A few articles about tattoo conventions for starters: Biggest Tattoo Show on Earth (nice interview with Mario Barth), a short one about Tattoo Expo in Barcelona and another one about recent TattooFest in Warsaw, Poland (not a mind-blowing event, mind you, but I’m being ‘patriotic’ for once;)).
I don’t know how many people will be able to go through another one in Polish (wonderfully nasty a language it is) but here’s an interesting interview with a editor of one of the Polish tattoo magazines talking about tattoos and people getting them done.
‘Climate justice tattoo’ is a great example of tattoos being not only about whims and trends but also about true passion and commitment to ideas.
A bit of history in ‘tattoos and the army – long and colorful tradition.’
Another Spanish one (because I’m enjoying reading trying to read in Spanish again) – the sexiest tattoos of 2009; and just for balance’s sake another silly list in ‘top 12 worst celebrity tattoo ideas.’
As a bonus a VIP touch in short interviews with VIP’s attending the convention in Vegas and an article about a(nother) tattoo-inspired clothing line (hmmm, ridiculously expensive these t-shirts, ain’t they?)
