    This is a series of cross-stitch style tattoos inked by Turkish tattoo artist Eva Krbdk. I'd get one, but I'm afraid of commitment so I just hot-superglued (a method I developed myself) one of my grandma's existing cross-stitches to my arm. In hindsight I probably should have... / Continue →

    These are the 98 different raw foods that Dutch artists Lernert and Saunder cut into perfect 2.5cm cubes for a food-themed newspaper photoshoot. There's something really visually appetizing about the shot. Can you name all the foods? I could only identify like five, but almo... / Continue →
