    i dont particularly care for piercings. i think they tend to look gaudy and silly. then again my ears are at a 2 guage and my nose is pierced, so maybe im just being hypocritical. either way, i dont care alot for piercing, forking your tounge or any of that shit, but i am growing a bit of an interest in that fish hook hanging shit. i could honestly see myself getting pretty into that in the future. im completely down with the desire to master your body and break down your threshhold of pain. once youve let go of everything, you hold everything an perhaps i dont need to hang upside down with meat hooks in my back to learn that, but then again, maybe i do...

    Hey Seeking,
    Are you talking about ritual suspension? I want to do that so bad. I have a pierced lip and my ear lobes are stretched to a 0 gauge. I’ve always been interested by tribal cultures, but I don’t think I would join a “religion” strictly dedicated to body modification.

    yup. im not familiar with the 'proper' term for it, but yeah, thats what im talking about. 'sundance ritual' or whatever they call it. i wouldnt go so far as to say im completely sold on it, but its definitely something im looking forward to finding out more about an perhaps one day trying. youve never lived till you die ya know? i just gotta take it one step at a time...

    butthen again... neither is house music.

    yeah, but i dont have any eagles talons, so instead i'll use meat hooks, chains, and the same self destrucive adventurism that lead me into the world of self inflicted accupuncture. fuck it, i have fun.

    As much as I enjoy being pierced, I think the whole rites of passage stuff is going to far, in my case. I do enjoy learning about it though, and Iwouldn't rule it out.

    i've had my uvula (the little ball in the back of your throat), my tongue, labret, ears @ 2ga, nipples and belly button.. i eventually had to take my labret and tongue out because they were wearing away my gums. i took my eyelets out because I was sick of people saying "ouch, did that hurt?", took my nipples out because after a year, one started to heal out and i didn't want it to leave a scar, and the uvula was nearly impossible to clean so that came out too.

    i think body modification is great in that it's a way to decorate your body, but i can't say i think it does anymore good than it does harm. i think it's silly someone would want to make a religion out of it.

    ive been looking into suspenshion for a while now, from what ive heard its a very cool experience.

    seeking, you might want to look thu this website http://www.suspension.org/ or http://www.iwascurred.com

    And the church isnt a religion, its only a church for the freedom and legal power that churches get. If we get enough members it could end discimantion against people with tattoos and piercings.
