Procedural shots are always fun. Especially when they’re of a tongue split. Ryusuke sent this photo in, and what caught my eye wasn’t just the split, but also the eyes. You can see how they’re looking off into the distance, to a place where the split is completed, away from the pain that the tongue is experiencing. People deal with pain in different ways, for some, meditating or focusing on a distant place can free the mind from the pain, allowing the person to experience something unique to themselves. There’s no right or wrong way to experience pain, it’s just a matter of doing what is best for your own satisfaction.
