shoot with the simple canon a540
Not what I was expecting, Great capture!
thats a neat shot.
but i always wonder when I see people with those gauges if they think about that their ears are going to look like once they dont wear em anymore...
thats my ear :|
Whats it matter? If you care about that, then I would conjecture you wouldn't do it in the first place.
Awesome shot! Also not what I was suspecting, but none the less very cool.
notice that you didn't get an answer.
belive me im not 10-15 years old kid , and i know how and what i wanna be and look like .
body modification is my way of life , and it will always be .
But I doubt that you will always feel the same way about the mods you have done.
Are you a psychologist?
Part of maturing is eventually learning that how one feels at one particular point in time is not necessarily how one will feel later.
I've lived long enough to meet lots of people who are pretty unhappy with life choices they make early on.
That's why tatooing your spouse's name on your chest is a bad decision.
Check back with me in 30 years and let me know how you feel.
Just because one was unhappy with choices made early on, does not mean that everyone who makes these choices are. You are basically implying that people who partake in body modification are not mature, and that is a very ignorant view (if indeed that is what you ment).
I hardly see how tattooing a spouses name on yourself has any relevance to stretching of ears or other types of body modification. The latter is similar to practices of tribal nations, and, in my opinion, by judging those that do similar things we are being ethnocentric.
I agree that living a longer life you have seen things that I may have not, but that does not mean that you are necessarily correct in your assumptions either. Your sample of people are personal ones, and you can not generalize data from such a sample.
Sorry... it's one of my pet peves when people assume and use personal and vicarious experience to make broad sweeping psychological generalizations. It makes my field look bad.
I had my ears at 1/2 inch, they closed up quickly and without a problem.
Tattoo's? There's an open debate on them, but as far as gauging your ears, they'll close up.
I understand that people are gonna assume things about people, but the truth is, I may not be the most "normal" looking kid, but guess what? I don't drink, I don't do drugs, the bible? yeah, it's my survival manual. I openly acknowledge that people are gonna assume stuff about me, and frankly that's fine with me. But what others choose to do, to their bodies, or whatever else, is up to them.
Separate names with a comma.
