    "There she blows!" cried the lookout, sighting the great white whale, Moby Dick. The classic book, Moby Dick, was written by New England author Herman Melville, published in 1851. In the novel, Captain Ahab, driven by revenge, sailed the seas to capture this great white whale who had bitten off his leg in a previous encounter. The crew of Captain Ahab's ship, the Pequod, included: Ishmael, the teller of the tale, which begins the line: "Call me Ishmael"-the name of Abraham's son who was sent away; Chief Mate Starbuck, a Quaker from Nantucket, for whom the Seattle-based coffee franchise took...

    A Florida man with extensive full-body tattoos who allegedly drugged, abducted and sexually battered a woman in a run-down camper earlier this year has been arrested, the local sheriff announced Thursday. Efthimios Michael Zachary Mikedis, also known as Zak, a 28-year-old from Ocklawaha, allegedly attacked the victim with an accomplice on Jan. 5. When the victim regained consciousness, Mikedis allegedly burned her hair with a cigarette and held a pair of scissors to her throat before beating her, dragging her to a waiting car and eventually letting her go at a Winn-Dixie parking lot.

  • ‘Missing the mark’: Ex-Warren staffers face outrage over campaign tattoos eerily similar to Holocaust concentration camp numbers

    Former staffers for Elizabeth Warren have been taken to the woodshed over tattoos meant to memorialize her ill-fated campaign – which just happen to closely resemble markings given to Holocaust concentration camp prisoners. Oops! Intending to commemorate the Democratic senator’s failed bid for the presidency, at least two former Warren staffers thought tattoos displaying the hex code for the campaign’s “Liberty Green” theme would be a clever tribute – until Twitter caught wind of it. In an avalanche of criticism, netizens wasted no time in pointing out the obvious – albeit accidental – reference to Nazi atrocities proudly displayed by...

    Tattoos are not new. What is new is their ubiquity and extent of body coverage. They meet the eye with livid starkness everywhere one looks, turning the atmosphere and the culture positively fluorescent. What was once a niche market has expanded exponentially. Practically everyone of a certain age group, say, late teens to early fifties, seems to flaunt these decorative glyphs and totems on every visible part of their bodies, including the head and face. (Actress Amanda Bynes and rapper Post Malone are recent celebrity examples.) And judging from my experience in the change room of the gym where I...

    Recently, European scientists bombarded tattooed corpses with X-rays from a particle accelerator. While it could have been a scene for an upcoming goth body horror movie, it was actually a study meant to benefit living humans with tattoos. This grisly experiment helped European nanoparticle researchers understand how tattoo ink travels in human bodies over time. In a study published in the journal Scientific Reports on Tuesday, a team of French and German researchers reports that nanoparticles found in some tattoo inks can migrate away from the skin — and accumulate in lymph nodes.

    Once dismissed as an “odd-looking little artifact,” the tool pushes back evidence for tattooing in the U.S. Southwest by a millennium. The tool ismade from a bundle of prickly pear cactus spines, their tips saturated with dark pigment, inserted into a handle carved from lemonade sumac and bound with yucca fiber. Some 2,000 years ago, a tattooist in what’s now southeast Utah used this tool to hand-poke a design into someone’s skin. After the point of one of the cactus spines broke off, the tool was likely tossed into a trash heap. It remained there for centuries, in a pile...

    **SNIP** She also shared the text conversation with the tutor who specifically advised her to add the character above the initial tattoo in order to make sense in Japanese, as characters are typically read top to bottom, right to left. But Grande included the new character below the original tattoo with a drawing of a heart, instead, which resulted in the ink making even less sense than the original. Neither of these configurations are coherent in Japanese, as BuzzFeed notes, so most people would likely read the phrase left to right as 七輪指♡, which roughly translates to “small charcoal grill...

    In celebration of her new hit single, "7 Rings," pop star Ariana Grande got a new tattoo on the palm of her hand, paying homage to the song and its music video. The star said she had the phrase "7 rings" tattooed in Kanji, a Japanese style of writing. But it actually spells "BBQ Grill," as some of Grande's Japanese fans quickly pointed out. The two characters separately mean seven (七) and ring (輪), but together "七輪" means Shichirin, the name for a small charcoal grill. Amazon offers several 七輪 for sale. The combined characters roughly translate to "7 wheels"...

    Over brunch in the spring of 2016, Jennifer Conti, MD, clinical assistant professor in obstetrics and gynecology at Stanford University, and Gillian Schivone, MD, an Ob/Gyn in the Midwest, began to talk about wanting to get tattoos. Even though they had been close friends since their fellowship days, and had spent hours talking about patients and their personal lives, this conversation felt different. “It was pretty spontaneous,” Schivone says. Conti, who is also cohost of the V Word Podcast adds, “neither of us had tattoos or had really even considered getting one, but on that morning it seemed right.” This...
  • Media Matters Hires Fake Fact-Checker Who Falsely Maligned a War Hero

    Remember last month when celebrities like actor Ron Perlman smeared as a Nazi a veteran of the Marine Corps and double amputee who now works for ICE as a computer forensics analyst? They misread his tattoo which is a symbol of his platoon. A New Yorker fact-checker spread the lie far and wide without checking with the veteran. Talia Lavin, the now-former fact checker for The New Yorker, was hired by the radical-left Media Matters to fact-check right-wing outlets. This comes within a month of her slandering the disabled veteran and ICE employee as a Nazi. She is now free...

    A Harvard-educated fact-checker for the New Yorker is being excoriated by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency for “baselessly slandering” a Marine veteran — by falsely accusing him of having a Nazi tattoo, according to reports. Officials with ICE are now demanding that the New Yorker and Talia Lavin apologize over her erroneous tweet about Justin Gaertner. In the gaffe, Lavin allegedly implied over the weekend that Gaertner, a combat-wounded veteran and ICE forensics analyst, had the Nazis’ Iron Cross inked on his elbow.But she deleted her post after “military veterans responded that the tattoo looked more like a Maltese...

    The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said she was "honored," joking, "This makes it significantly less awkward that I've had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years." Saturday Night Live castmember Pete Davidson on Friday posted a photo on Instagram indicating that he got a tattoo of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Accompanying the picture of the ink, Davidson said the "tattoo of [his] hero" was meant to be a Christmas gift for Clinton. "Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe," he added. The picture is the only photo on his verified Instagram...
