Body Modifications

Body modification is a common human characteristic. The imagination in body adornment and body transforming techniques is endless.

In recent decades new temporary and permanent modifications have gained popularity. Body piercing and tattooing have become the mainstream. Cosmetic tattoos, dermablading, permanent make-up and even esthetic surgery are considered as safe by the general population. Therapeutic applications of tattooing cover many indications. However, with all these procedures complications can arise and the risk/benefit ratio has to be considered.

The course will address the pro’s and contra’s of different body modifying methods. The participants (trainees only) are expected to contribute with case presentations related to the topic of the course. Special attention will be paid to the presentation skills with personalized feed-back.
