How Safe Are Body Piercings and Why Get Them?

With the rise of antibiotic resistant diseases, such as Hepatitis C, the blame is being placed on unsafe tools used for body piercing and tattoos. Those who work in the industry are mainly unregulated with no health checks conducted or, if they are, they are so random that one can easily slip through unnoticed. In Australia the guide lines are that the customer should make sure the place of business looks clean as well as the artists.

Wow! How does that work when it comes to hidden germs and microbes? People get body piercings to all parts of their body, including their genitals, nipples, and tongue. One would surely need properly autoclaved and germ free tools to carry out any procedure that invades the skin. Yes, body piercing is an operation and mostly done without surgical guidelines.

In New South Wales laws require people under the age of 16 years to have written parental consent before getting such work done on their bodies. Just how clever is a teenager at deciding on whether a premise is clean and if the instruments used are sterile?

The safety lines are so vague that young people would not be interested in them unless they are of a higher intelligence. In the latter case they probably would not be seen dead near such a place. The judgment for most would be their friends who have had procedures done there and have survived.

The hidden side-effects of body piercing and tattoos are often not realised for some time. They can lead to more than infections as many suffer horrendous psychological problems when the art they thought they were getting turns out not to be the same. Things can go wrong and some suffer from infections that can take a long time to heal.

While body piercing of genitals and nipples apparently increases sensations during stimulation the normal body is capable of performing in this way without it. If something is amiss in that area then a doctor might be the best person to consult and not someone in a shop desirous of taking your money.

The bottom line is that no body piercing procedure is safe and anyone with a functioning brain should consider it well before subjecting themselves to it. Why risk the alternative. Hepatitis C and other diseases, such as Aids, are killers. Would you hold a loaded gun to your head and pull the trigger? That is about what it amounts to if you are unlucky enough to choose the wrong operator.

5 Factors to Consider When Starting a Home Based Business

More and more people are starting to run a home based business for a wide range of reasons. A major positive of this type of work environment is the ability to avoid the cost of rent for a separate office space or having to spend several hours at the start and end of the day commuting to and from a traditional office. However, there are many different things that need to be considered before starting up a home based business.

Let’s take a look at five of the major points related to starting your home based business:

Compliance

A basic requirement is to conduct a little research to learn the laws, rules and regulations that apply to setting up the home based business. The regulations will differ with the different industries and certain to be stricter for a business involved in food preparation compared to web design or similar office based activities. The standard requirements include issues related to safety, licensing and registration. It is essential to check the rules specific to your business industry to avoid any problems with the authorities in the future.

Scope

Many businesses will begin as a small venture and slowly expand over time when they start to see increased brand exposure, more clients, and more money to invest. When first planning the home based business, it is worth putting together a detailed business plan that outlines the future growth of the business, and details how to expand your venture and the time-frame for the different stages of growth. Also, the particular service or product offered is certain to have a major influence on the future scope and success of a business.

Finances

The type of home based business will determine the amount of capital needed to get up and running. This type of business does have the advantage of cutting out the cost of renting or leasing a property because you intend to use your home. However, it is still necessary to have sufficient funds to cover all other business expenses. Related costs may include professional services like accountants, office equipment, production supplies, inventory, licensing and marketing.

Storage space

Any home based business involved in selling physical products is certain to need a decent amount of storage space for not only holding the actual inventory, but also space to prepare and pack the items before shipping.

Marketing

A well planned marketing strategy is essential to see a business succeed. With no physical presence, such as a storefront to bring in the customers, you must look at the most effective options to market your brand and business. There are plenty of marketing techniques that can be used. It is simply a case of finding the most effective ones for your business, and using those that are affordable.

How I am benefiting from working at home

First I am saving money on gas every week! And although the price of gas has gone down, I am taking that money that I saved, and putting it towards investing in my business. I choose my own hours to work and by working in blocks of time, I can manage to get many things accomplished in an allotted amount of time, and also take breaks and a walk or do some yoga stretches in between.

Eating a healthy meal through the day is important to me being vegan, and health conscious of what I am feeding my body as well as my mind. I can eat at leisure setting a block of time, just for eating as well as for breaks and I still get everything accomplished in an efficient and timely manner.
