We’re admittedly curious about the reaction you folks may have here. After we posted photos of Tye’s new knuckle tattoos, the old conversation about whether there’s a certain hierarchy of visible/”extreme” modification work that should be adhered to crept back up. (Tye, of course, has his ears pointed and a not insignificant amount of tattoo work, though we will admit these modifications were not perfectly visible in the attached photos.) Our Russian correspondent up top may be a good example of this conflict as well. Not only are medusa piercings stretched so large rare themselves, but it’s especially uncommon to see something like this ostensibly independent of any other major modifications. (There are, of course, marks and scars that indicate previous work.) We’re fans of it, aesthetically speaking, but, even more so than knuckle tattoos, this is a pretty dramatic standalone piece of work. A nice close-up, after the jump.
