Body modifications

Today I went to the hairdresser's. The girl cutting my hair had stretched earlobes, chin piercing and a tattoo on her arm. These things, of course, are common. Hearing of "body modifications", I suppose you think of tattooing, piercing, earlobe stretching, breast implant, tightlacing, genital circumcision, foot binding, neck ring... 
As a matter of fact, there are a lot more types you might not have heard about, or at least most of these are pretty new to me. Click the links below. 

Ear shaping
Tongue splitting
Corneal tattooing
Genital beading
Horn implant
Transdermal implant
Subdermal implant
Scarification

Erik Sprague, or the Lizardman

Dennis Avner, or Stalking cat 

*sigh* 

I don't understand these people. 
Any thoughts?
