There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.
~ Lord Byron

Art is not a thing; it is a way.
~ Elbert Hubbard

Tattoed and Wicked

Many people feel an attraction to tattooed girls which make them have an image of being "Wicked" but lets keep in mind this is not an accurate description of the personality of each of them. Each girl who enjoys the art of tattooing has its reason other than to enjoy art in order to make the decision to have multiple designs in much of the body in addition to enjoying the attention and attraction they cause.


It is good to be able to enjoy a very ancient art in all its facets and styles. Each tattoo is unique and each person has a different meaning. Every day we see people with one or two in various parts of the body and many tend to be small in great majority of cases.


If we realize we will see that apart from being just a symbol, it is an example of freedom of expression and also expresses independence (these days), we can also realize that many tattoos are based on the kind of environment and culture of the wearer and although it is an art practiced around the globe can be seen in detail and also know a lot about the person who has it.


Tattoos can be seen in many different ways, which describe the person as they live or the things they enjoy. Not necessarily have to be an involvement or an obligation in one race or culture as there are people who tend to have tattoos from other cultures without living in certain parts of the world but nevertheless tend to have some knowledge about this foreign culture which is caused by the admiration for the lifestyle, including religious culture which is admired and respected.


Today it is almost impossible to see someone without a tattoo and surprised to find a person without one which sometimes impresses as the acceptance by the art is more than in ancient times. Tattoos on girls are more common these days thanks to this acceptance. Logo Animated

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it.

Tattoo History - 'Maori Moko'

1) Mythology.

According to Maori mythology, tattooing commenced with a love affair between a young man by the name of Mataora (which means "Face of Vitality") and a young princess of the underworld by the name of Niwareka. One day however, Mataora beat Niwareka, and she left Mataroa, running back to her father's realm which was named "Uetonga". Mataora, filled with guilt and heartbreak followed after his princess Niwareka. After many trials, and after overcoming numerous obstacles, Mataora eventually arrived at the realm of "Uetonga", but with his face paint messed and dirty after his voyage. Niwareka's family taunted and mocked Mataora for his bedraggled appearance. In his very humbled state, Mataora begged Niwareka for forgiveness, which she eventually accepted. Niwareka's father then offered to teach Mataora the art of tattooing, and at the same time Mataora also leant the art of Taniko - the plaiting of cloak borders in many colours. Mataora and Niwareka thus returned together to the human world, bringing with them the arts of ta moko and taniko.

2) Archaeological evidence.

According to archaeological evidence, tattooing came to New Zealand from Eastern Polynesian culture. The bone chisels used for tattooing can be found in archaeological sites of various ages in New Zealand, as well as in some early Eastern Polynesian sites. Although the Maori practised tattooing, there is no evidence that the Moriori people did. In New Zealand, It is in the early sites that the widest chisel blades are found, and this lends evidence to the theory that there was possibly a preference towards rectilinear tattoo patterns in earlier times. The head was considered the most sacred part of the body, and because tattooing caused blood to run the tattoo craftsmen, or "tohunga-ta-oko", were very tapu persons. All high-ranking Maori were tattooed, and those who went without tattoos were seen as persons of no social status. Tattooing commenced at puberty, accompanied by many rites and rituals. In addition to making a warrior attractive to women, the tattoo practice marked both rites of passage and important events in a person's life. There were certain prohibitions during the tattooing process, and for the facial tattoo in particular sexual intimacy and the eating of solid foods were prohibited. In order to overcome this, liquid food and water was drained into a wooden funnel, to ensure that no contaminating product came into contact with the swollen skin. This was also the only way the tattooed person could eat until his or her wounds healed. The full faced tattoo was very time consuming, and a good tattoo craftsman would carefully study a person's bone structure before commencing his art.

