Let’s go through the list, shall we?
- Stalking Cat was a computer programmer before he passed away earlier this year. He was Native American and trying to become closer to his totem animal. Through this, he helped pioneer all types of body modification and holds several Guinness Book Records.
- Erik Sprague, aka Lizard Man, was a former PhD candidate. He has a bachelor’s in philosophy and is a performance artist: both through international side shows and as a music festival host.
- Maria Jose Cristerna aka “La Mujer Vampiro” (Vampire Woman) is the mother of four children and a fuckin’ lawyer. She started her transformation after getting out of an abusive marriage, and has talked out against domestic violence.
- Rick Genest aka Rico The Zombie is a fucking international model, has more sponsorships than any of us could ever hope, and was featured in Lady Gaga’s Born This Way video. Not bad for a 27-year old former homeless punk, I’d say.I’m willing to bet you haven’t accomplished nearly as much as any one of these people. They’re not only heavily tattooed, but they’re also impressive as all hell in the “employed” department. But don’t worry about it—feel free to keep trying to make yourself feel better about your average life, average body, and average accomplishments.Successful, employed, intelligent, body mod legends.
i hate how the society makes you think just because you have tattoos and piercings that you can’t get a job. they are just trying to shape us. i’m glad more of us are starting to move things in the world so this no longer is a problem
It’s still a problem and I doubt that it will go away in the next 20+ years.
3 hours until the cookie giveaway is over. I trust that you will act wisely, accordingly, and with grace. JK. It’s just my homemade cookies. If you wanted verging-on-stale-but-still-quite-good cookies, you could probably get them from your upstairs neighbor Stan, who spends his weeknights baking for a girl who will never love him back, and whose dishwasher overflows into his sink.
