Forget tattoos. They are too mainstream and were weird back in earlier. Think of tongue splitting, anal stretching, subdermal implants, lip plates, corset piercing, tooth filing and subincision as other types of body modification. Sound weird right? Well they are. Today, thousands of people are getting their bodies modified in all sorts of bizarre and unusual ways. In essence, a body modification is any procedure that deliberately changes your appearance. Crazy stuff that cool dudes practice can be quite terrifying and even jaw-dropping. Hard to believe ? Then look at some top weirdest body mods that will make you cringe –
EYE POPPING SKIN PEELING
This will probably make you vomit your innards out. Also called as Scarifications ,it involves permanently altering the skin by burning, scratching or etching words or pictures on it. Some guys are asking body modifiers to literally peel off their skin. They are paying big bucks to have someone brutally cut all the shapes they want on their skin. Once the cut is finished, they pull it off and endure the indescribable pain it gives them. Yes, you heard it right. It is the same as how you would peel an orange. And yes, some guys will do everything to get that bloody gory design on their body.
Don’t feel like smiling? Just give your teeth a lip window. This modification involves cutting a hole on your bottom lip and inserting a transparent substance for aesthetic reasons. The procedure starts as you would with an ear-piercing. After the lower lip is pierced, the hole is then stretched over a period of time. After it gets big enough, the clear plastic plug is inserted.Try it out if you want attention from everyone you meet. Weird!
Corset piercing involves piercing your back with laces to resemble a corset. It involves two symmetric rows of piercings that include as many piercings as you want. It appears to be the latest in the ‘body modification’ phenomenon, which has seen people going to extraordinary levels in a bid to stand out from the crowd.
HORNS AND SPIKES
Having horns and spikes can give you that badass look.Taking advantage of cosplays, so that you can wear headbands with horn and spikes may be cute. But to some horny fanatics, this will never satisfy them. Many creative guys have found a way to wear these metal chips.
This is the one form of extreme body modification I would ever considering having–elf ears. The process is also relatively straightforward and simply requires the top of the ear to be cut and reshaped into a point as it heals. I hope they follow all the elfin safety rules!
Yes,uvula piercing !! Quite weird. A uvula piercing is a body piercing through the uvula, the projection of the soft palate between the tonsils. This is a rare piercing. Bead or small rings are the most commonly seen jewellery in uvula piercings. If you are curious about the feeling every time they swallow, forget about it. It sure is uncomfortable. It is quite curious as to why, but what about the how? How do they get it all the way back there, anyway!
Tooth filing involves manually sharpening your teeth. Initially, teeth were once filed for spiritual purposes. Definitely this gives them a vampire look!!
“Bagelhead” is a form of extreme body modification that sees saline injected into the forehead causing swelling, after finally being pushed in the middle to form the shape of a bagel.
Is it sexier to have two tongues instead of one? Well, this modification involves cutting the tongue into two to end up with a tongue that resembles that of a snake. The most popular tongue splitting method includes cutting with a scalpel. Whatever thought you may have about people who do this, for sure, you are going to freak out when you see that forked tongue sticking out of a human’s mouth.
We’re not done with the eyes yet….SCARY EYEBALL TATTOOING
Out of all gross and quirky body modification, this is one of the most dangerous of all. Also called corneal tattooing, this modification involves tattooing the cornea. The main reason people undergo eyeball tattooing is to change the appearance of their eye cosmetically. Contact lenses are available, so why go for cornea tattoos?? For goodness sake, one should never mess with the only two peepers one will ever own.
You may find these body modifications horrifying and violent, but there is a growing subculture of individuals out there that truly seem to enjoy “pushing the envelope” and seeing what is possible. With all the advancements in technology, medicine, and science what does the future of body modification have in store for us..you never know!
