miki-quinn:

plus sized models are JUST as unrealistic as skinny models.

They have been elongated, their cellulite has been brushed out, waists pinched and hips widened and rounded.

It makes us think “I’m not even plus sized pretty” when NO-ONE IS.

They aren’t being forward thinking.

They aren’t embracing body positivity

They’ve just creating another unrealistic standard for women to hate themselves for.

But the wage gap varies significantly by race, according to an analysis from the research organization AAUW. While white women experienced that 78 percent figure, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women made 65 percent of what white men made in 2013, African-American women made 64 percent, American Indian and Alaska Native women made 59 percent, and Hispanic women made just 54 percent. Asian-American women are the only group doing better than white women, making 90 percent of white men’s earnings.

Woah, staggering.

My car is packed to the brim with all my tattooing supplies, cupcakes and flowers from some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. My favorite part of tattooing was talking with all of you and getting to hear and be apart of your lives. Tattooing these last 3 years have been tough on me emotionally and physically.. (As is any job that isn’t a proper fit) But the part that made it all worth it was my friends and family and the fun everyone brought into my life. View Larger
