Dear followers: I am doing a field school with primates in Rwanda and won’t be on tumblr during the month of July. I’ll be back August 2, so bear with me!
Today, June 28th, we celebrate the birthday of Gauntlet founder Jim Ward as International Piercing Day! Many piercing studios are offering interesting special discounts today so take a minute to check out your local studio and see if they’re participating.
Happy Birthday Jim!
It was not long before I realized that the problems facing the chimpanzees are closely connected with problems facing Africa. And i soon came to understand that, in many cases, these problems could be laid directly at the door of the unsustainable lifestyle of the elite societies around the world. A lifestyle hatched in the Western world and exported, along with its values (or lack of them) and its technology, to the developing world. To help my chimpanzees, therefore, I have to start thinking about ways of opening the eyes of those who were, unknowingly, robbing the natural world of more and more of her nonrenewable natural resources.
I love Batman and I love watercolor tattoos so I figured why not combine those two? Initially, I got the idea when I saw some amazing watercolor superhero art by Blule and presented her Batman watercolor art to the tattoo artist, who worked his magic from there on. I absolutely love this piece, it was amazing to get the chance to have the tattoo done by Emrah.
