Stephanie a tattoo artist at Dragon FX in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Tattooed a “Black Light” U.V. ink star using Chameleon Brand U.V. Ink on April a regular of the rave scene. April wanted to have the stars done on both legs eventually to attract attention during her intense dance routine while raving.
Brittany Jasper went in to see Lane Jensen to have him implant a “Micro Dermal Anchor” into her tragus. While doing the procedure Tayla and Lane Jensen noticed that she had naturally pointed “Elf” ears. Unlike the surgically altered pointed ear procedures that Brian has done in the past.
Not that I anticipate ModBlog winning because (and maybe I’m kidding myself) it’s just too weird for the mundanes, but it looks like we just got nominated (thanks!) for our first bloggy award. I guess if enough readers actually nominated ModBlog it could win, but I seriously do wonder if we’d be silently nixxed behind the scenes…
Note: I actually would be very happy if people voted for ModBlog, but please vote in legitimately if you do (ie. make real votes in other categories too).
I think that capo3433‘s Boltzmann equation tattoo is the geekiest tattoo I’ve posted in quite a long time (I’m assuming he understands it, but he says he’s not very good at math!). It’s done by Kimsu at Body Graphics in NJ. If you’re wondering, s = k log w is a measure of entropy in this case.
Pooner has some really amazing horror themed tattoos (check out his page if you’re an IAM member), including this zombie by Big Al at Smokin’ Guns in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
This piercing toy was made by Piercer Snoopy (you may remember the suspension toy he also made)… See also this long tongue and other ones.
I got an email recently about an art project by Laura Splan (a very interesting medical/body fine artist) that I thought was worth sharing here. This piece is a scarf knitted from surgical tubing, which is colored with — and I suppose alive to due to — the wearer’s own blood.
Piercer Snoopy from Mix Tattoo in Sao Paulo, Brasil sends in this suspension toy. I think it’s a one off but I’m not sure.
Speaking of cool modified people doing cool things, Rachel Larratt (as in the person who runs the business side of BME, as well as her own enterprises), is racing in this year’s La Carrera Panamericana, a 3000 km race across Mexico. She’s down there right now blogging the race (as well as plotting to dominate the first year of the Unlimited Class in her Lotus Elise) at www.mil0.com/blog — the sharp eyed will spot Coop and others you may know in her race/rally diary.
Since there are so many sites stealing ModBlog‘s RSS feed and reposting it as if it’s their own writing and images (it’s fine if you want to use the RSS feed in a reader, it’s just not OK to download this site and republish it elsewhere), rather than those of the BME community, let me do my injection of reminder that the URL for this site is:
If you don’t see BMEZINE.COM somewhere in URL, you’re reading this on a site that steals its content). Anyway, sorry about the interruption. Click the link if you’re on the wrong URL, otherwise the fun continues below.
