Yes its a terrible thing to deal with especially when you like to use your hands but this product seems to help.

I don't have a tattoo but I actually find them very attractive. I think a guy with a full sleeve is kinda fascinating. Maybe it's the bad boy thing? My 2 oldest sons each have one tattoo that they got after they left home. It didn't bother me when they told me. My father was in the Navy for 21 years and had the tattoos to prove it! He died 3 years ago and at the age of 76, some of those tattoos were 58 years old but they didn't look bad or distorted. They were definitely faded, though.

I wouldn't know about 55 expat--I won't be there for a looooooong time! LOL Okay, 5 more years, which should be here by next week as fast as time has been flying by the last few years!

Carpal Tunnel--yuck. My hands are asleep most of the time it seems, and often when I pick things up with my left hand (even something small like a paper clip) my hand (mainly through my middle finger and middle of my hand) "twangs." That is the only way I can describe it. That is a horrible feeling--kind of like being shocked with electricity.

To semi-tie this back in with the original topic, I guess no one would want me to give them a tattoo! Along with having absolutely no artistic talent, how would you like me to handle the needles with my hands asleep?! Ouch!
