MODIFY is a movie about having the right to do whatever you want to your own body. This film stars Fakir Musafar, Jim Ward, Masuimi Max, Steve Haworth, Stalking Cat, and dozens of procedures in stunning two-camera detail, from tanning, waxing, bodybuilding and tattoos to plastic surgery, trans-gender surgery, suspension, and scarification.


All of us know we should not pre-judge others, not to judge a book by its cover. Does this feeling of acceptance apply to people who modify their body beyond what is normal? Extreme is relative to perception. It is human nature to fear what we do not understand. What is ‘normal’?

Everyone modifies their body in one form or another to help show on the outside how they feel on the inside.

Using entirely original music, including over forty never before heard songs from more than twenty new artists, this original groundbreaking documentary hits the screen rockin’ right from the start.

For the first time ever, in their own words, the finest, most well spoken, talented, surgeons, piercers, tattooists, cutters, body artists, and pioneers of body modification in the United States, show & tell it all in the Committed Films motion picture ‘MODIFY’.

You will meet more than thirty of the most amazing modified people that have ever lived, and the body artists that have changed them forever. The cast and crew of modify traveled the United States and have filmed more than fifty body modification procedures including tanning, waxing, piercing, branding, scarification, genital beading, elective amputations, bodybuilding, tattooing, tongue splitting, non-surgical implants, plastic surgeries, trans-gender surgeries, and everything in between.

Why have they chosen to do this to their bodies?

MODIFY explores their thoughts on the difference between body modification and mutilation, their feelings on discrimination, addiction, religion and the legal limits regarding the right to choose what someone can or can’t do to their own body.
