tattoos! i love ‘em and have 17 of them. so i thought i’d do a quick series on them since each has a unique story. . this is a super close up of my first tattoo: the tramp stamp. it’s my last name (hagio) in japanese (my dad’s side of the family is japanese). my history with tattoos goes back to childhood. my cousin kitty got our last name on her shin with a rising sun from the japanese flag behind it. i LOVED it. it was the most amazing thing i’d ever seen. i immediately wanted one. but i was probably around 10 years old. my mom made a deal with me: no tattoos until after i graduated from college and she’d help me pay. i figured since a tattoo would last forever, i could wait until i was 21 to get one. if i still wanted it when i was 21 then it was probably something i’d want forever. so graduation was rapidly approaching. i was a little over a week away when my dad passed away. i could write a whole novel about the going ons about that weekend but the tattoo related piece came on the sunday of his service thingy. immediately after the service the cousins all did some tequila shots. and determined it was tattoo time. my uncle (my dad’s best friend and brother, also an artist) said he’d draw the tattoo for me. a couple of my cousins already had the tattoo so they got a different rendition. and me and my cousins all headed to tatu tattoo in chicago for our tattoos- some of us for our first. one of my cousin’s funded my tattoo (which was awesome since i was a broke college kid) and i decided a tramp stamp was the way to go. while that was regrettable (kind of) i fell completely in love with everything about getting tattoos and the bond i had with my family. i think at this point there are 12 of us that have the same tattoo. kind of awesome. and while i was waiting to get the tattoo i was having a pity party for myself- i had to go back to school the next day and (a) take a final and (b) face all my peers that were going to feel SO uncomfortable around me. awkward. and one of my cousins goes “you’re a hagio. you can do this”. and that has stuck with me ever since. whenever i feel like i can’t do something i think about who i am and how i was raised. and 99% of the time i can say “i’m a hagio. i can do this” and i believe it. and that’s the story of my first tattoo!

alienscumbag asked:

Takemiya Keiko, Yamagishi Ryouko, Ooshima Yumiko, and Ooya Chiki, I would say :-)

Depois do sol e das estrelas,
Depois do mar e todo azul.
Existirá um paraíso depois de tudo que aqui passar.
O que os olhos nunca viram,
corações nunca sentiram
É o que Deus tem preparado
para nós.
Ele é a vida, Ele é a verdade,
Ele é o caminho, e em Teus braços
Quero andar.
Ah, Jesus Cristo vai voltar.
—  Hagios

A,A’, a small and flawless jewel of science fiction by Moto Hagio…Because of A,A’, I discovered that this art form could do more than I’d imagined—not just tell ambitious stories…but tell them with passion, in lines drawn from nerve endings, using every weapon in the artist’s arsenal to not just dazzle the mind, but stab straight to the heart… A, A’ is really about identity in all its forms: sexual identity, gender identity, cloning, lost memories, blocked emotions….

From the studio that brought you The Rookie and Remember The Titans comes the movie everybody loves – Miracle. Filled with exhilarating nonstop hockey action and heart-racing suspense, it’s the inspiring true story behind one of the greatest moments in sports history; the 1980 United States ice hockey team’s triumphant Olympic victory against the Soviet Union. Kurt Russell gives a brilliant performance as the dynamic and determined coach Herb Brooks, who had an impossible dream – beat the seemingly unbeatable Soviets at their own game. Starting with a handpicked group of 26 undisciplined kids, Brooks coached them to play like they never played before, and turned 20 of them into a team that believed they could achieve the unachievable – and in the process, united a nation with a new feeling of hope.

1 Pdro 1:16  porque escrito está: Sed santos, porque yo soy santo.

Gozo y Paz en el Señor herman@s. Wuau este versículo podría bien ser un versículo para debatir a lo largo de horas entre católicos y cristianos (seguidores de Cristo), porque unos hacen a sus santos de escayola, madera , piedra y otros elementos negando así lo que Dios dejo escrito mediante el Espíritu de que no se hará ni imagen ni semejanza de nada………. Lo conocemos todos como sigue aquellos que son cristianos, bueno e imagino que como se diría los que cortan el bacalao en la iglesia católica, pero o no se enseña o se desvirtúa, pero ya digo sería un largo debate.
Ja venga algo de técnica hoy jajajaja  La palabra santo proviene de la palabra griega “hagios” que tiene por significado consagrado a Dios, sagrado, es decir el sentido de santo sería un grupo de gente apartada para el Señor y su Reino.
Y ahora vayamos a la esencia del mensaje, una vez tenemos claro el significado de la palabra santo y su conjunto, herman@ssssssssssss cuanto nos han querido enmascarar el mensaje, confundirlo, maquillarlo, si bien cierto es que uno de nuestros propósitos es ser cada día mas como el Señor, porque nos llamamos cristianos, ¿pero para que necesitaríamos del Alfarero? ¿Para que necesitaríamos de la guía del Espíritu si fuésemos perfectos?, fijaros que el Señor nos llama a ser santos, porque El es santo, por tanto, aquello que marca a un santo no es la perfección, porque dice la Palabra que iremos siendo perfeccionados hasta el fin, no mis amad@s nooooo, sino la consagración. Si leísteis bien la consagración, porque un hombre, una mujer no es una persona sin faltas, sino aquel que se ha dado, que se ha entregado, humillado, arrepentido sin reservas a Dios. Gloria al Padre, gracias Dios , porque el decidir la libertad, la luz a las tinieblas, podemos entregarnos sin reservas al Señor, para que en este complicado caminar vayamos alcanzando la santidad.
No es una enfrenta fácil, sino todo lo contrario y lo sabemos, no hablamos hoy de ello, aunque sabemos lo doloroso que es caminar con el Señor, sino no deseas ser participe del mundo, pero herman@s, el que ha optado por ser santo, se goza también en ese camino, en las buenas y en las malas.
Hay unas palabras de Spurgeon que me han hecho meditar mucho y dice así: que el sermón principal de tu vida lo predique tu conducta. Y tú me preguntaras ¿Qué tiene que ver eso con que seamos santos? Mucho mi herman@, porque a lo largo de nuestra vida al lado del Señor escucharemos muchos sermones, algunos que nos tocaran, otros que harán que nos quebrantemos una vez mas, otros donde sabremos distinguir que no provienen de Dios, pero aquello que hacemos, de la forma que actuamos, como siempre decimos del testimonio de nuestras vidas, ese será el sermón que los demás oirán y verán, sean o no creyentes, cuando salimos, porque si hacemos de nuestra vida un camino santo, tomamos ese llamado a ser santos por parte del Señor, de la misma forma que el es Santo, otros verán la luz de la Salvación que es Cristo, y dime pues ¿Qué mejor sermón que ese?
Amad@s acabo ya, sed santos, porque yo soy Santo, dejemos que el Alfarero, afile, pula nuestro ser, nuestro carácter, que nos golpee, porque todo ello ira que se desprenda poco a poco de nosotros las imperfecciones y podamos ser cada día un poquito mas santos, porque así nos lo pide nuestro Rey y Redentor…

Vuestra hermana en Cristo Maika.
