Edgy Be Thy Name -UPDATED

I need a new me.

Science is making great and wonderful strides toward giving people new selves, so I am hopeful that one day I'll be able to dive into that pool.

That is when science can figure out how to give me the look I want without all the icky stuff like blood, stitches, bruises and potential infections. I've decided to wait until there is a no cut/zero pain solution, where the only pain reliever necessary is the consumption of chocolate.

What I CAN do now is change my hairz. {cool folk, such as myself, spell it with a 'z'...get on board the edgy train, people}

So, because I'm sporting a tattoo, I need to up the ante on my "look"...I need edgy, funky, COOOOL - because I'm SOOOOO gangsta now....with my frilly, feminine butterfly ink.

Tattooed people throughout the world just heaved a collective sigh while shaking their heads. Perhaps I should consider a skull for my next ink session - like a Dia De Los Muertos flowery one with pretty colors. That will totally put me right up there with the cool kids. Watch out, I'm gonna be all fly and shit!

Did you just roll your eyes at me?

Anyway...Since ink costs more than a visit to a salon - wait, no it doesn't. Salon visits can cost as much as a car payment.

BUT, they are less painful.

So...to kick my funk to the curb and try to revamp my self image (remember my be kind promise) I'm thinking of going from this:

This is really me - with what looks like a Cindy Lou Who
antenna sprouting from the top of my head.

To this....

This isn't me. It's Ashley Judd.
Who DOESN'T have antenna sprouting from her head.
The resemblance is uncanny...right!!

I'm just crazy enough to do it, too.

I've never been afraid of change, but during the last year I've found myself slipping deeper into a funk that I am desperate to claw my way out of.

I might even have some of the color from Ashley's dress woven into my hair.

That's right, you heard me.

EDGY by my name, yo!

Stay tuned...Peace.
2:06 P.M. - UPDATE = I done did it!!!

    MCA -- Do it. Do it. It will totally go with your tattoo. Also, too, you did the red feather before. My salon has glittery weave things. Yes, GLITTERY. All different colors, including...wait for it...PURPLE. Next time, peeps, next time.

    Em -- Bring the bebe. She'll wind up there someday anyhow, with a rockin' momma such as yourself.

  4. Haha, I can see it now. A one year old running around, while I'm hunched over getting my tattoo on my neck/upperback. Lovely. Of course with this town, we might just finally fit in!

    Lubs ya both. Move here now.

  7. That cut is AMAZING!!! You look so cute - in a Hot Mama kinda way, not in an "as a button" kinda way. And you'll be able to do that casual messy Victoria's Secret kind of hand-ruffled-tousle on the way out the door to do amazing things. And even if you're not planning to do amazing things, people will assume that's the plan because of your look. Woot!

    I'm gushing, I know. But, seriously, lady, you look great!
