But there are some people out there determined to take body modification to terrifying new heights. When is it too much? When you do this to yourself:
We’ve all heard of saline injections, right? To achieve this look, technicians insert a needle into the forehead and inject a few hundred CC's of saline. An indentation is then placed in the middle to get the bagel effect. The procedure takes about two hours, and fortunately this form of body modification is only temporary.
Horn and Spikes
Horns and spikes made out of steel can be implanted to the skin. Many creative guys have found a way to wear these metal chips. Some are sporting a mohawk style, while some choose to have a simple pair of satanic horns. Surgeons say that there is a high risk of infection associated with such transdermal implants.
You know how snakes have split tongues? Tongue bifurcation, or tongue splitting, is a type of body modification where tongue is cut centrally from its tip partway toward the base, forking the end. Tongue splitting has been known to cause infection, nerve damage, numbness and loss of taste.
Corset piercing starts with the creation of piercings on either side of the spine. Once these heal, they can be laced with ribbons and pulled taut. It is quite painful, because the skin has to be pinched in order to push the needle through by hand. Also, it creates an open wound that you have to keep clean to prevent infection. This type of piercing isn’t usually permanent. It grows out after about four weeks, leaving painful, red scars up and down your back.
Subdermal implants are placed under the skin, which puffs to show the shape of implant, creating a raised and slightly terrifying resulting effect. These types of implants are considered more dangerous, with skin infections and allergic reactions are among the potential harms, along with pain and discomfort during and after the procedure.
Out of all gross and gawk-inducing body modification, this is one of the most dangerous of all. The sclera is the white of your eye, and it's not a good idea to inject ink into. the procedure was only invented in 2007, so no one knows what the long term effects are – like perhaps permanent blindness. Unlike other tattoos, sclera tattoos can never be reversed or covered up.
