Lips Sewn Shut

bloodlip5wo3There are many rituals in extreme body modification. The ritual of Lip Sewing is where a person has their lips stitched shut for a period of time.

First thoughts one might have include, “what,” “That’s crazy,” “why, that looks painful, how do they eat.” To answer the question of eating, it is done as a ritual not a permanent modification or piercing. It is classified sometimes as a “play piercing” which means not an everyday use piercing.

One use for having one’s lips sewn shut is for meditation purposes. With your lips sewn shut you lose the ability to talk, allowing you to focus on relaxation. It could also be 3543348401_a331571019done for aesthetic or plain old entertainment reasons.

Usually sutures are used in the procedure which is done loosely to allow air to pass through. Swelling is typical, but permanent scarring is rare with the quick healing holes.

On January 19th, 2002 nearly 60 detainees in an Australian immigrant camp sewed their lips shut in protest of the slow processing of their visas.

Pocketing

npoy-pocketingPocketing is when the bar of the jewelry is exposed instead of the ends of jewelry which are under the skin in “pockets”. It has been called the anti piercing by some.

It looks like a staple of some sort and has not been said to heal well. It is also very likely to reject. It has the success rate to normal surface piercings, which is insanely low.

The jewelry is a custom curved bar with smooth ends instead of balls on the end. It is very important that the bar is made correctly for where it is going or else it will not fit.

Impressive Transdermals

When varousing bing.com for cool piercing pictures I found this guy.  Some people might think oh my god, why would anyone do such a thing can do that. How could anyone get close to him? The way I see it, with all those transdermal he is being smart. Transdermal means a something the jewelry is under the skin but still exposed unlike subdermal implants which are completely under the skin and unexposed.

I doubt that anyone would try and get up in his face in a fight from the fear of being hit by his spikes. Women may be thinking how he could kiss anyone like that. Ladies, I myself find this quite attractive. I don’t know about the rest of you but I see how a girl could get in there to his lips without getting poked.

But, at the same time he does look almost like a sea lion. With the way the sea lions have those thick sharp looking whiskers. But of course sea lions look even friendlier than this guycAW0740a-18(Sea Lion)th4

Still, even after thinking of him as a sea creature I find something scarily attractive. All those transdermal spikes just scream commitment.

Bagel Implant Update

bagelheadsAs I already told you all in a recent post bagel injections, usually in ones forehead, are a saline injection. But I had not found much information on them beforehand. (original bagel implant post can be found here

These injections are very popular so far in the mod world of Japan. Also, the injection is only temporary lasting about 24 hours so for a more permanent bagel a person would have to get it bagel-headdone again and again. This could be annoying but good for someone who is not sure they want a permanent implant. A person could probably get a silicone implant in this shape.

There is a risk of infection and irritation, headache, discoloration of the skin where the injection is, and stretching of the skin.

Bagel Implant?!

bagelhead4Bagels are a delicious breakfast treat that can be enjoyed anytime. Not only are they delicious but they have that particular shape. The thick ring has now even been an inspiration to extreme me body modifications, particularly subdermal implants.

From what I have found out so far they are made from saline injected under the skins, thus classifying them as subdermal implants. They could also be saline injected into bags and placed under skin in desired implants. They can be in various sizes and their can be multiple “bagels” on a person.

I have not found out much on these implants but as I find more I will revise this post.

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.
