Common Procedure but Clever Application

John Garcia of High Class Tattoo and Body Modification in Fresno, California has done something quite interesting for this client that is wearing a large black labret. Using microdermals and caps that closely match the look of the labret, he’s created a staggered series of mods running from lip to chin that are probably quite a head-scratcher for anyone that sees it that isn’t quite familiar with the way body modification works. The procedure in and of itself is nothing special, but the way he’s utilized it is very clever and has given the client a unique result that I’m sure he’s very happy with.


I wanted to show one other interesting application from the portfolio of John Garcia. Another client came to him with a large scar on his neck, and John pierced across it three times using surface bars with flat disc beads. I get a kick out of this because it’s again the sort of thing that plays head games with people who aren’t intimately acquainted with body piercing — and in this case, I see them assuming what they’re looking at was done for the client at a hospital as a part of saving his life (like pins holding together a broken limb), rather than a piercing.
