SURREAL BODY MODIFICATIONS
Added on: 8th Jun 2015
You probably know someone with a tattoo or maybe
even a piercing here or there, but we’re almost willing
to bet that you have probably never seen anything
like this. We dare you to look at these surreal
body modifications and not cringe.
A type of scarification, abrasion is a practice in which layers of
human skin are removed through abrasion. It can be done either
mechanically (e.g. using a sandpaper) or chemically
(by means of corrosive chemicals).
Pioneered in Canada and now practiced mainly in Japan, bagel head
is a body modification in which a saline is injected into a person´s
forehead, creating a temporary swelling distortion of the head that
resembles a bagel or a doughnut (hence the name).
A suspension is the act of suspending a human body via hooks
implanted through body piercing. There are several basic types of
suspension such as the coma suspension, the suicide suspension or
the superman suspension.
While most of us hate when something gets into our eye, there are
people out there who pay big money to have little decorative objects
implanted right into their eyeballs.
In the process of body scarification, scars are formed by cutting the
Skin by varying methods to purposely influence wound healing.
The resulting scars – usually designed in pictures or words – create
a permanent body modification.
Originating in 1994, subdermal implant is a method of body
modification in which little objects, usually made from silicon or
Teflon, are implanted under the skin, creating impressions upon the
skin. This process is also known as a 3-D implant, or pocketing.
While subdermal implants are completely burrowed under the skin,
transdermal implants are partially exposed. This type of body
modification is done through a process known as dermal punching.
Usually, body piercing involves puncturing a part of the human body
to create a discreet opening in which little to medium sized jewellery
may be worn. Nevertheless, some people have pushed this
practice to incorporate holes in very bizarre parts of the bodies
in order to wear even more bizarre objects.
