Believe it or not, extreme body modification has been happening since the dawn of civilization. Different tribes from across the world have scarred their bodies with various tattoos and piercings in an effort to show that they were brave, could take pain, and were in touch with the spirit realm. But in the modern era, extreme body mods have taken on a completely different meaning.

Extreme body modifications have taken on many forms in recent years. From getting patterned facial scarring to spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to look like a children’s toy, people all over the world are taking body modification and applying to their own truths. Even though it might seem a bit strange now, it’s entirely possible than in a couple of decades, extreme piercing and body modifications might be the normal standard of beauty.
