16-year-old escapes alleged abduction attempt near party store in Saline – WXYZ

SALINE, Mich. (WXYZ) The Saline Police Department is investigating an attempted abduction that happened Saturday morning.

According to police, the 16-year-old girl was riding her bike to work near the Village Party store around 5:45 a.m.

The teen saw a van parked in the party store parking lot, and a man standing outside the van yelled for the girl to come over to him. Police say the girl kept riding her bike and saw two other men get out of the van with dark clothes and face coverings.

The 16-year-old continued riding her bike and not long after originally seeing the men, the girl saw the van drive by her, according to police. The girl rode her bike back home safely.

Right now, police say the driver is a tall white man with black hair and thin build wearing blue jeans and a red shirt. He also has a tattoo under his right eye. The other two men have also been identified as white, but were wearing black clothes and face coverings.

The investigation is ongoing.

What the polls mean – The Ledger

The Ledger

Today, I got a tattoo. Its a little dolphin, cresting an invisible wave, moving forward. Why I decided to get one, after decades of turning my nose up at such things, would take more ink to explain than that which actually went into my arm, and would mean a ton less; suffice to say that a year ago, I would have placed the probability of my only slightly painful visit to Phil Snyders studio down at the Black Swan (as anything more than a spectator) at less than 5%. How things turn, right?

The possibility of infection from such a procedure is less than 10%, if you do as you are told somewhat more if you ignore safety caveats. Probabilities rule our lives we measure the likelihood of something happening against something not happening again and again during the election season.And, like running out and getting a tattoo, we often choose to read the tea leaves of polling in ways that suit our view of what the outcome should be, rather than accepting what the numbers tell us will (likely) be.

FiveThirtyEight, one of my favorite polling sites, has recently posted the odds of Donald Trump winning this presidential election at 12 in 100 (the chances of Joe Biden winning the race is 87 in 100). They arrive at these probabilities through the use of algorithmic models, employing data from a wide range of reliable polling figures, and add to the data every time a poll is posted. Without going into great detail about how these models work, they do seem to work pretty well.

This does not mean that Donald Trump will lose. It means that after running their models 40,000 times, the probability of a scenario playing out in which he would win is fairly tiny. Two things separate the polling results this year from results in the past: first, the models are more robust, careful and focus far more on scenarios of the Electoral College than in the past, and second probably far more importantly is that almost 30% of the people who are expected to vote in this election already HAVE voted.

Why does this matter to pollsters? Arent they trying to predict the eventual outcome which, as we well know from 2016, will not be known until (perhaps late) on election day? They are.But the by-word, since scientific polling began, is if the election were held today, this would be the probability of X." This meant that the ebb and flow of public opinion was simply a projection, week by week, of what people would probably do on election day itself. Thus, a candidate might be doing remarkably well in September, but fall off or even collapse in a heap before the first Tuesday in November.

Things are just different in 2020. Since early voting and mail-in voting have been taking place for weeks, the election is, in fact, being held today." Or yesterday. Or for some voters, has been over for weeks. Which means as we get progressively closer to the election, the probability that the probabilities expressed in the models and the polls they are based on become progressively more reliable.

Voting taking place during the week that the poll is conducted can be expected (with normal skew from who is voting and where) to be closer to the polling results. These votes cannot be called back. The certainty factor the probability (how certain are you) grows with each passing day in which votes are cast.

By the results so far, time for the Trump folks to catch up is simply running out.Biden appears to be winning. Which means that if you have not yet voted, whichever side of the presidential equation you are on, your vote is worth exponentially more with each passing day.

Models aside, the race is not yet over, but it's getting down to decision time.

Why the Rockets must bring back Gerald Green – Space City Scoop

Gerald Green #14 of the Houston Rockets (Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images)

Should the Rockets make another run at Dwight Howard? by Zachary Allen

After being traded away in a four-team deal earlier this year, Houston native Gerald Green finds himself a free-agent and eyes a return to the Houston Rockets. The Rockets took a step back in terms of 3-point shooting, as they finished 24th in 3-point percentage during the 2019-20 season.

