be yourself but only the way we want you to?

Another world record for most body piercings was just achieved! The big question is ‘what’s next?’

Pierce your body’ may not be the best piece ever but it’s more than just a provocative title.

In MN a new tattoo/ body piercing law is going to take effect on July 1.

America is still about recession and there are still pieces of news telling us that the tattoo industry proved to be recession-immune; here two other such articles with extra stats on other related topics.

Personally I’ve never bought Dove’s ads starring ‘ordinary’ women and allegedly celebrating women the way they are, so I’m not that surprised after reading ‘Dove seeks ‘real’ but ‘flawless’ models.’ On a somewhat related note an article about big American retailers’ employee dress code. ‘It’s all just the business, baby, so go and do business!’

Two pieces of news in the ‘people’ section: a Shanghai tattoo master and a celebrity with buff (and tattooed) arms.

    no scars, no tattoos, not too athletic, not too curvy?
    Although I have to say one thing I *like* about dove’s campaigns is that they used a *gasp* redhead in one of them. That’s something you rarely see. Then again, I’m biased like that because I am one lol.

    Charity and tattoos seem to go well together! I know of a few people who had those types of fundraisers and did well!

    Neutrogena used (!) a redhead model in one of their ads, too, if I remember correctly. I don’t even like Dove and don’t use their products, so I just kind of dig the fact that I was right not believing in their campaigns!

    even Polish industry starts getting into charity now (which is unusual for the whole nation – Poles are still selfish and don’t usually care about community spirit and wellness) and organizers of the last Tattoo Fest decided to donate money to the local ZOO. I’m all for such actions, of course!
