For those that enjoy getting large tattoo and/or scarification pieces done that require multi-sessions, so you tend to start one project and then work on it to completion before starting another project? Or do you tend to have multiple projects in the works at any one time.
The reason I ask is because I may be in the position very soon of having two projects in the works at once by two different artist. I like having different artists work on me. I'm getting my left sleeve finally finished (its been months since my last session and is so close to being done now) and I want the artist working on my left sleeve to also do my right when the left is completed. However, I am also about to go into a consult for my soon to be back piece so I'll likely have both a sleeve and a back in the works simultaneously.
I tend to see myself holistically as a 'project', with each mod relating to the others. So various parts are in progress at a time, and in effect i'm never finished,!
Having said that, while i view my tattoos in this context, i don't like having unfinished work, so i suppose perhaps compartmentalise these…..
I'm not sure if this answers the question!
I actually view my own body modification journey rather similarly. My self transformation is a project in and of itself and each piece is kind of a chapter in that larger project. This is the first time I'll have the experience of having 2 pieces being worked on simultaneously but I guess I'm just too eager to have both of them get done soon.

I think it's interesting to have more than one project running, because I think the combination of multiple experiences at a time gives a more complex and varied experience. Just to see the progress and getting to the core of it by examining your mental state in connection with the pieces, in this case your tattoos, can lead to another view of your body. My bodymodification journey is a constantly work in progress, but I discovered that my vision on my journey changes alot. I believe it's because of the experiences I'm having, and that's exactly why I think it's interesting to have multiple projects running. I hope my response is of any use to you

i think the concept of having multiple works done at once is an awesome idea… i have somewhat adhd tendencies so the more that is going on the merrier… having said that however i am a creature of habit… it is seldom that i will have two pieces that correspond… so my take is that i usually finish one project before moving to another so as not to disturb the integrity of the next piece… but if you can handle multiple projects more power to ya… ^_^
