My first experience with having my feet tattooed. If I had thought that the hand was hard... Thankfully friends Jackie Sidoni and Dana Ayotte from the now defunct queer punk bad The Stunts agreed to play drum and bass that round. This is them situated in the basement at the new location of The Hag, which moved to Hawkes and Heatley.
From one moment to the next, it was ticklish to agony.
Watching from a safe distance - though at one point Peter Conlin tried to tell me stories to ease my experience.
Thank you for visiting my blog, with which I am tracking and disseminating my research in live art. One of my seminal works is titled seamline, and an archive of the series can be found on this site. From May 2003 to May 2004, I had a line tattooed around the circumference of my body. I now live with the vestigal mark of the original series as a permanent and lifetime performance action engaging all who ask in conversations about contemporary, live/performance, conceptual art. I invite your comments and questions.
