There are moments in some girls’ lives when they need to stand out of the crowd. Some choose to wear a tacky skirt, while others go out of their way to get noticed. Otherwise, I can’t explain these freakiest tattoos and piercings they have on their faces. I mean… Why would you do that? Some guys are really into this? Or do they want to keep them away?




The third one with the Australopithecus afarensis skull tattoo on the head was removed by request.

It’s just so beautiful!!!!!!!!!

To answer your question if some guys are into this, I’d say yes, but I don’t think these girls are looking for guys.

Posted by sleaze | February 26th, 2008 1:11 pm

1. why does their motivation have to be about men? Those things aren’t necessarily meant to either attract OR repel us, They aren’t done simply because they think guys will find it attractive.

2. some of that work is really good (the bug skin removal at top esp) and some of it is crappy, but its not universally “freaky”

stupid, why go out of your way to look ugly?

“why go out of your way to look ugly”

That’s such an ignorant statement.

Just because you or anyone else doesn’t find it attractive doesn’t mean a thing.

Why must people constantly dress and look in a way that’s attractive to other people?

Body modification is all about being comfortable with yourself, and is the opposite of caring if you look “ugly” or not.

And no, I’m a guy, and I’ve got a couple of tattoo’s on my arms, that’s it.

Also, some people might think jeans look ugly, or blonde hair looks ugly, or whatever.

If they’re happy with it that is all that matters, even if the rest of the world hates it.

It is YOUR body and YOU do what YOU want with it.

The girl with the skull on her head is the most beautiful girl I have ever met.
so shove your theory up your ass.

Posted by Jason | February 27th, 2008 12:15 am

That girl with the skull on her head is hot. I’m glad it is only just a profile shot. I am already in a state of painful physical arousal. If any more of her tender, young flesh were exposed I fear I would damage myself beyond repair.

@chris: It is stupid. It’s your body but it’s also you who lives in society. It has got its standards, if you don’t comply with them, you’ll be put aside. That’s why I wouldn’t show any of them to my mom! :)

The girl with a skull on her head is my little sister, so clearly I’m even more unhappy with this article than I would’ve been otherwise. Perhaps it would be a good idea to ask a person for their permission to use their photographs?

Lordy… women’s bodies are continually held up as objects for either admiration or ridicule in a way that men’s bodies seldom are. Would these pictures be so “freaky” if the work was done on men? If the pictures were of men, would there be a little note expressing concern that the dudes won’t find a lady-friend? No, not at all. These pictures are freaky because they show brave women with self-defined ideas of beauty and a serious tolerance for pain.

You don’t like body modifications? That’s fine, don’t get any work done. But don’t feel like your standards are the end-all-be-all, don’t use body modifications as an excuse to further objectify the women who have them, and for Christ’s sake, get it through your thick head that women don’t spend their lives plotting to attract the sexual attention of men.

