The new week brought some interesting articles:
Quite a few new books, either already available or upcoming, on body modification lately; another one is by Henk Schiffmacher himself – his tattoo lexicon.
This past weekend there was a tattoo convention in Louisville, KY; quite telling a title of the article, ‘Expo shows the draw of tattoos doesn’t fade in tight times’, says is all.
It’s been two years since tattooing was legalized in OK; since then, few citations for health code violations appeared on the record: ‘OK tattoo artists’ records reveal few bad marks’.
The last two for today deal less with tattoos and more with faith but since they are interesting to read, I’m including them: about a new branch of Deliverance Bible Church in TX and ‘makahiki ritual’ in HI.
