How to Use the Forum

The Painful Pleasures forum is an active online community of body mod enthusiasts, collectors, artists, and educators. We welcome all who are interested in any form of body modification, from piercings to tattoos, scarification to implants, tongue splitting to subincisions and beyond. Whether you're exploring modification options, doing research before getting a particular body mod, looking to share your experiences, or want to help others on their body mod journeys, our forum's for you!

How to Use the Gallery

The Painful Pleasures body mod gallery consists of thousands of photos of tattoos, piercings and more unusual mods that our community members have chosen to share. Although most photos in our gallery are of our community members' own mods, you'll also find that a number of piercing and tattoo artists have created portfolios here to showcase the cool mods they've given others.
