Custom for Audrey. By Jessa Moulin.
Where does my ego stand?
It’s hard to build yourself up from nothing.
Social creatures sucking life from each others mouths,
Praise lamenting, dripping down
Thickening and slowing the praised
Until their thoughts clot in their brains
Stopped up in their delighting on themselves
And what of the giver you say?
To make their connection,
To rush from mouths- impulses of surface lust
Stroking the others ego to feel the love of the beheld
Self serving triteness
Held together by their egos…
I am not the cover of a book
My insides dip deeply
and lately they end somewhere around a black hole
The sadness I feel being a part of an empowered weakened species
The truth of beings who are conscious that they will one day no longer exist
So we must be the best we can be
Live fully enjoy truth and beauty and create
Or decide to survive by becoming a part of the whole
And choosing not to believe
That our bodies,
And the idea of our conscious ego and soul
Die when we do.

It’s this Friday, May 25th. If you’re in Paris I’d love to see you there! Free party punch, and I’m going to try to make some goodies if I can tear myself away from the drawing board long enough!
karlmarc asked: Thank you for the follow, I like your photography, especially the double exposure nudes. Where are you doing your tattoo apprenticeship?
I am actually having my first exposition of my tattoo paintings in Paris, and my first apprenticeship fell through but in a couple weeks I’m meeting with Guy in toulouse and I hope that goes well! I’ve emailed you before actually :) I love your machines, especially the ones with the old antique brass frames! Thank you so much for the kind words about my photography. I don’t get to do it so much lately as I’ve been working on the tattooing portfolio for months. I love your tattoo work as well, it pops up on my feed on FB. I really need to stop by Mystery club, You guys arent so far from my house- I live by Jaures! Anyway, your message made my day! Hope I get to meet you soon :)
