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 modified people, dear members and dear watchers,

I want to take the chance to say hello as being the new founder and give a little introduction to myself, so you know who I am :-)

First, huge thanks to Ina, who has built a wonderful and high quality group of body modifications. I'm quite glad she had the trust in me to adopt her group.

The important thing for you is, that the rules will not be changed. I do not want to decrease the quality and the seriousness behind the joining process.

Now some words about myself.
I'm staying at dA for now nearly two years. At the beginning more with the aim to show my own works and slowly I became in different groups a staff member, what's a great chance to learn a lot. Last year I've decided to open my own group and now I'm founder/co-founder of some groups .... all of them are special and for me Modify-my-Mind is a quite unique one in the field of modification. Not only because I like to see great mods but because it mirrors my personal interests. I'm also tattooed and this project takes now just six years. Working title is "Garden of Eden" ... and if you know my photography, it's obvious that there is seen nature. The upper part of my body is finished and the thights are also nearly finished.

Some years ago I've also got my experience with different piercings, stretching ... some have survived, some not :-)

So I hope you have now an idea who I am and hope to see us sharing many amazing modifications.

Have a wonderful time :sun:
