I’m sending this 110 heat index some baby donkey side eye realness. I’m missing my hoodie weather hard rn, y’all.

I personally think that cute animals are even cuter when you give them clothes and a hobby. So, what would your ultimate anthropomorphic combo be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This caffeinated mama squirrel has been one of my favorites to tattoo. But my super favorite parts are the little heart shaped acorn details at the bottom 🌸🌰🌸 .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cutetattoo  #tattooartistmagazine  #ladytattooer  #supercutetattoos  #popcultureart  #tattooartmagazine  #atxtattooartist  #austintattooartist  #austinartist  #atxartist  #texastattooer  #staceymartintattoos  #inkedmagazine  #freshlyinkedmag  #tattoolifemagazine  #tattooenergy  #thingsandink  #cuteanimaltattoo  #anthropomorphic  #squirreltattoo  #coffeetattoo

When there are so many things out of our control, tattoos are a way to own our bodies. Choosing to get tattooed is empowering. Hells yeah. . . Portrait of our editor @alicecsnape  by the awesome @hazel.mead  . . . #thingsandink  #bodypositive  #womenwithtattoos  #love  #illustration  #feminist  #feministtattoos 

I felt so honoured when @hazel.mead  asked if she could draw me. Hazel and I met for the first time a couple of months ago, and you know when you just click with someone? We could have talked for hours and I just got great vibes from her. . . We had a chat about tattoos and I told her that they made me feel better about my body. Instead of so-called flaws I now see beautiful designs and that makes me feel empowered. I love that tattoos are something that I choose - when there are so many other things out of our control. . . To create this portrait, Hazel asked if she could take some photos of me to work from. And she made me feel so comfortable and so great about myself. Thanks so much @hazel.mead  you have made me feel so special. ❤️ The little drawings round the edge are all based on my tattoos. . . . #portrait  #love  #feminist  #illustration  #feministillustration  #art  #feministart  #thingsandink  #womenwithtattoos  #bodypositive  #effyourbeautystandards  #hazelmead

Reposting from our editor @alicecsnape : "So yesterday, some guy just came up behind me and stood way closer than necessary. He bellowed to someone who was probably his teenage son.

"I live in a small mining village, Maltby in Rotherham, and seem to attract a lot of attention – some nice comments, but mainly stares from people who don’t know me. People I grew up with accept me as I am, I have never really been one to conform to other people's idea of “normal.” My husband says I’m a prototype not a stereotype." . . We first met Mo Deeley, the self-proclaimed tattooed glam-ma back in 2011 at the London Tattoo Convention. The following year, we spent a day in her life up in Yorkshire. We told her story in our second print issue. Meet her on the blog, link in bio. . .

Wahoo. Who loves carbs? We think this is how our Thursday will be fuelled. . . This naked carbs club babe has also got us thinking. We would love a tattoo dedicated to our love of carbs - crisps, chips, pasta, bread... Ohhh but which would we pick? . . Do you have a carbs dedication inked on your body? If so please share it with us? Tag us in a photo or email hello@thingsandink.com.  We will be doing a round-up of our fave over on the blog. . .

Isn't this so beautiful? I absolutely adore paintings that have tattoos in them. Art in art. It was painted by @cassandra_frances  especially for @thingsandink.  It celebrated our first ever print issue back in 2012. . . That period of time is full of so many wonderful memories. It felt like we were creating something truly magical. A tattoo magazine for women. One that didn't objectify women on its cover. It felt quite radical back then. Our aim, to portray tattoos as an art form, to explore their history, to give realistic inspiration. . . I was also a bit disallusioned with women's mags at the time: airbrushed covers and cellulite-busting. I wanted #thingsandink  to be different, to be a safe and inclusive space for women to be whoever they wanted. . . I think we made a mark over the 12 issues we were in print. And I have been posting some memories over @thingsandink  (alongside new blog content). . . Huge shout out to the passionate people who worked with me on those print issues. I love what we created so much. Shall we do a print revival? I think about it a lot. What would you want to see from it if we did? . . . #thingsandink  #indiepublishing  #editorlife  #love  #womenwithtattoos  #tattoohistory  #tattoomagazine  #tattoos  #independentmagazine  #bedroomproject  #inkedgirls  #tattoostreetstyle  #ink  #discover
