Not sure how far you are from Virginia but the artist I go to loves doing watercolor tattoos and artwork. His name is Brad Bellante and he posts a lot of his stuff on instagram, Bradbellantetattoos.
gosh, his work is beautiful!
i’m afraid I’m on the west coast in portland, OR, so virginia’s a biiiiit far to go for a tattoo. but his instagram was lovely to look at!
What sort of design are you thinking of getting?
I’m pretty open to whatever design can be designed from my current tattoo, since it’s rather blocky and probably hard to work around but in general, in tattoos I am awful fond of birds and trees and sunflowers, paint splatter, space, and geometric designs and any combination of those things
basically i want something happy and beautiful to cover up something that as it is right now makes me quite sad!
hey tumblr people
do any of you know any really talented watercolor artists?
i had consultation about covering up my tattoo and the dude was basically like “there’s no way that tattoo can be covered with a watercolor tattoo or anything remotely that organic, it’s too blocky.”
which, maybe he’s right, but i kinda got the impression that this guy wasn’t super into watercolor tattoos/not willing to spend the time on my tattoo in general? he seemed rather busy
so anyways i am tryna find a watercolor artist who would be willing to create a design around my current tattoo

Beauty in every sense of the word
What would have once sounded like a “far-fetched feminist fantasy” – women forming the majority of a parliament – is a reality in Rwanda.
In fact, women are making gains throughout Africa, but these achievements have been met with a loud silence from the western feminist movement.
Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.
And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive.
