Searching for SELFperfection by glittersniffer Searching for SELFperfection by glittersniffer
We are constantly searching for self-perfection,
It haunts us day and night
In front of the mirror, picking at everything we see
Ripping apart our stitches and trying to find the smooth perfection within
Nothing much matters on the inside… as long as it shows on the outside
Nothing much matters what our loved ones say, we still hunt our skin night and day.


:rose: :skull: :rose:
after doing a commission for VA I wanted to create my own image using a similar look, this subject of self-perfection is a sensitive one to me, as it seem to be for a lot of people …. It’s incredibly hard to break away from it and find happiness in our own skin, no matter how different it is from the –;perfection- that’s sold to us everywhere.

this makes me think of Ed Hardy...the colours especially. great concept, & great way of expressing it =) the skeleton bones painted on their ski reflect both their vulnerability and their seeking for smthing within.

beautiful work
something i think a lot of people can relate to
but for me self perfection is more spiritual and emotional than physical. it's not my looks that bother me.
i just want to be perfect on the inside.
it's somewhat distressing.
still this picture relates the feelings perfectly ^_^ self torment, reconstruction. lovely <3

thankyou hunny!
yeah i think everyone searches for the self perfection in many ways! either on the inside or out...
most people wouldnt have a problem with their exterior looks if it wasnt for todays media making perfectly good healthy people feel lesser about themselves.

screw the media and all their mindless crap
who wants to look like those weirdos anyway?
i think most of the people we envy are probably, in reality, more screwed up than ourselves O_o
