Some of you may remember five years ago when Lane had Brian Decker give his tattoo a boob job, which unfortunately came to an unpleasant demise. Amusingly this is a not uncommon gag, and I know a few other people with it as well. For example, I suspect after seeing Lane’s (although I don’t know that), my friend YK did his own breast implants on his tattoo, hand carving a piece of silicone and putting it in himself. Another friend shaped his tattoo into a more subtle form by injecting wax underneath it, and I suspect that as custom implants become more available, the art of mixing tattoos with implants will mature by leaps and bounds.
PS. Because I’m currently working on interviews, you may notice me posting some pictures that have already been featured some time ago in the main BME archives, as I run across things that also make an interesting ModBlog post.
While the vast majority of people choose the classic “horn” style forehead implant first made popular by The Enigma, there are an infinite number of ways horns and ridges can be applied to the skull. Some are very natural, some are aesthetically challenging, some are aggressive and hostile, others are alien and serene. I am definitely partial to this nice high set of ridges, a pair of triple half-beads, that Moscow body artist and implant maker Max Yampolskiy (FB/max.yampolskiy) created for his first “demon” client, photographed here at 23 days. They almost remind me of Swirly Wanx Sinatra’s ridges, but pushed much further up on the forehead, which gives them an appearance that works perfectly with the shape of the client’s face. They really look remarkably natural, as if he was born with them, which I think is a sign of aesthetic success.
In this second photo you can get a clearer view of the exact shape they’ve used.
Oh here is an implant that I must remember to show my daughter in the morning… What can I say about this implant? It’s real, and dangerous, and a lure for fools. And Francesca was such a fool when she went to Brian Decker (purebodyarts.com) to have him install this wonderful Deathly Hallows implant on top of her hand. For those of you who are either not Harry Potter fans, or who are and can’t get enough, I’ll repeat Xenophillius Lovegood’s explanation of the symbol,
“The Elder Wand,” he said, and he drew a straight vertical line on the parchment. “The Resurrection Stone,” he said, and he added a circle on top of the line. “The Cloak of Invisibility,” he finished, enclosing both line and circle in a triangle, to make the symbol that so intrigued Hermione. “Together,” he said, “the Deathly Hallows.”
I’ll always have a special place in my heart for this book, because it’s the first major piece of literature I read to my daughter, spending a huge amount of hours reading all seven books. Anyway, the implant is looking very nice at a year old.
Here’s a completely gratuitous shot of KeighlaNight showing off her newest modifications.
I know, I know, I have made only a handful of post and here I am posting yet ANOTHER implant by xpurex. The audacity of me!
Here’s the thing though, the lotus was amongst the coolest of all the recent submissions that Rob didn’t beat me to posting and this finger implant is so freaking rad I would be doing a disservice to the entire modblog readership if I neglected to post it.
I can not even fathom the amount of time he must have spent carving that teensy tiny silicone implant but as you can plainly see, it was well worth the effort! To get the skin to connect into that itty bitty little circle is an amazing triumph for both practitioner and client alike. Will these little finger implants be “the next big thing” in “extreme body mods” like the ear implants have become? Only time will tell, but I can definitely see a lot of people requesting these subtle little implants!
At this point in my life there are not too many “extreme body mods” that I actively consider getting. For instance, scarification doesn’t hold up well on me, transdermals had to be cut out of my head and eyeball tattooing simply freaks me the hell out. However, the one “extreme mod” I still could see myself getting is a new subdermal implant. I LOVE the little ear flat implants for instance. I am also planning on swapping out my old school titanium circular barbell implant in my hand for a newfangled silicone one of identical shape and size. My left had used to have a Titanium cbr until months later I caught a bad case of cellulitis in the hand, freaked out and cut that bastard out! Had I known then, what I know now I would have just taken some cephlex and bada bing, it would have been better. Anyhow, I am currently lasering off the tattoo on the hand and that has me thinking I’d like to do a detailed silicone implant on that hand then tattoo over it.
This lotus implant. done by the only man I’d trust to do such a thing on me personally, XPureX, has been under the skin for two years and looks absolutely awesome! It definitely has gotten my creative juices flowing and it has helped to respark my interest in getting a new one myself!

It’s been a really long time since we’ve had an x-ray photo of implants on ModBlog. This was sent in by Definesad, however no further information was given, so I don’t know who to credit for the implants. But we do get a pretty cool picture out of it, so it’s not a total loss.

It’s amazing how shadows can affect how we perceive a person’s face. Take a look at these two photos of Roman_hertz. In the first, the light above his head darkens the lower third of his face and his eyes, giving him a stoic look. As if he just stepped forward out of the darkness.
Now look at this second photo. From what I can tell, his facial expression hasn’t changed, but the angle of the light has. The stoicism from before has now been replaced by a look of longing. He wants to be in the light, as he has been in the darkness for so long. He’s also wary, as the light is new, and unfamiliar.
Of course it doesn’t hurt that he’s a good looking fellow, with a great assortment of transdermal and subdermal implants.

Ok, so maybe xFBx isn’t trying to hypnotize you with a cookie, but he is enjoying his magnetic implant that was done at First Blood in Sydney, Australia.
