Bizarre body modification and plastic surgery

Should the doctors performing these changes be called into question or are they just giving the customer what they want so it is acceptable?

It's certainly not my cup of tea but I guess if that is what they really want.

Pretty bizarre.

On the other hand, I remember what my mother used to say about the Beatles, when they first hit the scene, and they just had an unusual haircut!

If someone wants to mutilate their body like that, let them do it. BUT they need to know the risks, consequences and if anything goes wrong later, then they should be banned for suing the person who did it to them!

It's their body and they can do what they want with it, so the doctors shouldn't be held accountable. BUT, I think the people who did that to themselves really need help.

I have no problem with a few piercings or a few tattooes. But when the sun reflects off so much metal in their face that it blinds me, that is just too much. A guy I work with is using those rings to stretch out his ear piercings and the holes are now the size of oreos. WHY???? He's 19 and in college for a business degree. What is he going to do when he starts going for job interviews?

As for the article, all of them were too wierd for me, but I really wonder how the person with the glasses gets a good nights sleep. Sleeping with glasses on isn't comfortable, and what happens when the perscription changes?

Ewe! They're all odd in my opinion, but that tongue one nearly made me throw up! *yuk*

I also clicked a link in the cat man one. Here is an article about him. He actually dates! So I guess it is true that there is someone out there for everyone!

So I guess there is still hope for me!

ive always found the ear plug thing gross and repulsive, i dont know why anyone can do it.....BUT just like they stretch them up tao that size, you can slowly reduce the size and the wholes will go back to a small size.

i have 8 gauge metal hoops in my ears, 8 gauge is a little thicker than what we normally put in our ears but its nothing extremely noticable, i am getting sick of them tho, im thinking about taking them out and going back to regular earrings.

so far i dont regret any of the piercings or the one tattoo that i have. the only piercing i have kept is my lip ring, and i downsized to a real tiny thin ring thats barely noticeable.

i want to get the back of my neck pierced but im scared!

True, people can do as they please with their own body, but doctors should take some responsibility to say "no" at some point. Attaching body art to a person's eyeball cannot be a healthy thing. I would think it would risk infection, and possibly blindness. It's irresponsible IMO.

Whatever happened to, "First do no harm"?

Why? I'm not judging you, but honestly why would you want to do that? I think some piercings do enhance a person. I have pierced ears, and I have friends that have pierced their eyebrows and tongues (I don't want to know why). But why the back of your neck?

It's your body and you can do what you want, but I'm really curious as to why you want to do that. Is it just because you can? Or does it mean something to you? Is it just supposed to just go through the skin, or does it have to go through muscle too?

The good thing with piercings is you can take them out and they will eventually close. As opposed to the elf ears or the snake tounge. That honestly just freaks me out. I guess the guy with the elf ears can get another surgery to make them look normal again, but I don't know if the snake tongue guy can.

I honestly didn't know the big holes in the ears can be slowly reduced. I figured once the hole was stretched that far it would stay that way. So, how long does it take for the earlobes that are almost touching his shoulders to shrink back to the normal size?

I don't have anything on my body pierced. I'm terrified of needles. I don't mind people having pierced ears, but beyond that - it kinda creeps me out.

I've always said "if God wanted more holes in your body, He would have put them there at birth"! I really object to ear piercing of babies!

I have to wonder what will happen to the forehead skin of the man who had the star shaped "horns" implanted under his skin.

He looks fairly young now and I have to think that when he gets older that he will not want them anymore. Won't he have little bags of skin where the implants were when he takes them out?

Completely bizarre. I can't think of any reason to have any of those things done to one's body (and the tongue one really did make me gag), but to each his own, I guess. And, therefore, on the whole, I'd say there's nothing wrong with a doctor performing the service, though I'd have to agree with Kelly that there should be a point past which the doctor would not go, and should be responsible for refusing to. The eye one would seem to fall into that category.

There was a documentry on here with those people on a while back.

It certainly doesn't float my boat, and although i always say each one to their own, i can't get help but wonder what they'll look like when their in their 60's or 70's

i want to get the back of my neck peirced simply because i like the way it looks. it only goes thru the skin, not the muscle.

im dont know how long it takes to downsize those big earlobes, i was just saying that cause i know people who did but never asked how long it took, im sure quite a while.

His "mate" may get a tad concerned should he get on back of her and bite her neck scruff...I'm sorry, I couldn't resist...

i hope u guys dont think any less of me cause i like piercings...im quite wierd but i bet you if we all hung out together we would have a blast!
post #17 of 21
I guess I'm in the minority here. I think it is irresponsible for a doctor to perform extreme cosmetic surgeries like we are seeing here without serious psychological testing first. IMO that also goes for multiple cosmetic surgeries.
post #18 of 21
All of those pictures are disgusting. I'm not sure the doctors should be held responsible though. They were paid to do it. I don't think it should be done, but it would be crossing the line of our rights and freedoms to not allow it.

Still... gross.

Body modification itself can be highly debatable. Some people like it, some don't. Some mod for religious reasons, some mod for personal.

No, I do not think the Dr.'s performing body mods should be questioned providing the customer is sober and of legal age of majority.

I am happy that people are seeing medical professionals to have their mods done. Too many people try to do these on their own, which is of course very very dangerous. Even certain piercings, such as the top of the ear (in the cartilage) when not done right can have serious damage. (such as deafness in this piercing)

Personally, I have my ears pierced (at one point 7 in one ear, 5 in the other... down to 2 in one, 1 in the other), tongue and one other piercing which I cannot say in public I'm more of a tattoo person and aside from the ears, my piercings were done for functional reasons. (people mod for functional, cosemetic or religious reasons, etc)

I saw a professional piercer for the non-ear piercings I would have it no other way.

Everyone has their own opinion as far as beauty goes....yes, some of the mods are gross and beg the question of why.... but I have respect for those who get their mods done professionally.

Bottom line towards the initial question: As long as the Dr. is NOT doing them on intoxicated or underage persons, I have no issue with them.

I agree completely.

Not always true. Once they reach a certain size I'm not sure they will ever go back. I stretched mine to a 2g (about the diameter of a bic pen) and had them that way for a few years. After I got married I decided to let them close back up. They look like they have and I can wear wire earings but not posts and when I feel them I can still feel the difference particularly in my right ear where it tore slightly during the stretching process. Also, when I wear heavy earrings, they seem to stretch out more easily.
