vespertine-doe asked: Hey. I hope you don't mind answering this privately, but I was wondering if it would be inappropriate to get a tattoo of Medusa. I've only just recently learned about cultural appropriation, but even though I'm black and I've always really enjoyed Greek mythology, I don't want to do something shitty just for the sake of a tattoo. Thanks in advance and keep up the good, hilarious work.

fnotattoos:

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with getting a tattoo of Medusa; she’s a badass, and plenty of people have a genuine interest in Greek Mythology!  There’s a big difference between really loving something and getting a tattoo because you’re a millionth Cherokee and your name totally means wolf brains in Native American. Plus, I’ve seen some pretty stellar Medusa tattoos, and one more certainly wouldn’t hurt.

EDIT: Didn’t look closely enough; saw the blank Tumblr picture and totally thought the user was anon. Sorry!

reblogging this cause fnotattoos explained my views on the whole ‘cultural appropriation in tattoos’ debate better than I could.

So at first look this is fine right?
Well it’s not. It’s supposed to be this cover of a Blink 182 album called ‘Take Off Your Pants and Jacket’, which was very cleverly illustrated.

This tattoo reads ‘Jacket Pants Takeoff’, which makes zero sense. Major fail.

Sometimes I feel like my fellow Fall Out Boy fans should know better but then I go to shows and realize I’m giving a lot of them too much credit.

EDIT: I don’t mean this in a ‘I’m a better fan than you’ way, more in a ‘there are so many young hipsters here why do I feel so old’ way.

Just found this in one of the artists portfolios of a shop I’m looking at, and even though the rest of his stuff and the other artists there are legit I don’t think I can bring myself to support a place that shit this monstrosity out.

Anonymous asked: So I would love to get a yawning fox on the inside of my forearm and am somewhat confused as to the orientation. Should the face be towards my wrist and tail towards my elbow, or the other way around?

When you hold your arms straight out in front of you, the image should be upside down to you.

annedub asked: At first I thought that the flag was backwards too, but I have been notified that if the flag is on your person, the field of stars is to be closest to your heart, so it's technically correct!

Ugh I dunno it’s military (I assume) rules vs tattoo rules. I guess either way is technically ok, but it still just looks wrong to me.
