Is there one animal that defines you? What about the lion for its courage, or the bear for its strength—maybe it’s the cheetah for its speed?
We often use make-up, clothes and hair styles to guide how we want the outside world to view us. Sometimes we take this practice to the next level. Females pierced their ears lobes and later, men followed suit. Men got tattoos and woman followed suit, then both sexes expanded beyond ear lobes to… just about everywhere!
Perhaps the next level of self-expression is body modification. People are visiting establishments where there are technicians who insert devices beneath the skin to create this new body art. One man who performs these procedures on “patients” manufactures his own tools because there are few medical instruments that satisfy his surgical needs. Of course, as with piercings and tattoos there is a wide range of personal expression using body modification. Check out this video to see how one man chose to combine piercings, tattoos and body modification.
So, if you could wear a symbol, special tattoo, or piece of artwork on your forehead for one day, what would you choose to define yourself to the world?
