Wild Piercing Pictures I Found

Earlier when I was searching bing.com for a piercing topic I found lots of interesting piercing pictures. So I am just going to show and write about a few.

PiercingThis first one(left) may not have the thousands of facial piercings like Elaine Davidson but he still has a lot. Also, his are more evenly space so his face doesn’t appear to just be on large hole, no offense Elaine Davidson. Another thing I like about it is he is very consistent with his jewelry almost all rings except for two bars through the bridge of his nose. His ears remind me a janitor’s key ring though, but in a cool way.

This picture(right) I feel is a more pretty way to be heavily pierced. Like the first person she linesuses mostly one type of jewelry, but she differs in the way that it is mostly barbells and a few rings. Also, the fact that her piercings are in nice, pretty much clean lines makes it even better.

This last picture(below) is just wild. This person has their Achilles tendon pierced with a thick bar. So they have obviously had this done for a long time probably to work up to the thicker gauge. This piercing is very rare of course so if you ever are lucky enough to see a brave soul with it done, commend them, for me at least.

Tattoos for Smartasses

belly_button_tattooA smartass can make anything funny. They can even get smartass tattoos. Before they just used funny designs, now they have made their tattoos even more smartassy.

Normally tattoos on a persons belly are reserved for girls with tight stomachs, now people get tattoos around their belly buttons over the hole. The trick is to get belly_tattoo-243x300something like an animal turned around. So the bellybutton is becomes a butt of the tattoo. These clever tattoos are not just restricted to animals. A goofball could always get a tattoo of a person bent over. I also saw some of women lying on their backs spreading their legs. Guess what the belly button hole represents.

So if you’re a goofball looking for a funny tattoo let hope you don’t have an inee .

Eye Jewelry

eyeJewelryExtraocular Implants or Eye Jewelry Implants are a small, flat jewelry piece place in the eye and are is one of most recent body modifications.
This cosmetic implant got started in 2002 in the Netherlands and when installed properly will not affect any of the eye’s abilities.
The procedure can only legally be done in medical clinics with a few drops of anesthesia to make the eye stay still. Then the cornea is lifted up and the piece is placed underneath. This quick procedure is said to not be painful.
The jewelry is made from platinum alloys and comes in the shape of a heart, music, clover, or star. Other shapes can be custom ordered

Suspension

1175201991-suspensionSuspension is when hooks are temporarily pierced through a person’s skin and they are hung up voluntarily by said hooks.
People practice suspension for many different reasons. Some for spiritual purposes, others do it to feel like they are more than their body. Others enjoy the sensation, some suspend for the endorphins and adrenaline rush they get. Some do it just to try something new.
Many people practice suspension in groups. This sounds like a good idea instead of doing it alone or with just someone there to pierce you and hang you. In a group you can share the experience and be a bit safer for something that could be dangerous if done wrong.
The most common for of suspension is known as suicide suspension which is hooks pierced through the back. Other kinds have hooks going through the chest, torso, calves, elbows, knees, and face.
There are many risks involved with suspension and a person should also being not only physically prepared for suspension but mentally. If you are wishing to try this ritual you should research it on your own first and make sure you really want it and are not just going through a phase.

Day of the Dead Tattoos

051707_skull_tattooThe classic Sugar Skull tattoo is one with rich cultural history behind it. They are based on the decorative skulls made for the Mexican holiday Dias De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Day of the Dead is starts on November 1st and ends the next day.  Its purpose is to honor those close to one who have died. The decorative skulls are usually made from sugar, hence the name sugar skull, and are placed on an altar.Sugar-skull

The sugar skull tattoos are usually just as decorative as the skulls they are based on. They usually have designs inside the lines of the skull such as flowers, crosses spades, shapes, and hearts. Sometimes, they also have decorations on the outside such as flowers, usually marigolds or roses, a candle on the top of the head, hats, or veils. Some are just a skull, some are a normal face with sugar skull designs on it, and others have skeleton bodies. Some sugar skulls just have white backgrounds while others have colors.

nate beavers- sugar skull gallerySugar skulls made for day of the dead are said to bring good luck. Many people carry around small ones for good luck. I have a feeling, sugar skulls being lucky is why people started getting them as tattoos. Either way they make for beautiful tattoos that can be integrated with a lot of other tattoo elements such as flowers, hearts, and leaves.

Lip Stretching

079_OnoLipPlateEthiopia_gfHave you ever though your lip just wasn’t big enough? Thought to yourself, “my lip just needs to be much bigger,” if so you can follow the cool example set by pro body mod tribes and stretch your lip using clay or wooden plates.

I know what some of you may be thinking, this sounds completely erroneous, and why would someone do that? The tribes that practice this procedure find stretched lips to be very attractive. In some Amazonian tribes, young men get them done to signify adulthood. In other tribes women get them to signify that they are old enough to be a wife. But, they usually remove the plates after they are married.surma-lipplate

The procedure usually starts with a hole pierced in the labret and a small wooden peg inserted to act as a stud or starter jewelry piece. When the hole heals after a few weeks a disc usually about 4 centimeters in diameter is put in place. The discs are usually made by the person wearing them from clay or wood. Eventually a disc anywhere 8 to 16 centimeters in diameter is inserted and is usually the final disc.3039903103_4010ed7213_m

Most Common Groups to Stretch their Lips

  • African tribes
  • South American tribes
  • Surma and Mursi tribes in Ethiopia

Eyelid Piercing

eyelid_piercing5What is one of the most extreme facial piercings you can get, in my opinion an eyelid piercing? That’s right people pierce their eyelids.

Done of the side of the eyelid (inside or outside), the rare piercing is said not to be irritating to the eye. It looks very risky to your eyes, which are very important of course for sight. A captive bead ring is usually used. But a curved barbell can also be used. Of course make sure to find a piercer experienced in this piercing.eyelid_piercing

The morning after this piercing will be very red and it is very important to follow aftercare exactly due to the fragile state of the eye. Healing should take a few weeks.
