Happy Canada Day

I went searching through the archives of BME to find something to post for today.  This was submitted anonymously so, unfortunately, I can’t credit anyone but I thought it was fitting.

Getting Your Nails Done

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.

Giving directions just got way easier

 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.

By The Way…Hello!

I figure an introduction is in order!

My name is Coyote and I’m a new author for Modblog! You might remember me from These old Modblog entries, or as the old creator of the IAM: Bodies forum. I’m also a professional piercer of three years. My ultimate goal is to be a good torch carrier and continue the amazing legacy left by previous authors. Here is a bit more on why I wanted to write for Modblog.

This logo changed my life, just as it did for many of you reading this. I am 23 years old but when I first discovered BME and Modblog as a young teen it was earth shattering. At the time I wasn’t friends with anyone in the modification community and I lived in a small town in Pennsylvania. I never really thought  a place like BME  existed in my wildest dreams and probably learned more about myself in three hours of reading blog entries than I did the last three years of my life. Not everything posted was exactly my cup of tea but I understood the drive behind it. I learned that body modification encompasses a lot of different things, and I tried to be the best student I could.

After BME

I believe in BMEzine and in this community and I also believe Modblog is an invaluable resource for young people in similar situations as I was once in to learn and grow.  I feel that I am emotionally and spiritually obligated to contribute and give back what I have been given for so many years. One can only hope to be able to inspire the same sense of wonder and passion in someone that the previous contributors did for me.

 I’m extremely excited to be a part of Modblog, and I’d like to thank everyone for having me here!
