Body Mods: The Must-Knows’s

Posted on

In human history, tattoos have been around for a very long time, with the earliest evidence of them reaching back to 3370 BC, which is a very long time in comparison to other forms of art. However, in recent years, it has gained popularity among people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds, particularly among young people. It encompasses more than just tattoos; it also includes piercings, tongue separating, stretching, and just about anything else you can imagine. 

Even while we will not be able to cover all of the many types of body modification in this post, we will cover the principles of some of the most popular ones here. Want to find out more? Keep on reading. 


Piercings are among the most frequent types of body mod, and they are also among the most easily removed. From an early age, little girls all over the world have had their ears pierced, generally in the earlobe area, to express their individuality and for cultural reasons.  However, as body modification has gained popularity, different types of piercing have emerged, including piercings in various locations on the ear, cheeks, nose, eyebrows, nipples, and even the intimate areas.  Traditional piercing methods include the use of a sharp, sterile needle to put in ear or  nose studs, or the use of a gun, depending on where the piercing is being performed. It is definitely the ideal one to start with if you are just getting your toes wet in the field of body mods because the holes will generally close up after you take out the jewelry.


The permanence of tattoos, barring extremely expensive and usually painful laser treatment, means that you should consider very carefully before getting your new lover’s moniker tattooed on your arm. It consists of the insertion of ink or pigment into the skin in order to create a permanent design. If you are thinking about getting a tattoo, it is critical that you have it done by a qualified professional tattoo artist rather than having it done at home by someone who thinks they know what they are doing with an eBay kit. 

Other more exotic forms of body mods

Despite the fact that tattoos and piercings are the most frequent forms of body alteration, you will notice a variety of different types in your surroundings. A few of the more unusual procedures include ear gauges, which involve inserting a metal ring into the ear lobe with the intention of stretching it, transdermal and micro dermal implants, which involve implanting anchors for studs and spikes below the surface of the skin,  and even elves ears, which involve the cutting and stitching of ears into a pointed shape. There is also tongue splitting, which is literally what it says on the tin.

Experimenting with body mods is an excellent opportunity to express your more radical and distinctive side while also looking fantastic. However, because they are usually irreversible and will always leave a scar, you should think very carefully before undergoing any procedure that will affect your appearance for the rest of your life. Always make sure you get this type of treatment done at a reputable tattoo or piercing parlour and make sure you follow any aftercare instructions carefully to avoid infection.
