Just a really really quick update - IM NOT BACK YET, GUYS. IN SEPTEMBER.
That's how bored I am at the funny farm.
Bored enough to randomly take a boxcutter and cigarette Ash and tattoo My Chemical Romance lyrics on my right calf.
All I did was cut the words into the skin [Although I think I fucked up and cut too deep in some parts, no clue] then smoke a cigarette, wallowing in the adrenaline of it all and then created a mixture of sugar, iodine and ash. [And I will keep rubbing that onto there until it's all healed up]
Old school, yo.
The cutting itself didn't hurt at all, to be honest. Even though I didn't use any sort of stimulant beforehand, like painkillers or simple icecubes like I did the last few times.
What burned like a fucking bitch was the iodine-sugar-ash mixture. That felt like my entire fucking leg was on fire. No kidding.
The idea behind using iodine, ash and sugar is simple. Iodine and sugar irritate the wound so the scar will be bigger/ differently colored. The ash is used instead of ink.
[All tatts I did up to now were done with ink and looked sort of ugly, so I'm hoping the ash will look a little different.]
But it turned out really pretty, I think. Better than my 'Fine by Five' one, anyway.
And, as it says in the deviation: Don't attempt this unless you don't give a fuck about your body or something.
[I did this cause I'm creepily fascinated by how the manipulated healing of a wound creates different scars everytime. Seriously, it's creepy. But I ain't in the nuthouse for nothin', yo. So if you're not that fucked in the head - don't do this.
