally cooked foreign products increases, so does the demand for stable and convenient food. In the context of the globalization of the food industry, the demand for quality juices and juice drinks has expanded significantly. Traditionally, only a small number of fruit and vegetable juices have served this market, as large multinational companies or their affiliates account for most of the domestic and international juice trade. Orange juice, grape juice, pineapple juice, apple juice, tomato juice and mixed juice are already common in developed countries. Small juices, tropical juices and juice products are now attracting new attention. Existing trade and technical literature reflects these trends. There are a large number of publications and an increasing amount of Internet information on all aspects of the juice and juice beverage industry. Juice processing technology ranges from individuals who prepare juice for home consumption to multinational groups that have several interconnected high-volume Juice Processing Plant and juice lines to meet global demand. However, there is much less concern about the small juices, the small-scale or local production of such products, and the specific problems faced by producers who do not share this growth. Anyone considering entering the juice processing industry should understand some general principles. Many aspects of production, post-harvest handling, food safety, quality, unit handling, processing and packaging procedures, and regulatory controls are common to almost all juice products. Then there are a lot of product-specific details, depending on the shape of the individual fruit. Potential capabilities include increasing the value of local produce, providing employment opportunities, and improving the quality, safety, economy and diversity of Juice Production Line. This requires a working understanding of food science and technology. In turn, it needs to focus on the knowledge resources available on a global scale, although the availability of these resources is uneven. A good technical library with the latest texts, complemented by complete journal collections, abstract services and comparable electronic devices, Internet links and online search capabilities, is an expensive business for the wealthiest organizations. Such facilities are still a distant possibility in developing countries. However, equipment and access costs are declining, and information technology advancements have never been as fast as they are now, and will have a global impact.

    Is it peeling again?

    I have a 2 month old tattoo and it appears to be peeling when I look close I can see a bit of ink there and would like to know if this is part of the healing process? Another thing that I saw is that there is a piece of ink out of place. Sorry if I am asking too much but this is my first tattoo and I am pretty anxious at the moment 😕

    Help With A Tattoo Design Idea

    Honestly, when I have a good idea for a common theme, I keep it to myself and charge someone a fair amount of money to tattoo it on them. That being said, though, I'll give you this: cupcakes. When I feel down in the dumps (evil) I like to have a cupcake and then I feel happy (good). So, my chest piece idea would be to have my health insurance bill on one side and a cupcake on the other.
  19. Hello, I'm looking for help on designing my own tattoo for my chest. I've never gotten one before, and when I do I want it to have a special meaning behind it. I was thinking of a struggle between good and evil, with the evil half being depression, anxiety, or another mental type of struggle on the left. Close to the heart to show how on the inside, everybody is struggling with their own demons. As for good, I want it to show the way people appear on the outside. I'm not sure exactly what 'Good' would be, and i'm looking for ideas on how to represent both sides. Any ideas or thoughts would be very helpful and appreciated!

    professional opinion

    I'm Iulia and I'm here to get some professional opinion about my work. Also I would love to exchange some experiences. Here is my latest tattoo timelapse. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAAs1V_5HY4
  22. Unfortunately, that looks like it does because the tattooer hammered it in there. It can be cleaned up with a background color.
  23. I got this piece done last December from a popular and reputable artist in my area. I love it, but I am curious as to whether or not is has aged well. Is this amount of bleeding normal? This is on the side of my ribcage. My only other tattoo is some lettering on my foot, so I am not familiar with larger, colored pieces. I know I can't really do anything about it now, but I'm just curious. Thanks! Imgur link: https://imgur.com/a/A62zKyi

    Font Type

    Hey all - first time poster so apologies if this is a bit of a silly Q. I plan to get a tattoo (approx the size of a small fist) of the word "IF" (in cursive etc.). However, I'm struggling to find a font that doesn't make the "i" look like a '"j". I was wondering if anyone could recommend a few font types. Thanks!
