Put a Face to that Name!

I know we had a thread like this before but I don't want to look through 50+ pages to find it, plus the photos would be outdated. :P

I know I am always curious who I am talking to on the Forum and I thought it'd be great to be able to put a face to the Username! I think it would also help everyone feel more connected and like it's an actual person behind that computer screen.

So post photos of yourself and introduce yourself! (if you are under 18, please don't post photos of yourself unless you have parental permission)

Of course if you don't feel comfortable posting a photo of yourself that is understandable. No pressure.

My name is Kayla, I am 24, and I am awesome. Ha



I am nothing without my coffee in the mornings (and throughout the day, LOL)

Hi, I'm John, and when I was 24 I was awesome too. Now that I'm 71 I'm still awesome.

I've toned down my drag queen look over the last 2 years and I regret it so much! I loved how I looked before but was sick of people saying they didn't like my look. Oh well, I'm going to get back into it anyway

This is the most recent photo of me, sorry it's in black and white. I'm even starting to look big in my face now This is my every day sort of make up too, which never ever used to be as plain



And this photo I took when the light from outside hit my face weird but it sure did make my hair look good! Not so good on my face still though



I'm 19 coming 20, and female... just in case you were thrown off by the drag comment I LOVE their make up! They do it better than most women do I will give them that!

You're gorgeous Daisy! Don't give anyone a second thought when they give you comments like that. If they are saying they don't like your "look" then they don't deserve to see you, LOL.

Can I just say that I wish I could just go back to looking how I did when I was 18 too. -60lbs would be nice, LOL.

You guys are all so lovely! (Although I've already seen Daisy and Kayla before, haha!) Here is some photos of me.

Here is the most recent. I just got spider bites done (piercings).


This one is pretty recent as well. Using my new makeup for this!

Pfff, well then you need to find new groups of people to hang with. People can be pretty judgemental to people that have piercings, tattoos, dyed hair, etc though. It sucks!

Come on you blokes, post your photo.

I feel like the thorn among the roses with these gorgeous young ladies, all of whom I might add are young enough to be my grandchildren.

Cheers,

John.

Haha! Here it is at the moment. I had it done four years ago and it's horribly scarred (it shouldn't be so raised). At first I thought it was just swollen but it never went down. It's also quite gappy in the black so I'm having that redone

This is the sort of thing I'm going for though

Not quite like that but something along those lines

John - Daisy's tattoo turned out very nice! She should post pictures of it soon. Here are my tattoos, if you are interested in seeing them...

My first tattoo, on my thigh...


My second tattoo, on my back...


And my third tattoo, on my arm. These are just the lines, I've got the shading done now too (that's no in this pic) and all I need is color.

WOW! Very artistic. I've never had the desire to be tattooed , it could be that I never had the nerve too. Are there stories behind the tats, or were they just designs that took your fancy?

Cheers,

John.

Sorry I never got around to posting it. It ended up being a cartoony one because the style I wanted to go for just wouldn't fit with mine. The before and after is astonishing. If you look at the first photo, it looks blotchy and grey... Well look at it now

ImageUploadedByPG Free1396683190.145073.jpg

The artist said that once the swelling and similar goes down, it will really pop. He put a lot of whites and different browns and pinks into the colours so it would be more textured looking but as it's super swollen you can't really appreciate it all that much just yet

Here it is for a size comparison (sorry about the blood)

ImageUploadedByPG Free1396683265.289089.jpg

I'm pretty pleased with it. It's the only reason I hadn't moved on and had other stuff haha! I wanted it redone so bad so now I have finally sorted it I'm really happy
