Would you like to have a picture of a 3D demon exploding out of your chest? Would you like to make it look like an exquisite piece of art was carved out of your right leg? Would you like to see the shock on people’s faces when they think that a real scorpion is sitting on your shoulder or a real snake is crawling down your back? In recent years, more Americans have been getting tattoos than ever before, but now a new body art trend is spreading across America like wildfire. 3D tattoos can be far more realistic than conventional tattoos, and many are choosing them for their pure shock value. But how will all of these young people feel about their weird tattoos a decade or two from now? And what does all of this bizarre body art say about our society? Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
What you just saw are examples of what I thought that I could safely share.
There are a lot of other photos that were so demonic or so risque that I felt that I just couldn’t share them.
These 3D tattoos are part of a much larger trend known as “extreme body modification”. In this day and age, there seems to be a constant desire to “push the envelope” in the body art community. And what some people have chosen to do to themselves in the name of “art” is truly, truly bizarre. The following is a short excerpt from my previous article entitled “People Are Undergoing Extreme Body Modifications In Order To Look More Like The Devil?“…
When does body modification go too far? In recent years, the popularity of tattoos and body piercings has soared, but now there are thousands of people around the globe that are taking body modification to ridiculous extremes. For example, would you be willing to have your tongue split in two so that you could have a forked tongue? What about getting eyeball tattoos or having titanium horns implanted in your head? To most people, doing such things would be unimaginable, but there is a growing subculture of individuals out there that truly seem to enjoy “pushing the envelope” and seeing what is possible. Some of them want to look like cats, some want to look like vampires, others want to look like aliens and some even want to look like the devil. Yes, you read that correctly. You are about to read about one man that is purposely modifying his body so that he will look as much like the devil as possible. In fact, he even plans to add a tail someday.
You can check out the rest of that article right here.
I have a feeling that most of these people that are mutilating themselves will end up deeply regretting it.
After all, the truth is that most forms of extreme body modification are not going to help you get a job or find a spouse.
But what do you think? Are 3D tattoos and other forms of extreme body modification a good thing? Please share your thoughts by posting a comment below…
