you can praise the Lord with tattoos, too!

Job seekers still have to hide their tattoos’ says this article and there really is sth to it. According to the article, the USA is kind of divided in this regard: “On the West Coast, the tattoo lifestyle is extremely strong, and it’s supernormal,” […] “On the East Coast, it’s strong. Probably the central states are more like an issue.” “We know that tattoos and piercing represent an important mode of self-expression, and we don’t want to stifle that, as long as they’re not considered offensive,” says Jackie Ferman, a spokeswoman for Children’s [Hospital in St. Louis]. “I’m sure it’s a relief for a lot of people.” Oh yeah, it sure is! 😀

Despite the possible problems that go together with being tattooed, apparently ‘more people are getting tattooed.’

More tattoos, especially these people don’t pay much thought to beforehand, means more bad quality body art. It can either get lasered off or covered up and here we have another opportunity for the entertainment biz – America’s Worst Tattoos show is about to start its second season on TV. (the video below is a lil old-ish, though).

I may be a little cynical and disillusioned when it comes to the ways the modern world works but I’m still sensitive enough to love articles I dubbed ‘modified charity.’ Here’s another one: the 13th annual tattoo-a-thon in San Francisco with profits going to the local Children’s Hospital. The shop that stands behind the event promotes tolerance and acceptance and is all for a friendly atmosphere!

Scott Campbell and his art projects!

Tattoos and religion: ‘tattoos reign in Israel,’ temporary Bible tattoos and tattoos as a tool for Christian ministry. The Christian God has always been about including and reaching out to the social outcasts; it’s only his followers who started to exclude these who didn’t fit their imagined God’s image 😉
