‘Business is a risk and everything is a risk’: new tattoo studio opens in Wasaga – simcoe.com09.26.20

A Canadian military veterans new business venture is an homage to the country he served, and those with whom he served.

Rustuk (pronounced rustic) Ink opened in early September at 1256 Mosley St., Unit 4.

Its a "luxury" tattoo studio, boasting individual rooms where clients can watch TV or listen to their own music in private.

The spa-like studio reflects the changing image of tattoo parlours; no longer are they hole-in-the-wall, back-alley shops, but more like doctors offices, with an emphasis on sterilized equipment and cleanliness protocols.

The name of the studio is intended to evoke our countrys natural heritage.

One thing we find a lot of healing through as Canadians is the outdoors, said owner Graham Trude. Its a little bit more of that rustic-y feeling. We wanted to give it a name that would support Canada, and something we could really brand with.

Even so, Trude acknowledged, tattoos still have a bit of a stigma attached to them.

Not a lot of people are exactly comfortable with showing them off, Trude said. It is something in the military and first response community that its nothing to be ashamed of: its how people enjoy the art, how people express their emotions, (recognize) loved ones, lost ones, memories.

Trude spent five years serving in Canadas military, including a nine-month tour in Afghanistan. But when he was discharged, he found he was ill-equipped for a career out of uniform.

I had five of the best years of my life that I put in the military (but) when I first came home, there were a ton of jobs I was not eligible to get; I couldnt even get a job at Marks Work Wearhouse, he said.

Trude employs three artists, and hopes to be able to offer a position to a retired veteran or first responder.

What were finding are a ton of veterans who are (retiring) out of the military, or who are being medically released with post-traumatic stress, theyre having a hard time getting a job, he said.

He came up with a business plan for the studio during the pandemic.

We do have to carry on living our lives, and we can do that in the safest way and manner possible, he said. It was something that shocked me at first, but business is a risk and everything is a risk, and I can either sit back and wait or I can just do it.

Chinese glam-mas are taking the internet by storm: Cooler than Ill ever be – Yahoo Sports09.26.20

A group of fashionable women over 60 have taken Beijing by storm. Dubbed "glam-mas," the women went viral this summer when a video of them strutting down the street in traditional qipao dresses garnered over 50 million views in a day, according to Reuters.

The group is made up of retired models who met at a modeling training course 20 years ago.Its club members embrace fashion and beauty at any age simply by sharing their divine outfits on social media.

Your life is grey if you are always afraid of aging and death, 64-year-old glam-ma member, Lin Wei,told Reuters. You are old, you have wrinkles, you dont have too much energy or your figure becomes baggy. But this is something you cant go against, so you need to face it with positivity.

When the pandemic meant that seniors had to stay indoors, the group began creating videos of their lifestyle and posting them online. They have since amassed over a million followers on Douyin, a Chinese video-sharing platform and 472,000 followers on TikTok under their handle, fashion_grannies.

The women mixtraditional and modern fashion,but no matter what theyre wearing its always chic. Some days they have coordinateddenim outfits, while on others theyre rockingornate hanfu garments.

Story continues

But the crewsmost popular TikTok video might be its most edgy. The women sport black qipao with black combat boots. Their looks are decked out with silver chain embellishments, trendy triangle sunglasses and leather belts. And like in all of their videos, the glam-mas have got attitude.

The video racked up 3.1 million views. TikTok users were dazzled.

Theyre cooler than Ill ever be,one user wrote.

I screamed. Theyre so beautiful,another said.

This is too much for my little heart,someone added.

What’s the Path to Equity in Health? – Yale Insights09.26.20

Being a physician is already extremely time-consuming and takes a lot of training. How did you start adding equity in healthcare as a focus?

Yes, the clinical training on the route to becoming a physician is a real commitmentits intense; it is emotionally, psychologically taxing and draining. But along that journey, I dont know how I could have not become interested in equity, because youre witness to inequities every day, starting in medical school.

We didnt even really have the language back when I was a medical student. There wasnt the disparity language, we didnt have social determinative health language, we didnt have equity language or health justice language. But I was president of our Student National Medical Association, which is the student arm of the National Medical Association, which was founded essentially because physicians of African descent in the United States were excluded from organized professional societies, and basically were excluded then from getting privileges and licenses to practice in hospitals. That was one of the structural tools used to segregate healthcare.

