So here is the scoop! We have three of our OG BME folks, Sean Philips, Rianne Philips and Jareb Foosh along with two others have entered into a 12 week long weight loss challenge.
Here at BME we love to see modified folks succeed and being that losing weight is potentially one of the most noticeable and physically demanding modifications you can make…lets help them out!
Also, they may be on fire.
Their very first mini-chalenge is to get the most votes on their picture, team name and biography. Please help them out by voting! The voting system uses your Facebook account to verify who you are and make sure you aren’t voting more than once. Their team name is “Unrepentant Thinners” and you can vote for them by following this link.
Can’t thank chasethebeard enough for submitting this! I’m always a fan of scars over black but this really looks amazing!

This seems to be a cover up, and a hell of a way to cover something in my opinion! Solid black over existing tattoos sometimes will leave you with a “ghost” of the covered tattoo where you can see the lines underneath. The scars here really do wonders to break up an outline!
Call me soft but fingernail and toenail modification is one of the few things I just cant get desensitized to. These were uploaded by MAX! in 2009 and if you’re still out there MAX! We’d love to see a follow up!
I think you know where this is going.

I’m not sure if Thunvall chopped his luscious locks off for this photo but it is still an interesting juxtaposition from one side to the other.
Either way I like the put together look and you know I’m a sucker for nice paired piercings! It might not seem like a huge body modification but I know from experience that chopping long hair off can feel as significant as a tattoo or piercing if not more.
Long shot or not, you don’t see many visibly modified folks running for a political office. I’d like you all to meet James Harrison Nixon.
Who could say no to this face?
“James Harrison Nixon is a normal person that cares for his state. A average working man that truly stands for the people in his district as well as Georgia”
James is running for Georgia Senate District 30 right now. No matter what the outcome and no matter what your political affiliation might be it is really great to see someone pushing the limits of what it is “acceptable” for the heavily modified to accomplish.
I think James is quite brave for throwing himself into such a tough market and I’m here to give him two major thumbs up. Good luck dude!

I dig modifymeforever‘s teeth bling! Even Paul Wall would be jealous.

Polareyez was kind enough to submit this photo of their four day old solar brand.
Now this photo hits home for me because back in 2008 when I was but a mere 17 years old, My best pal and I were featured on ModBlog by Shannon. Here’s the link to the original post. When you get done cracking up at my baby face, you’ll notice that we’re also branding triangles on each other. Believe it or not that was one of the more significant modifications in my life. The triangle symbolized my friend and I taking in another friend on a special night. The branding was highly ritualized and we took the photos specifically to share with BME. It was a really important bonding experience with one of my best friends that we’ll always remember. I actually remember the day I saw it on ModBlog thinking that it was the most significant day of my life, and that I belonged to this community.
I’m sharing this little story with you because while this is not the most intense, extreme, eye catching, or conventionally “beautiful” piece of scarification…you can never tell the weight that something so simple can carry. My little triangle changed my entire life, and you can’t even see it today. In life you never seem to know when your turning points will be, but the thing that I love about this community is that you always have a reminder of where you’ve been.
We hope your New Year’s Eve celebrations were enjoyable no matter what you did. 2013 was full of a lot of bumps and some deep losses. As we continue to heal our hearts, we want to wish you a wonderful 2014.

While snooping around the Very Unusual Piercings I found this photo which is…very unusual. A double navel piercing uploaded by SaintMary in 2004 that is a bit more interesting than it might sound.
Two is better than one.
Now since this is an older photo (2004 is so ancient right?) if this has been covered before I apologize and give you permission to yell at me in the comments. Click through to see the closeup!
