Out, damned spot!

Points for you if you recognize the quote. This is the final set from the shoot with photographer Travis McKeithan.

***Trigger Warning for blood and self injury***

Many of you may not know that I struggled with self injury for over a decade. I haven't relapsed for about two years now, but it's still something I deal with on a regular basis. If you or someone you love deals with self injury, please check out the website TWLOHA (to write love on her arms). It has fantastic resources including a blog, online store, resources to find help, and more. SI is a serious issue that effects people regardless of age, gender, race, income level, or any other characteristic.

No, it's not real blood, it's completely fake. This is one of my favorite sets.. maybe I'm a gore girl at heart, or maybe I just really enjoyed doing something completely different! Enjoy!








By the way, fake blood tastes absolutely disgusting.








This last photo was the inspiration for the title. ;)

  1. I believe the quote is from the Scottish play. Lady MacBeth's dog, Spot, was always trying to come into the kitchen with dirty paws just after the serfs had mopped the floor.

    Okay, I invented that bit.
