the rush. the adrenalin. 'this will probably hurt' he says, i reply 'i like pain, i want this, i need this!' . and in goes the needle. straight into the back of my ear, nearest part to my thought cage. it is difficult, even after uno week, to believe that there is a ring through my ear. the pain has subsided, which thus encourages me to go again, another and another. though my sense of rationality stops me. more pain please.
