This August 12th marks an important milestone.... it's the 5th anniversary of my start as the Body Art Editor at Bellaonline.com! It was the summer of 2002, 5 years ago this Sunday, that I posted my very first article. The site only had a few dozen visitors a month. Now we're in the hundreds of thousands! The popularity of tattooing has just kept going up the whole time I've been here writing, and I suspect that our futures will be even more colorful than the present. To all my readers, thanks so much for visiting, writing to me and for just being body art enthusiasts!
