Treble Clef Tattoo
Today I did my first official tattoo on my boyfriend! One small step toward kicking off my career as a tattoo artist. I have a handful of other people set up to practice on in the summer as well. I'm really excited about how much support I'm getting throughout my journey as an apprentice. Every step forward I take through my career is another step above everyone who has shit to say about how I'm choosing to live my life. Heart

Explicit Expectations
Mixed media on paper
24 x 18 inches

EXPLICIT EXPECTATIONS:

A Statement on the Way the Media Treats Women and Their Bodies.

“YOU’RE PRETTY… FOR A BIG GIRL.”

There are many levels to this particular clip alone that are worth discussing. It was taken from an issue of Cosmo Magazine featuring model Ashley Graham, a woman considered to be the first plus-sized model to make the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. It is noted that the model received a great amount of this sentiment for many years. There is irony in seeing a women’s magazine highlight such a topic, considering the media – including the magazine industry – has always been the force setting the standards for skinny being the embodiment of beauty and shaming women for not conforming. The fact that Graham’s featured article promoting “self love regardless of size” is surrounded by the typical Cosmo-esque “change your entire body” trash content is just icing on the shit cake. Women are endlessly being told to love ourselves while simultaneously being told to change everything. “Be you,” they say, as they condemn everything which makes us unique.


IMPLICIT SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES:

Gender Roles Hinder Our Potential

Ingrained within ourselves through social conditioning are roles inherited based on gender assigned at birth. These more subtle expectations are often overlooked despite their prominence, as they are so constant that we don’t recognize the actual effects taking place. How we should act, who we should be, the proper way to interact with men and exist in public spaces. Our bodies are a spectacle to be criticized, ridiculed, owned, and violated. We are to bloom only to be plucked and utilized as a vessel for pollination. We must be elegant, graceful, delicate, pure, refined, modest, and ultimately determined to achieve unrealistic ideals of unattainable and unnatural perfection.