So even though it wasnt explicit, the fact that the SNMA existed spoke to the legacy of discrimination and bias in our healthcare system. As a physician, I identify as somebody of African descent, understanding that I was trying to make my way in a system that had resisted, for so long, my presence. And understanding as well what it meant to be a patient of color moving through that same system that had, for a long time, resisted their presence.

I was compelled to think about healthcare inequity as a trainee, as someone not in a power position. If a patient of color saw me enter the room, 9.9 times out of 10, there would be a comment made before their discharge about how reassuring it was for them to have somebody of color on their care team. And a lot of the time, if it was a patient not of color, they would make lots of assumptions about my role. To this day, as an attending physician at Yale, patients are constantly handing me their trays and asking me if I can call their doctor. And Im their attending physician of record, and we have met several times.

The role and influence of race within the healthcare system was, to me, through my lived experience, dominant and overwhelming, and was a lens through which to understand clinical medicine.As I learned clinical practice, I also had to grapple with these social realities that manifest themselves within the healthcare system.

What was the point when you took on health equity in a more formal way?

In medical school, I had an opportunity through SNMA and some key faculty to understand a little bit more about what it meant to be a person of color in this profession. And during my residency, which was extremely eye-opening, I trained at Brigham and Womens Hospital. I think part of our hidden curriculum as residents was our duty to think about ways to improve health and outcomes for populations and communities, in addition to taking care of that individual patient in front of us.

I had just incredible mentors at the Brigham. I had Dr. JudyAnn Bigby, who was my official program advisor when I was a resident. She later went on to become the secretary of health and human services for the State of Massachusetts. She was a role model as a health equity researcher, advocate, policymaker. Paul Farmer was one of my attendings at the Brigham; he is someone who has made incredible imprints across the globe in terms of thinking about global health and global health equity. I was surrounded by people who were really motivated by that shared value of equity, so I started thinking about it a lot. Thats when I said, I need more training in this.

My big sib in the program was Sonia Angell, who is now health commissioner for the State of California. She was heading off to do the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program, a two-year program for physicians giving you a skill set to become healthcare leaders. Sonia said, You should consider this program. I looked at the program and I came and interviewed at the Yale site and I was fortunate enough to be accepted.

The fellowship was amazing. Harlan Krumholz and Betsy Bradley were the co-directors at the time. Howard Forman, who I now work with on the Pozen-Commonwealth Fund Fellowship, was one of my faculty members. Everything I learned about policy, I learned from Howie.

There was just amazing faculty talent in the Clinical Scholars Program. And that gave me the tool kit. I knew already that I was on a path to thinking about health equity, and thats what I wanted to focus on. And the fellowship program at Yale gave me that opportunity to build out that armamentarium.

When you are deciding whether to take something on, what are the values that you apply to say, This is worth my time?

I give advice to junior faculty members all the time about how you approach this. You have to answer the questions, Why you? and Why now? And the answer needs to be, Because there would be nobody else, and because the door will close if you dont do it. Thats the advice I try to take. Does it have to be me, essentially? Is there anybody else who can do this, who might be better suited to do this, quite frankly, than I am? Is it an opportunity for me to give a chance to someone else and try to continue to pay forward the sponsorship and mentoring that I received?

And then, Does it have to be today? Is this something that, if I say no to today, its going to circle back? Or is this just once?

My inclination is to say yes. The work I do, it can sometimes feel desperate. Reporters will often say, Oh, thats such a downer. But to me, theres optimism, theres hope, theres opportunity in the challenge, and I find the work just deeply joy making. So I do try to say yes, and probably say yes more often than I should.

How does the Pozen-Commonwealth Fund Fellowship fit into your long-term personal project?

What so many of us enjoy about the work that we do is the opportunity for creativity. The inception of something, either a program or a research project, is this chance to just invent and imagine.

I remember very clearly that Howie and I were at the graduation ceremony for the Clinical Scholars Program, which is now the National Clinician Scholars Program, and Howie said, What would you think about us working on a proposal together for the Commonwealth Fund for a fellowship focused on health equity? Thats the stuff that gets you really excited.

