Fight Against Maturity

No wedding bells. Lots of facial tattoos though.

A man described by Utah authorities as Salt Lake County’s Public Enemy No. 1 was arrested when he came into a courthouse to get married. Uintah County Sheriff’s Lt. John Laursen said someone recognized Frank Paul Reyos, 27, when he arrived Tuesday at Ute Tribal Court in Fort Duchesne…

Reyos, who is wanted on a no-bail fugitive warrant for aggravated robbery by the Salt Lake County Metro Gang Unit, was arrested without incident…

Police said he was recognized due to his many facial tattoos, including a spiderweb on his forehead.

A retired history teacher is donating his tattooed body to an art gallery. Geoff Ostling, 65, is virtally covered in colourful depictions of exotic flowers after a 15 year collaboration with acclaimed cult tattooist, eX de Merci.

Covering every part of his body, save for his face, neck and parts of his forearms, Mr Ostling’s tattoos are on the theme of “all the flowers of a Sydney garden”.

He said: “I wanted something unique so I thought about a garden of plants, of natives and imported flowers, what you would find in a Sydney garden with a distant view of the city from Heartbreak Hill.”

Mr Ostling has pledged to donate his skin to Canberra’s National Gallery after his death.

You can’t go to Oklahoma to get your eyeball tattoo

A new form of body art has Oklahoma lawmakers working to ban the practice before it moves to the state. It’s called eyeball tattooing. Even tattoo shops across the metro don’t know what would propel someone to do something like this, but they say it’s unneeded legislation. Lawmakers argue that it’s a public health issue.

If you put lipstick on tattoo a pig it’s still a pig

Tattooed pigs make art

An artist is preparing to exhibit pigs tattooed with Louis Vitton logos and designs in China. Wim Delvoye, a Belgian living in Beijing, raised and tattooed eight pigs himself – two of them with LV artwork, reports People’s Daily.

The Shanghai Exhibition Centre has agreed to put the pigs on display in a temporary pig pen for the upcoming 2008 Contemporary Art Exhibition, on condition the pigs don’t create an unpleasant odour.
