• Transforming your body through tattoos & piercings

    lizard_manFull body modification through tattooing and piercing is no new thing, just like playing slots at online casinos or paying with your phone is. It’s a growing trend, but the modern day pioneers of body modification are considered to be the late Dennis Avner, better known as Stalking Cat, Erik Sprague, aka The Lizardman, and, more recently, Jester Mayhone. These men have taken the idea of conceptual art and its relationship with the human body to a new level.

    On the 5th November 2012, Dennis Avner tragically cut short his own life, but left a legacy that has proved a true inspiration in the artistic and body transformation community. Stalking Cat, as the name suggests, dedicated himself to transforming his entire body so that he would resemble a female tiger. Tattooed almost from head to toe, Avner employed the services of body modification maverick Steve Haworth to rebuild his ears, lip, nose, and face to resemble a tiger, while his body was also transformed through extensive silicone work and customised teeth.

    o-STALKING-CAT-570Sprague, who has transformed his body by sharpening his teeth, having his entire body tattooed to resemble green scales, and created a bifurcated tongue, to name but a few body modifications, is another inspiration behind the latest wave of body modifiers. Avner and Sprague may be the father’s of modern day body modification, but Jester Mayhone certainly seems intent on carrying the torch. Jester is transforming his body, using tattoos, into that of a jester in full makeup and costume. Mayhone is intent on becoming a real life embodiment of his beliefs and artistic ideals.

  • Upcoming Trends in the Tattoo and Piercing World

    Now that tattoos and piercings have entered the American mainstream, hardcore body modification enthusiasts are looking for newer, more surprising, and more extreme ways to use their bodies as a canvas to express their individuality. Here are some of them:

    tumblr_m6p23zWqEd1rx3s17o1_500Eye Dyeing

    Eye dyeing, or eye tattooing, involves in injection of ink into the whites of the eyes. While this doesn’t allow for detailed, well-defined shapes, it does have undeniable shock value, especially when the entire white of the eye is colored. Ophthalmologists are understandably wary of this procedure and it is in fact illegal in at least one state already (Oklahoma). More are on their way, as this is considered far more dangerous than online gaming which is prohibited in most states (see microgamingonlinecasino.net)

    Skin Coloring

    Getting giant tattoos that cover an entire back, arm, or leg is getting more and more common. But normally these tattoos depict something meaningful to the person getting the tattoo. Using tattoo ink to essentially dye the skin a solid color across large portions of the body is an extreme twist on the large tattoo idea. Skin coloring is often used in connection with other body mods designed to make a human look like a creature such as a cat or lizard.

    Suspension Piercings820-med

    Piercing holes in the body that allow a person to be suspended by hooks is actually not a new idea. It can be traced back to ancient Native American rituals. But unlike their ancient counterparts, modern practitioners of suspension use healed piercings rather than fresh ones. The goal is similar: to have a spiritual experience.

    We still consider all of these body modifications weird today, but who’s to say what the future holds? Which ones will go the way of the tattoo and become mainstream?
