Tattoo of the Week: Ballers get tatted, too!



We always appreciate when guys submit their tattoo images for a feature of the week...for some reason we get an overwhelming amount of responses from women (not that we mind). This week's feature is Dev Devious, a 30-year-old self proclaimed "baller" from Jacksonville, Florida.

Tattoo of the Week: Death Be Upon Us



Besides the really amazing calf tattoos representing the ladder of death, this week we are featuring 22-year-old St. Mary from Dallas, TX. St. Mary, who also goes by Sick Boy, is a painter, guitarist, and does non-profit work at a non-profit orphanage. She also has an ink of the word "dead" on her hand that she has practically scrapped off of her skin (read on for more on this procedure). Thanks for your story, Sick Boy, we love the ink.

When natural hair tells a different story

Natural hair is often tied to Africanness, and rightfully so. Just like our brown skin, we can trace our kinks, coils and curls to the motherland. But what if your hair tells a different story? I’m a black girl with freckles. They appeared on my face when I was six or seven and continued to multiply over the years. I remember once when a white friend of my mom came to visit. I put my skinny spotted wrist up to hers and said, “Look, we both have… Continue

Tattoo of the week: Spread love the Rainbow Way



We love the fact that this week's tattoo of the week feature is keen on the rainbow, how we love colors over here, if you couldn't tell by the site. This week our feature is Ms. 21-year-old, Isake Smith, a Brooklyn native who is currently studying abroad in Granada. She has four tattoos with plans to get more after her experience studying over seas. Our fav is her quote in cursive that says, "No expectations, no regrets," with a nautical star and… Continue
