Budweiser celebrates boldness in South Korea to tackle stigma around tattoo culture
In a new advertising campaign, Budweiser is hoping to challenge the stigma around tattoos and tattooists in South Korea. The conservative country currently doesn’t allow tattoos to be drawn without special permission from the government, forcing the tattooists to go underground and the tattooed to cover up in public. The Budweiser campaign is called ‘Be a King’, and it uses film, photography and art, along with a limited-edition can and profiles of 12 young Koreans who have broken the law to get tattoos. The aim is to help shift mainstream attitudes by revealing the contribution these artists make to Korean cultural identity.

Woman’s stunning tattoo embraces mastectomy scars
A breast cancer survivor has had a large tattoo inked across her double mastectomy scars in a message of positivity about her new body. She started the tattoo two years after her surgery when she decided it was time to celebrate the scars and stop hiding from the world. And it was not just any artist who helped transform her body into an incredible work of art; it was none other than David Beckham’s ‘angel’ tattooist, Louis Molloy. Around 24 hours have gone into the creation of the tattoo so far, and she’s already considering what to get next. She even made sure to capture the remarkable transformation in a video. Having tattoos inked over significant scars is a growing trend, and a fantastic way for people to celebrate their survival of whatever caused the scarring. People have done the same over scars from self-harm and injuries from accidents or even combat.
