ideals of beauty … women only?

When it comes to so-called beauty, it seems to be about women only. Sure that men have their own issues to tackle but their concerns and beauty standards don’t get that much publicity and media coverage!

Orlan

Here we have Orlan, a great artist who challenges and discusses beauty standards! There will be an exhibit of her work soon!

A slide show focused on tattooed women who allegedly challenge the conventions! which is a lil debatable!

cosmetic tattooing

Here another way to both challenge and conform to conventions: eyebrow tattooing as in cosmetic tattooing.

Furiosa

Furiosa, a strong female figure who inspires tattoos!

_________

For sth a lil different: a musem exhibit focused on tattoo history coming soon in London!
