    I wish I was friends with Sruli. I'd even let him take a pound of my flesh for some sort of interesting hat.

    Dedication. I love the expression on his face as he leaves the room.

    One of one asshat. Any irregularites, scarring, and hair are intentional.

    This is quite disturbing but apparently it could be yours.....below is from the Youtube upload

    In a documented one-time surgery-performance, a plastic surgeon removed a 110mm x 10mm strip of skin from the abdomen of Sruli Recht. The subcutaneous tissue and epidermis was then scraped from the dermis, which is stripped of fat by hand and blade, before being salted, and tanned with an Alum solution. The resulting leather from the dermis was prepared for use in the ring, Forget Me Knot.

    SR661 - Leather made from the abdomen skin of Sruli Recht, mounted to a 24 carat gold band.
    There will be only one of this piece made.
    The Forget Me Knot band is presented with a DNA certificate and a complete DVD documentary of the process, surgery and interviews with the involved team.

    This is fascinating to say the least. One of the only examples of a designer truly putting himself into his work. Certainly bridges the gap that some perceive between fashion and art.

    Once again Sruli continues to be one on the forefront of pushing the boundaries of design, innovation and creativity. You can't get much more invested and dedicated to your craft than this.

    I'd love to see more photos of the ring and the entire process (not just the tissue harvest) up to the mounting of the skin on the ring.

    The surgeon side of me can appreciate the nice closure of the incision afterwards and the good choice of angle and location of the donor site :)

    I hope the video generates more dialogue and discussion. Usage of human skin for products has a storied past. Of course the documented harvesting and tanning of human skins at Buchenwald both to preserve tattoos and also for appliances such as lampshades. Old tomes have also been known to have been bound in human skin (some of which are present and on display in Philly at the Mutter museum). This was known to be done for medical books such as anatomy texts way back when as well. The technique known as anthropodermic bibliopegy.

    I'd love to read about Sruli's inspiration/concept for the piece and what spurred him to create it.

    I'd also like to see the rest of the process (not to mention some info on the future buyer). fascinating. gross, but fascinating.

    Agreed, I'm much more interested in the process following the surgery.

    This could be the new form of extreme body modification. Lets start a business...we just need a designer, plastic surgeon, a couple folks on the business end. Get in while it's hot.