Its been a real team effort with everyone at SOM to bring that program into being. This program is a tangible recognition that we all need to be focused on health equity; this isnt a concept that is siloed to, lets say a school of public health or a school of medicine. We need the skill set from across all these different professional graduate schools to really begin to make that progress that I think we can make to achieve health equity.

I also teach a class on population health and health equity, along with Brad Richards as my co-instructor, which is offered to the second-years in the healthcare track for the EMBA program. I think its pretty unique at a business school anywhere to say, Not only are we going to support a fellowship program that has the explicit mission of creating leaders in the healthcare equity space, but also that we see the value in having a curricular component that makes sure all of our healthcare students have an opportunity to learn more about disparities and about what they can do to promote equity.

Has everything that has happened in 2020 had an effect on your thinking about these issues and how to tackle them?

It seems like theres an awakening around this question of disparities, particularly when it comes to race and ethnicity. I have an appreciation for the curiosity that Im experiencing from people who are eager and hungry to learn more. I like now being able to get up in front of audiences and not having to justify my existence, which is what it can often feel like.

Its always going to be pushing a boulder uphill. Thats what it means to be in this business of healthcare equity, where we have to face hard questions about resource distribution. But the boulder is just a little bit lighter. If I have 45 minutes, maybe I dont have to spend the entire time trying to explain that disparities are real. Is this moment the opportunity to start conversations with how can we get to solutions? And where are those solutions and how can we find them?

We have an amazing network of health equity researchers across the country. I think everyone is holding their breath a little bit to see how much progress we can make at this particular moment in time so that we dont return to how things were.

This year, some people have said, Oh, itd be great to get back to where we were. And I dont think were trying to get back to where we were. Were trying to get to a different place that is better. I suffer from optimism and hope in moments like this, so I do think that were going to emerge differently.

When you talk to people, what do you tell them are the very top-line things that we should be doing to make a dent?

We need equitable access to high-quality healthcare. And every word in that sentence matters.

We need a lot outside of the healthcare sector. Its about all the structural realities that play into the realization of inequity more broadly. The disproportionate representation of brown and Black people in those low-wage, frontline jobs that were deemed essential during the pandemicthats a structural reality. To get to a place of equitable health outcomes, we have to have hard conversations about access to opportunity. Thats what we really need. We have a segregated, separate and not equal, educational system in this country.

When we talk about pre-existing conditions and COVID, theres one narrative that says, Oh, you have folks who are making bad choices with their diet and theyre not exercising, but theres never a mention of the fact that theyre living in neighborhoods exposed to environmental toxins. We dont speak to this. We dont speak to the fact that people live, not just in food deserts, but often in food swamps. I went blueberry picking yesterday. My kids have lots of fresh produce to eat. What does it mean to live somewhere where it takes you three buses and a train to get to somewhere that sells skim milk, or a fresh leafy green?

We have to step outside of healthcare if were serious. People always are shocked when I give this statistic, but we know that only about 20% of the variance in health outcomes we see is due to clinical care. So, as a physician, even though equitable access to high-quality healthcare is my tattoo, I still have to say that, at the end of the day, more than 70% of the variance is due to socioeconomic factors, to some of these behavioral factors that arent really choice-based at all. If you dont have a grocery store, you dont have choice.

If I had that magic wand right now, its about equitable access to high-quality healthcare and equitable access to opportunity.

Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott having career-best start to season while several top RBs have been lost to injury – The Dallas Morning News09.26.20

FRISCO The tattoo on Ezekiel Elliots stomach says Feed Me.

When the Cowboys' running back is asked what it means, hes direct: 'Feed Me' means give me the rock so I can go make a play.

And the Cowboys havent shied away from giving Elliott the ball during the first two weeks of the 2020 season. Through two weeks of the NFL season, hes third in rushing attempts (44), rushing yards (185) and touches (53) and fourth in all-purpose yards (249) and yards per game (92.5).

The 139 offensive snaps in which hes participated are the most in the first two weeks of a season in his career.

His increased usage, particularly as a receiver, has upped his touches. Coming into the season, the most Elliott touched the ball after Weeks 1 and 2 was 44 times his rookie year in 2016.

