i’m itching for a change. sadly, i just cut all of my hair off less than a month ago. i don’t want to dye or highlight it because i’m (a) lazy and (b) cheap, so the upkeep required for hair coloration is just not up my alley.
the only piercing i have ever wanted is my nose, and i’ve got it.
i would, however, love to get another tattoo. i’ve been pondering it for a while. my mom used to send me cards all the time once i moved to kentucky – random ones, for no particular reason, and also for halloween and valentine’s day and other little holidays. i saved them all. i want to bring one into a tattoo artist and get my mom’s handwriting – “love ya, momma” – tattooed on either my ribs or my foot. (i was also thinking the back of my neck, but i already have a tattoo in a place i can’t see – it’s behind my ear, and half the time i forget which ear it’s actually behind – and while i like it well enough, i want to be able to see this one.)
really i’m just itching to get out of me. do something that will make me feel altered, unlike myself, at least for a little while. sure, i’ll always come back to being me. hell, i hate my haircut, and if i don’t get it touched up soon i’m going to resemble a dandelion puff with eyes, but it served a damn good purpose at the time: got me out of a rut; put me in control of my life, even if it was just my hair; and doubled (tripled?) as a locks of love donation.
i just need a change, need to be a little less me for a while.
