Blogger turns skin removed in designer vagina surgery into necklace
Controversial blogger Tracy Kiss has taken upcycling to a whole new level by using her own labia as jewelery.
Tracy, from London had surgery to remove excess skin from her labia after suffering 29 years of painful problems, and decided to use it, not lose it.
Tracy explained to Metro how she first realised something was wrong after feeling a burning sensation down below after exercising.
Her doctor diagnosed a cyst caused by friction because of the excess skin on her labia and she was advised to have it removed.
After the operation, Tracy asked her surgeon if she could keep the skin and proudly displayed it at home in a jar full of surgical fluid.
Tracy explained: “I have kept my labia in a jar since my surgery to celebrate my freedom from pain as it took me 29 years to realise that anything was wrong with my tender protruding labia because nobody has ever talked about it.”
After the unneeded flesh has been sitting in it’s jar for some months, it turned from pink to grey and Tracy started to look into ways of preserving it which would be more attractive.
In a video on her blog, Tracy walks us through the steps it took to make two wrinkly, slug-like bits of her own flesh, into a glittery pendant she’s clearly proud to wear.
The first step to making flesh into finery was to remove the pieces from the surgical fluid and dry them out for 48 hours.
Tracy used a cereal box, cotton thread and tiny pegs normally used for hanging Christmas cards to create a tiny washing line for the labia.
Once they were dry, a liberal coating of shiny pink paint was applied.
After that followed an avalanche of glitter.
Tracy then used crystal resin and a jewellery mould to make the final pendant design which she threaded onto a choker and proudly displayed.
Tracy is passionate about speaking up about the issue of female genital surgery, and she hopes her unusual pendant will be a talking point.
“Its contents may not be immediately obvious to the unsuspecting eye or to everybody’s taste” says Tracy, “but that’s the beauty of it.”
Tracy isn’t afraid of utilising whatever bodily parts or fluids she has to hand in her quest for fitness and happiness. She has made headlines before talking about her love of sperm smoothies and semen facials.
