Careers in Heavy Modification

Saturday July 21st, 2012 @ 7:45 PM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

Dearest BME,

I’m finishing high school at a rather prestigious science school in a few months and although I love my science very, very much, my heart lies in body modification. I want to spend the rest of my days piercing and tattooing to my heart’s content. But I also want to perform scarification, brandings, implants, minor surgeries (ear cutting etc.), suspensions and basically push the limits of body modification. I want to tour the world making people extreme and become renowned worldwide as a true master of the art!

I understand the process for apprenticing under tattoo artists/piercers and all the necessary courses required, but how on earth I go about progressing beyond that I have no idea. Would I need training in medicine or surgery in order to perform some of the more extreme mods? Or would I have to find a heavy mod artist to apprentice under??

Thankyou, Penny <3

I would recommend the later. Find yourself a heavy modification artist to apprentice under and you will be a lot better off in the long run.

Alternatively if you can not find that artist you need to start slow anyway. Finish a proper apprenticeship and spend years striving to be better every day. In time you will have either made industry connections and find someone to teach you or you’ll have worked with people that share their knowledge and you can start furthering your skill set on your own.

Castration by Burdizzo

Wednesday May 2nd, 2012 @ 8:11 AM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

Would like to be castrated by the Burdizzo, Is there anyone out there that would be willing to help with this request? Any have some advice about this?

There is a fair bit of information about Burdizzo on the BME wiki page, however it is something (as with any heavy mod) that I don’t recommend you do your self unless you have experience in that sort of thing.

What I would suggest is to find an experienced body modification artist. As always, make sure you check the person’s portfolio for HEALED work of the same procedure you are looking at getting done and have a consult first so you can get some quotes.

Without knowing where you are from, its difficult to tell you where to go - but if you go into a few studios asking if they know anyone that does it, you will eventually get pointed in the right direction.

There are also artists that travel around the world doing procedures like this, however with heavy genital work they rarely publicise that they do them.

If you decide to do it the DIY method, you should be able to find people who have done it on IAM for further information of how they did it.

Urethral Reroute

Wednesday May 2nd, 2012 @ 8:07 AM

I am interested in getting a Urethral reroute, but need some help and advice. Any one have pointers to this procedure? Is this something a DIY person can do or not?

Thanks for your help.

Head Split

Tuesday December 14th, 2010 @ 4:25 PM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

Dear BME,

Thank you for providing an online community for people interested in body modification. The information and images on your website are very helpful.

Currently I have a 8-gauge Reverse Prince Albert. I wish to split my penis glans from the tip to the fistula that has grown over the last 1.5years. My question is ” What is it like living with a split head? (Pissing, Sex)” and “Is it a bad idea to only split the glans half way?”.

Sincerely,

Elliott

Splitting the top side of the glans (as opposed tot he more common lower side split aka meatotomy) is a difficult procedure to perform as well as to heal. Just keep in mind, it is nowhere near as DIY friendly as the meatotomy. That being said, if done by an experienced practitioner there is no reason no to go for it, if you are so inclined.

As far as living with a split head, it’s not going to be too bothersome. In fact, I would guess this will be easier for urination then the reverse PA you currently have. As for sex, it’s generally considered enjoyable for the person with it and either enjoyable or not noticeable by their partner. As with any genital mod, it can be shocking to some more vanilla partners and quite possibly could be a deal breaker, but who wants to sleep with someone that dull anyhow?

tongue splitting

Saturday April 18th, 2009 @ 1:00 PM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

I would love to get my tongue split but have an 18 month old daughter. Given that she’s at an age where she is picking up on the intricacies of spoken language I can’t really afford to be unable to speak clearly for a significant period of time.

I’ve read the tongue splitting info on the BME encyclopedia and it says about 2 weeks for initial healing, but I was wondering if you could give me an idea of how badly my speech will be effected during that time?

I have and am currently in the process of stretching my tongue piercing; would having a large gauge piercing first make any difference to the ability to speak after the split, or not really?

With regards to speech during the healing time, it is pretty much the same as when you get your tongue pierced as it tends to be the swelling that can hinder your ability to pronounce certain words effectively. Sometimes, the discomfort from the tip touching your teeth can affect your speech but it is a temporary thing as once it is healed you shouldn’t have any difficulties. It is worth noting that everyone is different but in my experience I have never met anyone with a split tongue who has a speech impediment that they didn’t have before.

The idea of stretching an existing piercing prior to a split is more to do with minimising regrowth and has little bearing on speech. Hope that answers your queries.

