Crying Men is a series of photographic portraits of famous film actors that explores the relationship between society’s perception of what is masculine and attractive. Artist Sam Taylor-Wood took portraits of her subjects, well known leading men, as if they were in character. Engaging in the emotional connections, each image is a portrait not only of the man, but of the stereotype that “real men don’t cry”.

“Some of the men cried before I even finished loading the camera, but others found it really difficult, said Taylor-Wood. “People can decide for themselves which they think are the authentic tears and which they think are fake.”

Last week on 12-13-13 (Friday the 13th) I got my 13th tattoo done as an homage to myself and my mom battling breast cancer. Update on her: the lymph biopsy shows no signs of cancer so no spreading, thank God. However the healthy tissue margins from the surgery were too small so she had to go back after the new year and get more cut out from her breast. Then 3 weeks after that she’ll have radiation therapy on that breast for 10 to 15 minutes EVERY DAY for 6 to 7 WEEKS straight. But she is out of the woods thankfully! So thank you all my wonderful IG friends and all mu plur family and sisters especially! #plurvibes #plursisters #thankGod #breastcancer #pinkribbon #recovery #breast #cancer #cancerawareness #kitty #purpleleopard #pinkribbontattoo #fridaythe13th #13thtattoo

My mother has been very sick since 4th of july and was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and she had a lumpectomy this past Friday bit we won’t know what happens next until her follow up on Thursday the 12th. I have been busy taking her to loads of doctor’s appointments and just haven’t had time for anything except my birthday a few weeks ago, and even with that I felt bad for celebrating. I am simply at a loss since my grandmother on my father’s side died a few years ago from ovarian cancer. We could really use some prayers. But you all are always in mine as well because I know everyone has their own trials too. #inneedofprayers #pleasepray #textagram #breastcancer #cancerawareness #prayers #dealingwithcancer #familyissues

Sorry I haven’t posted much everyone but life has been a little crazy and a bit depressing but I’m trying to get through it. So here’s an old picture of Peter Steele of Type O Negative. I’ve been stuck on their music the past couple weeks. #lifeissues #abitdepressing #gettingthroughit #petersteele #typeonegative #playgirlmagazine #sexy #hot #muscles #darkbeauty #feelingmorbid
