Tutorial: How To Post A Mod
This tutorial was created by v4climber. Thanks! - .: Adam

Howdy, this is a tutorial on how to correctly post a body modification and also how to post additional photos of the same mod. On the front page, you will see an area called "Quicklinks" (Diagram 1.1)


(diagram 1.1)

Left click on "+ Add My Mods!" and you will be taken to the next screen called "Add Your Mod To BodyMod.org!" (Diagram 1.2)


(diagram 1.2)

In this step you choose the type of body mod it is by clicking on "Body Modification Type: {Piercing }{ v }". If it is a piercing, select piercing, a tattoo, choose tattoo, if it is a hardcore then choose hardcore. Some examples of hardcore mods are scarification, branding, suspension, etc. After choosing the type of mod that you are posting, choose whether it is a photograph or a video by clicking on "Upload Type: { Photo }{ v } ". After choosing the type of modification and the type of file you are uploading, click on " { Next-> }" and you will be taken to the next screen which is Step 2 (Diagram 1.3).



In this step you choose the type of the mod, for this example I have chosen piercing. For the tutorial I am posting a picture of an ear diagram, but keep in mind that if your mod falls into more categories choose the additional ones, but only if it falls into those categories. (Ex. It may be a Tongue piercing and also a Mess Up, you would select both categories, but wouldn't choose Genital piercing.) NOTE: Not all types need to have something selected.

After choosing what type the mod is, a name for the mod needs to be chosen, usually something that describes the mod instead of simply saying "My Piercing!!!" Good names are "14g lobe piercing, 5th hole"

After deciding on the name that you want, you upload the photo, keep in mind that it MUST be 5 megabytes or less in size (If you don't know how big it is and are on windows, right click on it and choose properties, on linux seek help from your distro, on macintosh press Command + i to view the information of the selected file) and must be a JPEG (Can use the same methods to determine that).

The image caption is where you give a more personal name to the piercing, or set the tone for the details, such as: "My 21st birthday present!" For this example I used "Making a Tutorial - Ear Chart"

After that you may add the artist and the studio by clicking on "Enter the Artist!" or "Enter the Studio!"

For the final step on this screen you may add additional details about your modification such as how the process was and whether the piercer was nice, if you passed out, how the piercing is healing, etc. Many times I list the type and size of the jewelry used in the mod or the story behind why I got it. After you are happy with everything click on { Add It > } to go to the next screen which is BodyMod.org's homepage.

How to add additional photos:

On the homepage, hover over { * My BMod! } and select "My Mods" (Diagram 1.4) which will bring you to your mod page, it contains thumbnails of all your mods that you have posted so far. Find and click on your mod's thumbnail (Diagram 1.5) and it will take you to the mod's screen (Diagram 1.6)
