“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.
When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said, ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?’ (‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are.)”via Occupy Sweden
Little Swastika’s last bodymod is cutting his ring fingers.
What he says:
“i was thinking of this bodmod since at least 6-7 years. sure it was more a idea than i ever had thought to do it.
the last two years i was thinking about it more and more and really was thinking and trying how it would be without. i was pretty sure it will not efect me in my life. but sure there will be never a 100 procent garanty and notlike most bod mods a easy way back.
this was by far one of my biggest boarders to cross and one of the most vrazy experience at all i survived in my life.
if you believe it or not. this have no other resons of reshape my hands, mutate them into some hands not every fucking human have. as the only creature on this planet we can create our own body [I think he means, as the only thinking creatures, or something like that]. so why not.
just two fingers to create my own hands.”
This cause a very big argument on Facebook when he posted this. Lots of negative comments from close minded people.
I really don’t know how I feel about this.
I feel as though there’s always a line that some modified people draw between what they find acceptable and what they don’t. I feel as though modification is always modification, whether it’s adding or removing. It’s changing and altering the body to achieve what you want and what makes you happy. I commend him for doing what he wants as it doesn’t affect anyone else. I think this is awesome.
Sorry nope. This guy looks retarded… And as someone who is NOT close minded, an artist, and an advocate for being original and whatnot… this is so far over the line, I’m not even sure where he is anymore. “Im just going to cut a couple fingers off cause I think it might look cool” …. What a fucking idiot. And I would also like to point out that he’s pretty educated, what with all that great grammar and spelling.Well he’s from another country and writing in English. I only know a basic amount of Spanish and no way could I type paragraphs in another language. How can you say you’re “NOT close minded”…. And go on to post an extremely closed minded opinion? You’re an “advocate for being original and what not”…. But bash on some dude you don’t even know, doing what HE wants to HIS body? You’re an artist but won’t respect another artist for his work even if its in a physical and personal form? If it ain’t for you, then it ain’t for you. No need to call someone “retarded” for doing what they want. (I won’t even go into how fucked up that is tonight.) Fucking done with this site tonight.
Still a dream.

I’m so detached and distant and cold at times, but I swear if you spark my interest, I can become so clingy and you’ll become so important to me and I will put so much of my time and effort towards you. But then you’ll get tired of me.
