Sugar & Spikes Tattoo Feature: Badass Singer Honey Larochelle

Honey Larochelle creates the kind of music where the funk drives into your soul and before you know it, you are rocking your whole body with your stank face on! Honey has been performing ever since she was 5 years old and was practically raised in soul and rock music with her mother who has sung with Marvin Gaye, Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi. It's easy to see that Honey's "Stankface Music" is a genre that was long in the making. After years of singing lead for The Brand New…

Black Fashion By Javii: 12 Best Solange Knowles outfits of 2012

Merry Christmas all. As a Christmas treat I thought I'd bring you the 12 Best Solange Knowles outfits of 2012. I think everyone would agree that besides one or two outfits, Solange Knowles was one of, if not the Best dressed woman of 2012. Not only did she stay on trend, but she stuck to her master skills of pattern mixing, showed some leg and wore her natural hair (and some protective styles) out loud and proud.

I bring you The 12 Best Solange Knowles outfits of…

Tattoo Of The Week: All the way from down under, Australian beauty Amber Morgan

All the way from down under, this Australian beauty is an aspiring model who doesn't shy away from her ink. Anyone who ever thinks tattoos make you look less feminine, has never met Amber Morgan. Her favorite tattoo is of her rose because of the detail the artist added to it. I love the tattoo on her foot because it's a naughty animated female character and I think it shows off her cheeky side. While her owl tattoo on her arm shows us that she definitely is a thinker who takes…

Sugar & Spikes Tattoo Feature: Cover It Up!

The day may come when that one tattoo went from the best idea ever to your worst nightmare. Maybe you thought you'd be into tribal styles forever or that Daffy Duck would eternally be funny to you? No one likes to admit they made a mistake but let's face happens. Obviously, if you woke up after a night of heavy drinking and discovered your buddy's name freshly inked on your body, the chances of it being an unwanted tattoo is pretty high too. Fortunately, cover up…

Tattoo Of The Week: Sasha's Eye & Talisman

While many professional models often shy away from getting inked, Sasha Thompson found herself a loophole. My favorite tattoo is Sasha's inner lip tattoo of an eye, "Mal de Ojo", which was done on the show, Ink Masters. It can't be seen unless she pulls down on her bottom lip to reveal it. In many cultures, it is believed that the way someone looks at you can inflict a curse. The eye tattoo symbolizes the protection against that negative energy, which definitely comes in handy…

Black Fashion By Javii: Tutorial to make your own "What do you want for Christmas?" Zine

"Zine" is an abbreviation of fanzine or magazine. Zines are "most commonly a small circulation self-published work of original and/or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier." Another definition of Zine says that circulation must be 1,000 or less, although in practice the significant majority are produced in editions of less than 100, and profit is not the primary intent of publication.…

Tattoo Of The Week: Sherrell, "The Tatted Lady"

Sherrell Washington Cruz is a mom and wife who isn't afraid to embrace her alter ego, "The Tatted Lady". She wanted her back piece of her alter ego to reflect her love of rock & roll and of course tattoos. She also has a chest piece that represents her love for her family. What I love most about her pieces is that she shows us that a stay at home mom, dedicated to her family can be quite the rockstar! Who says you have to start wearing mom jeans and stop getting ink? If…
