The last thread about tattoos is dead so I'm making a new one

>Do you like tattoos? Do you have any? If you don't but want to get one, what are you going to get?

>If you have tattoos, do you regret any?

>Do you think tattoos make people look "cheap" or impulsive, especially if the person has too many?

Almost like it's a crude drawing trying to convey placement and not artistic accuracy.

Anonymous 4946

I think something like a sleeve or big piece can look nice, but when they're small and scattered they end up looking cheap.

I love the artistry of tattoos. I follow a lot of tattooists on ig. But when I see a person with tattoos, I almost always think they would look better without them. Especially in artistic photos and such. It takes away from their natural beauty. I've thought about getting a tattoo since high school, but this is one of the main reasons I have never gotten one.

I got a stick n poke recently and love it and it makes me want more, more legit, tattoos. I have ideas of what I want next I'm just not 100% ready to commit. I like smaller thinner tattoos too

Anonymous 6589

>Do you like tattoos? Do you have any?
No and never really had any desire to have one.
>Do you think tattoos make people look "cheap" or impulsive, especially if the person has too many?
Yes, but only if that person be it male or female isn't fit. If you just get a tatoo and look like a slob/unhealthy skinny then it looks very trashy to me.
If a person is fit and has good looking body i look at tatoos like minor enhancements to overall image, even if a person has plenty of meme tribal tatoos but still has good looking fit body

Is the body positive movement coming to an end? More and more people seem to be changing their mind again about sexiness of certain types of bodies


"Nothing has changed in how most people feel about themselves; instead, it’s simply become very gauche to articulate any of those negative feelings"

I agree with this. I personally don't value beauty and it's surprising how much other people do.

Anonymous 6549

I get what you're saying and agree but
>tfw weirdo who actually finds a lot of atypical features aesthetically pleasing like squishy bellies and acne
Not that I talk to people enough to compliment them anyway lel. Would it just be best to avoid it if given the chance? What do if I get an s/o with some unconventional traits?

Morbidly obese models wearing too much makeup are out. The new "woke" movement is trannies, who all have perfect, surgically enhanced, bodies.

Nothing. This is like having a seduction style of genuinely caring about someone's life, wanting them to improve and be happy. It's called being a respecting and caring person. Have pride anon.

Why is 14/10 IF recommended for women? Anonymous 6528[Reply]

Instead of 16/8?

Anonymous 6529

I think it's cuz reproductive health or whatever. There's fears of IF, or "skipping meals" in general, fucking with your periods, since most research on diet stuff is done on men unless explicitly stated.
I think this is bullshit unless you're losing weight for vanity reasons only. If you're significantly overweight to start with, there's no way that just restricting your food intact to 8 hours a day will do anything to your cycle.
Personally, I did what was essentially a 16/8 IF along with cycling to lose weight and go from medically classed as obese to the larger end of normal.

Anonymous 6531

Just from my own experience, I didn't purposely do if (busy work schedule plus low carb) and it seriously fucked up my hormones. I lost NY period and ut took at least a year plus to get it back.

Cycling what?

Does anyone know any good toning exercises or sports for stomach, butts and thighs? I'm trying to avoid things like running or squats because it fucks with my knees but i don't know what other options are worth trying

I've never been to a doctor about it but they just randomly ache sometimes so I don't want to make them any worse

Spin classes! Or biking in general. It's low impact and well really help you lose weight all over as well as tone your entire lower body. I lost 30 pounds within 4 months with them before I got too poor for 2 day a week pay-per-class deal.
For abs, I've heard pilates is good for building a strong core, but I've never tried it. I do planks after I run, but I don't do much ab stuff because I'm afraid of bulking up in that area.

Anonymous 6467

What makes you so afraid of bulking up your abs?

Anonymous 6468

Unironically squats are your best option. You just need to do them right. When you are at it, look down your feet and check your knees don't go over the tip of your feet.

Anonymous 6537

I have issues with my knees too. I like to bike, but I couldn't overdo it or my knees would start hurting again. Swimming is the best cardio for crummy joints. You get a great workout and you can become pretty toned if you train enough.

You would think this would make it worse but it actually works. I did weight training, so I had to wrap my knees at first, but once I built enough muscle it really helped my pain a lot. After about 6 months I didn't need the wraps anymore either.

It's not the app that should stir controversy but how people can't live without make up.

I wonder who could have bumped this cancerous thread???

MakeApp shows me what I've always known: make up is a political thing.
Women who wear makeup hate the app because it makes them look ever so slightly worse than they look without makeup, but still like themselves. This is upsetting to them because it gives them spots and wrinkles they know they don't have but will make them think "oh my god, maybe I do look like that!" anyway.
Men take this app and the backlash as evidence that women who wear makeup are vapid and deceitful. Even other women who don't wear makeup, or are """red pilled""" on makeup, have this same vitriol towards the women who do use it liberally.
Honestly the women are even worse than men. Men mostly just view make from a childish "not fair" sort of lens. The women view themselves as superior since they're "natural beauties" instead of these "lying roastie whores" with purple lipstick who society celebrates.
I support this image heavily. It's ok to be ugly. Once woman stop equating beauty and worth like how men do for women, we can finally live in harmony.

