    Tattoos and TENS. Yes or No?

    Tattoos date back to Neolithic times and have great cultural significance however in recent times they have become popular worldwide with several estimates stating that 36% of adults under 40 and 10% of the wider western world population have at least one tattoo.

    Electrodes couple to a machines leads via 'male' and 'female' connections. The male connection is a pin and the female connection is recessed. The male fits into the female ( wonder where that came from?)
