    So I don't know how many of us are out there, but there have to be a few! I'll define body modifications as stretched piercings/facial piercings, tattoos, scarification, plates, dermals, subdermals, and if I left something out, you're still in as far as I'm concerned.

    This is just for us to show what we have, share stories, our reasons, care techniques we've found to be most effective, whatever.

    I've got one "real" tattoo, in Hebrew that reads "vayar elohim ki-tov" which means "and God saw that it was good" around my right wrist, then a dot on the second knuckle of each fine on my left hand. Also, my lip is pierced and my ears are stretched. Right now they're at 2, and I plan on going to 19mm.

    What about you guys?

    (edit: also share what genre you play. I think that'd be interested to see. Pictures are welcome as well :))

    I started a thread very similar to this one years ago and the trend on TB is that you will be looked down upon by most members and they'll have no problem telling you that your decisions suck. However, there are a few enthusiates but they're pretty quiet ;)

    I'll contribute, though. I find body piercing to be very spiritual and I still have every single one that I ever got. My favourites are my 0g conches.

    Sleeved out, almost. Zero guages. Piercer/cook. I play metal in a female fronted melodic/metal outfit.

    Most of my right leg is covered, as is part of my upper left arm.

    Within all that I have a Ghostbusters tattoo and a Unicorn tattoo.

    Does selective non-facial shaving count?

    Define selective non-facial shaving? I'm not sure exactly what you mean.

    There should be a fairly large tattooing/modifications thread (or two) around somewhere :)

    I have my lip pierced. Haven't worn it in years. Used to have my tongue pierced, that closed up a long time ago.

    $50? Seriously?
    When I got my ear pierced in '83, it was like $5. Chick at the jewely store did it with a piercing gun.

    I hear those guns are far from being recommended.

    I got mine done $20 a hole at a tattoo parlor, but if you want to risk it and it's not beneath your manhood, Claire's does it for fifteen, but your only option is a set of wimpy silver 18g studs. My recommendation is definitely go to a tattoo parlor. They're generally cleaner and more experienced and you have a choice of the size you get pierced at. Just my two cents.
