I was checking out this gorgeous lobe scalpelling by Gabriele at Max Art in Italy — he’s taken a 30mm lobe and cut it up to 50mm, changing its shape quite a bit in the process — and it got me thinking again about a procedure that I’d really love to see someone do. The first three photos below are real, and show the level of abuse an ear can take and still heal beautifully — that third image was taken only a month later.
Anyway, as you know I am big on anything that fucks with natural morphology, so what I’m suggesting is taking the earlobe loop and cutting it where it connects to the head, and then relocating that attachment point farther down the neck, as far as it can be moved and still be comfortable — which is what the fourth picture illustrates with a quickie Photoshopping. I think it someone can show that this works in reality (and I’m quite certain it’s plausible), all sorts of fascinating things could be done. There are still more Pandora’s Boxes to be opened — I’ve been giving some thought to the “what’s next in body modification” and I think that in addition to live electronics being on the cusp of exploding, I think there are a lot of body artists who are technically proficient enough at this point to start getting much more adventurous in the type of body sculpting they offer.
I’m loving how well IAM:twostep’s piercings all work together. The fact that it all matches is just icing on the cake and him being a handsome devil doesn’t hurt either. I especially dig the big cartilage paired with the lobes.
May I present, IAM: AWalkingModification. This 6’1″ modified mom is all dressed up for the Mesa Tattoo Expo, showing off her wide array of piercings and tattoos, but also managing to colour co-ordinate her corset with both her dress and hair. Oh, and check out the jewelry she’s rocking in her ears.
The corset was done by Jessika from Urban Art Tattoo in Mesa/Tempe, AZ.
I love Jake‘s mustache. I also love the fact that those plugs you see in his ears are actually his removed nipples cast in resin. A while back we featured Jake’s nipple removal, that included a video of him making his plugs so be sure to check that out, so you can really appreciate the final product.
