Calf Tattoos

I got a birthmark on my left calf, and I want to cover it up with a tattoo. I'm a tattoo virgin but I checked out a few shops for estimates. They said I needed to come up with the artwork so looking for some inspiration. I like the look of the yakuza tattoos.


favorite art/design theory reads?

obviously for design, steven heller is sort of one of those leading authors to keep track of.

but i'm wondering, what are your favorite theory reads for either design or art? i am talking in both the capacity of published literature or ongoing blogs.

for books, the looking closer series was good, and things like susan sontag and even aspects of some philosophy (hume is a personal favorite). for blogs, stuff like design observer.

i dunno. what do you all read to keep your theoretical interests / mindset active?


SASS Math function

Anyone here good with math and creating functions with SASS. I created an equation that accomplishes what I want, but it's really inelegant. I know it can be written more efficiently. Anyone want to give it a go?

Here's what I have.
@mixin adjust-vertical-rhythm($number, $more-space-above:0, $more-space-below:0) {
margin-top: ((10 - ($number % 10)) * 1px) + ($inuit-base-line-height * $more-space-above);
margin-bottom: ($inuit-base-line-height - (10 - ($number % 10))) + ($inuit-base-line-height * $more-space-below);

Wordpress Gallery tags

I am looking for a Gallery plugin for Wordpress where I can upload images and give them tags/categories e.g red, door, window.

Then I can use a short code to place selections of these grouped images into the page throughout the site. Some images might have multiple tags/categories so feature in different galleries.

I see you can do this with nexgen gallery, but does anyone know anything else?

Sites to sell shit

Anyone know of any platforms that would allow someone to set up a site along the lines of istockphoto / envato / etsy - where individuals can sign up to a marketplace to sell their wares.
The owner of the site would take a little cut and the creator of the content would get their money.


Your Superpower?

what side do you choose?
what country would you move to to avoid the whole thing?


Your Superpower?

If you could pick one superpower to use at will, what power / ability would you want?

The catch: For every use of this power, there must be a repercussion on you, or something that hinders you from using it all the time. Ex: if flying were your superpower, after each flight you get 24 hour constant diarrhea.

So what would your superpower be, and what would the repercussion be?
