I recently had a friend ask me to refer her to a Northwest coast artist who could help her with a tattoo - and I know she was totally asking out of respect. And that inspired me to make a flow-cart/quiz to share about how the intention behind a tattoo makes a HUGE difference as to whether or not your tattoo idea makes you awesome - or an asshole..
It also gave me a chance to share a little bit about how I would love to see more white people participating in native cultures instead of being made to feel like outsiders. I think a lot of healing can happen when people share cultural traditions. Come over to my house and I'll share my mom's bannock with you ... it's a delicious bread that my friends from elementary school still ask about.