Anonymous 6523


I agree with most of your comment but I want to point out that it really doesn't show women looking "like themselves". It's really such a weird approximation that it falls more into the uncanny valley with the grey skintone and misshapen eyes to overcompensate for liner and mascara. The OP gif isn't even flattering before the app and washed out the entire picture too. The app has been given wayyy more credibility than it deserves, it's not accurate.

A much better example is pic related, a collection of porn actresses before/after makeup. They're way more accurate because it's a real before/after and not AI clumsily approximating parts of a face.

Anonymous 6527

Looks fake lmao. There's no way she looks like that without makeup. Maybe in 20 years tho.


Healthy comfort foods Anonymous 1920[Reply]

I like to make oven-baked barbecue chicken

Buy some boneless skinless chicken breasts, some extra virgin olive oil, and some BBQ rub from the spice aisle (same barbecue flavor with much less (sometimes zero) added sugar).

Preheat oven to 400 F, lightly coat chicken with oil, then with the bbq rub (it might take a few times to get a feel for how much bbq rub is enough), bake in a shallow pan for about 25 minutes or until internal meat temp is 165 F. Maybe turn them over halfway through if you're worried about them sticking to the pan.

Then just grab some steamed veggies and refrigerate/freeze the rest for later.

I replaced my old staple breakfast bread with whole grain bread that has red berries in it, and now I stuff it full of veggies instead of expensive cheese slices. Both tastes better and makes me more full than the old rye/flour/sugar bread I used to eat. I also replaced my oats based cereal with regular cornflakes and toppled them with various fruits or berries.

Not sure if it can be considered a "healthy" breakfast, but it has less sugar and a whole lot more vitamins in it, but the main plus side is that it motivates me to wake up in the morning and it feels more like a rewarding snack than a "meal for sustenance" like breakfast used to be for me. Highly recommended with veggie sandwishes though.

Bread with red berries topped with vegetables sounds heavenly!!

Anonymous 6501

dip them in mustard or use malt vinegar. ketchup has a stupid amount of sugar in it.

Anonymous 6514

Cook up oatmeal (the stovetop kind) throw it into a bowl, then mash a banana into it while it's still warm & throw some fruit on top, or honey or agave. I add peanut butter & vanilla protein powder on days I need a post-workout snack.

On a similar note, but on the savory side: cauliflower rice (or whatever rice you have) mashed up with avocado + an over-easy egg on top + spices. I add veggies depending on how hungry I am, usually I throw in some sauteed kale.

Step 1: go outside.

Anonymous 6440

Former overeater here, you need to find ways to distract yourself so you’re not constantly thinking about food. Pick up a hobby that requires you work with your hands for hours at a time, for instance. Hand-sewing quilts and making chainmail has really helped me.

Only keeping food that requires effort to prepare instead of things that are easily snackable in your kitchen also helps.

And get out of the house. Being anywhere but home is preventing you from opening the fridge.

Fasting is shit, don’t do that. Just take steps to force yourself back in the habit of eating a normal amount of food. You can do it, just like it.

Anonymous 6441

>eat 500-800 calories a day
>still manage to be skinnyfat because I'm completely sedentary
And don't say I'm miscounting. My dinner last night was two beets. Literally just two fucking beets. And eating like that isn't unusual for me. Half the time I only eat once a day. Anymore if I eat "normal" portions like I used to eat I'll spontaneously throw up.
But at the end of the day at least I'm not actually fat. Eating less in the first place is far easier than trying to exercise. Fuck cardio, it makes me want to die.
>Discipline is a muscle.
Who needs discipline if you have intense self-hatred to propel you forwards?
Fasting is what killed my appetite in the first place. Now I'm barely ever hungry. If I could be pissed to work out it would have been perfect. It does work.

Anonymous 6444

I don't think dieting is a good idea, if you're so "skinnyfat". Might be wise to take up bodybuilding.

Hey guys. I want some fashion tips for tall women.
I'm not that mature so I'm not really into elegant clothes but more on the normie cute ones. I'm seriously insecure about my clothes so I've never been paying that much attention to what I wear. I'm not really that fat I'm 1.76 and 65 kilos. Also, I have cankles and I want to wear jeans but everything is too short so it makes them seem bad.
I want to finally feel comfortable with my appearance

Anonymous 6393

>1.76 and 65 kilos
>converts to freedom units
>5'9 143lbs
Without seeing your measurements, that's like the perfect size. I'm jealous
>tfw I'll never be a tall qt who could gain or lose 10lbs without immediately looking fat/flat
Depending on weather where you are, you could try light wash boyfriend jeans with a lot of rips. They seem pretty fashionable still, and they will 1) hide canklage and 2) not look terrible if they're too short on you.

Anonymous 6396

Wow we're the same height and weight, that's weird. I just find long versions of jeans if I want that, but I've been digging the ankle trend recently.

Long high waisted skirts are the bomb during the spring/summer too
