Gino Dartnall - Gino Dartnall - 24 years old. Gino started tattooing his own face at 18 to cover up facial work someone else had previously had done 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.

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.

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.
