Skinflaps

where Victoria hides her REAL secrets

Picture two side-by-side skin surface piercings -- on the back, for instance. (Four in a diamond configuration would also work nicely.)

Weights suspended from these piercings can gradually stretch and elongate the skin into long flaps.

The flaps can be fastened together with the piercings like a hook and eye closure.

What will you conceal behind your skinflaps? A tattoo of...
your secret middle name?
your last will and testament?
your most intimate and sordid desires?
a map to Dryland?

You decide!

       Skinflaps could be used by women on the chest to make their own selfskin bikini. Feels like you're wearing nothing but your own skin!   

       "I wonder what she looks like under them skinflaps!"

       I want a skin mask so I can sleep at work and stuff. But, seeing as that would look ridiculous unless everyone else did it, I'm going to interpret this as a 'let's all' and neutralize.
daseva, Jul 01 2006
  

       What?! "Let's all"? I am not suggesting we should ALL get skinflaps. It's just a new bodmod concept that is ripe for exploration.   

       Gumbob, you could get some above your ears and use 'em as earmuffs or an eyemask. They'd be warm too, since due to the location, they'd be covered with hair.
nihilo, Jul 01 2006
  

       It would look like a tumor. Or some other disgusting skin-thing-disorder.
Letsbuildafort, Jul 01 2006
  

       it's baked ! - there are multiple links to extreme piercings...
xenzag, Jul 01 2006
  

       What will you conceal? This is one way of reversing circumcision. It's called "epispasm," and was practiced by Jews in Rome who wanted to fit in.
ldischler, Jul 01 2006
  

       fit in where?
po, Jul 01 2006
  

       Society. The Roman baths were a big deal. Nudity was normal, but exposing the head of the penis was considered vulgar.
ldischler, Jul 01 2006
  

       tsk, subtlety will be my downfall or is it my straight face?
po, Jul 01 2006
  

       I knew what you really meant, and that was part of fitting into society, for sure.
ldischler, Jul 01 2006
  

       Yes. Let's all get skinflaps! po, you go one way, I'll go the other. We'll box 'em in! Pile on!
RayfordSteele, Jul 01 2006
  

       //tsk, subtlety will be my downfall or is it my straight face// Po-faced?
AbsintheWithoutLeave, Jul 01 2006
  

       [skinflaps], mate, hold this for us, will ya?
Dub, Jul 01 2006
  

       "skinflaps" *is* my secret middle name.
moomintroll, Jul 02 2006
  

       Not any longer it isn't.
wagster, Jul 02 2006
  

       Well, I'm sure somewhere on rotten.com you can find pictures of ladies that have a skinflap bikini bottom...
ye_river_xiv, Jul 02 2006
  

       [moomintroll] What, as in [moom[sk]in[flaps]troll]?
Dub, Jul 03 2006
  

       Baked. Fat people already have these.
MoreCowbell, Jul 12 2006
  

       Wrong: those are called "fat rolls". It's like the difference between a crepe and a creampuff.
I don't wanna hear anyone cry "baked" until they post a link to a photo of some actual skinflaps.
nihilo, Jul 12 2006
  

       baked ! again - see link.
xenzag, Jul 12 2006
  

       baked- this is a common prison trick... this is a good for smuggling stuff in if you know ahead of time that your going away baked-kangaroos
tatmkr, Jul 12 2006
  

       Corset piercing is to skinflaps what webbed toes are to bat wings.   

       Where's the picture, [Xen]? Surely there must be one if skinflaps are baked. I'll be waiting for Amazon to deliver for weeks.   

       Sewing things under your skin is not the same as the skinflaps concept, [tat]. And kangaroos don't have skinflaps, they have pouches. Skinpockets might have been invented by marsupials, but I don't think kangaroos are into piercing.
nihilo, Jul 12 2006
  

       I don't know why you guys all hate this. I mean, Nudist Pocket got a decent reception, and it's just as stupid and twice as gross. A least [nihilo] isn't slicing people open and putting in latex.
notmarkflynn, Jul 12 2006
  

       Not yet, anyway.
Speaking of which, isn't latex organic... but IT melts?
nihilo, Jul 12 2006
  

       Very funny.   

       *snort*
skinflaps, Oct 16 2007
  

       Look, there he is! Pile on!
RayfordSteele, Oct 16 2007
  

       The Corset Piercings look very nice.... and pain-ful!
