Iraq Tattoo

Western influence? Parents all over the world freak out when their teenagers tattoo themselves with home made needles and architects ink.

Miscellanea;

~ Middle eastern tribal tattooists ~ most are traditionally women.
~ Prisoners/criminals ~ a tattoo on the forehead marks some iraqi criminals, especially those who have had amputations, according to a decree issued to distinguish criminal amputees from war veteran amputees.
~ Saddam hussein ~ has a protective charm tattoo'd on one hand.


(And no i have not tattoo'd a map of Iraq upon my breast. Well not yet anyway).

Emigre, Stop! You are giving me ideas. If one day I come home with tattos similar to that picture, my husband will freak out. I will tell him it was Emigre's idea and you will be in big trouble.
