gadgets, books and pointless rankings

Tattoos-related accessories seem to be omnipresent these days: Ed Hardy cell phone and there’s also HTC Tattoo now, too; not to mention new items carried by Wildcat.

A bit more highbrow stuff in ‘Black Tattoo Art: Modern Expressions of the Tribal’ (looks like a very interesting book by a lawyer and tattoo aficionado at and an article about ‘Messages in Flesh’ exhibit in CA.

Law-related: ‘California bill would tighten rules on tattoos, piercing.’

Wrongest tattoo ever?’ and ’25 ugly food tattoos’ – not overly sophisticated but, obviously, some people out there love lists and rankings.

    Ed Hardy is such a sellout doucetard ugh! As for some of those food tattoos, yeah the artwork was shit so of course they’re going to look bad but some of them while not my style were actually pretty good!

    I actually look at Ed Hardy as a victim of commercialism and corporate greed (big words, eh?); I think that this whole flood of stuff with his art plastered on was not what he intended when he signed up for the cooperation with this French marketing wonder (I mean here this Christian Whose-last-name-I-can’t-recall-now) and before he even noticed his art started being not only overused but also abused.

    While I do lean towards a certain amount of agreement, in the same token he’s allowing himself to be subjected to it as well. I don’t think he minds the money that he’s making off of this venture right? It just irritates me to see tattoo art so blatantly commercialized as a fashion accessory as opposed to the true meaning of tattoo art.