Adding shooters typically carries a hefty price tag, which makes a Green reunion even more likely, as he was last signed on the veterans minimum. According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic(subscription required), Green has been training in his hometown of Houston, in hopes of reaching a deal with Rockets GM Rafael Stone.

Green was sent to the Denver Nuggets as part of the Robert Covington deal earlier this year and was later bought out, which allowed him to rehab a foot injury that costed him the entire 2019-20 NBA season. Based on Ikos latest reports, Green is ready to return to the court in Rockets red.

With a new coaching staff on the way and Stone at the helm of the front office, this may not be as easy without the familiarity of Mike DAntoni and Daryl Morey for Green. But perhaps James Harden and P.J. Tucker, both of whom are Greens formerteammates, could sway the new decision-makers to secure him a roster spot for next season.

Green has become somewhat of a hometown favorite for Houston Rockets fans, as they hated to see him go earlier this year. And if the I-45 tattoo does not display it enough, it is safe to say Green loves representing his hometown on the court.

Currently at 34-years-of-age, Green is most likely looking to ride off into the sunset in his hometown for a season or two. This would especially hold true if Austin Rivers departs from the franchise this offseason, as that would immensely boost the value of a journeyman sniper like Green.

A potential contract would not harm the teams salary cap and his veteran presence on the bench would especially be useful for the younger players in Houston, like Ben McLemore, Danuel House, and even Chris Clemons.

Not only does he provide a valuable veteran presence on the roster, but the last two seasons in which he played for the Rockets, Green contributed solid stats. In the 2017-18 season, Green averaged 12.1 points per game in the Rockets campaign to a Western Conference Finals Game 7.

The next year he provided 9.2 points per game, while proving yet again to be a reliable shooter, as he was the only player in the league to make at least 100 threes while playing less than 1000 minutes during the 2018-19 season.

This is easily Greens biggest draw, as he boasted a 3-point shooting percentage of 35.4 percent in his last playing season with Houston. Obviously coming off a year with no playing time while also coming back from injury is always difficult, so it shouldnt be expected of Green to come back and pick up exactly where he left off.

But with his insane athleticism and clear desire to come home, he may come back with something to prove. When factoring in Greens value as a veteran and his shot-making statistics, it makes putting him in a Rockets uniform again a no brainer.

Renegade Tattoo and Piercing Shop opens in New Concord – The Daily Jeffersonian

NEW CONCORD With more than 120 years of combined tattoo artist experience, Renegade Tattoo and Piercing Shop in New Concord is open and ready to serve clients.

Thats pretty good to be able to say that, said owner John Wayne, who also owns the Renegade Tattoo Studio in West Lafayette, about the total years of experience his staff of eight has in being tattoo artists.

He said clients come from all around to be tattooed by his staff. He said a third of their clients come from out of state with three flying in soon from California just to be tattooed by Wayne.

The shop, which is located at 24 E. Main St., New Concord, was formerly the original Earls Pizza Shop location many years ago. After buying the shop last year, Wayne invested more than $18,000 in renovations to the floor, walls, and ceilings.

(New Concord) has never had a tattoo shop with the college in town, Wayne said. I felt like the village had a good opportunity and it was a good option to open.

Wayne said what makes his operation so nice is the fact that everything is 100 percent disposable its all one time use and then it gets thrown away.

He said his tattoo artists focus on Neo-traditional, Blackwork traditional, and American traditional tattoos.

The shop also offers piercings. However, there are a few restrictions on what can be pierced due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Renegade Tattoo and Piercing Shop in New Concord is open from 2 to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, and is closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Walk-ins cannot be accepted right now due to COVID-19 restrictions so appointments are encouraged by calling 740-206-9021 or visit them on Facebook at Renegade New Concord.

Sioux City tattoo artist tries his hand at different kind of ‘flesh’ for unique Halloween art – Sioux City Journal

He will then turn them into humans, animals, space aliens, zombies, you name it.

According to tattoo artist-turned-pumpkin sculptor Luke Schroder, the best gourds are the ones that feel solid to touch. Schroder sells many of his creations. Others are used as auction items for nonprofit fundraisers.

