A royally good tattoo!
A new exhibition to take place at Buckingham Palace in 2020, reveals diaries that King George V actually had a tattoo of a dragon and tiger on his arms. King George V was king of the United Kingdom and the Dominican Republic. Alongside becoming emperor of India. The actual photographs of the tattoos have never been shown, however, it is noted at during a visit to Japan when George was 16, he had the tattoos done.
Each tattoo, the dragon and tiger were placed specifically on George’s arms to signify east and west. This is an interesting story and the diaries detail further about the process of the tattoo, such as the individuals and artists they were with, the tools used. As many would assume the idea of tattoos among the royal family is strictly taboo.
Tattoo laser removal to regain help confidence for one cancer survivor
A cancer survivor has been left with a permanent blue scalp after a false hair tattoo went wrong. Marcus Miller aged 48 sadly lost all his hair during chemotherapy treatments during his battle with Testicular cancer. Marcus decided to look into getting a head tattoo, one which replicates stubble to give the illusion that he has a shaved head. Unfortunately, after the painful procedures, he was left with something far from what we wanted.
Sadly, this tattoo has brought nothing but distress to his life. Marcus feels like he can no longer live the same life he used to. The ink makes him anxious about going outside and doing his day to day activities. After spending £250 on the hair tattoo and £1,500 on a specialist wig, Marcus was approached by Stevie Barry. Who owns Laser Tattoo Removal Scotland. Stevie volunteered and promised to help Marcus, who is hopeful that he can help Marcus.

Activism gone too far?
Musician Moby has debuted some new ink, in September 2019 he was photographed with a new neck tattoo that reads “VEGAN FOR LIFE” in block font. He has posted a photo of his arms showing off his new tattoo promoting animal rights. The tattoo spans both of his arms with descending text in block capitals that says “ANIMAL RIGHTS”.

This tattoo was done by LA Ink star Kat Von D, who is also renowned for her vegan lifestyle and tattoo work.

As November is my 32 year vegan anniversary i thought i’d get a tattoo (well, technically 12 tattoos) to celebrate. I’m a vegan animal rights activist for many reasons, but ultimately because i believe at the core of my being that every animal has the right to live their own life, according to their own will. Thanks @thekatvond @highvoltagetat #veganforlife #animalrights
