Rules of the Photo Gallery

    We welcome photos of your piercing(s), tattoo(s) and/or other body mod(s), but we'd prefer that you post them in our Photo Gallery. In particular, mature photos are ONLY allowed to be published in the gallery. Such photos are not allowed in the forum because this is an all-ages forum and we have no way to block under-aged community members from viewing mature content here. Gallery users over the age of 18 with valid accounts may log in to view mature content, which protects innocent eyes from seeing mature photos on our website.

    What constitutes mature content? Any pictures of female nipple piercings, male or female genitalia, adult toys in use, BDSM practices, and other nude photos are considered mature.

    What kind of mature content is allowed? Photos of pierced or tattooed nipples and/or genitalia are acceptable as long as the content is flagged as mature upon submission. For now, we also have a section for nude photos that do not feature mods. We will no longer approve overly sexually-explicit photos, though. Photos depicting sexual intercourse, oral sex, ejaculate, or other bodily fluids (with the exception of a little blood, since it's an inevitable part of the body mod processes) will NOT be approved!

    Please Note: You can only submit mature photos depicting individuals who are 18 years of age or older. If we learn that an individual pictured in our gallery is underage, any photos of that person will be deleted immediately. Additionally, when submitting mature photos of anyone other than yourself--even of your spouse or partner--you certify that you have first received the depicted person's explicit permission to post images of them in our gallery. If someone asks us to remove a photo posted without their authorization, we will do so immediately. Any poster found to be in violation of these rules may have their account suspended permanently.

    Why can't I see a photo I just uploaded? All photos must be approved by a moderator before being published. That way we can ensure that the content is an appropriate fit for our website and that it's been categorized properly. It may take 24-48 hours for your photo(s) to be approved and published. If several days pass and you still don't see your photos, it's probably because our moderators found them to be inappropriate for our website. In such cases, we do our best to contact the poster, but you can also reach out to any of the following moderators via private message if you want to confirm: Angel on the Edge, Dnd4evr, or Rainbird.

    Are there restrictions on profile pictures? Yes! Profile pictures may NOT include mature content. We can't flag profile photos as mature the way we can with other photos, so the only way we can protect innocent eyes is to disallow mature profile photos. Please be respectful of this rule. If a moderator contacts you and asks you to change your profile picture, please respond promptly to avoid having your account suspended.

    If you have any questions about the gallery not addressed here, please reach out to Angel on the Edge, Dnd4evr or Rainbird using the "Start a Conversation" feature in the forum. You may also post a thread with questions, particularly if you feel the answers would benefit other community members.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
