TALKING ABOUT HER SISTER KHLOE’S TATTOOS, KIM KARDASHIAN ONCE SAID, “You don't put a bumper sticker on a Bentley.” If you haven't yet flung this magazine against the wall after reading the word Kardashian, thanks for bearing with me. There was a time when I felt similarly to Kim.

Editor's note: In the May 2013 feature on Kendall-Leigh Neuner of Pawn Stars, Neuner said a woman once shielded her child’s eyes from her tattoos. We received a slew of similar stories from readers. Here are just a few to remind you that you are not alone in tattoo discrimination.

The great thing about rum is its assertiveness and versatility as a beverage. Unlike vodka, the most utilitarian alcohol, you can taste rumalthough the sugarcane spirit also plays well with others. Have you ever heard someone say that they don't drink rum?

Star Wars
“What light through yonder flashing sensor breaks?” William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: Verily, a flew Hope by Ian Doescher is exactly what it sounds like: a New Hope in Elizabethan English, complete with a chorus that narrates action scenes in rhyme. The book is rich with twists on classic lines from both Star Wars and Shakespeare’s plays (and an errant “to boldly go where none hath gone”) and would not be complete without addressing the most divisive scene-who does Billy Shakes say shot first? “Tis a cop-out!” says Han. “And whether I shot first, I’ll ne’er confess!” -Caitlin Elgin

ELYSIUM
Director Neill Blomkamp (District 9) is back with this sci-fi/action flick set in the year 2154. Earth is an overpopulated shit hole occupied by the poor, and the wealthy live in a manmade space station called Elysium— a utopia where there’s even a cure for cancer. Many Earthlings desire to escape their crime-filled ruins, but one ordinary man, Max (Matt Damon), makes drastic alterations to himself in order to get to Elysium. His desperate and dangerous mission catches the attention of Elysium’s hard-ass Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster in villain mode), who will stop at nothing to prevent Max from succeeding. —Gil Macias

KICK-ASS 2
Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) is ready to open another can of whoop-ass! Since we last saw Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit Girl, their enormous popularity and media attention have inspired a whole new wave of ordinary people to turn into self-made, masked superheroes. These amateur heroes form a group called Justice Forever, led by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). This catches the eye of the vengeful Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who re-emerges as The Motherfucker and assembles his own league of evil villains to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his father. —G.M.

R.I.P.D.
Based on the Dark Horse comic book, this flick is like Men in Black with the undead instead of aliens. R.I.P.D. stands for Rest in Peace Department, an otherworldly law enforcement group that protects and serves the living from souls who refuse to cross over to the other side and face final judgment. Wisecracking veteran officer Roy Pulsifer (Jeff Bridges) is assigned to partner with Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds), a recently deceased detective chosen to be part of R.I.P.D. Together, they try to restore the cosmic balance when the dead attempt to take over the world of the living. —G.M.

NCAA FOOTBALL 14
A year after slipping in the BCS polls, EA Sports’ college football title is gunning to reclaim its reputation as a premier sports game. Its long bomb? The Infinity engine, introduced in last year’s Madden, that delivers a better variety of bone-crushing hits. College football is currently dominated by spread offenses, but options-heavy offenses benefit from a revamped system that highlights the defender you are supposed to key on pre-snap. An overhauled recruiting system gives you better odds of landing prospects, provided your squad is impressive enough to draw their attention. To round out the package, the popular Ultimate Team card collection mode (made famous by FIFA and Madden) comes to NCAA with more than 1,400 gridiron greats like Peyton Manning, Barry Sanders, and Herschel Walker wearing the jerseys of their alma mater.

Jerry Seinfeld has tried a few projects since Seinfeld but none has worked as well as his internet show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. As the title dictates, the venerable comedian picks up entertainers like Alec Baldwin and Colin Quinn in a car he thinks fits their personality—Ricky Gervais in a 1960s Austin Healey (loud and British), Larry David in a 1952 VW Bug (the picture of humility), and Michael Richards in a rustedout, duct-tapedtogether VW bus—to have coffee, lunch, and conversation.

