Only three today but interesting ones.
Bits and pieces today but they are all still interesting!
First of all, a nice array of brave people who decided to change their outward appearance to reflect their inward feelings. The Lizardman included!
Tattoos presented as personal preference and professional persecution (big words!) and a German one presenting tattooing as a profession.
Travelling passion reflected on skin in an article about a girl collecting her tattoos in the places she visits. A little related: tattoos in modern China.
Battery tattoos soon may be yet another example of e-tattoos used in many different fields. This one I would love to use myself and for my mp3players (esp. the one I use for my runs).
WWF Russia and their campaign to raise awareness of endangered species with a little help from tattoo artists. Also related to tattoos and animals, a short text and a video about a certain horse and a tattoo that’s supposed to save the horse’s eye.
An article about growing popularity of tattoos among seniors for dessert. More tattooed people – less prejudices?
My friends from Tattoo.pl (and I miss these guys awfully!) had an idea for a holiday contest combining tattoos and some good time on vacations. The tattoos don’t have to be done by them only, so if you are in for some fun, go ahead and submit some interesting pictures.
The contest lasts till September 6. I so would participate just for the heck of it but I’m one of the social network outcasts and the only FB I actually do is visiting Tattoo.pl page on work days! :P
For all of us playing the role of outcasts, Sex Pistols’ ‘holiday in the sun.’ :)
Not many interesting links today (still no WiFi net for me) but the ones below are not too bad.
I’ll never get tired of stories behind people’s tattoos, no matter how ordinary they may seem.
Movie-inspired tattoos also say a lot about people wearing them.
A familiar face looking at us from the pics attached to an article about a tattoo convention in Berlin.
Sunday is a God’s day, so an article about a Church where tattoos are not looked down.
A handful of spirituality courtesy of Bastian who sent me a link to this text on body suspension.
on a sidenote, I lost a Wi-Fi access, so I bet there are many other interesting articles out there that I didn’t come across. Here’s to hope that soon I’ll have the Wi-Fi access again – these days no phone/ net is equal to the lack of a hand or sth! ;)
I keep having Hanzel und Gretyl’s music in my head these days and seeing how I’ve been in Germany for almost 4 weeks now, no wonder that German news coverage is of special interest to me! ;)
Also from Germany a short and uninteresting (but it’s all for the recording’s sake) article about ear stretching (and I want to order some new eyelets from Wildcat, based in Germany, of course!).
From Bastian a nice article on body suspension!
The tattoo scene in Denmark isn’t very well-known, so I read this article with quite an interest. Apparently, acc. To the Danish law, there are some placements that are illegal to cover with tattoos but now there’s growing demand for such tattoos.
Temporary tattoos and good books – two in one!
Finally, good to read, interesting and dealing with pop culture – tattoos and fandom!
Medicine-related is also this one about electronic tattoos.
While the tattoo artists and visitors are proudly showing their ink off in Poland, other people are not so lucky – in Chandler, AZ local police officers should cover their tattoos at work. Visible tattoos allegedly equal to an unprofessional image; nothing new!
Another dress code issue in the UK. Gems!
In Myanmar one can’t get a tattoo of the map of this country below the waist. A very interesting restriction!
Corset piercing – quite rare a form of body piercing.
A good body and not bad a tattoo – Colin Kaepernick’s new tattoo reminds us that money is not that important!
For some of us tattoos and other forms of body modification are about beauty, pure easthetics, looks and feel. Others say tattoos are a lifestyle although they look at it from idfferent perspectives. Here’s a Poilish article where tattoo lifestyle is more about feelings and attitude and here an American one where tattoo motives appear also as elements of interior design! Some great name dropping (Don Ed Hardy, Scott Campbell) happens! ;)
