Tattoos and Piercings / Re: First Time Getting Inked

Did you get it done, Lew?


Yes, I got the outline done on June 9th.  I'm going back this Friday (June 30th) to get color added and then it should be complete.  I'll post pictures once the redness subsides.  Also, I'm thinking about another piercing, so I may get that done on Friday as well.

How To Protect Your Bald Head / Re: Bandana in the sun?

Do not omit the sunscreen, even with the bandanna.  Personally, I do not care for wearing caps or bandannas, and I just use good sunscreen.

Those look really cool - one of them may be a good investment as I'm doing a lot of cycling too!

Tallow + Steel "Maya"
Wolf Whiskers | Raptor | Black Wolf
Ever-Ready SE | Gem PTFE (1)

Since I've commented extensively as to how pleased I am with Tallow + Steel's new soap formula, I'll just briefly convey my thoughts on Maya's fragrance.

Cocoa and coffee arrive at the same time, but they fall short of dominating the fragrance which is soon mitigated by the rich, spicy notes presumably offered up by the allspice.  These intermingle with the cocoa and coffee on an almost sinister scale.  By themselves, these notes wouldn't typically be described as dark, but the accord is indeed dark but clean and crisp. There is zero cooling effect, but it smells like there should be.  A gentle minty metallic fragrance is detected.  I was initially inclined to call it anise, but it doesn't quite make that leap.  The sharp lime along with a bitter citrus keep the fragrance from being sweet.  As the shave progresses, the coffee becomes more discrete giving way to cocoa. I do note a hint of tobacco, but it's quite subtle and intermittent.

The splash starts like most Tallow + Steel splashes with a transient creaminess that I assume is from the base ingredients.  With the exception of the still light tobacco, the other notes of coffee, cocoa, and cardamom are more clearly defined with equal showing from whatever the effervescent fragrance is.  The drydown reveals even more of the lime and bitter orange.  This fragrance seems to last longer than the other new Tallow + Steel splashes I've used thus far (Himalaya and Morocco), still detectable 6 hours out.

For me, Maya pretty much fills the void left by Dark's departure. While it's hardly the same fragrance, it fits in that category.

Really handsome guy!   You look so good like that that I would advise you to stay sly even if you have a full head of hair!

I use a matte moisturiser

cant rally say how effective it is, but my head only seems to get shiny if im either too warm (obviously) or whilst working out...which again same reason really

I think  a big mistake is be careful you dont dry out your scalp to much, trying to get rid of the oil etc. As more often than not when your skin gets to dry....that actually promotes oil production, so best to keep it moisturised

and I honestly can't see what you're referring to with noticeable ridges / bumps

as already said, we all have those sort of bumps / ridges.  If you see a perfect looking bald head than it's either a very very lucky person or its simply a good angle combined with air brushing / editting if it happens to be some celeb

I always wear a bandanna under my bike helmet when riding, I don't need to get some funky tan lines from the vents in the helmet! I either go for a plain one or wild like smiley faces.  If this is for sports and you perspire a lot look up halo headband (they do bandannas and skull caps too) they have a silicone band across the front to divert perspiration from your face
