You may be fascinated by the idea of getting your skin painted to flaunt it! Moreover when permanent tattoos are a strong style statement and everyone is going for the kill, why should you be left behind? Be careful! Although, show-off may be the most pressing reason you would go to get yourself a permanent tattoo done, the harms are many and diverse. Permanent tattoos are basically those designs that are impressed upon our skin with a pointed needle-like machine that injects coloured inks onto the skin, and are there to stay. The harms associated with permanent tattoos are many. They could range from reaction from tattoo colours to bleeding skin. Once the tattoos are made, even then the pain does not end.

MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS
Read the passage given below and answer the questions by choosing the correct option.
Throughout history there has always been people who can make other people laugh. Early clowns, from the stupidus of ancient Rome to the court jester, often both offended and delighted listeners with their comments and songs. They were not silent performers as seen in today‟s circus rings. They lost their voices when the large dimensions of three-ring circuses made it impossible for the audience to hear them.
There are many different categories of circus clowns. Walk-around clowns use an animal or a prop as a part of their routine. A carpet clown performs while mingling with the audience. Then there are acrobatic clowns, riding clowns, juggling clowns etc. Everything a clown does looks easy, but its not. Making people laugh can be hard work.
Clown alley- from the old ringmaster‟s call, “Clowns, allez” (French for „go‟) - is the name of the dressing area where the clowns put on their make-up and costumes.
Clowns are also white face, auguste and character. The neat white face is usually a strict clown who sets up the punch line for the joke with a partner who is typically an auguste (German nickname for someone who is clumsy). The auguste wears an oversized suit or baggy pants and big shoes. Character clowns perform as different personalities. The most famous character clown is the tramp. Tramps wear costumes that are torn and shabby.
Entertainers have been wearing make-up since ancient times. In the early days, the face was sometimes whitened with flour to emphasize large, dark eyes and bright red lips so everyone in the audience could see such exaggerated facial expression. Legend has it that a French clown who was a baker by profession was the first to perform with his face white from his job.
A close up look at a clown‟s face frightens some people because the eyebrows aren‟t drawn where they naturally grow, lips are lost in a sea of red, and the hairline is often gone completely. But the face is meant to be seen fifty feet above the ring, and from this distance every feature looks right. It is also considered bad taste for a clown to appear in public partially out of costume, or for a clown to do „normal‟ things, like eating lunch while in character.
