Tattoos: job market, jail and more

Quite a lot of articles on tattoos and job market. It started when I came across this one about a young woman removing her old tattoos to be able to move on and then it just went downhill. Interestingly and funny enough, I also read this one about a new technique that allows to reveal removed or covered-up tattoos. Apparently, we can’t escape from ourselves 😉

I’ve already written about it some time ago but since it’s interesting enough and some new info popped up, here Lexington Tattoo Project again. Of course, you just can’t stop thinking how similar it is to Shelley Jackson’s Skin Project but these days it’s actually hard to come up with something really new.

Another one resembling the Skin Project if the Human Rights Tattoo project that got some press again. As a matter of fact, I was SOOO ready to be part of it but alas, it’s not gonna happen any time soon due to their rather strict rules! Too bad! Since I like to think about myself as a flexible person and an activist, I adopted some bees instead!

In this weekend’s ‘High Heels’ edition (a weekend extra for the Wyborcza newspaper) there’s an interesting article about Vampira whose image found its way into the tattoo world. The pic below was spat out by the Google Images but it seems to origin from this website.
