Balnacra Arts by Vicky Stonebridge

tv rant. body as canvas?

they are stupid on tele. did anyone see this body shock “body as canvas” programme last night.
i think muddling up body modifying with these performance art mentalists was crude. they seemed fixated with the pain element. the point that its hypocritical to see mainstream mutilation such as plastic surgery, as okay, but body modifying as not , is a good one. But its not all about pain, thats another issue, Its about changing appearance & using the body as a canvas. We don’t got to the dentist cos we’re fixated with pain, but to get our teeth looked after. I’m working on my own tattoos at the moment, cos i can’t find or afford a decent tattoo artist, theyre crude & take forever, with artists ink & a sewing needle, but ultimately i have complete control over what they look like. i like the images, the ability to tolerate pain is irrelevant..

    Tattoes are the work of the Satan and all his wee impish devilry.

    That’s quite scary, but less scary than looking at the rest of his Salman-Rushdie-gone-gypsy face.
