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.
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.
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….
