We were using real barbed wire. There was a large potential for injury on all parts, and even with the incredible precautions we took, there was some damage done to both. But please do not try this at home. Don't get hurt cause you saw this, k?

I've been just dying to work with Adam, I'm a huge fan of his photography. Last night, we finally got to meet, and the "Barbed" Series ensued.

Model: Me
Photographer: Adam Chilson Adam has just joined dA, and can be found at *Doomsday-Dawn

Yes kids. It's real wire. The points aren't clipped or filed, they really are digging into skin like that. No photoshop either. This turned into one of those photos (and prints) that I looked at, and went "Is that really me? Wow..."

Ummm...Wow. A DD! I feel special :D Actually, all sarcasm aside, I am really proud to see this piece go up as a DD, I think it was well worth it. So thank you to ^scottb for featuring me, and to *semi234 for suggesting it! :hug: And thank you to all the people leaving me kind words, and fav'ing this piece, and others. I appreciate and value your thoughts quite a bit :)

Oh my god.
Definitely thought that was a chest/arm.
Then the boyfriend is just like, "Pretty sure that's the booty."

The restraint we put on things in our minds warp their natural, more beautiful state. Westerners have a large number of taboo's in regard to our bodies and sex.

It's interesting to see that concept in the flesh, so to speak.

Nice work.
