and back again

So I’m back online and with a few links to post:

Bastian was great (as usual!) and sent me interesting links in German: about teenage girls and their modifications (plus a book review on the subject); in a somewhat similar vein an article about stress and body modifications (another one).

Tattoos and classism in ‘Beyond the tramp stamp’ – I found it quite interesting.

A bunch of others: a Belgian short article about genital piercings, German ones about tennis tattoos and a question of the Jews and tattoos, an American one about ‘tattoo parlor trading ink for ministry [at times]’ and some info on fast approaching London Tattoo Convention.

A sort of dessert: fashion show with tattoos as one of the main accessories: Rodarte Spring/Summer 2010 (pictures).
