When I first started looking around for references about tattoos, all I found were scholarly journal articles about how juvenile delinquents and prisoners had tattoos, or how tattoos were an indicator for psychosis. I *knew* there had to be more stuff out there. However, a quick look through the Lexis/Nexis online (fee-based) database revealed *thousands* of RECENT citations on bodyart. When a mainstream comic strip like "Cathy" mentions a navel ring, you are apt to get a lot of forgettable articles. I eventually plan to pare this list down to a quality annotated bibliography. I also plan to include in this bibliography a listing of sources that you could use for ideas on various designs.
