Finding A Tattoo Artist After Trauma

A few months ago, one of my friends posted on Facebook that he was looking for a new tattoo shop that was woman-friendly and queer-friendly after a bad experience with his last artist. I asked him privately who the artist was who he’d had a bad experience with and he gave me the guy’s name and the tattoo shop he worked at. “He’s quiet and nice in person, but when I friended him on Facebook I found out he’s anti-choice, anti-gay, racist, misogynist, and pro-gun. After he defended the Hobby Lobby decision I decided I can’t ignore his politics anymore.”

I told him I could relate: I had gone to one artist who had done fantastic work, but when I friended him on Facebook I found out that he had dressed in redface to be the Blackhawks mascot for Halloween and was just throwing out people’s criticisms wholesale and telling them to unfriend him instead. More recently, I’d gotten beautiful work done at a different shop that had done similarly great work for my friends, but when I went back to look into getting knuckle tattoos, the artist had thrown out my few guidelines — I didn’t want the tattoo to be black, and I wanted it to be pretty without being too feminine. He insisted that it had to be black and block lettering or it’d take away from the “impact” of the tattoos. I had asked for what I’d asked for because I already have black block letters on the insides of my fingers and I needed to differentiate, and because these are my hands. I want to love this tattoo for the rest of my life. He clearly didn’t care, so I canceled the appointment. Keep reading »

Drake Got An Emoji Tattoo

So Drake got an emoji tattoo, and just to skip the suspense, I’m gonna tell you that it’s the emoji that’s either praying hands if you like to think that the radials coming off of the hands represent some kind of divine glow, or a high-five if you like to think that the radials are supposed to represent the sound of a high five. Obviously I’m in the latter category. Keep reading »

30 Amazing “Game Of Thrones” Tattoos To Get You Psyched For The Season 4 Finale

Game Of Thrones Tattoo

After last week’s wild episode (no spoilers, no worries!), I can’t stop thinking about the upcoming “Game of Thrones” season four finale. Who’s going to die? Who’s going to bang? Who’s going to have to contend with Arya Stark’s steel blade and equally stone cold one-liners? Will Jon Snow ever really know anything? Anyway, in order to prep, I figured this week’s collection of beautiful tattoos could be entirely about the book and televisions series that have captivated the world, resulting in parties where dozens of people at a time can go from enthralled to totally horrified in about 60 seconds flat.

Angelina Jolie’s New Tattoo Is A Big Mystery

Angelina Jolie’s every move — at least the ones we see — is scrutinized, so it comes as no surprise that already people have noticed that the famous mama/actress/director is sporting new ink! In Australia to begin filming her latest movie and directorial project, Unbroken, Angie’s been spied with her whole brood of six kiddos several times since late last week. But this morning, she was photographed strolling solo by the waterfront in Sydney this morning “quietly debuting” her huge new tattoo, according to Us. Read more at The Stir…
