Crash DIY Penis Piercing (NSFW- Nudity)

A girl from work emailed me this photo to find out if it was real or not.

I think she got sick of me yelling at her for not checking snopes before emailing me crap . So we haven't quite gotten to the stage of her researching it herself but baby steps.



Do you think it's 'shopped?

My boss and I voted fake due to the lack of blood.

I'm terrible at picking up the photo shopping clues that are pointed out so I'd appreciate some expert opinions!

real photo, fake implied description. I'm guessing the guy already had a piercing and just stuck a drill bit through it. The drill end probably wouldn't be too comfortable going through a piercing, he might have put the chuck end through then put it in the drill.

I agree with kjbrasda: it is a guy with a healed piercing (looks to be a Prince Albert) with adrill bit through it. Pretty large gauge, which is less common in genital peircings, but not unheard of.

I have really gotten jaded. My first thought... yes, the veryfirst thought was.. "I hope he didn't get any splinters from that rough 2 x 4."

I was mostly wondering what kind of place you work at where a co-worker e-mails you a picture of some guy's jewels and you show it your boss. :P

A fairly relaxed one

We are a small firm and are fairly tight-knit, but we are still careful about who we send which forwards to. We don't assume everyone has the same sense of humour or attitude (especially when it comes to nudity or sex related jokes).

Well Photobucket certainly doesn't - all that's showing up now is a notice that your image breached their terms of service!

Hmm... Looks like a fleshcolored plastic cap to me not a real genital.

Oh boy has he got some explaining to do when his wife gets back.

"Honey, why aren't those shelves up yet? You promised you'd do it this afternoon."

Err, isn't it obviously fake because the torque of the turning drill bit would have made a spiral shape out of mr happy?

I'd say it's real, just posed. Drill some shavings out of a board, slip the smooth end of the bit through the prince albert piercing and then pop it back into the drill.

If you read much of the BMEzine (Body Modification E-magazine) blog you wouldn't be surprised in the least by this kind of weirdness.
