Body Art!

So, this is about Body art.
Dreadlocks, implants, scarifications, stretching, tattoos, piercing, branding.
It's about decorating your body to fit your soul, pleasuring your Self.

Please, read the rules!

* 1 submission a day, member only.

* Pay attention to folders! Submissions to wrong folders will be declined.

* The accepted media is Photography, except for the Tattoo Design folder, which is for traditional and digital drawings and paintings.

* DON'T double post! Check your correspondence folder often, and withdraw any double posting. ALL double posts will be declined.

* "Tattoo Design" folder is ONLY for drawings/paintings with tattoo motives.

* Photography MUST SHOW REAL modification! You will have had to bleed for it, felt the pain.

* Don't submit similar pieces - choose one that you like best.
Too much similarities will result in your submissions being declined.

* Submissions where piercings, tattoos, dreadlocks, scarifications or implants are NOT THE MAIN THEME of the image, will be declined.
A full body portrait and the model is pierced in the eyebrow, hardly visable, won't be accepted.
Dreadlocks works in such portraits of course, but I hope you get what I mean.

* NO breast or penial enlargement implants! Only decorative implants.

* Any submissions that are out of focus will be declined. Images should be crisp, clear, sharp.
I might accept if the the focus is just slightly out, if it's not noticed it right away - that is if i really like the picture otherwise, like angles, or composition, or something. but don't count on that!
So please, NO BLURRED images.

* Make sure that also your traditional works, like drawings and paintigs are well scanned or photographed.

* Please, no scraps or unfinished works. High quality is what I'm after. No "snap-shot" pictures will be accepted, please, put some artistic effort in your work.

* Make sure your images are not blurry, too grainy/noisy, not too dark or too light, well composed, well thought through, not having distracting areas/objects that draws the focus from the main modification in the image.
Submit what is truly your best work!

How to join:

Click the "Join our group" button. In the request message box, make sure that you write somethings like this: "I have read and understood the rules, and I will follow them".

Joining requests without this message wont be accepted

Why do I want this? Because some people don't even care what kind of groups they join. I have had completely wrong submissions to this group, pictures that doesn't have ANY element of body modification in them!

Dear all :heart: 

I want to point you to a project initiated by JakezDaniel and supported by Nature-Abstracted 
Please read here an excerpt from Stéphanes journal. The original journal you find here: Ebola

"You have been a lot to answer to my journal, I thank you very much. Many of you have shared this journal, it has gone to facebook too... I hope you will keep on on spreading the word. We need a lot of artists and works on this. We will ask a group of you to help us on the selection of the images: photographs, paintings, drawings, collages, digital works... maybe some short poems in english.

We now have a group to help us with this project, so that we can propose works for this book to one of its gallery 


You can suggest your work to this gallery:

You don't need to be a member of the group for proposing a work and it doesn't need to be an abstract one. We would just ask you to put the group on your watch list so that you can follow news about the project.
By submitting you works, please remember that high resolution files (2000x2000pixels at 300ppi should be enough) will be asked if the work is selected."

I want to thank 
Stéphane for his initialization, energy and persistence :heart:
