dangers, oddities and good books

Interesting links from two first days of this week:

DIY/home-made tattoos in ‘inmates risk lives with DIY tattoos at tough jail’ and ‘aspiring artists reject fears of harming their customers.’ The latter is interesting as home-based tattooing is not as simple as people from the industry would like us to believe and, at the same time, it isn’t the way these ‘aspiring artists’ would like us to believe, either. The only thing that’s probably really simple and true here is that most people would like to get a good quality tattoo and pay for that as little as possible.

 Odd news from the Netherlands where people get offered a tattoo of their official BSN number.

 Tattoos and good cause in ‘Ink, not mink’ from Australia.

 Art show by tattoo artists in ‘Drawing Blood II.’

 If you’re not fed up with tattoos and church yet, here’s another one: ‘Washington church features live tattooing.’

 Maybe this book review is not very related to body modification but the English title of the book is ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ and since I’ve just finished reading the book, I can wholeheartedly recommend it and say that one of the main characters is not only modified but also nicely shows that a modified person can be (usually is? ;)) intelligent and talented!
