Something for you, a Southern legacy

History is rife with examples of human ingenuity. Art, science and spiritual mechanisms which visions have made a mold of our world and so, it seems, a canvas of ourselves is created. Generation upon generation from cave to condo are steadfastly intent upon redefining the human image. Tattoos, body sculpting, piercing and sacred adornments are part of the everlasting human psyche and, not surprisingly, more common among 'free thinking', spirited and spiritual people.

The trend to increasingly innovative interpretations of the human body is more prevalent today than ever before and among people inclined to vegetarianism and the spirit of life that underlies such reverence for life, expressions of self are significantly on the rise.

Artists, venturers in the spirit world, fire walkers, transmorphants and tribal centric humans are more likely to express themselves as part of the circle of life, dependent upon it, and subservient to it; caretakers and taken care of as the last creature of a creation the never ends and not simply a user, or an outsider but rather a creator, a being, an animal.
