Man Implants Magnets Into Arm to Carry iPod Nano

Using the iPod nano as a watch has become a growing trend in the Apple community ever since Steve Jobs joked about the idea when presenting the new smaller nano on stage. Most people do this by purchasing third-party iPod nano watch bands…but there’s always at least one guy who has to stand out!

Tattoo artist Dave Hurban of New Jersey has taken the concept to an insane new level (Gizmodo via iDownloadBlog), and has had four small magnets surgically implanted into his arm so he can carry his nano-watch band free!

This may look cool on YouTube, but embedding foreign objects into your arm is almost definitely a bad idea. Don’t try this at home!

    Well of course no one should do this to themselves, unless they are trained as this guy is.  However implanting things in your body isn’t dangerous so long as the proper materials are used and procedures followed.  In that case this is no more dangerous than having your ear pierced.  The magnets are fine as well since magnets are what’s used in things like cochlear implants.
