FLASH BACK FRIDAY.... A throwback to my tattoo modelling days... truth be told I’ve never been so sad as I was in the days these were taken.... I managed to get myself published in @xpressions_magazine
in spite of relentless bullying by a local Hamilton alternative model .... she had me blacklisted with photographers, and other tattoo magazines, and even other tattoo artists... because of a boy and because she didn’t like me. I pushed harder than I have ever pushed to prove her wrong.... to prove I wasnt the “wanna be” she claimed I was.... and this was a big win for me. Mind you what it cost me (depression and 2 suicide attempts) wasn’t worth it in the end and I disappeared after this. It’s crazy to look back and remember it all.... The point is:
1. You never know the struggles someone is facing even when the outside doesn’t show it
2. If you want something go for it! No matter what others say about you. No matter how many roadblocks you hit, no matter how many “No’s” you get ... a yes is right around the corner.
3. Stand your ground and fight for right over wrong and fight against injustice
