Today on Cool Stuff in the Mail: Pen & Ink (Oct. 7) tells the stories behind famous and ordinary people’s tattoos. Here are some highlights:

  • Writer Roxane Gay on her arm tattoos: “I hardly remember not hating my body. I got most of my seven arm tattoos when I was nineteen. I wanted to be able to look at my body and see something I didn’t loathe, that was part of my body by my choosing entirely. Really, that’s all I ever wanted.” (Side note: Did you hear her Weekend Edition interview?)
  • Master’s degree student Kriste York on her map tattoo: “I marked my 40th birthday with this tattoo, thus becoming a human RV. Once a year I’ll fill in the states I’ve visited since my last birthday, with the goal of coloring them all in before I turn fifty in 2023. I live in Oregon and the words in the banner are our state motto: ‘She flies with her own wings.’”
  • Copywriter Christine Hostetler on her bee tattoo: “When we were little, my sister and I would race after bees in the lavender bushes and try to pet them without getting stung. [Ed. Note: !?!?!?!] We were in awe of their tiny stingers that could bring a grown man down.”
  • Writer Chris Colin on his bunny tattoo: “I got this tattoo because I suspected one day I would think it would be stupid. I wanted to mark time, or mark the me that thought it was a good idea.”

Anonymous said: What are your thoughts on what marvel is doing now? Will it have any kind of affect on the movie universe?

royalboiler:

I don’ cuuure.

Look at this thing: This might be a good car if you were a Babar style Elephant that lived among men in human clothes. You could travel accross the country with some bird dudes who could scout ahead and then have the roof rack to land on and you wouldn’t even have to stop.

I wonder if the steering wheel would need to be fixed for elephant hands though..

Art Spiegelman curates a selection of his favourite comic in the latest Artforum!

WORD is basically amazing and full of wonderful people who keep a library of Buffy gifs. They’re also hosting a new sci-fi book club called Words for Nerds because awesome.

Also also when you sign up for WORDs for Nerds you get an extra special hand-selected animated gif in your welcome email. So, you know. Just saying.

There is no barrier and no glass ceiling. I have role models who came before me, and feel like I’m in a position to lead by example. A young girl reading comics today does not have to wonder if there is a place for her in this industry!
