Obama tattoos and other ink

The big day for Barack Obama and the US, so let’s start with things going on in Washington: ‘D.C. tattoo parlors offer lasting inaugural memories’ (‘Obama piercing’ explained in this one); apparently there is ‘no history of George W. Bush tattoos;’

Other people and their tattoos: Crushington Coutois and stories behind her tattoos, a CT tattoo artist talking about his own body art and a UK-based football fan and his new backpiece.

Two upcoming tattoo conventions: Baltimore Tattoo Arts Convention just around the corner and a tattoo show in Argentina that is going to take place in March.
