A NEW Jersey body piercer has implanted metal studs into his wrist to magnetically attach his iPod.

Mr Hurban, 21, implanted four small titanium studs into his left wrist and attached four magnets onto the back of his ipod nano, which allows the device to be secured to his wrist without using a strap.



Mr Hurban, whose other body piercings include two on his lip and one on each ear, said he was inspired to get the specialised piercings because it would be a world first.



"In today's world, everybody has already done everything twice. Everyone's looking for the next thing and this is something no one has ever done before," he said



Hurban says he was inspired to get the specialised piercings because he has always wanted a strapless watch, and he learned the ipod had a clock interface.



“It’s way simpler than you think it is,” said Hurban, who posted his “How To” video on YouTube, where it has been viewed nearly 900,000 times in two weeks.
