let’s drink to it!

The biggest piece of news (or maybe the greatest and truest revelation of all times) of the last few days was probably the *cough* ‘scientific fact’ that the tattooed and pierced people drink more than others. Should we trust this study? 😉

Drunk or not, there are more and more tattooed people out there: a tattoo convention in Nepal proves that, tattoo popularity growing in Canada, Polish ‘new urban fashion’ (silly as it sounds).

In different contexts: tattooed Mums but not for the kids and Dr. Martens boots also ‘tattooed.’

Etched in skin, a sign from the heart’ brings our attention to the Aboriginal culture and people who want to keep it alive.

Ear stretching a.k.a. ‘gauging’ (:P)

tattoos and languages

A nice treat for all of us loving text tattoos: Litreactor combines love for literature and tattoos (this short article in Dutch brought my attention to it).

Body art broadly speaking: body in Arab art featured in France and an exhbit devoted to Maori culture in Germany (the museum’s website).

It goes without saying that languages are great, even if you don’t speak them fluently. The Chinese seem to be fascinated with tattoos in English now and how many of us Westerners have sinned with a Chinese character tattooed on us?

From Australia a short article about the tattooed feeling discriminated and trying to fight a negative image stuck to them. From the USA a somewhat cheesy but also nice story about people being people no matter what they look!

A small follow-up of Game of Thrones tattoos.

A nice way to show that the modified can and actually do something good for their communities: a fundraiser for an autism charity at a local shop.
