Scalp-Crown Demon Ridges

While the vast majority of people choose the classic “horn” style forehead implant first made popular by The Enigma, there are an infinite number of ways horns and ridges can be applied to the skull. Some are very natural, some are aesthetically challenging, some are aggressive and hostile, others are alien and serene. I am definitely partial to this nice high set of ridges, a pair of triple half-beads, that Moscow body artist and implant maker Max Yampolskiy (FB/max.yampolskiy) created for his first “demon” client, photographed here at 23 days. They almost remind me of Swirly Wanx Sinatra’s ridges, but pushed much further up on the forehead, which gives them an appearance that works perfectly with the shape of the client’s face. They really look remarkably natural, as if he was born with them, which I think is a sign of aesthetic success.

In this second photo you can get a clearer view of the exact shape they’ve used.

Facing Pain

Just a word of caution before getting into this post.  Facial suspensions are extremely dangerous, and have only been successfully attempted by two people, both of whom put in an extensive amount of research and training (we’re talking years) before even throwing the first hook.  They can easily lead to serious injury, death, or a cheesy John Travolta/Nic Cage film.

With all that said, let’s check in on what Supa and the Kaptive8 Suspension Krew have been up to…

The Only Difference is the Distance


Ahoy-hoy, ModBloggers! Hope your Saturday is treating you well. I’m just in and out at the moment, but I wanted to quickly share this gorgeous portrait of Dave‘s. It’s not of anyone in particular, but, as he explains:

I, like so many of our community members, have been totally fascinated with tribal cultures and their ideas of body art and beauty. In all simplicity this tattoo is my way of paying homage and showing people what body modification means to me and showing where my roots in this industry lay.

From a technical standpoint, I’m very curious to see how the huge amount of white holds up in the long term. I’ve got high hopes, though—I really love the look of this piece.

Enjoy your day, folks, and go on, gimme some fresh new eyes.

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but it’s up to you to merit the face you have at fifty 10mm/7mm nose tusks, 25mm septum and 53mm/25mm lips.

RAFALMAO

I was pretty close to wetting my pants giggling when I first watched this karaoke session that Rafa sent over. I especially love the occasional hair fixing!

If you’d like to sing along with him the lyrics (plus some screenshots) are below the video..

Lay your head down just for now
Space fills your mind and you dream awhile
The sun floods your room as you drown
Your lungs full of breathing
Your true love believe

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

Move let the stars suck you in
Hold tight, the night’s air and breathe again
Let go and be burnt by the moon
Your hands full of feeling your true love, Believe

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

I love you to death
Could you love me to death (x2)
Could you love me

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

One more time to say I love you always
and keeping faith letting love find a way

Letting love find a way (x3)
