This is an image I did a few years ago during a massive sinus infection… I was looking for any relief for the pain and pressure I was feeling. I remember hearing of Trepanation which they used quite a bit back in the oldtimey days, where they drill hole in your scull to let out evil spirits and stuff. In recent days this procedure is still being used to increase your consciousness…

    Hi Morf – I remember seeing this on devianart, yes? I’ve got sinus trouble at the moment – do you think it would help? This looks quite painful… hehe

  • Yes Colleen, i do have this one on deviantart as well… I hear they now have a non-drowsy over-the-counter remedy in pill form now… who knew?? lol

    Holy Sh**!! did you feel better afterwards? :-)..I’ve been watching bits of a series about the history of surgery..some of the things they’ve done are pretty hard core..the first facial reconstruction was done something like 2000 years ago..waaaay before anaesthetic..YEOWCH!
    great image.I love the shock value in your pics.

  • Yeah it’s amazing some of the things they used to do… and one day people will look back on our “ground breaking” science and medicine and have the same reaction!! lol

    Looks like the drill they used in France to remove cavities in my teeth, back in the dark ages of dentistry when I was a small kid.

  • Eeeeekk… hehe

    Ugh! I hate sinus infections! I want to do the same thing or pull my teeth out!

    Whoa sweetie, this is amazing – you have this real knack of making this stuff eerily believable!
    Trepanation huh? Perhaps I should give it a go – you know – release some of those evil spirits I have lurking around inside my head – may even ‘increase my concsiousness’, could help during those mornings when insomnia has visited the previous night :) Love It!

  • Thank you missheels!! Before attempting an operation like this I must advise you clean the area with a moist towelette first to prevent infection… :D
