From the Tumblr Shopped Tattoos, wherein clean cut and not so clean cut famous folk are tatted up good and proper.
In 2010, world traveller Bill Passman had a blank map of the world tattooed on his back with a view to colouring in the countries he’d already visited [pic2] (and all those he’s visited since [pic3]).
He visited Ireland (and Norway) in the Summer of 2007.
Passman is currently working his was through India, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
Director Alex Nicholson’s first film is a dark short featuring South London tattooist Duncan X reminiscing about his life and work.
As his tattoos materialise (VFX by MPC motion design studio):
…the subject matter becomes lighter and the viewer warms to him- his tattoos become part of his story, rather than the usual vehicle for judgment.
Has to be Photoshopped, right?

Bangkok. Thailand, yesterday.
Aidan Murphy and his best friend Paul Quinn are almost finished on their 15,000km cycle from Dublin to Sydney to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society and the Alzheimers Society (€24k raised to date). They have been cycling for almost 7 months now and they are due to reach Sydney on the 20th of April 2013.
On reaching Bangkok, the boys got a bit emotional about the whole thing. At some ungodly hour, it was decided to mark the occasion with a tattoo on Paul’s left a*s cheek. The next (seriously hungover) morning both faces and bum cheeks were red when reasilation hit home as to what they had done… We are trying to help raise as much money for their two charities before the trip ends. The trip is entirely funded by Paul and Aidan’s own funds so every single cent is going to the charities.
