I few weeks ago I started using tumblr as an activity for MIS3538. It’s simplicity of use got me hooked right away. Tumblr uses the aspect of reblogs, and likes to share content. Once you create a blog and customize everything to your liking then you’re free to post your own content or reblog someone elses. You can post text, video, music, pictures, quotes, links and chats. Each type of post has their own design, so after using the site for a bit you’ll learn which is which. If you don’t want to post anything originally yours then you can reblog others material. This is done simply by following them and clicking the reblog button when content shows on your dashboard, or by browsing other blogs and reblogging a certain post on their tumblr.
One aspect I really enjoyed about tumblr is their blogs that create a community. I’ll specifically focus on fytattoos. This tumblr blog allows tumblr users to post pictures and a description about their tattoo(s). Yet this site still filters out tattoos, and only looks for quality photos and obviously nothing inappropriate can be displayed. Another aspect that tumblr allows is a reply feature on posts. So you can reblog a tattoo you like and add a comment, or reply to the post and leave a private comment. It allows a way for fellow tattoo enthusiasts to network.
In the end, I think tumblr is a great blogging site no matter what your interests are you. So many people use this site that you’re bound to find friends who use it, along with finding content that fulfills yours interests. Happy Blogging!!

Tattoos have become such a common place in society that even celebrities are sporting a good amount anymore. Not only do rappers have them, but movie stars, singers, and athletes have some sort of tattoo now a days. While it may seem frowned upon in the acting industry, the advancements in makeup and editing have allowed producers to easily remove a tattoo, while some may choose to showcase an actor’s tattoos. Some of the more famous tattoos are shown below:

Tattoos are a type of art, in my opinion. They represent you as a person and how you choose to express yourself. This is portrayed through any medium of art also.
An interesting type of tattoos that I’ve seen has been tattoos of famous works of art. Not only are these tattoos beautifully done, but the details in them reflect the original piece of art so well. My favorite is Starry Night. While I could never go so far as to get this tattooed on myself, I’ll just stick with hanging a print in my room, people that have gotten this tattooed have done so in many forms. Whether it’s a full sleeve, or a back piece, Starry Night is still as beautiful as it was origionally intended to be.
While Starry Night is my favorite, other famous pieces have been beautifully tattooed as well. Some of them can be seen below:
Would you ever get a tattoo of a famous piece of art, or would it scare you to much that it wouldn’t come out as beautiful as the original?
