Beverly Hills Tattoo

Don't confuse "Beverly Hills Tattoo" with "LA Ink." Completely different shows. The latter is a spin-off of "Miami Ink" and is scheduled to preem on TLC on August 7. The former is the creation of Flawless Entertainment Group, according to its trademark filing on May 29, 2007 (S/N 77192594).

If "BH Tattoo" ever hits the small screen, it's going to be difficult to keep track of all of the tat-themed series on the telly. You have "LA Ink" and "Miami Ink" on TLC. "Tattoo Stories" on fuse. And the show that started this niche craze? "Inked" on A&E.

Are you wondering whether tattoos are part of the Web 2.0 phenomena too? If so, you should check out

Why the sudden increase in mainstream media interest about ink? According to a study late last year, about one in four people between the ages of 18-50 are tattoed. Personally, I think the Stones had something to do with it for younger Boomers and older Gen X'ers.
