Each pattern is crafted by Mr Beck alone in the skiing town of Les Arcs, in the French Alps, where he lives during winter.
And he uses an orienteering compass to create the perfect geometric designs.

Mr Beck, an orienteer leader, has created hundreds of the artworks after ploughing his first at Christmas in 2004.
He uses what he describes as a 'kind of reverse orienteering' to plot his intricate paths before walking along the route in a pair of snowshoes.

Scarification Tattoos

July 11th 2011 02:24
body scarification

Scarifying involves scratching, etching, or superficially cutting designs, pictures, or words into the skin as a permanent body modification.
In the process of body scarification, scars are formed by cutting or branding the skin.

Scarification is usually more visible on darker skinned people than tattoos. Endorphins can be released in the scarification process that can induce a euphoric state. There are also aesthetic, religious, and social reasons for scarification. Additionally, although infection may be a risk with most forms of scarification, they do not involve the usage of tattoo ink.

Scarification produces harm and trauma to the skin; thus it is considered by many to be not safe. Infection is a concern. Not only do the materials for inducing the wounds need to be sanitary, but the wound needs to be kept clean, using antibacterial solutions or soaps often, and having good hygiene in general. It is not uncommon, especially if the wound is being irritated, for a local infection to develop around the wound. The scarification worker needs to have detailed knowledge of the anatomy of human skin, in order to prevent tools cutting too deep, burning too hot, or burning for too long. Scarification is not nearly as popular as tattooing, so it is harder to find workers experienced in scarification. Precautions are made for brandings, such as wearing masks, because it is possible for diseases to be passed from the skin into the air when the skin is burning, that can lead to death from the tool they use.

Vintage Men's Magazines

June 11th 2010 02:47
Back in the 1950s, the magazine of choice for men was the adventure magazine.
The pages of these magazines were generally filled with “true” (typically fictionalized or embellished) stories of war, survival, crime, safari, and the Old West. A favourite theme was the showdown between man and wild flesh-eating beasts and critters or men rescuing women from the torture of savage natives or cruel enemy armies.
The showpiece of these magazines was definitely the front covers
