    James gave Maxim the exclusive first look at his Trump gun, seen above in all its appropriately gilded glory. He also talked about his company, Jesse James Firearms Unlimited (that’s JJFU for short), designing firearms for the military, guns versus motorcycles, and, somewhat unexpectedly, his affection for the 1971 cult movie Harold and Maude.

    Chicago singer is using technology – both new and old – to hear her late grandmother’s voice whenever she wants. Sakyrah Angelique got a tattoo under her left collar bone that an app can read using her cellphone’s camera.

    The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said she was "honored," joking, "This makes it significantly less awkward that I've had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years." Saturday Night Live castmember Pete Davidson on Friday posted a photo on Instagram indicating that he got a tattoo of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Accompanying the picture of the ink, Davidson said the "tattoo of [his] hero" was meant to be a Christmas gift for Clinton. "Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe," he added. The picture is the only photo on his verified Instagram...

    Did you know that anyone can legally collect original art? Rich or poor, we all appreciate beauty. Art in all its forms is an expression of the artist’s imagination, as he or she sees the world and its denizens. And yet, individual perception of any art is subjective. Each person’s idea of beauty varies according to experience, taste, and emotional response to any work of art. For example, if a 3-year-old draws a stick figure self-portrait with an enormous head, tiny arms and legs, and a huge smile, the parents or teachers have the power to encourage the young artist...

    For a variety of personal and professional reasons, I did an epic amount of travel in the last year, across thousands of miles and several states, and there was one cultural constant: Everywhere I went were lots of people with tattoos.And it’s not just that people have tattoos, it’s the tattoos they have. At one point, I found myself in Breckenridge, gawking at the majestic Rocky Mountain scenery—imagine the “Sound of Music,” only swap Julie Andrews singing with a middle-aged dad yelling at the kids to stop complaining about the long drive. The view of the mountain valley was...
  • Teen Says Tattoo Covering Half His Face Is Making it Hard to Find Work

    Mark Cropp just wants to to get a job and support his family, but something unique is holding him back. A giant tattoo saying “DEVAST8” covers half of his face, and, perhaps not surprisingly, it’s off-putting for potential employers. The teenager, born in Oamaru in the southern part of the country, told the New Zealand Herald he had it inked a few months ago, while drunk on homebrew in a jail cell in Christchurch, New Zealand.

    Jerusalem, Jul 9, 2017 / 04:02 pm (CNA).- In the Old City of Jerusalem it's hard to escape the ancient history that's still alive within its walls. A simple smartphone search can send you on a walk to a centuries-old shop, bring you to the steps of a millennium-old Church, or lead you past the 3,000 year-old Temple Mount – all bursting with people and energy. But it's only within the stone walls of Razzouk Ink that the modern pilgrim can have that history etched onto his or her body for the rest of their lives. And Christian pilgrims have...

    Press Democrat ^ | 19 Mar 2017
    Sonoma tattoo artist Shotsie Gorman and his wife, Kristine, decided to get a little political for their third annual Ugly Tattoo Contest, where some 15 people competed Sunday for the rare honor of having certifiably bad body art. As in past iterations of the event, contestants were judged by a panel of tattoo artists who awarded cash for cover-up work to a few winners. But this year’s contest at B&V Whiskey Bar & Grille in Sonoma served another timely purpose: Funds from a raffle went to support Planned Parenthood Northern California, as the national organization faces the threat of losing...

The evidence — tattoos on Jong-nam’s body that match his documented history — will enable investigators to draw direct links between the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and the body that has been lying in the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL)’s morgue since Feb 15.

    Planned Parenthood supporters in Brooklyn, New York lined up outside a tattoo parlor Wednesday to show their support for the abortion chain with permanent ink. According to the Huffington Post, several tattoo artists in Brooklyn donated their time and offered discount tattoos to raise money for Planned Parenthood. The event, “Tattoo To Protect Your Parts,” included suggested tattoos showing women protesting, coat hangers and the slogan “My body, my choice.” The report said “hundreds” lined up outside the Magic Cobra Tattoo Society in Greepoint, which hosted the pro-abortion fundraiser, but only 80 were able to get tattoos in the time...

    Some Chargers fans were so dedicated to the team that along with wearing Bolts gear, they also sport tattoos inspired by the NFL team. But with the team deciding to move from San Diego to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, many San Diego residents are now calling themselves "former" fans. When the team announced its big move Thursday, some angry fans threw away their jerseys in a growing pile outside of Chargers Park Thursday. One person was even arrested for setting their jersey on fire. Other former fans are now taking their Chargers' gear to the Sports Arena to...

    Regret, job searches and changing rules within the military are fueling tattoo removals. The industry has grown at faster pace than ever before and it's estimated to be worth $83 billion within two-years. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 46-percent of millennials have removed tattoos before entering the job market. The technology to remove tattoos has also come a long way since the 1990's. La Mesa doctor Ellyn Levine said she has been removing more tattoos than ever before, and uses the most most effective method there is today. "I think the technology has advanced literally in...

The robbery happened in west Columbus.

    5 Ways Law Enforcement Will Use Tattoo Recognition Technology - Electronic Frontier Foundation June 2, 2016 | By Dave Maass and Aaron Mackey and Soraya Okuda 5 Ways Law Enforcement Will Use Tattoo Recognition Technology There's an action movie cliché in which a cop inspects the body of a felled assassin or foot soldier and discovers a curious tattoo that ultimately leads to a rogue black-ops squadron, a secret religious sect, or an underground drug trafficking ring. The trope isn’t entirely Hollywood fantasy, but the reality of emerging tattoo recognition technology is closer to a dystopian tech thriller. Soon,...

    If you’ve ever been to a music festival, sports stadium or any other crowded event, you may have been concerned about carrying a purse or wallet, which can not only be cumbersome, but can make you the target of pickpockets. And the alternative of carrying a solitary plastic credit card isn’t much better since they can easily slip out of your pocket. Those concerns might disappear in the not-so-distant future, thanks to technology being developed for ultra-thin, contactless payment stickers similar to temporary tattoos. MC10, a healthcare technology company, is developing tattoo wearables that can affix to a payer’s body...

    Tattooing portraits of presidents is also a thing people do. You only have to run a quick image search to find hundreds of President Obama tattoos, with varying attention to detail. It's less common, however, to find tattoos of presidential candidates. There just aren't that many tattoos of Al Gore or John McCain out there. At least based on my 12-second Google search. But that didn't deter 33-year-old Justin Smith, a campaign volunteer for Hillary Clinton. Smith explained that Clinton had been his "hero for 23 years," in between answering phones at the Hillary for 2016 campaign headquarters in Charleston,...
