Mystical Mods is an at-home business run by Michael Thomas. He was a 5-pack a day smoker who got into vaping by merely making these beautiful creations. He started by working on pin blanks and Mod Blanks. It then blossomed into what he is doing today (and this business continues to grow).
Michael really did not like the taste of the vapes he had started out vaping. That was because when he first started, he did not have the right juice or the right nicotine level. After some adjustments, he took to vaping and is now a 3mg vaper. He feels grateful for making the change and with his business feels as if he can contribute to the vaping community.
So what makes these mods so special? First, they glow in the dark. Everything he makes is self-taught as well as tested. The blanks Michael makes are highly unusual as well as the mod itself. Thus, this is the reason it is a Mystical Mods.
Michael’s journey into modding is kind of an interesting one. With the advent of 9-11, he felt like he needed to do something, especially when it came to safety. Thus, he came to develop a glow-in-the-dark safety product and patented them. He did this for 10-12 years while his father was fighting a battle with emphysema. When his father died (which was 3 years ago), he lost his interest in safety and decided to return to automotive body repair work. However, he even lost his passion for that as well and quit.
When Michael’s father died, he left some woodwork tools behind. Michael was never really into them but after his father passed away, he felt as if he needed to do something that would make him feel close to his father. Therefore, he started playing around and of course, the rest is history. Of course, when he started, many people thought that he was a little crazy and that he would never make it. That has never stopped him and with the helped of an Indonesian-based company who has helped him with inspiration and knowledge. Thus, Mystical Mods is not only an art, but it has also become his life’s passion.

has also become his life’s passion.
Pricing wise, Mystical Mods range from $350 – $600. Generally, Michael can churn out 20-30 mods per week. This would surely make sense since the demand for his Mystical mods has been so high as of late. While the prices may seem a bit high, they are worth it because they are not mass-produced and each mod is cared for individually. Thus, the big attraction is not only the individuality of the product but also the unique glow-in-the-dark novelty.
However, you need to be careful and aware that Michael cannot honor all requests on designs or materials you might want him to use. In fact, he has had to turn down certain wood block materials because of his unfamiliarity with the product. They have included rare tusks, human remains and ashes of pets.
If you are remotely interested in buying Mystical Mods, you can do several things. First, you can go to the Mystical Mods website at http://www.mysticalmods.com and get an general idea of the styles of mods that are available. You can also order directly from the website of mods that are already pre-made.
Since he started vaping, Michael has stated that he does not have the smoker’s cough as he used to in the morning and feels young again. Business wise, Michael has gotten and continues to get great advertisement for his work from the VOV channel on VapeTV and now here in Vape News. He has only been at it for 4 short months and feels that the true philosophy of his mod work is doing what he loves and to survive while doing it. In fact, if anyone has a passion in something, they can accomplish it besides what the naysayers say. Michael’s products and his company are a perfect example of this fact.
