Tongue Piercings

November 27, 2006

I apologize for my lack of posts recently. WordPress has a strange affinity to logging me out all the time and I’m really getting fed up with it.

This entry is about the infamous tongue ring. This is one that I haven’t tried myself, and don’t plan to. It’s just one of those piercings that makes me shudder when I think of getting it done.

There are several different versions of the tongue ring, all of which look interesting (albeit creepy).

The Septum Piercing

November 17, 2006

The septum is a piercing that greatly interests me, as I have one of my own and I think it’s very unique and attractive on those who can pull it off.

I enjoyed this article on the septum piercing. The facts are straight-forward and accurate, and presented in a way everyone can understand.

Body Implants

Do you think that tattoos and piercings can be extreme?
Do some piercings make you cringe?
Check this out.

I’ve never seen anybody in person with this type of implant, but I’m sure many of you have seen the “Cat Man” on television. You know, the guy with solid tattoos on his skin, implants in his upper lip, and whiskers?

This is pretty much what he did to get that cat-muzzle look.

While I give kudos to these people for being different, I’m also sort of grossed out. I don’t find it at all attractive and I’m willing to bet it would be hard to find someone who does.

A New Use

October 31, 2006

I came across this news article and I was mildly disturbed.

This is a new use for tattoos that I’d never even considered, but I must admit it’s a good idea. However, I was shocked to read that a tattoo artist feared for his life.

Never did I think that tattoos would come into play in the war in Iraq!

Scarification is relatively unfamiliar to me and it’s not something I’d ever want to do. However, the subject is still extremely interesting.

National Geographic has a good web page that explains what scarification is, where it came from, and how it’s done, right here.

I think this would be so much more painful than getting a tattoo! I’d rather have a needle stuck into my skin than be branded like a cow. Nevertheless, it is unique and I respect that.
