I saw David Blaine do this on his Magic Man special and then Criss Angel did something similar last night.

Blaine's version:
A piece of thread is swallowed and then is seen sticking out of his stomach. He then pulls the string out of his skin.

Angel's version:
Thread and needles are swallowed. Needles and thread are then together and pulled out of his belly button.

Im not really interested in Angel's version too much. If I were to do Angel's version, I would just do it the classic way of pulling it back out of my mouth. However, I am interested in Blaine's version. Does anyone have any information on this effect? A name/where to find it? Thanks.

Personaly, I loved Criss Angel's version more then David Blaine's. But that is just my opinion.

There have been many posts on the thread trick performed by blaine.
check out swami mantra by sam dalal.

but you probably don't want to try this 'trick'.

I do the same thing, only I make it come out my nose. Sometimes I wet it just to increase the grossness.
There are three things I love in life. Family and friends and magic. So I love doing magic for friends and family.

Do you happen to know the title of the effect in Tarbell? Thanks.

Nevermind, found it, thanks anyway! "Houdini's Famous Needle Trick" for others who are interested.

I love the original needle trick, and also love the idea of thread from stomach, I'm waiting for my swami-mantra to arrive for other such ideas, I cant wait!

Has anyone thought of trying something similar with razor blades. Image pulling them out of your throat, stomach or somewhere equally disturbing.

On tarbell number 7 ibelieve there is an effect where you swallow bunch of razor blades and piece of string and you can spit the blades back out with them tied to the string.
was very painful practicing though, very very, painful.
