un/interesting ideas

Interesting news ‘submitted’ by Bastian (thank you!): ‘Tattoo gays, clergyman writes.’ The German online newspapers posted short articles about it as well and here are also articles discussing the ‘idea’ from various perspectives. Welcome back, Middle Ages?

In other news, a German article discussing body piercing regulations.

A voice in discussion about the planned gang tattoo ban in New Zealand: ‘why ban gang patches’. Kudos to the guy pointing out a huge difference between gang tattoos and ta moko.

An interesting exhibition in Australia: ‘ tattoos and piercings: a human canvas’.

Finally, ‘prosthetic tattoos’. It’s not a very new idea (if my memory serves me correctly, a model, Amina Munster, got them done quite long ago) but it’s interesting nevertheless.