3) The Moko (tattoo) generally has the following significance :

Upper forehead = rank
a) The left and right areas, above the eyes = position
b) The left and right areas, just beneath the eyes = genealogy
c) The far left and right areas, leading to the ear = marriage(s)
d) Left and right areas, between the nose and lips = signature
e) The left and right areas, just under the ear = profession
f) The left and right areas of the chin = power and standing
g) The left and right areas leading onto the neck = position at birth

The tattoo instrument was a bone chisel, either with a serrated or an extremely sharp straight edge. The first stage of the tattoo commenced with the graving of deep cuts into the skin. Next, a chisel was dipped into a sooty type pigment such as burnt Kauri gum or burnt vegetable caterpillars, and then tapped into the skin. It was an extremely painful and long process, and often leaves from the native Karaka tree were placed over the swollen tattoo cuts to hasten the healing process. Wars were frequent, and the warriors had little time for recuperation. During the tattooing process, flute music and chant poems were performed to help soothe the pain. Although the tattoos were mainly facial, the North Auckland warriors included swirling double spirals on both buttocks, often leading down their legs until the knee. The women were not as extensively tattooed as the men. Their upper lips were outlined, usually in dark blue. The nostrils were also very finely incised. The chin moko was always the most popular, and continued to be practised even into the 1970s.

The native people of New Zealand (Maori) are world famous for their tattooing. Though they do not cover as much of the body as many of the South Pacific people, the Maori developed an unusual style of tattooing. Working mostly on the face (Moko) and buttocks, the Maori took their wood carving technique and applied it to tattooing. With this they achieved a unique chiseled design that ink was then rubbed into. After the Europeans arrived in the 1700s, they brought metal to these islands and the Maori began a more conventional style of puncture tattooing. Amazingly enough this tattooing can still be seen in many museums around the world, not just in drawings or photographs, but actually in the skin. The Maori had an unusual custom of removing and preserving the heads of their tattooed chiefs after death. These heads would stay with the family and be an honored possession. Until Europeans began to visit New Zealand and to settle there, heads were of sentimental interest only and had no commercial value. The museums' and collectors' desire to possess them as curiosities for caused a great demand to spring up. Although reluctant to part with the heads, the Maori were eager to obtain firearms, ammunition and iron implements. So a brisk traffic ensued and the demand began to exceed the supply. The Maori were known to fight one another in disputes over land and property. The heads of these war victims became part of the trade supply. This considerably reduced the population of New Zealand while stocking the museums of Europe with specimens of barbaric face-culture. As a commercial enterprise this traffic was not without monetary profit as well. The first dried head ever possessed by a European was acquired on January 20, 1770. It was brought by Mr. (later Sir Joseph) Banks, who was with Captain Cook's expedition as a naturalist, and it was one of four brought on board the Endeavour for inspection. It was the head of a youth of fourteen or fifteen, who had been killed by a blow that fractured his skull. The three other heads, not for sale, seemed to have false eyes and ornaments in the ears. The first head taken to Sydney, for which there is any record, was brought from Fouveaux Straits in 1811. It was obtained by theft, and the boat crew's heads were nearly cut off for "utu" (revenge.) In 1814 heads were certainly not yet an ordinary article to trade at Sydney, but by 1829 it appears that preserved heads were not uncommon. The arrival of the first Europeans were to bring about dramatic changes to their environment. Stone impliments, greenstone adze and similar tools became quickly cast aside when the advantages of metal, steel and iron, became known to them.

The Dutch explorer, Abel Tasman, 'found' New Zealand on the 13th December, 1642. Sailing aboard the war-yacht Zeehaven accompanied by the Dutch flute Heemskerck he wrote: "Towards noon we saw a large, high lying land bearing southeastward to us at about 20 leagues distance; (the Hokitika area) we saw no human beings; no smoke; nor can the people here have any boats, since we did not see any sign of them." Sailing on to Golden Bay, Tasman saw smoke from fires along the coast lit by the maori. He anchored in the bay and in the evening two canoes came out to the ship. They made no attempt to come aboard. Early next morning another canoe came out with thirteen people aboard. They were double canoes, two prows side by side. Eleven more canoes followed, completely surrounding his ship. Suddenly and without warning there was trouble. Tasman sent a small boat out to greet the local canoes. One of the maori canoes deliberately rammed the boat and swung alongside, when three of his crew members were cut down by the maori and killed, another mortally wounded. Seeing the cannon aboard Zeehaven being run out through the portals, the Maori canoes made for the shore, while the guns hit and killed the Maori warriors in the rear canoe. Tasman now considered the Maori as hostile and his enemy and set sail northwards towards the Three Kings Islands to replenish his fresh water supplies. Heavy seas were running in the area and he could not get ashore through the surf with the boats and casks. He decided to weigh anchor and set sail from New Zealand February, 1643. His journal and charts of the southern oceans made a note to warn all mariners to regard the natives of this land as 'hostile'.

