Look, #FossilFriday is smiling at you!
This fossil is Diadectes phaseolinus, and it lived in the Early Permian, about 280 million years ago. The anthracosaurs that gave rise to the amniotes—true land animals with watertight eggs—probably looked something like Diadectes. Diadectes shows the general form of early amniote relatives: well developed limbs clearly capable of terrestrial locomotion, but a posture that is sprawling, not erect, like that of many later amniotes. What Diadectes ate is unknown, but it had complex, molarlike teeth and may have been a plant-eater. 
This fossil is located in the Museum’s Hall of Vertebrate Origins.

unfrickable:

do not sexualize young girls.
yes, I am kink shaming you. 
because you should be ashamed of yourself
for sexualizing young girls, and
no one’s sexual liberation is more important
than protecting young girls.

I need feminism because when a man cheats the woman he chats with is called the slut, not HIM.

justtraditionaltattoos said: Hello! I'm sorry you don't like my silly little Naruto tattoo. Any chance you could remove it from your blog? I decided due to the nature of Tumblr it's probably best to just delete it. I'd hate to be spread around the bad tattoo blogs. Thanks very much! Love your blog by the way, it's great to see women being more appreciated in the tattooing community.

ladiesofthetrade:

I’ve gone ahead and deleted it, because you asked so nicely and I get it, Tumblr can be ruthless sometimes, and I’m not about internet hate. I’m about open discussion, and respect. 

That being said, I’m assuming you are white, and anglo judging by how well you speak english and how pale your skin in the picture is. It’s a little insulting to real life Japanese people for you to have their language tattooed on you permanently. (In fact, if I understand correctly, in Japanese culture tattoos of any kind are WAY more taboo than ours, like …you can’t even get into certain bath houses if you have them.) 

I, for example, as a Chicana, HATE seeing white people with sugar skulls tattooed on them. They haven’t celebrated the lives of loved ones lost on Dia de los Muertos! They don’t know the traditions! They. don’t. get it!

And you, you don’t speak Japanese, nor are you from Japan (presumably) so your tattoo is problematic. It’s fine to like Naruto, that’s intended for people everywhere to enjoy, so maybe to add context to the writing you have you can add an awesome Naruto design to each of your knee caps. I think that’d look bad ass, and I think that would make your existing tattoo less problematic. (Or you could cover it up, I don’t think that’s be too difficult either.)

I appreciate that you like the blog, and I’m sorry if this came off as curt, but everyone needs to be educated on these things. It’s one very big reason why we maintain this blog, to educate people not only on tattoo etiquette/tattoo standards, but also tattoo culture and what is and what is not appropriate/offensive.

Admins, feel free to add your two cents <3
