Either you get it or you don’t!

It’s been a great treat to watch the IAAF Championship competitions in Moscow (on TV that is ;)); with the event coming to an end, here’s a slide show featuring some of the athlete tattoos. The question of athlete tattoos and copyrights is discussed here.

Also sports-related but on a sad note: the photo project ‘Bled for Boston.’

Nike’s been having a really bad luck this year – first their misfired slogan for Pistorius, then their failure with the Boston Massacre shirt, and now reactions to the tattoo-inspired apparel line also turned out not the way they expected! Obviously, it’s not about market and profits, eh?

People’s take on tattoos: a pastor devoted to (Iron) Maiden, a huge fan of the ‘Twilight’ saga, Larry da Leopard, tattoos at a more advanced age than you may think and another map tattoo.

Scott Campbell!

Para-medical tattoos.

Tattoos and their meanings!

People’s reactions to tattoos and one person’s replies – a pretty good and funny one.

From ‘Down Under’ an article about stretched lobes (reconstruction) and another one about tattoos at work.

fit, modified, open-minded, well-read, always eager to learn. Don't judge me by your standards!

    The priest with the Maiden bodysuit (well…) was prominently featured in the Flight666 documentary – there’s an excerpt on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj_8-e3fiRs. BTW, I’ll be flying to Brazil to see them live there! Hell yes!
    So good to see you find time for other things than cramming for work these days….
