Tattoo News - June/July 2011
Artok is a great Pacific arts & news site that often includes tattoo and other forms of body art is at http://www.abc.net.au/arts/artok/bodyart/s258279.htm
Another blog worth reading for those with a serious interest in the Pacific, especially Papua New Guinea is http://masalai.wordpress.com/
One of the finer sites for collectors of Pacific art is the Holger Braun Gallery. Even if you are not in the market to buy, it’s a great site to browse.
If you are in Astoria, Oregon, check out the tattoo exhibition at the Maritime Museum: http://www.oregonlive.com/living/index.ssf/2011/04/tattoo_exhibit_in_astoria_the.html
The Museum Muluku in the Netherlands will be hosting a tattoo exhibition in September. I do not see it listed yet on their website, but there is a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=578715663#!/event.php?eid=119994431413798
In my last newsletter I included a link on the copyright case re. the incorporation of Mike Tyson’s tattoo in a major film. A more recent article on the case is at http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2011/05/human-flesh-copyright/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+wired%2Findex+%28Wired%3A+Index+3+%28Top+Stories+2%29%29 although I assume it has been resolved, as the movie has been released.
