Did you know that piercings are a form of jewelry and are now considered the modern fashion accessory? Piercings on the body symbolize a retaliation against normal laws of society. They express freedom and individuality in a conservative world. We all know that people get their ears, nose, lip, and tongue pierced, but what about other body parts?
The new method is something called a corset back piercing or ribbon piercing. This is done by inserting two rows of hooks on the back, typically of a woman. These hooks are then interwoven with ribbons, creating a dress or corset tied effect.
This look is a combination of shocking, wild, and beautiful, creating a mixed bag of emotions. I would be very concerned about sleeping at night. What if one of the ribbons got caught on something and snagged? What if one of the ribbons untied and someone pulled on it? OUCH!
Has the piercing world gone too far? Are people striving just a bit too hard to be unconventional? You tell me? Leave me a comment on your thoughts and feelings of ribbon piercings.
