I for one think the world is ready for a black, queer, size 10 Wonder Woman. :) Took a few shots in my Wonder Woman costume which I love! Definitely plan on upgrading my armor but I’m still unbelievably happy with this! Not sure what it is about this costume but it definitely makes you want to stand a little taller and go off to be a badass.

I have more pictures in my costume at my facebook page!

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 who say bi erasure doesn’t happen need to realize Freddie Mercury is known as the most famous homosexual man when he identified himself as bisexual. If that’s not bi erasure I don’t even know.

Also PoC erasure, most people don’t know he was 100% Indian

Specifically he was Parsi.
Also raised Zeroastrian.

The Best Thing That EVER happened at my job

  • Me:

    Did you find everything ok today Sir?

  • Male Customer:

    Yeah everything was fine, but prices on the cat food just keep going up! I remember when it was only .30 a can! But I bet you don't, you're like what...20?

  • Me:

    21, but yes.

  • Male Customer:

    God you're young, I bet you'd never go out with someone my age, unless you have some Daddy issues

  • Me:

    ...........

  • Male Customer:

    so do you like working here? Are you in school?

  • Me:

    Your total today is 21.38 Sir.

  • Male Customer:

    Are you seeing anyone?

  • Me:

    ......Cash or Credit Sir?

  • Male Customer:

    When do you get off work?

  • Male co-worker comes up next to me:

    Everything ok?

  • Male Customer:

    Yeah we're fine

  • Male Co-worker:

    Actually I think you're being really rude

  • Male Customer:

    What are you her boyfriend?

  • Male co-worker:

    No I'm not. And even if I was, why would it matter? Her job is to ring up your items, make sure your shopping experience was pleasant and give you change. You're making really creepy comments to a young woman you don't even know at a cash register, it's not ok.

  • Male Customer:

    You can't talk to me that way! I want to speak to your manager.

  • Me:

    It's really ok, everything is Ok

  • Male Co-worker:

    No no, I'll go ahead and call our FEMALE boss up here to address any grievances you might have *Sir*

  • Male Customer:

    slams down 25 dollars grabs his bags and leave*

  • Male Co-worker:

    You don't even have to take anyone's shit here. If anyone even looks at you funny, pick up that phone, call a manager, call me, call another co-worker and it will be handled. You are a valued employee and you deserve to feel safe and respected at work by *everyone*
