It’s been a while since I’ve come across random action sports posts on my Facebook feed, but these are two interesting stories that make up for the huge break I took since my last Facebook Findings post. The first comes from my tattooed burlesque dancer friend Honey Hula-la. She linked an article about a DIY tattoo parlor in Colorado run by skater Jesse Brocado called No Class. I’m not going to share the VICE article because I have issues with that magazine and their bigotry. Instead I’ll link to Peter Garritano’s photos of No Class tattoos and skaters. I don’t approve of what No Class does mainly because they admit to not sterilizing and the drunkenness plus lack of experience can do a lot of damage. However, in today’s world of consumerism, we could use some hardcore DIY.
My friend Canon recently promoted the second finding, a video fro the project “Through the Surface”. Created by Clinton Edward and Clifford Kapono, the project mixes surfing, science, and saving the ocean. They’ve submitted it on National Geographic’s Expedition Granted competition. I’m passionate about conservation and science education (and of course, action sports) so you can bet that they’ve got my vote. Click here to vote. You can do so everyday until September 29.
