I just want you guys to know that this guy is alive somewhere living his life with a giant American flag face tattoo.
And there was an artist that thought this was a good idea.
Nostril piercings helping him to breathe after 15 years of not breathing properly through his nose
At 60 years of age, this professional sculptor and artisan has already lived a colourful life. After a severe motorcycle accident, he required reconstructive surgery to his face; the following years of failed nasal repair surgeries and a broken nose from his rowdy political activism left this man with a large amount of scar tissue within his nose - his septum had all but ‘collapsed’. This prominent scar tissue blocked a significant amount of his lower nasal passage and left him unable to breathe through his nose. He has spent the past 15 years struggling with breathing, sleep apnea, heavy exercise or strenuous activities, and even eating.
After consulting many doctors and being told that there was simply “nothing [they] could do”, he came to us with the idea of bypassing the collapsed passage by creating a hole either side of his nose which would be large enough for him to breathe through. While large-gauge nostril piercings are nothing new to body modification enthusiasts, the idea that this piercing could be functional and so practical in this particular case was a very interesting prospect.
Yet again, body mod as a form of healing.
Check it out: [breast cancer], [hearing impairment], and [arthritis] can all be fought with body modification, whether it’s ancient medicine or modern science calling the shots!
Can you believe people still think this is self mutilation?
Hey remember that one time Pam was kidnapped and beat the shit out of everyone because she paid for college as a pro MMA fighter?
