Tattoo industry set to fade?

By Adam Hopkin

Despite being done in a studio that holds a worrying resemblance to a hospital in a 3rd world country, or during a “sick time” in Magaluf, some people will swear by their ink. But whilst their “professionally” done sleeve may be timeless the tattoo industry as a whole is starting to fade.

“Tattoo removal is the largest growth sector in cosmetic procedures, not just in the UK but worldwide,” states Dr Tapan Patel, Medical director of PHI Clinic. This is arguably down to being passed off in that big job interview because you thought the stars behind your ear made you look hard, and according to a 2014 study 71% of employers stated tattoos would be enough to not sire someone. Dr Andrew R Timing of the university of ST Andrews tells the Telegraph that the business of tattoo removal “is largely driven” by “employment considerations”.

However In the UK there is expected to be around 20 million people that have gone under the needle and had at least one tattoo. Brits are booking themselves in for an estimated 1.5 million pieces each year, giving the industry a value of £80 million. This could be due to less of a stigma in the workplace and on the streets around owning some ink.

Writer Jesse Borg tells the Huffinton post that its all just a sign of a more open minded culture in the times we live in, “Getting tattoos is more about fitting in by standing out… There may, and probably will come a time when they are just as taboo as before.”

People are getting sick of rainbow food-are you?

By Hannah Anstee

Well you must have had your head under a blanket if you haven’t noticed the latest ‘Rainbow’ food trend that’s taken social media by storm recently.

At first there were bagels.

 

Then there was trifle.

 

 

Then donuts.

 

Unfortunately things didn’t stop there. Yes, that’s right, that’s rainbow cheese you see.

Rainbow grilled cheese anyone? Rhinebeck bagel getting creative @rbkbagel #Cheesebow #rainbowcheese

But then very quickly the internet got tired of it.

 

And took action.

Are you a rainbow food maker? Is rainbow food here to stay or on it’s way out? What do you think? Let us know by posting your pics and comments on our Twitter feed.

Junkyard golf is a hole in one

By Adam Hopkin

Sometimes the bigger questions in life should not be pondered by the noble philosophers and thinkers of the world but by those who ask, “how can crazy golf be made any more crazy?”

For those forward thinking enough to want an answer to that question, you can safely remover your clever caps now.

Junk yard Golf is the pop up phenomenon in Manchester’s Great Northern Warehouse taking the skill and calibre of the elite sport and plunging it into into a world of cocktail induced missed swings, rave music and enough successful Ebay biddings to build a fort and slide (literally).

Dreamt up by B.EAT STREET, the two course and 18 holes are put together with all manors of weird and wonderful objects found in charity shops and Ebay, in what seems like a Frat parties take on art attack. After a short three week run in late 2015 proved to be incredibly popular the course has made its return with the newer second course Gertrude joining the original course Fred.

The second course doesn’t just bring another 9 holes to the party. Its raises the bar with a UV, neon techno-rave room with special appearance from Darth Vader himself, because who else would DJ this scene. 

For me it checked all of the boxes, slides , climbing frames sharks and even a star wars themed hole ingeniously named “Jabba the putt”. As clever as the pun may be, sinking the ball past that smug bastard after using his face to stop your mini golfing progress was almost as satisfying as it was rage inducing.

Of course after a few drinks professionally putting your way around both of the courses is going to take a couple of hours, and with cocktails being available throughout your mini golf career, the junk yard may hold potential for an amazing pre drinks opportunity. Alcohol will do nothing to help those thinking that the junk yard is a quick and easy course either, the first 9 holes tormented me all the way into triple figures, although how far I will never share.

Top suits under £100

By Vicki Evans

A suit can easily set you back a few hundred pounds but spending that amount for clothing that you may only wear a few times a year may not be worth it.

A suit is an investment but sometimes the mid-range market can be a more feasible option.

All these suits come under £100 and all you need is a shirt and a tie.

The classic grey suit is flattering for every occasion and great for summer formal events.

Topman – £100 for trousers and jacket

Navy blue is a colour that works for most people and is easy to add a little bit of colour in to a otherwise plain suit.

Burton – £79 for trousers and jacket

A black suit is a classic that works for every occasion. All you need is a black suit and you are set for any event.

Marks and Spencers – £99

A younger take on the full black with two buttons and a straight leg makes the classic suit more modern and have a youthful feel to it.
