Kala Kaiwi Master of Tattoos and Modifications of the Body from the Hawaiian Islands, recently was able to set a guinness record for rings inserted into the earlobe with non -surgical way. Similar body modifications are also known as “tunnels”, and in this case, the diameter of the ring inserted into the lobe reaches 10.5 cm. Through such a ring you can freely stick your hand.
In addition to earlobes, Kaiwi changed almost every part of his body. Silicone “horns” are implanted in his forehead, his nostrils are stretched, a tattoo is applied on his eyebrows, “studs” are inserted throughout his face. There are also holes with threads for bolts on his forehead, and his tongue is separated in two with a dental thread. Kayvi studied the art of Body Art in Las Vegas, in 1999, and then he returned to Hawaii, and opened his own business there. But he began to do truly extreme things only a few years ago.
“You know, I started to engage in extreme modification of the body about two and a half years ago,” Kaiwi said. Most people today implant silicone implants, and Kayvi’s vast majority of implants are made of surgical steel and surgical Teflon. “Only my horns are made of silicone, all the spikes on the body are titanium, and the rest of the piercing is surgical steel”.
“The body modification today has become a kind of Mecca, you know, this is a large community of modified people. Previously, 10, 15 or 20 years ago, this would be considered something prohibited. And now it’s fashionable. More and more people begin to understand that if this is done properly, it is done in a safe place and in a sterile environment, then this is no different from the operation to enlarge the breast, or to implant implants into the cheeks ”.
Kayvi says that modification of the body is a creative act for him. He also predicts that this art in the future can become even more extreme, and will receive its own rights as a new subculture. “Something always happens, and more extreme things are always invented”.
Although, according to Kayvi, “extreme things” are a relative concept. “For a normal person, the piercing of the language will already be considered extreme. And for the one who has worked for several years in the field of body modification, the piercing of the language is the ordinary norm. He is just the evolution of body art “.
