Cammy Stewart - Cammy Stewart - 30 years old. He started getting tattooed at 15 and moved on to the face at 24 - 'It's important to have a face in the Tattoo industry' Photographer Mark Leaver captures tattooed people with a deeper perspective. . . . His new collection of images, entitled 'Tattoo', is intent on redressing assumed public prejudices surrounding tattoos. The study seeks to showcase, as a passion and individual self-expression, the practise for visual body modification through inserting indelible ink into the skin's dermis layer. All the while, examining preconceived misconceptions and misunderstanding of the facial and bodyart community - as a subculture. Actor Johnny Depp once said: "My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story." Leaver allows the viewer a unique opportunity to learn about the tales behind the tattoos. The photojournalist took time to discover the fascinating background stories of each of its subjects - revealing the colourful creative characters behind the tattoos. His ensuing project presents portraits of its subjects in their home and work environment, with pets and loved ones. Recent surveys have stated a fifth of all British adults and thirty five per cent of people aged between 30-39 sport tattoos. Whilst In the USA 40 per cent of those aged 26-40 and 10 per cent between 41-64 have tattoos. Mark Leaver says: "Tattooing is more popular at the moment than it has ever been in history. This is down to many things, one of the main being that tattooing is endorsed through celebrity culture as result making them fashionable. However I wasn't interested in the thousands of people with a sleeve or back piece which they cover up when they go to work. Its facial tattoos which grabbed me and the direct confrontational nature of them. "Historically facial tattoos have had a huge amount of taboos around them.

Pineda hopes that the donation will inspire others to join the cause.
After typhoon Haiyan caused wreaked devastation in the Philippines last week, relief efforts have been ongoing. On Friday, Journey announced that they would be donating $350 000 to the typhoon relief efforts. The group’s lead singer, Arnel Pineda, who originally hails from the Philippines, had a message for his homeland. Pineda referenced the group’s most infamous hit, when he told the nation “Don’t Stop Believin’” and that “help is on the way.”
Arnel Pineda urged the people of the Philippines to hold out hope, because "help is on the way."
The considerable donation will go to the United Nations World Food Programme and should provide about 1.4 million meals. The contributors to the sizeable donation include the group’s promoter Live Nation Entertainment, Creative Artists Agency and manager John Baruck. The donation is intended to set an example for others to hopefully join the cause.

Music Midtown is growing once again with a new stage and a bigger and better line-up.
It looks like Atlanta's Music Midtown festival is on its way back up as 2013 brings us the biggest line-up since its return from a six year hiatus.
We are back to where we started with Midtown, which takes place on September 10th - 21st at Piedmont Park, as we see a 2 day, 2 stage event just like its debut in 1994. We've still got a long way to go before it's back at its peak with 3 days and 6 stages, but the line-up hasn't far off doubled from last year and another stage has been added too. The excitement when it was announced that Midtown was making its return in 2011 is hard to beat, but we reckon this year's line-up could reel in an even more impressive overall ticket sale.
