Not shot through the heart but stabbed in the chest.
Nearly 22 years ago I got my nipple pierced after I broke up from a serious relationship. I did it to reclaim my body, to do something for myself and I’ve always loved it. I took my jewellery out for four years while I breastfeed my two children and was surprised and delighted when one day I tried it back it and it hadn’t healed over. For the last five years I’ve changed my jewellery every Saturday and taken a photograph of my new jewellery in situ and posting it online became my normal. My Saturday jewellery change has been an integral part of my blog and one of the only things along with my SinfulSunday images that I’ve done every week. This has punctuated my life and given me structure. Even through difficult times.
It’s a personal labour of love to find creative and beautiful new ways to showcase my ever increasing jewellery collection. I’ve probably spent more time photographing my left breast than anything else in the world. Today I thought I would combine it with my Sinful Sunday image.
The red lipstick target wasn’t an easy thing to draw on myself in a mirror and it was equally difficult to remove afterwards. But the best things in life are never easy.
