my corset piercing

Have you ever wanted something so bad you could taste it? I'm sure you have. Well at least I know I have, and that was a corset piercing. It all started 7 years ago when i pierced my nose. I was 13, it was not an acceptable thing to do, so of course, I did it. Thats where my love of piercings began. Now lets fast forward to me being 17. One of my favorite hang outs, the local tatoo/piercing shop. As i was sitting there leafing through a Savage magazine, I seen the most beautiful thing. A chick with six rings going down the small of her back, and to ice the cake, a ribbon tying them all together. I was instantly in love. I just couldn't get over how much attention it brought to her back, accentuating it. Drawing attention to a body part that many probably dont give a second thought to. It was at that moment that I decided I must have one. It's absolutly gorgous. Now here comes the sad part of my story. I made the unfortunate mistake of getting involved with someone who despised body mod in any form. So for two years I didn't get nothing(puppy love is so blinding.) At this point I had a tongue, nipples,nose, belly button, you know the normal. And even though I loved body mod, I didn't further myself in this art. Then came the wonderful day when I got smart and left him. To celebrate I got another tongue, and a labret, and a second belly button. Then I thought it was about time I got to my corset which I had been dreaming of for a couple of years now. So I started looking for a shop that would make my dream come true. Since where I live there are no tatoo/piercing shops around, I had to search in other towns. My first place was Purple East. They said yeah they could do it. My spirits soared. And then they told me the price, my spirits dropped. So I went to another place Mickys to a guy by the name of Rob. He had done my second nipple going vertically, and he did a wonderful job. So I decided to ask him about it. I'm glad I did because he told me yes he could do it, and when he told me the price, I was on cloud nine. So fast foward about a month to the actual piercing day. As I'm walking to the shop the only thing going through my mind is, I am finally getting this done. Oh yeah, and I wonder what this is going to feel like. Well as i'm standing there getting my back measured with rob telling me exactly what he's doing as he's doing it, the adreniline is pumping madly through my body. Rob tells me to lay down and we're ready for the actual piercing. He couldn't use clamps because there was not enough skin on my back. Then he tells me to take a deep breath and BAM! the first needle is through. I can't even describe the sensation of having a needle sliding through the skin on your back. But it was a delightful one. I guess that's just one of those things you have to feel to understand. He did this three more and we were done for the day. There was little soreness much to my surprise, I thought it would be a little more painful than what it was. My conch piercings were more painful than that was. The following Friday we finished it up.I couldn't believe it, I finaly had my corset piercing after three years of waiting. The bottom four hurt a little more than the top four.I was actualy dreading the very bottom set, because I thought those would be the most painful. But it was actualy the set above the bottom that were the most painful out of all eight. So there I was with eight bars in my back. (Bringing me to a grand total of twenty seven piercings.) Now were waiting to see how well they are going to take, as I'm sure you know this particular piercing has a tendency to grow out. But I had it pierced with a special kind of plastic (thats why they're barbells and not rings.) Now I'm waiting for them to heal and hoping that they are not going to grow out. I can't wait for the hoops to go in. And of course I can't wait for the ribbon to be laced through. Then it will truly be complete. So far there're healing pretty good . The top one on the right side look like it might not take. But if it dosn't then i'll just get it repierced. All the rest are doing wonderful. They're itching a little and that's probly the most annoying thing about them right now. I can sleep on them and lean back on them and it dosn't bother me any. I am in love with the way they accentuate my back and draw attention to it. I really do enjoy them. And everyone who has seen them seems to also. I've had quite a few compliments, and of course the shock value, OH MY GOD WHY IN THE HELL DID YOU DO THAT!! I always say, why not. You adorn your body how you want to, I adorn my body how I want to. Well that is my experiance with my corset piercing. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed getting it done. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do next. I'm thinking possibly some pocketing. Or maybe some branding. Who knows. Theres just so much beautiful body mod out there it's hard to choose.
