There were many ways to do it, but it always had to be done. Until you made your bones in the world, you were nothing. There would be risk at all times, but this rite of passage meant something to anyone recognising the sign of it.
At first glance, a casual observer would not know of her status, of what she had done. That was the point of course. At this stage of her career, she needed to be able to blend in with the crowd, hiding her hard won markings under clothing to pass along the streets in the smarter areas of town. These forays into smart suburbia funded many a decadent habit, and with the access to businesses, and abodes that the relevant costumes gave, along came ample chance to case future crimescenes. This innocuous facade was easily discarded back on her own turf, when she would return to clothes chosen according to her taste and style.
Of course, back in the district her bones had brought her, low cut clothes that showed off her signature ink were fantastic, but not something she always felt she had to wear. Her bones, hard earned, were hers to display. They demanded respect from others, anyone looking twice knew what she was capable of, what she could achieve. This brought trouble from challengers, and admiration from acolytes. As meaningful and beautiful as these macabre designs were, she didn't mind at all.
Here is the first in a series showcasing some of the designs currently available at +REDRUM+. There's a lot of MESH items, which are available in the range of standard sizes, so if you are willing to shape yourself to fit these, there are some fantastic designs. Here, the Wolf is one of a range of dark themed and grungy tops, paired with jeans, textured with x-rays of the bones they conceal. Of course, I love the Ribs tattoo, clear and concise detail, shown here on a full tattoo layer, two other versions included.You can find the items at the +REDRUM+ Marketplace store here...
