Oh my, this is a little strange. On the outskirts of the body modification scene, what you can see in the gallery is called 'piercing' or 'pulling' play. This is an act where ritual fans utilize their piercings for ‘acts’ that will pull on their body mod--for example, weight lifting.
The man in the gallery above is able to lift a child with his earlobes. I guess if you are going to be pieced anyway, then at least this form of extreme play lets you have a little fun with your piercings!
