Dress code strikes again and this time it’s in Canada, Germany and the US. Japan, esp. Osaka, still goes strong, too.
With this tattoo-hunt news, it’s actually nice to read about tattoo industry booming: ‘where tattoos mean real business’ (NYC) but it’s not only about big cities as Michigan (hardly one of the most entertaining and popular states ever, is it?) where interesting artists work, too.
Tattoo artists speak up about and against tattoo trends: ‘trends vs. custom work’ and ‘against tattoo fashion.’ On the other hand, an interesting article from the UK: an archeological discovery of 2,500-year-old tattoos on ‘Siberian princess’ showing that tattoos and their placements haven’t changed much during this time.
Something changed, though, as this ‘anal tattoo’ shows! Here you can also read an interview with the girl in question.
A piece of news from Germany tries to tell us that the poorer you are, the more tattoos you have (or so says a survey they conducted there!).
Finally, something to watch and maybe check out: 10 tattoo artists you should follow on instagram.
Oh, too bad your suspension experiences are no longer the first thing I see when coming to your page. These pictures always made me smile and think back to that beautiful day!
Anyway, that German study should rather read “the poorer you are the more likely you are to get tattooed”. Which is only natural, as the age group with the greatest proliferation of tattoos is the 16-25 year-olds of which students and “Azubis” form a large percentage of. You will not see many in that age group making more than 1000 Euros per month,
The article the Focus did about this was more detailed, too:
that’s a good point! anyway, they asked only 500 people which isn’t enough to draw solid conclusions, I’d say.
The study itself was ‘representative’. When the sample group is selected carefully enough, 500 people can be enough.
