Kevlar thumbless mittens

Mittens for DIY Bod Mod enthusiasts

Been looking at some particularly interesting pics on SteakAndCheese and BME.

Having a pierced knob (amongst other bits) I'm particularly interested in Bod Mods, Tats, Piercing etc.

HOWEVER...

Some of these people are hammering six inch nails through their own nuts, and using extra sharp scissors to cut their dicks in half and stuff...

So I'm proposing that certain people are fitted with kevlar thumbless mittens in an effort to stop some of these people being able to use scissors - this may be a bit of a handicap for those who are also nursery school teachers and who need to cut bits of paper up on a regular basis (and of course Andersen staff too!)

Help these people to help themselves!

       Or, just say no to insurance and let the money speak.   

       I know of a young lady who had self mutilated her arms so often and so irreparably that even after she finally qualified for skin grafting she ripped off the grafts before her body accepted them. She would also shove pencils into her appendix scar and so on. She was fitted with a wrist-to-knee full body kevlar suit with back laces and was forced to wear it for two years.   

       She's probably glad to be whole, just to know who cares.

       Is this frequently the first fact about yourself you reveal to a new gathering of mixed company? Remind me not to invite you to a dinner party.   

       TMI.

       fishbone, but alleviated by the phrase "DIY Bod Mod", which is strangely appealing. (the phrase, not the activity). So I stay neutral. And unmodified.

       I was thinking this would be a scheme to allow one to catch bullets, and it seemed to me omission of thumb armor was a grave oversight. But rather than naked in the breeze, the author intends the thumb to be within the mitten, which makes it something other than a mitten in my book, but maybe better for catching bullets - a thumb only snag might be tough on the joints.   

       A smaller garment of this make might have been good for this author a little farther south.