RIDES OF THE YEAR
Check out our picks for the top gears of 2014.
[no value]
2014 SUBARU FORESTER
2014 SUBARU FORESTER The 2014 Forester is a glowing example of the new school blended with the old: a traditional piece as far as utility and allweather-ruggedness are concerned, with a touch of finesse applied to its artful and expansive interior. More than just added legroom and lowered seats that boost cargo space, the 2014 model boasts a totally re-hauled transmission to bump up its fuel economy to the next level. Overall, just like a good sting of ink, this year’s Forester will leave you feeling transformed, strong, and part of something most people just won't understand.
[no value]
2014 SCION TC
2014 SCION TC Tattoos tend to mark a significant date or time for their wearers, and this year, Scion is celebrating its glorious 10th anniversary. The brand has come a long way from its iconic boxy city rovers, and the new model allows the true form of this vehicle to rise to the occasion. The Scion brand is a young artist with serious chops, and the tC proves its mettle with modified transmission and drivetrain to boost performance, coupled with a slew of design features like lowered front and back bumpers, LED accents, and a brand-new LCD touch screen in the cockpit.
[no value]
2014 JEEP CHEROKEE
2014 JEEP CHEROKEE Talk about a symbol of strength: The 2014 Grand Cherokee can rock crawl the way most rides slide into third gear—truly a machine admired by off-roaders and commuters alike. The Jeep franchise has stepped it up this year with a model that delivers both strength and finesse. The Grand Cherokee is a muscle-bound custom piece featuring a five-mode air suspension, a store of all-wheel drive options, and a hilldescent-control feature that allows you to trudge up and down the crags with a little more swagger by alternating the brakes and throttle. Rock on!
[no value]
2014 DODGE DURANGO
2014 DODGE DURANGO American traditional—that’s Dodge in a supercharged nutshell. The 2014 Durango is muscular and comfortable. The V8 version of this beast of the back roads and byways can haul an unsurpassed 7,400 pounds while warming your fingers with a heated steering wheel. And that’s not all: The V6 model can haul a driver and six weary travelers up to 600 miles on a single tank of gas (not too shabby for a 2.5-ton machine capable of revving up 295 horsepower). What American traditional comes down to is this: a smooth interior and strong, bold outlines. —Nick Fierro

Buying a new ride is a lot like getting a new tattoo. In addition to the dedication and preparation for pain, there’s a mountain of research involved as you attempt to hunt down the best provider. Eventually you get paired up with someone who’s able to give you a work of art that serves a dual purpose: telling the world what you’re about while acting as a source of protection.

In preparation for Ink Master's third season, which begins airing on Spike TV this month, we asked the show’s contestants to complete a flash challenge of our own.

ROBERT MCCORMICK
In a very specific type of Road Trip Bingo along Eastern byways this June, it took a light blue, vintage Mustang, a Styx soundtrack, a beautiful tattooed driver, and an INKED logo to get lucky. It was the Bullrun-a Cannonball Run-like automotive rally from Montreal to New Orleansand the Mustang Girls drove for 10 days with the radio cranked and the INKED logo smacked on their quarter panels.

You probably know Joe Rogan from one or two of his many roles-host of Fear Factor, UFC commentator and martial artist, podcaster on The Joe Rogan Experience, actor, stand-up comedian-and his multifaceted nature may surprise you. To him, there is nothing unusual about his numerous occupations, but he knows that other people might not see it that way.

SID STANKOVITS
Fusing traditional American style with vibrant colors and composition, Stankovits puts the "art" in "tattoo artist."

After falling in love with hot rods and rockabilly culture, Sid Stankovits decided to become a tattoo artist. His bold, clean black lines and solid colors made him one of the masters of American traditional style. But traditional is a bit of a misnomer, as his color palette and placement seem almost Japanese.

“Baltimore is a really fun city, certainly not what I expected from watching The Wire," says J Ranno of Read Street Tattoo Parlour. Bound not by the plagues of poverty and violent crime but by bars, trendy restaurants, and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Read Street—housed in a historic building in the center of Mount Vernon—contributes to Charm City’s cultural atmosphere.

The shops where you’ve tattooed are also associated with the shows Miami Ink and NY Ink. How has that affected you as an artist? It’s just taken me down a whole different route. You really have to walk through a lot of things these days. You can't just tell [new clients] to come in, sit down, and shut up like we used to.
