Yeah, I am really happy with how this one turned out. I’ve always liked doing font stick n poke and I think this one is my best yet.
The kick off show is happening on my birthday! In my heart-home!
Why is my birthday party happening on the other side of the planet to me? That’s a bit rude.
You only care what punk girls look like and not about their views? What the fuck is this tumblr? Maybe you should change it to fuckyeahshallowvapidfashion. Fuck you and your silencing of women’s voices. People are more than just pretty pictures.
“It is unfair to ask a woman to leave aside her personal experience and discuss feminist issues in the abstract. You are discussing the stuff of her life. Asking her to “not make it personal” is to ask her to wrench her womanhood from her personhood. Don’t play Devil’s advocate. Seriously. Just don’t.”
Fuck the ‘devils advocate’ who somehow manages to find me at every party I go too. So sick of that guy.
“The problem is that you don’t just choose recovery. You have to keep choosing recovery, over and over and over again. You have to make that choice 5-6 times each day. You have to make that choice even when you really don’t want to. It’s not a single choice, and it’s not easy.”

how do you get such clean lines on your stick and poke tattoos? i've done one and i want to do another, but i don't want it to look as messy as the first.
What sort of needle and ink are you using? It’s hard to know what advice to give you without knowing what you’re planning to do, but maybe you could show me the first one so I can see what you mean by ‘messy’?
Probably the most important advice is to have a design you’re really happy with drawn on your skin, do it sober or as close to that as you can manage, and take your time.
There is so much to break down in this world other than each other.
These are some things I like to do, think about, talk about and will probably blog about:
- breaking everything down (other than each other)
- cultivating compassion
- practicing being vulnerable
- working on wanting to be alive
- mental health
- active consent
- rejecting the gender binary
- cooking and eating food
- dumpster diving
- stick n poke
- being queerpunk as fuck
- Doing It Yourself
- the ocean
- spoken word poetry
- trying my best
- this little blue ball on which we live
- the solar system, galaxy and universe it is floating in
- conflict resolution
- direct action
- flexing my brain muscle
- being generally amazed
Some people who are incredibly important to me died recently, so this blog is likely to contain lots of stuff about death and grief and suicide. If this is triggering for you or you don't wish to see it for any reason, let me know and I will do what I can to help.
I also probably will post a bunch of punk music because that's pretty important right now.
