Weekend, Interrupted

All I did this weekend was art homework. What a drag.

However, I did make some visually appealing pieces that I enjoy. This one is titled "Do you wanna see my tattoos?" Almost every tattoo that I get is for me, and for my pleasure. I get a little nervous showing anyone my work, mainly because everyone seems to assume that there has to be a "meaning" behind it. There is, for the most part, but that doesn't mean I want to explain it. Sometimes personal art can be very personal. So here they are. My tattoos.

What does it mean, though, to put personal art out for people to see? My body art is personal and, usually, it's completely covered. When it isn't though, I feel like I'm letting someone look at my private journal. Perhaps my body is a kind of blog... Something to think about I guess.

glad to hear that someone else feels the same way about their tattoos. i just got my first one this past january. and still only a hand full of people have actually seen it.

its funny the differences we make with public and private art...
