"Beauty Mark"

©Leigh 2009


I've got a beauty mark
written on my skin
close to my heart
my favourite part
my beauty mark

i keep it out of sight
safe from the world outside
this old battle scar
this secret part
my beauty mark

this little death
this mark of sin
forever printed on my skin

i'll keep it for you

this hidden place
this private part
this secret door into my heart

i'll keep it for you

this precious jewel
this darling bud
this tiny resevoir of blood

my beauty mark
i'll keep it for you

Charlotte Gainsbourg ~ Beauty Mark

Art based on a photo by Steven Klein of model Laura Stone.

This is an absolutely stunning piece! I love the hat and the dollups of color. Her face is haunting and beautiful at the same time.

The lyrics are very befitting as well.

I hope you're having a great weekend, my friend.

I like your aesthetic, Leigh, really :) I personally like them more than the ones Danny Roberts makes, since absolutely none of your tend to be kitschy in any sort of way ;)
I remember ordering from etsy twice in the past and not once did they arrive here ,they always get stolen or lost in the customs of postal offices, I wish I'd live somewhere else :D
Thanks a bunch for replying on my blog as well :)
