This was my first tattoo, it was done by Freddy of Ink Shop. Zero is more to me than just a cool movie character, Zero is the nickname that one of my teachers gave me and I just thought it was really clever. When I started thinking about getting tattoos, Zero was always the idea that stuck with me. I’m really happy with the way that this came out and I’m stoked to see how the rest of my Nightmare Before Christmas piece turns out.
Here’s a fun series of infographics that break down the cost of being a superhero when these characters were first introduced and compares it to the expenses the characters’ current iterations would rack up today. The series was created last year for Mashable with artwork by Bob Al-Greene
In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.
