Ear Pointing!

Posted by Disha Singh on December 30, 2007
Ear Pointing

Ear pointing is also known as elf ear. It is a cool way of shaping your helix into an elf’s pointing ears.

There is no health secret behind this shaping and is mere a chic act of body modification. However, it is a procedure of removing small wedge of tissue from the tip of the ear, further suturing together the two edges which requires importantly the postoperative care.

According to :

The procedure itself means a very careful dissection of the structures at the upper pole of the earlobe. The required reshaping is achieved by modellation of a specially designed chondro-cutaneous flap (a flap containing the own cartilage and skin of the patient). The new shape is fixed by means of absorbable sutures, skin closure is made with unabsorbable uninterrupted sutures.

ModernPlasztika is Dr. Lajos Nagy’s clinic that deals in various types of surgeries and body modifications too.

Not Tattooing but Laser Fingernail Etching

Today, my friend Scott sent something amazing… You might have heard and seen of fingernail tattoos but now there is a new way to adorn you fingernails i.e. with Laser Engraving.

Yes, Martin and Bre showed their latest “new year project” of engraving fingernails on Make thus giving a new idea to the people.

They have shown process of laser etching on a video which seems to be pretty painful process but really is not. They have made use of 25W engraving laser to do the fingernail etching with the help of a computer controlled plotter-type device with their hand restrained inside it during the procedure.

They chose calender as their design and look forward to cut each growing month as it passes.

Mikey Sklar has an 8″ ruler tattooed on his right forearm. He uses it to measure everything from measuring PVC diameter to wire lengths as told on

He is in embedded hardware design and spend his time doing experimental building, transportation and energy these days, therefore, the tattoo gets used daily, he said.

Alan Dumond with body piercing and body carving

Alan Dumond of shows off his fresh super-cool scarification design of three lines near his left eye. The blue dot tattoo surrounded by these lines appears like a shooting star.

The cutting was done by Marea at Aesthetics in Indianapolis.

Moreover, you can’t think to miss his nostril and upper & lower labret. Lower labret wooden plug looks cool and what you can’t see here is his split tongue, septum piercing, cartilage plug, pierced and stretched ear.

Kat Von D at Guinness Book of World Records

Kat Von D makes her way into the Guinness Book of World Records for inking most tattoos in a 24 hours period.

On Friday noon she sat down for a contineous session of 24 hours to ink 400 tattoos at her High Voltage Tattoo parlor. Without food… without cigrette… and with just three breaks… she made the Guinness World Record for a cause as the money collected on the event will be donated to Vitamin Angels. The tattoos cost 20 bucks, and every 20 saved 80 kids from going blind. 400 x 80 = 32,000 kids, she said.

“During the entire 24 hour period, i never ate, and kept my consumptions of liquid to a bare minimum, to make sure i wouldnt have to stop tattooing to go to the bathroom at any point. i put on nicotine patches, so i wouldnt take any cigerette breaks. And during the entire 24 hours i took a maximum 3 breaks of no more than about 3 minutes, to drink an energy drink closer to the end, and to change into sweats at another point and stretch my hands which were starting to ache pretty fuckin bad.”

She also Apologized for inconvenience and Thanked all for being so supportive in realization of this record.

Scribble or Scientific Tattoo?

Scribble or Scientific Tattoo

Sometimes some tattoos leave a mark in your mind and I guess this will be one among them. However, there are three different tattoo designs among which one is something like wavelength and others put my doors open yet to recognize.

Rytch owner and a nine year experienced tattoo artist of Sith Tattoo, Norfolk, has inked this tattoo on the neck of this gal.

If you know what is on her neck, it’ll be of great help. This is a cry for knowledge which you can share by leaving a comment!


Kat Von D looking forward to set Guinness World Record

Kat Von D looking forward to set Guinness World Record

Kat Von D, 25, the head-strong tattooist, who few months back walked out of ‘Miami Ink’ to launch her own show, ‘LA Ink’, on TLC, is looking forward to set Guinness World Record, and she’s imploring anyone who’s interested to help her do it. She is aiming at doing 400 tattoos in 24 hours.

She said,

So, we have been talking about setting the record for the most tattoos done in a 24 hour period by one person, since the Miami Ink days, and FINALLY we are gonna do it, here, in Los Angeles, at my tattoo shop!

Yes, as Katherine Von Drachenberg a.k.a Kat Von D has always shown up as an ideal and adventurous female today, with this announcement at her blog on myspace she has proved it again.

As she has mentioned earlier the record making tattooing session will be held at her tattoo shop i.e. High Voltage Tattoo/LA Ink, 1259 N. La Brea Ave., W. Hollywood, CA 90038; on Friday i.e. 14th December at 12 noon and ends at the exact same time the following day.
As per the rules of Guinness Board, the size of the tattoo will not be less than 2.25 x 2 inches, it will have a minimum of two colors and people under the age of 18 cannot get tattooed, moreover, who are getting tattooed must carry their ID.

Thus, she is going to do an ‘LA’ logo tattoo in two colors – Black and Grey that is approved by Guinness on the people who wants to be part of this event.

Appointments are not required to be part of this event as Kat will tattoo on a first come, first serve basis and will charge $20 for each tattoo.

ALL PROCEEDS go to Vitamin Angels…an awesome group of people who help stop kids in Africa from going blind.

(Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization that provides supplements to developing countries and communities that are in dire nutritional need.)

The shop, which also serves as the setting for LA Ink, will be closed for regular walk-ins during the 24 hour record making session.

In August, Kat packed her bag to walk out of ‘Miami Ink’ due to the conflict with its Ami James. She was the only female artist/star in their show on the contrary in ‘LA Ink’ it is vice-versa as there is one male and all other females.

We Wish You Luck & Success Kat! 🙂


Cool Septum Piercing

Posted by Disha Singh on December 5, 2007
Septum Piercing

Now that is called true body modification freakiness. Dr Pangloss’s has got his labret, septum and earlobe pierced

The pen serving as the septum piercing jewelry caught my attention.

However, for some of yours curiosity I’ll tell you that septum piercing is performed in similar way like any other piercing with the needle. May for big holes dermal punches is used. Anyhow if you are not a chicken hearted person then you can also modify your body like this and be apart from the mob.

Dr Pangloss’s pierced at a 10g and has stretched it to 1/2″ since then.

Jeff Johnson of Newbury Park, CA, has updated his tattoo gallery with his fresh work of art.

His tattoos are incredible and I liked his Bio Organic face tattoo on an arm from his latest update. He said,

“I was given alot of artistic freedom with this piece so I had alot of fun with it. A crazy face with tubing and some geo light source.”

The tattoo was done roughly in eight hours.
