A printing press is a device for evenly printing ink on to a print medium such as paper or cloth. The device applies pressure to a print medium that rests on an inked surface made of movable type, thereby transferring the ink. Typically used for texts, the invention and spread of the printing press are widely regarded as among the most influential events in the second millennium] revolutionizing the way people conceive and describe the world they live in, and ushering in the period of modernity. By the late 1930s or early 1940s, printing presses had increased substantially in efficiency: a model by Platen Printing Press was capable of performing 2,500 to 3,000 impressions per hour.

The PC has been the prime platform for many roleplaying games through the years. One of the reasons for that, at least in more recent days, has been the emergence of talented modders that make roleplaying games on PC so much better an experience than their console port counterparts. But many of the big RPG series that are popular today across all platforms started out on the PC back in the 90s originally. Here we take a look at the creme of the creme of those games.

Tattoo inks are available in a range of colors that can be thinned or mixed together to produce other colors and shades. Most professional tattoo artists purchase inks pre-made, while some tattooers mix their own using a dry pigment and a carrier. Manufacturers are not required to reveal their ingredients or conduct trials, and recipes may be proprietary. Professional inks may be made from iron oxides, metal salts, plastics. Heavy metals used for colors include mercury (for the color red); lead (yellow, green, white); cadmium (red, orange, yellow); nickel (black); zinc (yellow, white); chromium (green); cobalt (blue); aluminium (green, violet); titanium (white); copper (blue, green); iron (brown, black); and barium (white). Tattoo ink manufacturers typically blend the heavy metal pigments and/or use lightening agents (such as lead or titanium) to reduce production costs.
