If you thought piercing your nose was extreme, this is going to blow you mind.
A guy named Daniel decided to get a piercing between his Achilles tendon and his ankle:
The Achilles piercing is, according to BME’s wiki, “extremely rare, it is real, and healed examples do exist.” However, it’s possible that this piercing could prevent you from walking again.
“Don’t do this. It’s incredibly dangerous and possibly crippling. The risks involved are astronomical, and can easily result in any number of serious and permanent injuries if attempted.” – Body-Mod Fanzine BME
