Tattoos | Latest Book from Spider Web: "The Big Book of Tattoos" Now Available


Tattoo fans will enjoy the latest book from none other than Spider Webb, which has just released "The Big Book of Tattoos," covering a ton of retro tattoos back to the earliest times when they could be photographed, through the 1970s.

Along with the expected navy tattoos, are tattoos covering circus entertainers from that day, and the women who started going against the grain and getting inked far before it was considered acceptable.

Much of the tattoos of that time expressed a lot about life and the deeper feelings had by many then, including their ancestry, religion and love.

If you want to get it quick, I left a link below to where you can find it.

Bizarre Art Trends | "Untitled Hardcore Zombie Project" from Bruce LaBruce

Bizarre Art Trends

When I found this my immediate reaction was: whaaaat? At first I thought it was really going to be edgy, because of the crazy photo you see with Tony Ward (Madonna's former something) putting the gun to his temple.

But after going through a number of the photos, there's just too much blood for me. Not in the squeamish way, but just in a way that makes it too unreal, fake, and boring; it takes over the photos, and you lose the models and mostly irrelevant posing.

The best picture is the one I mentioned. The rest don't do much for me.

I suppose there's supposed to be a shock factor here, but to me it doesn't happen.

This production is by porn/horror producer Bruce LaBruce, and is running at the LA Peres Project until June 27.

Bizarre Celebrations | A Wedding Cake to Kill - Literally

Strange Wedding Cake

I'm not sure if you could call this a wedding cake or a divorce cake, but either way it definitely has a message to say, and you don't need any words to communicate it.

Do you ever wonder who sits around thinking up this stuff? A little scary.

Whoever thought up this cake takes life a little too seriously, unless, it's a subtle joke or hint from the bride what she has in store for him if he doesn't take his vows seriously.

Or in the case of it being a divorce cake, she's telling him what his end is about to be. Or in other words, she's going to suck him dry.

Piercings | Woman's Piercings Attach Metal To Her Back


Many piercings, especially extreme piercings aren't very flattering at minimum, and most are made to shock.

While the metal piercings done on the back of this woman definitely qualify for extreme, there is also an aesthetic side that is pleasing to look at.

If you were to look close up, the metal is actually bolted to the back of the woman in pieces.

This body modification I would really call art, but I do wonder what happens is she sits down and leans back against a chair, or forgets and presses her back against a wall.

Now this would be a good image to include in a character in a film or TV show. I especially like the 3-D look in the middle of her back.

If you want to see a few more pics of her, go here. Caution: frontal nudity on some.

Vampires | Cool Two-Eyed Girl Vampire Poster

Vampire Poster

This poster is a good lesson to all the guys. Just because you see a cute girl from behind wearing pigtails, doesn't mean she's safe.

It gets worse though. Not only does she have a good pair of vampire fangs, but when she bites you you have to look at those two different colored eyes. Talk about adding insult to injury.

That'll teach ya not to come with protection. Hehe.

Oh well, I really do like the pretty girl. I nominate her for the girl vampire next door! Anyone agree?


At least my home girl vampire in the photo below is right up front with it.

Tattoos | Skull Tattoos Continue to Grow in Popularity


Skull tattoos continue to grow in popularity, and in response to the demand, tattoo artists have been creating a large number of compelling and unique designs for those who want to go as extreme with them as they want.

For the less adventerous, you could always try out a temporary skull tattoo to see if it's what you thought it would be, and if the placement fits with what you were thinking.

I'm not quite sure what the fascination is with images of skulls as the inspiration for being tattooed, but hey, to each his own.

So, it remains to be seen if this continues to be a growing part of the tattooing culture, but by all counts it looks like it will be.

You have to admit, when you think of a skull tattoo, a flower tattoo just doesn't seem to have much zip to it. Still, I've seen a few pretty good ones, but that's off the topic of this post. I'm starting to ramble on too much.

Anyway, I would try a temporary tattoo in the case of a skull, as it carries something with it you really want to be sure is what you want to be communicated for the rest of your life on your body. You know, buyers' remorse and that type of thing.

Extreme Tattoos | Square Tattoos on Man's Face and Body

Extreme Tattoos

What would your reaction be to seeing this guy which black and white square tattoos all over his face? My initial reaction is - break out the checkers.

