/tətuː/ Tattoo

You’ve always wanted to get a tattoo but you’re too afraid of what your mum would say ? Just remember one thing : YOLO ! What’s the point of living if you can’t express yourself ? And what could be a better canvas than your own body for that ? So sorry Mummy, but just have a look at these rad tattoos and you’ll totes understand our devotion to this art.

2. The feather
You are a tough girl, we know that. But as every human being, you’re also delicate. Don’t be ashamed of it. No in fact, you should express it ! The feather is the perfect symbol for that.

3. The triangle
One of my faves. Firstly, because it’s a small symbol so it doesn’t cost a lot of money. And come on, we’re all povos. Then, it can mean so many different things : stability, trinity, it’s even the symbol of women… So get one but don’t tell anybody why. Stay mysterious. Obscure even. But please, pick  a good tattoo artist because it’s a complex drawing.

4. The “deep, deep” phrases or lyrics
Hipsters are tormented, we all know that. And sometimes our fav artist expresses  exactly what we are feeling (Hipsters connexion). So don’t go further, just pick one phrase you like. There is no copyright for tattoos.

5. The other geometric symbols
To finish, the perfect symbol of your complexity. These are awks and amazeballs at the same time. But guys, just make sure you’re not epileptic before getting this kind of tattoos.

So now, you don’t have any excuses. Go to “Sins of style” on Buitenkant Street and ask for the tattoo you’ve chosen. Trust me, you’ll be on fleek for schizzle !

/mæn bʌn/ Man bun

A man bun is a type of long hairstyle that involves the tying of one’s hair into a single bun to be placed upon the crown area of the head.

You can choose whether you want a full bun or a semi-bun – this is determined by the length of hair you use to knot the bun.

This trend started in 2013, but men have been using the bun hairstyle for centuries. This was common in the Roman Empire, but now the man bun is seen as a trend which was started by hipster. A common hipster look is the wearing of the man bun with a beard, but it’s associated with other urban tribes like heavy metal dudes and hippies. The man bun has become more and more popular and has even become a common sight in hipster-friendly cities like New York, London and Stockholm. Furthermore there’s an African community that use the man bun style (Rastafarians).

So, the man bun is a trend of real hipsters who want to differentiate themselves.

If you are a hipster, what are you waiting for?
