Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.
I have made so many vests over the years so here are some examples of my favorite ones. The one with the woven heart is my own and now it’s tattered and dirty making even more beautiful. The black leather vest is one I wish I would have kept for myself but I decided it would make someone else just as happy. It’s probably my favorite I’ve ever made and I have plans to make myself a similar one once I find that perfect black leather vest! All patches made by myself for Poison Apple Printshop.
