As a happy update to our post on the French Health Ministry’s attempted ban of most colored inks, the association of professional tattooers in France, Tatouage & Partage, received a letter from health officials stating that the proposed ban was “malentendu” — a misunderstanding. You can find a copy of the letter here. According to the AFP: “The ban was “misinterpreted” by the government offices in charge of implementing it, he said, expressing relief on behalf of France’s 3,500 to 4,000 professional tattoo artists. […] The tattoo artists’ association said the problem was one of the four tables printed in the government decree announcing the ban, which listed the dyes allowed in cosmetic products…” To read the rest of this article, go to: http://www.needlesandsins.com/2013/12/color-tattoo-saved-in-france.html Read More »

Like Bugs has been copied a lot, or Guy Aitchison has been copied, or Paul Booth and so on. So as soon as it’s on the market, you can get copied. I think when I started tattooing I really liked the work of guys like Guy Aitchison or Bugs or Paul Booth. Even if it’s not my style, I really liked Bugs’ style.
