The Piercings And Tattoos Issue

 A Letter From The Editor

Tattoos and piercings together form a new wave in body art based on practices and designs that are centuries old. Drawing between the modern and the traditional, a tattoo artist forms beautiful images on the body of a human. Piercings also can be used to elaborate or subtle effect. Of course, there are practical concerns to getting a tattoo or piercing. Is it safe? Will I regret it? This issue tries to answer a few of those common questions, and provides reminders about aftercare for some common piercings.
