Photograph taken in August, 2005, by me.
This photograph was taken after I had cut off the vast majority of my long, curly hair. Although I didn't know it, it was the beginning of a transformation.
Before the haircut, July 2005. Getting my first tattoos. Taken by my friend Marissa.
I had been involved with someone who hated tattoos, and loved my long hair. Hell hath no fury like a woman shorn. Needless to say, things ended.
