"My goal is to always come from a place of love... but sometimes you just have to break it down for a motherfucker" -RuPaul

I am a superlatively private person with a growing public internet persona, and thusly I am sort of keeping this journal aside as a place I can write down stuff I don't want everyone on Earth to read. So don't take it the wrong way if I don't add you back. :)

I have an amazing daughter named Rosey, and a wonderful partner named Dan, and I talk about them a lot. We are expecting a baby in late November, so I talk about that a bit, too! :)

I am an American expat (originally from Alaska, although I have lived/worked/gone to school in a few different states and have family all over the US) permanently residing in Australia, and I am a citizen of both countries. I identify very strongly as an Australian, but I do pay close attention to American politics (as everyone should, it certainly affects everyone on Earth).

I was a professional body modification artist for sixteen years, and owned and operated the Top End's original and best piercing studio, Vogue Body Piercing, for ten of those years. I closed up shop last December, and my former apprentice, viherminttu, is now running her own wonderful piercing studio in the same location. I have no intention of returning to piercing, and am studying midwifery and hope to make that my next career.

Everything that you ever wanted to know about me and my professional experience can be found on: my BME wiki entry, my AskBME staff page, or my IAM page. Please do not contact me privately with piercing-related questions. As I stated above, I have retired, and my personal life is busy and my free time is limited! Post to AskBME and I'll see it there, I do still volunteer and answer questions there from time to time. :)

People say nice things about my work: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15.

Credit for my Firefly moodtheme belongs to indilime, you can get them here. My Dr. Horrible animated moodtheme was created by drscompanion2, and you can get it yourself right here. Yes, I love Joss Whedon!

This is what I see when I read any of the body modification communities on LJ, haha. SO MUCH FAIL.
