Here are some links to great bodyart sites:
BME - the Body Modification E-Zine
Body Circle Jewelry

This is my first tattoo after the original sitting with Steve at Reigning Color
Tattoos in Normal, IL - do NOT go there - they are awful. They never
asked me for ID, and their sterilization was non-obvious. Not to mention
their rendering left something to be desired
This is the tattoo after the first sitting with Misha at Body Basics in
Chicago. I am INFINITELY happier. Since then, Misha has moved. If you
want ink, you can find her here:
This is the final tattoo....LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
My second piece: A Celtic knotworked Ankh
(yes I know I am mixing cultural symbols, but it means something, so shut
up :) on my lower spine, just above the pantline. It is about 8 inches
tall when I stand, and closer to a foot when I bend over. The artwork was

send you to her everytime.
These are some pics of my piercings.. ( all these are now removed :( )
