A nice submission from Bastian (thank you!): a short video covering a tattoo convention in Germany; not very new but still interesting.
Speaking of films, here’s a slide show on tattoos in films.
‘The body as art’ discusses mostly ear stretching which is good on its own (not that frequent a topic) but also throws in a few words on spirituality that some people associate with body modification.
Some spirituality also in this article describing Christian body art.
Finally, a touch of outrage in a silly slide show.