Most of what I’m inclined to say has already been said, however, in support of those who get the body mods, they are not doing so for the entertainment of or appeal to others. They do it for themselves. Much like the emo-club kid baggy bondage pants that look like shit on EVERYONE who wears them. This is a statement of opinion. In the original poster’s opinion, body mods on girls, particularly the extreme body mods represented here, are not attractive to him (or her), but, I feel that I can say with much confidence that to these women represented here, the OP is also an ugly douche with no personality.
Opinions are a two way street. I think, if I were to openly psychoanalyse this person I’d have to state the conclusion that his/her real problem with body mods on girls is that he/she, in fact, DOES find them attractive and is expressing his frustrations online with not being able to win the attention of such women in a romantic sense in real life. Rather than going out and meeting people he’s basing a lot of what he/she is saying about them on their apparent “freakiness”, as opposed to braving past their appearance and acknowledging that there is a person inside the ink/scarring/body jewelry, getting to know them and then deciding whether or not they are shallow based upon the traits of their psyche as opposed to what they choose to represent socially.
I don’t associate with baggy bondage pants kids because I feel that it’s a trend founded wholly in poor taste, but I also acknowledge that it’s not permanent and that twenty years from now, after the E has warn off, they will realise how idiotic they look and start working on developing a loud and counter culture personality as opposed to buying one off the shelf. Perhaps, to some extent, this would lend credence to the idea that body modification isn’t the best way to represent yourself, but, both sides of this argument have also pointed out that it’s a cultural thing. In some regions of the country, you see more of these types of trends than in others, so, in a sense, yes, you’re both right. However, it’s also the argueably erroneous habit of all cultures to assume that they live at the peak of human enlightenment and therefore frown upon anything that is felt to be a poor representation of their culture. I’m assuming that the OP is American, and therefore must point out to him/her that one of the founding ideals of America is that it is a cultural melting pot, meaning, you will encounter things within this country that betray or are counter to your own sense of style, taste, and aesthetic. Period. If you don’t like it, you have the option of moving somewhere else, wherein, the general sociology is more closely representative of your own cultural views.
Otherwise, you’re always going to be frustrated by women like this because these styles are becoming more and more common place. Perpetuating mysogynist views and ignorance of this particular cultural phenomenon isn’t going to make it go away. It’s just going to elicit more and more comments that basically translate to, “You are stupid. You need to stop spreading your stupid if you want to be respected by your fellow man.” You wouldn’t have said anything if attaining respect wasn’t actually your goal. Unfortunately, there are far more intelligent human beings than you that also own computers who, I’m afraid, wholeheartedly disagree with your point of view and therefore, don’t respect you for it.
Deny it all you like. Generally speaking, those who grunt loudest, generally aren’t out to achieve much more than the attention of anyone who happens to be passing by. So, much in the same way you accuse these ladies of attention grabbing, how is that any different from busting out the soap box and anonymously, verbally and baselessly trashing them online? These women are not afraid to express themselves via their favored medium PUBLICALLY as opposed to hiding in a room in front of a screen and arbitrarily spouting off an opinion which has little basis in reality, nor any socially redeeming value that I can gather.
While I appreciate that you, once again assuming you’re american, you live in a country where free speech is an inherent right, that doesn’t necessarily mean that EVERYONE that lives here SHOULD utilise that right. So, for the sake of our “culture” please THINK before you open your mouth. Peraps if we all thought a little more about what we’re saying there’d be fewer people willing to crash 747’s into our skyscrapers or send scads and scads of anthrax through our mail to random addresses.

When i was 16 I used to be one piercing fan. I had around 20 on my body. But i have never done a piercing so guys like me more.

^ Good on you Maria…

“To answer your question if some guys are into this, I’d say yes, but I don’t think these girls are looking for guys.” <- what an ignorant comment….

It’s not just ‘some guys’ into this…. inner beauty and all… come on children!

I personally find tattoos and piercings sexy on a female, however It’s not all about the looks! I’m a big tattoo fan, with a lot of my lower body covered – this is my artwork, it’s something I treasure very deeply and I tend not to ‘show it off’. Although there are the ‘attention seekers’, knowing a lot of people ‘in the scene’ I’d be inclined to say that they are certainly in the minority. Most people I know have very specific reasons for there body modifications.

Big up BME!

I think it’s also fair to state that humans, unlike birds, lack a certain degree of natural plummage that would enhance their appeal to their desired mates. This is our lot as human beings. Inevitably, we do things to snare the attention of those we desire to copulate with. So, yeah, SOME of these women may very well be seeking GUYS that are, in fact, attracted to this kind of thing. It does illustrate a certainly personality type. However, I think for most people, at least in my experience, body modification stems from the exploration of one’s own identity. I’ve met a few people (guys and girls) who’ve gotten tattoos or peircings as a means of being identified with a certain social demographic and who’ve gotten tattoos or peircings simply because, “It looks cool.” Often times, in my opinion, their choice in “cool” body art drastically differs from my own, but I also accept that everyone has their OWN reasons for doing such things. I have three tattoos. It took me over 10 years after getting my first one to decide what my second and third would be. I wanted to be certain that each of these things would represent something personal for me as well as publically displaying some aspect of my personality. They mean something to me now. 10 years from now, I imagine that meaning will have changed, but I chose them, in some sense, for that reason.
So, I suppose what I’m saying is that people make their own decisions as to how to express themselves. Based solely on what they know. Tattoos may seem shallow or unoriginal to some people, such as the OP here, but these individuals have the right to express themselves as they please. Rather than complain about what you perceive as their motivations for doing so, perhaps we should all be celebrating these individuals willingness to celebrate their right to do so, as loudly as they can. It may sound as if I’m saying you have no right to your opinion of this medium of expression. This is not the case. What it comes down to is that I don’t understand why one would waste so much energy complaining about something that means so little to them. If you do not find this kind of thing attractive, that’s perfectly within your right as a human being to feel that way. Just try to remember, no one is forcing you to.

