    You don't want to look at someof the other body modification stuff out there then. someone pointed me in the direction of one set of pictures and it is of skin cutting (not the actual term but can't remember), not just using a knife on your skin but actually cutting chunks out almost an inch wide in patterns. Really made me feel ill!

    To be honest its a case of each to their own. Whilst you may not agree with what someone does or how someone lives their life you cannot judge what someone does in their life without first looking at your own.

    If they want to do it then as you say each to their own. I was just commenting that there are even more extreme things that people do to their bodies. Heck there are people that want to have unnecessary amputations.
    Takes all sorts.

    I am p***ed off with people commenting on others lifestyles if they differ from the "norm". Diversity is what makes us all unique, what people want to do to themselves is upto them at the end of the day.

    I have friends who are into branding and scarification and they are some of the most enlightened people I have ever met unlike the bigoted, narrow minded morons whom seem to make up the majority of people in this sad, pathetic excuse of a country that we live in these days.

    richard - I agree 100%. Everyone makes their own choices about what they want to do. Who's to say that BM is any different to piercing? Or different to tribal marking in Africa? They are all related.

    Just because you personally wouldn't do it, doesn't mean they are strange or weird.

    I actually had my lip pierced in august (labret stud) and it was interesting to see how quickly people's attitudes change to you just because you have a piercing. Apparently, if you have a piercing you must be some kind of thug.

    Personally, scarification and some of the more body extreme modifications aren't for me but it doesn't mean that i think theyr'e wrong or sick etc etc.

    I have a job interview at M&S for some temp work during uni later today. It should be interesting to see what they make of it seeing as their policy actually allows descreet facial piercing.

    I'm just checking, you do realise I was agreeing with you right? Sorry if I've caused grief this early on a Monday!

    people look at you as if you were some kind of paedo

    if i want to look like a viking
    (albeit a balding one)
    then so be it
    and you can all bloody well sod off

    neb

    ps: plus i've got the tats & scars from a bout of SH/depression some years back
    took out the piercings when my daughter was born - when i was a child i thought like a child etc - plus was scared she'd rip em off thinking they were toys!!!
