Yo guys, I'm the alienist here! Actually, my name's Amanda who lives in the middle of nowhere. Seriously, my town didn't make some GPS's. It's sad really.

Well, what you see is what you get. If you have any question, or really just need someone to talk to, I'm on here most of the time, so feel free to message me.

    This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

    Preach!

    WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!

    SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.

    THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.

    1. Do your research when choosing a tattoo and an artist.

    • Don’t rush yourself when choosing an idea. You’re going to have to live with it forever.
    • Most artists have a speciality, think about this when choosing one. If you want a photorealistic tattoo don’t choose an artist who specializes in American Traditional, for example.
    • Don’t ask to have your neck/face/hands tattooed if it’s your first tattoo, you will most likely be denied.
    • Look into the cost of the tattoo before walking into the shop, don’t sacrifice the tattoo you want to get a good deal. Save up to get the right ink.
    • Be prepared to be placed on a large wait list for the more popular artists.

    2. Prepare properly on the day you get your tattoo.

    • Eat a full meal beforehand.
    • Many artists recommend drinking orange juice prior to getting inked.
    • Don’t drink alcohol beforehand.
    • Getting tattooed is a pretty intimate experience, don’t forget to shower.

    3. Bring a good reference photo.

    • Bring in a high res photo if possible; at the very least a picture that is big and not blurry.

    4. Don’t bring your entourage to the shop with you.

    • It’s fine to bring a friend to hold your hand, any more than one is rude and obnoxious.
    • Children are not permitted in most tattoo shops, leave them at home.

    5. Trust your artist. 

    • The artist knows what they are doing, there is no need to be a “backseat driver.”

    6. Check out the stencil design, body placement, and spelling before the tattoo begins.

    • If you see something, say something. You aren’t going to hurt anyone’s feelings if you tell them that something is spelled incorrectly.

    7. Be prepared to go through some pain, tattoos hurt.

    • Don’t be afraid to tell your artist that you need to take a break if the pain is too much. Nobody wants a passed out client.
    • Ribs, feet, hands, head, and the spine all really hurt.

    8. Stay still!

    • We know that it might be difficult to do so, but make every effort to remain as calm and still as possible while getting tattooed. If you are jittery the artist won’t be able to create straight lines.

    9. Tip your artist.

    • Most artists don’t own their shops and have to pay a percentage of the tattoo price to the shop.
    • Tipping anywhere between 10-20% should be fine.
    • If you really love the work don’t be afraid of tipping extra.

    10. Take care of your tattoo once you leave the shop.

    • Tattoo aftercare is a crucial step in assuring you have a good tattoo.
    • Tattoos will scab and they should heal in 2-3 weeks.
    • Avoid sun and going in bodies of water for the first 2 weeks.
    • Keep the tattoo moist and clean as it heals.
    • Once it’s healed don’t forget to use SPF 50 sunscreen when going outside, you don’t want your tattoo to fade.

    For future reference!

    GUYS PICHI (my family’s prefered tattoo artist) ALSO WISHES TO REMIND YOU THAT YOU SHOULD ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT THE CERTIFICATE THAT AUTORIZES THE TATTOOER TO RUN THE SHOP IS IN A VISIBLE PLACE AND ALWAYS BE PRESENT WHEN HE PREPARE THE INSTRUMENTS (MAKE SURE THE INK IS COVERED AND CLEAN, THAT HE USES A NEW NEEDLE EVERYTIME) 

    BE NICE TO YOUR TATTOO ARTIST BUT ALSO MAKE SURE YOU ARE SAFE IT IS YOUR BODY AND YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE A HEALTHY ONE AS WELL AS A REALLY COOL INKED ONE

    so here’s a fun story about this movie. guess who loves this movie? me! i do! i love this movie. i love this movie so much that when i was in the 7th grade and i saw “first wives club 2” on pay per view i was like: HELL YEAH!! FIRST WIVES CLUB TWO!! NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WAS A SEQUEL!!!

