Fire in Chicago!

Friday night, dayo took me to a drum circle, and I got to spin fire!















I like this one, even though it's poi and not fire:





And finally, just because I had to: LOLFIRE!

I have to ask- is the kanji a tattoo, henna, or something else?

Regardless it's excellent, as is the area below it. ;-)

Like disarming a bomb.
Very carefully.

Lots and lots of practice...

The basic idea is you have two short chains with a burning wick on one end and and a handle on the other, and you swing the chains around. Doing this without setting yourself and te local wildlife on fire is the complicated part.
