A fun, witty and sharp look on expressing yourself through tattoos and the celebrities famed for their body art.
Four years ago, I made the decision to heal from rheumatoid arthritis using cannabis. I had experienced severe RA for nearly 13 years at that time, and prescribed drugs had little effect. I became an OMMP patient in 2010, and began medicating with concentrates at the end of that year after my harvest was complete. A few years later, I began supplementing with herbs. As a disclaimer, I'm not a doctor, or a naturopath, or any type of a medical professional, and this book does NOT suggest that anyone should do any of the things I have done. This was a choice I made after experiencing what I did. I'm a witch, an empath, and a mostly self-taught herbalist. I believe everything and everyone are extensions of Source/Goddess Energy and in nonphysical form, we are one with each other. Herbs and plants that are here to nourish and heal us resonate with Goddess Energy. We need only be still and receive that knowing, that blessing, and then understand our connection to the world around us. If this serves as a beginning point for others to take charge of their own health and healing, then may Goddess bless them and guide their way.
Explore the dark subculture of 1950s tattoos!In the early 1950s, when tattoos were the indelible mark of a lowlife, an erudite professor of English--a friend of Gertrude Stein, Thomas Mann, Andre Gide, and Thornton Wilder--abandoned his job to become a tattoo artist (and incidentally a researcher for Alfred Kinsey). Bad Boys and Tough Tattoos tells the story of his years working in a squalid arcade on Chicago's tough State Street. During that time he left his mark on a hundred thousand people, from youthful sailors who flaunted their tattoos as a rite of manhood to executives who had to hide their passion for well-ornamented flesh. Bad Boys and Tough Tattoos is anything but politically correct. The gritty, film-noir details of Skid Row life are rendered with unflinching honesty and furtive tenderness. His lascivious relish for the young sailors swaggering or staggering in for a new tattoo does not blind him to the sordidness of the world they inhabited. From studly nineteen-year-olds who traded blow jobs for tattoos to hard-bitten dykes who scared the sailors out of the shop, the clientele was seedy at best: sailors, con men, drunks, hustlers, and Hells Angels. These days, when tattoo art is sported by millionaires and the middle class as well as by gang members and punk rockers, the sheer squalor of Bad Boys and Tough Tattoos is a revelation. However much tattoo culture has changed, the advice and information is still sound:
