Every so often, punk fashion becomes incredibly "cool" again — which can be sort of annoying for those of us who never thought it was uncool. Most recently, punk vets are pissed off about Kim Kardashian wearing a punk jacket with a couple of patches supporting bands that the general punk public are

Oh Bey
If there was an award for fearless female that continues to push the hair envelope, it would go to Beyonce. As if we needed further proof, Beyonce's Lemonade featured many hairstyles that completely celebrated all types of afro-textured 'dos — something not frequently seen in mainstream

Ryan of Precision Body Arts Gives Us the Real Deal on How Long it Takes for a Piercing to Close
If you’ve wondered how long it really takes for a piercing to close, you are not alone. I’ve had my nose pierced for over 15 years, but in every instance I’ve lost my hoop or stud in my sleep, I’ve woken up with my nose piercing seemingly closed. In those moments, I dramatically feel like my nose

Stay Hydrated, am I right? 
One of my nerdier qualities is being allergic to everything, but there is nothing like a hot cloth seeped in herbs to release the sinuses pressure beautiful weather brings to me. This, of course, got me thinking about how I can kill two birds with one stone: a homemade facial steam that benefits my

In an act totally out of character, I recently asked 15 women to share the stories behind their tattoos. Having over a dozen visible tattoos myself, one would think I was begging for people to ask me what each tattoo means to me. TBH, it's one of the more annoying questions I'm asked, falling

This is my new everything for cystic acne
If you’ve never endured the painful horror of a rash, I envy you. I have suffered through many rashes, but I'm fortunate to live in a time and place where oils from around the world seem to be at my disposal. The benefits of tamanu oil have made this exotic oil one of my most trusted

Don't be ignorant in the chair! 
At this point, I'd like to think I have enough tattoos that I never have any questions when I’m in the chair. However, I can remember getting tatted without knowing everything you should know before you get a tattoo. For instance, it wasn’t until my fourth tat that I actually bled during a session.

"Your lips would make a lollipop too happy" Morris Day in Purple Rain
Even though the movie Purple Rain came out only a year after my birth, it was one of my favorites growing up. Fortunately, my father was also obsessed with the movie so my young age didn't make miss out on the amazing outfits that rules the screen. The death of Prince on Thursday marks a sad day in

Channeling the goth teen in all of us
There is a legitimate reason why I've been wearing black lipstick every day for the past month, only taking off days where I worked from my bed in sloth with takeout food. I desperately needed to find out which of the many black lipsticks available are the best. Not long before my experiment first

Whose the prettiest lil DIY Scientist in the world?
