Well, the secrets out. I am a crazy quilting, embroidering, crafty girl who has mutilated her body in several ways.
The nose stud came first, when I was about 23. I also have eight holes in my ears - this is where the mutilation part comes in - most were done with a bottle of gimlet and a safety pin when I was a STUPID teen. Man, they hurt. Enough holes for you to wear all your new earrings at once SharonB!!
Then came the the pisces tattoo. Got that when I was 24. It's nice to see it actually, as I don't spend alot of time trying to look at my lower back, FYI, it is really hard trying to take a decent piccie of your own back.
The last tattoo is on my inner ankle. It is a celtic knot, with the birth signs of my kids around the outside, and Robs and mine in the middle. Both were designed by me.
I love body art and piercing, and it is only my 'not fit for public display' figure that keeps me from further embellishing myself. On a forum I visit a quilter had blanket stitch done on patches down her arm. You could take this one step further and put studs where beads would be. Come on ladies....live your art!!! haha
