Tattoo as a symbol of time

I just don’t know any other sign which could characterize our times better than tattoo. It looks like today almost every second one has tattoo on their bodies and I guess another part of mankind is going to get it.

You know, this is some tough stuff. For instance, statistics show that twenty-four percent of Americans between 18 and 50 are tattooed; that’s almost one of four. In 2011 $1.65 billion was spent in the U.S. on tattoos. Below is a link that gives further detail on statistics about tattoos in the U.S.

People adorned themselves with tattoo for a long time now. Thee did it in Bronze Age, in Pazyryk Culture, in ancient Egypt. Archaeologists found that people use tattoo skills in different kind of cultures around the world, whether it’s Japan, China, New Zealand, India or America. A five thousand year old tattooed man, named ‘ötzi the ice man’ was discovered on a mountain between
Austria and Italy in 1991.

Regarding celebrities, we know how they love to make tattoos then demonstrate it on public. I love tattoos too and especially I love when it is a form of personal expression.

Actually tattoo is pretty darn hot in my opinion. Especially when it is visible while you’re walking along the street in bikini and have on your hair bandeau top. However a tattoo is a true poetic creation, and is always more than meets the eye.

A Magritte Museum in Brussels

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium has the world’s largest collection of works by René Magritte. Both from the viewpoint of its continuty – all the artist’s periods are widely represented – and its diversity – paintings, drawings, gouaches, posters, advertising work, letters, photographs, sculptures, films and other documents. This collection has a history.

It is the fruit of astute purchases and generous donations. I am happy here to render homage to those whose contributions have been so essential: Georgette Magritte first of all, next Irène Scutenaire-Hamoir, have made bequests to the Royal Museums of certain masterpieces that give the Magritte Museum its dazzle. Our hope is that all our donors will find, in the pages that follow, testimony of our gratitude. May we particularly acknowledge Mrs Germaine Hergé-Kieckens, the Province of Brabant, as well as Maurice Rapin and Mirabelle Dors.

The Museum had been opened in June, 2009, the Magritte Museum displays works of the surrealist artist for which it is named. Located in the heart of Brussels at the Place Royale, the museum is housed in the neo-classical landmark Altenloh Hotel, superbly restored in 1984 with the generous support of the Franco-Belgian group GDF SUEZ and the Magritte Foundation, and operates as part of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. Instantly popular, the museum welcomed over 500,000 visitors in its first year of operation.

The Magritte Museum is also the primary repository for research on the artist. With the support of INEO media system, the museum has developed an online research center which provides access to archives about the painter\’s life and works, an invaluable resource not only for art scholars, students, and academicians worldwide, but also for anyone interested in learning more about this national treasure of Belgium.
