Creepy Piercings Redux: Corset Piercing

One time, I posted about strange piercings. And now I present to you, ladies and gentlemen, the corset piercing:


Well, goodness, that looks a little uncomfortable.

These body corsets are made through the use of surface piercings, usually down the back or side (though I've seen cleavage, throat, leg, and very private ones). They began cropping up sometime in the 1990s, and are often used for photo shoots or BDSM play. They're intended to be temporary, since the piercings don't usually heal well/are often rejected. When in, the piercings require a lot of maintenance.

CatPeters, a Flickr member with a highly-photographed corset piercing describes her experience:

"I managed to keep mine for over a year and a half because I used surface bars all down my back with flattened balls. The slave rings were put on only when we were taking photos.

"There was a lot of sea salt soakings, doing laundry all the time to make sure my clothes and sheets were super clean, H2Ocean spray and not much bending over. In the end it was too much work to take care of so I took the surface bars out."





Would you get a corset piercing? Do you know anyone who's had one? Do you think they're sexy?

I'm not a fan of corset piercings - they creep me out a bit because I hate how the skin looks pulled (*shudder*).

As for sexiness, I don't understand them because they cover up the groove down the centre of your back which is one of the nicest parts.

I guess it's all a matter of taste but they do seem an awful lot of work

Oh I HATE piercings like this. But I will say right now that a lot of piercings give me the heeby jeebies. I think it's fine if someone wants them but that someone better not make me look at it. Foreign objects in skin really gets to me. Even my ear piercings sometimes really weird me out.

ahem.

So in conclusion I would never get these. And I hear they are incredibly hard to take care for, might never heal, your body might reject them, etc. Just get a real corset!

Eek Gad! Those look awful! My back was crying out in pain looking at those. I just want to hug these girls and tell them there are prettier ways to modify their bodies... like exercise, certain tattoos, exfoliating, sexy fabric corsets, etc.

Personally, I have a debilitating fear of needles; when I see people with unusual piercings, it literally makes me nearly pass out. This one kid working at the grocery store had a safety pin in the skin fold between his index finger and thumb and I could barely finish paying for my groceries without hitting the floor. I know body modification is a personal choice, but these people must realize somewhere that it is deeply disturbing (if not literally sickening, in my case) to many people.

I think they're pretty but not for everyday wear, obviously (the very private one startled me!) I'd be so, so scared of tearing them out by accident :(

Bethany said...

Not only do they look really really painful, they are not cute! Especially the private one... I can't even imagine...

rubybastille said...

Eeeeeeeeeeek. I can understand their mystique and appeal, but it looks like you literally can't move when you're wearing it all laced up. What if you had to reach up for something? You'd shred up the skin on your back. *shudder*

Mary said...

I honestly can never understand why you would get somthing like that done, or even how you would lie down. Sure they look nice to an extent, but I can see why they need so much maitenence.

I'm all for doing what you want with your body, heck I want another set of ear piercings to go along with my first, but there is a limit. I would never even consider it.

I think that corset, back, and bellybutton piercings are really cool and pretty at the same time. BUT, I would never have that done to me.

Emily said...

see .. these kinds of piercing are just freaking disgusting. There not cute or sexy in anyway . And yeah you might think its a good idea .. just imagine the pain if it ripped. Some idiot girls like these need to realize that there pretty anyways ... this just practically ruins them .

Emily Cassandra said...

I'm going to mine when I turn 18 I love them I want mine with black lace

ThatOneChick said...

I just came across them the other day and think they are so cool. Even inspired a new character design of mine.

I would like to get them, but the maintenance is a bit too much for a lazy person like me. I'd hate to get gangrene just to look exotic, nah'mean?

facebook_101_nerdnerdnerd said...

I think that they are gross....however...they are also innapropriate! especially the private one! you could really hurt yourself and thats scary! I would never take the risk nad get that done and if you did...well....than u just fu**in CrAzY!!

Kim Dawn said...

That may be your opinion, but its all a matter of personal taste. To them it is making their bodies more appealing to themselves, and who are you to judge if it "ruins" them.
Besides, some people like pain. Its called masochism and its real. All a matter of personal preferance. Just because its unimaginable or disturbing to you, doesnt mean thats what it really is. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Kim Dawn said...

These are the most beautiful piercings ive ever seen and hope to get them by the end of the year<3 sooooo beautiful and totally worth the pain and maintenance^.^ ive had my heart set on these for a while now and im glad mom finally agreed to take me to get them professionally done:D
