Oh, he talks to the press about alllll the celebs he’s tattooed. Justin Bieber, Cara Delevingne, the Jenners... I assume they all consent to it, but it’s like, epic levels of starfucking.

E’erone’s talking about how thirsty Drake is, but can we talk about how goddamned parched Rihanna’s tattoo artist is? This fucking guy.

(Though I will say his shop employs some absolutely incredible artists, so. I’ll give him that.)

Hey now, let’s just be grateful that the Big Bang Theory didn’t get ALL THE NOMINATIONS again this year.

J. Crew doesn’t seem to understand that no one wants to spend hundreds on a J. Crew t-shirt or whatever. If I had that kind of disposable income, I’d be going straight for the real designer label shit. (Which, by the way, doesn’t really fall apart after one wear, I might add.)

I definitely understand where you’re coming from, but I do think the artist-client relationship changes when the canvas the artist works on is someone’s body—there’s an intimacy there that isn’t quite the same as commissioning a piece of art on a traditional canvas. Read more

Getting a tattoo when you’re not like, part of the subculture of tattoos, can be a weird, kind of frustrating experience (I say this as someone who has a number of non-visible tattoos, but who is a very white-collar, corporate button-up type). There’s definitely a push and pull between the client and artist (it’s Read more

This has happened to me, too. It’s actually kind of frightening when you recover from the experience and you’re able to realize it was psychosomatic. That your brain can have THAT MUCH power is both amazing and scary.

Ah, I think that raises an interesting point—there's a blurry line between "bloggers" and "journalists" for these purposes, and that probably impacts Brandi's decision to keep v. give away these items. It really depends on what you consider yourself and your platform. Read more

Yep. I work in marketing, and the expectation (and even then, the FTC isn't going to come swooping in on you; they have bigger fish to fry than lifestyle bloggers) is that you'll disclose anything you received for promotional consideration, or that you'll disclose at any point if a company you're discussing has Read more

THIS THIS THIS. I don't like Megan as a character because she's consistently proven herself to be manipulative and downright nasty at times. The way she lied to keep Don & Stephanie apart last season still breaks my heart. Read more

I mean, what better way for these dudes to broadcast that they’re ALWAYS THINKING WITH THEIR BONERS.

I always ask the assistant who's helping me for their name when they take me back to the sinks. When I'm done with the service and at the front desk, I give the receptionist the tip and tell them it's for So-and-So. It's less awk than putting them on the spot with a fiver, and it's always nice to know the names of the Read more

Tipping is so loaded. But in your shoes, I would've tipped 20% of the normal service price to each technician (e.g., if the mani is normally $20 and the pedi $25, the mani tech would get $4 and the pedi tech would get $5). As a rule, I don't tip on the discounted price and I always tip each tech who's worked on me Read more
