Crucifixion Piercing… Crucifiction?

Ouch. Care of Gauge at Golden Eagle Tattoo in beatiful Santa Barbara, California. I assume it’s fresh in this photo — I don’t know how long it was kept for, but if I had to wager I’d say not long… While they have been done successfully and kept long term, it can’t be pleasant during the initial healing period.

    OUCH just doesnt seem to cover it. My hands are itching and just feeling weird just looking at this. Props for going for it.

    ow, the persons hand looks really really swollen too (which is understandable)

    Argh that’s so crazy. It looks awesome but I’d never do it. I’m thinking a hand piercing would be pretty vulnerable to infection?

    more vulnerable than your average non-hand piercing, anyway!

    or, he masturbates alot and that’s why he got the piercing. it might feel good after it’s fully healed and he can “use” it.

    It’s beautiful because it just looks so…unfeasable somehow, but something in my mind is saying ‘nerve damage!’

    If they managed to find a route through without losing sensation/use of the fingers they’re doing bloody well!

    That title has got me thrown off, Shannon – are you suggesting that this one isn’t real either? I have no idea if it is or not, so I’m depending on your assessment! :)

  2. ooh, awesome. now i want to see someone doin a suspension from those piercings… to see if christ really had them through his hands, or if it was impossible.

  3. I got the idea from a side show act in the 1920′s and 1930′s called Mortado the Human Fountain. He had his hands and his feet pierced and stretched out so that he could fit copper rods through them on a custom chair and shoot water through his hands and feet hence the name “Human Fountain”. Because of the high risk for infection due to the placement we only kept it in for about an hour. Just wanted to explain to all of you who care.

  4. Also I am good friends with the piercee and he says there is no nerve damage and aside from the initial swelling there was no problems what so ever. He actually said that his hand felt better after the swelling resided than it had in years.
