tattoo fair

I’m not a fan of the news focused on celebs but these are quite good for a few reasons: the article showing David Beckham’s body art-related evolution is interesting – body becoming less and less blank, so often both admired and criticized and, certainly, his own self-perception also changing over time (even us ordinary mortals with some ink coverage experience that); another one mentioning an Austrian model who doesn’t hide her tattoos while doing photo shoots but rather exposing them and using to her advantage and, on the opposite side, Megan Fox signing a lucrative ad campaign deal, eager to ‘doctor’ her body to look more acceptable. Choices are ours and yet we are so often manipulated by people out there.

 A cross of conventional beauty playing with an alternative touch in an article about MissInkAmerica pageant.

Another product exploiting popularity of tattoos: ‘iLuvTatz headphones.’

If you liked the headphone spelling, you’ll also like this one: ‘the 20 worst typo tattoos’ (for some reason I found the captions hilarious and, to make it even funnier, I managed to misspell ‘hilarious,’ so thanks gawds for spell checker!).

    I love how they say Megan fox is covered, in body art. I think between the two of us we’ve pretty much got a suit or close to it. Now that’s covered!

    Loved, loved the top 20! 🙂

    perception is subjective, so for the most ppl a few tattoos means ‘covered;’ and then ppl who are past this switch to counting hours instead of pieces;
    I like the points in this Fox article, though – def. interesting and showing how there’s a clash between things people and tabloids say and things people do.

    This is true! I’m looking at it from a tattooed persons point of view. To me saying that I have 20+ tattoos “sounds” like a lot to a non tattooed/barely tattooed person whereas to me its not that much. Not only that her tattoos are quite tasteful and strategically placed in an ascetically pleasing manner (IMHO)

    All the articles that you post (pending of course I can read them lol) are usually interesting! Another site you might get some enjoyment from: http://yourtattoosucks.com/ Not all of them suck mind you, some of the tattoos posted there are amazing so its a mixed bag of sorts.
