:bulletred: About My Paintings :bulletred:

Each of my paintings has a significance that relates to my life. I like the connection of having something I like written in my own blood, it makes me feel that whatever it is, is a part of me. I do 1-3 paintings for each cycle and what I paint depends at my interests at the time. I have been painting since February 2013. I chose to put my art here because I am very curious to how the public will react to my paintings. I do love my paintings dearly and despite any negativity, I will continue to paint and love it.

:bulletred: About My Medium (Blood) :bulletred:

I have always been fascinated with blood since I was very young. When I started my monthly cycle, it would be such a burden and I would dread when it happened. However, my curiosity and fascination drove my to try painting a little heart on a piece of paper with it. I also love painting and took classes for 4 years when I was younger. Anyhow, I started experimenting with using my blood as a medium and I found it really exciting. I love using my own blood as a medium because when I paint something I like I feel like it becomes a part of me. I would never use anyone else's blood or animal blood of any kind because I feel like it defeats the purpose of giving myself a reason to look forward to my time of the month. I also do not support blood painting through self harm in any way. I believe that blood should only be attained painlessly and naturally.

Thank you! :) This is so sweet, and yes I'm still painting I just haven't uploaded for awhile, but I will certainly have to do that soon!

I heard from others (I will not say where/whom) that talked about your blood paintings. Honestly, I was a little grossed out before I started reading your information and other comments. Really, if this is something you like to do, then good for you ^^ It's quite an interesting take on art, that is for sure; but there is beauty in everything. Glad to know you've taken precautionary measures in making and selling your art, I hope you continue to make more!

Oh wow.. The hateful comments I see on your profile are absolutely astounding. It's a good thing I had to dig through the encouragement to find 'em though! 

On a personal level, I had never heard of 'blood painting' until I stumbled across your art. It surprised me initially, but I can't deny that what you create out of something most people throw away and forget about is beautiful though. Taboo certainly, but it seems to bring you happiness and a wonderful avenue for expression.. The fact that you share it with other people is amazing, and I just wanted to say --rock the fuck on keep up the good work girl :lol:

:hug:

You don't sell them to other people, do you?
Like, the actual painting?
Because if you do, you could make someone sick...
Although, your paintings are actually pretty interesting.

Don't worry, they are sprayed with a sealant coat and I only keep them for myself. If I were to sell anything it would just be prints of the art. Thanks for asking!
