This artistic shot of a corset piercing was sent in by AlyssaChartrand. I like the old time feel of the photo contrasted with the tattoos and corset piercing. No information on artists or the photographer was given when the photo was submitted.

Spring is finally here though you wouldn’t know it where I live since the snowbanks are all over 6 feet high. This beautiful piece by Platon Sosnitsyi, from Kipod in Israel, makes me hopeful that we will actually see green around these parts again. I love the way that hummingbird pops and depth in the flowers. It makes me ache for some new ink. And for summer!
Don’t forget to submit your photos to BME! See more tattoos in the Tattoo Gallery.
Happy Friday folks. It’s my birthday and I’m giving you all a present in the form of the beautiful Jolie Suicide.

It is with deep sadness that BME announces the death of longtime member and friend Patrick Bartholomew, founder of London Piercing Clinic. Our most heartfelt condolences to all of his friends and family.
In a relatively short time, body modification seems to have not only grown, in terms of pushing boundaries but also in terms of mainstream attention, at least, that has been my observation. I can’t imagine some of the more extreme body modifications being covered in mainstream media (other than a purely negative piece) when I first discovered BME (however many years ago that was, shh, not telling).
Gelding sent me a link to an interview he did with Gawker. The interview itself is very professional and positive (I can’t speak for the comments). It’s refreshing to see this sort of extreme modification getting positive coverage from a more mainstream outlet.
