November 12 2006 Body Art Newsletter


Greetings, Body Art Fans!

Welcome to the November edition of the Bellaonline Body Art Newsletter.

I've been doing a lot of reading on classic tattoo designs and material on the history of tattooing from the first half of the 20th century. Designs from this era are having a resurrgence in popularity. The more I look at it, the more I think it's the crisp graphics and simplicity that keeps the old hearts-and-daggers and nautical stars favorites for decades.

I also recently marched in a parade for the Day of the Dead, and I wore one of my corsets as an obi over a festive kimono. That got me to thinking about fitting corsets and I did another article on how to pick the corset shapes that works best with your torso proportions.

NEWEST ARTICLES:

The Tattoo Pinup Girl
Pinup girls have made the transition from photographs to skin art since the 1940s. Take a closer look at these inked ladies.

Corset Shapes and Styles
One of the key components to comfortable corsetry is making sure the style of the corset compliments your natural body shape.

Foot Binding
One of the most unique body art practices that ever evolved was the Chinese custom of foot binding. Learn more about this now obsolete practice.


BOOK REVIEW:

Tattoo, Secrets of a Strange Art
This is a reprint of a book about tattooing and American tattoo culture that was first published in 1933! Fascinating details and history from the late 1890s up through the early 30s.


HOT LINKS:

  • Exotic Ear Piercing - The boom in body piercing popularity gave birth to whole new piercings. You may have pierced ears, but what kind of ear piercings do you really have? A tragus? Conch? Helix or Industrial?
  • The Labret, or Lip Piercing - The lip piercing, or labret, has been a steady presence in the history of body piercing. Placement and jewelry choice are essential to the enjoyment of these piercings.

We've also got an online forum all about Body Art that you can visit. It's a great place for discussing the latest developments in body art and getting an answer to any questions you might have.
