my body is my canvas

By Six-Out

my body is my canvas

my body is my canvas
I choose to mark myself with ink
not blades.

if I ever lose who I am
I'll always have who I was
in the form of needle.pointed.remembrance
and nostalgia waits in the mirror.

it's not an addiction.
unless you call monet an addict too.

I'm making myself. art

so, smaller than what I was going to get. but I liked the turn out.
no one can take me from me now. :)

  • A former member wrote: That looks very classy, the pattern is like a presentation of whirlwind deliverance, fateful.. as though you were meant for and belong to this time and entity of all you are. It's beautifully self-defining, I like it.
