Macro Culture:

When a large number of people who may be a part of different backgrounds, fields or vocations come together for a common cause or idea, it is called a macro culture.  This can be better understood by knowing what are micro culture and macro culture and their differences.

A micro culture is when there is a sub culture of people belonging to a specific group, organization, profession or a community. When many people from different micro cultures or sub cultures come together in support of a different culture that brings these micro cultures together, this is called a macro culture.

Tattoo Festivals

Tattoo festivals or tattoo conventions are exhibitions or conventions for people who are interested in the art of tattooing to come together. These tattoo festivals started way back in the seventies.  Today there are Tattoo Festivals that take place all over the world. These festivals vary from being a day long festival to a few days depending on how big the festivals are. There is generally a sponsorship by local or international businesses for these events.

Generally there are different types of tattoo contests for the artists to participate in it. Nowadays these festivals include music, entertainment, tattoo artists, tattoo enthusiasts etc. In the field of tattooing there are different types of tattoos, out of these different examples of body art are showcased in these festivals.

Tattoo Festivals- a Macro Culture

Many people visit these festivals from different diverse backgrounds. Tattooing is not just some rebel culture or small subculture anymore but many people from different fields visit tattoo festivals or participate in it. These include tattoo artists, painters, performers, pinup models and just enthusiasts who like tattooing from all walks of life participate in tattoo festivals.

Mathew explains the history of body art to the people who stares at him, especially for the kids. He is a person who treats his body and god equal, like for Christians the god Jesus, for him his body. Actually, it was his uncle and father’s tattoos which inspired Mathew a lot. His first tattoo is a British bull dog, which he got tattooed when he was 16 years old. Scorpions, snakes, vampires, eyeballs will be the major portion of his body art. He is a person who takes the opinion of the physicians beforehand to avoid the risks involved in the tattooing. Recently he consulted an optician while tattooing the white part of his eye.

Most offensive tattoos celebrities wore

Most offensive tattoos celebrities wore

You might think that there is an ‘all good factor’ about these cute girls and hunk men! But it is probably not so. Celebrities have often been surrounded by stupid things hovering around! The latest threat to these celebrities is the fact that now their fans have started hooking up their eyes onto their favorite celebrity tattoos. Listed below are some of the worst and possibly, the most offensive celebrity tattoos ever!

· Amada Seyfried’s nickname

A recent turn-on that Amanda has faced is regarding her sweet nick-name, inked onto her pretty ankle. You won’t be able to clearly see it! But take a close look and you will find that Amanda’s nick-name is actually Minge! Now let me explain what Minge actually means. It is an English slang that signifies the female genitalia! Now is that not really offensive?

1

· Angelina Jolie’s love

This beautiful lady has a lot of fame and fancy about her! And equivalent is the amount of cloud of personal flings! While Billy Bob had been fortunate about spending quite some time with Angie, his name, it seems is more fortunate! Even after breaking off from her former husband, Jolie still has his name inked onto her arm! Shall we call it retrospection or offensive foolishness?

2

· Dean McDermott’s semi nude wife

The third, most hilarious one is that this actor’s love for his wife has prompted him to ink her on his arm in just the attire he would love to see her in! But he should have realized that there are certain thing that are better kept private! The star recently flaunted Tori clad in a bra! That is seemingly offensive! Well, prospective happy realization Dean!

5 Cool Ambigram Tattoos

In the tattoo world however, ambigrams would include all those trendy ones that would look same from both sides! Sometimes that would mean exactly the opposites too! Let’s take a look at the coolest ambigrams available!

For those who wish to celebrate their ex’s ditching them can definitely go for the ‘Loyalty-Betrayal’ symbol. An exemplary tattoo in itself, it has got a lot of power in it! And most importantly, it is stunning to mark how people carve out wonderful art forms to express their emotions!

2

· True love

Well, this tattoo is not exactly what literal ambigrams stand for. But yet the words, ‘True’ and ‘Love’ would look pretty much the same! You need to give a long glance at it to understand the underlying phrase. Again, a wonderful combination and highly appreciable!

3

· Truth hurts

‘Truth hurts’ – doesn’t it hold true for the entire Universe? Most people wouldn’t dare display it.

The effect would be completely stunning!

