Ever since the global crisis kicked in, we can often see headlines about safe-bet jobs that will give us good income in the future; looks like tattoo removal business might be one of these ‘safe’ venues: ‘the forever portfolio; betting on aging boomers, obesity and tattoo removal.‘
A little more about tattoo removal although along less reassuring lines: ‘ taxpayers could pay to remove inmates’ tattoos’ (the readers’ comment section is definitely interesting in this one).
Two interesting ones in foreign languages: the German answer to the ‘can tattoos ‘grow’?’ question and a short article in Dutch about a teenager and her short film about the right to modify one’s body (esp. when ‘one’ is young).
Something to ponder on a little: ‘Sports Illustrated responds to taking off Danica’s tattoo.‘
The last one is not about body modifications per se but it shows how one can use human bodies for some funny things: ‘Obama body art’!
