TattooApparel.com National Fashion Model Search Contest for Men and Women,

TattooApparel.com and the Perpetual Vogue Store are known for working with aspiring models in the Southern California area. We receive many email requests from customers, fans and aspiring models in other parts of the Country asking if they can model for us. This is not normally feasible as we prefer to shoot at our own location and at other local area locations using our favorite local photographers. We decided to have this National Model Search Contest in order to give any legal resident of the United States who is over the age of 21 who has not modeled for us in the past the opportunity to win a spot modeling for us at a professional photo shoot in January 2011.

Lady Gaga performing at Gröna Lund, Stockholm,...Image via Wikipedia

Looking for a star image to try on? Check out Gogglesand Glasses' line of Lady GaGa glasses

Her success is undeniable.

There is no one quite like her.

She has an incredible amount of nerve, courage and determination.

She is talented and creative.

She's distinctly different.

Born "Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta", one story of how she came about with the stage name of Lady GaGa is this:
Music producer Rob Fusari who helped her write some of her earlier songs, texted her one day, intending on addressing her as "Radio Gaga" (Fusari had a habit of launching into Queen's "Radio Gaga" when Lady G arrived at the studio, it had become "her entrance song"). As "Radio Gaga" was typed into the text somehow the phone did an autocorrect, and 'radio' was changed to 'lady'. She liked it and from then on Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta became "Lady GaGa".

Making Sunglass History

Undeniably, one of the most popular pairs of Aviators ever worn in a movie were those worn by Tom Cruise in the 1986 classic "Top Gun". This summer, Tom dons the Aviators again in the highly-rated action movie, "Knight and Day" with Cameron Diaz.
Cruise in "Knight and Day", pictured above, and Cruise in "Top Gun", below right.

At GogglesandGlasses, Mirror Aviators are our #1 selling sunglass.

Our 3 packs are especially popular and now for the first time offered in this combination - a 3pack of our 50mm Color Revo Classic Gold, Green and Fire Red. "Revo", in sunglass terminology is an innovative lens derived from a technology developed by NASA for satellite portholes: the lens is composed of a multi-layer coating capable of providing the highest protection from UV and IR radiation. Our Revo Mirror Aviator sunglasses are unisex and provide a nostalgic style for men and women both, while holding a modern appeal. (But we haven't seen a shot of Diaz wearing Aviators!)
Aviator sunglasses are a classic accessory that never goes out of style.

UVA, UVB, Gradient and Polarized Lenses ??



There are a number of terms used in the descriptions of our products. “UVA and UVB”, “Super Dark”, “Gradient lenses”, “Mirror coated lenses” – all are features of different products. To upgrade your shopping experience from “casual” to “informed”, we hope this information will help you make knowledgeable choices. (For more about lenses, go to INFO on our HOME page)
UVA & UVB Most everyone knows that ultraviolet light (UV) can damage your skin but we are learning that long-term exposure to UV light increases the risk of cataracts, the clouding of the eye’s lens. Also, it is now believed that UV rays increase the risk of macular degeneration, a chronic disease that affects the central vision.
Higher price doesn’t mean better protection. High-priced sunglasses are most often the result of fashion and a brand name, usually with a good dose of quality in the mix. Inexpensive sunglasses will usually provide 100% UVA & UVB protection and are oftentimes manufactured with the same materials as the more pricey ones. Look for labels, tags and stickers stating the degree of UV protection that should come on the glasses, if there aren’t any, it’s probably wise to choose another pair.
Keep in mind that most people think that they're at risk only when they're outside on a sunny day, but UV light can go right through clouds, so it doesn't matter if the sky is overcast. The sun's rays are strongest between 10 am and 2 pm. Children need protection too. It is believed that over-exposure to the sun that results in a severe sunburn before adulthood creates an increased risk of cancer related skin conditions later in life, consideration that a child’s protection to the sun’s harmful rays should include his/her eyes as well.
Lens Color The darkness or color of a sunglass lens does not indication UV protection, in fact the coating that blocks UV light is clear. The degree of lens darkness has no effect on UV rays. Gradient lenses, (which appear in our Neon Tetra Wayfarers pictured at right) were designed with driving in mind; the top and darker part of the lens is for looking up and or straight ahead while driving and the lighter bottom of the lens is for viewing the dashboard, your gauges and speedometer. Many of our sunglasses feature a gradient lens.
Mirrored Lenses We agree they make you look cool but mirror coated lenses actually limit the amount of light entering your eyes, so you're more comfortable. Mirror coatings (also called flash coatings) are highly reflective coatings applied to the front surface of sunglass, the color of the tinted lens under the coating determines your color perception.
Finally, the age-old question of “How Do Polarized Lenses Work?” we’ll blog about in another post.