Creating art out of edible objects is actually a sideline for Schroder, who is a fulltime tattoo artist at Addictive Tattoo.

So, he trades human flesh for pumpkin flesh all for the sake of art, right?

"In a way," Schroder said. "The difference is that tattoos are art you take to the grave. Pumpkins, on the other hand, are anything but permanent."

Still, they'll last a few weeks if you choose a good gourd.

"If you thump 'em and they sound solid, you got a good pumpkin," Schroder said.

Sioux Cityan Luke Schroder said horror movies and metal music has both his tattoo and his pumpkin art.

Your membership makes our reporting possible.

Indeed, Schroder became something of an expert when picking posable produce. He can make more than 50 3D pieces, in various shapes and sizes, every Autumn.

Many will go as auction items like during Camp High Hope's annual "Haunted Lodge" fundraiser, while others are sold to art lovers who can also appreciate a good ghoul.

Schroder certainly belongs in that category. A fan of the macabre since childhood, he began drawing in school and never stopped.

"I was a kid who loved movies like (John Carpenter's 1982 cult favorite) 'The Thing' and listening to heavy metal music like Metallica," he said. "Both movies and music have influenced my art."

Dragon girl who went blind after tattooing her eyeballs shares unseen pic before covering 98% of her body in – The Sun

A "DRAGON girl" who went blind after tattooing her eyeballs has revealed what she looked like before covering her body in ink.

Amber Luke, from Australia's New South Wales, has covered 98 per cent of her body in tattoos, and looked very different a few years ago.


The 25-year-old Instagram model has also had a boob job, bum lift, cheek and lip fillers, a split tongue and pointed implants placed in her ears.

Amber posted an unseen picture of her as a teen on Instagram a few days ago, captioned: No face tattoos just a dermal (fillers).

In the snap, the only hint at the woman Amber would become is a small cheek piercing and a quote tattoo on her collar bone.

Amber went onto 20,000 on her inks, which helped her gain 46,000 followers on Instagram.



Amber previously revealed how tattoos have helped her feel more comfortable in her own skin.

Sharing another throwback pic in June, Amber wrote: This was me at 18-years-old.

I was so catatonically depressed, suicidal and was a walking dead girl.

I was numb. I hated myself the majority of the time that hatred ran deep and tormented me.



She added: Now, Ive totally transformed myself into someone Im proud of being.

Im a strong woman who knows exactly what she wants and who she is.

Amber now plans to get her left arm completely blacked out with ink - as well as a second boob job.

10 Magic: The Gathering Tattoos That We Absolutely Adore | CBR – CBR – Comic Book Resources

Few fandoms of the last few decades are as passionate as the one that plays Magic: The Gathering, so of course it has inspired some awesome ink.

As far as card games go, Magic: the Gathering is one of the most popular and longest-running around. New packs are plentiful and there are always new additions that help keep the game fresh, never letting it become too stale. As such, there is a massive following for it, with fans loving the complexity and deep lore of the game and its universe.

RELATED: 10 Pro Tips For Magic The Gathering Arena You Need To Know

Some Magicfanseven enjoy it enough to get theirfavorite fandominked onto their skin. Some chose the symbols from either packs or cards, while others showed their adoration for certain characters. No matter the choice,some of them look amazing and these are but a sampling of all the greatMagictattoos out there.

Clean and crisp are two words that should come to mind when you look at this tattoo. The linework is top-notch, nothing straying out of place, looking just as it should from the game. The way the colors are splashed on like paint or water is exceptional, the effect being far from easy to pull off considering how precise you need to be. The darkness of the black really helps let the other shades explode off the canvas, further enhancing its appeal.

Lilliana is a human planeswalker from Dominaria who's had a role in much of Magic's mythos, having one of the longer and more in-depth backstoriesto boot. It's no wonder why someone would choose to get this exquisite tattoo of her visage on their skin. It has a level of detail in it that you often only see in more typical drawn art. Her hair seems to have single strands, and more than just that, the work on her markings is incredible, getting it as close to her in-game appearance as possible.

