I know, I know, I have made only a handful of post and here I am posting yet ANOTHER implant by xpurex. The audacity of me!
Here’s the thing though, the lotus was amongst the coolest of all the recent submissions that Rob didn’t beat me to posting and this finger implant is so freaking rad I would be doing a disservice to the entire modblog readership if I neglected to post it.
I can not even fathom the amount of time he must have spent carving that teensy tiny silicone implant but as you can plainly see, it was well worth the effort! To get the skin to connect into that itty bitty little circle is an amazing triumph for both practitioner and client alike. Will these little finger implants be “the next big thing” in “extreme body mods” like the ear implants have become? Only time will tell, but I can definitely see a lot of people requesting these subtle little implants!
Sean: Steve Haworth makes and sells items just like this (if not identicle) cast, rather than hand carved.
Also there is no ‘skin connected’ in the fresh photo, it is simply pushed down to get that effect. Finger implants have been around for years (I believe Lunacobra’s finger implant work was featured on modblog a couple time).
They can hold a lot more risk than implants in other areas as the extremities of the body hold very little blood flow and the skin is very dense, meaning that the implant has a much higher chance of not showing up or scarring in the negative spaces more so than other areas.
If you want to get one of these done, I would suggest that you ask to see some after shots of the mod person’s work before you decide to get it done.
oooo I hope we get to see this again in a couple of months! Very cool.
