5 Fandom Friday: Geeky Tattoos I Want

I love tattoos, and I'm blown away by the skill it takes to be a tattoo artist. The thing is, tattoos are, like, forever.

Everyday Cosplay: Slytherin

With my recent re-sorting into Slytherin, I decided that I needed to update the last Harry Potter-themed everyday cosplay I did a while back to reflect my proper house.
