OM silently overpowers the chaos

My old friend James Keen has been on one of the wildest bumpiest body modification adventures over the last decade of just about anyone I know, and even though there have been periods where I’ve been worried about him, he’s kept his head over water, and in time has even become quite the swimmer. His latest piece suits his journey well, a big OM skin removal in the centre of his head, tearing away the deathly tattoos below, the calm unsound of the universe silently singing out over all the chaos below. It was done for him by Matt Vermillion.


PS. I don’t know everyone’s IAM names at this point, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that one of the other ModBlog writers can help me out with that aspect, or even that readers can add those links in the comments for now.

  1. Thanks Shannon so much! such amazing words. I became buddhist years ago and this is a very power symbol for me. :)

  2. Thank you, Shannon, for posting this the way you did. We’re missing the full perception of modifications right now. Everyone just wants to look at a picture and click “next.” This was very refreshing. Welcome back, friend.