Hey, without a board anywhere, you could ask him to put his face down sideways so you could play a game. Hehe.

Ok. I had to get that out of the way and say it. But really, I wonder what his reasoning and purpose behind this one is? He must love playing checkers or chess, or else otherwise - why?

There are a lot better ways a person could put tattoos on their body than this. I guess only the people deciding things like this can give us the answers

Weird Piercings | Wei Sheng - Guinness World Record Holder for Piercing

Weird Piercings

This photo of Wei Sheng is actually a wimpy one in comparison to the time he held the world record for being pierced with 1790 needles. In the photo, he only has 800 acupuncture needles in his head, making his other piercings look awesome.

As acupuncture needles are usually used in connection to health-related issues, this guy must have had a heck of a headache to need those 800 needles.

In celebration of the Olympics in China in 2008, Wei Sheng also pierced his body with 2008 needles as a gift to the Olympic games in Beijing.

According to Wei Jing, the reason he practices and promotes piercing his body with so many acupuncture needles is to keep the traditional practice of acupuncture in the public eye in China.

Wei Jing is a doctor. I could imagine going to his office with a migraine headache and being told the remedy is 500 needles in the head. Ouch!

Anyway, just another person practicing strange piercings for their own reasons.

Extreme Women | Women Who Make the Spring Break Crowd Look Tame

Extreme Women

Who are these defiant girls? - These extreme women and ladies who seem to take everything to the limit?

Women who are pressing the limits are involved with many areas of life, including extreme tattooing to extreme erotic. And these oddly erotic female can go into numerous areas of interest within the erotic subculture. Many being revealed in a wide variety of erotic photos or extreme video clips.

Some of the more extreme women in the erotic area enter into wildly risque bdsm. Many of these bdsm erotic photos and extreme pics of females are disturbing to many, to say the least.

Many of these are tied women who allow almost anything to be done to them while they are helpless. Many times the bdsm actions done to the women are a combination of pain and pleasure.

Many women watching from the outside are hogtied, or should I say tongue-tied over this, and can't relate to many of the bizarre extremes some women will go to to express themselves and get attention.

A number of women like to go the route of extreme leather, while others enter into the role of submissive women. Submissive women? Is that an oxymoron?

These odd women or extreme girls can be found all over the Internet, and there are literally millions of extreme links to the women. Of course a lot of young males already know this ... don't you? ... admit it!

So in many cases these weird women looking strange and unusual, find themselves in the news everywhere, as the media eats up this type of behavior, the major reason behind women doing it.

You can even get weird news of women in extreme makeovers, where the difference between the before and after is definitely weird and strange, no matter how much a taste you have for it.

Of course The Bizarre and Weird blog is dedicated to reporting on the weird stories about people and life in general, including the growing number of strange and odd woman and girls

At this blog, you will find that a weird pic, behavior and story is the norm, and not the exception. Along with the strange and bizarre facts and pictures, there will also be the unique subcultures and fashion that inevitably is part of these lifestyles.

From the strangely erotic women and men, to those that go even a step further and enter into the freaky women and girl behavior, which is disturbing to everyone but the practicioners.

I think you're getting the drift that many women are become extreme and weird people and the weird stories and pics on the blog will tell a lot of that story and the accompanying news connected to those freaky women and girls.

Ok, you get the point.

Another area women are increasingly becoming involved in is extreme tattooing and piercings.

In the area of tattooing, Kat Von D has especially led the way to making the practice a part of the mainstream for women, with about 13 percent of women of all ages sporting tattoos in America.

Some celebrities like Angelina Jolie and her famous tatoos also have made it a much more popular and acceptable practice.

Like everything else though, there are women with tattoos, and there are women with extreme tattoos. Those with extreme tatoos also can get into a combination of weird piercings and tattoos that totally alter their appearance.

Then there are some women who end up having weird full body tattoos, which when they get older don't look good, if they did at all when they were younger.

Add in implants and things get even weirder looking, but even there there are a lot of women willing to take those steps and actions.

I don't know how far women are willing to go to embrace the bizarre and weird, but there definitely is a gap between those that will go far and those that won't.

It's one of those things when you see the women that you know right away if it's beyond your comfort zone.

But unless you're in the tattoo industry like Kat Van D, the erotic industry, or have enough money like celebrities do, many women will find themselves struggling to find their way when they discover their look and lifestyle clashes with most of those looking to hire.

