In 2011 i got signed by a model agency and did a lot of fantastic shoots and shows, one of them was for swedis ELLE. For that shoot, they decided to paint my whole body in gold, every inch of me, even in my ears. They even painted inside my stretched lobes. It was an amazing photoshoot and the result was stunning. (Picture 1, picture 2)
Unfortunately, this gave me and infection in my left lobe. I removed my plugs to give my ear a chance to heal but it just got worse over time. The lobe got thinner and thinner and one day, it teared apart. This means i've got a broken lobe on my left ear (click here to see how it looks now) and need to use bandage to hold the ends together and be able to use plugs. I could just let the parts dangle free, but it looks horrible and i'm starting to get really tired of having to put bandage in my ear everytime i have to go somewhere. I'm also fed up with with getting the question all the time; "why do you have bandage in your ear?"
I've talked to a nurse and asked them to repair it multiple times, but they all say they wont do it because it's too cosmetical. So i've done some research and i've found out that there's body modification studios that'll do this for me, but it'll cost me money i don't have. I don't work at the moment since I'm a full time student and the amount of money i get from being a student is just enough for rent, food and bills.
The other procedure I'm raising money for is my tongue split. I've wanted to get my tongue forked for so many years now that I can't even remember. I've thought it through for so long and it has gotten to the point that I have dreams at night. I dream that my tongue it finally splitted and that the feeling of relief is beyond this world. After these dreams, I always wake up in panic when I realize that it's still in one piece and it can make me feel bad for days. This is also a procedure that I can't afford, even though I feel that I really need it. And since my 23th birthday is coming up, it could be considered a birthday gift.
And this is why I've started this found. I really need your help to make these procedures possible. Every single donation, no matter how big it is, matters more than you'll ever know.
The cost for the lobe repir is 2500 SEK and the tongue split is at 3000 SEK. The trip will cost me about 1000 SEK since it's in Stockholm and I live in the north of Sweden, Skellefteå.
Total amount of money needed: 6500 SEK (about 1000 USD)
Both of the procedures will be filmed and posted on my youtubechannel:
Thank you so much for reading, much love to you all.
