(almost) all quiet

A slow beginning of the week but obviously there were some tattoo conventions happening during the weekend as besides the info on the Boston Tattoo Convention, here’s also an article about a tattoo convention in Germany. And some info on the upcoming, quite important event, i.e. London International Tattoo Convention 2010.

An article about the first Miss Ink America who’s preparing to pass the crown.

Another attempt at ‘every body has a story’ in an article telling about and showing tattoos on people in Richmond, VA.

Meanwhile, across the Pond (as the British allegedly say), some students of the vocational institute in Finland have to deal with a ban on body piercing jewelry.

We’ve already seen quite a few people ready to sell space on their skin to get (or raise) some money; here’s another try by a teenage mother who wants to get more money for her son.

As always, it’s quite surprising to hear (or read) a doctor discussing tattoos and piercings; good points they may make but their stubborn acceptance of the piercing guns is still surprising, just like in this one.
