Low Lai Chow Contributor

It must be said that we are always finding new ways of amusing ourselves. The latest thing to have taken the Internet by storm, apparently, is that of drawing exaggerated brows on one’s baby and uploading pictures of their usually expressive new mugs to Instagram.

In this revealing photo series, people reveal their hidden tattoos

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Wednesday 21 May 2014

I don’t have a tattoo. I probably never will. It’s too much commitment, too forever, but more importantly it’s a huge statement to make and I don’t have the guts. Having a tattoo in the first place says a lot about somebody, and you can glean so much from a person depending on what their tattoo is.

Modestly dressed female superheroes

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Tuesday 20 May 2014

All right, 27-year-old artist Michael Lee Lunsford initiated a ‘fully-clothed’ makeover on female superheroes sometime last year. While it’s not supposed to make a statement about the clothes (or the lack thereof) of usually scantily-clad female superheroes, we must say it takes a bit getting used to seeing them all covered up. They don’t look […]
