extreme and traditional mod(e)s

I think I’ll just overlook this whole Kat-Von-D-and-her-new-tattoo affair, especially that there are some more interesting things related to body modification:

Extreme body modification: a beautiful controversy’ discusses what it promises although not really in depth; Steve Truitt is mentioned/ quoted in this one, though.

Tradition respected both in the industry and in academia: an Indonesian tattoo artist into traditional tattoo art and ‘university opening its door to Samoa tattoo.’

Tattoos on models’ is a pretty nice slide show proving how mainstream tattoos are now.

An interesting one from theUK: a woman who got into tattoos after getting divorced from her husband.