Few characters look as cool as Ashiok does, truly resembling something that you'd see in your nightmares. The way the top half of her head is only two horns is chilling, smoky shadows lingering near it, only furthering that feeling.

RELATED: Magic: The Gathering - The 5 Strongest Monsters Ever Created (& 5 Weakest)

The artist did a great job capturing that as she looks as unfeeling and detached as a being of her standing should. The ridges in the horns are nicely done, as is the erosion of her skin near that area.

Sleeves can be hit or miss, depending on how it's done. In some cases, there can be too much going on in them, making everything look like a jumbled mess and taking away from the art. This isn't one of those cases as the work here flows very well while being beyond eye-catching. The red and blue colors pop among the darker shades, drawing your eyes there first. The fact that it isn't loaded with characters and willingly has emptied colored space helps, letting things breathe.

Demons are always going to be a favorite when it comes to tattoos, and Magic is no exception. They are instantly recognizable and don't require nearly as much explanation to observers as some others on this list. The stoic nature of their face, as well as the pentagram etched onto their forehead, are fitting. The nicest touch may be the demonic writing on the tome gripped in their hand, giving it a level of authenticity. The way his pauldron curls into a horn is pretty cool looking, too.

A direct side by side with the card in question shows what nice work this tattoo of the Pithing Needle is. The entire card gives a Day of the Dead vibe to it, from the vibrant colors to the use of a skull.

RELATED: 10 Things We Wish We Knew Before Getting Into Magic the Gathering

The way the flower and hilt of the dagger blend together give the appearance of the skull wearing a hat. Etching on the blade is one of those little things that could have been ignored, but its addition adds to the authenticity of the tattoo.

When done right, colors can take a tattoo to another level. While there's nothing wrong with black and white, this piece wouldn't have had the same effect without the color. The purple with the shadings of black looks beautiful, showing how the plant could lure you in. Once it does, you end up like the skeleton beneath it, dead before you can react. It's understandable why Paulypiff90 likes doing these pieces because they do a great job on them, blending two pieces of art into one beautifully.

The background of this looks like something you'd see from either the Buddhist or Hindu religions. While that takes up the most space on the tattoo, it's far from the best part. No, that belongs to the island in the center. The level of detail on it is so good considering what a small space they had to work with. You can see the rocks, sand, and trees clearly, nothing looking that smudgy. Even the water manages to have ripples inside of it, something bigger pieces don't always excel in.

The freshness of this tattoo certainly helps with its appeal nothing looking faded yet, an issue with many mutli-colored tattoos. Pictured are the major guilds within the universe, each having a very striking symbol to call their own. While smaller, they are all detailed nicely, fitting perfectly within their emblems. What's nice is that none of them share the same color scheme, despite there being ten of them present. The way they are presented makes it seem like they are needed artifacts to release some great power.

She's a Praetor of the white faction and another creature that looks like it'd both be in your nightmares and the depths of hell. The way her muscles are visible is creepy, the entire body looking like it was torn apart and put back together apt considering her views on the world. The artist did a great job of really capturing that grotesque feeling her body has. The way her head is a giant blade feels reminiscent of Pyramid Head from the Silent Hill video game series, fitting considering he too is a creature of nightmares.

Does Ciara Still Have Her Future Tattoo? – Showbiz Cheat Sheet

Ciara and Future were one of musics hottest couples. He was Atlantas fastest-rising rapper and she was the Princess of Crunk&B. At one point, Ciara put her love on full display by getting a tattoo in honor of her Body Party collaborator. But as we now know, that didnt turn out too well. Now, were wondering: Does Ciara still have the tattoo?

She began dating the Mask Off rapper in 2013. After much tabloid speculation, Future confirmed their relationship that January, saying in an interview (via XXL): The chemistry is there. Its amazing. She makes me happy; I make her smile.

After the couple went public, their relationship moved quickly. Uproxx reported in April 2013 that Ciara and Future had even gotten couples tattoos on their ring fingers. Ciara received an N for Futures first name, Nayvadius, while he tattooed a C for her name.

By the end of the year, they were engaged and expecting a son, Future Zahir Wilburn, who was born in May 2014. However, there were still clear problems in their relationship. After rumors of Futures alleged infidelity emerged in August 2014, they officially ended their engagement that year.

