Head Split

Filed under: Extreme Mods

Dear BME,

Thank you for providing an online community for people interested in body modification. The information and images on your website are very helpful.

Currently I have a 8-gauge Reverse Prince Albert. I wish to split my penis glans from the tip to the fistula that has grown over the last 1.5years. My question is ” What is it like living with a split head? (Pissing, Sex)” and “Is it a bad idea to only split the glans half way?”.



Splitting the top side of the glans (as opposed tot he more common lower side split aka meatotomy) is a difficult procedure to perform as well as to heal. Just keep in mind, it is nowhere near as DIY friendly as the meatotomy. That being said, if done by an experienced practitioner there is no reason no to go for it, if you are so inclined.

As far as living with a split head, it’s not going to be too bothersome. In fact, I would guess this will be easier for urination then the reverse PA you currently have. As for sex, it’s generally considered enjoyable for the person with it and either enjoyable or not noticeable by their partner. As with any genital mod, it can be shocking to some more vanilla partners and quite possibly could be a deal breaker, but who wants to sleep with someone that dull anyhow?

Off Center Apadravya

Tuesday December 14th, 2010 @ 4:13 PM

Filed under: Male Genital

I recently got my Apadravya done and I noticed that it was off-center by just a bit. Now the reason it is off is because I had a Prince Albert before and decided to get the Apadravya done.

My question is this, will natural stretching eventually lead to the piercing to being centered, I will stretch to at most a 2-0ga. If it cannot be fixed by stretching, is there another way to fix it other than waiting for it heal, and having it redone?

Stretching the piercing will not center it, because you are stretching it equally in all directions. However, it may very well make it appear to be more centered aesthetically.

Your other option, is scalpelling it a bit to redirect the stretch more towards the center. This might be a good option if the off center part is ONLY on the lower side (where the PA was), if it’s off center on the top as well I wouldn’t suggest the scalpelling.

Your best bet (as usual) is to find a reputable experienced piercer and get yourself a personal consultation.

When will my 3-D subdermal implant show?

Tuesday December 14th, 2010 @ 4:08 PM

Filed under: Implants


I got a 3-D heart implant in my chest. The implant is 2 inches & 5/16 thick. I was wondering how long it would take for it to fully show. Thanks!

Generally speaking with subdermal implants once the swelling has settled down they are about as defined as they ever will be. 5/16″ is not very thick, especially for the skin on your chest, I am afraid it might not become any more defined than it is now.

Is this a sign of mastisis or skin irritation? (pics included)

Saturday December 4th, 2010 @ 10:42 AM

Filed under: Nipple

I originally got my nipples pierced July 29th (almost 4 months) I’ve cleaned regularly with H2Ocean spray & have had no problem. A couple of days ago I noticed my piercings became itchy. Than they sort of became dry & I noticed it only is dry & itchy near the top of the areola & not near the barbells or fistulas. In the pic you can see its sort of red and irritated at the top of the areola. So is this an infection, mastisis, or just a simple irritation. Keep in mind the cold is starting to come in & maybe I just need to moisturize? I don’t know. Please help!!

Is your piercing, like, a mile-and-a-half back into your areola, or is it just that picture? I can’t even tell from that picture. The placement looks incredibly shonky to me!

I’m never super keen to play Amazing Kreskin Internet Diagnosis games, to be honest, my advice is to go see a GOOD piercer - maybe not your original piercer, if your piercing placement is as much of a barrel of wonkies as it looks to me - and ask them what they think. I will say that it doesn’t SOUND infected as such, and that it’s probably just a normal healing nipple piercing thing - a good chamomile soak and some emu oil may well be the very thing to settle your piercing down. But if YOU (original poster and all of our many readers) think your nipple piercing might be infected, PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT ASK THE INTERNET - mastitis is no joke. Go get it looked at ASAP!

Offered discount due to reaction–etiquette?

Saturday December 4th, 2010 @ 10:40 AM

Filed under: Tattoos

I got a tattoo in maroon ink (back of hand/inside of wrist) a bit less than a year ago from a shop/artist that I respect. Unfortunately, I had a reaction which pushed out some of the ink leaving hollow lines, thickened some lines, and left pock marks on the back of my hand. The artists at the shop were exceedingly helpful in providing advice for how to help it heal over the next 5 months. Although I told them I knew it wasn’t the artist’s fault and that I expected nothing from them, the owner told me that if I wanted something done in the future they would gladly do it discounted/for free. I have a new design (in black!) I would like to add on to the original tattoo; would it be rude to remind them about the offer? Or would it be seen as just that–a reminder?

Thanks! Katie

I think it was excellent service for the shop owner to look after you so well and offer you a discount/free tattoo in the future due to an issue that was in no way the artist’s fault - ink reactions are VERY common! I can’t see why it would at all be considered rude to remind them of that when you organise your appointment for new work.

Getting tattooed abroad?

Saturday December 4th, 2010 @ 10:34 AM

Filed under: Tattoos


I hope you can give me some advice, me and my boyfriend are planning on taking a holiday in Thailand next year, and part of that is because we want to get some proper traditional hand-poked tattoos while we are there. But how do we go about it? We haven’t booked it yet because we don’t know if there is certain areas of Thailand that are more prominent for the tattooing scene, or if its an all round thing. And I’m guessing we can’t really research studios… how do we know where is a good place? Do people normally choose a place before they go or do they find something when they get there? Do they actually work out of studios or will it be a little man in a hut? We just don’t know where to start!!

Any help or advice would be brilliant!

Love Hetty

Most of the studios I’ve seen in Thailand use modern tattoo machines, but the temples do the sak yant hand-tapped tattoos. I’m not at all an expert on getting tattooed in Thailand, the person to ask is probably Ron Garza orJohn Durante. I did find about forty billion relevant links from Googling “Thailand tattooing monks”, heh.

Filed under: Tattoos

I’m quite sure this is not the right place to post my question, but I don’t know where else to try…

I’m going mad trying to find the rest of this tattoo; the watermark quotes bmezine.com, maybe you know it. I’ve already writtent to Shannon Larratt on Facebook, but he doesn’t answer…



I don’t know who the owner of this tattoo is, but maybe a reader will recognise her and comment. Anyone? Anyone? Beuller? Beuller?
