Four dimensions of staples

I know you were told there would be no math, but sometimes the rules need to be broken.  To start, we turn to wikipedia for a quick definition of a tesseract.

In geometry, the tesseract, also called an 8-cell or regular octachoron or cubic prism, is the four-dimensional analog of the cube. The tesseract is to the cube as the cube is to the square. Just as the surface of the cube consists of 6 square faces, the hypersurface of the tesseract consists of 8 cubical cells. The tesseract is one of the six convex regular 4-polytopes.

A generalization of the cube to dimensions greater than three is called a “hypercube”, “n-cube” or “measure polytope”. The tesseract is the four-dimensional hypercube, or 4-cube.

So, now that you know a tesseract is a geometry term, and not a way to travel through space and time, you can appreciate the time and effort -light- put in to this flesh stapling play.

Now normally flesh staples are a type of piercing, but seeing as how this play piercing was done with a stapler and ribbon, I’ll let it slide.

  1. you think that you have seen every thing ,then you get shot down lol , never ever seen the like before, looks good. Nearest i have seen to this is a stitched closed vagina .

  2. Wow, thank’ for the feature!

    The stapling was carried out by Jack_Sparrow here in the UK, concept and design by Macconglinne based in LA California. All took about one hour to complete and longer to prepare. =) x

  3. gorgeous! I can’t even pretend to understand the maths in it.

    Although whenever I see or hear the word geometry it automatically associates with the short film/thing called “Solid Geometry” with Ewan McGregor in.

  4. Incredible. I’ve never seen a tesseract to equal it. Amazing work. I bow, not only to the artist, but to she who wears it as well. And I thought a simple tattoo would be enough.
