German body artist Joel Miggler resembles zombie with flesh tunnels in his cheeks

An extreme body artist has taken piercing to a hole new level after creating giant flesh tunnels in his cheeks.

Pictured blowing smoke through his newly acquired modifications, Joel Miggler, 23, from Küssaberg, Germany, began experimenting with body modifications at the tender age of 13.

Since then, he has acquired a grand total of 27 different piercings, as well as six tattoos, an implant and has even had his buttock branded.

His obsession with body modifications first began after stretching his earlobes and has now spent over £4,000 altering his body.

As his piercings became more and more extreme, Mr Miggler eventually had two huge 36mm holes created into the side of his cheeks but plans to eventually stretch them to 40mm.

But despite his extreme look, he insists that his tunnels do not affect his daily life and instead simply takes smaller bites when eating.

Luckily, his mother is very supportive of his decision to change his body, but he does admit that she is not too fond of his cheek tunnels.

It also seems that having huge holes in your cheeks doesn't create any problems when it comes to his love life and has been dating an artist and body piercer for over six months.

The public's response to Joel's bizarre modifications seems to be pleasant overall, apart from a wave of negative response from the online community and social media channels, people either simply stare at him or occasionally stop him to ask questions.

The perfect Father's Day present for Wills! Portrait out of TOBLERONE!

The Royal family are rather used to sitting for portraits but the Duke of Cambridge might be a tad surprised by the latest recreation of his and his son's likeness.

A giant chocolate portrait of the royal pair has been unveiled to mark William's first Father's Day as a Dad.

The piece was created by food artist Michelle Wibowo from Michelle Sugar Art, using a staggering 16,074 individual triangles of Toblerone.

It took more than 1,500 bars of the iconic shaped chocolate bar using dark, milk and white chunks to create depth and dimension.

The art work measures an enormous 12ft x 8ft and weights a staggering 154kg.

The full creation took Michelle more than 100 hours of planning, preparation and construction.

Chloe Dickey creates stunning sculptures using beaches

A young woman with a passion for art has begun using the beach as her blank canvas and is creating beautiful designs in the process.

But Chloe Dickey's sand sculptures aren't like the usual dolphin and turtle designs that are etched into beaches, she uses patterns and geometrical shapes to express herself.

The 24-year-old from Lake Cathie, NSW, works in the wet sand at low tide meaning her drawings don't stick around for long when the waves roll in.

Chloe only got into sand sketching by accident after she saw a story online and thought her art would translate well onto the sand.

Illuminated UV paintings on women's backs celebrate beauty

In a project which marries the beauty of the female form with spectacular scenes from nature, an artist has created stunning UV images on women's backs.

John Poppleton, from California, creates incredible works of art painted directly onto human skin using fluorescent shades of lilac, orange and green and then photographs them with stunning results.

His project, called Under Black Light, consists of 'bodyscapes' of spectacular natural phenomena such as African sunsets, tropical oceans during rainstorm, and mountain ranges under moonlight.

In more otherworldly, eerie designs the artist depicts cosmic scenes of stars, galaxies and shimmering auroras.

His gorgeous painterly scenes are photographed under black light to produce the seemingly glowing images.

John incorporates the curves and shapes of the models into his paintings, and in some the canvas is stretches beyond the back of the model onto the background behind.

The artist dabbled in photography as a hobby until several friends convinced him to photograph their weddings in 1993. He then became a professional portrait photographer as has flourished in the industry for more than 20 years.

Kori no Suizokukan, the Frozen Aquarium in Japan

Kori no Suizokukan is an aquarium in Japan with a twist – all the tanks and fish are frozen rock solid.

Fish and other sea creatures are frozen into solid cubes with a technique called flash freezing before being placed in the aquarium. Flash-freezing allows the specimens to look lifelike for longer.

The aquarium is kept at extremely low temperatures. Certain areas are kept at an icy -20 degrees Celsius. Visitors have to wear special suits to keep them warm.




Simple life in Manhattan: A 90-square-foot home


The average size of the American home is shrinking -- it dropped in both 2008 and 2009 after 15 straight years of growth -- but most of us are still living larger than people in the Big Apple. Home size in Manhattan is about half the national average.

One New Yorker has taken her love of frugal living to the extreme. Felice Cohen’s apartment measures just 90 square feet, but she doesn’t see it as a sacrifice. With such a small space, she pays just $700 to live in a part of town where rents average $3,600 per month.



Her kitchen consists of a toaster oven, hot pot, and mini fridge, but she claims her backyard is larger than average: “I look out my window, and it’s New York City. I mean, that’s my backyard. Central Park is a block away. I can go into the park. I have Lincoln Center. I have libraries. I have gyms all over the place. Sometimes, I feel like you’re in college, and it’s a huge campus, and you can take advantage of everything you want to take advantage of.” Learn how Felice organizes her 90-square-foot home.

Granted, Cohen had a bit of a panic attack the first night in her apartment when she woke up in the loft bed with the ceiling 23 inches from her face, but she’s grown accustomed to the small space. Now when she goes back to her childhood home, she misses her apartment’s coziness:

“I think a lot of people have a lot of space that they’re not using. I grew up in a place where my bedroom was 17 feet by 17 feet with two walk-in closets that combined were almost the size of this apartment ... when I go home now, I go in the closet just to feel like I’m back in New York.”

Cinemagraph: Still Photos with Subtle Motion
