The Most Extreme Body Modification

Tattoo and piercing are kind of body modification. And we heard about those very often, from small tattoo until the art tattoo. And the ear piercing until the extreme piercing in mouth, breast, vagina until penis. But have you ever heard about the most extreme body modification. This is the most extreme human body modification had ever done.

Subdermal Implan

Kind of Jewelry was placed under the skin. Allowing the body to poke the implant and create designs on the skin. Many people want to create together with different type. It has shown the dramatic effect. This process is also known as 3-D implant. It looks scary for me.


Tongue Splitting

Do you want cut your tongue into two parts? It looks frightening. This is like snake's tongue. I think we need some courage. While doing this it must hurt. As a normal person, just looking at the picture below make me sick, right!



Branding is the process to provide symbols, decorations or signs, or even a pattern to the human body. It should be done with direct burn to the skin. I think it will hurt. I don't know why the people doing this. The effect will become permanent mark on the skin.


Earlove Stretching

It is like piercing in the ears. But it was totally different with piercing. This is a process to enlarge the earlobe with pieces of jewelry. Most of people only stretched their earlobes about 0.25 inches. But there are many extreme earlove stretching we can find out there. Please enjoy the picture below.


Skin-Cut Tattoo

The most extreme tattoo I had ever seen. The tattoo is made by cutting your skin. You will get a red tattoo marks. It looks hurt also. People think this is kind of art. But for me.....thanks. I wouldn't do that. Even I will get alot of money from this action. It's really extreme!


Corneal Tattoo

This is the most extreme tattoo part two. This tattoo is usually used for cosmetic surgery for the blind person. It can be done by the common hypodermic needle. The process is the color pigment is injected into your eye. I am grateful with my eyes color. I don't want to change it in other color. It really weird!

Extraocular Implant

Where is the jewelry usually placed? It usually placed in the neck, ear, wrist or finger. How if the small jewelry or trinkets placed on the eyes? The process is cutting the layer surface of the eyes. Keep the eyes still opened. And the end process is put the trinkets into the eyes. I think this is crazy idea. Look at the picture below


Pierced Glasses

We usually know that jewelry or kind of metal is become material in piercing. It was totally different with James Sooy dan Oliver Gibson. He is the first person who applied this piercing technique. Glasses inserted into the nose. Please look the picture below.

Tooth Filing

re not satisfied with your teeth shape. Try this technique to change the teeth shape in extreme way. You want be like a vampire with sharp teeth. But, there is a cultural tradition in Bali Island to cut the teeth. The ritual is called Metatah also was held when a child growing up or before they get married and to eliminate the bad side of human. Like the picture below.


Why people take this way? There is another purpose behind those people. If we think twice what they did was kind of hurting their self. Better to stay away with these actions. We still give respect to them, because they have rights. Give your opinion about this. Have you ever meet kind of this people? I invite you to comment.

Hi, Ted. Good to see you here. Thanks for coming and share your opinion about this topic. Everyone has right to do something for their self, including extreme body modification. I just want to share the fact that there's something weird happened outside. We should to know these as knowledge. So we have choice or decision to do this or not. Personally, I wouldn't do it. Take care and enjoy your day!


Ted on March 18, 2012:

I find that it is always exciting to be able to shape your body into what you wish it would look like. I think that is what drives a lot of people to go through these procedures. The problem is that these procedures are often dangerous business; things can go wrong, you can incur into permanent damage, and you may actually weaken yourself by doing so. I respect their decision, they are the ones paying the consequences. But I wouldn't do it because I am comfortable with what I have, and I am more afraid of losing or damaging it.

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on December 29, 2011:

Thanks, Taylor for your big appreciation to this topic. But I hope we can learn about something "weird" happened outside for those people who did this. Take care!

Taylor on December 28, 2011:

I'm afraid of pain like the normal person, but what is so horribly weird about any of this? Shaving gives you razor burn. Many people diet until they are unhealthy. We spend all of our time and money on beauty. What's so different about what these people are doing?

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on February 28, 2011:

Thanks, calliemorris for dropping by and give your vote to this hub. I am glad to see you again. You have good opinion about this topic. Some people may thought these all were extreme, but maybe some of them thought there's nothing special with those people. Personally, I still looks these as the most extreme modification. They hurt themselves. God bless you!

Love and peace,

calliemorris from London on February 28, 2011:

Hey Prasetio, some of those pictures made me feel a bit sick... The eye tattoo in particular - thats just frightening! Also with the skin-cut tattoo - the top picture looked like some sort of massacre whereas the bottom picture actually did look quite like art... Maybe it all just depends on how extreme you go... Voted up and interesting hub! Thanks!

-_- on February 11, 2011:

i also have gauges and know many people who do its actually quite common and can be seen as quite attractive

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on January 13, 2011:

Thanks, Saku Filth for coming to this hub and share your opinion about this topic. Personally, anything inside this hub were extreme and I will never do this in my life. Just enough with I am now. Nice to see you here. Take care!


Saku Filth on January 13, 2011:

It's great to have your own opinion, commenters, but saying people do these things because they are crazy or have a problem is disgusting. They do it because they find it beautiful.

I wouldn't go for all of those, personally. I'm surprised lobe stretching is up there. Surely corset piercings and prince alberts are more extreme?

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on November 23, 2010:

Thanks, Teagen for coming to this hub. I hope you entertained with all information here.

Teagen on November 22, 2010:

Earlobe stretching is not uncommon and Actually not very painful if done correctly. I would know I have 1 inch gauges...

