Piercings, body mofications, plastic surgery, etc...

Generally seems pretty harmless, relative to other trends in our society:

But what do you make of this?

It's a wierd combo. I know people that do severe body modification (hanging by hooks, etc.) as part of their spiritual practice and in clubs... but this seems alot to go through for the sake of fashion. I like real corsets better, thank you.
What's next, nailing stilletto shoes to your feet? Ouch.

I use to represent a manufacturer of silicone implants, primarily breast implants. There were many other types of implants designed for various cosmetic reasons. Many things that would cause a similar reaction to the cited piercing.

I would avoid and discourage body modifications that have no utilitarian purpose (such as eye correction, etc.).

Doesn't it bother anyone that the area where the hooks are is clearly inflamed? I find it extremely disturbing.

Usually I'm fascinated with body piercings, but those pictures turned my stomach.

Considering my reaction to various pictures of body piercings in the past, and judging from the comments in this thread, I think I'll pass on checking out those pictures.

I'm with the others in this thread-that kind of thing is definitely not for me, but if someone else wants to do that kind of stuff to their body, that's entirely up to them.

I think those piercings had been just put in when the photos were taken. It looks as if the people are still at the piercing/tatoo shop, and reading a bit about corset piercing apparently that particular type of piercing is removed shortly after being put in.
