good and interesting news

Several interesting ones so far:

Good news from Poznan, Poland, where tattoo artists from my regular tattoo shop won quite a few awards at a local tattoo convention (here’s another video from the event).

A ‘gem’ about scarification and other, more ‘extreme’ forms of body modification: ‘technique goes beyond tattoos.’

High-brow stuff: Ed Hardy as a lecturer at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and an interesting article about a new book on literary tattoos, ‘word made flesh.’ My pre-ordered copy of it got shipped yout yesterday.

An interesting one from Bastian: an article about the German healthcare reform which has something to do with body modification. And from the US an article about ‘dermatologists’ experiences with tattoos.’

Tattoo scene and charity in ‘tatts for cats.’

Ads: ‘plummeting value of flesh-based ads’ and a *turned-into-tattoos*  mascot from India (images of the mascot here).

Celeb glitter: ‘Kelly Osbourne removes her tattoos,’ ‘the worst tattoos on celebs‘ and ‘female celeb piercings.’ On the other side of the spectrum, a short but quite interesting article about trends and their backgrounds (courtesy of Bastian!).

    Nice, as always!
    And next time, there’ll hopefully be a personal review of a convention in your hometown!

    haha if it’s in October again, then hopefully I’ll be way busy with something else! 4 am and all! 🙂

    But I doubt you’ll have acquired as much endurance as be busy with ‘that other activity’ all day! 😉

    I might go the ultra route! 😛

    Ultra? So much for being ‘not obsessed’! Ultra = Hardcore!

    yeah, probably too hardcore; I ain’t a female version of Scott Jurek after all 😦 😉
