Well, well, well, we thought we had seen it all. Apparently, though, there's an endless supply of reasons to ask, what the? These crazy kids with their tats and piercings and X-treme lifestyles are taking over the world. So it shouldn't come as too big a surprise that they would share their expressions of individuality with their favorite vehicular companions. And we're not talking about spinners and struts, or neon and cantaloupe launchers, we mean taking their rides to the extreme, just as they push, prod and poke their own bodies.

As automotive trends go, we're holding back on offering an opinion about just how cool this will end up being, but it has led to some very interesting vehicles. Obviously we've seen a lot of different takes on personalization, but this is taking things a bit further than most. Some Southern California dealers have even gotten into tattooing cars. But here we are talking about a young team of So Cal aftermarket entrepreneurs who have decided to focus on rings and studs. Available now, for the bumper of your choice, car piercings.

They come in a range of different finishes and designs, and are featured on the trend's own website, www.pierceyourride.com. The construction and installation seems fairly straightforward, maybe a weekend job. They make an already rugged-looking pickup look even tougher, and even do wonders for improving the look of the less macho Scions featured in the gallery. Check it out yourself.

Thanks to Austin for the tippage!

      Up next, a car cover that simulates the swept-to-one-side emo hairstyle, and a CD player that only plays new AFI.

      After that, tribal armbands for your dog!!!

      (I'd rather buy a shock yellow Hummer, hook it up with huge curbfeelers, and blast the Benny Hill themesong all day long)

      I guess there are a lot of people out their that will want these items. Thats just great but, if they have so much extra money around and don't know what to do with it, other than wasting it why not give it to a charity put it away for retierment even give it to someone who really needs money for food or heat this winter...........DON'T BE A FOOL PEOPLE....WAKE UP!!!!

      On real trucks that actually haul things they're called tie downs. On real race cars they are tow loops. When found on the inside they're called grab bars.

      What we have here is just another example of the solely decorative and otherwise purposeless trappings of a social structure full of fakes and personal emptiness.

      Hopefully these act like real piercings and can get infected and.. Wait I can't even make a good joke about this. The original idea is just that retarted.

      Thats a good one!