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on October 29, 2010:

Good afternoon, SpHiNx. Welcome to this hub and thanks for share your thought about this topic. I know it looks radical to do, for my self. But again I really appreciate your comment. You free to speak up what do you think about what happen with these people. I agree with you that they do this for many reason. Maybe I don't know their reason to modify their body. Nice to see you here. You always accpeted in all my hubs.

SpHiNx on October 29, 2010:

Despite your apparent fascination, the examples you have chosen are not even particularly extreme when considered within the body modification community as a whole. Also, you seem to misunderstand the modifications you are describing, not only practically,but in principal. People who modify their bodies do it for many reasons, not just to gross you out. Most moders find it beautiful, liberating, and a satisfying form of self expression.

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on July 30, 2010:

Good morning, Nell. Thanks for pay attention to this hub. Although I wrote this information, but I am scary to do all these things. Good question from you. They are unique people. Sometimes they want felt different with others and the other side they want to get many attention from public. But when it comes from cultural tradition, we can't deny it. I think I don't want to be different by doing all these things. Thanks for rate this Up.


Nell Rose from England on July 30, 2010:

Hi, prasetio, I love your hubs about amazing and different things, but this one has to be the most bizarre! lol I have heard and seen quite a few of these before but not the body cutting or the glasses implants! why would anybody do this? horrible! lol thanks for such a great and interesting if yucky hub! rated up cheers nell

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on July 24, 2010:

Thanks, Simple Tim. I know all this information contain with something frightening about body modification. For me personally, I am afraid to try one of these body modification. I am satisfied only for posting this hub. Good to see you again.

Simple Tim on July 24, 2010:

Awesomely scary!Thanks for enlightening us prasetio30. Subdermal Implants and Tongue spiltting are the most hair raising! Pierced glasses on the other hand is just ridiculous and impracticle. Wearing glasses must be uncomfirtable enough - being able to remove them must feel good...having two implants on your face forever well... thats just ridiculous!Surely we could put the use of surgical talent and medical supplies to better use like fighting disease and prolonging human life rather than changing the already perfect proportions of the human body.

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on April 18, 2010:

Thanks Granny's House for coming to this hub. That's why their work so extreme. I hope you like the information. But I am not suggest you to follow their steps.

Granny's House from Older and Hopefully Wiser Time on April 17, 2010:

Wow! that is nuts. I wonder who hires these people to work for them. lol

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on March 03, 2010:

Thanks KillMeCutie for visiting this hub and give nice comment. I liked to post anything including piercing. I don't want to get pierce in my body. Just for write is enough for me. I am glad you have one. Thanks

KillMeCutie on March 02, 2010:

This is a very interesting hub. I know alot of people that have piercings in their skin and big gauges. Gauges for those of you that don't know is the earlobe stretching. Cutting your skin? Really that's incrediably stupid, no offence for people with them, I admit I have a piercing and I have small gauges.

You did some good research on this too. I am impressed by your pictures also.

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on February 04, 2010:

Elena from London, UK on October 08, 2009:

Scary stuff. Why do people put their body through that. I guess in a positive way we could call it Art. Lol. Cheers. :)

Katharyne Peckham from Boston, MA. on October 07, 2009:

Wow, the possibilities are endless. I don’t think I would choice to do any thing that extreme to my body, eyes or teeth. Great hub and pictures are amazing.

Very interesting! Some of these are a bit brutal I must say, but never the less very informative. I had no idea some of these methods actually existed until now. Thanks!

Jeni H from Florida on October 05, 2009:

That was AMAZING! and freaky! I will never get most of that done I like my plan tattoos and not so out of the ordinary piercing but what people do to themselves thats "body art" freaking crazy! loved the hub

Mr. Spatrisano from Michigan on October 04, 2009:

Amazing. Jewelry in the eye. They are doing things I never imagined even possible. I had to take a double look at the eye glasses piercing. Wow, not sure what to think of all of this.

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on October 02, 2009:

thanks mith_moral and chiara for coming to this hub. And interesting with this topic.

chiara.bolognini on October 01, 2009:

Never met these kind of people. I think I could get really scared. I find these practices considerably grotesque. However, it would be interesting to explore people´s motivation in doing that bad.

mith_moral on October 01, 2009:

Wow. I thought I knew what I was getting into when I clicked on this hub. Boy, was I wrong.

Thanks for this.

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on October 01, 2009:

thanks febrie. It looks a joke. But it usually place for earrings.

febriedethan from Indonesia on October 01, 2009:

Shocking photos..ear stretching ? Why this person did that and insert the cellphone in his ear, so that he didn't have to pick up the phone, just press the button and talk..?! Ha..ha it's weird. Great job Pras!

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on September 30, 2009:

Actually I have another body modification with rude photo. I think this photo still acceptable. What about the penis split in to two part.I don't think so anyone will accept that.

Leslie Broussard on September 30, 2009:

Wow. You must not get creeped out easily to be able to post all those photos!

Sandy Mertens from Wisconsin, USA on September 30, 2009:

These are very disturbing. I don't know why people do this to themselves. Good Hub!

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on September 27, 2009:

Thank to all for comment to this hub. For Jim, thanks for share about your experience meet the person with extreme body modification. I'll say, It's not hurt....

jim10 from ma on September 27, 2009:

These all look so painful. The other day I was inline at Disney World for a ride and saw some guy with a piercing on the back of his neck. I couldn't quite figure out how it works. It was a little tiny earring size soccer ball. I have also seen on tv the people that have implants on their head so that they can attach horns. that was pretty crazy. The coolest thing of all these is that I am amazed how the people who cut their tongues into two can then move each side separately in strange ways.

Ralph Deeds from Birmingham, Michigan on September 27, 2009:

Ugh! But an interesting Hub.

Waren E from HAS LEFT THE BUILDING............ on September 27, 2009:
