A bit late but the world book day should be celebrated every day! :)
I came across this one totally by accident but yeah, I shed a few joyful tears, too. There’s no modified people here but the message is clear enough to know we’re included!
Olive Oatman’s story – well-known but always interesting to hear and refresh again.
Why does the Bible prohibit tattoos? It’s been written about and discussed many times but why not again? It sounds pretty reasonable and even respectful to a degree.
Another cool video from BuzzFeed:
but it would be only fair if such videos were also focused on men, wouldn’t it?
Don’t judge others – a ‘dirty biker’s’ response to a harsh but very superficial judgement!
Funnily enough, there is also a story about a FB page called ‘your tattoos make you a horrible mother.’
Satirical in tone, 9 misconceptions about people with tattoos; some nice pictures included.
An interesting read – ‘black ink and the politics of tattoos, race and gender.’
Vegetable tattoos – permament and temporary.
Stretched ears and the usual when and why.
I like starting with the tag ‘modified charity’ as it shows, over and over again, that no matter what the non-tattiied ppl think, the modified people also have big hearts. So here we have Trouble Bound Studio and their fundraiser for the Daffodil Place and a report from the Tattoo Day in Rzeszow, Poland.
A photo project by Mr. Batista again; too cool not to mention it again!
Chaim Machlev and his awesome tattoos straight from Germany. And also from Germany an article about a pastor writing his Ph.D. thesis on body modification. A short text about another tattoo artist from Micronesia only adds to this multiculti mix.
From the US we have a piece of news about tattoos hindering the recruitment efforts for the U.S. Army.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his new tattoos make headlines on the Internet but this time it’s more than just gossip! Ibrahimovic’s temporary tattos are a statement trying to turn our attention to millions of those who suffer from hunger all over the world. In the countries where people suffer more from obesity than starvation and where food gets so often just thrown away, it’s definitely much needed!
‘Tattoos After Dark’ show aired in Australia. Shows make rounds! ;)
An interesting article about tattoos in Fiji!
A great action on tattoo artists’ part in the UK – all the proceedings from Friday the 13th tattoos go to the local hospice!
A good initiative also in Poland where the local artists join the Mam Marzenie (I Have a Dream) foundation to make kids happy.
After the TV Ink reality shows, Bodyshockers and some other goodies, the tattoo stuff is still popular and a new show focused on fixing the tattoos is going to be made soon.
