firesea: self-portrait

body mods: whys and wherefores

A community I read (bodymodif) had posted on it an interesting survey of tattooed/pierced women. I sent my answers to the researcher, but as I was struck with a rare episode of wordy eloquence while writing it figured I'd post it here as well, in case anyone's interested. (And if you're a tattooed woman, consider taking the survey! There needs to be more academic recognition of body modification as a healthy and normal behavior, I think.)
