Ironic, Love, and Some More: library-mermaid A little girl and her mom were looking at me at the coffee shop this morning and I heard her mom say "go on, it's ok!" and the little girl shuffled up to me and said "ex-cuse me please, do you have to put on your tattoos by yourself every DAY or does your mom help you?" I am dying i have a question about tattoos and appropriation okay so hopefully this makes sense. i really like β€˜japanese’ style tattoos ( i’m not sure if that the official name cause im not an artist or that deep into the art game ) but and would really love to get a tattoo in that style you know ? i am just wondering since i am not japanese if that is appropriation cause i’ve seen a lot of mixed opinions ( obviously i want people from japan to answer this but all opinions welcome :) like obviously i’m not gonna get like any japanese religious figures or anything i know is inappropriate or wrong or anything i just really love the style and everything and i’m just wondering is that wrong ??? do you get what i mean ( i also really like @snitchery sleeve ) please educate me some more on appropriation and appreciation cause i feel there’s a very fine line between the two but that’s probably cause i don’t know much :) thank you for your help ( not japanese characters like words btw i see a lot of people saying don’t get something the artist could mess with the spelling it’s not words )

Memes, Respect, and Slick: 1312 SQ VETERAN Thank you. We Are Veterans - We've been called Grunts and Jarheads, Squids and Swabbies, Fly boys and G.I. These were not derogatory terms. These were term of endearment and respect between us. We were Trackers, Tankers, Artillery and Gunners, Fuelers, Mechanics, Pilots and Drivers. Some have seen the horrors of war, while others served between conflicts. There are those who have never heard a shot fired in anger, while others have had those angry shots fired at them. Stories of the scars are proclaimed loudly by some and talked about in muted conversation by others. There are those who have put it all behind them and those who wish they could forget and that the nightmares would stop. Whether their breast is covered with "fruit salad" or a single ribbon bar, the crossed rifles of an expert or the "toilet bowl" of a beginner. Our uniforms were all different. We had greens, blues, whites and cracker jacks. We either wore stripes or bars. Some had rockers while occasionally we seen a "slick sleeve" standing in fear a SGT Major with eight hash marks. Their epaulets were adorned with everything from "butter bars" to glistening in the sun with four stars - It don't matter in which branch they chose to serve, despite their MOS, whether or not they shed their blood for a cause greater than themselves, they (we) all share one common title, VETERAN. The eleventh day of the eleven month is set aside to honor those who have served. Those who answered a calling that not all have heard. Those who would lay down their lives if that is what it took - Those who wore a uniform that looked like the one worn by thousands of others before and after them. If you answered the call, wore the uniform, stood tall during colors and still shed a tear during the National Anthem, may I join millions of other Americans on this day and say, Thank You and Happy Veterans Day.
