self indulgent post another

The South is honeysuckle sweet and copperheads. It’s Spanish moss dripping with red bugs (or chiggers), sunburnt skin spotted with mom’s nail polish and calamine lotion.  It’s unrelenting heat, air too thick to breathe, and yes those tiny little vampires and cicada screams, and pine pollen covering everything in noxious yellow green. The South is poverty and trash burning and now we have coyotes. It’s varmint and vermin and both the lonesome wandering of a dirt road and the not quite comical fear of banjos. There are no-seeums and fire ants but there are fireflies too, winking bright on an evening, and crickets chirping and the low groan of wide gators sliding into still, black water. There’s kudzu and wisteria. So many pretty parasites. It’s the best and the worst of all its people set out on the front porch in a swing with a beer, tongues tart with lemonade and sweet tea, good ol’ southern charm and obscenities. It’s a rich fusion of cultures, some shared and too many stolen.

You can’t love the South without hating it too.

Port Mafia Tattoo Shop AU

Another self indulgent AU hc post nobody asked for. This is a weird mix of a high school AU too because everyone is 18 except for Kouyou (20), Hirotsu (40), Gin & Higuchi (16).~

[Chuuya]
- Tattoo Artist { specializes in watercolor and surrealism but can bang out a new school tattoo and make it look like a sticker. }

• Started working at the shop when he was fifteen. It was across the street from a bar he did dishes at in high school and he’d always doodle outside during his smoke breaks. One day one of the artists and partial owners walked by and offered to teach him under the table after school.

• The biggest tattoo on his body is a phoenix that starts in the center of his chest and spreads down his left shoulder to the middle of his arm. It was Kouyou’s birthday present to him on his 18th birthday—she took a few of his drawings and melded it with her own.

[Akutagawa]
 - Piercing Specialist { known for corset piercings and intricate non-permanent piercings for photo shoots and cons }

• Gin dragged him into the shop because she wanted her belly button pierced for her 16th birthday and Chuuya recognized Akutagawa from school. Weirdly enough Akutagawa had a fascination with piercings, and once he watched his sister get one he kept inching towards the piercing gun. Kouyou mention in passing they were looking to hire a trainee. He of course didn’t accept until both Gin and Chuuya pushed him towards the front desk to fill out paper work.

• Under Chuuya’s watch Akutagawa started sketching more after becoming the official shop’s piercer—but his true talent lies in the intricate piercings used in photoshoots or for conventions. He’s the only man in Yokohama that can give people corset piercings without tearing or destroying the skin. As for tattooing he’s on the fence about it and doesn’t have a solid grip on his artistic style yet.

[Gin]
-Receptionist 

 • Work part-time as the shop’s receptionist and helps clean the tools with another girl from her school, Higuchi. Gin’s nervous about getting a tattoo but she loves watching Hirotsu’s new apprentice Michizou practice his new school style on clients.

• Has no interest in working as a tattoo artists or piercer as a profession but she loves the atmosphere of the shop and looks up to Kouyou as a woman in power. A lot of her love and sex advice happens at the shop when she’s helping Kouyou clean her area and tools.

[Higuchi]
-Receptionist,/Akutagawa’s assistant

 • Aspires to be Akutagawa’s apprentice but he refuses to teach until she’s eighteen (even though Kouyou offered to pay under the table like she did with Chuuya). She dotes on him, cleans his equipment, and runs his social media accounts (without being asked) and helps with daily things around the shop like filing, appointments, and cleaning.

• She’s offered to let Akutagawa practice new piercings on her when they come into fashion, but the only one he’s been willing to do on her were surface piercings solely to see how long they stayed in. The experiment is still going and Higuchi is rigorous about cleaning the tiny gem pierced into her hip bone.

[Kouyou]
 -Owner/ Tattoo Artist { specializes in realism, water color, neo traditional }

• Started the shop with start-up money from a silent partner when she was twenty and continues to run it with Hirotsu. Kouyou was originally from Tokyo but was tired of getting bounced around in the system, so when she was fourteen she ran off and started working in a restaurant where down the street from the shop. When she was fifteen she lied about her age and started apprenticing, but she was so talented Hirtosu pretended he didn’t know her real age.