Dedicating a tattoo to someone loved or admired.

Many people decide to get a tattoo with the face of a loved one because for them it shows the love and how special they are in their lives. The biggest challenge is finding an artist who can project a clear picture of who the person is and is a bit devastating when someone very important in the family question "Who is this person?" not realizing that the intention of the tattoo is the image of either the mother, father or son of the person who asked who he was.


Going for a situation like this can be quite traumatic because the person who did the tattoo had confidence in the artist who did the work. Having regrets about a tattoo is not something new and often there are people who complain about certain artist's work and are unhappy about the lack of knowledge regarding the quality of talent that particular artist have.


Some people choose to tattoo the image of a celebrity (either actual or legendary) and the rules when it comes to do portraits do not change. It's hard to believe when a person recommend an artist without ever having been tattooed by him, and many people fall into the trap and when they make the mistake that then leads to a job poorly done they have no choice but to cover with a tattoo over it to cover it up. (cover up DUH).


When getting a tattoo (not only in terms of images of people) one has to keep in mind that it is necessary to honestly show what having a tattoo means to us, especially if it is the image of a loved one. The person being tattooed has a responsibility to investigate the work of an artist and decide for themselves whether they like the work of that artist it or not. Logo Animated

Tattoo of pet, why not?

People often show the great love they have for their pets in such impressive way they go get a tattoo based on the picture of that animal that becomes part of their lives and is ideal for families or even a person who needs a real good friend which often hard find in a human.

Pets become part of people's lives to the point where they can change the fate of a person for good and they make people have a greater respect for what is the right to life and compassion for defenseless creatures. Pets are there at all times and although many people do not want to accept those creatures feel and suffer, we all know they have a bigger heart and are more sincere than people who do not take into consideration to prevent abuse and mistreatment of them.

Catherine Zeta Jones Biography

Catherine Zeta Jones Biography
Catherine Zeta Jones - sexy celebrity BiographyCatherine Zeta-Jones

Birth Date: January 25, 1969
Birth Place: Swansea, Wales

Catherine Zeta-Jones hails from Mumbles, Wales (a tiny fishing village just outside Swansea in the UK), where she was born September 25, 1969. Her name stems from two different grandmothers; one grandmother is named Catherine, while the other is "Zeta", named after a ship Catherine's grandfather sailed on.

Although Zeta- Jones was not known in the U.S. until her role in The Mask of Zorro in 1998, she was a well-known star in her native U.K. Zeta-Jones played the lead in a production of the musical Annie at 11 years of age, and starred in a West End production of Bugsy Malone two years later. At age 17, Zeta-Jones nabbed the lead role in 42nd Street after having moved to London in order to pursue an acting career. Once the show closed, Zeta-Jones traveled to France, where she received the lead role in French director Phillippe De Broca's Scheherazade, her feature film debut.

Zeta-Jones' big break came upon her return to England in 1991, when she became a regular on the hugely popular British television series The Darling Buds of May. Her role as the eldest daughter of a farm family increased her star status in the U.K. The price celebrities must pay is being featured in the tabloids, and Zeta-Jones became a tabloid favorite, constantly hounded by the paparazzi. Once the intrusiveness of the media became unbearable, she decided to take her life and career across the Atlantic.

