And now I use my minimal tech skills to bombard this tattoo studio with emails citing the words of my two-spirited ancestors, sections of US and Canadian laws and a lot of harsh words
Lena likes playing in the dirt with human bones. It makes perfect sense that this globe trotting archeologist fell in love with the Kalinga tribe of northern Luzon in the Philippines.
This is my minimal interpretation, inspired by their beautiful tattoo designs.

WHAT. THE. FLYING. FUCK.?!?
What the hell is this crap?!? YOU HAVE NO FUCKIN RIGHT TO HAVE THIS ON YOUR ARMS.
No no no no no no. White girl you have no right wearing those tattoo motifs. Do you even know what they mean? DO YOU? No you don’t. Why the hell do you have the infufu-ufug motif on your fuckin arms?? Unless you have Filipin@ ancestors, YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO HAVE THIS TATTOO MOTIF ON YOUR ARMS WHEN THIS MOTIF MEANS THE EYES OF THE ANCESTORS.
I swear what the fuck am I looking at. And this isn’t the only one to.
What the hell, after finding that post on a white girl wearing a traditional Ifugao headdress and boar tusk necklace with the caption “tribal warrior”, I thought I wasn’t going to find anymore but I was wrong, I have found this shit and others.
Globe trotting archaeologist my fuckin ass.
And if you click through to the studio 2spirit…
I just fucking can’t.
None of the tattooists at this studio claim any Indigenous american heritage/affiliation. None.
This studio seems dedicated to appropriative tattoos.
Fuck all these people and their fucking shit.
This is exactly why I get so mad about tattooing.
I approve of this action.
Because, if you click through and look at all the tattoos this studio is doing…
They are seriously an appropriation factory.
spiritualz tattooz for all teh cool SF hipsters and/or hippies.
racist. ass. appropriation. bullshit.
also I don’t know any archaeologist/anthropologist worth their salt who would ever EVEN CONSIDER DOING THIS.
Madam, if you really are an archaeologist, you are disgracing the profession.Source: roxxtwospirit.com
