Pierced Wings Photoshoot

Speaking of Baz Black (Dundalk, Ireland), he also sent me these absolutely beautiful play piercing shots. They were taken at Red Tree Studios by Maik, with Baz having done the black wings on Suki Syndrome, and the white wings were done by Edel Walsh on Sara Tonin. It’s not uncommon to use feathers in play piercing photoshoots, but these stand out — I love the final tone of the images, they look almost like paintings, like the sort of thing I imagine hanging in some deviant Austrian art fan’s apartment at the start of the 20th century, perhaps next to their Klimt painting.

Guess What Plus Implants

I want to start off with a “guess what”… Click to see if you were right.


The mod you see in that picture is on Walker Bod Mod and was done by Oscar Kbza Santos. While I’m talking about Oscar, I wanted to show you his hand implants, because they’re a little unusual — unique would be a better word.


That reminds me that I’ve been meaning to show you Sandy from True Body Art, a beautiful looking studio in Zurich. Anyway, I spent some time looking at her hand implants, trying to figure out what they are — my first guess was some sort of I Ching symbol.


The truth more enigmatic and amusing — it’s actually a random shape devoid of specific meaning, and is there to confuse the viewer!!! This is especially funny because Sandy isn’t some strange troll that no one sees, or that when they do see, are afraid of them… She’s actually a very beautiful model in addition to being a body modification artist, so these unusual implants have been featured in the work of many photographers (the photo on the left is by Siete Ramirez, and the one on the right is by Dark-Style Fotografie), and I’m sure as a result a great deal of time has been spent pondering their meaning. She has an implant on her chest as well that is similarly strange. I always enjoy people who have a sense of humor.


Oh and you can click that picture for one last shot.

Beauty comes in all flavors

Personally I prefer the beauty of a modified person, but in no way do I think that’s what’s right for everyone. Beyond a few basic rules of aesthetics (and even they are debatable), this is a matter that is very much in the eye of the beholder. But one of the objective things I love about modified beauty is that it is self-actualized. It seizes control away from the biological lottery and the luck of who your ancestors are, and makes the transformative statement, “I will be whoever I choose to be”. That alone I find incredibly attractive… the idea that the beauty can arise from an act of will, a conscious dominance over fate.


On the left is Mary Jose Cristerna, and on the right is Martyna Wojciechowska. I must add that Martyna is plenty modified herself, although it’s not obvious in this particular photo, so everything I said above is true of her as well, if perhaps to a different degree.

Hot Damn

Nexizydrate is no stranger to being naked on ModBlog, although come to think of it, I don’t think she’s actually ever been fully naked.. until now.  You’ll have to read ahead to see the full images, or you can just head to the BMEGirls gallery to see them all.

Keep on reading to see the rest of this beautiful IAMer.

Remember, the BME Galleries always have the full sized images, so be sure visit them.

A touch of purple

Kim “Skin Seamstress” Hutchinson (IAM: zombieprincess) has a long history of appearances on ModBlog, and with good reason.  She’s a skilled piercer that often assists photographers and models through play piercings, corsets, etc.  This shoot in particular was of Laura’s first corset, with photography by Sally Anderson.  What I like about it is that it’s reminiscent of wedding photos, specifically the bride getting ready.  While I don’t know the specific reasons behind the shoot, I do know that the end result was some great photos of a beautiful woman.
