A tattooed bride-to-be is recently making waves in the news for the ‘preparations’ she's been undergoing before her big day. Although it's not actually the official wedding preparations, Kansas resident KimberLea Spencer is wasting no time modifying her body—which we're certain would look smashing on that wedding dress—in the mean time.

“I'm not going to have any confidence issues on my day.” And she knows it!

As expected, the older folks didn't appreciate it very much. “Other people, particularly older people, seem quite negative. Though they don't say anything they give me horrified looks.” Nor did her mom or grandmother. “But I like it,” KimberLea says. And we think that's really all that matters. And come on, check out that Triforce center piece!

As for the pain? The blooming bride-to-be responded the way anybody who ever experienced getting their skin cut off from their bodies would, “People ask if it hurt to have my skin removed and of course it did.”

She also compared the feeling to “being doused in acid,” referring to the stinging pain it left throughout the healing period.

“But I tried to focus on other things while it was being done. I listened to music and chatted to the other people in the room. Most of the pain came after, while my skin was healing,” she says. KimberLea made sure to wash the area every four hours for ten days to keep it clean.

Here's a blooming KimberLea a year prior to her scarification last year. “You only have one life and when I'm in my 80s I won't care what my skin looks like,” she affirms. “My goal is to cover my body with tattoos, piercings and more scar designs.”

And of course, this isn't the first time KimberLea did something out of the ordinary. Years ago, she used to participate in suspension—definitely not an activity of the faint-hearted!
