I mean if there were medieval kittens I wouldn’t complain… (But no really, this blog is the best.)

I got this with my friend Nathan who also got a LSP tattoo with a different quote. We wanted to get matching tattoos without them being identical so we picked quotes that both fit us accordingly.
I’m so happy with how it turned out so I had to share! although when this was taken it was fresh and a little bruised.
“I fall in love with human beings based on who they are,” she tells the magazine, “not based on what they do or what sex they are.”
DID SHAILENE JUST SAY WHAT WE ALL WANTED TO HEAR? SHE IS LIKE THE FIRST ACTRESS WHO SAYS IT LIKE THAT. SHE DIDNT SAY SHE WAS GAY BUT SHE IS JUST LIKE ALL OF US. WE ALWAYS WANTED PEOPLE TO SAY THAT WE FALL IN LOVE WITH PEOPLE AND NOT WITH A GENDER AND FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YOU GO SHAILENE WOODLEY.
Dipankara Buddha, c. 1600-1650
Gilt and enameled copper with semiprecious stones and pigments
32-1/2 in. (82.6 cm)
Dipankara, one of numerous Buddhas of the past, is said to have predicted the coming of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni. According to legend, a rich Brahmin named Sumati saw that Dipankara was about to walk into a puddle of water. In order to prevent him from soiling his feet, Sumati laid his long hair across the puddle; following this event, Dipankara prophesized Sumati’s rebirth as the future Buddha. Images of Dipankara in Nepal are worshipped as icons bestowing charity and protecting merchants. In this copper figure, Dipankara offers a gesture of charity (varamudra) with his left hand and a gesture of protection (abhayamudra) with his right. His richly decorated monk’s robe, crown and jewelry further illustrate Dipankara’s role as an icon of charity.
