Apologies for the ICP lyric, but it’s been a while since we’ve had a story about magnetic implants I couldn’t help myself.
Rata, from Rata Body Art Studio in Buenos Aires, recently spent a couple of months working in Florida as a guest artist. On his last day in Florida, Pinhead and Johnny Vilonius decided to surprise him by giving him some magnetic implants as a parting gift. Rata has had his work featured on ModBlog before a couple of times, but I believe this marks the first time that he’s been the subject of the photo, not the artist behind the work featured.
Thanks to Johnny for sending in the photos. According to him the procedure only took 10 minutes, and he was on a plane back home the very next day. The first image is of Rata looking at his fingers, and the second is of Pinhead inserting the magnets.
You can check out the rest of the images in the discreet implants gallery.
