This is from my final project for my Photo class. I asked participants to write something about themselves that contributed significantly to who they are as a person, but is something that someone may be surprised to hear just looking at them. I will be continuing this project indefinitely, so if you’d like to participate look out for open calls!
For some reason Tumblr won’t let us answer your question directly so we made this post instead.
With love and sincerity,
btw, if you haven’t seen the video of Matt and Karen performing the Doctor Who theme song, watch it here. If you haven’t read Matt and Jenna answering questions on Tumblr, read them here.
Bob, moonshine, and freckles. Our new friends at work. Guess who’s who ^.^

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?
The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.
