1. Do your research when choosing a tattoo and an artist.

  • Don’t rush yourself when choosing an idea. You’re going to have to live with it forever.
  • Most artists have a speciality, think about this when choosing one. If you want a photorealistic tattoo don’t choose an artist who specializes in American Traditional, for example.
  • Don’t ask to have your neck/face/hands tattooed if it’s your first tattoo, you will most likely be denied.
  • Look into the cost of the tattoo before walking into the shop, don’t sacrifice the tattoo you want to get a good deal. Save up to get the right ink.
  • Be prepared to be placed on a large wait list for the more popular artists.

2. Prepare properly on the day you get your tattoo.

  • Eat a full meal beforehand.
  • Many artists recommend drinking orange juice prior to getting inked.
  • Don’t drink alcohol beforehand.
  • Getting tattooed is a pretty intimate experience, don’t forget to shower.

3. Bring a good reference photo.

  • Bring in a high res photo if possible; at the very least a picture that is big and not blurry.

4. Don’t bring your entourage to the shop with you.

  • It’s fine to bring a friend to hold your hand, any more than one is rude and obnoxious.
  • Children are not permitted in most tattoo shops, leave them at home.

5. Trust your artist. 

  • The artist knows what they are doing, there is no need to be a “backseat driver.”

6. Check out the stencil design, body placement, and spelling before the tattoo begins.

  • If you see something, say something. You aren’t going to hurt anyone’s feelings if you tell them that something is spelled incorrectly.

7. Be prepared to go through some pain, tattoos hurt.

  • Don’t be afraid to tell your artist that you need to take a break if the pain is too much. Nobody wants a passed out client.
  • Ribs, feet, hands, head, and the spine all really hurt.

8. Stay still!

  • We know that it might be difficult to do so, but make every effort to remain as calm and still as possible while getting tattooed. If you are jittery the artist won’t be able to create straight lines.

9. Tip your artist.

  • Most artists don’t own their shops and have to pay a percentage of the tattoo price to the shop.
  • Tipping anywhere between 10-20% should be fine.
  • If you really love the work don’t be afraid of tipping extra.

10. Take care of your tattoo once you leave the shop.

  • Tattoo aftercare is a crucial step in assuring you have a good tattoo.
  • Tattoos will scab and they should heal in 2-3 weeks.
  • Avoid sun and going in bodies of water for the first 2 weeks.
  • Keep the tattoo moist and clean as it heals.
  • Once it’s healed don’t forget to use SPF 50 sunscreen when going outside, you don’t want your tattoo to fade.

people with borderline personality disorder are cool + good + deserving of love pass it on

This post is not a good one. EVERYONE IS GOOD AND COOL AND DESERVING OF LOVE. Let’s stop alienating people by categorizing them, ok? That’s what makes them feel unworthy… It’s the categorization omg

people with borderline personality disorder are specifically told that they are inherently evil, abusive, and undeserving of love. even our own ‘resources’ on bpd tell us that we’re the problem. 

can you let this one affirmative post by without tacking on your ‘don’t you mean everyone???’ bullshit? because only when everyone is told what people with bpd are told will your comment even be slightly relative. until then you just look like an out of place jackass who can’t go two seconds without mentioning themselves

Me: “Hey, do you want some resources on how to deal with being in a relationship with me?”

Girlfriend: “Sure!”

Girlfriend: “…The first sentence of this says that borderline people aren’t capable of real love.”

Me: “Yeah, I’ve made the educated and helpful decision to internalize that forever so I can sabotage all my relationships even more than my disorder already does.”

Can I just say that Mars’ top is actually amazing.

I was really poorly yesterday so I made myself feel better with a screencap redraw. Finished it off this morning as a bit of a warm-up. Not entirely happy with it, but it served a purpose!

Screen cap from the lovely Sailor Moon Screencaps, as always.

"Somewhere out there, there’s this tree with star-shaped fruit. And the fruit represents an unbreakable connection. So as long as you and your friends carry good luck charms shaped like it, nothing can ever drive you apart. You will always find your way back to each other."

CG: HEY ASSHOLE, STOP PLAYING GAMES FOR GIRLS.

ambitiousbiologist:

Karkat wasn’t being sexist here. Alternian “girls” seem to be the more aggressive half of the species (or at least female assigned? were still not sure if they are bi-gendered or if its just a social thing, cause it cannonly doesn’t affect reproduction in any way???) and are shown being socially hostile far more often than “boys”. (I’m just going to go with the way they talk). 

here are some badass motherfuckers for example:

  • aradia

image

who everyone seems to think of as ghost girl or just happy go-lucky is in reality a bamf. she orchestrates the trolls entry into the game and then prototypes herself.

image

gains a new body.

image

beats up the woman responsible for her death.

image

and finds a way to trick and weasel her way into coming alive again.

image

and just watches the world burn.

image

if anyone is gona save your shit its this girl right here.

image

  • nepeta

image

cuet lill’ cat role player right?

image

WRONG. DEAD.WRONG.

image

this chick kills and skins wild fucking animals for FUN. and food. and just keep in mind that these are ALTERNIAN animals. they were basically all fucking wet-your-pants-and-go-crying-home-to-your-lucii scary.

image

she avenges her morial in a bloody furry and even if she died in the attempt she went on to help the alpha kids.

image

she deserves your respect.

image

image

and cuddlefish

image

image

Heck even out of the Beforians (who are supposed to be the more gentle spices) you see the girls being a shit ton more violent.

image

the hand maiden

image

troll-satan’s girlfriend

image

this rad chick

image

this fabulous goddess

image

this conniving terror who may or may no end the world
