Filling in the Lines: covering up your ink with makeup!

 In the past decade alone two things are certain. Respectively tattoos and cosplay have become more common. As it stands 36% of Americans age 18-25 have at least one tattoo. Given the average age of con goers and cosplayers alike I KNOW some of you have tattoos. And as the hobby of cosplay becomes an art form as well some of you find yourself wondering, ” My character doesn’t have MY tattoos, do I cover up my ink?”

That is up to you, I say wear it loud and proud (especially if its geeky).

Treat it nicely even if you’re just covering up! Continue reading

10 Gaming Experiences I Wish To Relive

Gaming has played a significant role in my life. In fact, my earliest memory from childhood is playing a video game.

With who knows how many years of in-game experiences I’ve racked up since I was a kid, some have held a dear place in my memory and heart.
