Thanks to my friend B-Boy (who has sent many wonderful things over the years) for sending in these pictures from Thailand’s first (annual?) tattoo convention (see also: Sao Paulo tattoo convention photos). On the whole tattooing is remarkable similar all around the world, but still I always like seeing the subtle differences in style and interpretation in different cultures.
These and more (BME has multiple members in Thailand that were photographing that convention) will be in the next update of BME, which is currently sitting at a massive 5,000+ images. However, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, this server is having mega problems right now. A replacement is set to arrive next week, but I’m afraid something is going to crash before then so we’re working to get stuff moved. I’m very sorry to the people who are patiently waiting for updates, memberships, and so on… We are working on it.
PS. If BME goes offline for any extended periods, you can checking zentastic.com (or IAM) for more information. That’s on a different server and I’ll use it to post if I need to.
