Oh, I wasn't aiming that at anyone who didn't like the avatar, just specifically at LTK. I get distracted by animated avatars too, and since I usually identify a poster by their avatar it's tricky when they change a lot.

Oh wait, I missed that post entirely.

What makes the difference to me between a split tongue and pierced ears or nose is that I consider my tongue to be a lot more sensitive and important than a flap of skin or cartilage that doesn't have as many sensory cells. So it's not so much the cosmetic appeal/disappeal as it is a question of how you could bear to cut through all that meat.

My avatar past is this Half-Life 2 Deathmatch one, pretty much. I rarely find a suitably sized picture that I like enough to bother changing it here.

See, that one just makes me laugh.

Maybe it's just the girl who weirds me out. I don't get it!

Well, some of it is about the girl! The smile, eyebrow raise, widening eyes, and second smile somehow makes it more creepy.

There are so many things I could say about that picture.
Okay, so the art just doesn't really look very good. Looks very 1980s show promo. I guess. Shit, its overwhelming here.
The right hand looks really really awkward. Who actually holds a chain/rope like that?
All of the clothes look like an afterthought and that just upsets me on many levels.
The background has no place looking as polished as it does.
It actually makes me want to hurt myself.
I'll have more later

Actually, that is a Fanart piece based off this Angels2200 Comic from 2007

Rizzo's Transmet av makes me so happy.
I use this one on last.fm and a few other forums, along with "one percent" if I get vanity text.


My current is a close crop of a photo I took of the National Cathedral in DC. I usually use a crop of the man and woman that are facing each other but wasn't sure if chiseled side-boob was appropriate. Later I caught sight of a penis-av or two so I may re-crop it at some point and go with the shot I like.

The tongue avatars freak me out though. I'm not really creeped out by split tongues, but like someone else said, maybe it's because it's repetitive.

No, someone made a comment about the art of the avvie I had and I merely decided to give some information to place it in context.

That's all, no biggie.
