A Face of Charms: Pierced Woman in EdinburghApril 29, 2009, 10:25 AMface of charms, Guy Kawasaki, pierced woman in edinburgh
is piercing! The art of the dancing face.
I found this photograph of a pierced woman
at Holy Caw
, a blog of a fellow,
I can imagine the jingling every time she turns her face, but not what it must feel like to have a face of jewelry. Or what the silver feels like in the skin in very cold or hot weather. You'd have to love attention, because you'd be noticed wherever you went.
Something tender about this image, the self-mutilation that's body art and a fashion statement in its own way.
Cleaning the skin and the piercings must be a ritual in itself.
She has a beautiful smile.
A face of charms.