They tried to work things out between them but it could not be saved, a source told E! News around the time of the split. Ciara could not get over what had happened. She is focusing on her baby and friends now. Her baby is the most important person in her life.

RELATED: The Heartbreaking Details Behind Future and Ciaras Breakup

After the breakup, multiple outlets reported that Ciara had started the tattoo removal process. She did not address the reports. However, TMZ pretty much confirmed them in December 2014 when it obtained and published a photo where her finger art looked more faint than usual.

Speaking to the outlet, a source said: Future isnt upset about it, and understands its part of moving on. The insider also noted that Future would be keeping the tattoo he got in honor of his ex, though its unclear if its still there now.

After splitting from Future, Ciara began dating NFL star Russell Wilson in 2015. They became engaged in March 2016 and married in a fairytale ceremony in England that July. Now, they share a beautiful blended family that includes two more children, daughter Sienna, 3, and son Win, 3 months.

RELATED: What is Ciara and Russell Wilsons Secret to a Happy Marriage?

Reflecting on the past few years of her life in a 2019 episode of Red Table Talk, Ciara admitted that she initially struggled as a single mom. But once she met Wilson, things started to come full circle.

I hadneverhad that feeling in my life, she shared. It was just, like, calm. We were connecting in every way. His conversation, it was just different. The way that he looked at life was different. Also, the energy with my son, it just felt right. And of course, the consistency. Hes consistent. That consistency is so crucial.

He was like this, open arms, she continued, stretching out her arms. And he was like, I got you. Just the detail. Whenever he would think about me, he would think about my son. And to love me is to love my son. We come together. Its dope. Its a different level of love.

All of Demi Lovato’s tattoos and their meanings – Page Six

Demi Lovato has been through a lot since starting her career at 7 years old.

The Disney star-turned-pop diva, 28, got her first tattoo when she was just 16, but had to hide it due to her squeaky-clean image.

Throughout the years, the Confident singer has become more outspoken about her struggles with mental health, substance abuse, her sexuality and more and added plenty of tattoos to remind her of whats really important in life and commemorate her ups and downs, including her recently ended engagement to Max Ehrich.

Below, see all of Lovatos many tattoos and learn more about their meanings.

Lovatos most recent tattoo is a large butterfly on her neck. Though she hasnt shared its meaning, the singer captioned an Instagram photo of the ink with telling words that appear to be lyrics from a forthcoming song: Dear little me, Im sorry that it took so long but baby your [sic] free.

Shortly after performing at the Grammys and singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl as part of her musical comeback, Demi revealed that she had a large back tattoo done of an angel being saved by the Holy Trinity.

I told [tattoo artist Alex Aureo] about my life and where I was at in that moment and we created a combination on images that best symbolized the spiritual awakening I was having, she wrote. Having a fallen angel being lifted by 3, pure, angelic doves (the Holy trinity) as her inner light is being guided by a higher consciousness, and the disintegration of her dark wings was representing the darkness I was shedding.

Celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo is responsible for Demis survivor neck tattoo, which she had done in December 2019 to remind herself of her resilience.

When her friend Tommy Trussell died after a struggle with substance abuse, Lovato as well as some of the models other close friends honored him with T tattoos.

Lovato called this tattoo on her engagement ring finger a forever reminder that shes first and foremost committed to herself.

This is for you Mimaw, Demi wrote of this forearm portrait of her grandmother shortly after she passed away in May 2019. You at 26 on my arm while Im 26, and forever. I love you more. Her go-to tattoo artist Dr. Woo is responsible for the ink, which the singer called the most meaningful in her collection.

To celebrate six months of sobriety after her overdose, Demi inked this flower on the inside of her pointer finger.

In 2018, shortly after she announced that she had relapsed with her song Sober, Demi had the word free inked on her right pinky. Several of her friends and team members got matching tattoos while on the Tell Me You Love Me tour with Lovato to show their support.

One of Demis boldest tattoos is this large lions head on the back of her hand, which artist Bang Bang inked in 2017. Its a nod to her Leo astrological sign as well as her song, Lionheart.

