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.
Predebut, he helped a girl in a wheelchair when no-one was willing to. Tao assisted her all the way home, despite the fact her home was very far away.
When a total stranger asked for directions around Qingdao, Tao was willing to spend a whole day taking the person around his hometown. They even kept in touch even til now.
On his way home from school, Tao saw a granny without an umbrella, so he gave his own to her, and got drenched in the rain.
He comes from a very wealthy family, but he knows the value and importance of hard work. Tao saved up money to buy clothes for his grandmother, and lied about the price so that his granny wouldn’t feel like he’s spending too much money on her.
Tao’s friendship with Chen Chen. Who amongst us can truly admit that they will learn sign language for a friend? Tao did it. It is a friendship that blossomed before debut, and continued even to this day. Chen Chen even posted these words for Tao, 'Friends until death'
In 2012, he protected a pregnant lady against the hoards of people at the shopping mall when it got too crowded.
Even the small things, like helping the fans with their trolleys at the airport when they are struggling. Apologising to fans for waiting too long. Often after reaching fame, idols become more and more distant from their fans, but Tao always treated us as equals, like a good friend.
When he’s hurt, he’s more worried about the fans, reassuring them over and over again to not worry.
Writing his Instagram in Korean, Chinese and English for the fans. When there was the fanwars in the International Fandom, Tao wrote in English on the day to reassure the fans.
These are just a short list I’ve compiled for July 2014. I am sure there are many more things that I don’t know about. Tao has never talked about them, and nor does he need to. I want people to know about this boy’s wonderful, caring heart to all people. From pre-debut til now, he has never changed, as wonderful as always.
Zevran is my favorite Dragon Age character, hands down, no competition. As such, I was really sad to hear that he wasn’t going to be appearing in Inquisition.
So, as a tribute to Zevran, here’s a theoretical Inquisition-era design of him as leader of the Antivan Crows. Design isn’t exactly my specialty, but I had a lot of fun doing this.
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
Would it really shock anyone to know that Quentin Tarantino has a foot fetish
that boy you just called gay? well he is gay. he’s your boyfriend. both of you are gay. how do you keep forgetting this, jeffery