I realize I've started to ramble, when I was just trying to talk a little about the unusual changes some women are embracing, and the extraordinary extreme many women are willing to go to.

Bizarre Celebrations | Tossing Babies 50 Feet off of Tower

Bizarre Celebrations

Some of you may be highly disturbed by those video of throwing babies off the top of a 50 foot tower, and rightly so.

This is practiced in the an area of India named Solapur, in Maharashtra.

What's the reasoning behind it? Strangely enough, the parents believe their children will enjoy long and healthy lives after being tossed from the tower.

Now the secret is getting them to survive the plunge, which allegedly has never resulted in an injury.

I have to admit when you watch the babies fall and land, they've got it down to a science as far as the baby bouncing and being caught in one motion.

But still, I'm surprised no reports of broken necks or something have ever occurred.
Who practices this? Mostly Moslems, with a smaller number of Hindus participating.

Parents who have their children tossed normally do it after becoming pregnant after praying a what's called the Shrine of Baba Umer Dargah.

You would think just a call to mom and dad would be enough to celebrate. Anyway, what strange practice to toss your baby off of a 50-foot tower.

Vampire | Steven Klein's Violent Vampires in Latest Photoshoot

Vampire Photoshoots

Steven Klein loves to show the violent side of life, and he does it aggressively, as his latest photoshoot portrays vampires and the Joker in intense scenes.

Dubbing his latest creations "Lara fiction noire," Klein showcases his work in February edition of Vogue Paris.

Klein worked with fashion editor Marie Amelie Sauve in the shoot, and the blond female in the photo, who starred in the collection is Lara Stone.

These violent vampire photos are definitely disturbing. It does make me wonder what it is he's trying to say in them, other than attempting to shock people.

Vampires | Gruesome Vampire Photos the Rage

Vampire Photos

As shown in the above photo by Terry Richardson, anything vampire is popular, with a lot of that popularity being generated by the popular Twilight vampire series by Stephanie Meyer, which will have its second installment "New Moon" coming out later this year.

Of course I doubt the Twilight series will include photos and images like this, as it is attempting to be more of a love story, although vampire stories without a little "teeth" would probably be pretty dull (puns intended).

These vampire photos, especially in the case of the rope around the neck definitely push the limit, and show the interpretations of Richardson from quite a different mindset than Stephenie Meyers.

Tattoos for Women | Ladies and Extreme, Bizarre and Odd Tattoo Pics and Images

In recent studies it has been found that women and men are very close in how many have tattoos inked on their bodies; only a couple percentage points separate the number that are tattooed.

When you look at the women that are tattooing, you also find that many of them, like their male counterparts, are entering into extreme tattooing, and in many cases cover their bodies with them.

One of the key women behind all this, and one that has made it very popular, is of course Kat Von D, who with her appearances on television has brought tattooing for women more mainstream.

So women, even many older women that are grandmas have extreme tattoos or their bodies covered with tattos. Some of the tattoos are just plain weird, either that or the number of them are weird.

One problem women with extreme tattoos have is as they grow older, they lose the sexy part of having tattoos, and they increasingly become considered trailer trash; something most women should consider before entering into tattooing their bodies.

Another thing to keep in mind is you really can't change your mind about tattoos, as even though they can be taken off, the process can make your skin look as bad as when the tattoos were on. Some ink colors are also harder to take off than others.

So if you want to remove your tattoos, and if they're in places on your body or face that will be seen by everyone looking at you, it is important to think of the overall picture before plunging in.

I also advocate trying out some temporary tattoos before making a decision to do something permanent. As a matter of fact, having temporary tattoos can be just as satisfying and creative as permanent tattoos, and even more creative because temporary tattoos offer the opportunity to manage the tattoos according to the circumstances you're going to be in, as well as offer a lot more variety to have fun with, because you can change them whenever you want to.

Where permanent or temporary tattoos, there are tons of tattoo designs for men or women, and whatever lifestyle you choose to live or message you want to say, there's always a way to do it through tattoos.

There's also a tattoo for every part of your body, from back tattoss to neck, leg, ankle ... or wherever you want to put a tattoo, there's style and design to meet your wants and needs.

