Delicate and detailed, the tiny floral tattoos of Toronto-based artist Lindsay Asselstine are whimsical works of art. Asselstine—who goes by Lindsay April on social media—is known for her simple, sketch-like style and nature-inspired pieces, ranging from miniature portraits of pets and animals to dainty depictions of flowers and foliage. As an artist at Toronto’s Golden Iron Tattoo Studio, April is often commissioned for her expertly executed flora-and-fauna creations.
Bad Engagement Photos is a single-topic blog that features hilariously awkward engagement photos. Couples tend to get really clever when announcing news of engagement, marriage, and pregnancy, though a few fall flat with their message and wind up being unintentionally funny. The ever-growing collection in the blog is a testament to people being so swept up in love with their soon-to-be life partner that they disregard their better judgement in how to visually share their engagement with friends and family.
Overall, they may have romantic intentions behind their photo shoots, but they ultimately share an unmistakable element of humor that winds up matching and, at times, overpowering their wonderful news. They’re the ones with awkward hand gestures, photos of couples eating corn dogs together for no apparent reason, and quirky characters inadvertently mooning the camera and stealing the attention in the background.
