I’m just gonna leave this here so I’ll remember what my body normally looks like when I’m feeling like a beached whale in a few months.
Something to think about: The Earth is 4.6 billion years old. Let’s scale that to 46 years. We have been here for 4 hours. Our industrial revolution began 1 minute ago. In that time, we have destroyed more than 50% of the world’s forests.
"What about when you get old?"
Tattooed Seniors answer the question.
So stoked to look like this when I’m older

via Millennium. He is self taught. Most of his works are based around the loose form of the human head and it’s metaphysical core. Ambiguous non specific portraits, walking a high wire perfectly balanced between states of calm and conflict, confidence and nervousness, hopes and fears, conscious and subconscious, male and female. They are innately, universally human.
There is a suggestion of the powerful and inescapable link between Whittaker and his art that both live through each other and that the paintings unmask and reveal a true identity. This identity is ambiguous, internal and ephemeral, our own warren to explore, but where some the tunnels remain blocked consciously or unconsciously. Through art these tunnels can be accessed.
I put as many on at once as possible
i love you.
