Here’s a few highlights from Milano Tattoo Convention that took place 3-5th of February. I’ve shared plenty of photos on Flickr where the photos are also tagged with the name of artists etc, so if you’re interested in seeing more, I strongly recommend the Flickr album.
Mara Eastern said in a post on my other blog that she wanted to see some nude dudes. Well, tomorrow I’m shooting a friend (he won’t be nude – sorry Mara), so today I decided to clean the camera, test the flash, charge the batteries etc, etc. The photographer’s Mise en place. Which again led to this self-portrait.
Mise en place (French pronunciation: [mi zɑ̃ ˈplas]) is a French culinary phrase which means "putting in place" or "everything in its place." It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients (e.g., cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components) that a cook will require for the menu items that are expected to be prepared during a shift. - Wikipedia
Some old-school ink for all you tattoo lovers out there. I found this at a museum in Oslo.
Tattooing in Korea – is it legal? Is it illegal? That would be “yes” to both questions. “What? Wait. How can it be both legal and illegal at the same time?” In this interview with Korean tattoo artist Ru Hwan, we’ll find out more.
Technically speaking, tattooing is legal in Korea (yes, this article is about South Korea of course), but you’ll need to be a licensed doctor in order to perform this type of “skin surgery”.
Now imagine yourself that you’re at the end of six years of medical studies at the university, it’s time to decide which path to choose: should you become a GP, a skin specialist, a surgeon or perhaps you should go wild and chase your childhood dream of becoming a tattoo artist?
Just like in every other country in the world, people with medical degrees don’t become tattoo artists – they become doctors – and that’s a good thing, because we all need someone who might be able to cure us when we are sick, but some of us also needs creative persons that can create art on our skin every now & then.
Here’s a few of my photos from the tattoo convention in Marseille, France.

Here’s a follow-up from yesterday’s post with tattooed girls. Now you get the chance to meet some of the men I crossed paths with at Warsaw Tattoo Convention. If you would like to see all my photos from this convention, follow the link to Flickr after this gallery.

I don’t agree, but some people might use the word Transmogrify (“To change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.”) to describe tattoos. Transmogrify is the theme for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week.
