bits of this and that

A couple of interesting ones:

Tattoos in Japan – their past and present; an interesting, multidisciplinary exhibit in London showing the wonders and uses of the human skin and a bit of history in an article about celebrations of Sailor Jerry’s life.

A Canadian article about apprenticeship is short but maybe interesting for some people out there.

Ever-present sense of wonder in a German (as in language and location? ;)) article about a new painful trend in tattooing.

Eye-candy in ‘models with tattoos,’ ‘the most expensive tattoo in the world’ (interesting project!) and a touch of sentimentalism in ‘moms with ink.’

Finally, tattoos for a good cause in ‘tattoo fundraiser’ and ‘tattoos: inked for a cause’ which seems to be a cool initiative.

* I’ll be away from the virtual land this weekend but should have interesting things to update about once I’m back!
