A big fan of all things body-mod related.

This blog will mainly feature mug-shots of me, with my ever-changing body modifications.

I have had a little more tattoo work done on my face. Just a new leaf and swirl, they’ll be coloured like the rest of the piece.

The hat is absolutely necessary - I dyed my hair blonde and it’s looking more ginger. 

In case you’re interested:
28mm labret
50mm lobes
12mm nostrils
10mm septum (wearing 4 x 2.5mm segment rings in this shot)

hello sir how ar you today thnx for the following back my friend :D

Heya matey, you’ve some great ink on show on your blog! It’s good to follow like-minded people, thanks for your nice message :) Things here in Lancashire, England are pretty good- was 28 Celsius in the sun today and the weekend is almost upon us! Thanks for asking, I hope you’re enjoying life too :)

The first photo was the original which had quite a few notes here on Tumblr.

The second photo I took to show how much I’ve changed- the original was taken around seven years ago.

The third photo was taken when I realised how old I looked with the beard I’d grown. It’s summer time now so time to loose the majority of my facial hair.

An update on the healing of the fresh part of my eyeliner tattoo. The waterline part was hand-poked on Friday evening and this is now Sunday morning. I’d hoped that such a naturally moist part of the body would form less of a dry scab but as you can see from the last photo, not the case. They still feel gritty but it’s not effecting my vision at all.
Looking at the last photo, I can also see that they’ll need a little more work once this has all healed.

your waterline tattoo looks great! i might get eyeliner tattooed on me someday. I wear make up pretty much everyday since i was in 8th grade. lately i havent been wearing as much, if any. I just dont want to jump the gun and then be stuck with a look i might not want everyday. I already am angry at myself for the empty holes i have in my face from old piercings. I try using vitamin E oil to help them close up but so far i dont see a difference :/

Thank you for that compliment, I’m always humbled when receiving nice remarks from such beautiful people, so thank you! :)
I’m dubious as to whether massaging with oil would help at all- once a fistula has formed within a piercing, little will work to make disappear. I’m saddened to hear that your past piercing marks anger you. Personally I think they’re beautiful.

Finished the first pass of hand-poke tattooing of the waterline part of my eyeliner. This happened yesterday but the photo was taken today, now that they’ve settled down a bit. 

The process was quite uncomfortable, especially on the inner corners of my eyes but overall bearable. Wiping away the excess ink was unpleasant, you can’t really apply too much pressure as you wipe. Also, we had to use a very shallow angle with the needles as the thin tissue has no resilience to pressure from the needle- by angling severely the needle it became easier to apply.

Lots of eye-watering, sneezing and a runny nose caused by the procedure. Quite unpleasant I know, but I found it surprising to see remnants of black ink in the tissue after I blew my nose. 

Today they’ve calmed down considerably. My eyes were almost glued shut when I woke this morning and I have some thick gluey discharge in the corners of my eyes which I continually wipe away. They feel a bit gritty but not too uncomfortable. I just hope they’re fine for work on Monday! 

I think we’ll need to go over them again once they’ve fully healed, just to get any parts we missed. I’m really happy with the outcome, I much prefer this to having the thin fleshy strip above my bottom eyeliner.

Sorry if this is a silly question, but do you go to a tattoo artist or cosmetic "permanent makeup" artist to do the liner around your eyes? I'd love to get mine lined eventually(but just where you plan to do yours next--on the eye's water-line). Thanks in advance. :)

Hello, not a silly question at all :)
My eyeliner was done at home by my wife using the hand poke method. Quite simply, using a round liner tattoo needle (3R if you’re interested) and some premium professional tattoo ink, the lines were formed using a series of dots. It might sound painful but really isn’t at all, I’d suggest only a little more pain than plucking an eyelash hair out.
I know cosmetic artists would complain that the ink I’ve used “isn’t specifically formulated like ours”, but I’d suggest that is utter nonsense. Ink is merely a colour pigment (Carbon in the ink I have), a suspension fluid (Propylene Glycol; same fluid that’s used in eCigarette liquid) and with the ink I have, some witch hazel; all of which are relatively safe for consumption / accepted as safe substances. Besides which, I’ve suffered zero side effects! (Aside from perhaps a few more glances from strangers!).
I’m interested to see the results of only the waterline (thank you for that term, I’ve not heard that before) being tattooed, I imagine quite subtle yet impactful.. Perhaps one day you’ll be able to get rid of your grey face and have a profile photo to share with us! ;) :p

I noticed there’s a gap between my bottom eyeliner and my eye, leaving a flesh coloured line which detracts from the overall look. Using a silly iPad app, I’ve mocked up how it’ll look if that gap is filled in. I’m pretty sure most would agree that the image on the right is an improvement- a tiny amount more ink and it changes the appearance quite markedly. 
I’ll wait until the weekend and will get those gaps filled- I need to ensure the swelling has time to calm down before heading back in to work.
