Hunter Tattoo by RunLikeATortus
Hunter Tattoo
A tattoo I designed to commemorate my name change. The word "hunter" is in the blade. The labrys represents my love of axes and their strength/power, but also their symbol of feminism. The red feathers symbolise my LARP character Baylee, through whom I've explored vast areas of my psyche that were previously unknown (i.e. living without fear and learning to be assertive).

I run a portrait, cosplay and pet photography business in the Perth region, check it out at www.kinetictortoise.com or follow me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/KineticTortoi…

If you want any of my work available as a print, just ask. Similarly, I am open to the idea of doing sewing/crafting/shirt painting commissions so feel free to ask. If you post or link to any of my work on another site please ask me first (let me know where/how you're using it), credit me and link back to either my profile or the work itself, here on dA.

This is my second dA account, devoted to photography and things I have crafted. This will hopefully only contain the better examples of my work, but if you want to see all the crap on my old account (or want to find out more about me) click this: tortus333.deviantart.com/

As you can see I'm all about colour and warmth in photos, so I almost never shoot in monochrome. I also try to keep post-processing at a minimum.

I'm all about abolishing the definition of beauty so if you have a problem with any of my models you must go through me. True beauty is in the "imperfections" and I refuse to retouch photos in order to make someone look like a barbiedoll. I'd rather see what's really there.
So I literally haven't used dA in over a month. I was working on writing a novel for NaNoWriMo. I used the description I wrote ("Cael" in my scraps) and managed to flesh it out into 63,000 words in 30 days. I'm massively impressed by how quickly I wrote, how little writer's block got to me and how well I formed a story from nothing. I will probably put it up on dA one day but it won't be any time soon and it won't be on this account. It's a wayyyyyy far away installment of a collaboration I'm hopefully starting next year with a friend so if that goes ahead we'll make a separate account for the things we make and this story will be added to that later on.

I'm totally fine with people reading it however, so if you want a copy just let me know and I'll send it your way.

Hope to be uploading things again soon, probably photos though, I think I need a short break from writing ;)

EDIT: Here's a link to a PDF version if anyone wants to read it: docs.google.com/file/d/0ByaObK…
