Here's a few photos from just a few hours after getting tattooed.

I sat for about 2 hours straight. We still have to add the green glow around her, but we're waiting until we decide what colors to use for the filler before we do that. I forgot how intense coloring in can be!

Hi, I've just had my eyebrow and madison pierced. I love the placement but my piercing place, which I've had positive experiences with before, pierced them with standard straight metal barbells. They also warned me that the madison will inevitably eventually reject. I've read you can get different, flexible jewellery that reduces the risk of rejection so:
  • Do you think I need new jewellery?
  • If so where can I get it from? (I'm in the UK.)
  • When should I change it?
  • Should I change it myself or ask my piercer?

Newbie. :] [Apr. 4th, 2009|04:59 pm]

[music |Barenaked Ladies: The Old Apartment]

I'm planning on getting a new tattoo over the summer for my father who passed away when I was 12. He was a writer, and so am I, which I didn't know until after he died, and my half sister sent me a shitload of his writing. Anyway, there was a poem in there that he wrote about me when I was born, and I wanted to get a stanza of it tattooed somewhere. It reads,

" 'And a little child shall lead them'
how we thank you, God above,
for sending us our little darling,
out of heaven, here to love"

The only problem is, I have no idea where to put it. I was thinking on the top of my foot, but I think it may be a little too long.

For reference, and so this isn't text only, these are the tattoos I have now, and where they are.Collapse )

Navel piercing [Apr. 4th, 2009|03:00 pm]
Human Canvas

I'm about five months pregnant and I'll be needing to take my navel barbell out soon. The doc said if I'm worried about it closing up I could string some fishing wire through it. Heh.

It sounds more like a psychological solution than a practical one.

What do you think?

Photo Project [Feb. 19th, 2009|11:40 pm]
Human Canvas

This may be a long shot, but I'm a photo student and my semester project is on body modification. I would like to photograph the processes and the end result. I am open to pretty much anything. The only thing is that it can be hard to find models. I've already posted ads through other mediums, but apparently not too many people are comfortable in front of the camera.

That being said, if anyone lives in Wisconsin and is interested in modeling for me please send me a message or comment. I live in Oshkosh, but will be willing to travel to some other areas. Please state your modifications and if you're 18+ let me know if you're willing to pose nude.

If you could pass this info onto your friends, that would be awesome.

Also, does anyone know of any photographers who have worked with this subject before? I'd like to check out what other people have been doing, so any names or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

New nostril piercing [Jan. 10th, 2009|10:55 pm]
Human Canvas

I got my first non-ear piercing two days ago. :)

Check it out.Collapse )

I do have a couple of questions that I wasn't able to find online anywhere, including these archives..

Does a nose screw bend clockwise or counter-clockwise for a right nostril?
Mine bends counter-clockwise [if you look at it with the stud facing you] so that is probably correct, but I just thought I'd poll those of you who'd know, just to be sure. Mine fits in there comfortably, but the bend points downward. Is this just because the swelling has gone down and it needs to be tightened and then turned up, or is this how it is supposed to sit in there?

What exactly is my piercer going to do to tighten it when I go in? Will he just bend it, or something more complicated?

How long did YOU wait to change your ring?
I haven't asked my piercer yet [I will when I see him in a couple days], and I'm sure he'll tell me to wait like 3-6 months or something, and I probably will, just to be sure it heals well with no infection. But I'm curious to hear how long you waited and what happened if you did it earlier. Most people I know changed theirs after 2-4 weeks with no problem, but I'm sure it hurt a lot more.

Just thought I'd ask my questions here because I have been completely unsuccessful in finding any real information on nose piercings online.. But I also generally suck with a search engine.
