Positive Press

There have been some well-researched and positive pieces in the press as of late, which is a nice change from the usual negativity. 

In this past week's Sunday Herald Sun, an opinion piece focussed on the increase of people getting tattooed. Rather than preaching that we're all making horrible mistakes, the writer commended people for having the guts to express themselves through body art. It's proof that you don't have to be tattooed to appreciate the art itself. 

And after this monstrosity was published, Channel 10's The Project did their research and put together this video package to clearly and concisely explain the dangers of under age and  backyard tattooing. You can view the video here [look for Wednesday, April 10: Seg 3]
