The latest YouTube sensation making the viral video rounds this week is Maria Marie Del Rosario who received an anal tattoo on camera. The vid received over 3 million views in three days.
The 22-year-old whose nickname is deuce deuces recently debuted her personal "art work" at the annual Florida Tattoo expo where for obvious reasons she was a star attraction.
The inking was inspired by a friend named Vince who later became the aspiring model's lover.
Apparently he assisted the tattoo artist by spreading the ink receiver's hips while the tattoo was given to her.
However their love was doomed when Vince decided that Del Rosario was not marriage material.
Then Del Rosario met her next lover Rockwood and decided that he deserved a tattoo honoring their love so she had his name tattooed over Vince's because Rockwood did not like seeing Vince's name during their intimate encounters.
Yup, the tattoo was his birthday present.
Alas, the doomed lovers are not currently together as Rockwood is currently incarcerated for stealing.
Unlike the ways of the first aboriginal tribes which first incorporated tattoos made with organic compounds, the ink contained in modern tattoos often contain a "soup" of metallic salts and plastics suspended in a carrier solution for consistency during application.
The European Commission's report on risk associated with tattooing note that 40% of the colorants used in the ink trade are not approved for use on the skin and just under 20% contain aromatic amine which is carcinogenic.
In the USA the FDA currently has no regulations for tattoo ink, but does still monitor some chemicals used for cosmetic use on skin.
