OH MY GOD
A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.
NO FUCKING WAY.
YO HOLD ON.
IT GETS BETTER.
This mummy, found in the Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.
She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance.
…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.
And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?

Question for the ladies. I would like to know if I am weird in thinking this or not: a really athletic type girl, thin, maybe small chested takes a cute photograph of herself hanging out, lying around in a shirt and shorts and its cute and flattering and nice looking. I HATE that if A girl who has…
You absolutely wear that bikini if you want to. I agree with you in the whole lame perception thing, but if you and a skinny, flat-chested friend are wearing the exact same, well-fitting swimsuit in your respective sizes, and you get shit for showing too much skin and she doesn’t - that’s lawsuit time. Or at least punching time.
