I like weird coincidences and they tend to happen quite often; let’s take a look at this one: I’ve just finished reading ‘Kőrpermodifikation im Wandel der Zeit’ (which proved to be quite weak as a whole) where I got to read about Karl Rove’s father’s piercings and secret life only to stumble upon an online article about it: ‘Karl Rove Mum about gay, pierced dad.’

Dress code and a question of role models strike yet again in ‘Ogden teacher says it’s his right to display arm tattoos’ and in an article about a student suspended for having a nose piercing allegedly inspired by a teacher’s piercing.

In other, not that hot, news, another article about new Penguin book covers and a slide show of modified people as seen at a tattoo convention in Buenos Aires.
