    Stop calling it "art". It is not.
    It`s mutilation or graffiti or at best body decoration, but it is not "art".

    I work in a state prison. I see this stuff all the time. I don`t get it...especially the poorly done ones.

    I understand the desire to be different, and/or for attention; I do it myself when I flash people at the bar after I`ve had several shots and a couple beers. But this level, to do this -every day-, to deal with anyone who doesn`t honestly adore your tattoo laughing at and mocking you because you`ve convinced yourself you`re awesome and bold and totally don`t care what others think.. that`s a whole new level.

    i like it, but it seems very impractical, i mean how would it feel to have something snag and rip all those piercings out?

    These are people who have given up on life as we know it. In their world there must be no such thing as "bad attention".

    It is like they are trying so hard to show that they don`t care what others think, but they still need those same people to know that they don`t care what they think.

    This is just my opinion but to me It`s not completely about getting attention, although that inevitably comes with body modding. The scene I feel is about pushing limits, finding new ways to transcend the natural body image through artistry. Art itself is a very difficult thing conceptually to pin down and ultimately will always have different definitions for different people but body modding has been around for an awfully long time ( 10, 000 years) and I feel speaks of humanity`s need to take ownership of their bodies, to explore life starting with the self. Scarification, Piercing, tattoos, implants, people do these things because first and foremost they want it done, they want to push their limits in the same way someone might do an extreme sport (not to mention the fact that you can get an endorphin rush through meat-hooking, scarification), they`re not thinking about other people. Plus they make the world a helluva lot less dull than it already soul suckingly is.

    there was some pretty work in there, though the lacing all creeps me out, even if the end product is rather beautiful. I just personally loved how one tattoo, though understated and simple in comparison to the elaborate work of the rest was thrown in just because ugh...drating Justin Bieber XD

    The girl with the dolphin/ocean on her back, probably the only one that was closest to "decent". All of the other ones leave me with little desire. Live and let live. Just not for me.

    Hmm, the only one I found passable was the full back/backside of black trees, leaves, birds etc.

    @Gerry1of1 Just because you don`t see it as art doesn`t mean there aren`t some us that do... I am a tattoo ARTist. To me tattoos are art. To me a lot of graffiti is art. It takes skill to create something that that someone (not everyone) can look at and appreciate. But just because you don`t consider it to be art does not make you the final authority.
