@Lisa_Fav asked the story of my avatar so here we go. There will be blood.
  1. Five years ago, @ashleycardiff and I were hungry. We decided to buy a fish and have fun with the parts.
  2. We became fast friends with this mackerel and decided to make it live forever by having a photo shoot.

  3. The fish didn't seem to mind.
    Static
  4. We didn't really know what we were doing but we watched a YouTube video or two and then just got the knives out.
    Static
  5. And stuck our fingers in.
    Static
  6. We explored a little.
    Static
  7. Then just started ripping parts out.
    Static
  8. We made a couple cuts behind its cheeks/gills because we needed that head off.
    Static
    We didn't really need the head off. It's more that we wanted to get it off.
  9. We did it.
    Static
    Back to exploring. Hands back in the main cavity.
  10. A quick rinse!
    Static
  11. It's fun to hold a headless fish like this.
    Static
  12. You should try it!
    Static
  13. Oh right, the head...
    Static
    Bored and ready.
  14. This was inevitable.
    Static
  15. This wasn't, but we did it anyways.
    Static
  16. Now we're just committed to making this gruesome.
    Static
  17. "Success"
    Static
    Attainable goals. Sometimes just planning to "rip something's guts out" is a good enough place to start.
  18. Mostly, we just wanted to play with its decapitated head.
    Static
  19. This is an album cover for a Swedish darkwave band.
    Static
  20. The back cover.
    Static
  21. Something a little more candid.
    Static
    For flyers and posters and such.
  22. Ashley put the raw fish head in her mouth first.
    Static
    Always the case.
  23. And I'm a natural follower.
    Static
  24. So birthed my avatar photo.
    Static
    I use this pretty much everywhere.
  25. But we still needed to eat.
    Static
    So we stopped playing with the parts and put the rest of the dish together. We threw the head in there for good measure tho.
  26. We had to stuff it a little.
    Static
    We just wanted to put more things inside of it, I think. But it came out pretty well!
  27. And then we ate it.
    Static
  28. Thanks for the good times, dead fish.
