Son the Father


David writes in:

I was raised in the traditional Roman Catholic home. “Normalcy” was the standard. Throughout my formative years, I was focused on having a good education. The “real” world remained outside of my realm of existence; a private education saw to that. It was not until I entered college that I came in contact with a larger slice of life. I met people who were not Catholic, not white, and not straight. By the end of my collegiate years, I discovered that my real education was just beginning.

After graduation I discovered that I was not going to give my family the grandchildren that they wanted; stereotypes have a foundation, but are not the norm; leather has a function that has nothing to do with fashion; and piercings piqued my interest. The last twenty years or so have brought many revelations and piercings. I currently have nine. Not a lot by many people’s standards, but I ain’t dead yet! The simple stud from the mall piercings kiosk is gone. There are three ear piercings. They are currently holding tunnels and the possibility of making them larger exists. The erl through the bridge of my nose causes vast discussions. My kids, (students — nope, the parents have no grandchildren from my loins. All of that seed went into mouths and asses) from time to time, ask why I have a hole through my nose. I tell them that I was a parakeet in a former life. My friends laugh or cringe when I stick drink toothpicks through my septum. I have started keeping the labret in at work. The other piercings cannot be seen. My pierced nips work in concert with my last piercing, the PA.

What does the future hold? This summer I think I am going to work on an eyebrow piercing. Dermal piercings are hot, but I think they would interfere too much with my leather gear. Before I’m dead, the plans are a Jacob’s Ladder for the cock; a full body tattoo (including the shaved head) telling the story of the eternal battle between the Berserker and the Ulfendhar (sorry, I have never found a consistent spelling) within me (see? I told you that I learned a lot after college); and whatever shit we create in the future.

Damn, did not realize how epiphanic this writing would be! Whoda thunk it?

  1. haha. sounds quite like my upbringing and subsequent fallout. hats off to you!

  2. That’s fucking awesome man. i love to hear about people that actually put an effort towards breaking the norm.
    Kudos man.

  3. that’s awesome.. i love how he sounds so educated and polite then throws in bits like ‘all that seed went to mouths and asses’. this was a good feature. :)

  4. Very impressive. I love hearing these successful life stories. Keep on keeping on, man… ANd you fill those mouths and asses! haha

  5. Oi, Seven, didn’t it occur that it could have just been an old photo?

    Also, that’s a brilliant story. Keep the faith!

  6. This is my new favorite person ever! I hope I’m that cool when I have white hair.

  7. Great story + good mods. Well done for breaking away from your family’s restricted ideals! I’m so glad that you’ve become your own person! If only more slaves *cough* people would wake up from religion’s conservative clutches. I mean I can.. vaguely.. understand why people find comfort in believing in god/s, but I despise the way members police each other regarding what you can and can’t do in your life. Stop living in fear! Fear eats the soul! God is meant to love everyone and forgive all! Believe in what you want! Pah! Rant over… :P

  8. Great story
    Seems like a really awesome guy

    I can only hope to have a beard like that someday ;)

  9. #7,

    This is ModBlog, out of everything posted here you think that THIS is ‘shopped?

  10. it is consistent. if you look above hisright ear you can see the shaved scalp, you cna only see one ear piercing, that’s not to say he doesn’t have two on the other. I think this man is finally enjoying his life the way he should have been his whole life and that’s fantastic for him. Don’t be an ignorant asshole.

  11. Hammerhead: A piercing through the bridge in his nose??? How can this be? Must be fake right?
    And a story about a guy breaking the stereotype of his family? Again not possible right?
    Your a moron

  12. 1) I really don’t think anyone likes hammerhead, and I’m going to follow the crowd on that one ;)
    2) Big Kudos to this guy. I love someone giving normality, social standards, society and (particularly) religion the big finger. And doing it whilst being so eloquent! High fives all round :)

  13. i agree with # 4. . .awesomely eloquent + a little bit of asses and mouthes… =D

    i also agree with just about everyone–except #7 but mostly the comment made by jeremy [#18] seriously–THIS photograph over things like jacobs ladders and cum spurting out of a PA? there must be something wrong in your head # 7.

  14. I think it MIGHT be possible that I know this guy…then again there are a lot of Santa-like guys in the leather community! I was at MAL last month and one of the Santa-like leather guys commented that he’s going to a convention of Santas in Kazakhstan soon…I didn’t get his name, wonder if this is him.
