April 3rd, 2019

Continuing his exploration of spiritual and mythical characters from cultures across the world, Ravi Zupa has released the third print in his Tattoo series featuring Buraq from the Islamic tradition and a buddhist version of Mahakala. At the top, we see Mahakala—a fierce, chaotic form of Shiva (husband of Kali) who plays a significant role in Tibetan Buddhism.

While recreational marijuana has been legal in several states for a few years already, the traffic laws regarding the usage limit while driving are still somewhat blurry. The main problem is that it is still currently unknown what level of THC in the system significantly interferes with one’s ability to drive.
