Samantha at Scarwars 2006

Another highlight from the February 2006 Scarwars event in Los Angeles was meeting and getting to know a piercer named Samantha from Northern California. She had a collaborative cutting done on her chest that was documented by photographer Atom Moore while it was in progress, but this portrait by Rachel Larratt, while significantly less bloody, is still my favorite of her from that weekend.
