Anonymous asked: Cracking up that someone called you out on something the rest of the town thinks.

that’s pretty cool I guess. I’ll remember that when I actually give a shit.

Anonymous asked: Kinda are. Fake smile. Fake friends. Saw you at the show last night with a few of my girlfriends. Saw through all of it. An awful facade. Wish you could find the strength to be happy without all these awful people surrounding u.

you can assume all you want about me, but do not speak ill of my friends. the friends I hold close I would not trade for the world. they are my family.

Anonymous asked: Hi there. I got a decent sized tattoo on my calf 6 days ago and I'm having some thick scabbing in the area. I e-mailed my artist but I'd like to get a few other opinions as well. What's the best way for me to approach the situation? I have been washing with warm water and antibacterial soap once in the morning and once in the evening. I pat dry with a clean paper towel and then apply fragrance free lotion afterwards. Any tips? Thanks!

you’re doing everything that I recommend. scabbing is totally normal for a healing tattoo. just keep it clean, wear non-restrictive clothing in that areas, and don’t mess with it. let it do it’s thing. don’t touch it with dirty hands. don’t go swimming, or submerge it for a minimum of 3-4 weeks.

I’ve noticed in my experience of tattooing, and getting tattooed, that leg tattoos sometimes are a slightly slower healing process as well. my only other tip would be that you could try applying vitamin E oil, instead of the lotion. it helps with skin regeneration, and also helps reduce any scarring. just be sure to apply it after you have washed both the tattoo, and your hands.

In 1925 Coca Cola made a lucky watch fob in the shape of a swastika with the slogan, “Drink Coca Cola In Bottles 5¢.”. 
At that time, the Swastika was still a symbol of ‘Good Luck’ taken from the ‘Whirling Log’ used in the US by Native American Navajo, Papago, Apache, and Hopi tribes. 
(Also the symbol used throughout history by the Celts, Indians and Greeks amongst other nationalities and religions).
The word swastika came from the Sanskrit word svastika, meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote auspiciousness, or any piece of luck or well-being.
It is composed of su- meaning “good, well” and asti “being”. Suasti thus means “well-being.” The suffix -ka either forms a diminutive or intensifies the verbal meaning, and suastika might thus be translated literally as “that which is associated with well-being,”.
