is it controversial to mention smoking?I just this moment commented on a picture of two nude girls with legs wide apart smoking different pipes (big fancy paraphernalia type)
The exact phrasing was
"but glamorizing smoking in any way with young people was outlawed for advertisers years ago... maybe that's a good rule to follow even for personal hobbyist pictures too- whatever additives or fancy pipes, it's still a pretty unhealthy activity. the only significant cause of heart disease in women under 40 and implicated in many cancers. I have personal family experience of the results, which can be pretty horrible. looks so harmless and yet can be devastating to lives down the line"
I thought it was a straightforward comment about smoking. But I got an immediate reply
"that sort of comment well get you blocked" and being blocked.
It's as if some sensitive person feels you're not allowed to mention smoking as a dangerous activity that kills? someone really really sensitive about smoking? Is it acceptable

I do most of my research online for tutorials and references and stuff, and I've been wanting a place to collect them. So I thought: why not just make a journal entry that I can edit and update with references/tutorials as I come across them?
So here they are!

Seriously, the people who managed to get a set of those...the heavens were smiling upon you! I had no idea that my four horsemen drawings would be such a hit. I would literally be completely sold out of them within a few hours. They were a bestseller! Y'all are just too much
But geez I had such a fun time! Friday was super slow, but Saturday and Sunday were packed full of action. Did plenty of people watching...HOLY CRAP there were some amazing and really creative outfits there. And people were not afraid to get into character. I saw everything from steampunk Jack Skellington and Sally, Victorian Joker and Harley Quinn, steampunk Day of the Dead, and a guy walking on stilts while playing the bagpipe. Not to mention the countl
PE: Body Suspension and Temp PiercingThis article contains graphic images and content.PE: Body Suspension and Temp Piercing4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
For this weeks Project Educate, I endeavoured to find out more about Body Suspension and Temporary Piercing. Having done neither before, I turned to those on deviantART with the knowledge to teach me, and to teach you guys!
Nyx-Valentine has written an introductory piece on Body Modification and Suspension, and BeautyInFlesh has written some more explanatory paragraphs about Temporary Piercing.
Here in Body Art, we're an individual genre of Art. Why? Because our canvas is our own or someone else's body, it needs to be looked after and what we create has to be well thought through. Even if it's temporary, such as Make-Up, if you do not apply skin safe products the results can be disastrous. I hope that you'll take in what has been written below, and maybe learn something new about the sometimes extreme
