👊🏿👊🏾👊🏽MELANIN (its structural formula).👊🏿👊🏾👊🏽 The Walgreens cashier (a black woman) asked what my tattoo was. I smiled and told her. She then gave me a $5 discount and then said, “happy Juneteenth - we gotta celebrate somehow!”. Later, the white man cashier at Trader Joe’s asked me the same question - he went quiet and didn’t find it too funny, but sis at the next register overheard and winked at me.
Shoutout to my new regular tattoo artist @ruiz_tattoo in Stockton for being so kind, attentive and professional - I’ll be back for the next one in a couple weeks! Not to mention their *very* reasonable prices. Go to Richard and his colleagues at @thepiratesloungetattooparlor! #melanin #tattoo #newchapter
