modern bride by suzi9mm modern bride by suzi9mm
remember "pain in the bottle" [link] ? well those needles were used to do the holes in her face (lips) :) (Smile) this was at the backstage after a show by Sirkus Tapaturma (Circus Casualty). the show was a small play actually, a wedding ceremony. painful one...:P (Lick)

i guess this picture would offer lots of manip oppurtunities but i really don't care right now, i'm soooo tired and just want to go to sleep... and besides i'm proud i feel i can present it as it is, i didn't basically even crop the pic for cryin out loud ! i added lots of contrast and a bit brightness. and i don't understand why the area under her chin looks so blurred...

she is Mona. enjoy.

I do.

:) I really like this, very tribal in some ways, the face paint and the piercings remind me of some of the ancient traditions of some native tribes of both America and Africa. I like.

I have never commented on this picture before, but I absolutely adore it. This was the reason, I think, I started watching you. I dont know what it is, the paint or the piercings, but I love it.

I dont know, I just felt compelled to say this. I'm in a weird mood today, excuse me. =p

Ouch! The ones on the top of the mouth look really painful! What gage are they?

Anywho I think this is really cool, somehow it reminds me of national geographic, but I really like it, and I think you picked an excellent angle.

culturalflux Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2002
Aghhh! Looks painful! It's kind of gross how you can see her teeth are all rotted too... You're one of my fav deviants Suzi, but I can't like this one, as I'm very squeamish about the subject matter.

Wow. That's a really impressive photo. +fav

somdomguy Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2002
Not the typical romantic church wedding - that's for sure! Really captured the moment with this, great shot!!! Love
maxrom Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2002  Hobbyist Photographer
Hmmm... how to comment... well, I like the look of this photograph not simply for its aesthetic merit, but also how it shows the sacrifices made in different cultures in the marriage ceremony. Very interesting how pain in our society might also equal pleasure in others. I love how you captured the essence of her feelings. "This might hurt now, but the rewards outweigh the pain." Magical piece. I love it. Love Worship
StrangeAnima Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Actually, you are more right than you may know as when it comes to temporary piercing the rewards (to be specific, the adrenaline/endorphin rush) do outweight the pain. Not to mention that for some the sting/pain of the needles themselves can be pleasure as well.

”With these rings piercings and chains
in pain and submission I thee wed”
Striking and compelling picture filled
with anthropological and psychological resonance.

wow, that´s an amazing shot, I love the colors, which fit perfectly to the theme!

Cool! Great work Nod
superkev Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2002  Professional Photographer
Ouch! It does look like it hurts. But, good work for capturing this in an artistic fashion. I like how you've isolated the subject on a plain but not anesthetic background. Great detail and exposure. I don't understand the blurring either, but it's still an excellent photo.

hmmm... those rings in her lips really look painful :D (Big Grin)

LOVE IT........ Especially since im such a fan of pain :) (Smile)

The exposure is dead on...I love the contrast between the white and red and how the white paint on the face almost blends perfectly with the background.