You can look through tattoo pictures, tattoo galleries and tattoo books to get an idea, as there are literally thousands upon thousands to choose from. Don't just pick the first one you like, take time to go through a number of possibilities before plunging in.

There are a ton of tattoo pics, so take your time, there's no hurry. And if you're going to put a tattoo on permanently, you owe it to yourself to make sure you'll be happy with it.

One thing to keep in mind with tattoo images, is in reference to tattoo lettering or tattoo phrases or names. You know the horror stories of people putting the name of a boyfriend or girlfriend, or something they want to say on their bodies, and then they lose the boyfriend or girlfriend, or move on or stop believing in a cause or something like that, then they're stuck with something that is not only not relevant to their lives anymore, but which reminds them day after day of something they'd rather forget.

So before committing to a tattoo image or picture, whether lettering, words or phrases, make sure the permanency of the ink reflects the permenency of what you believe or who you love.

If you don't removing tattoos is a more painful and costly procedure than having them put on, and they leave a permanent mark, even if the ink is removed. It's best to simply not do it in the first place. You'd be surprised how many name tattoos there are out there that people desparately want removed, but can't afford it or don't want to go through the process.

So if you're thinking or getting a tattoo, there are a lot of places you can look at to get a tattoo idea.

Pics of tattoos can be found on tattoo websites, which will include tons of tattoo galleries and cool tattoo designs. Along with photos, you can also find tattoo drawings, which can give you ideas to design your own tattoo if you choose.

If you enjoy looking at tattoos while relaxing, you can also find a number of tattoo magazine and tattoo books, which of course have very high quality photos you can look, either to get ideas or just for the fun and enjoyment of the art.

So whatever you're looking for and wanting to find concerning tattoos, there's the easy and fast access to tattoo sites, where tattoos galleries and pics are abundant and easy to access.

Whether websites, magazines, TV or books, tattoos can be found everywhere in whatever medium you choose, and tattoos pics that will give you the ideas you need will provide you with more than enough information to make a intelligent decision.

Tattooing | Making Tattoo Decisons Which Affect the Rest of Your Life


Many times those who make quick decisions about tattoos don't really think things through, and can do long-term harm to themselves, whether they regret the decision or not.

There's no doubt the more extreme tattooing you get, the more limitations you put on a number of areas of your life; including jobs and available dates and potential marriage with the opposite sex.

Even if someone wishes to remove a tattoo, it can cost a lot of money, and if you foolishly put it on your face like this guy did in the photo, to remove it would not make you look very good, and would make it worst than keeping it.

Less ambitious and less noticeable tattoos have to be thought through too, as they speak to who you are, and depending on your age or sex, may not be the most flattering message you send about yourself.

Anyway, hopefully you won't make tattooing decisons when you're high or drunk, as that's when the most damaging results can happen.

I may be best to try out some temporary tattoos before tattooing permanently, as you'll see what it looks like, and whether you want to carry that on your body the rest of your life.


Extreme Tattoos | Fantastic 3D Cross Tattoo

Cross Tattoos

The Christian cross gives a ton of opportunities to create and ink some fantastic cross tattoos, and it's no different in the one I included here, which fills the back of this person.

This 3D cross is one of my favorites, and its extraordinary in detail and quality.

It's too bad the photo was taken the way it was, as it takes away some from the effect of the tattoo, which if done right, would have really looked great.

Even so, this 3D cross tattoo looks fantastic as shown, but must really be extreme when you see it in person.

Extreme Tattoos | Pretty Grandma's Body Covered with Tattoos

Extreme Tattoos

There are some people who enjoy showing something or someone they enjoy or love through putting a tattoo or several tattoos on their body.

For others, it becomes a strange obsession, and they can't stop putting tattoos on their bodies until all their skin is covered.

That's the case with this women shown here, who is covered from her kneck down with tattoos, and seemingly can't stop the practice. It doesn't look like she has anywhere else to put them, so I wonder what she'll do next?

I wonder how her grandchildren introduce their tattoo grandma?

Goth | Goth Fashion Popular This Season


Looking at the fashion shows and collections this spring, goth fashion trends have been a very popular theme, along with the darkened shadow around the eyes.

Vogue Italia just released a collection from the likes of Nina Ricci, Yhoji and Yves Saint Laurent with a strong goth fashion statement shot by Craig McDean.

Some of these photos were strangely bizarre and eerie, as a number of models looked like they were mannequins.

