AND! at that time, she was what I loved & wanted for my little thought up nugget & alter-ego.[appearance, concept, personality, overall image etc] BUT, that's sooo' 2016!! If ya didn't know, it's 2018 now, time for changes bitches!
TBH – I stopped liking her & thought she was, well, a bit “outdated” ha ha!
Belladonna’s original (2016) "persona" – sassy, sexual, doesn’t give a shit about what other people think or say about her (sometimes), she rocks a “I don’t give a fuck” attitude, she’s weird with more than enough curiosity”
A LOT has changed though. everything actually.
Without further ado...
I’d like to introduce my *new* BELLADONNA (my version)
Designed by @artbytuss /James Nicholls
I've been working with Artist/Graphic Designer James Nicholls for about a month, going back & forth with ideas & changes - we were pretty much the Botch Doctors (yaknow, fixing up the fucked up shit lol) ! Poor James had to deal with my indecisiveness & potty mouth typing, throughout. WE SLAYED!!
I found Batman (James) through one of my FAV. Youtubers - Kris Fox. He had work done by James. I fell inlove!! So, I did what any bitch would do; I stalked his Instagram (his work is amazing) and sent him a DM. The rest is behind the scenes shit.
The 411 OF BELLADONNA yo!
Everything has a purpose. & Everything changes.
Est. 2018, March 1st. - The completed new version of Belladonna was finalized two days before March 1st, but I chose the date as it is the anniversary of my accident.
Character - Still a badbitch. Potty-mouth. Loves herself. Open-minded. Silent. Weird. Confident. Opinionated. Rocks a *no fucks given* attitude. Tattoo lover. Fur baby obsessed. Activist. Innocent but deadly. Lover. Loyal. Indecisiveness runs through her veins.
BEHIND THE IMAGE:
With research, you’d know "the name Belladonna means 'beautiful lady' as well as the name of a poisonous flower also known as deadly nightshade, which gives an otherwise flowery name a darker, more exotic side.”
So, my version of Belladonna means –
More than just a girl in a chair.
More than just disability.
More than just exposure.
More than just a semi-naked girl.
Don’t judge without knowing the story.
Love. Obsession. Addiction.
Life through another persons’ eyes.
NO FUCKS GIVEN.
Don’t mistake kindness/loyalty for weakness.
No limits, no boundaries.
EXTRA SHIT YOU MIGHT WANA KNOW -
Eye - we used my actual eye for this. I want you to see my version of life.
Little red book – Book form of the “blog”
Middle finger – Fuck the bullshit! Fuck the rules! Fuck the ignorance! Fuck the shit that tries to ruin your soul!
Leg - my actual Ta Moko (represents my Maori culture & family).
Right arm - yaknow, she’s the front page of the site so it’s only fitting that she has the name of it tatted on her.
Chest - no way possible to see it, but my chest tatt is on her as well --it’s there! It really is!
Left arm - my Jack & Sally cunt tattoo & “Inked Doll"
Under boob - “KATE" – this isn’t an actual tat on my body but she’s my love! No explanations needed.
Headpiece – The headpiece of a Nun. Wasn’t chosen out of disrespect. I chose it as my representation of being pure.
Babies – our two little protectors! Jirugi & Maverick #whenspeciesdoesntcount
- she's bits & pieces of me. mixed with opposite shit of myself. she's my alter-ego! She’s my Belladonna & together, we're blogging life off the edge!
