Most of the time dress code just appears and gets forced upon people but, turns out, sometimes it also can be revoked, just like it happened recently in a town in MD – local policemen were forced to cover their tattoos while on duty but that’s not the case anymore – Right to bare arms! (more…) Maybe LAFD could use this route themselves?
Interesting data from FL and a few pieces of advice on what to look out for if you want to get some body modification done. Also, an article about a new tattoo and piercing shop in Antioch, IL that indirectly sheds some light on legal requirements to meet if you want to open/ operate such a shop.
A small coverage of the first Body Art Show at Navy Pier, Chicago, IL. A buddy of mine is attending the event which hopefully means some interesting pictures to see. In the meantime this article and a slide show to follow.
And an interview with a Spanish tattoo artist and organizer of the tattoo convention in Valencia, Spain and a profile of an African American tattoo artist based in Tonawanda, NY – I really like these small, local touches in the articles focused on body art.
