Tattoos have appealed to me ever since I was kid gazing at the artwork running over Tony Danza’s arms on “Who’s the Boss”. In the time since then Mr.Danza has had his ink lasered off and an untold number of sorority girls and soccer moms have gone under the needle. Tattoos don’t carry the same outsider’s brand they once did. You can literally go to the mall and get one.

Artist and tattoo aficionado Shawn Barber‘s portraits do something to remind me of what Ink means to people who really care and who aren’t just going through some phase or trying to appear hip. Barber’s latest book, Forever & Ever, continues to reflect his fascination with tattoo culture and the authenticity and dedication some rare souls still have for Ink.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
