What am I noting today?

April 18, 2017

I hope you remembered to file.

I could not find a tattoo for the IRS or Taxes (strange?), but this graphic shows what your tattoo location (or intended location) says about you . . .

What am I celebrating on tattoo Tuesday?

March 28 is Something on a Stick Day

When I was a Girl Scout and we went camping, sometimes we took twigs, took off the bark, wrapped the end in biscuit dough and baked them over a campfire.  When they were done, we pulled them off the twigs and stuffed them with jam.  I remember them being one of the best things I had ever tasted.

I am not sure I would have the same response now.

These look good, though.

And then there are corn dogs.

What was invented on tattoo Tuesday?

March 7, 2017

Cornflakes were invented by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg as part of the health regimen at his Battle Creek Sanitarium in 1896.  Dr. Kellogg and his brother had some pretty funny ideas about health and healthy living, but the late nineteenth century was a time of plentiful ideas and experimentation that was based on wonky science.  At Battle Creek these ideas also led to the invention of flaked cereals, graham crackers, and rice krispies.

For tattoo Tuesday, the Kellogg’s rooster . . .

Kazuaki Horitomo is a California-based Japanese artist who combines two of his great passions – tattoos and cats – into one. As an illustrator and tattoo artist, Horitomo is steeped in the Japanese tradition of tebori (a technique of tattooing by hand) and his illustrations reflect that. Some of our favorites works are the humorous and surreal depictions of cats performing tebori on other cats.
