‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
‘You must be,’ said the Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.’

As someone with Alice in Wonderland tattoos, I’m a big fan of this tattoo by Alexander Yanitskiy of Kipod in Tel Aviv. I’m always impressed with the work I see coming out of this shop and this is no exception. They have a variety of artists working there and they all seem to be equally talented.

Wednesday Photo of the Day

A lot of times we get photo submissions of mods freshly done and while that’s always great, people often ask, what does it look like healed? Suzanne H sent in this photo of an implant done by Samppa Von Cyborg and she titled it, “Implant at 1 year”. It’s great to see how this looks at 1 year in. Thanks for the sharing Suzanne!

Casting Call: UK

Hello BME Community,
A popular UK primetime TV series is looking for modified people to take part. The series is about body modification desire and regret and looks at the multitude of ways we choose to alter our appearance.
This year we’re really keen to explore and celebrate some of the less well known body modifications by featuring people who are passionate about body modification and have chosen to change the way they look in exciting or striking ways. If you are UK based and planning on getting or seriously considering any of the following body mods:
· Subdermal Implants
· Tongue Split
· Tongue Tattoo
· Scleral Tattoo
· Scarification
And any other body modifications please email: [email protected] or send a private message to me on BME to BS_15.

Looking forward to hearing from you.


Happy Friday – Photo of the Day

Enjoy your weekend folks.  Sending you off is a submission from LeoDeFeo.  No information was provided about artists but we can just enjoy the view, can’t we?BME

I’m trying something new.  I’m calling it Photo of the Day.  I’m going to pick 1 photo from the BME submissions and highlight it here on ModBlog as the photo of the day.  This is not something I’m going to do every day and how often I do it is really going to depend on the quality of the photos submitted.  Please note that I said quality of the photo.  Think back to the old BME covers, if you’ve been around as long as I have, and you’ll probably get my meaning.  If I post your photo as the photo of the day I will reward you with extra BME access!  You can still submit to BME anonymously.  If you do that and your photo is featured just email me, [email protected], and let me know that was you and I’ll go in and credit your account.  The more information you provide with your submissions the better!   Allons-y!

If you read any news stories relating to body modification please do send them in. It’s hard to find everything that’s out there on my own and it seems like celebrity news dominates and while BME has always covered body modification in all its forms, including celebrity news, it would be nice to have some regular news stories to share as well.

There’s something in your eye

It’s hard to believe that it’s going on 11 years since Rachel and I took a trip to The Netherlands so she could have her jewel eye implant.  11 years!   Not too long ago I was actually thinking that it’s still not something I ever really hear about.  Well, yesterday bodmodpunky sent in the photo below:


Artist: Danny
Studio: Rock the Body Studio
Location: Baden CH

This looks really nice and I’d love to hear the reactions when people realize, hey, you’ve got a skull in your eye!  I’ll be honest, I tend to forget Rachel even has it, it’s such an unobtrusive thing and so far as I know she hasn’t had any issues with it.  I’m not suggesting everyone should run out and get this done, if you do decide to get it done, make sure you do your research and find someone who knows what they’re doing!
