My entire life I was curious about tattoos and thought it would be cool to have one. I went through various phases of what I wanted and where I would get it, but I never thought I’d actually do it. Late last year I decided that I wanted to get a scarab beetle, which is meaningful to me because of its artistic and symbolic value.
The past year felt like I was in some kind of rut; I was never completely happy and felt like something was missing, several things actually. This year I want to change everything I haven’t been content with and be proactive and get to the point where I want to be at. This tattoo is the beginning of that.
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.
It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.
Yo I better not find out this isn’t true on Snopes.
Oh shit I just checked Snopes and it isn’t there so I guess it’s true!
