Do you guys get stopped all the time with people asking to take a picture of you? or is my town just weird? I get stopped ALL THE FREAKING time with people asking for photos of or with me. I jut smile and say sure, at this rate though I should start charging. It's fun and flattering, but sometimes annoying as hell. Anyone else ave this happening?
Yeah its fucking weird. I wish people would piss off.
Had some idiot ask me in a bar to take my photo but he was just using it as an ice breaker cause then he kept trying to talk to me when I was clearly with my boyfriend and wanted him to leave me alone.
one of my guy friends had a trihawk and we could never hang out together without complete strangers walking up to him and asking to take his picture. They'd stop us while we were walking, they'd interrupt our conversations, disturb us while we were eating etc. even after we'd say no, they were still very persistent and shortly after we had to start being rude.
people not taking no for an answer and treating other people as if they only solely exist to amuse them is irritating. I'm here for myself, not for anyone else. I wear my hair this way for me, not for you. People need to get that in their head.
I get the most attention when I go to motorcycle shows (They're a big thing in my area).
A lot of people are more interested in the "bald" part rather than the actual hair, it seems like. They like to feel the bald portion to see if it's not a cap / fake or something. Then they'll want to snap a picture with me.
The second most interesting thing to them is seeing whether or not my piercings are real, too. They're pretty extreme for ear piercings (two industrial bars that form a cross on one ear, and two conch orbitals on the other - the orbitals are at a pretty big gauge. And my earlobes themselves are stretched to 2g.) I usually wear tusks in my septum, so they're asking about if I killed the animal or not to get the bone or whatever. (???)
:astly, a lot of people seem to ask about my D20 (Dungeons and Dragons) tattoo near my left elbow.... They're more interested in that (in a positive way, luckily) than the above two things, for some reason.
