Response to J-J's Body Modifications post

J-J's Post:

I personally believe that body modifications are fine, such as the simple tattoo or piercings. It is when it goes to the extreme like where people implant studs into beneath their skins for horns, or split their tongue is where I would draw the line. They obviously casted themselves out of society by doing such alterations. I mean, if that guy in the picture you embeded walked around the streets, all the 'normal' people would stare at him, maybe laugh, maybe cower in fear or even start to get abusive towards him. And what he gonna be like when he older? Surely he will regret it but because it is so extreme, he cannot revert his bodily features back to the way it was before without paying even more for surgery. So, to be honest, I really do not know why anyone would want to go to the extreme unless they want to be hardcore rebels.

But in some cases, isn't castration a form of body modification?
