Re: tattoo limits?

I wouldn't get a tattoo, because I don't like the idea of something permanently etched into my skin. Just not my thing. I do occasionally doodle on my arms and legs. I really like abstract patterns, and I think the "tribal" tattoos look cool. Not for any symbolic meaning; I just like how they look. ...

I do agree that graffitti is art, but the problem is with the protection of private property. Grafitti is often made on sides of buildings, etc, that belong to individuals, who may have intended to leave it as it was. This is what causes the problems. A way that some communities have dealt with the ...

It looks really cool, but I think maybe making the original letter shape just a little bolder might make it stand out more as a letter.

(If you actually take my advice, please please do it on a copy or something, that is just too cool to risk damaging!) :speachless:

A short comic

I drew this comic for my site as a sort of "I'm not dead yet!" note. Drew it with my tablet, which I hadn't used in a while. I'd often envied artists who could make a "sketchy" work look good, since mine always seemed to me to look terrible, whether sketchy or "clean". I like how this came out (exce...

Pens (2 reviews + comparison)

I have AP exams coming up (tomorrow!!! *dies*) and realized about 2 hours ago that I didn't have any ballpoint pens (my handwriting sucks in general, and flowing ink pens splatter and smear when I use them), so I went to get some. Having no idea what kind would work best for me but knowing that I ne...

whoa wait a second--it's not popular because everyone has it. It's very common for people in Japan (male, female, young, old) to read manga and not think twice about it. It's just not "revolutionary" or anything. :P

A major reason given is that if the male does NOT clean underneath the foreskin regularly, it is possible for bacteria to grow underneath, causing severe infections (which could cause bigger problems than a slight decrease in sexual pleasure)
