Dragora Druida was at the "Holly Hedge Fun Day" at Ashton Court just outside Bristol with her dog. The event was to raise money for the local animal rescue centre. At one stage my wife was there with our three Salukis, while I was busy as the master of ceremonies. When I saw someone with a quite heavily tattooed face I couldn't resist slipping a way from my duties for a few minutes to talk to her.
She got her dragon on the right side of her face in 2013. The others are all quite or very recent, with the one on her forehead being last May and the neck just a week before I met her in September.
She agrees that getting her face tattooed was a big step on from her body tattoos but she wanted them and wanted to be different. She loves the art. They are very personal and most have a dragon theme.
She hails from Manchester but lives in Bristol now. She agreed that you have to be very self confident to have face tattoos and have to accept people will look at them. But she forgets she has them most of the time because she herself can't see them, then she wonders why people are looking at her! Interesting.

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.
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.
The work in my groin and pubic area has been completed. Years ago Louis Molloy did the central figure in this picture but avoided going all the way. Now Ben has tattooed a circle of clouds all around the image that goes as far as it can without inking my genitalia. This completes the work on my torso. Added to that Ben has worked some hair detail on a much older art nouveau image originally tattooed in the nineties. Months ago Ben covered the black hair with brown. Today he gave the hair some texture. To mark the end of this phase Ben took some pictures of my whole body.
