Lots of people make resolutions to give up something for New Years. Smoking, drugs, drinking, eating bad; these are all common examples of things people resolve to give up year after year. The problem is, most people never follow through with these resolutions. Most people go back to their previous lifestyle, simply because they have that as an option.
BME members are generally a little less afraid of commitment. For instance, tattoos and large stretched piercings and other mod work are generally considered permanent. Sure you can have Chuck zap off your tattoos with that fancy laser beam of his, or you can have your stretched piercings sewn closed, but for the most part these mods are (and should be) considered permanent.
Then there is the more “extreme” side of our community. The guys (and gals) who do modifications that there is NO changing their mind on and going back to “normal” later. Take for instance this BME HARD contributor who has made the ultimate commitment.
