July 29 2006 Body Art Newsletter


Greetings, Body Art Fans!

Welcome to the early August edition of the Bellaonline Body Art Newsletter.

Dog days of summer, huh? With the heat wave that's been sweeping the US, I hope everyone's been keeping cool and making sure those tattoos don't get out in the sun too much. When the weather is especially hot, I don't recommend that people get new tattoo work. Not only does the heat add a level of exhaustion to the body, which can make getting a new tattoo really uncomfortable, but having the open wound makes soaking in water a no-no, and then it's that much harder to cool off sometimes. If you were planning on getting some new ink, I'd put it off until things cool down a bit.

The Book of the Month for August is THE WOMAN BETWEEN THE WORLDS. This novel is a mix of science fiction, mystery and horror, colored with Victorian tattooing. Come follow the tale of Vanessa, an invisible woman who wishes to be visible. As the tattooist works on her, he wonders if she actually is a woman, and if he's falling in love...

NEW ARTICLES:

The Art of Bindi
The wearing of Bindi, colorful forehead dots, originally comes from India but are now often seen worn as fashion accessories. Learn more about the history and traditions of Bindi.

Tattoo Quotes
So, what do people have to say about tattoos, really? Here are some quotations both famous and anonymous about tattooing.


BOOK REVIEW:

Japanese Tattooing Now
Whereas most Japanese tattoo books look at how the Asian style influenced the West, this new book takes a look at how Western styles have had an effect on the aesthetics of modern Japanese tattooing.


HOT LINKS:

  • Tattoo TV with PRISON BREAK - The new season is just about to start. Take a look at the most elaborate theatrical tattoo ever created.
  • Tribal Cross Designs - Here is a collection of cross designs that all blend well with the overall tattoo style called tribal.
  • Tattoo Supply - Leads for tattoo suppliers, tattoo machines and ink, how-to tattoo books, jobs for tattooists and more.

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. Recent topics include the question of one tattoo artist or many, corseting and those pesky "bumps" that often form on nose piercings. Please drop on by and show your colors!

I enjoy your feedback and welcome your questions, so if you have something to tell me, please send an e-mail or drop by the message boards! Feel free to pass this message along to family and friends who you think might be interested.
