Body piercing and modification has become like a sport where keeping up with the trends and shock value are a must. Here is an interesting entry in the world of piercings. It’s called corset piercing. The idea is to have a series of piercings done in a strategically-placed pattern on the back or the stomach so that ribbons or other materials can be laced-up through the piercing framework.

The design is best worn with a backless shirt if you want to show it off for full effect. This website outlines the dangers of having it done incorrectly and ending up with scarring and no corset, so if you’re thinking about having it done, read this article first. As far as this trend goes, it’s a little too circus carnival freakshow for my taste, but I’m sure it’s doing a good job of appealing to the masses.
