Polly and I were having a chat in the café area of the Bristol convention and I was saying that if I were to dress in the way I feel as a tattooed man I would shave my head and have as long a chin beard as I could grow. Polly said why don't you take a look at the guy standing behind you. I did and saw someone with the longest beard I had ever seen. I wasted no time approaching him.
His name is Jonny from Sundsvall in Sweden, which is quite a long way north of Stockholm. For years he was clean shaven then he changed job and became an excavator and it meant him being a away from home for long stretches. So he started growing his beard. He then realised it was taking over. And it certainly has. I've never seen anything that long and very much doubt I could emulate it
He's very proud of it now and at one stage it was much longer than it is now - down to his knees. Once he stood on it while changing his shoes so he quickly took off about 10 centimetres.
He now lives in Bristol and has been here for the last two years. He has two sleeves most of which was done by Frankie at the Devils Den Tattoo Studio in Dublin. http://thedevilsdentattoos.weebly.com/
He was with Hannah Gill, his partner, who lives with him in Bristol, although she is originally from Cirencester. She has a beautiful arm tattoo by Lane Terowski at Old Salt studios in Milwaukee in the USA. www.oldsalttattooers.com She has many more planned. She had her head shaved the previous Monday. She might or might not tattoo her head but has many other ideas and locations planned elsewhere on her body before she applies her mind having a tattooed head.

This is how I look after being on hormone treatment for 18 months and after two lots of facial feminisation surgery. I have also had a lot of electrolysis on my beard. I have been transformed. And there is still quite a way to go yet. You can see some of my tattoos peeping out from the top of my dress. It seems evident now that my quest for a full body suit is linked to my gender dysphoria. I am not trying to suggest that everyone who gets a body suit suffer from dysphoria. Not at all. But in my case I think it is just one of a number of things I had been doing to change my appearance completely. Now my focus on being tattooed has dissipated as I continue my transition with my mind devoted now on my gender reassignment surgery scheduled for August of this year, 2020. Once my transition is finished then I must finish the work currently in progress on my legs. You can follow my transition via my YouTube videos. Just search for Zoë Genevieve Perry.
My mind is focussed on just one kind of extreme body modification - heavy tattooing. My body appearance has changed drastically in the past five years. But what are other people's body modifications of choice? One is a practice known as "tight lacing", in which the users of corsets embark on reducing their waist sizes to as small at 17 or 18 inches, if they can. It's not something that grabs me but Lacie here ( www.staylace.com ) has dedicated herself to the practice. There are others like her who take it very seriously. It's a fetish and not necessarily permanent. If you give up regularly wearing this special kind of corset then you will eventually revert to normal. I have no plans to embark on this myself, but before I pass any judgement must reflect that what I am doing to myself is even more extreme. The images here are truly eye catching. I have never knowingly met anyone who is into tight lacing yet there is a big community out there who do it.
These photos were taken by Susanna Ahvalo from Finland and were shot in Vilnius. Susanna is a professional photographer and there is nothing pornographic about her work. I am always happy to have some professional photos taken of my tattooed body. Had they been taken later this month you would have seen my left leg with its new tattoos. Ah well, I can't have everything.
