This is Karla Valentine. She’s from Suffolk, UK and she had a job as a mid-day assistant at a school in Suffolk that told her she was setting a bad example for the children by having tattoos and piercings.

Miami Ink Designs!

She was (heavily) tattooed when she was hired at the school, and believes it was “ok” for them because it was winter and she was covered due to the cold. As summer approached however, her clothing became lighter and lighter and the complaints began.

“I was promptly issued with a “standards of dress” guide. It said that visible tattoos and facial piercings were not setting a good example and should be covered up. This was the first bit of communication I had received during my job.” says Karla

After deciding she didn’t feel comfortable working at a place that didn’t believe she was capable because of her skin, she submitted her resignation.

There were several meetings among Karla and the faculty, but she said didn’t feel she “should have to fight to justify that I’m a hard worker and a decent person.”

She expressed her sadness at the narrow minded intolerance of adults; who themselves are responsible for setting an example for these children.

To add to the nonsense of it all, the school had an in house fair which included (of all things) a temporary tattoo both.

In my opinion, they may as well have started shouting, “WITCH!” and “BURN HER!”, as they felt their chests swell with pride.

As always; show some love if you got it by clickin’ my links. These guys ( Miami Ink Tattoo Designs) pay a a little on the bills when ya do, and I ain’t mad at that.

Today i got my Darth Vader thigh tattoo! I sat for 4 1/2 hrs straight through with no breaks and it was worth it. We both had so much fun with the tattoo, i’m stoked beyond measure by how great this turned out. I just wanted to show you the progress pictures! Sorry for those who follow me on instagram (@itsbatgirl) and got spammed by them all, it was just amazing seeing how it came together hour by hour. 

Ok, tumblr. Now you’re doing it on purpose.
Not twenty minutes ago, I ran across a picture of Vader and R2-D2 in (what I think) were classic cameo frames. I thought, “ah, a boy and his astromech…”
Then my phone crashed and I can’t find it again.

Respect to the progression photoset

At the risk of spending TOO MUCH time diggin’ on Ink from a galaxy far far away, I have to credit where it’s due. I love this tatt. It’s an original spin on a traditional layout. Huge props to the collector here for stickin’ it out for the whole piece and to artist for gettin’ it done proper.

Do you,
