Week 3/52 : I myself am entirely made of flaws, stitched together with good intentions

The quote in my title is by Augusten Burroughs.  I can’t remember where I read it, but I do remember thinking that I definitely had to make a self portrait inspired by it because I loved it so much. I actually planned this self portrait last year, but I never got around to it. Fortunately, I had a little time this week to shoot and edit.

I had to Google some images of sutures/medical stitches to use as reference for this picture. I’ve never had stitches before, and I’m praying that I would never have to. I’m absolutely terrified of needles (and blood). While I was browsing through the photos I found, I could feel myself getting light headed because the sight of the stitches freaked me out so much T__T
