'Miami Ink' Star Not Blinded by Fame
BuddyTV - USA - For many, becoming a celebrity means living a more fast-paced and eventful life, but the same cannot be said for Yojiro “Yoji” Harada, a featured tattoo artist on TLC's Miami Ink.  Being stopped in the streets by fans desperate for an autograph has not made Harada more desirous of fame.  In fact, he often shies away from the attention.

“Before he met me, he partied every night,” Bridget, Harada's wife, told AAJA Voices.  “Now, he would prefer to stay home.  A typical family night is going to get sushi, renting a Blockbuster movie, or going to the beach with [our daughter]

Associated Content - Denver, CO, USA - According to a July 31 press release, TV shows and a number of online "how to tattoo" instructional and informational sites have prompted what some say is a growing trend in not just bearing a tattoo, but learning the actual art of creating and applying tattoos.

In times past, when people heard of someone sporting a tattoo, the very word conjured up thoughts of bikers, ex-cons or tough guys. Now, according to the press release, tattoos are everywhere. In fact, it's estimated that 1 out of 8 Americans have at least one tattoo, and more are getting tattoos each year. And
