Now that's interesting!

It's pretty rare to actually get “new” photos… That is, photos of largely undocumented techniques. Today I got a slew of photos of permanent piercings done using a “chain method” (they'll be added this evening to BME).

The underlying concept is that by using chain, rather than a solid bar, that the tissue grows through the links of the chain, effectively integrating it into your body. The shoulder piercing above (there are lots more that are getting posted to the site) takes is a big step farther by being intramuscular — this piercing passes more than an inch down into the shoulder!

Now, I'm not recommending this procedure, it's obviously fraught with risks and should only be attempted by those with mutant healing factor… But boy is it neat to see it in practise successfully!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
