Belated news: the Second International Evian Tattoo Show 2008 took place in France last week. If you're into this sort of thing, take note of the title link for next year's show. Personally I can't see the point. It may be an art form, but it's painful and can be hazardous to your health. (Take the poster's hint!) It also costs a bomb in plastic surgeons' fees to remove the damned things, although Brits can have this done on the NHS if they convince a psychiatrist they'll crack up if their tattoos aren't removed. Why take the chance? And why pay to be an artist's canvas?
