Navel Removal

Take a close look at this photo and you’ll notice the total lack of a navel. It hasn’t been Photoshopped out — it’s been surgically removed… As will probably come as no surprise, this is via the always cutting edge Emilio Gonzalez of Venezuela, currently opening a new studio in Belgium.


As well as via IAM and Mithos Tattoo, you can contact him at [email protected] if you’re looking to have work done.

    I’m assuming it’s like when they re-locate a navel after a tummy-tuck…but in this case just toss it.
    Cool effect with the bio-mechanoid tatts. (Part machine with no need for a umbilical cord.)

    Looks neat! I get a suffocating feeling when I look at it/imagine having no belly button myself.

    totally cool.

  2. as a person that doesn’t really like nipple removal (maybe really doesn’t like is more appropriate) – i have to agree with cris.. would look awesome…

    look great already, though…

  3. It’s a little known fact that legendary film-maker Alfred Hitchcock had his navel surgically removed as well.

  4. Yeah I’m looking into it so I can get a big piece on my stomach.

    Doin a litle research atm about it.
