24. Mid-Day SkinD Jabber

I'm leaving in a few days to head of to Montana for Skindependence. I finally have everything in order, and even all of my corset work designed and ready to go. I'm doing 12 (possibly 14) corsets this year, along with a couple play projects, large gauge work, anchor projects, and a lot more. I'm so excited to be a part of this event for a second year in a row!! I will wow everyone with my fancy lacing ideas and piercing projects for sure, and hope to come home with an award or two.

Aside from my working at the event, I may be getting a few modifications myself. It's been a long while since I've been pierced (by someone who isn't me), and even longer since I've had a scarification. Definitely, I'm getting two dermal anchors on my lower back and a matching tattoo with a lovely lady friend from Scotland. It's just a little butterfly with a coffee cup, but it will mean a lot to me.:) I have also been contemplating a little spiral scar on my leg. I don't exactly have many places I would want another scarification, but I'm due for more work. I already have a half-leg piece of a sunflower, and a butterfly flesh-peel on my arm. We will see. :)

23. Plugs!

I ordered me some fancy new plugs from Body Art Forms. I love blue, and have never owned a blue pair before. If you didn't know, my ears are 46mm, which is just slightly larger than 1 3/4". I've lately been contemplating stretching again. I will go to 48mm if I do. I haven't stretched my ears in almost three years.

22.Thigh Tattoo

I thought I would show off what has been going on with my thigh. We started this about three or four months ago and it's coming along nicely. So far I've racked up about 10 hours of work on it. Here is another sneak peak!

Next we will do another rose and the sword (probably this week too!). I'm hoping I can sit through all of that since I can seem to only go for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours at a time. It is a lot more painful than what I had expected it to be, but I love how it's turning out!

21. SkinD 2010

I've been slacking on posting here.... so here's an update!

Looks like July is coming up again! This means it's time to travel to Skindependence and pierce! I have some of the most incredible projects going on...I can't wait to show everyone what is planned for corset work. :D It will BLOW YOUR MINDS! So keep checking back for updates. I hope to win some awards. :D

To learn more about Skindependence and how to go, visit If you show up without a ticket/membership from the site, you will not be able to get in. You can always contact me if you have any questions as well.

Aside from my slacking, I've been working a ton! I ordered all of this colorful titanium jewelry and have been using it! I love industrials with some color especially. It's so much more fun than the standard. :D I've been trying to push the titanium so people can see there is more out there than just standard silver jewelry for initial piercing.

I will post again soon. I have some cool projects coming up to show everyone!

20. Back from Boston!

This last two weeks has been crazy! I have finally returned from Massachusetts. :) The guest spot at Zaza Ink in Worcester was amazing and I met some really great people. They'd even like me to return for two weeks in September or October, so be prepared for more piercing madness! Here's a picture of me and some friends from the shop. Miss Irene, Steve, me, and Joe.

It was truly a fun time. I ate tons of delicious food, drank tasty beers, and hung out with awesome people! I even met friends from a couple websites I'm on, BME and BodyMod. It's always cool to meet people I've talked to on the internet for months to years. :D

I was also tattooed! Here's a portrait of my kitty, Kakarot! It was done by the shop owner of Zaza Ink, Joe Peterson. I love it!

Downtown Boston.... I love this city. <3

We only spent half a day in Revere Beach, but it was still a lot of fun. The beach wasn't very busy and I was able to collect some cool shells. :D
