12 Watercolor Tattoos You'll Want To Get For Summer

When J.Lo was asked to give her thoughts on her ex Ben Affleck’s vibrant phoenix back tattoo — besides leading with "Awful!" — she gave a piece of advice: “His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn't be so colorful. You know what I mean? They should be cooler."Many people agree that body ink looks best when limited to a simple palette of black, gray, and other neutrals. However, there's one tattoo trend that might just change that misconception. Hugely popular in Japan and South Kor...

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,I did a year of college before leaving on my mission. Towards the end of that school year, I started spending more time with this girl. Our first "date" started out as a study session, but I brought her flowers (because I was into her) and then later that day we made dinner and watched a movie. This was the day before Valentine's Day. We hung out the next day too, when she told me "I'm so glad we're dating." I didn't know how to respond to that (I was happy to hear it...

Comment on chocolate caramel tart by Shelley Souza

I selected a chocolate caramel tart from the NY Times’ chocolate recipes for Valentine’s but review comments have shaken my faith in its ability to deliver. So I was looking around for a substitute and came across yours, which I will be interested to try. However, my real reason for this premature comment (since I haven’t made your recipe yet) is Rolos. I am going to guess you ate the American version because they were purchased at a “gas” station. I agree–in America, this is an awful chocolate...

Comment on plush coconut cake by Olga

I’ve made this twice now, including on St. Valentine’s Day (with a variation your ‘bodega-style egg and cheese sandwich’ for Valentine’s Day dinner), and just wanted to say thank you. It’s so easy and so delicious, and the perfect way to impress my vegan NYC hipster classmates without trying. I added in some shredded coconut to the base and icing, and it couldn’t have turned out more perfect.
