I hope everyone enjoyed the Liverpool Tattoo Convention this weekend! Since everyone seems to be cooling off from it, there isn’t much news today. However, I did find something to take up 5 minutes of your time either way. Buzzfeed has a top 55 facts about tattooing that you should check out. Yeah, some of these facts are questionable, but it’s better than you can expect from a website that doesn’t really know about tattoos. Here are some fun facts I liked from the page:
“One of the oldest recorded tattoo ink recipes consists of Egyptian pine bark, corroded bronze, vinegar, vitriol, leek juice, and insect eggs.”
“After the Lindbergh baby was kidnapped in 1932, many concerned parents got their babies tattooed in case.”
“A brothel in Cologne, Germany, offers a lifetime of free service if clients get a tattoo of the logo.”
