foolish, fragile spine by SycamoreSea foolish, fragile spine by SycamoreSea
I’m wasted, losing time
I’m a foolish, fragile spine
I want all that is not mine
I want him but we’re not right

--Daughter, "Smother"

my angry changeling Finn from one of my nanowrimo novels, Changeling Tide, which was also vent work. Finn is unintentionally sort of an prequel antagonist of Summer. the back of her shirt is supposed to resemble brain coral but doesn't. I wish I had made the purple in her hair more visible. or been able to scan this or get a good photo or something because these colors are so dull but they aren't supposed to be. :/ I'm just too tired right now to mess with it more.

...butwow look at that skirt. that background needs more depth but that skirt. look at it. do it for me. almost makes this whole emotion worth it. 

I should go now quietly
For my bones have found a place to lie down and sleep
Where all my layers can become reeds
All my limbs can become trees
All my children can become me
What a mess I leave
To follow

Thank you so much, my dear! I'm so pleased with that octopus tattoo, too. Although if I had a skirt like that I would never take it off. :p

Octopuses are really cool, and they make great tattoo motifs! Also, the jellyfishes on her other arm are rad as well! I would love to have an ocean inspired tattoo sleeve myself, but with my psoriasis, I'm not sure if that's ever gonna be possible :(
Haha, well, that's true I guess XD

Ah, oh no. ): I'm toying with the idea of turning my lighthouse into a more ocean-detailed sleeve one day, but the money is definitely not to be found right now, so it's definitely not a tattoo priority.

I still might do it anyways, haha. It might not have a perfect result, but nothing in the world is perfect, right? It will have to wait though. First of all I should get a smaller tattoo and just see how my skin reacts to it. My psoriasis hadn't broken out yet when I got my first two tattoos (it was the damn lithium that triggered it). And regardless, I don't have the funds for it, and any money I get for myself I just want to spend on travelling anyways XD
I do have at least two smaller tattoos I want to get before that anyways, so we'll see if I ever get there. Tattoos, as much as I love them, aren't my biggest priority right now.