Jobs

Monday April 6th, 2009 @ 4:55 PM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

I am highly interested in getting alot of work done all over my body. At the moment i am hesitant to because i want to have a stable job that will accept it with decent pay and hours. I live in northern VA and I would like it if anyone had some advice for me?

People say not to get any of the mods i want but i feel its a way of life i choose a self exspretion and an art and i dont feel complete without it someone if u have any advice please help?

thank you

There are exceptions to every rule; while it is difficult to be employed in certain fields with visible modifications, I’m sure that you could find people who’ve worked hard, busted their butt and excelled in their chosen field regardless of the stereo-types that surround “people like us”.

That said- don’t be surprised if you don’t run into many Doctors/Lawyers/Judges/Executives/etc with heavy visible modifications. The key word here is visible. While I totally get where you’re coming from with your belief that this is a “way of life and form of expression” you’re right in assuming that it will make your career path more difficult.

My advice? Stay in school. Go for higher education in the field you want to enter. Make yourself invaluable and most of all- DO NOT LET YOUR MODIFICATIONS DEFINE YOU. We’re all of us so much more than just the things we do to our bodies; yet we get so hung up on the physical.

The drive that makes most of us desire these modifications are what separates us from people who choose not to go down this path. We’re already different, with or without the modifications.

Best of luck!

Tongue Split

Tuesday August 12th, 2008 @ 2:37 AM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

I’d like to get in touch with as many people as possible who have had their tongue split. I’d like to know about their experiences in the real world. Like has it affected in any way negatively on their career. How did they react if someone at their workplace had noticed the split and asked about it? I’d also like to know what they do for a living, and what country they live in.

I actually had my own tongue split about a week ago. My dad find out about it, and he’s convinced that it will have a major negative impact on my life. I’d like to get some real proof that this is propably not the case.

I don’t have any other body mods (not even piercings or tattoos).

Many people lead “normal” successful lives with a tongue split. BME experiences will be a great resource for you to read about other people’s experiences with their own splits!

I think the best way to prove to your dad that having a split tongue isn’t going to negatively affect your life is to not let it! If you’re an educated, hard working, clean individual there’s no reason that a forked tongue is going to hinder your success in life.

Alongement de la langue (french)

Wednesday July 16th, 2008 @ 3:03 PM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

Je voudrais savoir quels sont les risque, quelle est la procédure et quelle est la longueur que l’on peut gagner en fesant couper le nerf sous la langue pour la faire ‘’splitter” plus longue.

Merci!


L’ablation partielle ou totale du frenulum lingual est une opération courante et très simple, permettant de libérer une partie de la langue retenue par cette membrane. La longueur ainsi gagnée varie considérablement en fonction de l’anatomie de chaque individu, mais il est courant de voir une amélioration de 5 à 10 millimètres de long. Les risques sont minimes sinon inexistants à condition que l’opération soit faite par quelqu’un de qualifié et dans un environnement favorable.

L’opération est souvent faite sous anesthésie locale, quoique très peu douloureuse. Dans les cas les plus extrêmes où une bonne quantité de tissus est enlevée, quelques points de sutures peuvent être nécessaires. La guérison est aussi très rapide et il va de sois que dans un cas de bifurcation linguale (tongue splitting), l’opération permet d’augmenter la longueur possible du “split”.

…and to what exact purpose do women get their hoods split?

Sunday October 7th, 2007 @ 3:14 PM

Filed under: Extreme Mods

Hi Vampy,
I’m tempted to get a hood split but don’t really know whether it will be suitable or useful for me to get it done. On what basis and to what exact purpose do women get their hoods split? And are there any articles etc. you would suggest reading first? When I search IAM and the QOD it seems my queries are too vague and I don’t get any useful results.


The main two reasons women get their hoods split are either for aesthetic reasons, or to expose the clitoris more to allow for direct stimulation.

I’m unaware of any useful literature on the subject, everything i’ve learned about it has been from talking to women who have had the procedure done, and practitioners who have performed it. Generally everyone i’ve spoken to who has had it done are happy with the mod, and some want to take it further, or even remove some of the hood tissue. However I have heard about one girl who was very unhappy after getting her hood split, direct contact on her clit was very painful, even to the point that having it rubbing on her underwear as she walked hurt her.

If it is something you are seriously considering, I’d make sure you actually enjoy direct clitoral stimulation, as many women with long hoods that fully cover their clit are unused to this sensation and some even find it painful. While you can expect to lose a little sensitivity over time as your clit is no longer covered all the time, the sensation of having your clit touched is still going to be a lot more intense than having it touched through the hood. As with any permanent mod, unless its something that you REALLY want, it’s probably not for you.

- Vampy
