Beautiful, Complex, and God: sartorialadventure: cestriankiwi: josef-tribbiani: bigwordsandsharpedges: The native Maori people of New Zealand have tattooed their faces for centuries. They had a complex warrior culture before the arrival of Europeans, and suffered under early colonialism, but have experienced a cultural revival since the 60′s.  The marks are called moko, and are etched with chisels instead of needles to leave grooves along with the ink. The true form is sacred, unique to each person, and distinct from European tattoos that mimic that traditional style. There arent many pictures non combat related that look this badass Actually most Tā moko are done with modern tattoo equipment these days, but some people get them done the traditional way. And, as others have said, they’re not for Non- Māori, as they have specific meanings and significance. If you want a tattoo with Māori style, you can get a kirituhi. These avoid any designs associated with particular tribes or famous people you’re not related to. Kirituhi is a Māori style tattoo either made by a non-Māori tattooer, or made for a non-Māori wearer. Kirituhi has mana of it’s own and is a design telling the unique story of the wearer in the visual language of Māori art and design. Kiri means ‘skin’, and tuhi means ‘to write, draw, record, adorn or decorate with painting’.Kirituhi is not restricted to only Māori people, and it is a way for Māori to share our cultural arts with people from around the world in a respectful manner, and for non-Māori artists to enjoy our beautiful art form as well. I happily do kirituhi for my clients around the world and it is a privilege to do such work for them.Kirituhi is no lesser an artform than moko, however it is different and I believe these differences must be acknowledged and respected, so that the integrity of our taonga Māori – moko, is maintained around the world. Moko is uniquely Māori and it is strictly reserved to be done by Māori, for Māori.If either the recipient or tattooer do not have Māori whakapapa, then the resulting design is a Māori Style tattoo or kirituhi, NOT moko. The word moko originated from the Māori atua (god) of volcanic activity and earthquakes, Rūaumoko – therefore the origin of tā moko is divine and sacred – to me this is no small thing, nor should it be dismissed. As my mentor once told me, ‘moko is about 99% culture, and 1% tattoo’. (source)

I need to get into the film industry Need is a strong wordWhat do you want to do in the industry? Actress What's your experience? Do you have a demo reel? I'm good That's going to be useful for you if you get some auditions. Usually you'll need to put yourself on video to get in front of casting agents. It also helps to have a manager. Have you looked for one? 6/19/2018 7:02 AM No Do you know any good ones? 6/19/2018 7:39 AM Yeah, I know quite a few. Used to work with managers every day. Do you have a resume? No but are u good at writing them? Of course I am, I have an incredible job I just want to make sure I'm clear... you want to be an actress, you are good. You have no reel, no resume, no manager. Do you have headshots? Not really but u can help me I've known a lot of Hollywood actors, and I can tell you that they all work extremely hard.

Success is something you make for yourself, not something you ask a stranger for on Tinder. Good luck to you Sent This lazy piece of trash. Hot photos, no bio. Welcome to LA.

Advice, Anaconda, and Bad: somuchforthetolerantleft: straightwhiteboyproblems: one of the reasons why I did straight white boy problems was because I wanted to grow as a person. This blog was my medium and I pushed myself to create, and to create, I had to expand my perspectives.  In some ways, the straight white boy character that you became acquainted with was an exaggerated version of myself. Many of the problems were real life occurrences/observations/events that I drew from personal experience, but some problems also came from friends or were satirized to the point where the anecdote was unrealistic. Straight White Boy Problem #965 is honestly one of my personal favorites because this “problem” was actually a real situation in my life, and this situation could apply for several dudes that are questioning the meaning of masculinity. The person that started at problem #1 is not the same person that finished with problem #1000. I was very much a self-entitled brat when I started this blog, but i have grown since then. I will be graduating college in december with a dual degree, leadership positions in student organizations, and the confidence that I can go out and do anything I set my mind to. having a level of internet popularity (this blog finished with just over 164k followers) on a medium such as tumblr is very scary. one bad move, and you lose your rep - we have seen that with zubat, pizza, and most recently, sixpenceee. my advice to yall is to keep holding people in these positions accountable, but NEVER elevate internet famous people above other people. not everything i said over 3 years was 100% politically correct, but when i was in the wrong, i had fair and jovial conversations with people to figure out why i was in the wrong. no matter where you go in life, try to treat everybody fairly and equally - hopefully they will do the same to you.  as for my name, you can call me alec. i did promise i’d tell you guys who i was after everything was said and done so there ya go. thank you for following this blog and thank you for being a part of this experience. this blog was a giant, beautiful mistake that just kinda happened and im happy that yall enjoyed it as much as i did. i may do something in the future, i may not, but i leave this blog a changed and better person. sincerely, swbp swbp actually being a straight white boy is imo the biggest plot twist of the year Anyways who like dick?