    here’s the synopsis for first wives club 2:

    disgruntled first wives take their ex-husbands’ new lovers under their wing.

    sounds great, right? awesome viewing material for a precocious 11-year-old.

    so i buy this movie, and like, three minutes into it i’m starting to feel suspicious?? like it’s really low quality and my girls are nowhere in sight?? how come none of the first wives are the same?? how come they’re alone in a bedroom with mood lighting?? why is she taking off her shirt?? why are they both taking off their shirts?? WHY ARE THEY—

    here’s what i did not know about first wives club 2:

    • it is a lesbian porno of no relation to the beloved 1996 classic.

    so of course i, horrified that i’ve accidentally bought porn on my family’s account (and in that state of panic that kids work themselves into whenever anything regarding sex is mentioned), quickly shut off the TV and go upstairs and watch an episode of veggie tales to like, cleanse my soul and apologize to jesus, and that’s that.

    EXCEPT, OF COURSE:

    • you have to pay for pay per view.

    so the end of the month comes and i have completely put this incident out of my mind, haha, i accidentally bought porn, how funny, TELL NO ONE. right? and i’m sitting at a nice dinner with my mother, my stepfather, and my very religious aunt deb, and we’re just talking about farm things, whatever, when suddenly my mother puts her fork down and says, “okay, there’s something we need to discuss. as a family.”

    • AS A FAMILY.

    and i’m like, running through a list of people i know who could conceivably be dead, and fantasizing about my mother announcing that she’s going to buy me My Own Computer Just Because U Earned It Kiddo, and she pulls out a piece of paper that says DIRECTV across the top. and i’m like: OH NO.

    "i received the tv bill today," my mother said, and i was like, shoveling potatoes into my mouth as fast as i could because i knew that when i went to PORN PRISON they weren’t going to feed me this kind of quality starch. "does anybody want to tell me who purchased the pornography?"

    as a reminder, a quick table survey:

    • my mother, surprised and disappointed by the porn bill (innocent)
    • my stepfather, a grumbly old cowboy who just wants to sing along to kenny chesney and watch the hunt for red october (innocent)
    • my aunt deb, a super religious catholic whose best friend is a nun named Sister Placid (innocent)
    • me, the 11-year-old with a mouthful of potatoes who definitely purchased the lesbian pornography

    silence.

    my mother said, “i’m not going to ask again.”

    silence.

    my aunt looked at my stepdad. my stepdad looked at my aunt. NOBODY LOOKED AT ME, THE 11-YEAR-OLD WITH A MOUTHFUL OF POTATOES WHO DEFINITELY PURCHASED THE LESBIAN PORNOGRAPHY.

    my mother shook her head and put the bill down. “this was incredibly inappropriate,” she said. “skip, deb, whoever. buy that shit on your own time. i’m not paying for it. what if molly had seen it?”

    • WHAT IF MOLLY HAD SEEN IT?

    "don’t expose my kid to that crap."

    • DON’T
    • EXPOSE
    • MY KID
    • TO THAT CRAP

    "if you want to watch porn, fine, but do it in private and don’t expect me to pay for it. i can’t believe one of you did that in the living room."

    • I CAN’T BELIEVE ONE OF YOU DID THAT
    • IN THE LIVING ROOM

    but molly, why didn’t you own up to it and explain that it was an accident?

    • are you fucking kidding
    • i did not want to go to porn prison

    the fun conclusion to this story is that i never owned up to it, which means that there are 3 people in the world who have not solved the mystery of the lesbian porn. a quick survey:

    • my mother, who lives every day wondering whose porn she paid for
    • my stepfather, who probably wishes he knew less about his wife’s sister’s porn preferences
    • my aunt, who probably wishes she knew less about her sister’s husband’s porn preferences

    but molly, why don’t you own up to it now, with the safety of time and distance and the knowledge that porn prison isn’t real?

    • are you fucking kidding
    • this is the best thing i’ve ever done
