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.

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.

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.

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, Iâ€™d say yes, but I donâ€™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.

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.

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.

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!
I Think its a disgrace that people think this way, young people im assuming as well.
