interesting!

interface tattoos

A recent invention combines temporary tattos and the digital age! What the future holds in store for us? It’s quite exciting to watch how fast and dynamic the world changes around us!

Old-school music passion and love for a particular band – U2 and U2-related tattoos!

Good news from Germany – tattoos are not so much frowed upon in the work environment. I cana ctually confirm it from my own experience!

Finally, a pretty cool vidoe showing “antics” of a suspension group from NY!

a book and some hooks

needle work book

Given the popularity of tattoos, there are surprisingly not that many novels focused on tattoos. Here’s one published recently and focused on domestic abuse, dealing with trauma and fighting for freedom of expression and just being.

MN body suspension

There aren’t that many texts on body suspension, either, esp. these good ones. This one is quite nicely written!

base hooking

Of course it”s not the proper name for the activity you see in the pics in this post but I like playing with words. This summer I got to hear a lot about it and YES, I’d love to try it myself one day. Wyrd geht stets seinen Lauf, so who knows? For now, let’s admire those who have enough courage, skills and a sense of fun to try it!

You can read a little about it here and here.

still in Deutschland!

Rolf in Berlin

A familiar face looking at us from the pics attached to an article about a tattoo convention in Berlin.

Also from Germany articles on tattoos in BundeswehraGerman army where soldiers are obligated to cover their tattoos now.

Sunday is a God’s day, so an article about a Church where tattoos are not looked down.

A handful of spirituality courtesy of Bastian who sent me a link to this text on body suspension.

Tattoo Art Service globally.

Finally, something in Dutch – a Swedish artist Niki Norberg is quite talented (to put it mildly) and quite recognized and respected by now.

on a sidenote, I lost a Wi-Fi access, so I bet there are many other interesting articles out there that I didn’t come across. Here’s to hope that soon I’ll have the Wi-Fi access again – these days no phone/ net is equal to the lack of a hand or sth! 😉

deutschland, deutschland …

I keep having Hanzel und Gretyl’s music in my head these days and seeing how I’ve been in Germany for almost  4 weeks now, no wonder that German news coverage is of special interest to me! 😉

Probably it’s the sign of the summer lull – a Swiss online magazine started running a series of articles focused on the origins and meaning of tattoos.

ban on hell's angels tattoos

In some parts of Germany Hell’s Angels and Los Basndidos’ tattoos can’t be shown in public and they must be covered by clothing or band aids.

Also from Germany a short and uninteresting (but it’s all for the recording’s sake) article about ear stretching (and I want to order some new eyelets from Wildcat, based in Germany, of course!).

Berlin-based artist Chaim Machlev is an amazing artist!

From Bastian a nice article on body suspension!

medical tattoo

Medical tattoos – they may seem a good idea and yet they have stirred some controversy! Coincidentally, there was also something on this subject in the Polish news coverage.

The tattoo scene in Denmark isn’t very well-known, so I read this article with quite an interest. Apparently, acc. To the Danish law, there are some placements that are illegal to cover with tattoos but now there’s growing demand for such tattoos.

Temporary tattoos and good books – two in one!

tattoos and fandom

Finally, good to read, interesting and dealing with pop culture – tattoos and fandom!

hooks and nature – a perfect combo!

it may be my last post for a while (or maybe not), so let’s take a look at this:

The video is a lil weird, I do admit, but the article attached to it 😉 is certainly worth reading. Maybe you won’t agree with all the words and maybe you’d like to rephrase the experience itself with your own words but it’s too beautiful and amazing to just simplify and condemn it!