Elliott also does the little things, such as pass protection, an important element in 2020 with the Cowboys using rookie tackles in the early stages of this season. Elliott isnt afraid to get dirty, never has been, especially at the last minute to provide a block so quarterback Dak Prescott can throw downfield.

I think Ive had a good start this year, Elliott said Wednesday. Laid a good foundation for the season both as a runner and a blocker and out of the backfield. Yeah, just got to keep building on that.

Elliotts start is just another reminder how precious the running back position is in the NFL. Saquon Barkley and Christian McCaffrey, two elite running backs, are gone to injuries. Barkley will miss the season with a torn ACL, and McCaffrey is on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain. McCaffrey is expected to return at some point this season.

Durability is not an issue for Elliott. Hes missed just eight career games, because of suspension and rest, since coming into the NFL.

When a game is being played, Elliott is ready to set the tone. Its just one of many positive attributes he holds.

I think its just his ability to make an impact on every snap, right guard Zack Martin said. "I think we saw that on Sunday [vs. the Falcons]. Hes obviously running the ball, catching the ball out of the backfield.

When you watch the tape, hes doing a lot more. He did a great job on protection, not only with his man but also giving some help. A couple of times with our tackles, he came down and cracked the [defensive end]. Not only is that setting the tone physically for us but also helps our guys out on the edge, a ton.

On Sunday, the Cowboys face a Seahawks defense thats allowed the second-fewest rushing yards in the league (139). The running backs Seattle has faced are Atlantas Todd Gurley and Brian Hill and New Englands Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead, in addition to New England quarterback Cam Newton, who has the ability to get up field when the pocket breaks down.

But Elliott is the best running back Seattle will have faced so far.

Zeke looks in really, really good shape, and hes running the ball very, very hard, Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said.

Last season, Elliott held out of training camp looking for a new contract, which he got. He wasnt in football shape in the early stages, yet had 164 yards after two games. Even this season was a challenge for Elliott, with the pandemic keeping players away from team facilities and the offseason program.

Without a normal offseason, no preseason games and an abbreviated training camp, Elliott still reported in better shape in 2020.

I stayed the same weight, said Elliott, whos listed at 228 pounds. I slimmed [down] a little in the offseason because I didnt have the same access to the weight room and couldnt work out the same, so I naturally slimmed down a little. But once I got back in here and got that weight back on I know I am going to get a lot of touches, so my body has to be ready for that. I have done a good job in the past years [keeping my] weight to help me get through a season.

The Cowboys' star running back, a two-time rushing champion, is off to an impactful start that sort of fits that midsection tattoo.

Zeke obviously everyone knows as a runner, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore said. A phenomenal runner, a physical runner [who] gets some positive yards out of some ugly things at times, and thats the beauty of him.

Heres Ezekiel Elliotts numbers after the first two weeks of a season in his career.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott having career-best start to season while several top RBs have been lost to injury - The Dallas Morning News

Posted in Tattoo Trainingwith Comments Off on Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott having career-best start to season while several top RBs have been lost to injury – The Dallas Morning News

Dallas Cowboys news: Defense is looking for improvements – Blogging The Boys09.26.20

Before we get to the links themselves, lets throw this out because it seems encouraging.

Now on to our regularly scheduled news roundup.

Cowboys' Everson Griffen admits pass rush is struggling, will make specific adjustment to 'generate pressure' - Patrick Walker, CBSSports.comEverson Griffen doesn't think it's just his stance that needs to be addressed, either.

"First and foremost, I feel like us as a group we have to get lined up correctly," Griffen told media in a Zoom call on Wednesday. "We have to get lined up correctly. We have to play our gaps correctly and we have to not beat ourselves. We cannot beat ourselves.

"We have to get lined up correct, make the tackles and make the calls. We've got to get the ball back for offense. Our goal for this week is keep Russell in the pocket, don't let him scramble and we have to do that by getting back there -- generating pressure. These past two games, we haven't been generating pressure that well to be honest with you guys and I feel like we've got to do a better job at generating pressure.

