Slap in the face…

Many of my friends have had there hearts broken as of late and they have been back stabbed by close friends it has happened to all of us at 1 point. Love is dangerous if you cant take a slap in the face you cant take a knife in the chest.

love is a weapon

no lies


If you leave the knife in my back for more then 24 hours I am keeping it.

Which one of these is for you?

  • brian

    I think they’re all for me! If you’re talking about favorites then I’d have to go with “no lies”, so raw.

  • Kelly

    Definitely Revenge. I recently found out my boyfriend was sleeping with my best friend, or should I say my ex boyfriend and ex best friend.

  • Rebekah

    No Lies.

    Yes, I’ve been stabbed in the back metaphorically, hmm, a handful of times. But we have to keep thinking some friendships/relationships were never meant to be.

  • GillianLyn

    I think revenge would be my weapon of choice. The you can see the tension in the hand that make that picture so connecting :) which one have you experienced?

  • Sadia

    These are all kinda disturbing, but also striking, and they make their points well. I think Revenge is the one for me, I can hold a grudge like no other and I’m usually behind the idea of getting back at someone if they’ve done me or someone I care about harm. Not the best quality, but oh well!

    I like your statement about the knife and keeping it.

    hmm not really fitting my mood this morning when I found out that the person I had been hired to fill in for the rest of the year came back. They were supposed to tell me yesterday :p I had Mother’s Day activity planned with the kids so I stayed and got that done before leaving. No half day jobs and I missed 2 days of work all ready because of the Nashville Flood some of our areas roads were bad and I’m sure some teachers live in Nashville and couldn’t get in. The flood put things in perspective at least I have a home to come back to and the possibility of more sub jobs.

    No Lies, definitely. I’ve been lied to many, many times over many, many things. Trusting people isn’t my strong suit anymore.

  • Carolina

    No lies.

  • Synne

    Wow! Tyler Shields, I really love your pictures! Not just theese, but almost every single one of the pictures you have published on your website. I honestly admire both you, and your talent. Love, Synne from Norway.


    Love, without doubt, can be the ultimate weapon and can cause the deepest wounds. I’ve been hurt many times (soft heart). Some say it builds character…others say it builds walls. I say it forges deeper understanding of oneself and others.

  • Liz from J’ville squared

    “No Lies” is definitely my favorite!! Makes it kind of hard to trust people when you’ve been lied to so many times, but I still give people the benefit of the doubt and hope they will be truthful with me.

    Love all of your work Ty. Keep making amazing works of art.

    holy shit man, that no lies pic is insane. i mean, they are all insane, but there’s something about that one.. i don’t know i can’t explain it. it looks like her tongue is really getting cut into, i don’t know it like its hard to look at but i can’t not look at it. i fuckin love it.

  • Kirsten

    Love is a weapon! I have been hurt too many times by it, but I always go back for more. I think it’s cause my dad used to beat me.

    Damn they all pretty crazy man, That’s how T money does it. You da real deal nah mean

  • Hugh


  • Sheila N

    I love all the subtle details in the “revenge” shot. The strands of blond hair, the amazing ring, the ultra amazing leggings. Top notch sir.

  • eugene

  • michelle

    “If you leave the knife in my back for more then 24 hours I am keeping it.”

    That’s a great line, Tyler.

  • PaintByLetters

    While I may keep the knife after 24 hrs., I won’t keep the secret. I need a photo to represent an unwillingness to be a party to my own stabbing.
    Great series, TS.

  • JayTravis

    “Love is a weapon”. At least, it sure seems that way when I make the mistake of allowing myself to look for it.

    That’s one of the reasons I like guns so much, Tyler. While some of their designs can be works of art, in the end guns are a tool. Love; now THAT is a weapon.

  • kat

    this post could not have had better timing! i have recently had my heart ripped out of my chest and the knife twisted into my back. not fun. but the only thing to do is move up and on.
    as for which of the photos is for me, it’s a toss up between, “no lies” and “revenge.” i myself do not see much point in spinning webs of lies. it always comes back to bite you in the ass. and revenge, i am all for it. not so much in the cruel sense. more so of enjoying the moment that certain individual realizes exactly what it was that they lost.
