Were you ever smart and a visionary!!! My son went through that phase and
the
artist in me smothered the wise mother and I said "Sure" Unfortunately - the
red
on top dripped down over the black on bottom and it was a hideous disaster
but he loved it. Maybe having this outlet stopped him from piercing or
tattooing body parts - but he did other stuff that made my hair grey - Years
later he moved out and we painted over - white - and drips showed through.
Will have to paper over someday in the near future. Think I should have read
the book "Tough Love" with more seriousness! LOL
