21 Creepy Body Modifications

 - Sep 6, 2008
From Navy tattoos to plastic surgery, extreme body modification has come a long way. For body mod enthusiasts, their unadorned body is merely a blank canvas to cover with piercings, tattoos and surgical implants. The following 21 body mods aren’t for the faint of heart; most of them are actually quite bizarre.

In this cluster, you’ll see individuals who’ve turned their bare backs into corsets via surgery, who’ve covered their heads in steel pins, who’ve tattooed their eyelids to mimic the look of being awake even while they’re asleep. You’ll see tattoos on ears, teeth and even animals. These bizarre body mods are more than just fashion statements--they’re a semi-permanent way of life.
