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 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?

As a young girl I grew up with Barbie dolls. Now almost all of them are either in some box in my parent’s basement or were given away to younger cousins. But Barbie has now moved into the modern times, and Mattel has introduced a new collector Barbie that is covered in tattoos.
This Barbie sells for $50, so this pricy Barbie isn’t exactly for play. Collectors want this doll, and since its release and up to this day, this Barbie is sold out . Tattoo Barbie is actually named Tokidoki Barbie. She sports a short pink bob, black shirt with a heart and cross bones, cheetah leggings and a dog. But the most distinctive aspect of this doll is the fact that she has tattoos everywhere, including her arms, chest and back.
While this Barbie is meant to be sold as a collector’s item, it is drawing some huge criticism from parents, Christian groups, etc. Some parents have said that Barbie is a role model, and they do not want their children to grow up and aspire to have tattoos. While some people defend this Barbie, stating that tattoo artists’ children can now have a Barbie that is more fit in their lifestyle, most people are against this Barbie.

Every been such a huge fan on something, that you decided to get it tattooed on you? Seems a little silly to me, but I’ve actually seen a large amount of people with tattoos like this.
I can understand a sports related tattoo, if you played on that winning team. But as far as bands, or books people do understand that these feelings change. A band can put out a new CD and they can hate it, it’s happened before.
What do you think about fan based tattoos?