"If that's putting big guys in the middle to get more push in the pocket, if that's switching it up, doing whatever we have to do to generate that push in the middle, whatever we have to do."

Defense Eyes Adjustments After First Two Games - Rob Phillips, DallasCowboys.comThe entire defense acknowledges the struggles. They are actively looking to get better.

Thursday, head coach Mike McCarthy said it's possible the defense will scale back the volume within the scheme to help reduce missed assignments. After all, it's only been five weeks of actual on-field work since camp began.

(Linebacker Jaylon) Smith agreed that approach could help.

"It's about us growing each and every week," he said. "The coaches are on the same page, and the players are on the same page, and we're just trying to do whatever it takes to get that much better each and every week.

How McCarthys belief in players over system should help Griffen, Lawrence Jon Machota, The AthleticIt's probably a good idea that Griffen and DeMarcus Lawrence may be back to putting a hand on the ground, which should make them more productive. It's even better to see head coach Mike McCarthy means what he says.

When youre throwing away good players because they dont fit your system, you got to take a hard look at your system, McCarthy said in February. If the guy is a good football player, he can play for me.

It appears McCarthy is sticking to his word. One of the reasons for the slow start up front defensively is that Lawrence and Griffen are playing a different style than they have in the past. Nolan has implemented more 3-4 looks up front, meaning that instead of rushing from a three-point stance with a hand on the ground, the edge rushers come off the ball from a standing position. While thats a perfect fit for Smith, Lawrence and Griffen have become Pro Bowl players because of what they have accomplished as 4-3 defensive ends.

And it sounds like they are going to get an opportunity to get back to what works best for them.

Trysten Hill Making an Impact in his Second Year - John Williams, Inside the StarThere are a lot of people that owe Trysten Hill an apology.

After Gerald McCoy was lost for the season with an injury, Hill was immediately thrust into first-team reps on defense. He didnt disappoint, earning the starting three-technique defensive tackle job out of training camp. So far, in the early going of 2020, hes flashed multiple times in both weeks one and two and is showing the skill and promise that made him a second-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Writers Blocks: Daks Big Opportunity - David Helman, DallasCowboy.comDak Prescott gets some love.

Prescott is off to a wonderful start in 2020. He's sitting on 716 yards through two games, which means he has a real shot to hit 1,000 yards after just three weeks. He hasn't thrown an interception in six games. He made a statement leading the Cowboys back from certain defeat just a week ago.

That's all well and good, but now he's got a chance to put the league on notice. It's easy to argue that Russell Wilson is playing better than anyone in the NFL right now, and he's a huge part of the reason why the Seahawks are one of the most impressive 2-0 teams in the league. The guy has thrown nine touchdowns compared to just 11 incompletions through two weeks. He's just absurd.

Those of us that follow the Cowboys' every move know how good Prescott can be. But I don't think the rest of the world has woken up to the possibility that he is on that level.

I'm not saying it'll happen, but that would certainly change if he outduels Wilson on Sunday. If Prescott can build on his Week 2 performance in a win this weekend, he's going to rocket to the top of the league consciousness.

Teds Film Room: These three quarterback/play-caller duos need more respect Ted Nguyen, The AthleticMore on Dak.

Dak Prescott has been a very good quarterback since he took over as the Cowboys starter in his rookie year in 2016. Hes had his ups and downs, so its understandable that there has been hesitancy to call him elite. In his early years, the offense was focused around running back Ezekiel Elliott and the teams incredible offensive line. However, last season, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore took over and made Prescott the driving force of the offense. Prescott responded with his first 30-touchdown season. Still, that wasnt enough for the Cowboys to sign Prescott to a big extension, so he is playing on the franchise tag. This season, hes trying to prove that he deserves to get paid like an elite quarterback.

After a shaky start against the Rams with one of the top defenses in the NFL Prescott ripped the Falcons secondary to shreds without his starting left and right tackles. Against the Falcons, he aided his protection with disciplined pocket depth. Some young quarterbacks will start drifting too deep when they feel the heat, making it difficult for their tackles to block because it gives edge rushers an easier angle to attack the pocket. Prescott was very disciplined by dropping to the proper depth and stepping up into the pocket despite a lot of pressure early in the game.

