Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "body mod photography "

Description
: Pictures themed on tattoos, piercings, & other body modifications.
Difficulty - not just a simple close-up of the work. The picture is what counts. Difficulty part deux - No injury/surgery scars..

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.

With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at)farktography.net and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

- Stats can be found here.

Anyone know what this tattoo means? I think it's military related. This guy was a presidential bodyguard for two years for Kim Daejoong.

Not really consensual body modification. That's what he gets for falling asleep in the bar. (My art as well.)

Lastly, some modifications don't require invasive procedures...

Took me a while to find a photo that had my talisman tatt in it. it isnt particularly good, mind you:
a331.ac-images.myspacecdn.comView Full Size


it is my talisman, my guardian over my heart (left hand side)
it is there so evil spirits cant take my heart while i sleep.

I chose the hammerhead shark because of its electro sensory organ (the hammer head). so it can see anything that has nerves, even when blocked from plain sight. it kind of signifies being able to see everything that tries to sneak up on me.

The irony is that i am a born scientist through and through, and i don't believe in spirits. Which is why this tattoo is my way of saying, no matter what you say or how profound it seems, some meaning is only skin deep... *chuckles to self*
