What does having a tattoo represent exactly? 

I don't have one. Yet. 
However I feel like tattoo's are very misunderstood. 
My mother has some strong opinions about this topic herself and so does my dad. For years have I heard my dad lecture me on how tattoo's are for the brainless who have no talent but have the need to show off. It wasn't till recently did I find the best reaction for his statement. "But what if the tattoo isn't anywhere visible?" BAM. No quick reply from dad there. I totally one handedly flipped his opinion on tattoos. It's true though, right? Steve Jobs could of had a tattoo on his ass and you wouldn't know. Yeah if he told interviewers voluntarily then yes, he wanted to brag. Mum on the other hand likes to ask people with tattoo's this question: "What does your mother think about you having all these tattoos?" A question very crucial to her judgement on tattoos. 

A few weeks back I had the weirdest conversation with someone about tattoos and it infuriated me. Never have I ever been so pissed off at someone's personal opinions. Yes, you are entitled to it but it crossed my line and it gave me that rush of desire and rebellion to get it just to softly imply "this is what I think of your opinion. So there, shut up and live your narrow minded life."
 The emotion within me was so strong that I finally realized the reason why people went out and got a tattoo. It was to prove and proclaim the freedom you had with your own skin, to do whatever the hell you wanted because it was yours and that others had no control over you.

 It was a gesture of free choice. 

I exclaimed my excitement to my partner and she was like
 "Did you not know that in the first place?"

Maybe it wasn't as obvious to someone like me who never really thought of getting a tattoo. I accepted those who had them and I saw no fault in wanting to get meaningful tattoos. Of course, there is a limit but yet again it is your choice. 

Who is to say you are forbidden to do what you want with your body? If you make a mistake, it's nobody's business but yours. 

The only advice I would give to those preparing to get inked, is to think about it, give it a few months or one year and if by then you still want it, by all means get it. 

Happy inking!


The very best of fuzzy


If you do not intend to pay money to go watch this film, 
then please never return to this blog ever again. 


I just watched it today, and boy, i regret nothing. 
No spoilers as I'll just try to describe to you with not much detail on how amazing this film is so you'll go watch it and then you may come back here and prove me right. This film has Yeti's and elves, eggs with legs and baby teeth flying all over the place! Please, everyone, contain your immature excitement.  No, it's okay, I'M JUST KIDDING. PLEASE SHARE MY JOY. 
It has been a very, very long time since I've watched an animated film and have that warm fuzzy feeling inside. The very best of fuzzy. 

The film is basically about the big four, Santa who is now Russian and has a cool nickname 'North', the tooth fairy 'Toothania' who is half human half hummingbird, the easter rabbit 'Bunnymund' that has an Australian accent and an attitude to go with and last but not least the Sandman, 'Sandy' who is mute but compensates this by being so out-of-this-world adorable. Of course, there is Jack Frost the lead and bad guy Pitch Black aka The Boogie Man (who I dislike very much due to my hatred towards the dark) Animated films these days have got to have the cute 'minions' like those in Despicable Me, and trust me ROTG does not disappoint.  

That fuzzy feeling I mentioned is such a rare emotion to have. The Rise Of The Guardians seems to be answering all my childhood questions that Disney had yet to satisfy me over the years. So well done DreamWorks! Santa was cool and fit, not the chubby red cheeked we grew up with. HE HAS SLEEVE TATTOOS ON BOTH ARMS AS HIS NAUGHTY & NICE LIST FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. It's everything but conventional and it blows my mind. 

 (he's so bad ass I think I need to watch it again tomorrow)

These radical changes turned my world upside down, such new perspectives were exactly what I have been looking for in these myths and legends. I truly do not understand those who refuse to watch animated movies and I don't think I ever will. I pity those who can no long enjoy a film because it's animated. What difference does it make? Be a kid again, don't get so caught up with being mature and all grown up. Guurrrll, please. How long has it been since you lit up that tiny remaining spark of your imagination? I think it is absolutely crucial to keep the child inside of you alive. To be honest, I'm not really sure why myself. At least, keep him/her alive so that you can go watch a movie like ROTG and escape reality to fantasy even just for a couple hours. There might be tears, or there might be people in denial from all the cuteness going on and there may possibly... most likely be a lot of bliss. Pure, beautiful bliss. 

If this movie doesn't send you home smiling, I don't know what will. 

on a side note, I just made YouTube partner. HOLLA!