Although a sex symbol and celebrity in the U.K. , it took a while for Zeta-Jones to break into the Hollywood scene. In 1994, she landed the lead role in CBS's Return of the Native, and gave a remarkable performance in her role as Catherine in the miniseries Catherine the Great. It wasn't until Zeta-Jones' role in the four-hour television docudrama Titanic that Americans would soon learn why she was famous across the pond, one year before Leo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet came along.

Steven Spielberg noticed her in the mini-series and thought she would be perfect for the female lead in The Mask of Zorro, which Spielberg was producing. Spielberg knew what he was talking about, and he wasn't the only one who was impressed; audiences and critics liked what they saw in the role opposite Antonio Banderas. Audiences probably wondered where this beauty popped up from, since they had never before heard of the Welsh star, who was often mistaken for Spanish.

At the 1998 Oscars, Zeta-Jones stood out on the red carpet, looking ravishing. If she wasn't yet noticed after The Mask of Zorro, her appearance at the Oscars made head turns.

The summer of 1999, Zeta-Jones appeared opposite Sean Connery in the summer action film Entrapment. The same summer, Zeta-Jones took on the role of Theo in The Haunting, Dreamworks' adaptation of the 1963 horror of the same name, joining cast members Liam Neeson and Lili Taylor.

Actor Michael Douglas first met Zeta-Jones at a Film Festival, and apparently told her that he wants to father her children during their first date. As if a premonition, Zeta-Jones married Douglas in November 2000, and had their first child, Dylan Michael. The married couple actually share the same birthdate, albeit not the same year.

Zeta-Jones was recently seen in the comedy High Fidelity, starring John Cusack, and the Oscar-winning movie Traffic. She was also seen with Julia Roberts in America's Sweethearts.

Her role in the musical Chicago brought her an Oscar (this makes the Douglas family the only couple in entertainment where both husband and wife have won an Oscar). She was 9 months pregnant with their second child at the Oscar's, so soon we'll see the new member of the family.


Tattoos on the back

The back is one of the places in the body where one can create a mural that takes a lot of detail and which in turn serves to give free rein to the imagination in order to achieve a unique design with lots of details.

There are people who get tattoos drawn in black and white as some people also take the opportunity to make a super dark background while the details are applied either bright colors that highlight the design and allow it to stand out from the rest.

By deciding to get a tattoo that covers all or most of the back one has to keep in mind that the chosen design is truly what the person wants in order to avoid regrets. Logo Animated


What for many people may seem extreme, for others it is something worthy of admiration. Each person chooses how far they want to go when it comes to tattoos or piercings (personal or professional reasons). Some people simply are afraid to whether painful or not. In that case I recommend to those people to just admire them and be content.

Many people choose to reach what is considered extreme in their bodies and express what for them is synonymous of freedom and to always remember that every human being can do with their bodies what they wish.

These people are people with a spirit of freedom which not everyone possesses and are those who can carry out a lifestyle that not many people dare not to express. Do not be fooled by something visible to reach a conclusion that is not as successful in terms of "white-collar" people because many of them have their bodies tattooed or pierced (perhaps both). It all depends on each individual. 

Just because you don't see it don't mean is not there, just remember that.

Angelina Jolie

No matter what Angelina does with her body is always a cause for speculation and admiration. Not everyone knows to understand a person like her and it is obvious that nobody was prepared for it, that's the reason why ignorant people in the past or with a limited mentality who judged and pointed her used to try destroying her career with their pressure. As always and like the professional she is managed to have the ability to handle a difficult moment and turn it into something that everyone can see a positive way. She is the one who really knows what goes on in her kingdom and who is amused by the occurrences of unscrupulous people who have nothing to do with their time and only dedicate to creating stories to sell a magazine.

Angelina's tattoos might look simple, but lets not forget they always have a meaning that is not only important to her, apparently so is for the media.

Flaming Cross Tattoo Design

Angel or Cherub?

Whether for religious reasons or because they are cute, many people choose to have a tattoo of one of them.

There are many ways to interpret what we say or what each person means to have one of these. As long as you have in mind to find an artist who can design reflect the message we want to give. 

It is not difficult to find the design and the important thing is to have an accurate creation of what is desired.
