The history of corseting was to mold and shape a woman’s body. It symbolized conformity. The term “straight laced” is a good example of this attitude, and the corset has been viewed as a restraining force, standing for social order and accepted morality.
The irony of modern day corseting, via the way of piercing, is that its message is actually the opposite. This uniquely beautiful new trend shouts from the roof tops, I am my own person! I am fully aware of my body, my beauty, my individuality, my sexuality and I make my own choices.
Like other piercings, this one is available as a temporary addition. There are faux rings that clip the skin and allow for the ribbon to be threaded through. This is an awesome alternative for a special evening out, or to test the waters before you take the plunge.
