Body inflation is no new concept, and has been used in traditional medicine for many years to 'grow' extra skin or hair. However, this is the first time I have seen self-inflation emerge in body modification culture and the results are pretty radical.
The alien-type waiting rooms of the self inflation venue are glorious; this is, after all, the world of saline inflation. I expect, and hope, to see a lot more of it.
Implications - A mere matter of decades ago, tattoos were considered entirely taboo by the contemporaneous population. Today, however, those social mores have been abandoned and all forms of body modification have been deemed acceptable. Businesses that shy away from this extreme, new habit will find themselves alienated by the growing demographic of tattooed, pierced and otherwise modified people.