Some of the more popular models took part in the shoot like Magdalena, Jourdan, Eniko and Evelina.


Vampires | Female Vampire Art After Feeding on Victim


I like this particular vampire art, more than anything, because it's well done.

Not only are the eyes believable, as she has just finished feeding on a victim, but the background really adds to the overall effect, as it reveals the environment surrounding the incident and lifestyle of the female vampire.

Fantasy art of any kind is one of my favorites, and this is one of a growing number of vampire works I am starting to appreciate.

Tattoo Women | Kat Von D Retains Beauty While Showing Off Tattoos

Tattoo Women

Kat Von D is one of the most well known women sporting tattoos in the world, and she definitely has a lot of them, as her body is inked from top to bottom.

There are so many on her, that it is distracting to me, but she is one of the few women I've seen that can still retain her beauty, without the tattoos completely getting in the way and who she is being lost in the art.

It seems they belong to one another (the tattoos and Kat Von D), and are one with each other. Not too many people give off that vibe, but Von D definitely does.

So even with her extreme and weird tattoos, she is able to maintain her beauty, without being lost as simply a canvass presenting ink, while losing the canvass.

The magic of Kat Von D is she can do both; something not very common among those enamored with ink.

Why go through pain when getting your tattoo? Go here to get relief!

Bizarre Subcultures | Norwegian Black Metal

Bizarre Subcultures

Photographer Peter Beste has been known for his exploration of subcultures, and in his latest work, he shows us the type of culture surrounding Norwegian Black Metal. The book is named "True Norwegian Black Metal."

Norwegian Black Metal emerged in the early 1990s, with an extremely dark underside, which included murders and arson; especially against medieval wooden church buildings.

They've also been known do desecrate graveyards.

According to Beste, it originally started out as a juvenile fad, which quickly became a war against Christianity. It also advocates a return to the worship of Norse gods.

They completely reject mainstream society in all its forms.

Included in his book are a look at black metal acts like Darkthrone, Mayhem, Emperor, Satryicon, Enslaved and Immortal.

Weird Sculpture | Sculpted Caricatures by David O'Keefe

Weird Art

The sculpted caricatures of David O'Keefe are fascinating, in that they retain the likeness of the subjects, while at the same time adding a grotesque nature to them.

What's interesting in the caricatures are believable, while including the obvious distortion of their features. It seems O'Keefe is attempting to reveal something he feels is on the inside of the person, by enlarging certain aspects of their looks.

Of course he could just be having a lot of fun, which I'm sure he is either way.

But knowing artists, they always are looking at something from a different way than others do, and I'm sure O'Keefe is saying something through all his interesting works.

Horror | Macabre Paintings of Matthew Bone and Brian Viveros


In an exhibit named "Southern" at The Last Rites Gallery in New York, Brian Viveros and Matthew Bone displayed their horror paintings' exhibit based on their love of the horror genre.

According to Matthew Bones, his work was inspired by the French horror film "Inside," which I've included a trailer of below.

As you can see from the paintings, there is a dark ad macabre element in the works, definitely underscoring the dark side of the sense of horror that always seems to be just outside our consciousness. There is a haunting feeling to the work, as you can see.

Fangoria recently celebrated its 30th year of bringing all the horror and gore it could think of to horror genre fans.

Horror fans were definitely up to the challenge of dressing in the most macabre creations they could think of.

Some of those included schoolgirl zombies, killer condoms, nurse zombies and blood baths, among a plethora of others.

There was the obligatory horror movies for fans to watch, along with attempts for zombie walkers to break the record.

Bizarre Fashion | Manuel Albarran's Metal Couture

Bizarre Fashion

Fashion trends are definitely changing, and one of those leading the way is Manuel Albarran, who has experimented with corsetry, and has recently entered into Metal Couture, creating some amazing works.

And in some cases, he has combined the two to create something even more unique.

The one thing you immediately get when you look at his metal works, is there's an element of a look of the cyborg, which adds to the mystique and attraction of the medium.

Albarran says his Metal Couture is developed "through the careful combination of metal and different materials and techniques for fashion, art and cinema."

Megan Fox has been everywhere these days, appearing on one magazine cover after another, as she brands herself and promotes the upcoming second installment of Transformers.