• Kouyou’s art has been featured in multiple tattoo magazines, and she’s actively speaking out on sexist trolls on social media in the tattoo world who try and put her down. She expects the best out of her employees and doesn’t take shit, even if Chuuya’s had a shitty day and a hangover that could kill Satan she expects his ass to do his best work or nothing at all. Has an entire cherry blossom tree up her spine with petals spreading over her shoulders down to her forearms—Hirtosu started the tradition of gifting tattoos to underage apprentices—that was her gift when she turned 18.

[Hirotsu]
 - Owner/Tattoo Artist { specializes in traditional, realism, and tribal }

• ‘Grandpa’ of the shop tbh, and he’s always bugging his artists (especially Akutagawa) to eat and take care of their hands. He’ll point out if someone’s not hydrating enough after a long stretch of tattooing and he hates using the computers to look for references. He’d rather freehand and he’s damn good at it—it’s what he’s known for. His original and intricate designs that just come out with zero effort.

• Keeps in touch with a young kid named Dazai who taught himself how to tattoo at home out of boredom. He worked at the shop for a little but kept getting annoyed with the rules and standards so he set off to start his own one-man traveling tattoo shop. Sometime he stops by to show Hirotsu his work when Chuuya isn’t there. Hirotsu learned how to use Instagram just to keep up with Dazai’s work secretly.

[Tachihara]
 - Tattoo Apprentice { learning everything, prefers new school }

• Learns from Chuuya sometimes because Chuuya is better at new school, but he’s really Hirotsu’s apprentice. Has a hard time not getting snappy when Hirotsu makes him practice traditional, but he knows he should have a well-rounded education over specializing from the beginning. He followed Chuuya’s Instagram a few months back and tracked down the shop. Instead of asking for an interview he shoved his artwork in Chuuya’s face and stuttered about wanting to learn from him.

• He has a crush on the receptionist and likes when she watches him draw, but he’s too nervous to ask her out because her brother has threatened to kill him with a piercing gun, twice. Sometimes he sneaks little drawings in notes and slides them to her when Akutagawa is in the back doing something or he bribes Higuchi to distract him so he can talk to Gin on his break.

[Mori]
- Owner/Business Partner

• He met Kouyou as a teenager and ate at the restaurant a lot between college classes. When he mysteriously came into a large amount of money he offered to help Hirotsu buy the property out rather than lease the shop and gave Kouyou a percentage to buy her way in. He knows enough about the tactical ways of business and tattooing, and often bugs Hirotsu to convince Dazai to come back to the shop.

• Too nervous to get any actual tattoos, but he once let Elise draw a picture and Kouyou used semi-permanent ink to draw it on his arm—while muttering under her breath what a pussy he was.

Am I going to do another self indulgent Patron Minette Les Amis brotp post? Yes, yes I am.

  • Babet and Enjolras get along surprisingly well, both of them spend most of their time trying to get everyone back on task. There is this look the two of them share when either Montparnasse or Grantaire interrupt productivity, that is the extent of their friendship but it still amounts to them considering each other close friends.
  • When Combeferre first starts living on his own with Enjolras living with Grantaire he doesn’t really know what to do, he is so used to taking care of other people he gets so bored. Of course Gueulemer notices and brings him the most pathetic kitten on the planet, it requires a strict medication regiment and Combeferre falls in love with the tiny fluffy thing and spends all of his time taking care of it.
  • Feuilly and Montparnasse became good friends in a foster homes and at the time Montparnasse was much smaller and less adept at taking care of themselves and Feuilly would have their back, and now Montparnasse pays this back tenfold. They often take his bosses aside to… discuss being more gentle with him.
  • Grantaire and Claquesous get along so well and it makes Enjolras so nervous because both of them are scheming something constantly Enjolras is certain of it. The only thing is that the two of them are just talking about the work behind the masks Claquesous makes. After a long time of discussing Grantaire eventually helps paint a mask for Claquesous. It is gorgeous.
  • Out of all of the Les Amis Montparnasse tries to recruit they go hardest after Joly, as he has all the strengths the Patron Minette is lacking, the medical knowledge the cute dinosaur bandaids and he makes incredible chicken noodle soup.
