conventions, faith and splits

Best wishes to Hello Kitty as apparently today it’s her birthday; the occasion is celebrated in Las Vegas, NV.

 An interesting choice of place for a tattoo convention in Philadelphia where a tattoo festival took place on a warship – a kind of tribute to all these seasoned sailors who brought tattoos to Europe and loved it for centuries. An upcoming convention, probably in a less interesting location, in Vienna, Austria in November.

 Tattoos and religion in ‘religious tattoos question faith’ and ‘church where tattoos outnumber ties.’ Probably it’s up to God how to look at tattoos and people who have them.

 In the last post I linked to an article about a British shop openly advertising tongue splitting; here an article why at least Vigo county, IN, shops should not do so: ‘ordinance to outlaw tongue splitting.’
