Body Modification

2009 February 3

The National Geographic Channel is full of examples of extreme body modifications and of how sometimes these modifications are gendered (and how sometimes they are not). It shows the details of some things that are not normally seen on television. We do have a biased view of the world and it is hard to understand how others cultures function. I’ve posted these videos to provide a little variety to what sort of body modifications are done around the globe.
Albeit, these are biased videos and from a U.S. centered point-of-view. However they give a unique look at different cultures around the globe.
*Warning* If you are squeamish, you might want to skip these videos!

Rings of brass used to elongate the neck

Corsets used to mold incredibly thin waists

Full body tattoos

    Wow, I can’t decide which one of these causes the most pain.

    Also, I had no idea men too wear corsets for small waists!
