Today I was punched in the face by a man who got out of his car and yelled, “Trump 2016!” in Los Angeles, just days after I returned home from London and just down the road from my house. Though I encourage passion, opinion and emotion, especially though art, I think violence is disgusting.

To live in a place where Facebook has given my address to an anonymous third party makes me feel like I am homeless again. This type of violence makes creatives feel like we live in a world where our individual creative input isn’t safe.

I am sad that this is the state of our America right now. I am sad that Trump, and many of his supporters, don’t find words enough to express their opinions – they need walls, waterboarding and punches. @realdonaldtrump,Please stop glamorizing and perpetuating violence. Make America Decent Again! ‪#‎makeamericadecentagain‬

No, they have not been caught, and the men drove off laughing. A detailed police report has been filed.

The story of my 18 inkings – and why I’m now getting rid of most of them

Tass Cambitzi has been tattooed 18 times, but is now undergoing painful laser removal.

She has struggled to find value and self-worth all her life, but believes this will be easier without tattoos.

“I want to start again,” she says. “I want nothingness.”
