Here’s a photo submitted to our Surgical Gallery, click through to see the unedited photo. Don’t feel bad if for a split second you didn’t think this was edited…this is BME after all. Needless to say its NSFW after the jump.
Welcome to Industry Insider! This is a new Modblog series that will feature brief interviews from some fantastic body modification professionals across the world. We get a peek at the state of the community and what it’s like to work in the best industry around!
I know Richard from various professional piercing forums where he is usually the voice of unfiltered reason. Love him or hate him, you cant argue that he is becoming one of the more recognizable faces in the body modification community. Richard took the time to sit down and talk to me about the modification industry and community as a whole. We get the state of the community address straight from a man who is right at the heart of it.

I ran across Pahakaksonen’s nail bed tattoo in the gallery today and it got me thinking that although we’ve talked about nail bed tattoos before I don’t know that I’ve ever seen one where the nail has fully regrown.
I would imagine that healing a missing fingernail isn’t the easiest thing in the world, so the fact that more ink didn’t fall out of this is pretty neat. I can clearly tell what it is, and I wonder if it will hold up as well (or better) than a conventional tattoo.

I really dig how well Mirka X Mythra‘s piercings are paired up! I’ve always liked projects where an untrained eye might not know where one piece of jewelry begins and another ends. Everything gets pulled off really well without seeming cluttered.
In this new Modblog piece we will be featuring artist portfolios that have been uploaded to any of the the Awesome BME Portfolio Galleries! Our small way of saying thank you to all of the talented artists who submit their work to BME.
This time we’re taking a look at Karla “Pinky” Grimes! Shes a professional piercer at Pinky’s Piercings in Champaign, IL. Click through to see some select portfolio pieces and be sure to check out her personal BME gallery!
There has been a bit of controversy the last few days over a few statements from NBC reporter Curt Autry.
Happy Thanksgiving to our United States readers!

This photo submitted by Lee Wagstaff strikes a chord with me. I think full length mirrors for modified folks are a double edge sword. You could either be admiring how far you’ve come on your journey, or lamenting over how far you still have to go.
You can see a more of Lee’s awesome photos and plenty of others in the BME Gallery section!
Thanks to our buddy wyrd for submitting this photo of his stomach cutting! Always nice to see the dedicated BME lifers out there!
This also reminds me why I’ve always liked the look of slightly “weathered” looking black work tattoos after reading this old post. A little texture really makes things feel organic sometimes.
