Anonymous asked you:
i'm american, but my family has always held on to this one line of scottish blood that we have. we have tried and tried to find a tie to a certain clan, but the more we look, the more it seems our family were just wandering peasants way back then. my question is, is it ok to adopt a tartan? do clans still maintain some sort of associations that i could ask about membership?

I’m honestly not an expert when it comes to clans, tartans and the sort. I’m sure it would be ok to adopt a tartan or you could even have a bash at designing your own.

I know this may sound a bit weird, but I live near Glasgow and I'm currently looking to get some new ink. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations of any artists?! Cheers in advance!

I’m not sure I can help personally. I’m actually trying to find a decent place myself. So hopefully maybe some followers could help out :)

I have no idea what Troon is like sorry, it’s not far from where my family is from but that’s all I can really go on. Maybe some followers can give more insight. :)
