Love is helping to extricate a tiny needle from your partner’s pus-filled toe-pimple…

A tattoo loving Swede who forgot about a needle which had been travelling around his body since 1974 has finally seen it again, after it burst out through his big toe.

Ulf Bergström, 63, from Måla in northern Sweden said the needle entered his arm forty years ago when he was a keen amateur tattooist.

“So I put the needle in my arm and then hey presto it disappeared,” he told the Norran newspaper.

Bergström sought medical help and even got an x-ray which revealed nothing. The 17mm needle had vanished at least for a few decades.

Matt Bauer says:

I’ve been teaching myself to tattoo since March 2012. I tattooed this on my outside left bicep. Many people get tattoos in order to commemorate an event, remind them of someone special or because they simply look cool. My motivations behind getting the Disinfo logo tattooed are of talisman/sigil magic, quantum entanglement, tribute and well… because it looks cool.

To me, Disinfo questions the questions of its own questions. Having read countless articles and books by people or organizations over the years who claim to have “true” truth and knowledge, it seems if they aren’t questioning themselves then they’re no different than the ideas they condemn. So, thank you Disinfo!

BBC News reports:

An “electronic tattoo” could herald a revolution in the way patients are monitored and provide a breakthrough in computer gaming, say US scientists.

They used the device, which is thinner than a human hair, to monitor the heart and brain, according to a study in the journal Science.

The sensor attaches to human skin just like a temporary tattoo and can move, wrinkle and stretch without breaking.

Researchers hope it could replace bulky equipment currently used in hospitals.

A mass of cables, wires, gel-coated sticky pads and monitors are currently needed to keep track of a patient’s vital signs.
