Hey. I had this as an icon once. Glad I found it on here as picture form. I make xanga layouts, and before I went off and used this picture for a layout I wanted to make sure you did't mind. If you don't want me to, please contact me. Thank you for your time.
No. I don't agree at all. I think that this IS you. This is what is real TO YOU. I really like it, and I think you did a good job.

This image expresses things that words can not. I've got a friend that saw action over in Iraq and right now he's in a mental ward because he's suicidal b/c he feels sooo guilty about the things he did, saw, and participated in.
Just wanted to comment on your pic there. And the title - interesting... and true. Permanence the point, but it's the transience and lack of anything permanent that may lead to this? Your scar is beautiful, never worry about it. If that is you, you're beautiful too. I hope you're ok and thanks for posting that. Hamish
Wow. Just saw your other photo. Quite powerful. I like. I used to paint my face too etc etc et-fucking-cetera. You don't know me from a bar of soap and we're probably a million miles away - I'm in Australia - but hope you're ok. There's nothing wrong with what you did there, it is beautiful and that last pic moved me. Just means you feel a lot, too much? Maybe. But who would give that up?
Echo. It's absolutely beautiful, you've got the stark contrast, the circle effect, and the subtle satire. I think it's awesome. I really love your work. I have your 7 Pains on my desktop and it's going nowhere. I love peoples' reactions when they see it, there simple ignorance. Idiots.
I lived in Australia for six months, so who knows? Maybe I do know you. Anyway, it was in Australia that I learned how to be happy and stop the cutting. I am okay now but I wasn't for a very long time. And...that's not paint.
Thanks for your kind words. They really mean a lot. Thanks for everyone's kind words, really.
