your tattoo is amazing. what's it from (or did you design it yourself)?
also, I want a septum piercing too, only because it's the only facial piercing I can easily hide. but I think it would suit me. I am excited to see pictures of yours.
aaaaand kudos on ending the relationship...
i can't afford to waste any more of my youth seeking the self gratifying and life delaying waste of time i call romance.
that's how I'm feeling right now.
I posted a while back with the idea, and mez read the post and then insisted I let her tattoo it on me. She drew it up for me.
the septum didn't hurt to pierce, but I'll be god damned this thing stings so bad if you bump it. YEOWCH.
seriously, it seems to do nothing but delay my ACTUAL life when I'm in a relationship. I can't afford to waste any more time, I'm getting OLD.
absolutely agreed on the relationship bit- my best friend is going through that right now, and i keep telling her that life is too short to spend with a jerk.
also, hell yeah septum. I have mine done too!
i hope your bff figures that shit out!
is it just pretty much inevitable that you get a sinus infection right afterward? only because it's the worst possible time and god hates us all?
i think so.
I didn't get a sinus infection, I had an allergy attack :( It was a lot less bad than I expected, heh. Just involved a lot of strategic grossness removal with q tips, it didn't get infected or anything.
SUPER SWEET SEPTUM CLUB!
yeah, extracting snot with qtips is like wiping your ass with one sheet of toilet paper.
SSSC OH SHIT
I went through soooo many q tips when I first got my septum done, no lie.
aw sweetie. Sorry to hear about the relationship. The tat is lovely. (what IS a septum? always wondered.)
this is the septum:
one of these days i'll show mine, i'm still trying to decide whether i like it or not.
If yr romantic interlude isn't helping you grow as a person then they're not the right one for you. I know it's hard to make that kinda decision, but yr totally worth it and you'll totally find someone who recognizes you for the shooting star that you are.
Shell-bras are superhot. When I've lost enough weight I wanna flounce around in them ALL the time. And I love how sexy her tentacles look! Mermaids aren't the only lovely ladies of the sea.
Is the healing process of the septum as painful as I imagine it is?
I'm proud of you. All my hugs.
I keep telling myself that- there's someone that will actually try to build me up instead of bring me down out there- somewhere. I just wish I knew how to tell the bad ones from the good ones. I definitely don't.
I like coconut bras :)
OMG the septum was the worst. stings. yeouch
i can't believe you got the moo piercing. it probably looks fine on you, though ;P how goes the tattoo pursuits?
you wouldn't believe the shee-it they have me doing at atelier. i started a cast drawing and as of now (15 hours in) i have the general shadow outlines and the lower lip preliminary tone block in. that's all.
try this. take a mid-level hardness pencil (hb, b, 2b) and shade randomly on general sketchbook paper. nothing major, like 3in x 3in. now, make sure the pencil is needle sharp and go back over the shaded area, making sure to make the tone 100% even and void of any white paper at all (via tiny, tiny marks and pointillism).
now imagine doing an 11x14 drawing from life like that. yarrrrrg.
i need professional opinions on whther or not the septum looks ok. i can't stand my face lately [something to do with having all blonde hair i think] so I can't take a picture.
so, like, just filling in? no going from dark to light, just a big ole layer of graphite?
OK- imagine drawing rebel flags and angels all day.
then imagine drilling them into someone's flesh. :D
i haven't actually poked anyone yet, i have a lot to learn still- but god damn i love it.
