Body Art Hubmob

Body Art is More Than Tattoos

Well, after last week's historic 4 page HubMob, Princessa has led us into a new realm.  This week's HubMob is about body art.  Not just tattoos, either.  Body art can be anything that adorns the body.  That may be piercings, body paint,  body branding or scarification. 

Cultural and religious beliefs can influence the type and use of body art.  There are some that use henna tattoo art and others that believe that a particular method or design is a way to honour tradition or gain protection.

In other words, body art is very personal and subject to many varied perspectives and beliefs.

The hubs below have been written expressly for you by our devoted Hubbers (writers).  They are a source of reading pleasure and of learning.  Please enjoy.  Read all the hubs you want, then we invite you to return to this hub and leave feedback for the hub you've just read.

Thanks for visiting and reading our HubMob.

Tattoos are just one form of body art.  There are tons of different tattoo designs.

Meet the HubMob Team

Each week, your devoted HubMob team seeks ways of making your HubMobbing experience fun and informative.

Ryan Hupfer (Hup) is a bonifide HubPages employee and super Communicator of Awesomeness. Hup is like the president of HubMob land. He gives us direction and keeps the fun and energy alive.

Princessa is the team lead who feeds us the step-by-step instruction and encouragement that we all need to be successful HubMobsters. You can see what I mean by visiting this week's forum thread.

Shirley Anderson (that's me!) moves all the hubs from the weekly forum thread to a central hub for ease in finding and reading all of the work produced for that particular HubMob. I guess you can say that I write the hub hub.

Shirley thanks for your commitment to HubMob. You must still be cross-eyed from last week. We really gotta look into a better bonus program!

Thanks, Nancy's Niche. Hope you enjoy all of the hubs.

Rose Mary, I'm all for that new bonus program! ;) Yes, last week was a dilly, took me forever but I feel quite honoured to have been involved in such a historic event. Maybe it's just my perception but I think that hubbers are becoming very committed to the HubMob, too. It's a wonderful thing. :)

Thanks, Itswritten. I would not get a tattoo, either. It just doesn't look like fun and I'm afraid that I would change my mind a month later. :)

That certainly crossed my mind Shirley, but I didn't know since I am 2 months new. Maybe it passes, but it seems pretty addictive! Even the topics I think I have absolutely no interest in, I usually have at least 1 idea by Wed, and 3 to 4 by Friday. By the time Monday rolls around I have at least 2 to 4 leftover ideas for a rainy day! I felt like I had more visibility and made more friend and fans from HubMob than from HubNuggets.

Rose Mary, you got caught in the spam filter! Sorry, didn't know your comment was sitting here.

At the beginning of this year, the HubMob had repeat hubbers but nothing like it has now! I can recall one that had about 34 hubs, which was outstanding at the time. Now, look what's happening. I'm having trouble keeping up.

By the way, you are an awesome HubMobster! I'm not surprised that you've made new friends and fans.

BPO, you were also caught in the spam filter, sorry.

I love your attitude about appreciating art on our bodies. I don't have any and probably never will but the way that you said that makes it sound like something of beauty. Thank-you.
