I’m working on i say ‘working on’ but i’ve written barely over 2,000 words this Rufus-centric FFVII fic that is all about Rufus trying to overthrow his father, and revenge and betrayal and love and friendship, but at it’s core it’s really basically just How Rufus Shinra Learned Not To Be An Asshole.
The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
Sak Yant or Yantra Tattooing are believed to give the wearer magic powers associated with healing, luck, strength, and protection against evil.
You can get these here in thailand by a monk, they look beautiful but I’d never recommend it. Essentially, you’re making a pact with a spirit to protect you in exchange for sacrificing an activity or habit you may have previously enjoyed (the monk decides what this is, not you). These tattoos are contracts. Breaking your side of the bargain may encourage the spirit to ‘punish’ you, and these contracts are not easily voided.
Reblogging for the informative caption. A lot of young people want things like this to be cool hipster fucks and they entirely disrespect the meaning behind these ceremonies
even though i personally dont believe in spirits or that stuff, i still believe that you shouldnt appropriate something this serious and important from their culture just to look “cool”

this is why most people’s cell phones only last around two years, which is also the length of most cell company’s contracts. coincidence? i think not.
