IAM launch delays and ETA…

Hey everyone, we just wanted to let you know what’s been happening with IAM over the weekend.  On Friday the site went live, however there were a couple of major issues that users found and it was taken down immediately.  Over the weekend Rachel has been working around the clock with the website guys to get the site up and running.  Yesterday the site was almost ready to go, however there were a couple of problems that needed to be dealt with.

We’re sorry for the lack of updates, but everyone has been working hard on getting it up and running and we haven’t had time to sit down to announce anything.  We’re hoping to have IAM up and running by later today, as we’re in the final stages of testing some of the new features now that the former problems have been fixed.  As it stands now, the site will either go up today with some of those features being added over the course of the week if the site is stable or we’ll have it up by Thursday with the features in place.  It all depends on what the developers can do with the site while it’s live.  I’ve been as anxious as everyone else to get back onto IAM, and Jen or I will try to get more updates for you over the course of the day.

I know it’s been a long wait, but from what I’ve seen it’s definitely worth it.

Again, we apologize for the delays in the launch, and we hope to have everything up and running within the next day.  Keep an eye on ModBlog for any further updates.

Oh, and here’s a fresh BME Logo tattoo that was sent in by Dspiercing.

Please note that you log in to IAM via the main page on BME, so if you visit an old IAM link and it redirects you to BME, that’s actually the right place. You need to log in there using your email address and password. Again, if you are having problems email [email protected] and please include your IAM name. Thanks! Jen

The yin and the yang, the hard ass and the sweetheart

Feet tattoos scare some people, not having them, but the act of getting them. Hand poked tattoos have that same effect. So when someone get’s a  hand poked foot tattoo, I think it’s safe to assume they are somewhat of a badass…….yet with the pink toenails all the sudden they seem sweet and approachable. So here’s a pair of bad ass, yet sweet and approachable feet tattooed by  Biran Wood of Self Made Studio in Asheboro, NC.


The BMEGirl Friday

With the new year I’m going to try to bring back the old tradition of a BME Boy or Girl post on Fridays.  That doesn’t mean they won’t pop up during the week, but for those that look forward to the Friday hotness, consider your requests fulfilled.

Today we’ve got a couple of pictures of Stembot, who can make standing around in a kitchen or laying on a couch so much more than a mundane activity.

The octopus in the above photo was done by Ross Trimmer from True Tattoo in Richmond, VA

There’s one more photo of Stem, but you’ll have to keep reading to check it out.

See what I mean?  She’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

There’s more photos of her in the BMEGirls gallery, as well as in several tattoo galleries.

Dear Santa…

I’ve been pretty good this year.  Much more so than last year when I ended up with a lump of coal in my stocking.  So for working really hard at being nice, can you please leave Madison under my tree.  I’ve attached a couple of pictures to this letter so you’ll know exactly which Madison it is.

The other picture might land her on the naughty list, so I hid it behind the clickthrough.

If you need more pictures Santa, you can look in the BMEGirls gallery, or the new skool tattoo gallery.  Oh, and if Mrs. Claus isn’t around, the female nipple piercing gallery probably has a couple more pictures as well.

I’ll make sure to leave out lots of cookies and soy milk for you.
