body mod ahoy!

I know you tattoo peeps out there all secretly want to look like this



if you're going to have a big hole in your ear
, it might as well be useful, right?


stop with all that wimpy jewellery, already



if you were a real man about it..


more pics and stuff to read here, and remember kids, it's not how hard you pull, but how long

and ok, it's not giant squid (which we all love so much), but invasion of the giant jellyfish just has to be a movie waiting to happen

and here are some pretty pictures that don't involve people doing freaky shit to their face (it's rather sophisticated mathematics, instead)

the cellphone in the ear is actually sort of fascinating... i think the imagined pain of thing sticking through bodyparts is what sets me off about the larger items piercing skin, though.... can't fathom it on myself without cringing :(

i'm actually starting to be slightly fascinated by the idea of implants to the collarbones. *sigh*

the article on the sub-clavicle piercing was really interesting, thank you. i'm still really wary of the pain thing... i used to have a few of the more mundane piercings, and i heal like shit so after they kept getting reinfected (and this is with proper aftercare... i'm just terribly sensitive :-/ ) i had to take them all out, so i doubt i actually/realistically could handle anything that hardcore.

well, i'm extraordinarily healthy and have a lovely diet aside from the cooki and ice cream i'm going to be eating for dinner today. it seems that i react badly to the surgical steel. all things pierced with gold are fine, and they stuck. the things where they either didn't have gold or where the piercer wouldn't pierce with gold didn't work out. :( i loved the navel piercing and the ear cartilage stuff, but they never wanted to stay.

which means, I guess it's just lucky they have titanium cased phones :)

haha! i can totally see the commercial... yes, i do miss the navel piercing. i got it done twice, and it didn't work out, twice. :P

so that chick.. she's, like *snicker* horny, right?

from what I understand about body mods, the pain is part of the appeal, the actual look afterwards is almost secondary, almost.

also, with stretching, it's like braces on your teeth. Hurts a little, but not much. Of course, it's a very gradual thing. Start with a small hole, then add bigger rings, one at a time, over a long period of time.

So, the lesson is: if you got a party, and someone offers to stick a cellphone in your ear? Just say no.

that's funny... i get all cringey about the pain, and of course that's the point of the whole deal. ah, well.

hahaha! well, my own phone is definitely too big... perhaps one of those new 'razr' ones? they are slim of design, and perhaps wouldn't cause quite so much pain...
notabouthim From: notabouthim Date: January 19th, 2006 04:56 pm (UTC) (link)
I thought Razors were designed to cause pain, particularly when shoved into one's ears (you've seen Reservoir Dogs, right?) :)
dragonvyxn From: dragonvyxn Date: January 19th, 2006 05:01 pm (UTC) (link)
aww, nice one. yeah, i've seen it... actually, reservoir dogs is among 'movies miki can never see again' due to too much violence. american history x, apocalypse now and a few other 'classics' are also on that list. the resultant bad dreams were too much to deal with.

which is exactly the reason I don't watch horror movies. Don't need that much ugliness in my head. :/
dragonvyxn From: dragonvyxn Date: January 19th, 2006 05:13 pm (UTC) (link)
yes... i really can't handle it. i have never watched any horror movies, and i never will.

i love jellyfish. they have an amazing exhibit of them (lots of which are bioluminescent) at the Monteray Bay Aquarium
