My sidekick from love made me do it x was all bad ass last week and decided to spontaneously get another tattoo.The choice of image was a beautiful protea ilustration found on a saucer which was one of the bargains she claimed at the thrift shop.A friend pointed out that this would make a nice tattoo,and indeed so it does!

When going out to buy groceries (please note,she still had the protective sticker on her tattoo),a little girl asked her (in Afrikaans) "Tannie,is dit 'n aanplak tattoo?",meaning is that an adhesive tattoo.This made me laugh.Just a fun story to share while we are on the subject of tattoos ...

Now,to get to the core of this post...I've been wanting "one of those clouds you draw" as my friend Angelica describe it on the inside of my arm.The only thing that's stopping me is that everytime I have the cash there are tons of other things that need to be paid for,-we all know the drill.So,I figured that until I finally get my own,I will share some images of cool tattoos I've come accross ...enjoi!

PS-I will post an image of my mate's protea once she's figured out how to photograph it:P

but for now-

this last one looks like a drawing,but whatever -would make a sweet chop:P

//NEW INNOVATIONS/ second-hand

Derick Melander's work is definitely a true productof innovation!The artist makes sculptures out of old clothes, or rather as he states creates " large geometric configurations from carefully folded and stacked second-hand clothing" !

Yes,his installations are where all old mens sweat pants and all joggers oversized shirts end up.As Melander explains ,clothing is his choice of medium as it wears, fades, stains and stretches it becomes an intimate record of our physical presence .Yet,they are transformed into something beautiful and vibrant(
source).His sculptures don't only consist of old clothes but the artist also makes use of old shoes.

These sculptures arent just made out of basic layers of these "left overs",but rather consist of these 2nd hand garments being neatly folded to exact dimension and placed on top of each other in a specific manner.

Most people will know her from her solo project Fever Ray or from her sibling collaboration,the Knife.Yet,as Fever Ray her appearance takes a truly interesting form.Her music translates as an all around project in which even her appearance takes a suitable shape.I came accross a few images of Karin and her many costumes....
