I remember saying that the Princess Diana sucking a **** with Dodi written on it was the most offensive tattoo ever but for some these Swastika’s come close (you can read more about the background to this symbol over at Bizarre who have an great interview). That said there is no questioning the second meaning of the Swastika in more recent times.
Canada’s ManWoman has over 200 Swastika tattoos and has surprisingly never been beaten up – which would also be wrong (clearly). His choice of wearing a yellow g-string is pretty darn offensive too, and as for the haircut…
Vice magazine are predictably jumping on the bandwagon with this exhibition of art inspired by Where The Wild Things Are – and more importantly the work of Maurice Sendak. Rather brilliantly you can download a Vice: Where The Wild Things Are Mini-mag here too.
This is really dark and somewhat sad – a surprisingly shocking gallery consisting of 35 portraits of the world’s most prolific serial killers.
See the full gallery, with profile information, online at Life Magazine.
What a BRILLIANT and inspired idea from Print Magazine. They approached four design and packaging firms to tackle the concept: If marijuana was legal how would it be packaged?

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s strangest of them all?
This awesome gallery was from Bizarre’s coverage of the Alternative Miss Word Concert, the dream child of sculptor Andrew Logan. Word is he was inspired by Crufts, yet the people in these images look far from dog-like. To be honest all I can think right now is fucking hell I had better up the ante for Camp Bestival. I have 5 days to pull something out of the bag!
Vice Magazine came over all National Geographic for their latest issue with a brilliant article about Japan’s Battleship Island (Hashima Island), found an hour’s sail from the port of Nagasaki in Japan. It rocks (no pun intended) as well as any abandoned creepy island can do.
From 1887-1974 it was a coal mining facility owned by Mitsubishi Motors, and one of the most densely populated place on earth. Over 13,000 people crammed into every square kilometre of its residential high-risers. When the mine closed there was no longer any reason to live in the mini urban nightmare it had become and almost overnight the entire population fled back to the mainland. Battleship Island was left to rot.
It illegal to go anywhere near the place as it’s beyond restoration and totally unsafe. So thank you to Vice Magazine for these amazing images and bribery of Fisherman skills enabling them to reach it in the first place.
Stunning images from Cent, a bi-annual publication that celebrates creativity. One of the best shoe editorials I have ever seen.
