Pauly’s eye tattoo, plus before/after

Pauly Unstoppable just posted a new picture of his eyeball tattoo. Along with me, he’s one of a tiny handful of people with a partial eyeball tattoo. On the frightening day when Pauly, Josh, and myself sat with Howie debating who would be the first person in almost a hundred years to offer. Pauly, who already had extensive work by Howie, stepped up to be sacrificed to the mod gods first. This also meant that his eye was done with a traditional tattoo needle, rather than injection. Not long after doing it, we could see that most of the ink was coming right back out of the pinprick holes, and Pauly wasn’t going to be walking away with much of an eyeball tattoo that day. First to go under the needle definitely, but he would have to wait for a later encounter to add some more ink via the now-verified injection method. Unlike mine, which looks like a strange diseased lump, Pauly ended up with something that’s more like a flower or a purple cloud of troll fart gas depending on your point of view. Deceptively beautiful either way, and I think it is about five years old in this photo.

I wanted to add some trivia as well while I’m talking about Pauly. A while back one of Pauly Unstoppable’s fans had some well-meaning fun in Photoshop attempting to edit off his body modifications. There’s something a little strange about how it turned out, although it is a passable amateur shop-job. But there’s something about it that doesn’t feel right.

It’s not quite “cover-up makeup” or anything but Pauly just posted a picture of himself with a facial mudbath (deep cleansing blue corn mask to be specific) or in preparation for his job as a mime or something. I’m sharing it here for those who are curious as to the impact that the facial tattoos and piercings have on the aesthetic of his face. Unlike with the Photoshop job, it’s easier to hide his tattoos than his cheek scars!

  1. It was just a rush PS job. They lost the shape of the jaw and didn’t account for the mods moving tissue around the face. They lost some of his natural lines (dimples, laughlines, etc). This was clearly just done for fun so it ended up weird, but I’m now curious as to what some of my friends would look like if I spent some photoshop time with them. Now I’m thinking and most of the people I know that are heavily modified started pretty young, so I have no real concept of what a mod free adult version of them would look like. I’ll be in my lab…

  2. At first glance, i did not see much of an image. But i then started seeing an image of a loin head roaring towards the pupil. then i read it s more a blob really….Still would like the idea of it being a loin head.
