Surfing through twitter and I came across this, thought this would be a good thing to share. Big recall on White & Blue Lion,'s inks & needles.
Source: Full details here:…

"INDUSTRY, Calif. — A company out of California issued a nationwide recall on all of its tattoo ink and needles due to a bacterial contamination.

The White & Blue Lion, Incorporated in Industry, California announced Friday it was voluntarily recalling tattoo ink, needles and kits because use of the products could cause a bacterial infection, according to the United States Food and Drug Administration.

The infection could lead to sepsis, a potentially fatal complication, the FDA said in its release.

Inks and needles were sold nationwide both in kits and separately by 8Decades and White & Blue Lion, Inc. — they were sold through direct sales and online.

FDA laboratory testing found microbial bacterial contamination in both the inks and needles.

As of Friday, one illness connected to the use of the recalled products had been reported.

Consumers with any questions should contact 1-626-586-3485 Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. "

I'm having a very small tattoo design challenge.

Looking for anyone who would be interested in designing a Matryoshka (Russian) Doll for me, which may or may not be used as a tattoo.

My favorite will receive 5 points (that's all I have since I am working on a project that requires a lot of points [link] ).

All information can be seen in this journal entry: [link]

Please comment on the journal if you would like to participate. Challenge ends August 1st.

Strangeland Quote: it is like trying to find the owner of the glass slipper... yeah, in a room full of Cinderellas...


What a great movie, if anyone else knows about one of these tattoo cult classic gems, please let me know.

Hello everyone.

Thanks for accepting me to this group, salutations all round.

Thought I would christen this event by sharing a Tattoo cult classic Movie, in case you missed it. Lots of great philosophical rants regarding why people modify there bodies in the modern age and in the past et cetera, the modern primitives. One of the coolest tattoo movies ever, if you know of others let me know...

Strangeland is an American horror film released in 1998. The film was directed by John Pieplow and written by Dee Snider (yes from Twisted Sister, Snider is most famous for his role as the frontman of the heavy metal band Twisted Sister. He was ranked 83 in the Hit Parader's Top 100 Metal Vocalist of All Time). The film focuses on the body modification underground culture's rituals.

Quote: Where are the Rites of Passage today..., it must be physical, it must be painful and it must leave a mark...

Quote: I this bigger than average.. yeah that one is a bleeping monster... must be a real Aficionado eh...

Good soundtrack and good overall film, watch out you may watch it over and over again ... I have, here is the link I recommend to watch the movie for free, Shazam, I did the leg work for you ( I am watching it now, lol):


Here is a link to multiple other links to the same movie but hosted on other free sites:


and yes 1hannel is an awesome site to watch movies.

As a caveat; Snider has also penned the script to a sequel which has the working title of Strangeland: Disciple. As of January 2008, however, Snider was less than optimistic that it would ever see the light of day, saying in an interview with that he had reached a point where he should "put a sign on my website that says, 'Y’got ten million dollars? Give me a call. I’ve got the script ready to go, Robert Englund’s attached, I’m attached. If somebody’s serious and wants to make it, call me.

Hey guys n gals...

so ive been wanting tattoos for ages and still gonna have to wait a lil longer. i sorta know what i want but would be cool to get some other peoples' ideas

so 300 points to 1st place..100 to second place.
or 500 to first.. n 50 to 2nd..
havnt decided yet deppends on how many i get hehe. -- might even add some extra point sin (over 500? if u guys are really good!)

so! my idea was oriental style dragon wrapping around the top of my arm.. then its mouth opening up on the inside of my elbow..if that makes sense. then wrapped around it somehow, either around its neck or embrioded into it, i want a chain leaning to a compas just on my wrist

thats the sorta thing im looking for..and maybe a rise against logo on my stomach/side... above my hip

so if you know me, or can asume stuff about my personality from my writing etc then .. get drawing hehe

be creative.. those are what i think i want now but that might change with u guys' crazy sexy minds haha!

alright so sorry for the length of this.. just draw and link me in a private msg or comment on my page and ull prob get loads of points..also send this around n give your friends a chance

thanks x
