Ryoichi "Keroppy" Maeda is a photographer and journalist who's been obsessively documenting the underground rise in popularity of Japanese extreme body modification for the last 20 years. Obviously, it's now huge there – though apparently body modification is still somewhat of a taboo, with journalists who choose to cover it usually doing so at the risk of their own careers.
Ryoichi "Keroppy" Maeda: I started reporting on it in 1992 while I was working for Nyan 2 Club, which was a small Japanese magazine that focused more on the extreme side of body modification.
So it was just the usual, tame piercing and tattooing that people get nowadays all around the world? It is, but there's a big difference between traditional Japanese tattoos and Western-style tattoos.
Well, actually, I happened to meet Jerome, who was the person who pioneered saline infusions, at Modcon in 1999. It's quite easy - we use medical saline solution and using infusion we pump it into the forehead for about two hours, or until it's ready. Oh, you just press your thumb in to the middle of the forehead while the saline is being pumped in, and that creates the donut, bagel effect.
In your opinion, are saline infusions the most extreme thing happening in the Japanese body modification scene at the moment?
Well, you know, people who like extreme body modification want to find their own way of doing things, and they're always looking for new ways to do that.
As part of whisky brand Ballantine’s "Leave an Impression" campaign, Paris-based tattoo artist Karl Marc seared a QR code onto his friend Marco's chest. Marc says the whisky company approached him and asked if he would be interested in executing the tattoo — a QR code that unlocked an animation when scanned — via a live stream on the brand's Facebook Page. You're probably wondering if the tat is fake — after all, that Facebook friend tattoo turned out to be an advertising campaign, as did the Ray-Ban tattoo. Marc says he's been getting a lot of requests lately for QR code tats, and he told us that he will be working with a company called MIYU productions on more ink of this ilk.
What got you into tattoos? I’ve always been really fascinated by them, as I grew up all my friends were older than me, and I remember them all rushing out to get them.


Where did your inspiration come from for this tattoo? I always say that this tattoo is a way of saying “haters to the left”, without actually saying it. Is there any artists you would like to get tattooed by? I’d love one of Annie Frenzel’s women one day – it would mean a trip to Berlin, too, which would be lovely.

He also happens to be the man responsible for bringing the bubbly saline injection-based forehead look to Japan. I had a chat with Ryoichi to try to help me understand why people are choosing to inject themselves with fluids in order to temporarily change their appearance. Then I moved to Burst magazine in 1995, which was the first magazine to really inform Japanese readers on a larger scale about tattooing, piercing, and body modification. The more extreme stuff started to trickle in once the internet came around in like, 96 or 97. I got my nipple pierced in 1992 and wrote the first article for the Japanese market about piercing, then I got a tattoo in LA in 1995 and wrote the first article about tattooing. In the early 90s it was mostly just Yakuza, the Japanese mafia, getting traditional tattoos and at that point there wasn't enough information coming in about modern tattooing and piercing. Modcon is an extreme body modification convention and it just happened to come to Japan that year so I went to cover it for Burst.
Everyone I know who has done it, no matter how many times, their skin has gone back to exactly how it was before. I've only done my forehead, but people at my parties have tried the scrotal infusions before. We have suspension parties every couple of months and saline parties probably about twice a year, but people do have infusions done and then go out to clubs and fetish parties and things like that. I've read reports of people colouring the infusions as well but I don't think there's any truth to those claims, it must be the way the light is shining on someone in the photo, or something. Navel removal is taking the navel off the body, and amputation is where people cut off their fingers, or something like that.


The more progressive the scene gets, the more these people have to experiment and go their own way. The brand is doing similar events with other artists, from ice sculptors to graffiti artists.

As I said, it was when the internet came that young people started to accept the Western style more and more and that's when the more extreme side of body modification started to get popular in Japan. I got talking to Jerome and we stayed in contact, then eventually I experienced saline with him in 2003 and he gave me permission to bring it to Japan, so I set up a team in Tokyo to administer infusions for other people. But since I was about 16, there’s been a folder of tattoo inspiration and a growing list of artists  I love on my computer. I’m aiming to start my inner bicep soon I think, but I realise this’ll probably spread to cover the top of my arm. I also love Rachel Jamie Baldwin’s work and Guen Douglas – another nice little European trip to Amsterdam there, too (Guen is moving from Brighton to Amsterdam in September). There's no hidden viral agenda here: Ballantine's hosted the live stream of the process on its brand page. I do aim towards the more traditional style, but recently I am finding myself reaching for the more fluid styles of artists like Amanda Wachob. I am very much in love with this tattoo – the font blows my mind and it came out better than I’d ever have expected.
I don’t believe they have to be something that means the world to you – they usually just remind me of a good time.
