around the world

Today’s post is just how I like it – international.

From Australia articles about ‘tattoos and maternal instincts,’ first-timers getting awards at a local tattoo convention and a pretty interesting article about ear reconstruction (stretched piercings not mentioned here, though).

And while speaking of the east side of the world, an article about China and tattoos: ‘taboo removal: in China, tattoos make a comeback.

South America represented by an article about ‘tattoos in Venezuela.

News from the US: ‘geeky tattoos,’ ‘Chuco Art Project book’ to commemorate a late tattoo artist and an interesting article about a local Detroit shop offering both tattoos and tattoo removal (and let’s mention Allen Falkner’s enterprise also focusing on tattoo removal).
