Tattoo Of The Week: Artist Gliffics

I first learned about Gliffics when I came across his Dexter inspired music video, "Call Me Crazy".

Black Fashion By Javii Gallery: 21 Clothing Items Endorsing Barack Obama

Everything from socks, earrings and underwear does the trick.

I'm being a little presumptuous here, but if you're going shopping today or even this weekend for…