What started out as lyrics from the Bethany Dillon song Beautiful has turned into a large design on Lovatos ribs. She first inked just the words which she says are a tribute to her faith and Gods creation when she was just 16 years old. She later added the artwork around it in two stages, first adding a pair of feathers and then a dreamcatcher in 2016.

Demi said she decided to tattoo a smiley face on her finger in 2016 because lifes too short not to tattoo your pinky.

In 2015, Demi memorialized her dog Buddy, who was killed by coyotes in her backyard. She got the words Buddy was here in a font made to look like a childs handwriting on the inside of her foot. The singer also sold T-shirts with the design during the Future Now tour. In 2019, she updated the tattoo to include a portrait of the dog above the writing.

After a show in NYC in 2014, Demi stopped by Bang Bangs studio for a series of Roman numerals honoring the birthdates of her family members. VIII VIII MCMLXII represents August 8, 1962, for her mother Dianna De La Garza; II IV MCMLXXXVIII represents February 4, 1988, for sister Dallas Lovato; XII XXVIII MMI represents December 28, 2001, for half-sister Madison De La Garza; II XIV MCMLXIII represents February 14, 1963, for stepfather Eddie De La Garza; and finally, X XXIII MCMLX represents October 23, 1960, for biological father Patrick Lovato, who died in 2013.

In April 2015, Demi had a kiss print covered with a grayscale rose, sharing the new ink with the hashtag #kidsdontdodrugs and referencing how much she hated the lips. Lovato later added a second rose and more leaves to fill out the tattoo.

To commemorate a trip she took to Kenya for her 21st birthday, Lovato inked the outline of Africa on the inside of her arm.

After her biological father passed away, Demi memorialized him with Roman numerals representing his favorite number. My father and I didnt have the most ideal relationship, but at the end of the day hes still my dad and I grew up with him and he was a wonderful person, she told Good Morning America.

Ive dealt with mental illnesses but my father also dealt with mental illness and he wasnt able to function very well in society.

In addition to the tattoo, she also set up a scholarship fund in his name to help patients pay for mental illness treatment.

On the day she released her fourth album, Demi, Lovato inked the phrase I am a warrior on her back lyrics from the closing song. I have a song on my album called Warrior and its a very, very meaningful song to me, she told Jimmy Fallon.

Its really heavy, the lyrics, but its an inspirational song as well. Its a negative thing turned positive. Ive been through a lot and Im really really honest on this album. And this is a song that was really difficult for me to write, record, and now release. [The tattoo] was kind of like a tribute to releasing the album as well as overcoming some really, really difficult things in my life.

Though she had faith tattooed first in 2011, Demi later added 12 birds flying toward her wrist from her elbow to symbolize freedom. Though not a factor in the stars decision, the number is congruent with the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous; she said it was meant to be when she realized the connection. The same design later appeared on the cover of Demis book, Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year.

Lovato has these words tattooed across her two feet, yet another tribute to her faith.

Perhaps a divergence from her Disney Channel stardom, the pop star has this phrase inked on her middle finger.

Some time in 2011, the singer added this word on her finger.

The bold cross is intentionally placed on the outside of her right hand, so that its clearly visible whenever she holds a microphone.

Demis signature phrase is tattooed across her wrists as a reminder to avoid self-harm and addiction. She had the message inked in 2011, shortly after she entered rehab for the first time.

It was very symbolic for me to be able to cover [up my scars from cutting] and also replace it with something else thats permanent so that Ill never be able to forget the support that I had when I went in [to treatment], she said at the time.

Demi had this lip print tattoo done on a tour bus during Warped Tour by artist Ashley McMullen, and later publicly discussed how much she regretted it, even comparing it to a vagina. After hearing Lovatos comments, McMullen publicly shamed her for peeing all over the toilet seat, acting like a drunken mess and skipping out without paying for the ink.

This tattoo, like the lips on her arm, was apparently a spur-of-the moment decision for Lovato. It was also done in the same location on the back of a tour bus at Warped Tour the year before the infamous lips.