But we don't need any excuse to show a photo of this gorgeous starlet, and if we have to use a tattoo for an excuse, so much the better for it.

Bizarre Tattoos | Alien Tattoos from Film Series

Bizarre Tattoos

Here's another alien tattoo in the popular theme of fans of the film series.

This alien tattoo really isn't too bad in contrast to some of the other more edgy Alien tattoos. I guess fans of the series want to express it in ink on their bodies.

If I was going to get a tattoo, one of the Alien wouldn't be among my choices, but you can't fault someone who really likes the series for putting it permanently on their body.

For me, the size of it is probably the thing I don't like the most. But what does impress me is the look that there is a shadow from the tail. Now that's cool!

Weird Tattoos

Having your back filled with tattoos is being seen more and more, and the ladies have definitely taken up the practice.

In this instance, the tattoos seem to not be connected in any way, and are plastered on her back without any meaning.

The color scheme works though, and even with the flowers on top, to the skeleton in the middle, to the fish on the bottom, it at least seems to flow from an artistic standpoint, if not from a theme that is coherent.

I know it's an attempt to be an underwater scene with a skeleton headed octopus, but it doesn't quite work for me.

Overall it's not bad tattoo scene in spite of that.

Weird Tattoos | Tattoos of Children of Celebrities - Maddox Pitt

Celebrity Tattoos

It's one thing for a celebrity to put the names or other related things to their children as tatoos on their bodies, but for someone else to take the likeness of a celebrity's child and tattoo it on their body, that just seems creepy to me.

Take this one of Maddox Pitt, the adopted child of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

My first thought is, why don't you go adopt your own child and tattoo their likeness on your skin. Or, have children of your own and do it.

This is like vicariously living your live through someone else's in an unhealthy way.

When looking around at the types of tattoos people wear, the film franchise 'Alien' seems to be growing in popularity, as it seems to be showing up a lot more than it used to.

Maybe it's the growing number of spinoffs that keep the creature in the minds of fans.

Either way, the look of the Alien itself lends itself to some pretty creative tattoos, and here's one that dark and evil looking.

Extreme Body Modificaton | Wolverine Wannabee - This is Not Our Idea of Hugh Jackman

Extreme Body Modification

In one of the more bizarre body modifications I've seen, this looks like a Hugh Jackman, Wolverine wannabee.

The least the guy could have done would have been to have put his hair in the style Wolverine wears. At minimum that would have added a cool element to it.

Also, if he tried swiping those things at anybody, his hands would suffer more damage than those he would have tried to scar up.

Sorry, this just doesn't do it for me. Retract the claws. Whatever you were attempting to say or do by doing this to yourself, it doesn't seemed to have worked.

This tattoo of the baby alien character from the movie breaking out of the chest cavity, while gruesome, is fascinating. Talk about an obsession, and walking billboard for the movie and franchise.

It would take a lot of guts to walk around with this, as it would obviously be disapproved by a lot of people, while at the same time attracting those who would think it is really cool.

We'll see more of these types of tattoos celebrating the 'Alien' franchise in future posts.

I really can't put a finger on the exact reason I really like this gothic postcard, but maybe it's the vulnerability, but seeming lack of fear of the young woman portrayed in the art.

There is that sense of danger by the surroundings she's in, even though she is blindfolded, doesn't show it bothers her.

Evidently it's the composure under the unknown duress she either has faced, or is going to face, along with the beauty of the subject as well, that makes it so compelling.

Tattoos Men | Extreme Tattoo of Alien Covering Back of Man

Extreme Tattoos

... or wait, is that an alien with a human tattooed on his back? We'll never know!

I don't think this guy will have too much troubled being bothered by any kids following him, as the back of his head is enough to scare off all but the most adventurous.

If you're going to go all the way with this, I think you might as well get something that you really like, which this guy obviously does, as you can see from the entire story the tattoo reveals.

Now I think he will have a house full of science fiction books. How about you?

Tattoo Women | Kat Von D Looking Great in Photo

Women Tattoos

Kat Von D is one of my favorite people when it comes to displaying her tattoos, and this photo is one of the best I've found of her.

The extraordinary color, along with that sultry and beautiful look, is very easy on the eyes, and a real work of art. I really like this.

Extreme Body Modification | The Lizardman "Carved" Out His Niche

Extreme Body Modification

Most people have probably seen a photo and video of lizardman, who has created a career out of his evident desperation to be noticed; and need for fame.

