Re: The MRI and Looping: For Ambient & Experimental Music?

I'm quite sure that no one has said that tattoo's explode, but they do 
sometimes get uncomfortably hot, which is why they pack the area with 
ice.  Of course all hospital policy and procedures are driven by libel 
issues ie: if there is a slight chance, maybe 1 in a 1000 that someone 
recieve a burn from a tattoo getting hot while receiving a MRI; that 
might decide to sue the hospital for not taking enough precautions to 
prevent that burn from happening or advising a person that it could happen.
To tie that into what we do..... one of the techs that got my last 
recording said that he enjoyed it because it was sooo relaxing, that 
perhaps I should have a warning label  ...... Do not listen to this while 
driving ........    Somehow, I'm not sure if I want to take that as a
