ah the joy of dreads

I just thought I'd join the line in posting more pics of my dreads. They're horribly frizzy and wild, they'll be one month old in a few days, and I absolutely love them... so here they are.

and it has a little stick figure on it with dreads.

the other night a saw someone i hadn't seen for a good 2 or 3 years, and apparently they were shocked by my appearance. now, yes, i've changed quite a bit since she'd last seen me, but the statement she made intriuged me - "well, you have all those piercings, it's no wonder you have dreads too."

do body modification and dreadlocks go hand in hand? i'd love to find out. who here is modified? what do you have, and do they relate to your locks at all? i know for me, the piercing process has as much gravity with me as the locking process. honestly, i'd consider locking more of a modification than some piercings, due to the permanence of it.

i'll start.
i have two 8g tongue rings, off center.
one standard navel ring.
one standard nostril ring.
earlobes stretched to 1 and 1/4 inches.
one center lip ring.
one nape (back of neck surface)

come on and participate, dreads are love, bodmods are love, and i'm really interested to see what everyone has to say!

I did a lemon soak today, and did not rinse the lemon out. At dinner my six year old cousin leans over and asks why I smell like her dinner....we were having fish and chips.