With Seahawks up next, Cowboys need to find winning ways on the road - Todd Archer, Dallas Cowboys Blog- ESPNThe famed 12th man is not going to be there when the Cowboys play the Seahawks on Sunday. Will that be a plus for Dallas?

Including the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams, the Cowboys have lost four straight road games, failed to score a touchdown in two of the games and have crossed the end zone five times in their past 45 possessions. Three of those touchdowns came in the fourth quarter of a 31-24 loss to the Chicago Bears that was not as close as the final score indicated.

"It's just very quiet," Moore said. "You've got to bring your own juice, energy, excitement while still playing simple execution football. We learned from the experience of going to L.A. and that unique environment. Obviously, at home it was awesome to have a little bit of natural enthusiasm of the crowd and with the energy that's in the stadium. We were able to benefit, hopefully, from that. Obviously, we're back to probably no crowd [in Seattle] and I think we'll be prepared for it."

Cowboys McCarthy Explains Why I Dont Believe In Gambling - Mike Fisher, SI Cowboys MavenThe Cowboys went for it on fourth down with a couple of failed fake punts against the Falcons, and some think those were foolish gambles. But Mike McCarthy doesn't see it that way.

"The Gambler''? No.

McCarthy made it abundantly clear: You do things with a preparation base behind it. ... It's about keeping the ball in the players' hands, and about them having the tools and the confidence ... Everything you do is done with good intent, with preparation.

"I'm not a 'gambler.' But I definitely would like to think of it as aggressive.''

Amari Disappointed With His One-Handed Catch - Jonny Auping, DallasCowboys.comIt was one of the most spectacular plays in a most amazing game. But it still wasn't good enough for Amari Cooper - and you have to love that.

"I wish I would have been able to run full speed," a frustrated Cooper said on Thursday. "I couldn't do what I wanted to do. Obviously it would have been a touchdown."

Cooper said that a lingering foot injury decreased his speed and was the explanation for what seemed like an overthrow. "It's a lot better [now]," Cooper updated the media on Thursday. "I've been running full speed."

Cooper has proven that he's thrived to get better since he arrived in Dallas via trade from the Raiders, and his progress and chemistry with Dak Prescott has surely helped the quarterback's young career as well. Cooper's ability to make a catch like the one he made against Atlanta wasn't luck and athleticism. It was the result of conscious and deliberate practice.

"I practice one-handed catches [as if] I can only catch them with one hand," Cooper explained. "Usually it sticks. But it didn't stick. So I had to bobble it and catch it."

Dallas Cowboys: How Ezekiel Elliott decided to get Feed Me tattoo- Jori Epstein, USA Today

Why is a tattoo such a news item? (Typed unironically while adding story about the tattoo to the news links article.)

Thats definitely Zekes personality and he does bring a lot of energy to the team because he has a mentality that he wants to be fed, wide receiver Amari Cooper said. Obviously, the world knows he wants to be fed and he wants to help the team in any way he can.

Cooper laughs recalling the July workout when Elliott showed up to Prescotts home less than 24 hours after Guzman completed the Feed Me tattoo. Elliotts abdomen was still freshly swollen.

You know, Cooper said, I like it.

Dallas Cowboys' Dak Prescott, Atlanta Falcons' Hayden Hurst to team up for suicide prevention - Todd Archer, ESPNSome things are far bigger than football. This is great to see.

Starting next offseason, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst plan to work together in suicide prevention.

Hurst approached Prescott after the Cowboys' 40-39 win Sunday in a moment that was caught on camera.

Hurst has been open about attempting suicide and dealing with anxiety and depression. Prescott's brother, Jace, died by suicide in April, and the quarterback discussed his feelings of depression during the early parts of the coronavirus pandemic.

Dolly Parton Finally Puts Longtime Tattoo Rumors to Rest – Consequence of Sound09.26.20

For years, Dolly Parton fans have speculated that the country legend always wears long-sleeve shirts because shes actually covered in tattoos. On Wednesday, Parton finally put the widely circulated, juicy rumor to rest.

In an exclusive interview with People, the Queen of Nashville confirmed that she does have some ink; however, its not exactly everywhere. I do have some tattoos, thats true, the 74-year-old said. But theyre tasteful. Im not a tattoo girl.