Ignorant people like you cause the problems in our world today. I don’t know why people can’t take their head out of their ass and realize that not everybody thinks the same way. Just because everything you do, say, wear, whatever is to attract people, does not mean that is the motive of everyone else in the world. People like to express themselves in different ways. I’m sorry if you wouldn’t do that, but it doesn’t make them freaks. I am so sick of close minded people like you tramping on others thinking they are better. Just stop.

Posted by eva | May 10th, 2008 11:42 pm

1st pick,I don’t know what’s more ugly: a tattoo or these stretch marks.But…”de gustibus non est disputandum”.I prefer the stretch marks.

Posted by gaby | July 3rd, 2008 9:27 am

People the are so ignorant. I’m 15 and i don’t find these girls ugly, but unique and beautiful in their own way. Rather than being boring like everyone else. ANd why bring up someones stretch marks? Thay are natural and just a mark that the majority of women get and the tatto is amazing, so shove it up you ass, all you tiny-minded idiots.

Posted by Jane | July 28th, 2008 9:15 pm

It says that the photo of the girl with the skull on her head was removed, but I can see it clear as day….

Posted by Huliana Daevas | August 24th, 2008 5:29 pm

I’m female, and I find the girls on the two last photos and the one with the red mohawk really pretty. I’d love to have something like that done, but I’m such a coward. I admire them for what they did with their appearance. And if you don’t, I couldn’t care less. For me, these women are beautiful.

Posted by touchitplease | September 8th, 2008 6:56 pm

I think it looks beautiful then again im not really the kind of guy any girl would want to attract:-)On a serious note What they do to themselves is personal and its not fair to judge them for it, theres my bit of “open minded” Speil for the day

Posted by fragu | August 13th, 2009 12:00 pm

Aaaaahhh, your so dumb saying that these girls would just do that to attract guys, how sad of you and yes they can attract guys but im sure their lives and interests go deeper that whether they can get a guy or not.

People have different ideas of beauty and i dare you… Dusty ‘ why do you go out of your way to look ugly’ to put a picture of yourself up online cos im pretty sure your not gonna be that hot!!!

Its not scary and maybe people dont want to spend their present life thinking about what something will look like in 50 years, What a sad thought!
Why waste your time worrying if your tattoo will look ok in 50 years,
Do you think these girls will suddenly have a labotimy and end up a bored, desprately depressed person like you probably will and then wish that she hadnt got that tattoo etc when she was young and wild… when now she is older and having to conform and this tattoo is ruining her perfect image of…what? a fifty year old woman?
This sweems to be alot of stupid peoples view… from teenage years to around mid 20s is your ‘wild’ time, the time you can look back on when your older and say ‘oh yes i did have a bit of fun, i was a rebel.. but now i have my proper job and everything ive been told i wanted which is pretty much everything that is wrong with sociaty but fuck im to ignorant to notice or care and im glad i didnt give in to that desire i had to have a tattoo because where would i be now?’

I Think its a disgrace that people think this way, young people im assuming as well.
There are lots of things that look shit in my opinion…. that maybe you think looks great
And to they guy who says that we have to comply for society to accept us, well maybe we dont want to be accepted by a society of people like you and maybe we dont have that pathetic desire to be the same as everyone as you must have! Sad for you, i feel sorry about the way you will live your life as a hinderance to evolution and the progression of our real society and again poor you that you feel that society has put an expectation about how you live on you when really you cant see that you are the one who is making the expectations and genrally because its easier and less scary that being an individual, but thats fine you can do that while the rest of us sensible people will enjoy life and live it instead of caring about how we are percieved especially by the likes of you.
oh and one last thing…im glad if i look a bit scary because it strops all the worlds retards from coming and annoying me!
