Most of us know how to use photoshop programs (some of us a little too well), so how do you tell if what you’re seeing is real. Here we examine some of the neatest, most hilarious, and provocative piercing and tattoo photos on the web and find out if they’re fact, or just clever fakes.
The USB Piercing
Anyone who feels like they’re permanently connected to Facebook probably laughed about the irony the first time they saw this picture, but did someone really get multiple custom microdermal implants to make themselves appear to be a cyborg?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. When you look at this picture closely, you can see a slight differentiation in color and texture just around the ports themselves. Plus, the skin ridges or “rims” around the two headphone jacks are a little to perfect to be real human flesh. It’s even easier to see when you invert the image.
And finally, all it takes is another visit to our friends at Worth1000 to figure out that this is a photoshopped picture that was submitted to them.
Although it would be absolutely amazing, noone has been implanted with a fake USB port. At least, not yet.