So, no, Parton doesnt look like a Soundcloud rapper beneath those gingham tops, contrary to the gossip making the rounds. While she didnt provide photographs of the tats shedoes have, the Grammy winner did describe some of them, as well offered their backstories.

My tattoos are pretty, theyre artful and they usually started out to cover some scar, not to make a big statement, explained Parton. Ribbons and bows and butterflies are the things that I have. I was very sick for a while and I had to wear a feeding tube. It left a little indention in my side and I didnt like it because Im so fair that scars turn purple on me.

In typical inspirational Dolly Parton fashion, she decided to turn that reminder of an unpleasant health scare into something beautiful. I like to make positives out of negatives. I had a little beehive tattooed over it a little yellow-and-brown beehive with a tiny little bee on top of the hive, she continued. The mouth of it is that little sinkhole.

Additionally, Parton confirmed that she doesnt have any ink dedicated to her husband of 54 years, Carl Dean. No, hes tattooed on my heart, she stated. However, she didnt rule out the possibility of getting more down the line, just to give fans what they were hoping for. Who knows, I may get some more later. I may just have to get covered with tattoos just so everybody could be right!

Outside of putting rumors to bed, Parton has been a vocal political commentator in recent months. Over the summer she threw her full support behind Black Lives Matter, posing, Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? And last week she offered a touching tribute to the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Maybe a #BLM tattoo is on the horizon?

On the music front, her first Christmas album in 30 years,A Holly Dolly Christmas, is out October 2nd.

Editors Note: If youre thinking of getting some sweet ink this season, stay safe by picking up one of our custom face masks. A portion of the proceeds will benefit MusiCares COVID-19 Artist Relief fund supporting independent musicians.

GEN Z: Ill-advised tattoo for Generation Z – Leavenworth Times09.26.20

Chloe Berg


Last week we visited how little Gen Z knows about the Holocaust and World War II. This week, we have another incident between Gen Z and World War II. On the Gen Z-filled app TikTok, a user named Jordan Joann Williams recently shared a video encouraging other members of Gen Z (people born between the mid-late 90s and early 2010s) to get a tattoo of the letter "Z" with a strike through the middle. She wrote: "Okay Gen Z listen up!!! What if, now hear me out We all got a matching tattoo as not only a symbol of unity in our generation but also as a sign of rebellion."

What she did not know is that the symbol is a Nazi symbol. The symbol is called the Wolfsangel and was used by white supremacist groups and was once adopted by the Third Reich.Appropriated from an ancient runic symbol that was believed to be able to ward off wolves, the symbol has been used by a number of neo-Nazi organizations since World War II. Public exhibition of the symbol is actually illegal in Germany if its in connection with a white supremacist group.

Sadly, a few members of Gen Z have already gotten the tattoo who failed to do research about the symbol. The original video has been taken down by the user who then put out a statement saying that she was sorry and did not know the meaning. She has agreed to change the symbol into an equal sign instead of the previous symbol.

Chloe Berg is a Leavenworth native and student at Benedictine College.

Texas Democrat Hegar Says GOP Using Her Tattoos To Make Her Look RadicalBut They Conceal Battle Scars – Forbes09.26.20


Texas Democratic U.S. Senate candidate MJ Hegar said Thursday that a conservative super-PAC is using an image of her prominently displaying her tattoos to make her seem radicaltattoos that Hegar said she has to help cover shrapnel wounds received after her helicopter was shot down during military service in Afghanistan.

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate MJ Hegar bares her tattoo for supporters during her election night ... [+] party in Austin, Texas, Tuesday, March 3, 2020.

In a tweet Thursday, Hegar said she was damn proud of her tattoos and found it pretty funny that a conservative super-PAC was using an image featuring them to claim that Hegar is a radical liberal.

The image appears at the top of the webpage, which is paid for by the Texans for a Conservative Majority Super PAC.

Hegar is challenging three-term Republican incumbent John Cornyn for his U.S. Senate seat.

Cornyn has won each of his past three U.S. Senate elections by at least 11 points and defeated his Democratic challenger in 2014 by more than 27 points.

