Fad or For Real
people are doing to their bodies for the sake of their own individual perception of beauty, has taken on more than just a
mere fad status, but a full blown epidemic.
The latest in body piercing
is corset piercing. It consists of a row of loops, pierced down the back on both sides. Ribbons are laced through and tied
as the original corset of olden days.
Ribbons range from narrow to wide
and offered in various colors and textures. Girls are having corset piercing done for proms, and others add the corset adornment
to their already, prominent display of tattoos and body piercing collection.
started as ear piercing, advanced to nose piercing and belly button piercing, then soon escalated to eyebrow piercing, lip
and tongue piercing, and as far down the human body to genital piercing, including nipples.
That was an outrage to the older generation who forgot that they, themselves, once swallowed live goldfish.
How is this body alteration any different from the Lizard Man, who is going through his own
body modification, transformation project?
People were in awe of him when
he first appeared on television, showcasing a split tongue. He now proudly shows off filed teeth sharpened to points, a scalp
tattoo, eyelid tattooing, tongue tattoo with a split tongue as mentioned, feet tattooing, X tattooing by the infamous Spider
Webb tattoo artist, lip tattoo, fingertip tattooing, and ear tattooing. Of course his entire body is almost entirely covered
in tattoos now.
The latest craze before corset piercing was the skin implants,
which didn't stick around too long in the fad era due to its higher risk of infection and problems. But then again, many
people didn't have problems and there's always someone that believes they won't either.
With the average, younger generation of today, that are adorning numerous ears piercing, eyebrows, nose, lip, tongue,
nipples, genital, the new corset piercing for women (and men won't be far behind with a male version, I'm sure), tattooing
every spot imaginable on the body from scalp to toes... all that is left for them to do to themselves, is modifications like
the original Lizard Man.
Soon, we won't be able to recognize the humans
from the reptiles, or whatever animal they choose to mimic.
