I use four types of body modification frequently in my work.

Micro-branding: Using a small metal needle and small stainless steel strikes to create large imagery which may or may not fade over time depending on depth, skin type, and family genetics.

Temporary piercings: These include hubbed and non hubbed hypodermic needles, sutures, surgical staples, and hooks.

Bondage: Using rope and other media, sometimes decorative, and sometimes a setting in itself.

Pressings: Applying an object to the skin surface for a period of time and then removing the object to create an elaborate but very temporary texture in the skin.
