Stuff & Nonsense

This is my Tumblr version of a junk drawer. I like anime, horror, Homestuck, animals, and all kinds of weird stuff.

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.

These are all so on point!

CONFESSION:  I think romances triggered with male companions in Origins are way better than those in DA2, because in DA:O characters are way more positive despite their difficult pasts and their problems, while in DA2 they’re so broody and sad, even when in love!

I worry about this person and their expectations regarding love. It’s not a magic bandaid that solves all your emotional problems.

Since that isn’t what she said, I’m sure he/she will be just fine (as far as we can guess from a DA confession).  Her statement was that they people in DA:O were more positive than those in DA2, regardless of their dark pasts, while those in DA2 weren’t even happy when they were in love (which should be a positive area in their life).  It was a statement on people, not on some magic bandaid.

Finally got a time to fanart, Oh God, I need to let out some steam.
Careful, Law, the person you cherished the most is about to kick you sideway.
That said, One Piece ch. 761 is totally marvelous! Although I got some bad premonitions with the hints for future arc that Oda threw in this chapter.
