Adventures in Body Modification

Filed under: modification — williamthecoroner @ 15:48

One of my forensic interests is body modification.  It is interesting to see how people modify/adorn their bodies, and why.  I think some modifications can give you useful information.  Amongst many Central and South American immigrants who live on Cleveland’s near west side, girls get their ears pierced very early.  Some show up to their six week post-partum check with pierced ears.

Tattooing a one year old, however, is not accepted in Ohio, as THIS PERSON found out.  Hat tip, Strings.