4

· Pain-love

Another truth we all know is that love is painful. Despite this we fall in love! So, if you have experienced that characteristic pain in your life, express it with this amazing tattoo! This ambigram again would hold eyeballs still! Another miracle from the world of tattoo artists!

Village board repeals tattoo ban

Posted by Admin in Tattoo Blog on 03 6th, 2013

Village board repeals tattoo ban

The village of Caledonia recently witnessed official cancellation of an ordinance that led to the official ban of all tattoo establishments in the area. Tattoos are quite in trend these days but the village board had passed an ordinance that imposed an effective ban on every tattoo establishment. This Monday the Caledonia Village board sat again and voted in the favor of repealing the ordinance. This lifting of the official ban is due to the continuous efforts of one person and that is Eve Thielen. Some of the people believe that this decision will result in even less folks opting for traditional tattoos.

Key+West+Lifts+Ban+Tattoo+Parlors+1T23J8qzWlXl

Eve Thielen happens to be the owner of a tanning spa in the area which is known as Vacation tanning spa. She has extended an offer to provide services such as cosmetic micro pigmentation plus tattoo removal to the people. According to Eve Thielen she will have all the things required by the coming summer and can extend these facilities by then. One of the new services extended by Eve is tattoo removal and other than that her spa will also extend the facility of micro pigmentation. Cosmetic micro pigmentation is the process in which the process of tattoo making is utilized to apply permanent makeup.

 

This makeup can be like applying eye liner for life and similar things. Eve Thielen said that she is in need of a supplement source of income as the tanning place is not doing well as it used to. The tanning industry has shown signs of downfall and that is why Eve is looking for alternate measures. She was however shocked to know about the ordinance passed by the village board that lay a ban on the tattoo places. Eve Thielen however considers her services different from that of a typical tattoo parlor.

ray-ban-glassess-tattoo

The Caledonia village board took a unanimous vote on this Monday and reached a verdict to lift the ban they imposed on the tattoo establishments. This new development that came as pleasant news for Eve Thielen will prove to be good news for other traditional tattoo establishments as well. The village attorney Elaine Ekes wrote a letter to the Caledonia village board in which she mentioned that the previous regulation on tattoo places was way too much restrictive and some reasonable restrictions will help in properly restricting the future tattoo establishments to the commercial districts.

Tattoo artist Dick Cherry has lasting influence

Posted by Admin in Tattoo Blog on 03 4th, 2013

Tattoo artist Dick Cherry has lasting influence

He is primarily a graphic designer and does not sport ant kind of real tattoos or body art but he designs temporary tattoos for the different characters in the movies. Dick Cherry’s amazing works can be seen in supernatural thrillers such as “Mama” and he has also done work in action movies like “The last stand”. He likes the idea of a tattoo but not on his own body. Dick Cherry said that he is not capable of keeping the same painting on the wall for a very long time so having a body art or tattoo on his body for the entire life is out of question.

 

Dick Cherry however considers the art of tattoo making a wonderful art form and is intrigued by the idea of creating tattoos that will look wonderful on other people and characters. Dick Cherry is the name that he is fondly known as but his real name happens to be Lee Richard Gren. Dick Cherry developed fondness for art in a very young age and it was all thanks to the G.I.Joe sketches that his mom made on the lunch bags. He adopted his artist name when he got to Los Angeles and began designing rock posters.

DickcherrysPainting

It was in the year 2009 when he got his big break as he was approached by his friend who was employed in Tinsley Studio to design for the next movie of Walt Disney. Tinsley Studio recognized the wonderful artist in him and offered Dick Cherry a full time job. As per Dick Cherry a tattoo is a wonderful medium to explain the qualities of a particular character. The tattoos designed by Dick Cherry suits the people just fine and they are great help when a lot of people require tattoos in a particular scene.

l

These tattoos look good as real when nicely applied on the skin and serve the purpose of real tattoos wherever required. Human skin is obviously much different from that of a canvas and therefore special attention have to be paid while designing the tattoos. There are many other things as well that Dick Cherry has to consider and remember while making tattoos for the movie characters. Dick Cherry is a wonderful tattoo artist and his designed tattoos sure look great on the people and no one could make out that they are not real.
