I had taken a break from SPT because of computer issues. I still can't properly download pictures on my new set up at home, but I'll draw from my photo well just to get back in the game. This month's theme over at Self Portrait Challenge is Enclosed Spaces.
This picture was taken in the last fifteen minutes of a five hour tattoo session. I am on my elbows in this picture, but the majority of the time my chest was pressed against my thighs, up until I thought my hip flexors had fused to a permenant 15 degree angle. In this picture, I was ready to punch this guy in the face. I kept telling him that too. During these five hours, I felt trapped in a near-fetal position. I thought I would just day dream about a million things while the artist did his thing, but I could not get a steady fantasy reel going because of the pain. I could only meditate in swirls of color. I had to escape deep in my mind because I felt folded up and put in a box.