Some of the things he's done to modify his body have been tatoos, splitting his tongue, shaping his teeth and implants.

For whatever reason, turning himself into a freak doesn't bother him, but has been very profitable, as he's been books at a variety of shows and festivals around the world.

Maybe the best thing you can say about it is it maybe beats a 9-5 job.

Extreme Body Modification | Ritual Suspension and Stretching the Boundaries

Extreme Body Modification

This is close to getting as extreme as you can get, and an increasing number of people are entering into "hanging" around, saying it somehow is a purifying experience.

I'm not too sure about that. What is being purified and how?

To each his own I guess. But this has a lot of things that could go wrong, and it could mess up some things permanently, especially with those that enter into suspensions that are very risky.

Extreme Modification - Man with Face Looking Like it Met the Alien

Face Modification

I think we have another one of those people that just don't get enough attention.

Ok. There's a one-word question: Why? Comment if you think you have the answer.

What do you call something like this? It looks like the guy got beat up by the "Alien," and then the mob got hold of him.

I'm not sure how this was done. Was it a combination of modification and tattoo?

Bizarre Tattoos - Woman with 1896 Tattoo Map of Hometown on Back


Looking for something unique, but not wanting to simply copy what everyone else considered unique, a couple years ago Britta Oelschlaeger went on a search for something that would suit her.

That journey literally took about 10 years before she stumbled upon a 1896 map of her hometown of Hannover in Germany.

One of the parameters guiding Britta was she wanted it to cover her back.

Saying she loves maps, when she found the old one of Hannover, she jumped at the chance to have it inked on her back.

It tooks about 7 hours just for the outline you see in the photo to be completed, and a lot more for it to be colored in.


Celebrity Tattoos | Angelina Jolie - Queen of the Celebrity Tattoos

Celebrity Tattoos

There's no doubt that the tattoos Angelina Jolie has put on her body, whether permanent or temporary, are among the most well known in the world.

Although the boring ones with latitude and longitude, and also the writing, are the least interesting, for Jolie, they're the most important.

The latitude and longitude ones are where she had or adopted her children.

Jolie looks great with tattoos, but like with other beautiful women, you just seem to notice her more than the ink, no matter how good they look.

Horror | Fright Fans Get New Horror Movie Portal from MySpace


Increasingly MySpace is moving toward being an entertainment and entertainment niche portal, and going with that transformation, they've added a new channel to the site named the "Horror Movie Channel."

Along being populated with some blogs for popular horror web sites, the channel also has an interview and preview from the upcoming horror film release from Sam Raimi - "Drag Me To Hell."

This site is already gaining some traction, and once horror fans find it, should be very popular for those who can't get enough of their horror content.

Extreme Tattoos | Bizarre Tattoos on Bodies of Three Men


I guess you could call these guys the three amigos. In this case most of us are glad they're covered with tattoos, as it covers up a lot of what I have no desire to see.

Now we know one of the inspirations behind people putting tattoos all over their bodies; they and we don't have to see all their flaws.

That's the ultimate in cover up.


Weird Couple | Man Riding on Back of Fat Lady

Weird Behavior

Some here may not think there's a limit to how much skin you want to see, but in this case, this is a lot more flesh than I ever want to have to look at.

As far as the lady goes, that's a lot more flesh than she should have.

At least the guy is safer with a larger platform to sit on.

Talk about a cellulite problem though. Gross!

Bizarre Tattoos | Beautiful Woman Showing Her Tattoos

This woman has enough, ah, assets to not have to do anything else to gain attention of the gaze of interested males.

But who knows her reasoning behind being tattooed.

This is one time when is makes no difference what the subject matter is, the tattoo is definitely not the major focus here.

Goth Trends | Goth Festival Has Big Turnout


For years the town of Whitby in the UK has been the destination of those who like to celebrate the Goth lifestyle.

Looking at the style of dress worn by the visitors though, they look more like weekend dabblers than serious practicioners.

I always find it interesting looking at goth fashion, that there's always a bunch of people dressing like nuns and priests or vicars.

Just like a true westerner, it was more about enjoying the bands and buying up trinkets serving the market. It's more like having fun on Halloween than anything else with this group.

Compare their costumes to the one below.
