a new item for my collection

Just a few links to close the week:

tattoos – it’s all about the art and meaning’ is general in tone but not bad to read;

tattoos paying tributes’ is definitely more interesting as it shows tattoos on a serious movie buff – nothing better than passionate people with love for body art.

Something to visit and watch: ‘tattoos and piercings in portraits’ in one of museums in Hamburg, Germany and here’s more info on ‘Tattoo Highway’ TV show.

Congressional earmarks’ discuss briefly the tattoo removal program in CA.

And on a personal note: I just got a message from Amazon.com that they shipped my copy of ‘The Piercing Bible’ by Elayne Angel – about the time as it was seriously delayed. I’ll make sure to post more about the book once it’s here and I’m done with reading!

Friday mix

Some good miscellaneous ones for today:

Law-related news from FL: ‘stiffer penalties proposed for tattooing minors’ (another one) while in the UK ‘tattooed arm of law is OK now’ (dress code for Manchester policemen).

when tattoo parlors meet the internet’ shows both the good and the bad about interaction between tattoo shops and the web. And speaking of modern technology, ‘Inked Magazine signs license agreement for iPhone application.

Mods and music: ‘new book to document Black Flag tattoos’ and ‘the best and worst piercings in rock’ (photo gallery).

Maybe it’s just an April’s Fool joke as it doesn’t sound very credible: ‘having tattoos is a sign of low self-esteem.

A feminine touch with ‘women tattoo artists showing up the men’ and ‘cheerleaders’ tattoo taboo.