You think Im ashamed of them? They cover my shrapnel wounds from when my helicopter was shot down. Theyre a mark of my service to our country. Im damn proud of them, Hegar said.

Hegar was awarded the Purple Heart and the Distinguished Flying Cross in 2009 after a helicopter she was co-piloting in Afghanistan was shot down by the Taliban. Hegar would be wounded by shrapnel in the attack but managed to return fire. Hegar views her military service as a major advantage she has over previous Democrats that have run for office there, saying at a Texas Tribune event in 2019 that, We have not fielded a combat veteran as a Democrat in a statewide election in a state like Texas that is so pro-military and patriotic.

Polling shows an even tighter race at the top of the ticket this November, with President Donald Trump holding a slim lead of usually just a couple of points in most polls. If Biden carries Texas, he would be the first Democrat to do so in a presidential election since Jimmy Carter in 1976. Texas Democrats believe Biden has a real shot to win the state, where Democratic efforts have stepped up since Beto ORourke fell just short of unseating U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018. The states population is also growing quickly, especially among young and Latino demographics, groups that typically vote Democratic.

‘Mr Snake’: Meet the teacher who is France’s most tattooed man – The Jakarta Post – Jakarta Post09.26.20

By night he is Freaky Hoody, the most tattooed man in France, whose tongue and even eyes are inked.

By day he is Mr Helaine, primary school teacher.

"There is always a moment of stunned silence" when he first meets the children and the parents, Sylvain Helaine admitted.

"But when I introduce myself and they see that I am a teacher like all the others, it's cool," he told AFP.

No part of the 35-year-old's body has been left untouched by a tattooist's needle.

"Mr Snake", as some pupils call him, had to travel to Switzerland to get his eyes done -- something that is illegal in France.

"It was torture. They hold your eyes open and you feel the needle pierce" the white of your eye, he said.

'Don't do it!'

"And you never know what will happen, which is why I say to people, 'Don't do it!'

"But for me, I felt incomplete without it," said Helaine, who has spent 57,000 euros ($66,000) on his body art over the last eight years.

Having his tongue tattooed wasn't the most comfortable of experiences either.

"It was so sore, it tripled in size. I was drooling and I couldn't speak afterwards. I couldn't drink for 20 hours and it took two days for me to be able to eat."

Known as Freaky Hoody on social media, where he has nearly 60,000 followers, Helaine insists that he does not regret any of his tattoos, from the colored flowers on his shaved head to the demon head on his back.

"I am probably going to end up completely black at 80," he added.

Beyond his school in the suburbs of Paris, Freaky Hoody is something of a star on the tattoo scene.

Rather than doors being closed in his face, his tattoos have opened them for him.

"Model agencies have taken me on for films and television series. I've met (The Matrixdirector) Lana Wachowski as well as Mathieu Kassovitz," the star of The Bureauand director of the classic French film, La Haine.

'His eyes are scary'

Helaine "came out" as a body art icon at school three years ago when he was still living with his mother, the only way, he said, he could finance his tattoos "on a teacher's salary".

His appearance, he argued, was a good lesson for his pupils in accepting and respecting others.

"Children who see me learn tolerance of others. When they are adults they may be less likely to be racist or homophobic, and they will not look at disabled people as if they were something from a circus."

And his pupils seem to agree.

"You should not judge him because of his appearance," said nine-year-old Gayane.

"It is just his eyes which are scary, but he is very nice."

Loic, one of his former pupils, said it was "worrying that people get stuck on physical appearance. It is mostly the parents who react because today young people are more educated about respecting all appearances."

Teaches tolerance

Helaine said the only problem he has encountered was with "parents of children who were not in my class".

Some sent a letter to the authorities with pictures of him they found on the internet, and he was "sidelined" for seven weeks before being given the green light to go back to his class.

"I have nothing against tattoos but I think a teacher should be neutral when everyone is talking about what girls are wearing," said one father, Farid, 45, referring to the controversy in French school about some girls being sent home for wearing "inappropriate" dress.

"What he does in his private life is none of our business," insisted Lydie Songo, the mother of another child.

"My children call him 'Mr Snake', but I am going to talk to them about that. They have to accept him as he is.

"Still it must be annoying for him to have all this attention."
