21-year-old Dave Hurban, tattoo artist and piercer at Dynasty Tattoo in Newfield, New Jersey, implants four magnets into his arm.

The reason? To hold his iPod Nano (that also works as a watch) in place without having to need a strap.

Dave Hubard tells us that the four magnets, also called "micro-dermal anchors" are quite common in body piercing.

"I just took the ends of magnets and actually adhered them behind the iPod---and that's how they click into my skin." Hubard explains. "It's definitely not the worst piercing i've ever done to myself." He adds.

Since its completion in April 2012, he reports that it's healed well within 2 weeks and he can finally do jogs with his ipod in place. Ever since the rare procedure that took 30-gut-wrenching minutes (check out the video below!), he says his friends and even his mom are positive about it---rather amazed of this truly rare invention in the flesh.

Watch the video and see for yourself! :) (Warning: Graphic!)

We hope you enjoyed this unusual story. Humanity is indeed highly evolving. Let's do it for the good.
