Michelle is proof that corset piercings, done correctly, are perfectly capable of surviving into the longterm. At nine months old it’s quite well healed and looking very healthy.
It’s winter, I can’t put the rings on myself, and I’ve lost all the ribbon — excuses, excuses. I still can’t go through a good sized party in my home town (or college come to think of it) where someone doesn’t ask to see my back or tell someone else that they just need to see that metal I have. I almost always make people touch it — it makes the night just that much more fun.
I know I’m always asking people I’ve just met to touch my piercings too, but the only piercings I have are below the belt so the context is different.
