Long shot or not, you don’t see many visibly modified folks running for a political office. I’d like you all to meet James Harrison Nixon.
Who could say no to this face?
“James Harrison Nixon is a normal person that cares for his state. A average working man that truly stands for the people in his district as well as Georgia”
James is running for Georgia Senate District 30 right now. No matter what the outcome and no matter what your political affiliation might be it is really great to see someone pushing the limits of what it is “acceptable” for the heavily modified to accomplish.
I think James is quite brave for throwing himself into such a tough market and I’m here to give him two major thumbs up. Good luck dude!

Ushering in the long weekend (at least here in Canada) is a photo of a bloody good time, submitted by TheChristOff. The artist is Clairet Christophe from France.
What better way to usher in summer than with a photo of a beautiful girl in a BME shirt? Thanks to Kristie California for the photo.

Have a great weekend!
(This photo was submitted anonymously without any additional information but I thought it made a good send off into the weekend.)
Canada, like many countries, is constantly releasing new variations on its coins (maybe because it feels guilty for getting rid of the penny). One of the recent ones is a quarter depicting Shawnee Chief Tecumseh, a hero of the War of 1812 who allied with the British, successfully helping defend Canada against American invasion (successful for Canada, but not for Tecumseh, who died in battle). Caitlin got one of these coins at the grocery store today and showed it to me, and the first thing I noticed was that Tecumseh is wearing a big septum ring (as well as earrings) in his portrait, which I think is the first case of a non-ear piercing appearing on a Canadian coin (and probably the United States as well). Sorry it’s sort of a weird photo — this is the best I could do with my phone.
Pauly Unstoppable has been at the forefront of the “four nostril movement” since it’s very beginning. Wait… do we really live in a world so awesomely weird that we can really say there is such a thing? I think so! But the first thing I thought when I saw the latest picture of his ever-changing facial anatomy now featuring a 10g septril (using a 3/8″ Anatometal barbell with 10g 7/32 M&M beads anodized to a copper tone) is “can you imagine if he stretched that up to 1/2″ or larger!?” Can you imagine if he managed to create some bizarrely amazing pentanostril nose? I wouldn’t have to watch Star Trek any more to get my fill of aliens any more.
I think when it comes to Pauly, the words “constantly evolving” describe him very aptly… For well over a decade now he’s had a far-out-at-the-edges appearance, and more impressively, practically every six months he morphs to the next stage in his evolution, taking another step on this amazing journey. Here are a few pictures showing his most recent facial work.
Movember may be over for another year (thankfully – what can I say? Not a fan of facial hair) but that won’t stop csupakabra from donning this 20mm wooden mustache.
Those of you who are Christians and believe the Bible is the word of gawd, or who buy into the many “photos” of archeological dig sites showing it, there was a time when Andrew the Giant was known as Andre the Dwarf. Genesis chapter six begins (and you can look this up if you don’t believe me, I’m not pranking you),
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
But what you might not know is that the Archbishop of Canterbury, when doing the King James Bible edit, removed the next line, which reads, “And those giants, they were pierced, they were pierced with fucking giant rings.” Carl, an archeologist at the California Tattoo Company, theorizes that the ring he discovered on a recent excavation is a septum ring, but I know better. It’s not called a Prince Gibborim for nothing you know. Zoom in if you’d like, by the way.
If it were not for his very modern looking glasses, I might be doing my best right now to convince you that Peter Csirmaz got his piercings in the late 1800s or something. Unfortunately I’m just not that good at photoshopping… Zoom in if you can’t tell by the pixels.
Raph looks fantastic in this portrait by Stella Morais. It’s an incredible shot that really showcases Raphael’s collection of modification, including the newly added cheek piercings.
