Pirate Woman
by Will Nunes

Y’know, painting the face to be scary in war is something that doesn’t get enough respect in the modern West. It’s an old tradition, and a common one. Doesn’t work well with an army of uniforms, but an army of uniforms is a recent invention; plenty of armies have had soldiers who decorated themselves scarily. The same is true of pirates.
What I’m saying is that this is neat, yo.

I believe, if you look hard, there are more wonders in this universe than you could ever have dreamt of.

Chubby Inuit mermaids with sleek seal tails

Sleek Japanese mermaids with orange and white koi bodies

Dark, scaly mermaids with enormous white eyes so that they can hunt at the bottom of the sea

Small mermaids with spiky, poisonous lionfish bodies

Mermaids that aren’t just skinny blonde pretty girls with fish tails
