Back in time and yet with a modern, gender twist, the cover of the June issue of the Polish National Geographic is beautiful!
From Canada an article about more women in the predominantly male tattoo industry. It’s certainly nothing new and in this case I must agree with Kat Von D’s statement in this one where she discusses her new book (I’m in the middle of reading it but it may take a while – interesting intertwines with pretentious here).
Modified charity in ‘tattoos for a cause.’
News from Poland: ‘tattoo jam in Radom’ and an interview with a young (and hopefully promising) tattoo artist. On a side note, I do cringe when they use the word ‘tatuażysta’ (=tattooist) to describe a tattoo artist/ tattooer; it’s kind of degrading and lands this profession straight in the stylists/ celebs realm.
Something for Bastian and others into hooks – ‘hanging on’ discusses suspension, Allen Falkner and his TSD team.
Another influential person, Brian Decker, mentioned in this, somewhat naïve text about ‘scar tattoos’ (sic!).
We all heard about the first Christians allegedly tattooing the symbols of their faith on them or the medieval knights getting tattoos in the time of the Crusades; here’s another twist on it: ‘Jerusalem family tattoos pilgrims for centuries.’
‘Keep your tattoos from fading’ is a must at this time of the year!
An interesting submission from Bastian – hooks, of course 😉
‘body art stereotypes misrepresent tattoo and body piercing culture’ – definitely much food for thought!
For once tattoos and other forms of body modification are handy à AZ-based restaurant wants to hire modified people.
Tattoos and skin cancer! Funny, how they phrase the headlines to catch our attention!
Another ‘American Mary’ review. I didn’t manage to watch the whole movie; maybe one of these days, though!
Mum tattoos here!
Since I seem to be getting into ‘the Biggest Looser’ show, let me show you a guy who looks absolutely awesome – he’s damn fit, wonderfully buff and he’s heavily tattooed at that! Bob Harper, one of the trainers on the show!
Not many links this week but the newsfeed still managed to bring some interesting ones:
There’s also a chance that once you get your tattoo done, you may land on the police register – this time it’s Queensland, Australia.
Nothing splendid but it’s nice to see familiar faces: a slide show called ‘would you do that to your face?’ (as if there was anything wrong with these faces!)
A nice submission from Bastian – Corey Miller on tattoos! (thank you!)
