Horns on The Sleepy CatsBODY MODIFICATION IMPLANTS

Anyone can get it done, and it’s changing the appearance of man and woman kind! It’s becoming more and more popular as we try to assert our individuality from one another! BODY MODIFICATION IMPLANTS ( In body modification, an implant is a device placed under the human skin for decorative purposes. Such implants may be subdermal or transdermal. In the context of body modification, some may consider injections of silicone and other substances a type of implant as well) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. There are several types of implants the ones we are talking about today are SUB-DERMAL. Sub-Dermal Implants are objects placed in a pocket completely under the skin as a form of Body Art.

 

 

A friend's implants.The implant is a foreign object usually made from Teflon or Silicone. However in theory any biocompatible material can be used, such as steel, titanium, and alloys of the two. You could also use synthetic material such as teflon, silicone, and nylon. In some cases even coral has been used, although organic materials that can break down in the body are generally avoided.

As with the “horned” man pictured above these implants can be stretched slowly and over time. To do so you start with a normal implant and after it has healed you repeatedly reimplant slightly larger objects until desired size is reached. This can take time and must be done gradually to prevent severe scarring both internally and externally if the implant rips through the skin.

Subdermal implants are usually implanted using a pseudo-surgical technique, which basically consist of using a scalpel to make a single incision and then a dermal separator that slides under the skin like a small spatula to create a pocket for insertion of the implant. Once the object is implanted it only takes a few sutures to close it, or suture tape even. This procedure can be done by either a Body Modification Specialist or a Medical Professional, just make sure you only let someone work on you who has experience and is a professional!

While  Subdermal Implants is a basic procedure there are always risk associated in these situations!

Some risk of dermal implants include:
* Infection
* Tissue Resorption
* Implant Surface Contamination
* Implant Biocompatibility
* Nerve and Muscle Pressure
* Allergies
* Migration
* Implant Rejection
* Implant Subdermal Shifting

While most of these risk  are unusual and rarely happen, a few are common. Migration for instance is to be expected, however it can be minimized with proper care. By using a pressure bandage for a few days and not sleeping om the implant you can greatly reduce the risk of suffering major migration, but may still experience a slight migration. As far as healing goes it’s generally worry free, as long as you take care and maintain a healthy immune system  you just need to eat healthy and rest.

Personally this type of Body Modification has a very appealing side, it gives you the opportunity to change your appearance or accentuate certain parts of your body! While maybe not for everyone it is definitely becoming more mainstream!

Flesh Suspension, Body Piercing, & Body Modification

A tisket a tasket, 4 bricks in the basketA relatively limited Art related to the Body Piercing industry is on its way to becoming much more popular and possibly even “main stream” in the near future. It is “Suspension”. This is accomplished when several body piercings are made in the body using Fish Hooks. Yes! we really do use Stainless Steel Fish Hooks with the barb ground down.

Do not go and pick up just any fish hook as they need to be the correct gauge to hold the weight of a human body, and they need to be Stainless Steel. We are considering adding them to our line in the near future if there is enough requests for them. There are only 2 particular hooks that are being used, and I think those fishing tackle companies probably just think that there has been a real population boom in the large Salmon :-) .

When all the piercings are complete and hooks inserted into the proper locations, then you are attached to ropes or cables that go to several different pulley’s which are used to lift you and “Suspend” you by these hooks. Sounds daring huh? Then later you can insert regular body jewelry to the piercings if you like, you do not keep the hooks in.
In a San Jose tattoo parlor, Mr Falkner who is considered the “Father of Modern Suspension,” had a class teaching just this. He took 15 different people from all lifestyles which varied from a lawyer from San Diego, an IT guy from Silicon Valley, two journalists from Mexico City, a state employee from Nebraska and a truck driver from Pennsylvania. In these classes they learned how to pierce skin, rig pulleys and clean wounds. On the final day after class they got the chance to practice their new skills on each other.
