There was a lot of articles and images from the tattoo convention in Venezuela. Most of them were ‘awe-and-cringe’ sort, so they weren’t worth being mentioned. This one is a bit different as it not only lets you see but also makes you listen to the people from the pictures and try to udnerstand the reasoning behind their decision!

Nothing original in the dress code/ tattoos and jobs department: ‘hurting job prospects‘ and ‘ink, career sink.’
A bit similar is an ad campaign for tattoo removal business in Switzerland with images like these below. Something in them really annoys me 😛

A documentary on tattoos in the making.
A great inspiring story showing once again (but for some people it’s never enough) how every body has its story and it gets cooler with a tattoo on it!
