Along the same lines as the previous two entries is Jonathan‘s stunning facial cutting, another piece that just makes me so happy to see because it’s also so striking and beautiful.
The design was an idea I’d had in mind for maybe 18 months to two years and was umming and ahhhing over whether to get it done or not. When I went out to Thailand I was lucky enough to get to hang out with John Durante and Ron Garza and had a chat with them about some possible work I’d been thinking about. Since I was in Phuket for the Vegetarian Festival which, essentially, is a festival celebrating blood rituals, I couldn’t think of a better time to get them done to go through my own blood ritual.
The initial plan was to get both sides of my head done in tandem, one side by Ron the other side by John but Ron had to leave before the festival ended so it was just John doing both sides. We spent about three hours lining them up, and then about half an hour cutting. I’m so glad I had them done. Even in a not so perfect environment he was excellent, hygienically, and professionally speaking and I’m happy to have met so many wonderful people including Ron and John on my journey
Joathan says there’s no specific meaning in the design, and that he just wanted something symmetrical that suited his face. Mission accomplished! Anyway, continue for more pictures.
The fresh photos are, of course, fresh, and the healing pictures are at about three weeks. Once our video facilities are back in full gear we’ll update this with a procedure video as well.
