tattoos find their way(s)

Chinese foot binding and Kayan tribe’s body modification here while here you can see some traditional Thai ‘sacred’ ink. Also, from Hawaii, a short article on the rising popularity of traditional Polynesian tattoos (Keone Nunes mentioned).

Nike went for tradition, too and now has a sports apparel line for women with a traditional tattooinspired pattern. Is it good or bad?

A very interesting art project in Italy: Michelangelo’s David covered in tattoos.

Map tattoos here.

A bit more serious: tattoos may hide signs of melanoma.

A video of suspension show from New Jersey.

Tattoos still popular in Poland (and pretty much everywhere else, no? ;))

Finally, an interesting idea for very temporary tattoos: shadow body art.
