    ... and the best ones will eventually be tattoed also on some of the most whimsical sport champions bodies, provided You may still spot the few ones who have at least some parts tatto-free. They like very much exhibiting childish/ youngsters drawings to feel like fake tribal warriors or weird world maps (doubtfully as living bodyart masterpieces I hope). LOL I remember that in the old times only sailors and convicts were tattoed, in our western world at least .....

    Went to the Art Gallery lately and in the bookshop there were lovely colouring-in books. One was Mindfulness plus a whole bunch of others, seems to be the rage:

    My sister used to colour adult colouring-in books - landscapes, cities, etc., when I was a kid. Special memories, she did beautiful work.

    Oooooh, serious fun here.

    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/

    Oh, that is a nice image! But good to know, that this is trendy, as my cousin is working on a website with such coloring submittals herself atm.
    If someone is interested, I will post the link when she is ready and the site is online.

    I myself was evil and took some images from the Simon's Cat books for coloring

    They have a lot of very detailed nice sketches:

    We are lucky here in Germany as there is a publisher who provides a lot of very cheap but high quality coloring books for kids.
    I alway buy them for my little nephew and niece. The outlines have many details.


    They have stuff of adults too: http://paletti-design.de/Kindermalbu...eite-1515.html
